Located in a pretty rural area, the older style motel was clean. It was well maintained. My only issue was the beds-- it is a flatter mattress with a thick foam on top of it & you pretty much roll to the middle. Once I adjusted to it, I slept fine & my back didn't hurt from it the next... More

Fairly clean room. Current decor. Bed/mattress squawked loudly when you sat on it. But we seemed to sleep okay. For two people, staying two nights, we only had one thin hand towel, 2 aged bath towels/2 washcloths so I requested replenishment, which the clerk took from another room. Maybe they don't have enough to go around. There is a big... More

Whenever my family comes to Olney to visit, we always stay at the Holiday. Julie and Terry make it a great experience...from checking in, to great food. The buffet is awesome and the fried chicken can't be beat! Rooms are always clean and if there is anything you need, the staff will bend over backwards to provide it. Thanks guys!

Wasn't sure what to expect after seeing a few bad reviews, but was pleased with our stay. Definitely not a fancy hotel, but rooms were clean. It was cheap and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Staff was very friendly as well. Had numerous families staying here for a softball tournament and would stay here again.

What a great place for Olney, Illinois. Service, food, clean, and convenience excellent. Highly recommend. We travel extensively, and always feel welcome and comfortable at the Holiday. Always something a little "fun" going on it seems, whether its a little craft show, community event. Olney should be very proud to have a business like this. Lakes nearby, pretty fall colors....

Stayed there one night. King size bed, which was very comfortable. Most motel/hotel beds are just ok. This bed was very good. Pleasant stay. Very nice. A little old looking but very comfortable. And the white squirrels sign was a nice touch.

The room was very well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly. They have a delicious restaurant attached to the motel that I'd highly recommend. It's not Vegas,but a great stop in between any destination you are shooting for!

Took a short road trip from Chicago to look for white squirrels at one of the only habitats for them in the country. The motel was huge with a very unusual layout and an adequate pool and small hot tub. The rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced. The customer service was very good. The restaurant prices were great. A good... More

Thank you for letting us know of your situation...we do use a laundry detergent with Oxyclean...perhaps it was a reaction to that or to fabric softener...we strive for the utmost in clean rooms and linens...the situation has not arisen before but housekeeping and laundry have been notified.
