The hotel is very nice , the bed was comfortable. They had a good breakfast. Easy quick check in and out , staff was friendly.

The hotel was fine. It was a bit pricey for being in Urbana. I didn't check the amenities ahead of time but could have used a microwave and fridge - had neither. Room was clean and roomy. The staff was nice. Breakfast was a bit below average for the chain. They ran out of eggs and took 30+ minutes to replace.

The hotel overall was average. The interior design is pretty bad but everything that you need is there. Pool, workout room. Didn't eat breakfast there so not sure how that was but the room was pretty small. The room seemed clean, again it was just the outdated furniture that threw me off.

Arrived late, check in was quick, room very nice and clean. TV was slow to change channels but other than that it was perfect for me and my trip plans.

Was a king room, very expensive so I assumed there would be refrigerator and microwave, but it didn't come that way. Was a short notice trip so didn't look as close as I should have. That being said, it was a very nice room, very clean and comfortable. Just that I have spent half that on equally nice rooms that included fridge, microwave, and jacuzzi.

Clean, comfortable, good staff, pool, and free breakfast. Nice.

I stayed for a quick overnight. It was a great stay! The breakfast was wonderful! I was very happy with the service and would definitely stay again.

I was pleasantly surprised!! I 've visited our daughter at the Uof I several times and stayed at a variety of hotels. This by far exceeded my expectations. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and our rooms were perfect, from decor and amenities to providing us with enough towels. Yeahy..Thank you..We will stay there again.

Clean Hotel. Friendly staff, would stay again. Location is right off the freeway

Excellent, very nice, very helpful, great stay Will stay again

Room very spacious and clean. Maids did an excellent job. The location is great because you can take a bus or have the hotel shuttle you to and from campus (which is just due south a mile and a half).

Not as good! Child was playing games on guest computer with the approval of her mother and the Holiday Inn reception desk person. I needed to use it to print airline boarding passes. My express checkout statement was not delivered prior to my departure. My room key was cancelled out after my first night's stay. The sum of these shows service that is not up to what I am accustomed to receiving at most Holiday Inns.

Great Hotel and wonderful staff. Room was very clean, breakfast was great, and location was ideal.

I stayed at this hotel right off I 74 while attending a conference at the Univ. of Illinois. It was an easy drive of about 1.5 miles to campus, and I was thankful to have my car because the advertised shuttle operated from 8 am- about 3 pm. I was very impressed with the friendly service of the hotel staff. However, the morning that I was checking out, the invoice slipped under my door showed a balance of the full amount even though I had prepaid via Orbitz. This error was immediately rectified when I called, but it was a serious error! Other than that, the room and bathroom were large and clean. The acoustics were not great but the noisy children were quiet by 10 pm.

Hotel was very clean and room was comfortable. Hotel night staff were very friendly. Morning staff in the breakfast area were rude and it seemed like they were too busy to answer questions and hasty to clean up the breakfast area before posted breakfast time. I felt like an inconvenience by reading the paper and getting a second cup of coffee. Hotel Room was very clean and the breakfast nook w/ fridge was a plus. Decor very nice.

Got pretty much what we expected in a Holiday Inn Express. Amenities were good except that food was breakfast only. There are an number of choices available in the area including a regular Holiday Inn just across the parking lot. The only down side was that the sound insulation is not very good and we could hear too much form adjacent rooms.
