We went to Rock Island to visit Augustana College. Due to prior committments, we arrived very, very late (2:30am). The lobby was newly redone and pretty nice, but it all looked superficial or artificial. It wasn't very welcoming, but it was clean and new looking. The guy at the front desk was talkative and friendly. We got to our room and to be honest, I was a bit disappointed. The room looked 'tired'. Wall paper needed redone, it was tearing and coming apart at the seams. The bathroom wasn't very well lit and was set up for the handicapped with several big metal handrails and bars. But usually i rate rooms on 1) the bed and 2) the shower. Let me say that this bed in room 532 was the BEST motel bed I've ever slept on. Even though we checked out by 8am and only had about 3+ hours sleep, it was fantastic. Let me just mention the shower. It never got really hot, but it was warm enough. Not much pressure and the individual jets of water seemed to spray in various directions....not all in one direction. Even though the rates were not bad ($45 on Priceline), I find it hard to recommend this motel. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. If you are just needing a cheap bed and don't care about the rest, this may be for you. But, if you are here to visit and want a place to hang out and relax...you may want to go elsewhere.
