My fiancé and I attended a wedding reception here and booked a room to stay in after the reception was over. The hotel seems a bit old and could use a facelift. At checkin I was told my room wasn't ready so I needed to wait. (it was right at check in time) After awhile I saw other guests checking... More

I've stayed in numerous Holiday Inn's. This location is pricier than average. The staff was excellent. Room contained nice large desk and large t.v. Room in desperate need of deep cleaning, nasty stains on furniture.

Stayed in a king room with the family - - 2 adults + 3 kids during trip to visit U of I. King bed was comfy and teens had no complaints on the sleeper sofa. Room was clean and large enough for us to get around. Plenty of breakfast options. Would stay again.

My wife and I stayed here on our way to Indy for a weekend away. Found the room clean and comfortable, what you expect to see in a Holiday Inn Express. The air conditioner was a bit noisy, not enough to interrupt our sleep. The breakfast was standard, food was hot and fresh. Could have been stocked better, but we... More

A stop on the interstate. Did my "room inspection" which included a look at the HVAC filters. Think respiratory issues. The filters had not been changed for weeks or months. I hate to breathe the same air as the previous customers! The front desk gave me clean filters, however, I wonder if all the rooms were like mine? Management should... More

The next morning, the housekeeper said there were only three room empty and lots of kids the night before. The empty rooms must have been on either side of our room and across the hall because we heard NOTHING during the night. Our king suite was on the top floor and on the back side of the hotel and it... More

We were down for graduation and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had a couple of issues with our reservations that handled to our complete satisfaction.

Easy on and off location off I-74 and close to University of Illinois campus. Hot breakfast included. Room felt a little dated, but it was clean and had all the usual amenities, including pool and hot tub. There are several other options at this interchange, but this property will serve you well.
