8/10 Very good

Excellent Value, 10 minute drive from SIU
Sunday night stay for SIU campus visit and hotel was very quiet; adjacent bar/restaurant was closed during our stay but looks interesting. Lobby, hallways and room are recently refreshed with new carpeting, room flooring, paint, and bathroom surfaces. Service was friendly and everything was very clean. Beds were wonderfully comfortable with decent sheets and a very soft blanket. Breakfast had a decent amount of choice given the few staying that night; looks like more options are offered on weekends. This is a renovated older property (with some renovations of outbuildings still in process) but we felt safe and secure. Overall an excellent value.

6/10 Good

Fine for a night
You get what you pay for. This hotel was the cheapest in the area and looks run-down on the inside and out. The rooms don’t have much to offer and the free real fast was juice boxes and granola bars. All in all if you just need to crash for a night it was perfectly adequate.

Nice Hotel
This hotel has had a problem with collage kids living there and trashing the place for a long time WELL it's under new management and the kids don't live there anymore!! The management is trying their best at renovating the hotel and it's a lot nicer and a really nice and friendly place to stay and will return there in the future when we come down to visit!!

4/10 Fair

A bit unfriendly
TV didn’t work, AC was set on 60 but never got below about 75. Went to desk for another towel (not enough in the room). Very nice gentleman told us to take a whole set that was on the counter. The desk clerk seemed a bit upset by that. We went looking for a vending machine and could see one near the front desk. When we tried to open that door the same desk clerk told us we were trying to get into the office and again seemed quite annoyed. We asked if there was a vending machine available to us and she just shook her head and said nope without even looking up at us.

2/10 Poor

This place is truly disgusting. Infested with ants, and they didn't even change the toilet paper, during an on going pandemic. The help (or the owner) was partying with guests or friends that appear to live here. It overlooks half of a crumbling hotel as well. Someone call the health inspector please.
