Check in was easy, lots of food options in the food court, there is a student rec center in the basement where you can bowl or play arcades, and it is in the middle of campus so it is very conveniently located. Not fancy, but served its purpose.

Thanks for the kind words. We really appreciate your taking the time to comment. It's morale-boosting to be able to pass along to the staff that someone's noticed the good jib they do. We hope to see you again soon! More

This bare-bones hotel is located inside the student union at UIUC. The reception area is on the side right next to a main entrance to the union, and rooms are located in various blocks in the hotel, particularly in one area of the the 3rd and 4th floors. The rooms themselves are clean but tired, with fairly spare furnishings. The... More

We attended an admitted-student day event recently. The event registration started at 8:15 am, so after a satisfactory continental breakfast, we were just a quick elevator ride to the main event. Not having to make the drive from the suburbs in the wee morning hours, priceless! It was so convenient staying on campus, plus the added bonus of having a... More

My daughter and I stayed here on a college visit, and it was the perfect choice. Check in was smooth and professional -- there is no hassle getting here as you pull up right in front of the building, and parking is close by. Our room was neat, clean and had a beautiful view overlooking the quad. If you are... More

I stayed in this hotel for a visit to the University of Illinois campus and it was extremely convenient. I was concerned that parking might be an issue as is typical on campus, but I was able to park right outside the entrance to the union. My room was very clean, but the rooms are in need of renovation--the bathrooms... More

Hi, Thanks for the kind words. If your child chooses Illinois we'll hopefully see you for the next four years! I couldn't agree witrh you more regarding the bathrooms- they top our "to do" list. Enjoy the college selection process! More

This hotel is located right on the campus so if one has to visit the school-UIUC- it would be perfect. I don't see why anyone would stay here other than that reason. The room was clean and quiet. Small room size, though. Within the hotel, there are small shops and eateries that you can grab quick snacks if you do... More

The Illini Union hotel puts you right @ the heart of the campus ... Within walking distance of great restaurants and surrounded by the sights and sounds of university students in action on the Quad. The rooms are a bit tired, it took awhile for hot water to arrive in the shower head, and the continential breakfast was average. However,... More

Stayed here on a work trip, paid by the university. First impression was pretty good - slow check in but friendly, happily gave us a parking pass ahead of when our room was ready, room clean and completely serviceable. They also gave us a choice of rooms when we checked in and we chose a quad view room. HOWEVER... When... More

Very old building, but they have done a nice job keeping rooms updated. Location says it all, but rooms are very nice and reasonably priced (at least for the time of year we went). Another thing to consider is it comes with free parking at the Union - that could be worth it alone. The continental breakfast is low end... More
