This place is a nasty stop in Palantine. Dirty room, chips on floor and in made bed. Lazy housekeeping and lax management. I would never stay at this place. Your vehicle is at risk and the list of bugs you could walk out with is long. Inexpensive is one thing, this hole is just Cheap. I stayed only long enough...

Dirty rooms, mold on shower curtain, breakfast area dirty, Pot smoke in the hallways, extra charges on rooms. No visitors after 9pm, plain white bread and cereal for breakfast, and a bag of donuts. We choose not to eat there

For the price this is a very nice hotel. There is no pool as was listed on website. Also if you want more than toast and cereal for breakfast you will need to go else where. All in all rooms very clean and staff was friendly. One employee enjoyed her cell phone a little to loudly during breakfast but that's...

Staff is always very friendly and accommodating. All the recent changes they have made are great. It's nice they didn't raise their prices even after remodeling. It's a lot cleaner now that they changed the staff. The ladies working now are wonderful!!! Will continue to keep coming back.

I frequently stay at this hotel, due to proximity of personal issues, and after the new ownership has taken, over things have slowly gotten better. They have done a few renovations but need to continue doing more. Hopefully they won't get complacent and continue the renovations. The staff is the Brightside to staying here, They all are always real friendly...

Did not feel safe around the hotel. Always people hanging around the entrance in the parking lot. Saw patrol cars cruise the parking lot at night. Rickety elevator. Not a convenient location for highway access. Fairly standard room. Poor breakfast selection (cereal, stale donuts and fake orange juice).

The hotel is nice but you have to pay extra for fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The breakfast is nothing fancy at all cereal and donuts from Walmart. The rooms are nice but you don't shampoo or conditioner. They only provide soap.
