Positive Reviews

A convenience for travelers

This hotel is located close to two interstates, I-74 and I-55, and is in the midst of numerous food choices and shops. It is close to the local colleges and several large corporations for business needs.

Pleasing to pet owners

This hotel is great for those traveling with four-legged friends. Pets can stay free and there is lots of green space for dog walking. The rooms open right to the parking lot and your pets don't have to be traipsed into lobbies or down long hallways.

A cheap, basic stay

The rooms here are very affordable and have a lot to offer if you just need a place to lay your head. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are functional, and there is free Wi-Fi.

Negative Reviews

An average stay

The stay is nothing to write home about and won't be your vacation choice. The rooms have no real luxury with thin bedding and there are no real amenities throughout the hotel. Breakfast has really limited options.

Something smells

The rooms and lobby have really unpleasant smells, wavering between the smell of stale smoke in the rooms and mildew in the bathrooms. The lobby area doesn't smell fresh and the smell of pet urine underlies it all.

Not very clean or safe

The hotel could definitely do with better cleaning services. Many rooms look as if they haven't been serviced from day to day or upon check-in. There are multiple stains on carpets and bedding. Also, the locks for the outside doors are not adequate considering there are no interior hallways and many guests have remarked about feeling unsafe.
