My family stayed at this hotel for a visit to the college. It is close to Illinois State and Illinois Wesleyan Universities. We booked online easily. On our way we were delayed in traffic and called to say we would not arrive until after 11pm. The person answering the phone was polite, and said they would hold the room and... More

I stayed at this Candlewood for 10 months and can honestly say it was nothing short of pleasurable. The property and rooms are very clean and the kitchen area with stove and full fridge easily made preparing meals hassle free. There is plenty of shopping, restaurants and activities all within minutes the hotel. The Gazebo area with gas grills came... More

My husband is a pipeline rig welder, and that requires working away from home. April 1 I retired from nursing, sold our home and we decided full-time RV life was our dream.
