“Very good for a basic, inexpensive hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

I had to stay here for several weeks while waiting to move into a new house. For a stay that long, I wanted a basic hotel that would give me a decent place to sleep without costing a lot. And that's exactly what this place is. The people at the front desk were very helpful the whole time. The bed was nice. The towels were fine. The carpets were clean. The wifi signal is better in some rooms than in others, but they offered to move me to a new room if i wasn't happy with my connection (though it worked okay for me). I think some of the people complaining in other reviews expected too much out of a basic hotel. Also, you can't really complain that the hotel is too far from anything because Champaign is not a big city, so it doesn't take long to get -- well, anywhere. I would happily stay here again if I ever needed to.

Three days after my stay in January 2012, Microtel Champaign charged $5 to my credit card because they could not find their plastic ice bucket. They did not call to ask me if I had taken it and did not notify me they were charging my account, although they had my phone number. They assumed theft, then stole from me. I did not take their plastic ice bucket. I will never, never, never stay at Microtel Inns & Suites again. I am not a thief.

Dear Madam,

Guestrooms are inspected upon departure by the Housekeeping staff. When an item has been misplaced from the room- the guest resumes responsibility. We did not accuse you of theft we merely needed to replace the missing item in the room for further room rentals to other patrons.

Your account was refunded the $5.00. Sorry this was such an inconveinance. Have a great day.

-Management.

I don't know how this hotel has a 3 out of 5 because this was honestly the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. The carpets were badly stained with brown spots throughout our room and hallways, the towels had holes and felt more like sand paper (I would guess they have never been replaced), they didn't provide any amenities (not even shampoo), the bed quilt was older than I am and had multiple holes and looked like it has never been washed, and the heater didn't work so we were freezing all night. The location of the hotel is in the middle of corn fields and is by far the farthest hotel from the city of Champaign. DO NOT stay at this hotel!!

Hello,

I am sorry that you were not satisfied with your hotel stay. If you could respond to my email account I would be happy to look into getting you some sort of compensation.

I would like to inform you that we do offer Guest Amentities such as Sereno Spa Bath Soap, Sereno Spa Hand Soap, Sereno Spa Shampoo in all guest rooms. Available at the Front Desk we also offer Irons, Ironing Boards, Hairdryers, Toothbrush/Toothpaste, Deodorant, Complimentary Newspaper (while supplies last) and other supplies.

The hotel has recently completed having the carpets professionally cleaned in all guestrooms and public areas. We are working with a new vendor who supplies all the linens for the hotel to upgrade the linen options in all guest rooms.

Thank you for your feedback and review. This information was helpful.

I was worried about staying at this hotel because of the previous guys review-but the staff was nice to me. I stayed four nights, got a good rate. I was in town on business and used this hotel because it is a part of the frequent stay program I use. Wasnt in the room much but housekeeping did a good job. I would recommend hotel replace carpeting, improve breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a middle room for better Internet signal on the WIFI access

I Stayed twice at this Microtel in late April and early May. Excellent value for money with everything you expect from the Microtel chain. Clean, free internet and a continental breakfast. Only downside, it is a little remote as though built in anticipation of the city moving in their direction - which it didn't. The only other business on that junction of the freeway is a large filling station. Would I stay there again, absolutely.

The only redeeming quality about this place was the service from the front desk. Both people I encountered were very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed here during University of Illinois' Homecoming Weekend. A time when all area hotels jack up their rates, but our two night stay at this place came out around $200. That is more expensive than their typical weekly rate.

When we first walked in the room we felt we were camping in one of those little pop-up campers. The room was very small and cramped. The bed had thin sheets and blankets that were very scratchy and totally uncomfortable. The pillows were musty. The bath towels were small and very itchy.

I would rather sleep in my car than this place ever again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your hotel review. The information provided was helpful. I am very delighted to hear the Front Desk Staff members were helpful and polite during your stay.

At our Microtel Inn location you can expect typical brand standard items such as Built-in Room furniture, Queen Beds, a bay window seat overlooking a window, full length mirrors, full size bathtub-shower combinations. If you are feeling cramped in one of our single Queen Rooms-you can always try at the Front Desk to switch to a larger Double Queen Room. The price is a little higher but the extra space is worth it!

Special Event Dates for our area include U of I events such as Moms Day Weekend, Dads Day Weekend, Football Games, and Wrestling Tournaments. While the rates for special events are higher than Non Event Dates we still remain competitive to comparable hotel prices in our area. We have remained consistent in the pricing for the last 5 years while others have continued to raise their rates. We value our return guests and always try to accomodate them in any way possible.

Thank You!

t was snowing and icy and we wanted off the road quickly.. called from the car. It looked good from the outside.. soon as we got into the motel, I should have listened to the voice in my head to leave once I seen the plastic table cloth inside the door on a table with booklets on it... the ROOMS>> ARE HORRID.... dirty... beds are horrible!! Do not stay there. If I could leave a negative I would.
