Always clean, great breakfast that's included. We stay here when passing through to visit parents. We are holiday inn rewards members. This hotel is fairly new, and is close to mall, great restaurants.

We always stay here on our Thanksgiving trip to Illinois and today is no exception. Checked in on a free night and were treated as if we were the best customer. Jeremy did a superb job of helping us find another more suitable room with two Ty's after our request. Great property convenient to the Interstate. Don't miss it if... More

Great place to stay, room was very clean & the breakfast was fabulous - especially the cinnamon rolls! Keurig in the room is a great perk so bring your fave k- cups if you want something besides plain coffee which is supplied.

Very clean, in a good area of town. Close to many businesses. Employees very friendly. Breakfast was one of the better ones for complimentary ones. Even though I gave it a 5, I have one suggestion. This is a non-smoking hotel, however one of the designated smoking areas is right by the front door. You have to wade through the... More

The rooms were clean. Breakfast buffet was tasty and plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially figuring out a double booked room (not the hotel's fault.) We had a big room and really enjoyed our stay.
