Good hotel for the price. I would stay there again.

Under new management. Staff was friendly, efficient, helpful. Location is great. Busy graduation weekend, still the service was very good. It’s a budget place, nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable.

Friendly employees,basic free breakfast,on their website they advertised having a jacuzzi in the room, but do they really have rooms with jacuzzis?The room feels like it could use a bit of an upgrade, some of the light fixtures were not functioning, as well as the hairdryer not working. But you get what you pay for.

Good customer service excellent breakfast good location and also good cleaning room

I checked in to avoid the snow. The front desk staff was very friendly and informative.

The room appeared clean, the bed comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. I slept well. But the room had a VERY strong mildew smell. I got used to it after about 5 minutes of entering room each time, so decided to live with it given the very reasonable rate I was given. I mentioned it to the staff as I was leaving and was told that the smell came from the carpet (lots of exposure to wet kids, wet towels coming from the pool) and that all the carpeting was in process of being replaced with hard flooring. To avoid the mildew smell, the staff person advised me to ask for a room that had been updated next time. Which I will do!

Great staff and location. Room was big and clean. Bathroom on the smaller side but okay. No real views but it was minutes away from the locations we were visiting in Champaign

All around good value! Excellent breakfast! Clean, well-maintained room.

This is a very inexpensive hotel and you get what you pay for. However, I don't think it's too much to ask that the room not feel old and tired, the linens not be torn (sheet was) and the towels as thin as paper. Also, the walls are poorly insulated for sound, and you can hear people raising their voices next door or upstairs. Also, if you're not going to use actual metal flatware for breakfast, at least give me a plastic fork that doesn't collapse when I try to eat my waffle. That's simply opting for cheap to the exclusion of all else. On the plus side, the staff was very nice, and the place is very clean. If price is the paramount concern, it's fine. Otherwise, I wouldn't stay here again. Clearly this hotel needs to have a little money spent on amenities to bring it up to snuff.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, near UIUC. You get good breakfast. waffels, bagels, cofee, juices etc. But they keep same thing everyday, no change in items.

Room was nice and cozy, but just hard to modify the temperature of the room.

Other than a blizzard, the stay was positive. I would stay again and advise family and friends that the hotel is clean and safe.

solid hotel with adequate amenities,good breakfast,rooms clean a little outdated. front desk staff helpfiul

The hotel staff are always nice. This is the third time we have stayed here while visiting family. Room was clean and fresh. Would recommend.

not much time spent in hotel but it's fairly clean.

IT IS LOCATED NEAR UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBAN CHAMPAIGN. THE STAFFS ARE KIND AND IT SERVES SIMPLE BREAKFAST.

lost reservation, asked for non-smoking, all that was avail was smoking. 2 nights, both filled with police being called due to loud noises and fighting.
