Needed a place to stay while visiting U of I and this hotel was convenient and priced right. It was the middle of the week and the place looked deserted (which was OK and quiet). The staff was very friendly and helpful and checkin/checkout was very easy. Booked the hotel on the Ramada website only an hour or so before getting to Urbana and everything worked well with the booking (the desk clerk and I were both pleasantly surprised :-)). Very convenient to the University and downtown areas by car.
The rooms are old and showing their age badly. The shower curtain had significant mold on it, the lamp shades were cracked, and the furniture was chipped and scratched. The TV was a big picture-tube model that never worked. It was too late at night for me to worry about it then. I mentioned it to the front desk in the morning and apparently it was a simple fix by first going to channel 3 (or something like that)...in other words, a pretty old set up.
The non-smoking rooms are on the same floor as smoking rooms and you can smell the smoke if you had a room too close to the smoking section. I would ask for a room far away from the smoking section if available.
Breakfast the next morning was very average without much variety. However, it was adequate and the hotel staff was good about keeping it stocked.
Wasn't there long enough to see other amenities. Wireless internet woked fine.
This place is a few notches down from similar grade hotels from other chains but for the price and location, this hotel is just fine for short stays. The staff is doing a great job, keep it up!
