“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2008

Last year we stayed at this hotel and it was very enjoyable even though they were doing some remodeling at the time, it did not interfere with our stay.
This year my sister-in-law booked our stay there again but this time I had to write to the manager and let him know how pleased we were. The rooms are spotless and newly updated but the thing that really stood out was the staff. How pleasant and helpful they were. The continental breakfast they serve is the best we have ever had and my sister-inlaw does a lot of traveling , the best part is it's included in the cost of the room. If your looking for a great place to stay, this is it!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2007

This motel had the usual Holiday Inn Express amenities -- fairly upscale feel, well-appointed rooms, very comfortable bedding, good breakfast area. The wireless internet was great - fast and stable. The check-in lady and the lady in charge of the breakfast area were both very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is right near the freeway exit, in a small-town setting. There is fast-food very nearby and a Pizza Hut a short distance away. And a short distance into town and you'll find everything else.

I was a little disappointed in a couple of things. The bathroom was not well cleaned and the shampoo/soap from the previous guest was still there. The heater unit was not well calibrated - I set it all the way down to 60 degrees and the room was still too hot. In order to sleep, I had to turn it off entirely, and by morning the room was very cold.

Overall, this motel was a good value, especially for a passing-through traveler on I-74 -- better price and easier access from the freeway compared to Peoria or Quad Cities.
