The hotel is close to Starved Rock which is probably it's best quality. Just as the rating states, the hotel was average. The room was average, the cleanliness was average, the staff was average, and the breakfast was average. So overall, if your not looking for anything fancy or above average, but just looking for a place to stay for... More

We stopped by for the night while traveling. The price was reasonable, room was clean, breakfast was good including hot items. There is also a pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is a very fine hotel for a nights rest.

The hotel was attractive and the room was good sized. The bed was reasonable comfortable and the hotel was quiet. The breakfast was typical of a value priced hotel. The "egg patties" were strange and tasteless. I am not sure that they had ever been near a chicken.

This hotel is good. I found it to be clean and everything was in working order. The bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly. The free breakfast was just ok, which what I was expecting for a hotel in this class of hotels. Even though our room faced the interstate (I-39), the hotel is far away enough from it that... More

My husband & I stayed there in July when we visited Starved Rock Park. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, staff was courteous, and we were able to grab a quick breakfast in the lobby before heading out for a hike in the park. The park was beautiful, we walked way too far (about 8 miles)...and oh, did that... More

Everything was good. Breakfast could have been a little better We went for a family wedding. It was beautiful weather. We also rented a car and got a free upgrade. Breakfast was a bit crowded and no butter. :(
