The hotel was clean but very very outdated. The staff was friendly for the most part but they made a huge deal over me asking for a few extra towels. The mattress was very uncomfortable but it was quiet. Very nice little town.

The front desk person was helpful in telling us where all the restaurants & shops were located, she seemed very knowledgeable about the area. The room was clean with frig/tiny freezer/ microwave/ coffee pot & hair dryer. The towels were okay and the AC worked well. The water in the tub came out a bit rust colored but cleared up... More

Can't remember the last time I was treated so nicely at a moter. My wife and I were so greatful for all of the help we got from the staff,like telling my wife of all shops to go to for her treasures. The restaurant serves good food for a great price. I only wish that the pool could be open... More

While this is an older motel, it still delivers a great night's stay. They've put some work into updating room furnishings, and the front office and resident folks were very nice. I had a great nights sleep on the body foam-topped mattresses.

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.
