The location was good. It is near the mall, Meijers, a Starbucks with a dirve-thru, Wal-Mart, Target, and numerous restaurants. There never was that much traffic so driving to see relatives about 6 miles away in Urbana was not a big deal.
We paid $169+ tax to get what was billed as a jacuzzi suite. We really only wanted to guarantee we would have a king bed. Strangely, the giant jacuzzi tub was literally in the sleeping area about 4 feet from the bed.
Frankly, all of the prices at this hotel seemed steep for what it was.
The room was OK, but we could never get the temperature right because of the old time a/c-heat unit. There were dark brown stains on box spring on both sides of the bed. On the second day of our stay they did not leave any shampoo, but rather two conditioners. A mistake anyone could make in a hurry, so no biggie there.
The common areas are nice enough, but were constantly overrun with kids. The breakfast area was fine as were the pastries. Free breakast is a nice treat, but the selection was not that great. Pastries, waffles, and other sugary sweet things. The coffee was not hot which was disappointing, but there isa small coffee maker in the room.
I would recommend this hotel for families with kids (if you can get a decent room rate) because of the following: pool; free breakfast; rooms have a small kitchenette area with fridge; and it is close to lots of shopping and food.
