“Good hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2007

Had a business trip in the area, and chose this hotel at the advice of the company we were visiting.

Although we arrived late at night, the staff were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The room was very clean and appeared recently remodelled.

Didn't get to try the complimentary breakfast as there was an excellent Cracker Barrel right next door.

Only one point for business travellers - for net access, you would need to rent an adaptor for a refundable deposit.

Overall, an excellent choice if you are staying in this area.

This hotel appears to have been recently renovated. The carpeting in our section of the hotel was new and they were in process of laying new carpeting in another section. The room was very attractive and nicely furnished. Beds very comfortable. Rooms were a nice size. A side chair was available and also very comfortable. Complementary breakfast was available and offered more choices than many complementary breakfasts at most hotels. I was surprised at the variety. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would definately recommend this hotel to any one staying in the area.

The location was next to the mall and close to I-57. There are a large variety of restrurants available along with a variety of shopping.

A friend of mine booked me a room here for an overnight stop. This Holiday Inn Express is in an excellent location. Driving there from the interstate is easy. It's located in the midst of a shopping complex. The hotel itself has three floors, and according to a desk clerk, was expanded from its original size by the building of another wing. My room was in this expansion wing. It also has business meeting rooms available.

Our room was a typical Holiday Inn Express room, but made over with new sheets, pillows, and bedcoverings. The bathroom towels are new, as are the shower curtains. Nothing fancy about the TV; it had the usual local channels plus HBO. Both the room and the bathroom were squeaky-clean.

The staff were friendly and upbeat. Guests may use a computer located in the lobby that has internet access, and also has a printer attached. There's also a pool, and breakfast comes with the room. The local specialty for breakfast at this location on this stay was sausage gravy and biscuits; but other items, such as fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, and cold cereals were also available.

As I was checking out, the desk clerk invited me to come back when we're done with our new renovation. Apparently, the owners are redoing the third floor of the hotel as of this date, and working their way down to the ground floor. Our room really didn't need renovation, but it's nice to see a hotel chain that's serious about attracting business, and ensuring a traveller returns in the future.

Very nice hotel. Very clean. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bedding was above average.

Bathroom was very good--large and extremely clean.

Only problem we had was at check-in. We arrived at 3 PM and our rooms were not ready even though check-in was at 3 PM. Was in a large group and had several rooms booked.

But besides that, we had no problems. Would stay here again. Good location to shopping and eating.

Thank you for staying with us and letting us know how we are doing. Our housekeeping staff does a phenomenal job but sometimes with late check outs it can be challenging to have the rooms prepared to our specifications. Please come back us and enjoy our hospitality and ask for me and I will ensure your room is ready for you.

Thank You,

Edward

This is one of several hotels located adjacent to Northfield Mall which makes it a great location if you are staying for business and want a place to kill some time in the evening. There are several chain restaurants close by and one very good Italian place named Arminesis Eighteen 75.

Rooms are clean and quiet and staff is polite but nothing out of the ordinary really. If you happen to be in town for business this is a fine hotel and appears to also be pet friendly.

Everything was just mediocre. Check in was slow. Front desk staff was somewhat unprofessional and bored looking. Rooms were Ok but could be described as a "suite." No closet, so your clothes hang out in the open in the bathroom basically. Beds are OK with mediocre pillows. The wireless internet was free, but slow and cut out intermittantly (the wireless router signal disappeared). Breakfast was fine. The Hampton Inn next door seemed nicer, after a quick tour including a room, and I'm going to be staying there instead, as a frequent consulting visitor to the Kankakee area.
