I'd rather sleep outside in the winter than stay in this hotel. First they tripled the room rate because of SIU graduation, so my room was $170... After driving 5 hours from Chicago, I was expecting to relax and have a good night sleep(SO WRONG). When I get to my room, which check in was 3 and I got there...

My daughter and I stayed here the night before my wedding. The room was clean and the lobby clerk was nice. I feel the room rate was a bit more expensive than it should have been as the hotel is in dire need of updating however it did serve its purpose.

First I have to say the people where not unfriendly friendly and the room was clean. But the over all condition of the property was run down and worn out. This place needs to be gutted and rebuilt. We paid $100 for this room that should have cost at most $35 you would be better off sleeping in your car...

When i arrived i looked in the refrigerator and saw a roach. I informed the front desk and they gave me a room on the other side. After seeing this i was freaked out and slept with the lights on. The toilet didn't flush in the morning. I only had 1 tv channel. The lady at the desk was rude!...

The door to bathroom didn't close (and had no knob), no deadbolt on door, towels the size of washcloths, toilet didn't work and bugs. I would rather sleep in my car! We asked the front desk for more towels and they said no! We asked to be moved to another room when the toilet didn't work and they said no!...

We just stayed here for my daughters wedding. I went with cheap and cheap is what we got. Needed a smoking room, received that, without an ashtray. There was blood on the toilet, burn holes in the comforter, and no Wi-Fi available. The TV had no remote and only 1 channel. Never saw any kind of breakfast, just coffee. Several...

We were very disappointed with our room. It was cheap looking inside the room; the fire alarm was failing down from the ceiling, the bathroom door handle was falling apart, there was a ring in the bath tub, and the choices for breakfast was poor. We will never stay here again. We told management to fix it when we checked...

I caution anyone wanting to stay here because of the price. Do not do it! We booked for 2 nights through booking.com. There is nothing good I can say about this place. Everything is broken and run down. Looks more like a crack house than a motel. Our door didn't even latch, probably had something to do with the door...

Where to start. I should have known when I went to check in and on the front entrance door was a loose cabinet-style handle- not professional. My first words to the clerk were, will I be getting a nice room? After check-in, I noticed I was the only car in the parking lot (until about 11:00 pm.). I went out...

Made this stop as an overnight stay on a road trip. Amenities were not as advertised. Signs were up inside our room telling us to make sure doors were locked, cars were locked and that they were not responsible for stolen items. Cable was iffy, no HBO even though it was advertised. Could not log into WiFi even though free...
