I've stayed at a number of motels in Rockford and the Red Roof Inn was better than expected. I splurged for the Superior King and it was really nice. Great bed, desk with lamp, fridge, microwave, etc. The room isn't huge, but it was just right for a couple nights. This location has two buildings and I my room was on the second floor of the building closest to busy E. State St. (Hwy 20), even so despite the traffic the room was quiet and I was impressed. Drawbacks are stairs (no elevator), so if you have a lot of luggage you might have to make a couple trips to get everything in the room. Also, ice is located in the building with the front desk, so if you're not in that building, it's a bit of a trek across the parking lot (harsh if it's cold). There's a Starbucks next door and I-90 is nearby. A bonus is Gerry's Pizza on the west side of the property - they're open late and the pizza is very good.
