Friendly staff , room was very nice , clean , and comfortable. Much better than the motel I stayed at 2 weeks ago which cost more . I dont need a pool or a continental breakfast and will return my next time in Decatur.

Super friendly staff and great location for access to DMH. Room had some blood on the wall as well as in the mattress itself. My gold standard for whether a room is good or not is whether I feel comfortable taking my shoes off in the room. This was definitely a shoe wearing room.

You get what you pay for,but managers were over- accommodating and very nice. Very good channel selection on t.v. if that helps. Room was very clean but could use a little facelift. Would definitely use again if back in Decatur

Nice room everything was clean and tidy had a fridge and microwave the shower was nice with good pressure. It's close to some good places to eat. Pretty quiet, it would be nicer if it had an exercise room. Everyone was nice, accommodating, & went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed.

Pros: During the day the staff is friendly. It has places to eat and shop around it and considering Decatur is small this is a fairly nice area to be in. Its inexpensive. Cons: I am not sure if the night staff is lazy or the communication is poor for them. The lady was nice enough at night but I...

I booked the last room they had as I was visiting Millikin University for the family weekend. This hotel had some very good reviews so I thought I would try it out. The room was dated and in need of renovation. The carpet was threadbare by the threshold. There was a mold problem in the bathroom by the shower and...

I was just at the motel during the Decatur Days Festival. We had a wonderful stay. The staff was extremely friendly and attended to all of our needs. The room was clean and well maintained. The property around was well maintained as well. It was a quiet and peaceful experience and I highly suggest that if you come to Decatur...

Clean, Quiet, Quaint, Great Breakfast and Gail couldn't be a nicer host if she tried. Off street parking was safe and right out back. Did we say clean & quiet! We had a relaxing stay. This was a great value and we'd co back. The Clarks!
