Americas Best Value Inn - Ullin/Mounds
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Ullin
Reviewed July 4, 2009

I arrived in tiny Ullin, Illinois in the wee hours of the morning, exhausted from driving. The rate was high for this region ($78.00), while the room was spacious, the TV remote did not work, the toilet seat was not firmly attached to the base, the sink did not drain (yecch). The breakfast could use a few healthy choices--nobody but a two year old would want white bread, Kool-Aid and sugary cereal as the only options. Remember this is in the middle of a cornfield, and there are no other restaurants for many miles. Corporate guest relations could care less--they just kick it back to the owners, who are apologetic but probably too cheap to fix anything. In short--keep driving.

Reviewed January 27, 2007

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at this hotel. It is undergoing renovation, but is close to being complete.

We were very pleased by the amenities in the room: coffee maker with either decaf or regular plus Lipton tea bags, hair dryer, free wireless Internet access, complimentary shampoo. Other hotels at this price ($53/night AAA rate + ~ 6% tax) typically don't provide all of these in our experience.

The room was quite large and the bathroom was, too. The TV was in a nice cabinet (as opposed to merely sitting atop a chest of drawers). The bathroom had a heat lamp - great for the chilly days we stayed. The towels were clean and fluffy. The exhaust fan in the bathroom worked very well.

We did not partake of the Continental Breakfast, but a glance at the offerings looked inviting and was more than just a doughnut and cup of coffee. The breakfast area was well lit and had a TV tuned to cable news and weather.

The only complaint we had, which we shared with the front desk staff upon checkout, was the poor quality mattresses. We were informed that some mattresses had already been replaced and the floor we were on (2nd) was in line next for new mattresses.

Parking was ample and lit well for our after-dark arrival. TV had typical cable channels. There was a pool also, but it, too, was undergoing renovations.

Overall, we would definitely stay there again.
