“Great Stay”
Reviewed June 29, 2008

This was a spur of the moment choice but a good one. Newly renovated and quiet even though right off I-80. Average cont. breakfast though. Overall well worth the money.

The Good-The lobby was clean and the staff friendly. We had a 3rd floor smoking room. The linens were fresh and clean, the room was big, and nicely decorated. The bathwater got hot very fast and lasted through 3 showers. The king size bed was very soft and comfortable.
The Bad- a bit overpriced, the continental breakfast was bagels, English muffins, and dry cereal, not as good as I expected. The pool is very small. You can hear traffic outside your window loudly. The credit card swiper to order movies did not work, there was no phone book, the parking lot was slippery with ice and I almost fell. 2 of our towels were stained. The heater in the room only blew cold air and there was a light bulb in the bathroom that was burned out.

Overall the room wasn't too bad, but for the $80 we paid for it, I expected better, this room is more like a $50-$60 room, not $80. I probably will not stay there again.

  • Liked — The size of the room, it was a pretty big size.
  • Disliked — The heater and light bulb not working, and the breakfast.

The first piece of advice is to drive past Peru, Illinois altogether. It appears as though this is the best hotel option in town and while it is clean and quiet, it has issues.

"Breakfast" is white bagels, white English muffins, white donuts, a toaster, and a microwave oven, though it is not clear what the latter is for, as there is absolutely nothing to microwave. The cold cereals are in bins that are 90% depleted, not exactly confidence-inspiring. Coffee is vended instant. Thanks a bunch. There is a McDonald's within 10 seconds out the front door to the left.

Why hotels think that piling up laundry carts and deliveries in the corridors is attractive is just baffling, but some do it, and this one does.

There is free wireless, but you need a password (your room number) which they don't tell you at the front desk when you check in. Why hotels think it is fun for travelers to play Treasure Hunt with getting on the Internet after a long day of traveling is a mystery. Just tell us when we check in.

This hotel is off the I-80 and from Davenport, IA to here, there ain't much choice. I suspect as you get closer to Joliet, you'll be better off.

P.S. There's road signage for a Fairfield Inn, but I could not find it after driving around town for a little while.

Stopped on our way to Minnesota for a one night stay. The motel was clean and well kept. Our room was clean (bathroom, bed linens, and carpet), there was plenty of space, and the bed was comfortable. There is a McDonald's next door, and a shopping center across the road from McDonald's. There is an indoor pool, which we didn't use, but it looked like it was well kept.

The only complaints I have about the motel -- We had a coupon from the Illinois travelers guide which would have saved us money, but it was not honored on a weekend. It's only honored during the week. I believe if they put a coupon in a traveler's guide it should be honored at all times. The continental breakfast is not worth getting up for. For 80.00 or more a night, the motel should have a hot breakfast, not just muffins, cereal, etc.

The Front Desk staff is really nice. Very personable and professional.

This hotel is mildly run down and mildly kept. It's clearly not a new hotel, in fact, I believe it was an old Days Inn that Baymont revamped. The bed linens were obviously new which was one bonus. The pool area was a disappointment as it was small, cold and didn't have any stairs which are nice for small children to play on. The free-wireless internet didn't work properly. I called the front desk and they had to "reset it" which worked for a mere 20 minutes before it went down again. The "continental" breakfast consisted of a few dough nuts, a pitcher of milk and two choices of dry cereal. There are many other hotels in this price range that'll be far more satisfying. I do not recommend staying here.
