Ive always said you get what you pay for....not with this hotel. The only thing " budget" for this hotel was the amenities as it had few (microwave and fridge). It wasn't any cheaper then other ones nearby and offered nothing for the price. Our room looked like they recently slapped some paint on the walls. The flooring was cheap...

It's Motel 6. My room was clean, the water hot, the road noise minimal (it it right next to the interstate), the fridge and microwave worked and the heat, while a little noisy, worked great on a cold night. The bed was "sleepable" (not plush, not rock hard but I've been in worse for more money) and the receptionist pleasant...

The floor looks like contact paper on top of plywood. No alarm clock. No USB outlets. No coffee pot in the room, no shampoo. At least there is a fridge and micro. The tv is on top of the "closet", tilted. Looks like it could fall off.

Out in the cornfields, this modest Motel 6 has a teeny lake next door, where we saw a couple of dog owners stretching their (and their dogs') legs. Our room had a mini-fridge and microwave, as well as a fine array of TV channels. We appreciated the long desk top and shelves, too. The non-carpeted floor is a good style...

Booked two rooms over phone for 2 nights 5 weeks prior to arrival. Told price was $51 per room. Tried to cancel one room 26 hours prior to arrival- was told they have 48 hours cancellation policy. Upon arrival was told room rate was now $56 per night. Rooms had no tissue- no clocks for alarm. One room had a...

We were on our way back to Tennessee and were to tired to go any farther so we stopped here. I was very impressed with the gentleman at the desk. Because of my husband having walking issues we were given a handicap room and boy was I impressed. I loved the room and loved the fact that there was laminate...

We have stayed at this Motel 6 on I-39 near Minonk, IL before. The motel has been upgraded and was clean. Staff was friendly, reasonably priced. We would stay here again. The truck stop across the road has good food too. :-)

Driving from Chicago to St Louis in white-out blowing snow, we stopped in Minonk, Il. The Motel 6 really did save our lives. The delightful person, Jack, who was working the desk, checked us in and recommended the wonderful Mexican restaurant just across the road. In the -20 or so degree weather, we were so happy to have a comfortable...

We are confirmed Motel 6 customers... traveling with dogs doesn't leave a lot of choice, and we've been pleasantly surprised at the new room types and service.... not so much, however, on a recent trip to visit family during the Holidays. We checked in at the inn at Minonk, IL. Check in was a little uncomfortable due to an inexperienced...

Great location on I39. Very newly renovated. You will have a hard time finding a hotel priced this good with its nicely appointed rooms. Hotel staff/family is very friendly and recognized old customers when they arrived. Very welcoming.
