“Don't bother”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights during commencement. What I learned was this hotel is extremely cheaply made. Typical, next to the highway, type of cheap hotel except it wasn't cheap to stay there. I learned to never stay in a hotel like this that touts "Whirlpool tubs in every room". Because of the building being so cheaply made you can hear all your neighbors that are using their tubs. Who ever was in the room above me decided to have a whirlpool at 2AM for 2 HOURS! VERY LOUD when the jets are engaged. Bathrooms moldy and not very clean. You couldn't pay ME to sit in that disgusting tub. Breakfast was yuck! The fact they call these rooms suites is a joke. Nothing but a partial half wall that sectioned off a tiny, useless sitting area.

Not our best experience at this hotel but we must have gotten a bad room after reading some of the other comments on here. We checked in late at night on our way to St Louis. Room was spacious and clean, but bathroom was outdated with cracked tiles and there was hair on the floor behind the door and in the bathtub which to me is unacceptable. The other issue we had was the room was hot so I turned the AC up to high cool at which point every 5-10 minutes the power would cut out, I assume it was some sort of breaker issue. Fast forward about 1am I woke up to the smoke detector beeping in the room and realized the power was out again and it was hot in the room, I got up and turned the AC to low cool and power came back on and stayed on rest of the night. There is a hot breakfast in the morning but it's not very good, the hot breakfast at Holiday Inn, Staybridge, or Drury hotels is much better, fresher food and better options. I would not stay here again personally although I will say my experience with check in and hotel staff was excellent, everyone was very friendly and nice.

After driving 7 hours, we had no problems checking in at 11 p.m. Rooms are very large with separate living area sectioned off from bedroom. Bathroom floor had a lot of cracks and appeared dirty but was clean. Tub had 2 rust spots. Service was great and so was breakfast. Good deal late at night.

This hotel was great! The staff were friendly and helped us find a mechanic to fix our vehicle! The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very clean. Nice to have a fridge and microwave. Breakfast was good and included waffles, eggs, sausage, juices and muffins. We were very satisfied and are going to stay here again during parents weekend at SIU!

After driving for 13 hours and not having a room reserved, we were pleased with our choice of this hotel. The front desk person was helpful and friendly, the room was CLEAN and QUIET - 2 things that are very important to us. The breakfast was good. Would highly recommend!

Our room was large and had a separate section for lounging, reading and working on the computer. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was good and included cereals, fruit, eggs, sausage, juices, and decent coffee. I think they had waffles too. The front desk was very cheerful and helpful. The location is right off the interstate and there are restaurants next door. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We are an older couple and were given a room on the first floor right near the front door. The room...
