Didn't want to spend a lot for lodging

Posted Feb 13, 2017
Pros: Clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. Near the interstate & truck stop yet reasonably quiet.
Cons: Parking is limited yet pick up trucks with trailers take up several spots.
Location: Near the interstate, shopping, and restaurants.
We were in town to assist my in-laws. Wanted a clean comfortable room without spending a lot for it on this trip. Other than the limited parking, our experiences with this hotel have been positive. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Very clean room and bathroom. Micro/fridge very helpful and clean.

Great place when passing through to just sleep. A reasonably priced hotel with no real frills.

terrible internet

Posted Feb 5, 2017
Could not sign on with out help from front desk. Would get shut down without reason and it was so slow--it was like the speeds of dial-up. Will never stay again.

5 HOURS FROM CHICAGO

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Pros: Clean rooms.
Cons: My only complaint is the staff seems to be on a constant smoke break & smoke outside the breakfast window (which still grosses me out).
Location: Sorry, we just stop to sleep.
Good place to stop at decent price on the way to Mississippi. Rooms clean. Hotel is usually full so book early.

A modern and updated room surprise from Super 8.

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Pros: Ease of check in, large room, pet friendly.
Cons: Nothing I could think of.
Location: A couple blocks off main highway. Numerous fast food, grocery stores, major shopping stores and restaurants.
Breakfast area was a little bit small.... but selection offered everything to start one's morning. Rooms were surprisingly modern and comfortable. (From the outside it seems like an "average" Super 8, but all the elements and decor in the room was very nice. Helpful, friendly and fast staff at every level. Was a last minute booking and wasn't expecting much. But this is certainly a hotel to not judge from the exterior... which was fine... The room was large with lots of lighting, desk, fridge, modern decor. Not the Ritz.... but a very reasonable price for a nice room, nice staff and easy access back to highway. If you're looking for a place to stay in the area this is an easy recommendation. Pet friendly and lots of places to shop and eat around the hotel. I was on the third floor which was quiet. Not sure if there was an elevator. Only mentioning this as I didn't notice one and that is something you need. Again they may have one and just didn't see if during our one night stay.

Needed hotel close to SIU. This was not. Even though it was only 20 minutes, was not convenient. That wasn't the real issue, the drive wouldn't have been an issue, except the hotel was mediocre at best. Mold lined the underside of toilet and pipe under sink. A beetle-like bug was crawling on floor. Room smelled musty and paint was peeling

Conveniently close to SIU college.

Posted Aug 21, 2016
I needed a hotel to stay after driving 6 hours to drop my son off at school. Location is right off Expressway I-57. Close to eat and shop.. The hotel it self was clean, and in nice fashion. Some at the front were not couteous as others but for the most part we enjoyed ourselves for the night.

Overrated

Posted Jun 28, 2016
Pros: On the plus side, the bathroom was very clean, and had been updated, probably in the past few years.
You get what you pay for. Beds are sagging, room smelled musty, a/c unit is old and therefore noisier than most. Room and bathroom are cramped.
