Acceptable is the word for this location. When I come back? Yes. What I consider other places? Yes. The staff seems nice personable, but I feel they overpriced the room , But I'm willing to let that slide since this is a proprietorship And not a chain. You don't get many bells and whistles, but you do get a fridge... More

This motel is affordable. This is not a fancy motel, but we were comfortable. Check in was easy and went quickly. We had a king sized bed and were comfortable. The wifi was fast and it was easy to connect. We would return if in the area.

It looks some improvements were done but you can tell that they don't clean thoroughly, especially sink & fridge. Sink was clogged & when I asked them to fix it, I was told the housekeeper went home for the day; no other room was offered (& they weren't booked). Went to turn heat on & it smelled like it was...

I was pleasantly surprised by the clean, updated rooms. Front desk lady was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was sparse but adequate. Overall a great value for the $50 price. If you're staying the night in Harrisburg, Illinois, I would recommend this place!

My mother passed away in the area and we needed a last-minute motel room for the week. We chose this motel because of the price, which was a good value. The staff we dealt with in the office were pleasant. However, there was absolutely no ventilation in the bathroom and when you took a shower it steamed up the whole... More

I stayed there last night after bicycling the tunnel hill trail from Karmak. Super clean rooms, very affordable and within walking distance of two good eating and drinking establishments. A great find after a long hot bicycle ride. The lady at the front desk was very nice although she wasn't excited about me keeping my bike in the room. They... More

Stayed a couple of nights while riding the Tunnel Hill State Trail. For $60 per night you can't beat it. Didn't bother with breakfast because there's really not much there and when I'm bike riding I need food. No frills at this hotel but restaurants within walking distance. Morello's Italian is hard to believe for such a small town.

It is not fancy, but neither is the price. If you're looking for a clean, standard, average priced hotel, this is a good choice. There is a mini-fridge and microwave in each room. Breakfast is cereal, coffee and toast. There is only one little table in the tiny lobby, but on a nice morning you can sit just outside on... More

Other than the picture of the motel on tripadvisor being incorrect this is a nice motel. The staff is great and it seems they recently renovated the rooms. The bed was comfortable and had a nice recliner. The whole room looked new.

Have stayed here twice, after staying elsewhere twice, and I will always stay here now. My folks used to stay here years ago, when it was the Gray Plaza, and I think it is better now than before. I am coming back regularly to visit my StepMom in the nursing home, and feel very good about finding that this motel,... More
