“Great place to stay on a business trip”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Needed a location in the area that provided both comfort, room for additional guests and someplace that would be impressive. Small towns don't always offer that but this hotel is the exception. Very clean well appointed with rooms for meetings and great guest rooms.

Room Tip: Any room type is great. Just tell the front desk staff what you are needing and they will make sure...

The hotel was a great deal for the price and the location for where we were spending our time. The buffet down the street was great and a very good price. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful!! Although we had a smoking room and would have preferred a non-smoking, the odor was okay. The breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast but they did have waffles!!!

Almost like-new, spacious, king bed room. Desk with lux office chair. A recliner- rocker!! Nice wooded view out balcony window/door. Modern, well-thought-out bathroom. Pleasant ladies for
check-in/out.

Room Tip: No elevator (?) Try to get first floor on backside, although privacy and view is better on 2nd floor

Excellent hotel if you are traveling in this area. Good rate. Try not to pass up going to the Reids Inn Smorgasbord down the road from the hotel. Excellent and fresh food. The hotel staff was very pleasant and knew what they were doing. I spend most of my life in hotels so i run into all ranges of competency. This staff made you feel welcome and handleed any issues with billing or changes to information without hesitation.

Have been staying here on the average of 6 times per year for the past 10 years. Have never been disappointed in the hotel. Above average service and facilities. Breakfast is standard hotel fair but there is a good selection. Pool is immaculate and welcoming, just as the rooms are spotless. Staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. Make sure to take advantage of the coupon for the buffet at Reid's Restaurant, awesome food and service too!

We stayed four nights while my son competed in the SCTP Nationals in nearby Sparta, IL. The stay was great: large clean room, friendly staff working the check-in desk, good location. Our room was on the second floor and overlooked the pool which was cleaned each day around 8:00am. There was a LARGE TV with enough cable channels to keep us busy flipping channels through in the evenings.

There were your usual complimentary continental breakfast items offered in the morning with four choices of coffees. When we returned in the evenings, they had fresh chocolate chip cookies available at the front desk for the taking. The hotel is located next door to a McDonalds and a Wal-Mart in case you left something at home or need something else to eat.

I was visiting town for a wedding. Decided at the last minute to stay at the motel rather than the house other people were staying at. So glad I did! The room was spacious, comfortable, and most important - quiet. Also, I was amazed at the selection of personal care items that were provided for the bathroom. There was even a makeup remover towelette, which I used and was very impressed with.
