The main downside to this place I the availability of restaurants. There are some here, just not a great deal of choices. We drove 8 miles to a decent Mexican Joint. We used their washing machine and drier, which was reasonable at $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry.

I was a guest here on last week. Given a room without refrigerator or microwave. Discovered in the AM that they only come in certain rooms. I was not thrilled and when I mentioned it to the desk clerk she said, "if you want one the next time please ask." I thought all Holiday Inn Express hotels had a refrigerator... More

I was travelling alone with my 2 children and was tired. We checked in and the bathroom door did not close, the smoke alarm was falling out of the ceiling, the curtains were dirty and ripped. I asked to be moved. We were then moved to a room without a refrigerator with mold in the bathroom. The rooms are standard,... More

I stayed at Tuscola many times as a visiting manager at one of the Tanger Outlet stores. The service was always above and beyond. I only had two issues during about 15 stays, and each issue was dealt with promptly and completely. The rooms are nicely appointed and clean and I enjoyed the pool and fitness room. Great to place...

Friends and I took an overnight trip to Tuscola, IL for some outlet mall shopping. The motel was clean, and the desk staff were friendly and considerate. The breakfast buffet was excellent for a motel of that price range. I would recommend it for an overnight stay if traveling on I 57 .

I have never stayed in a HI/Express but friends have and recommend the brand. So we gave it a try. This facility appears to be fairly new. Staff was helpful. The rooms were nice. We... More

The rooms are nice, ours had a fridge and a microwave. The pool is great, it's nice and warm, probably the warmest pool we've been at in five+ years. That was... More
