Thank you for your positive review. We appreciate guests who take extra time to write nice things about our hotel. I know that the room being cold for a reception is hard when you first arrive. It just becomes quite hot when you get 200 or 300 bodies in there. So we try to really cool it down prior to everyone getting there. Once everyone is there unfortunately it is then too late. I hope it did not make the event less enjoyable. We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon!

We stayed here during our trip with the HOT ROD POWER TOUR TRIP The staff was very
pleasant and at the top of their game. We had a problem with our TV and called downstairs
thinking it would be hours before we heard from anyone - Maintenance arrived at our room in less than 10 minutes.....Fixed the TV and offered us free beverages for our trouble

Room Tip: Have a Homemade Cookie when you arrive they are delicious

Thank you for your Positive review after the Hot Rod Power Show Tour. What a FUN event! I'd like to say that we enjoyed having you and your group - about as much as you enjoyed staying with us! It was a delight to see so many REALLY COOL cars - All over town!! Thanks for coming to town and staying with us. If you have a Corvette - You could come back for the Corvette show in 2013?? :) Hope to see you again soon!

Stayed here for a business trip. It was perfectly located for my meeting and near many restaurants (close by driving). The hotel/rooms were very clean and adequately appointed. I did not eat breakfast at the hotel, it was overpriced IMO. We did enjoy a night-cap at the hotel bar and a late-night snack that were reasonable priced. Vey friendly bar staff. Would stay here again if returning to the area.

I stayed here for business this week, and just felt the hotel was an okay value. I'm not sure what it is about the Champaign area, but all of the hotels were fairly expensive (Hampton Inn was higher priced than the Hilton Garden Inn!). The room was very clean, which is always my top concern. I will say that I sleep in more hotels than I would like to because of business travel, and this bed was far from comfortable. The staff was very nice, and the location was pretty convenient to everything in town. I would definitely stay here again when I'm in the area.

Stayed here for a "work class" at U of I. The class was two weeks. Nice place. Friendly staff. Very clean place. The H.G. Inn is a place that always puts the stopper down in the tub. I can see the sink. Never understood why the tub. ? The food/rest. is very good. Breakfast is a tad high on price, but it is good. I would stay here again in a minute. No question about it.

I stayed at this hotel on business. It was very clean with a nice friendly staff. Great location since it isn't in downtown Champaign, so not as much traffic, but still is around restaurants and shopping. You have to pay for breakfast, but it is much nicer than most hotel breakfasts, so if you're getting more than cereal, it's worth it. Wireless Internet worked nice as well. My only complaint is with their beds. They are Sleep Number beds. If you aren't accustomed to customizing your bed, or can't find the adjustment knob (happened to me at 2 different HGIs), then you may end up having an uncomfortable sleep.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and daughter for one night recently. The hotel is located about 2 miles off the interstate so it is in a fairly quite area. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. We stayed in a king room. The room was very large and had a small frig and microwave. The room was very clean and well fitted. The only odd thing was the room we were in only had a shower, no tub. The night we stayed the hotel was very empty so we noticed no noise at all from other rooms.
The pool was great. It is pretty small, but the water was very warm. There is also a very small hot tub, but it was not open when we were there.
We did have breakfast at the hotel. For $9.99 there is a buffet along with made to order pancakes, eggs, omelets, breakfast meats, and hashbrowns. Additionally they offered waffles, cereals, fruit, yogurt, and breakfast breads.
