I stay here quite often too "get away from stress" & I have been to just about every 'affordable' hotel in Rockford. And even though most websites list this as a 1 or 2 star hotel I think it deserves 3 or 4.
First: its real easy to find right off the interstate just take a left at the stop light and a right at the next light.
Second: in my personal opinion it also has the most friendly staff in Rockford especially Donita & Nancy! They all (except for one) go out of their way too make sure you are taken care of and are there if you need anything.
Third: every room I have been in so far has been very clean and easy too relax.
Fourth: they have a descent breakfast its not a hot buffet if that's what you are looking for, but they have a good selections such as waffles, hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels, donuts, cereal, juice, milk ect.
Fifth: Giving how early this winter came and how cold it has been like 30 below windchills it is a very warm place and easy to operate heater.
First: Tv stations are pretty basic but you still get a good selection. Some of the good ones they are missing from line-up are A&E (I love my Duck Dynasty :-( but unfortunately they don't get that channel), Disney, tv land, and syfy. But those are just a few I miss lol. If you are really into sports though they do have a lot of espn channels about 6 of them to be exact.
Second: its a long hotel and the exercise room is on the other end of the hotel if by the time you get to it you probably have burned all the calories you were intending too anyway lol
Third: some of the plumbing has problems in a few of the rooms for example toilet constantly running or shower head being a little weird to turn on.
Fourth: Microwave or fridge cost extra unless the room you get has one already in it but its only like $3-$5 though. This isn't the worst thing in the world but it can be a hassle if you are looking to heat things up or keep things cold.
Fifth: the only member of the staff that can be unfriendly or friendly when she feels like it is Ashley. Most of the time though she kinda makes you feel like you are bothering her. But as I said before the rest of the staff is perfect.
All in all for the price and the location it beats any other similar hotel in walking distance
