1. My husband and I were there one night for a wedding. Before we arrived at the hotel, I had the bad luck of a chronic back injury reoccur do bad, I could truly hardly walk. Although we had a king room upstairs we asked for the closest room for walking. Not a problem! That helped a lot. Although the... More

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights while visiting nearby Starved Rock State Park. This place was perfect for us. We had a spacious king room complete with wifi, fridge and microwave, exterior vanity (makes me so happy), and the best shower I'd had in 5 states (not the only shower, just the best lol). Located right off I-80,... More

A very nice place to stay near Starved Rock in the Super 8 that doesn't quite feel like the typical Super 8. The room we had was very comfortable and spacious. Digital temperature control was on the heating/cooling unit in the wall. The bathroom was quite nice. The continental breakfast consisted of the standard items (cereals, toast, yogurt, waffle maker).... More

The rooms are good, nothing fancy, and the hotel is clean and feels safe. The breakfast is mediocre, no eggs, only sausage. The waffles are the highlight and tasty. I lost my day planner and some important documents. After returning to California, I thought I left them in the room because I never took them out of the room. I... More

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay. Based on industry reputation, we expected a 'bare bones' operation from a Super 8, but it exceeded our expectations in a positive manner. The breakfast bar was a plus. Comfortable beds and a pleasant staff means we will come back again. The only negative is when plugging in phones, ipads, etc, they starting... More
