We like to use this hotel as an overnight stopover when travelling in this area. People are nice and the hotel is of very good quality. Can't go wrong for a mid priced stay. It has many restaurants nearby.

It had been pouring rain for quite some time and we decided to stop early for the night. We decided to try a different Inn that we had never stayed at before and were we glad we did. We had a wonderful room and the linens were fresh and white. The bed was so comfortable. It was close to many restaurants for dinner. The breakfast the first morning was wonderful and served on real plates. They provided real glasses, cups and silverware for us at breakfast also. We would recommend this hotel highly and we shall certainly use this chain again in our travels.

The room was clean, but nothing fancy. I found the staff to be friendly and courteous. The bathroom was okay, but lacked maintenance. The shower rod was not fastened firmly to the wall and moved when I opened and closed the curtain. Everything else was fine.

Staff was very friendly. Rooms were clean, property is newer. They were able to accomodate our large group on short notice. Rooms were standard for this chain. Would repeat when in the area. Pool was warm which is always a plus.

We came to Champaign to visit family and friends. We chose the hotel partially because of other Tripadvisor reviews. Penny was very pleasant to help us with the reservations, and the front desk staff was excellent. Check in and out was a breeze.

One reviewer mentioned an unusual odor. We noticed this also, but then I realized that it was because they had turned the air conditioner off between guests. Once we turned the AC on the smell went away within minutes.

The room was spotless, and the bed comfortable. The hot tub had plenty of hot water and felt wonderful after 11 hours of driving. The bathroom was large with plenty of counter space, and plenty of hot water at good pressure. The HD flat screen television had a good selection of channels and the closed captioning easy to find. Having the refrigerator, microwave, and extra sink was a very nice touch.

The breakfast area is small and stayed full both days we were there. There were lots of families with their children. I didn't particularly like the scrambled eggs but the sausage was out of this world. There is enough of a selection that anyone should be able to find something they like. The staff worked very hard to keep it stocked.

The business center had two work stations and a high speed laser jet printer. You need your room key for entrance.

There is only one ice machine (on the first floor near the elevator). The savings on the room more than make up for not having one on each floor. They do have a washer and dryer.

I'm glad we stayed here.
