This is right off the I-70 Expressway and very easy to find. I have stayed here in September for the past 4 years and enjoy their hospitality!! It has easy access from I-70 ans there are other sites to see in the immediate area.

Room very clean, price very reasonable. My only complaint is the staff is very unfriendly. In fact the desk clerk on duty the evening we stayed was just an asset. I don't go looking for a new friend but I do expect respectful behavior.

Stopped at this hotel on way to Chicago with family. Have stayed at other ABVs in past and have always had good experience. Hotel is just off interstate on north end. The front desk clerk was friendly and we got a rate of $80 for a double bed. The grounds were very well kept/tidy and could tell management takes pride... More

This place was great. Our last night of our 12 day road trip, we were very worn and just wanted a clean room before heading home the next day. We were very pleased with the decor and cleanliness .

The room we had was clean but dated. Despite the fact that I had a handicapped room, and a parking spot reserved for me at the door, there was no cut in the sidewalk to walk a suitcase into the room. It also featured outside corridors instead of inside which I prefer for safety and privacy. I would say that... More

No disappoints in staying there. My entire family stays there when we are in town. Always friendly and clean. We can bring in food and eat in their cafeteria rather than going to a restaurant for every meal except breakfast. That way, we can truly visit and meals are less expensive.

Not the friendliest lot on the telephone. Dead cockroach in the bathroom as well as cobweb by the shut off for the toilet. No toilet paper spindle in the bathroom - roll sitting on the toilet tank. My first and my last stay at this chain.

Overall excellent rating. Always friendly and helpful staff. Have stayed here 4 years in a row. Only one suggestion and that would be to offer waffles on breakfast buffet every morning instead of every other morning.

Ditto on the positive comments. Husband loved the pillows. I appreciate that the bedside socket is easy to reach for people who use c-pap machines. I wish all hotels would do so. We could walk to a nearby diner, the Chuck Wagon, best pie this side of Effingham. Bare bones breakfast.
