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.

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.

I went back for U of I homecoming, I was there 2 nights. Room was clean, bed was decent, had wifi, free breakfast, plenty of parking. Not too far from campus. So I would recommend for anyone going to C-U for a day or two.
