Horrible horrible horrible. Rooms haven't seen a vacuum in a while. So what the proprietor was nice. This place is disgusting! Woke up in the middle of the night and saw a roach staring at me. Went to flush the toilet and there is another one staring at me. No exaggeration.

I enjoyed my seven-night stay very much. The room was clean, the service was very friendly, and the rates were quite reasonable. The room was quiet and refreshing after my 2 days long continental flight. The manager, Harry, went out of his way to make my trip comfortable. When the taxicab scheduled to bring me to Canton from Peoria failed, he came to pick me up in Peoria. I would gladly stay at the Canton Inn in the future, whenever I need a hotel in Canton. I highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I were going to the Canton, Illinois area every week from February through June. We were there to do with work. The Canton Inn is very clean and gives you a "homey" feeling. Harry, the manager, and his wife are some of the nicest people we have ever met. There is a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and blow dryer in the rooms. The rates are reasonable and well worth your money. If you need anythingat all, Harry will be right there to help. It is quiet and has very comfortable beds. In fact, my husband and I are planning a "getaway" trip back to Canton Inn in the next few weeks. So glad we found the Canton Inn.

Your welcomed by "Harry" with enthusiasm and a smile. I stay in motels for weeks at a time all over the country. I look for comfort, safe location and great rates. A fridge and micro is a bonus when away for many weeks. The Canton Inn was my home away from home for a couple weeks, if I'm ever back to work in the area I will definitely return!

Wasn't familiar with the area. Was from out of town but was glad the Canton Inn had rooms available. All the other hotels & inns in the surrounding area were booked. Harry took really good care of us and made sure we were very comfortable with out short stay.

There is nothing fancy about the Canton Inn. If you are looking for upscale furnishings you will need to look elsewhere. But, if you are looking for a clean room at a reasonable price with all the basic amenities, you will find it all at the Canton Inn. Of the tree hotel/motels in Canton this was the least expensive, but still offered a mini fridge, microwave, 42'' flat panel TV, ironing board, free local calls and a comfortable bed. While the dresser and nightstand showed their age and had some scratches, the room was spotlessly clean. About the only points I can take off are for no shampoo in the bathroom and the baseboard heating which does not heat the room evenly and makes all kinds of cracking noises when it cycles between on and off.

Probably the best thing about the Canton Inn is the proprietor, Harry. He makes you feel truly welcome and leaves no doubt about how grateful he is for your patronage. He called our room a half hour after we checked in to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.

This is the second time we've stayed at the Canton Inn. The first time was two years ago when one of the other hotels managed do lose our reservation. The quality was much higher this time. It appears that the management is investing a good portion of their return in renovating the rooms.

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for taking the time to review us.We are glad we met your expectations during your trip. Here at the Canton Inn, we strive to provide the most value for your stay & best possible experience
Your points & suggestions are well noted & Sorry on behalf of my house cleaning staff for forgetting leaving shampoo in your room & also sorry for couple other things. We called the electrician & ask him to fix it. So the next guest don't get that clicking sound.
Since your last visit, we have upgraded our furniture in some rooms & planning to do the same for all.
In your second trip to our hotel, you give us 4 star rating. In your next trip, I personally will make sure that we get 5 Star rating from you.

He really appreciate lot & says Thanks a million to both of you...
