This is the oldest hotel in Illinois. Located downtown on Main Street with parking inside allows you ability to walk to shops and restaurants, but. Decor is floral wallpaper, floral drapes, floral bedspreads. The wattage in lamps wouldn't even allow me to read my book in the afternoon or evening. Take a miner's helmet with a light on it if you plan to stay there. Not a happening place. We felt like we were in a Stephen King novel and were the only people staying there. I would definitely opt for a B&B or a place farther out that was more modern and had people walking around in it. My husband got in the shower and orange rust-like water came out, a testament to how long it had been since being used. Also difficult to haul in luggage from your car in the garage. Not well designed. I know. It's old.
