“Nice hotel but internal problems”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This a clean hotel but there was some kind of end fighting gong on between the staff that if it is not resolved will start to show in the hotel in the long run. Nothing special to eat around so you might want to think about pizza.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property! We did experience a change in Management a week before your stay and unfortantely still had some kinks to work out while you were here. We now have a great new staff and hope you will try our property again next time you are in town!

NIce clean motel, close to shopping, but the breakfast area is so small and crowded. You have kids who don't know what they want, blocking the whole area. So everybody is just standing there waiting for a chance to have some breakfast. If you normally enjoy the Holiday Inn express breakfast, you won't enjoy this one. That is why I give it a poor rating.

Room Tip: Get a room on side away from the highway. less noise.

The title pretty much says it all. Stayed here one night passing through town and had a pretty decent stay. The hotel probably only had 10 guests the night I stayed and was nice and quiet, in fact I never heard a peep from anyone.

The room and hotel in general was very clean. My room was a large suite that had a sink outside the bathroom, which is something I don't care for, however I have read other people like the ability to use the sink when someone is taking a shower....I am not one of those people though, I prefer the privacy of a sink in the bathroom. Water pressure in the sink was poor as well.

The beds are really firm and I didn't sleep all that well due to that and the loud AC going on and off all night.

Room also had a smaller flat screen tv with an average selection of channels. Wireless Internet worked well and was pretty quick.

Location is just across the way, within walking distance, to a large factory outlet mall and Amishland. Not a lot of eating options close by, however, next door to the hotel is a place called "The Pantry" that serves some pretty tasty sandwiches.

All in all this is a very solid hotel, what you would expect from a typical HIE, I'll call it 3.25 stars as the lousy bed knocked it down a bit for me.

Stayed here for one night after an Illini game due to some really bad weather down south. The staff was friendly and very helpful, rooms were clean and cozy. I never got a chance to check out the pool but it looked nice. The breakfast was AMAZING. Better than any other I have had at any other hotel. Like I mentioned before, the staff was very very friendly and recommended a great place to eat down the road called "Ristorante Tuscona". Would defiantly stay here again.

Great location. It's right off the highway and the Tanger outlet mall is right down the street. Every time I stay here, it is always clean. Front desk service is friendly. The only thing I was dissappointed in was the pool was to cold.

If you have to stay in Tuscola or anyplace between Mattoon & Champaign, this is your best bet. Cleaner and generally nicer than the other place in Douglas County. Indoor pool, close to interstate, close to mall, and an above average hotel breakfast. Cleaner and better card for than other hotels in the area.

My wife and I spent an overnight at the Holiday Inn Express in Tuscola during our recent visit to Illinois Amish country. This is a GREAT hotel, with a very friendly staff. It is SUPER clean, the rooms are very comfortable, and the breakfast (included in the room price) is delicious!

This is a great place to stay if you are part of an event in Champaign as well, our friends stay here every year for our Illini football weekend, and have never had a single problem making the 20 minute drive to Champaign, as the hotel is very close to I-57, but is very quiet! We didnt hear any noise at all, and really had a great stay! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room, the rooms at the end of the halls are best and quietest!
