This is literally the best Best Western I've ever stayed in. They have a bar right at the entrance and there is plenty if seating. The rooms are exceptionally clean and there is a microwave and a fridge in each room. The best part is they accept CLC.

Overall a nice hotel. But I did think the increased rates for the weekend were a bit pricey. The Breakfast was good and fresh with decent options. Pool clean and well maintained. Room was clean and comfortable. Internet seemed a little slow but not terrible.

I always try to stay here because the rooms are clean, it's close to our daughter and the price is usually good. Have always had a good stay here. The breakfast is pretty good too. Food places and shopping are nearby.

Very helpful and friendly staff! Hotel was clean, breakfast was good! One mattress was a little worn but I slept well. Hotel is only 2 miles from SIU campus, so very convenient. It was also next to the mall and across from places to eat

We stayed for a trip to SIU. The room was very clean. The price was great. The night staff at the front desk was also very helpful showing us a map of the area with great directions to the campus.

Room could have been a lot cleaner. Thick dust along the base board and corners, two straight pins and two pills on the floor, a lick layer of dust in the air conditioner that water condensed on and gave the room a slight odor.
