My bed was comfortable. All of the plumbing worked. I saw no bugs. The furniture was older but just fine. It had a flat screen television although I never turned it on. It is within walking distance of the University of Illinois campus. The carpet had a tacky feeling to it. Some odd looking people staying in another section of...

Thank you for your candor. Your feedback is very valuable to me as an owner. I will always promise my guests to challenge the status quo, that is why I live on the property because I want the best for my guests, as well as my family.

Good location for 1/2 Marathon. Room and common areas are very outdated but the a/c was excellent so I slept very well. Shower only had luke warm water, which was a huge disappointment. Breakfast is very forgettable.

I am aggressively making updates, but some are behind the scenes. The hot water problem is a very complex one, since we have a very involved public building commission, we have to abide by codes and regulations, which take time. One our most recent updates was installing new air conditioning units into rooms. My apologies that we did not exceed...

I had to stay one night for an interview early in the morning. The rooms were a little outdated. But what do you expect for what you pay. I think for the price, location, and the nice managers it's worth while looking into. Free parking and a gas station across the street is a bonus.

The location is very convenient. The front desk staff were very friendly. The lettering on the sign was falling off so I almost thought the hotel was out of business. The hallway smells like stale cigarette smoke. The room was seriously outdated. The plugs looked so old, 2 barely average pillows on a King Size bed, chipped furniture. The mattress...

I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. We are actively putting into actions to update items in the hotel. One of the things that gets lost in honest feedback is that as a small business that is family owned and operated, which is a rarity today, gives back to this community. So, that when you visit with us,...

The manager is hands on on everything and friendly unfortunately rooms has bad smell and shower is quite tricky to have the right temperature. Quite old. Well located, but you can hear what is happening in next room like it is in your own room. Breakfast is not really one. Just coffee fruit and a muffin.

Thank you for your candor. My hotel is quaint, but is a piece of Americana that I am trying to retrofit to compete with the large conglomerates. I am aggressively seeking new menu items, but our local public health department is very involved in my choices. I will continue to be a family owned and operated business that strives to...

The manager/owner was very accommodating to our need, allowing us a later checkout so we can shower after a marathon in the rain. The facility was clean and staff were welcoming. Location was very convenience for the marathon. I would stay here again

Inn is almost across the street from Carle Hospital. You may have an occasional ambulance run by in the middle of the night like we did. The room was warm and the bed was comfortable.

Location is very important, but if the service doesn't exceed expectations, it is not a bargain. I am glad that we exceeded your expectations. Thank you.

My stay at the Americas best inn's was amazing and exceeded my expectations. It was very comfy and the beds were very comfortable. The room was very large and could hold up to 4 or more ;). It was very cold out and the heat worked very well overall give it a 10 out of 10.
