We were in town for a wedding, met by busloads of soccer players and parents who came for a weekend tournament. Still, the hallways at night were relatively quiet (I guess the kids were tired out). Our third-floor king suite was very clean, comfortable, and cool. Check-in was easy, and check-out at nearly noon was no problem. We simply hung... More

We stayed here while attending the Illinois Basketball Banquet. The reviews had this hotel better than the Holiday Inn where the banquet was being held. So I chose to stay here. When getting ready for bed I saw an ant crawling on my pillow. I looked further and found the source was the floor and wall behind the night stand.... More

My husband & I used to live in Urbana and were in town visiting friends for a night The hotel's website says the hotel is "Downtown/City Center.” There aren't really any hotels that are downtown or in the city center, but the HIE is a bit further from things. The areas between the hotel and the U of I, downtown... More

The property overall looked clean. It is a newer or remodeled property. We paid $128 per night for a 2 night stay on the weekend. For the price we paid we expected a little more than your standard Holiday Inn Express. The walls are pretty thin, so we were woken up quite often. The heating/ac unit was pretty loud and... More

My car broke down while on a one day trip. I was forced to spend the night, and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express where I always stay. The hotel was clean and rooms were ready. They always treat me well. Join the rewards program, it has been a beneficial one for me. I do not travel too often,... More

We went to Champaign for the Illinois Junior Academy Science Fair as our son was participating. The hotel was close to everything, clean and suprisingly great price. We would definitely stay there again. The mall and the University are both within a few miles.

We have stayed here 4 times in the past to visit our son at U of I. It is a clean and conveniently located hotel and the staff are very nice. However, I am not sure we will stay again after our latest experience. We checked in late, went up to our room and turned on the TV. Didn't notice... More

It's a great property! I love the comfortable beds, and the service is great. Quick and painless check-in. I called down and the gentleman at the desk almost instantly at the door with the items I needed. He even helped me find a place to eat dinner with my wife. Great guy, this hotel is lucky to have him on... More

This hotel is nicely maintained. The pool/hot tub area was very clean, and the beds in the rooms were quite comfortable. Rooms have high ceilings, making them feel spacious. Great lighting in the bathroom. The breakfast bar was ok, although there wasn't much left at 9 am (breakfast was from 6:30 to 9:30 am); no yogurt, no biscuits (just gravy),... More
