Booked for 2 nights on Hotwire for 80$ per night. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. my only complaint was that there was some hair trimmings on the bathroom sink area of our room that hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest. Breakfast was great as well.

Very comfortable hotel and very friendly staff. Room was clean and nice. I like a bit more water pressure but what was in the room was very adequate. I would recommend this hotel if ever in Pekin.

Check-in with Lacy was quick and she was professional and our two queen suite was immaculate and comfortable. Liked the small sink in the bar/frig area. Breakfast was good and plentiful and the eating area had lots of tables. We were there for a softball tournament and were able to get a late check-out (one hour later) which was nice.... More

Beware of the deceptive business practices of this hotel! Stay somewhere else! My husband and my daughter recently stayed here for a softball tournament. They checked in late Friday evening, and they checked out early Sunday. Due to the very busy tournament schedule, they spent very little time at this hotel.

I always get an upgrade when I stay here for business. The staff is very kind and there is plenty of food to choose from at the contental breakfast. Convenient stores like Walmart are very close by. WiFi can be a little shotty but it's dependable for the most part.
