The room was nice. It was up to date. It has a microwave, and fridge. The breakfast options are a box of Special K, or a blueberry muffin. You also can have a waffle made out of three day old waffle mix. Also, there is no juice on the premises. Do not forget to put ketchup on your plate of...

Stayed at the Chateau for a cheerleading competition weekend. The outside if the hotel and lobby are still charming and elegant. The interior, however is dated. In a nutshell we had had a clean and comfortable stay. The doorhandle, hallway carpets and other interior doorways need maintence or replacement. The Chateau is adequate but not as charming as it could...

I am an alum of Illinois State University, and during my time there in the early 2000's, this hotel was a part of the Jumer's chain of Bavarian inspired themed hotels. As a student, this property was a source of much local acclaim and sparked my curiosity. It was instantly recognizable even if you were still some distance away on...

I look forward to every stay at this motel. The prices may vary so be sure and check for the best price while you enjoy your stay. We have eaten at the in-house resturant as well as the many outside choices. Very comfortable stay whether for one or more nights.

This was the first room where temperature adjustments were quickly noticed. Too hot? Turn the thermostat down, give it a few minutes, and you will be happy. I have a bad habit of turning the thermostat all the way up because I am always cold and my rooms are always chilly. Yes, it was chilly when I came it, but...

Stayed overnight here. The hotel looks impressive on the outside however the inside is bland and dated... except for a small library nook near the check-in desk the hotel is devoid of character. Our room was the same... very bland... kind of cave-like. Disappointing considering it wasn't low priced. I had stayed here in the 80's when it was part...
