Reviewed 4 June 2014

We've stayed in this hotel 3 times during the past 2 years. It's always been clean and quiet for us and the employees have been courteous and professional. Good restaurants nearby including Starbucks. This location has easy access to two main Interstate Highways.

I have stayed here several times. The front desk personnel are always friendly; the breakfasts are above average and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. It is close to restaurant's, I80 and shopping. It is a quiet hotel run by local folks who take care of their guests.

Near plenty of stores, but was hard to believe that all the rooms were full when we tried to check in at noon before we headed to starve rock. There was maybe 10 cars in the parking lot. Both days there we only saw a few employees, one behind the desk and 2 at breakfast.they were all very nice though. 15 min drive from the park.

We stayed this place to visit the Starved Rock state park (5 minutes away). Walmart and Kohl are across the street. Marshall and Bergner's are one mile away. We walked to a bar/restaurant (forgot the name) next to McDonald (2 minutes from hotel), the food is great and is not expensive. The staff was great, the room is perfect. Hot breakfast with to go box, business center with two computers, huge swimming pool and hot spa, We couldn't have asked for more. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Book earlier, cancel it before 6PM same day with no penalty. I saw the price increase from $120 to...

This is a good place when visiting the Peru/ La Salle. It's also a good place to stay when visiting Starved Rock State Park. The state park is only 15- 20 minutes away (via I-80). I could find no major flaws for this motel. It's clean. The staff was very helpful. The manager, I think, Ashley was a total sweetheart. The rooms were nice sized. The breakfast was nice. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THEY HAVE NICE, COMFORTABLE BEDS. It's pet friendly. It's located near "tons" of restaurant and shopping choices. In the past when visiting Starved Rock we've stayed at the lodge located at Starved Rock ( which is expensive and the rooms are crummy) and in Ogelsby (limited restaurant choices and some very average hotels).

The only negative comment would be about the pool and spa. The pool is very average sized and their spa wasn't the warmest whirlpool I've experienced. On the other hand, all of these things are fairly typical today.

My husband has been staying here for over a month on business. I spent a week with him. The staff is very pleasant the rooms are taken care of by a husband and wife team.
They are the only people who clean the rooms 7 days a week. They are friendly and make sure that the rooms are clean and make every effort to make sure that your stay is pleasant. The area has everything to offer from shopping to eating. My 7 day visit was Grand I didn't want to leave. There are other places close by to stay but they can't beat the price and the service. The breakfast area is large and they have a good variety of food to chose from. I really hope he is still there when I get a change to go back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice. You get a view from just about any floor. However the laundry room is on the...

After a rather nail biting trip on I-80 our stay at the Holiday Inn Express turned into a pleasant experience. The cheerfulness of the staff upon our arrival was a very bright spot. Our room was very nice and expansive with the jet stream soaking tub, just the ticket to relax after our dinner and to enjoy a restfully and relaxing sleep. Soaking rains, high winds and lightening did not detract from the coziness we felt inside our room. Our breakfast the following morning was very good and featured a lot of choices. Again the staff was very helpful and cheerful to us and the other guests who were eating. The seating area was ample for the guests and we did not feel crowded at all. Definitely a plus in anybody who is traveling and looking for a place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side as there is less highway noises.
