We visit family in the area at Thanksgiving so just need a basic clean hotel to stay in overnight. For years this was our go-to hotel, but the last few years it's just become a sad place. This last visit was our last. How is it bad? Let me count the ways. 1. Cable channels wouldn't come in. We asked...

This was the nastiest room I have ever had to stay in. All baseboards were black with filth, food between night stand and bed, bugs in floor, cob webbs, etc. We were in town for a convention/show. All hotels were booked, so we didn't think we had any choice. Next time, I will stay in Champaigne and drive 10 miles....

This might be a good hotel in the Middle East but its terrible here. By far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at and we had the two bedroom suite which was supposed to be the best room in the place. If you want a disgusting place to stay, then this place is for you.

Visiting family in Rantoul Illinois for two days. Due to health issues with mother in-law, we decided to stay at one of the local motels. The Magnuson Hotel was our choice. The room smelled stale. Wall outlets so worn we had trouble keeping charging cords plugged in.

I wasn't expecting more than a clean bed and a shower. That's what I got. It was fairly convenient off the highway and it had a parking lot big enough for my car and little trailer. I would use them again if I needed to.

The hotel looks decent from the outside, but the rooms were so disgusting we didn't even stay the whole night. The wallpaper was falling off the walls, there were bugs everywhere you turned, the beds were so freaking terrible, the pillows were like pieces of paper... I seriously have never been so disappointed... The guy at the front desk was...

Check in is easy. Close to gas stations and food. Room for truck and RV parking. Rooms are basic and hotel clean. Wifi is good and continental breakfast is good. Pet friendly. I stay here 2-3 times per year and it's a solid hotel, I feel safe and the accommodations are what I would expect for the price.

I booked this hotel through Priceline and had no problems checking in. My fiancee and myself were given an upstairs room which I should've asked for a downstairs room due to her medical issues but that's on me. Never tried the free breakfast and while it was warm enough for it, the pool wasn't filled. Never gout around to checking...

Room was dated, wallpaper falling off wall, gap around door so you could see daylight. The "cable" was challenging, no guide. Front desk guy was crabby when I called for help with tv. Breakfast was just a few stale pastries and some cereal and the area wasn't even kept clean. Bathroom was disgusting, painted shower tile, moldy grout on floor...
