The motel was clean, and the room was clean, nicely appointed and quiet. The front desk staff was very accommodating. The location is away from a major travel center so traffic around the facility was limited mostly to guests. We ate at a nearby restaurant which was good too. Not a chain restaurant.

I hate when trip advisor has mixed reviews for a hotel. However, since there are not many hotels in this area, we decided to check it out and I did ask to see a room first. The room was clean, not new but clean. The beds were comfortable. The only negative was bathtub was a bit stained and had a...

First off we had to have a hotel/motel that allowed dogs. So, our choices were somewhat limited in the Starved Rock area. We went with a King Bed type room. The room was fairly clean. All of the items they advertise were in the room. The bathroom could have been cleaned a bit more. Otherwise the room was good. The...

This Best Western was there when we needed a room quickly. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Wifi was great. Beds were really comfortable. Love the marshmallow pillows. Almost wanted to bring them home, but refrained.

The motel and room were very clean. The WiFi service was very good. The breakfast was great, well presented, and the breakfast items were fresh. A great value for the money. I recommended this motel to a friend.

We checked into two rooms at 4:45pm. We didn't plan on staying at the Ritz, just needed a couple clean, quiet rooms for the night (driving from Mpls to Cincy). When we walked into one of the rooms, I immediately smelled pee, which was gross. Sat down on the bed and within five minutes, four ants had crawled on me....

The hotel charged me full price and I had a bathtub that was so flirty I was afraid I would get athletes foot. I showed the front desk pictures and they did nothing. The tub was filty beyond imagination ad did not happen over night.

This hotel was right along the freeway, so convenient for us. The room was clean and large. We enjoyed the hot breakfast with my husband's favorite biscuits and gravy, and the internet worked well. We'd stay here again.

Business trip to the area, only one night but we found the place tired, run down, and dirty. Coffee had been splashed on the wall in my room and dried there, who know how old it was? Walls are thin The gym was adequate but dirty towels present, no water available, and the wipes container was empty. The people were...

A quality place to stay; Great clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, caring staff, fair price. What more can I say except that 200 characters is wanted on this review. We stay here every time we are passing through.
