Great hotel, clean and well maintained. The breakfast was great. Nancy checked us in and was friendly and knowledgeable. Nice to be greeted by a smile and someone who enjoys their job. Will definitely be back as long as Nancy is there to greet us.

The HEI is right off the highway next to the outlet shops. I found it clean and quiet, even though it's close to I-57. My room was on the opposite side. My room was clean, well equipped. Good TV with plenty of channels to choose from. WiFi was good, also. The breakfast was above average. Just wish they would move... More

Overall the the room was clean and comfortable, and the desk staff was certainly friendly. However, the hotel was built with the office, lobby, pool and the one elevator all at one end of the building. That means that unless you have a room near the elevator, you have a long walk down the corridor. Another oddity of design, to... More

The staff really make this hotel. They are friendly and warm, very inviting. The hotel itself is average. It comes with all the usual amenities you would expect from an Express. Breakfast was a little blase and cold, and the rooms needed a little extra cleaning. The pool needed some updates as well-it was quite stifling. I'm not really a... More

The rooms were very clean and the staff were always friendly. They had their pancake machine up and running which meant they were allowing free pancakes during the evening when we stayed. The breakfast was also lovely with the staff always making sure the food was stocked up and there was enough of each item out and there was enough... More

I always enjoy the stay here. The staff at the Tuscola IHG Is very friendly. The rooms are fresh and clean. The property is right off the highway and in walking distance to the outlet mall. There is also plenty of places to eat at the exit. Nice breakfast spread.

From check-in until checkout, this was an extremely enjoyable stay! Every request by my wife & I was answered with a smile. Usually you can find something you were unhappy with but not this time. Also, the little Amish lady overseeing the breakfast area should be rewarded with a raise. Great food, always a big smile answered every request. She... More

We stayed here when our son was at EIU. Close enough drive. Nice room with refrigerator and microwave. We used our points and the rate was unbelievable. If you are not a member, sign up. Breakfast was good. The last few times we stayed, there were teams playing tournaments and insufficient seating in the breakfast area. The staff was friendly... More

The best part of the stay was the very personable lady who runs the breakfast area. She enjoyed her job and it showed in her work. She kept everything full and clean. There was a large variety of breakfast items so nobody will go hungry for breakfast. Our room were spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. A paper... More
