No microwave or refrigerator in room. Expected based on add. Staff said they no longer have. Need to update advertising. Quiet and clean room. Standard breakfast. Staff friendly. Expected more for price and location. Will probably try another hotel next time.

Called to make my reservation early in the day and something was going on with their computer system, was on phone 8-9 minutes for a simple reservation and ended up calling a second time when it did not show up on my upcoming IHG reservations. Should have asked for extra points for my inconvenience. When we got to hotel first... More

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it quite well. The hotel is new and clean and well furnished and organized. The front desk staff is welcoming and really friendly. Dorothy in the breakfast area is sweet as can be- so good at what she does and concerned with high quality and excellent service. The young lady who cleaned our room... More

As a stop on a cross country trip, it was nice to find a Holiday Inn Express after after a string of other hotels. Pool was nice, rooms are a great size and staff was excellent (loved the lady in the breakfast room, so sweet). Breakfast was as expected and better than we've been having. Enjoyed our stay.

We always stay here when taking our child back to U of I. The breakfast lady (I need to get her name) takes her job very seriously. If you are breaking health code (filling waster bottles, etc) she doesn't look the other way, she calls you on it. Biscuits taste homemade and the gravy us to die for. We love... More

We booked online and were very pleased with our hotel stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable, not run down. The complimentary breakfast was stocked and ready to go at 6:30am. Good experience at check-in, as well. We would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed two nights while in the area for a funeral. Check in was quick with so issues. Our room was clean and comfortable and was a nice size with a larger bathroom than some hotels. The hotel is right off of I-74 and was convenient to most places we needed to go in the Champaign/Urbana area.... More

The hotel itself was pretty average. Comfortable bed and everything seemed to be in working order. The pool looked nice but we didn't have a chance to use it. I was pleasantly surprised by the courteousness of the staff. We arrived quite late at night but our reserved room was saved for us. The morning staff gave us 2 bananas... More

It was a quiet place to stay, dinner just down the street along with gas. Staff were great, rooms clean, breakfast was just enough. Used gym and pool. Wool stop again when traveling through. Wool be staying on way home next week.
