We pulled in as we were traveling south and enjoyed a great night sleep at a very clean HI. It started off with Anna at the front desk greeting us and taking care of our needs. She also gave some great information about what to see and do. The room was very nice and the breakfast was great (except the... More

This was about my 12th stay in this motel, and it was a let down. This is the only Holiday Inn property where I have had repeated problems getting the internet to work properly, log in problems, kicked off the net etc. The oven hasn't been working since last Thursday, so if you want a hot breakfast, you get a...

Hello "GarW" Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! I apologize for the issue with the oven. Unfortunately just like at home... appliances may fail and parts can sometimes be delayed. We did serve a breakfast every day the oven was out that included all cold items (yogurts, cereals, fruit, breads/muffins, etc) and also serves pancakes and... More

This hotel has been a common stop on many family vacations over the years. We've always had a good things to say about it. However, with our last visit, we will be crossing it off our list of good hotels to stay at. It did seem like they're in the process of doing renovations so hopefully things will look up.... More

Another great Holiday Inn Express. Everything was great including parking facilities for our rental truck with tow dolly behind. Excellent breakfast and room was perfect. No problems whatsoever. Love the cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

About midway between Chicago and St. Louis, this hotel is right off of the expressway and offers an indoor pool and hot tub that is open 8am to midnight. In my experience most close at 10 or 11pm, so it's nice to have that extra hour. There are also several fast food options within walking distance from the hotel as... More

Hello "ArmyCaptain"! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay!

Location was handy to interstate, but far enough away to be quiet. Room clean and fresh. Staff was friendly and helpful. Helped us find the restaurant we were looking for. Parking lot was well lit. My kind of place.

During the night someone kept banging on the wall, the receptionist (Anna) had to come fix my TV, my water bottles I placed in the frig stank terribly the next morning enough that I would not drink them. However, this was the first time I received a Welcome bag which was very nice.
