On a recent roadtrip my son and I stayed at the Braidwood Motel for one night as it was the ONLY place that looked like it was worth staying at in the area after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Our room, albeit very small (but with no coffee pot), was clean and tidy.The... More

We stayed here just for one night while driving to La as Brits it was our first time pulling up to a roadside motel with no booking and hoping they had a room. We checked trip advisor and was a little weary due to the last review. But as it was starting to get late and we didn't really want... More

We were a little dubious about staying here after the previous 1 star scathing review in Jan 2014. I'm pleased to say we ignored this and stayed here on our way down Route 66. We stayed in room 10, it was clean, had 42" flat screen TV, fridge, microwave and free WiFi. The person on reception was very welcoming and... More

Had to pull off of I-55 due to white-out conditions. This was the only place we could find and had to seek shelter with our 6 month old. This place is disgusting (or at least room #6 was). The place smelled of cigarettes with countless cigarette burns on the floor. The window unit, air-conditioner/heater was barely enough to keep us... More

My mother first stayed here for 5 weeks while her house was under construction. The staff was very accommodating and made her stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms were immaculate, rates are very reasonable. My husband and I recently stayed there while visiting the area and the experience was the same. You couldn't ask for more accommodating and kind... More

As others have said, the motel is an older one - a motor court design - but the owner has really done a great job updating the individual units, outfitting them with flat screen TV's, high speed internet, a microwave and fridge. Room service comes through every day even on longer stays and the rooms are left like you are... More

This is a small 15 unit motel. Old construction, but owner has put a lot of effort and money in upgrades. Very clean and manager is very hospitipal. Keeps rooms and grounds immaculate. A very reasonable weekly rate. It was a pleasure staying there. I was there 6 weeks. It's refreshing to see small motels with pride in their property!!!... More

My only other stay at the Braidwood was in 2005. The condition of low priced independents can deteriorate quickly and I was glad to see that hadn't happened here. The room was clean and the place was obviously being maintained. I think there was even a small improvement or two. This is a sub-$50 motel so expectations need to be... More
