Pros: Everything about the Paxton Inn Motel, the room, the staff, etc. exceeded my expectations. To tell you the truth, I did not want to leave, and return home. I would consider the Paxton Inn Motel as a home away from home. It should be a 5 star, not 2!
Cons: Not a single thing.
Cons: Room was very stuffy & musty , Lack of proper environment. After paying for and checking out room Manager would not reimburse cost. Very poor service on behalf of staff. Would not recommend Motel to anyone.
Pros: Very nice place to stay and reasonable.
Cons: I can't think of anything.
Very kind, friendly owner. He is attentive to requests. He gave us a room on the east side of the building so it would be cooler during the day. We did not need a more expensive chain hotel with additional amenities (like in Danville) and were looking for an inexpensive clean room and bed - achieved.The Country Garden Restaurant next door is excellent, FAST service and low prices on food!
Pros: Attended the National Sweetcorn Festival in Hoopeston, which does not have a hotel. Paxton is 22 miles away, straight west on a nice highway 9. Owner was very nice, friendly and turned on the AC in our room prior to our check-in so it was cooled off!
Cons: Older motel, showing it's age but I knew what I was booking. No coffee maker or hair dryer in room. I thought continental breakfast was included but it was not. Internet was poor.
The only drawback, and this was relatively minor, were the directions getting us from IL 9 to the motel - without passing through the restaurant parking lot in the process. There WERE marking there - but could have been more specific.
Pros: Location relative to places we had to attend over the weekend. Also, the closeness to a good restaurant.
Cons: None for this stay.
We were suppose to arrive on Thursday, 6/19 around 10pm at the hotel, flying from Syracuse to Chicago. Our flight was cancelled. When we called to notify them we would only be staying due to a canceled flight (canceled due to bad weather in Chicago - tornadoes), he became upset and said that he has had the air conditioning on since 2pm for us. When asked if we would be charged for Thursday night, given the flight cancelation being out of our hands, he argued and said that he still had to pay commission to the website we booked the room through. When I asked him how much the commission was, he couldn't tell me. Just not a great overall experience. I will never stay at this hotel again.
Cons: - We booked a king size bed and was given a room with two double beds. Plenty of rooms available. Outdated, dirty, nasty odor. No updates made to hotel and you can tell. Chairs in the room were dirty and stained. No toiletries available to guests.
Cheap, old, but clean motel. It's good enough if you just want to have a place to shower and sleep.
Pros: Room was clean. The restaurant next door had good breakfast. Receptionist/owner was friendly.
Cons: There were used towels left in the bathtub upon arriving. One light was not working.
Pros: The price is affordable. I wasn't going to be spending a lot of time in my room, so I wasn't worried if it had all the amenities. I just needed a place to sleep and this hotel is great for that.
Cons: Place was not very nice. Staff was friendly. I don't think they had the heat on in the room and it was very cold and it took forever to warm up as the heater was not in great shape and the door wouldn't close all the way so a very bad draft was coming
Pros: clean and big beds
Cons: no rollaways or cots or even extra blankets available.
Not bad if you bring a sleeping bag and just want to sleep, but don't bring the family.
Cons: smell, towel rack hanging by the paint, run-down
If you consider staying here, make sure you specify whether you want a smoking or nonsmoking room. It says on the list of amenities that the motel features nonsmoking rooms, but doesn't mention that it also still has smoking rooms. We learned the hard way when we arrived and all of our rooms (3 king-size) smelled of smoke. The shower's water pressure in two rooms was nonexistent. Some other basics like multiple towel racks, a hair dryer, etc, were also nonexistent. The management was very nice. Perhaps it's been too long since I stayed at a 2-star/motel, but my expectations were for a clean, odorless room, with a place to hang my towels and take a nice shower before I checked out. Therefore, I was glad to have a place to lay my head other than my car or a campsite, but it wasn't a place I'd recommend to stay if you have other options.
Pros: Large room, firm bed, friendly staff, fridge/microwave available, wifi
Cons: our room reeked of smoke (we didn't know until we arrived that the king-size room was a smoking room), and the water pressure in the shower was a joke.
Pros: I was AMAZED. I haven't been to the hotel in a few years. I only use it to sleep and bath essentially because the rest of the time I'm at the horse show in the next town over. I was sooo happy to see it remodeled and up to date.
Would never stay here again!
Cons: Walked into the room and it smelled horrible. Someone had unplugged the refrigerator. The smell in the refrigerator dripped into the carpet. There answer was to give me a spray bottle with air freshener.
Pros: It was convenient
Cons: The smell.
Pros: Room and TV channel selection.
Cons: Breakfast was greatly inadequate.
You get what you pay for
Cons: Not being able to meet Norman
Nice location right off interstate.
Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: They wouldn't give me an actual receipt when I checked out.
Don't stay here drive to champaign
Cons: Carpeted taped to floor, bugs in room, Outdated everything, bed pillows sheets all old and I. Poor quality
average hotel but very clean...
Pros: nothing much....just a average hotel but very clean
Pros: The room was spacious
Cons: The air conditioning system needed a good cleaning. The air in the room was smoky & stale. Everything including the towels & bedding reeked of cigarettes. We are not smokers so it was disgusting.
Try somewhere else if possible./
Pros: On the very first nighy we checked in there was a very sweet High school girl working.
Cons: Rooms smeeled bad Need to refresh and redo furniture.
Cons: The whole hotel smelled like old smoke - got stuck in a smoking room - even with open windows and a fan on still smelled.
