I stayed for two nights while visiting family attending SIU. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast included waffles, cereal and fruit. (I was very leery about booking this hotel after reading some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay there again).

The rate for the Hotel was reasonable. It has an indoor pool and hot tub, however we did not have time to use them. The employees were friendly. The bed was very comfortable and room quite. Our room smelled of smoke. The hall ways and entrances are not secure, but we did not have any problems, and neighborhood seems ok.... More

This motel is old but was clean and the staff was nice. Although I was told the password to the free WiFi and I did not ask. The breakfast was ok for the price of the stay, but some of the breakfast items were empty when we came to have breakfast. at 0800. All in all it is a good... More

I travel I-57 regularly for work. Two weeks ago I had the unforunate experience of staying in one of their jail cells they call a room (see my review). Last night I didn't make that same mistake and chose the Econo-Lodge located on the northbound side of the interstate and I'm glad I did. I was actually recommended this hotel... More

Reserved 2 rooms for SIU visit. Internet was slow but everything else was acceptable. They had a little fridge plugged in so a light didn't work. Over all wasn't bad for budget minded trip. Desk people friendly, got room upgrade being Choice hotel member.

I stayed here for a couple nights while visiting my daughter @ SIU. Got a great rate on Hotels.com. The room was spacious and clean with a fridge, microwave and big TV. Comfortable bed and bedding. Adequate - if not awesome - breakfast with good coffee. Staff were friendly. Hot tub was nice and hot and the pool was heated,... More

This hotel has potential to be the very nice hotel that it probably once was 20+ years ago. But, it has not been very well kept and amenities are sub-par. The pool reeked of chlorine and the hot tub was neither hot nor relaxing. The website for this hotel boasts a "Full breakfast" which consisted of bananas, waffles (you make... More

We stayed there for a night on our way through to visiting family. Our room was clean and my dog must have found the room smell free because he didn't spend an hour sniffing and smelling the floor. What made this place great was that my son left his wallet with almost $200 cash and when I called to check,... More
