Budget may be a bit of a misnomer, but it is competetively priced, and a far better deal than some not-so-Super chain hotels. Very friendly staff, very nice property. A most pleasant surprise. Our luck the hotels in Washington were booked up, this place is nicer than Best Western at $10-15 a nite less. And no bedbugs!! (ahem* super-eight in...

From check-in to check-out, our experience was great. I personally love to support the Mom and Pop places, when they are clean and affordable. The hotel is in a great location, and even our room overlooking the interstate had a pretty view of the rolling hills. This is a no-frills hotel, but they have some nice extras; a popcorn machine...

I was traveling alone with my 3 dogs across the country. This hotel was a great find and easy on the budget. They have pet rooms and non pet rooms. They offer a lot of options for breakfast. Safe area to walk my dogs around even late at night and early morning. I had a great stay!

Great staff! Stayed here while waiting for vehicle to be repaired due to accident. Was not excited about the choices in town, but was very surprised by everyone and everything.Definitely the best small hotel I've been in at any price. Highly recommend! Better staff, better room, better price then the Downtown Chicago Marriott

Great hotel. Staff was excellent. Even went out of their way to find us a wine bottle opener. Kept pool open late for everyone who came in late from their day activities. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean. Quiet. Will stay again. Only 20 minutes to Six Flags, 1 hour to Gateway Arch.
