“Nice stay!”
Reviewed May 28, 2008

Stayed here for my daughter's graduation from NIU...The staff was nice, the rooms were very clean and lots of pillows with different firmness! Great location, not far from NIU (5-10 min) good restaurants close by. Didn't get to sample the breakfast (too busy) I stayed on the top, 3rd, floor by the carpeted stairwell but it was very quiet even though the hotel was booked. Wish there had been an ice machine on the 3rd floor, there's only one on the 1st. The elevator was very slow, but i prefer using stairs anyhow, especially since my room was right next to them. I paid 100.00/night for this busy weekend (used AAA discount)...a little pricey for a Holiday Inn Express but my stay was very pleasant!

Other than location, not much to write home about. Staff wasn't very friendly, a/c didn't work (had to get maintenance to fix it), wireless didn't work for about half a day, breakfast was pretty sorry. It looks new from the outside but don't be fooled... the place really needs some upkeep and TLC.

And for those of you who (like me) can't stand cigarette smoke, be warned: the non-smoking rooms are on the same halls as the smoking rooms (one side is smoking, one is non-smoking). So basically, the smoke smell wafts into your room and you go off to your meeting or conference the next morning smelling like smoke. Gross gross gross.
