Visited Starved Rock with family combined with business. Hotel staff were always very friendly. Only minor things I noted in the room like peeling wallpaper along the seams and my maid only cleaned half of our room one night of our stay. She made one bed but not the other, took out the trash can but left the empty cups... More

I have never had an animal to travel with, and I've always had horrible allergies. I spent the greater part of my past life trying to avoid any place where animals have been. I still have the allergies, but I found this place to not only be accommodating to my pet, but also to have lots of rules to protect... More

While driving across Illinois, we stopped in Peru and stayed at the Holiday Inn. It was very nice. The staff were also very friendly. It is always nice to be greeted by someone pleasant after driving all day. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and the beds were outstanding!! Excellent nights sleep. Only issue was breakfast. Typical HI breakfast... More

Sad to say, I was looking forward to loving this place but didn't. First, we were given an outdated room with the smell of dog lingering even though I specifically mentioned my allergy issues. Secondly, the pool was dirty with cloudy water and sand or a gritty substance on the bottom and even a dirty wipe floatin in pool. Not... More

There were three people working the front desk yet we had to wait for the one customer checking in ahead of us. After returning from getting takeout dinner, our room door wouldn't open (the lock system malfunctioned) so were locked out of our room.

The check in experience was a joke. I asked if I could have a military discount and I was refused.
