The staff was nice and even considered giving us a refund when we left 10 minutes after checking in.
Everything smelled like smoke/pee, the furniture in the hotel room was soiled and worn, and everything looked grimey and unwashed. Would not stay there, even for free.
Room was clean & comfortable - and very quiet. Loved the recliner in the room. Bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. The provided breakfast was a nice extra and the room also had fridge and microwave. This is not a luxurious place; my first impression walking into the place was not favorable. But my initial misgivings were quickly overcome. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely return and recommend to others.
Wi-Fi signal was weak, but I was able to connect adequately in 99% of attempts.
The location is near the UIUC campus, but is in a run down area. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. Good TV package.
The shower and bathroom were filthy. hot water lasted only for about 3 minutes. Hallways smelled of smoke and were dirty. Entire place needs a thorough deep cleaning.
