We stayed here this week. Other than having difficulty finding the place, it was fine. The franchise should consider better signage and lighting outside for guests arriving late. Breakfast was a 5 on a scale of 10. It's OK.

My family and I stayed last weekend for a family party. The rooms were very clean and have been updated recently. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. It was also very easy to find and was in a good area. Will recommend to everyone I know going to the area!

I stayed here the evening of March 1, 2014. The hotel was clean and the staff welcoming. The pool area was nice, though I didn't use it. There were many families there that weekend, but once 10 p.m. rolled around, I didn't hear another soul. Thanks for a great stay!

Convenient location just off the expressway, it was easy to find and there's a Wendy's and Subway right next door. $68 for a spacious room was a good deal. Somewhat dated decor, a bit musty, and there was some peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, but the room was clean. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but we got a good... More

Stayed here after arriving into town shortly before midnight, just wanted to get off the highway after a long day of driving. Last minute choice that thought us to take the time to seek what else is available. Dated, musky rooms. Old furnishings, old tv, loud bathroom fan. Forget about breakfast...best to skip it and go to the local fast... More

Beware of begbugs!! The staff is in denial about the problem. Found 2 begbugs on the bed when I woke up. They keep telling me that the "test kits" are negative. Just lift the mattress! The bugs are as big as a small watermelon seed. I was only there 6 hours, from midnight until 6am and by then, it was... More

Thank you for taking the time to voice your concern. Once you made us aware of the potential of bed bugs in the room, we immediately put the room out of order. We had the room inspected by a licensed pest control company and they found no evidence of bed bugs or an infestation. I would like to apologize that... More

This hotel contained just a whole mess of inconveniences. The biggest one was that the door on the other side of the hotel is an exit only, so you are unable to park over there to have closer access to your room, which really sucked since we had two heavy bags of SCUBA gear we had to bring not only...

... stay for the Two Rivers Century Bike Race in Kankakee. The room was clean, towels plenty and fluffy. The beds were fine and our check-in and out was fast and easy. That was the important thing to us, we didn't book for luxury or extras. If you're looking for a 'spa-type' atmosphere, keep driving -- but that's no fault... More
