Reviewed 10 June 2014

I just stayed at this hotel for six days, it was recommended by the Southern Illinois Miners baseball team. I would not recommend it for more than one night. The room was just okay, very old place. The bathroom was clean, however the towels were threadbare and some terribly stained. The carpet needs cleaning, a large stain right outside the bathroom door. The room was never cleaned while I was there, someone would knock on my door around 10am and ask if I needed clean towels. I complained that the bathroom sink didn't drain, someone came immediately and worked on it, worked fine for a day or two but again clogged up. The internet worked once in a while but not consistent at all. Breakfast was okay, very runny eggs.

Old, not very clean, mismatched furnishings, questionable people hanging around, a hole in the wall bar on the property, internet didn't work and when I called the front desk they said it was just fine and to wait a few minutes and check it again. All in all I didn't feel safe here and was also worried my vehicle was going to get broken into. Find a different place!

Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

I expected something better after checking the rating on the website. The room was generally okay except for a few problems. We stayed in a pet friendly room. For the $10 fee, we had a laminate floor that was dirty. A few steps and we picked up a considerable amount of dirt particles on our bare feet. The room smelled smokey even though we were staying in a smoke free room. I spent the night fighting with the fitted sheet. It was quite obvious from the beginning that a full size fitted sheet had been stretched over the queen sized bed. Of course the sheet didn't stay in place. It showed very little concern for our comfort. I would recommend passing on this place.

We were on the way to Chicago and stopped here. The location was good. As we entered the hotel front looked good. Desk clerk was friendly. Room was clean, had a good odor. We slept good. With the price the stay was affordable. Swimming pool was clean and warm.

I stayed there on January 11 2014 and I think this is a good place with the price. Location was convenient. Room was decent, smell good, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was fresh with biscuits and gravy, eggs, bagels, cereals, Muffins. Staff was very friendly.Overall my stay was pleasant.

Room Tip: Good place with the price!!

We booked this hotel through Hotwire. We paid through Hotwire. When we checked in, the desk clerk asked to run our card again "It's policy"
A few minutes later we checked and the hotel had also charged our card. We contacted the manager/owner and he eventually reversed the charges.
The room they gave us was filthy, had a yappy dog next door, and the room light was burnt out. We asked for another room. It had a working light, but it was also filthy. Hair on floor of bathroom, in bathtub, and dust bunnies under and on top of everything.
Not a pleasant stay in any respect.
