We stayed at the McGrady Inn for two nights in the Choir Loft. It is definitely the most unusual B&B we've ever stayed in. We didn't have any major problems, but there is definitely room for improvement. The Good: The building is an old church that has been converted into a B&B, and it has a lot of character.

We stayed at the Inn this past April and had generally a good experience. My only complaint was the continental breakfast, generic cereal and bad Walmart muffins. I expected more. Anyways we liked it enough so we booked the Choir Loft for graduation weekend 2015. I received a confirmation email stating we were booked for May 8th and 9th 2015,... More

Did not enjoy my stay at all. Nothing was clean....not the room, the sitting area, the breakfast area....anywhere. I had to make my own coffee and the coffee pots were disgusting. Breakfast consisted of stale leftovers. Needless to say, I ate somewhere else. Nothing seems to be organized. No one is ever around so if you have a question, you... More

I booked the whole Inn by reserving 3 rooms for my wedding party & family. I received confirmation and everything. Two months later I received a phone call and they stated they accidentally booked someone else (and their entire wedding & reception) at the Inn! I was really upset. I booked the rooms 5 months in advance of my wedding... More

Spacious building and comfortable beds. The management was very friendly and the rooms and main floors were immaculate. I Would highly recommend this place for a reunion or gathering. Easy walking to the old downtown and university.

Although this building is conveniently located, it was the most bizarre place we've ever stayed at. No one was ever around....not the Inn manager or owner. The doors were always unlocked day and night which made me very uncomfortable. The rooms were not clean at all and there was nothing special about the room at all....very bland bedding. I was...

This place is fantastic if you want to visit an EIU student, everything is walkable. The bathroom was kinda dirty, I think because a college student is the cleaning person, (and I think we all know how a teenage girl will clean... very lazily). But aside from the dirty bathroom this place is so unique it can't be passed up.

If you are a lover of B&Bs, McGrady Inn will likely leave you wanting more. Admittedly, McGrady is a beautiful building, if somewhat unconventional. It's an old church, so there's lots of stained glass, and rather than the feel of a home, you walk into what I assume was the fellowship hall. It has a very spacious and open feel.... More

This place was gorgeous! We rented it out for the whole weekend for our family to stay when they came to visit for a wedding. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

We had booked a room one year in advance for a special event and were called 3 weeks before the stay and told the room was no longer valid. They had decided to give our room to a large group who wanted to book the whole inn. Needless to say, we are paying twice the money and staying 50 miles... More
