There was really nothing special about the rooms or hotel. The rooms were not unpleasant in any way. The staff was exceptional!!! This was a trip with a funeral situation. The staff was caring and their kindness made all the difference!

Staff were very friendly, but otherwise was a bad experience. Bed sheets looked slept in, shower ran out of hot water, and hallway noise was loud in the room. Breakfast was eggs folded over unmelted sliced cheese and cold greasy sausage. Milk was chunky and pancake maker was broken. $100/night when we could've stayed across the street for $74. What...

The person taking our reservation was at a central location. She couldn't find Peru. She kept asking me if I wanted another town. I eventually had to spell it for her. I was half expecting not to find a reservation when we arrived. She asked if I wanted to join the perks plans and I said no. She transferred me... More

This is a great place to stay in the Starved Rock area. The staff is fantastic. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. The room rates are very affordable for what you get. There are also some exceptional restaurants within 10 minutes of the hotel (check out restaurants in Tripadvisor for Lasalle and for Peru). Great place to stay. We... More

The staff here is great. Very helpful and welcoming. The good news is , the hotel is just off Rte 80. The bad news is the hotel is JUST off Rte 80. I'm a light sleeper.

My mom, sister and I stayed here for one night for a shopping weekend. We checked in and were given the handicapped accessible room on the second floor. Even though we did not reserve that room, it was not a problem until we walked in the room. The first issue was the terrible musty smell that blew you down when... More

We found this hotel to be quite pleasant. The rates were reasonable, staff were all friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well-maintained. Free hot breakfast was decent-- some good items, some so-so, but a fair amount of variety.
