After reading the other reviews recently from this hotel, I also wanted to add in my compliments to the staff of this hotel. We were on our way back from South Florida to Illinois and yes, we got stuck in the ice storm the night of Jan 5th around 4:30 pm. We had been stuck in traffic, at a standstill, for 11 hours. At 3:30 am, traffic opened up our hotel in Mattoon had given our room away. After calling around, we finally found availability at your hotel.
On arrival, the front desk clerk was very accommodating to us. I didn't catch her name, but I believe she was the night auditor. Breakfast was just beginning to be served, and she made sure we had plenty of food set out for us and the other guests. She was also very pleasant and as another review said, they could have gouged us for much more money, but didnt. The room was nice, spacious and clean. Beds were comfy as well.
As the town is not that big, there is an outlet mall right within walking distance from the hotel. There is a Denny's that we frequented a few times very close as well.
I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a friendly staff, with rooms at a decent price.
