We booked thru Baylor Univ. for a basketball tournament. At the time our reservations were made, it was a Holiday Inn but apparently changed ownership to a Clarion in the interim. Upon arrival in my room, there were large brown stains on the curtains which I immediately reported to the front desk. The front entrance, hall ways, stair wells were... More

First issue was the name of the hotel changed from time of booking and stay. It would have been nice to be notified so that locating would have been easier. Convienient location once I found it. Ice machine did not work on my floor or the one below so had to go to the first floor. The Air Conditioner in... More

Very friendly staff, really good food available & we were totally impressed how clean the room was & how nice the bed was. Definitely want to remember this hotel so when we are traveling between Idaho and Ohio again we can use this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend while attending a wedding. First of all it is no longer a Holiday Inn, it is a Clarion Inn but since I did a pre-pay we thought we would keep our reservation. The elevator had actual hand prints in mud on the door and walls inside. The hallway was very hot and... More

This Hotel from outside appearances is underwhelming. It could use a parking lot revamp. The location however is spectacular directly off the interstate... Perfect. Make sure you get that free breakfast seriously. I have not been to any other hotel around the area offering a sit down menu free breakfast with excellent choices and great fresh food and coffee. But... More

Stayed here three nights while attending a wedding. Older hotel conveniently located near I-80. Large room, comfortable bed. Friendly staff. I've never before mentioned anyone's name in a review, but Debbie in the restaurant was so competent that she turned what would have been an average rating into a very good. Haven't seen service so good in a long long... More

A last minute decision put us at this Holiday Inn on a road trip to southern Illinois. It was a perfect location off the highway, but without any highway noise. The real treat was the woman that was in charge of the complimentary breakfast on Thursday May 22. She was so friendly and because of her we honestly left the... More

We stayed for one night on our way to destination. We had high hopes based on the friendliness of the front desk when we first checked in. The room was OK but noisy, very thin walls. At about 6:00 AM the alarm in the next room went on and stayed on for a couple of hours. I realize the alarm... More

After traveling several hundred miles and needing a good nights rest, we stayed here. From the moment we walked in, until we left, we were treated like family! This is one of the BEST hotels we have ever stayed at. Every single person there was so friendly and professional!

I will start will the positive: comfortable bed, friendly staff, great food in the restaurant, gigantic tv in the room, and that is all. Someone needs to come in and really clean these rooms. I left my socks on the whole time. The carpet was yucky. Couldn't find a plug in anywhere. Finally had to pull the mattress out and... More
