“I wouldn't stay here again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2007

The room appeared to be OK until we noticed a pile of dead roaches in the corner of the bathroom. The front desk offered us another room but didn't have one on the ground floor. The manager brought a broom and dust pan and apologized. During the night, a live roach was in the bathroom. They didn't seem surprised when I reported it. Appears that management at this facility has a different idea of cleanliness.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2004

Staying here for the Skydiving Convention Aug 6-15, 2004. Have stayed at Fan Marker Inn (a converted officers quarters from the old Chanute Air Force Base) in Rantoul for the past two years, this Best Western Heritage is considerably better and actually less expensive. The Days Inn is right next door. I have stayed there too. It is $59 per night during the Skydive event compared to $66 at Best Western. Days Inn is lower in quality, not by too much. The Best Western rooms are clean, the breakfast is just cereal and some pastry, but its OK and the mgr often puts out some fresh fruit like bananas. The mgr, a guy from India named Moulin, is a nice guy and will try to make your stay enjoyable. He does care about customer satisfaction while some of the local innkeepers (like Fan Marker Inn) just try to rip off the skydivers for as much as they can since everything is booked up. . I'd say this is the best place I have stayed in Rantoul. Its not tip top quality, but its OK for the price and is conveniently located.
