My children and I stay here once a month as we visit my husband in Pinckneyville and I don't have any complaints. Ms. Diana is awesome and so helpful and nice! The rooms are nice n comfortable as well. Highly recommend. Clean pool and they even have a workout area.

This was a very nice, clean hotel that was affordable. Check in was quick and friendly. They serve an excellent breakfast that never runs out. Diana does an awesome job making certain everyone is enjoying their breakfast. I would stay again.

We got there late but they held our room for us. The breakfast was wonderful. Any time you can eat a holiday inn cinnamon roll, you have had a great breakfast.

Needed a hotel as we had business meetings in the area and not much to choose from to be honest and since we prefer to stick with better know chains this seemed like a good choice.

This hotel was an unexpected find in a small town. Everything was neat and clean, the staff friendly and the room comfortable. Our only surprise was how easily we could hear the people next door. We slept with the bathroom fan running, and that drowned out the noise. Very thin walls, maybe. Breakfast was hot and good, and we found... More
