Friendly staff. Felt clean. Had to air out the room at least twice per day because of the musty smell. Not much to choose from in Urbana-Champaign, but this is probably one of the better places to stay at in the area.
Continental breakfast was solid - decent waffles, yogurt Lots of local newspapers around Brand-new mini fridge in the room (very nice amenity!) Good location, if you have a car. Sensitive plumbing - toilet needed assistance & we mentioned it to the front desk at 8 am. Returning at 10:30 am after breakfast at Bob Evans, it hadn't been fixed, so we mentioned it again. The front-desk employee asked if we wanted a plunger. We declined and used the grotty public restroom off the lobby. Returning to our hotel at 9 pm, the toilet still hadn't been fixed. We asked the evening-shift employee for the plunger and fixed it ourselves. Bathtub also looked dirty and was never cleaned during our three-day stay. I overhead another guest one morning asking for cleaning supplies so she could clean her tub herself. If I wanted DIY, I would camp.
Room was clean and comfortable breakfast was poor...nothing without sugar. Didn't even have any boiled eggs. Forced to eat Raisin Bran which has loads of sugar.
Everything - room was fine, staff was helpful and nice. Easy check-in. I would have liked a hair dryer in room.
- TV, Internet - coffee - next to a Shell station if you need any quick items - near major highways (10-15 min to Campustown) - friendly staff - i mean, you're getting what you pay for (I'd argue you're actually getting more than you pay for), but it's still a cheap motel, so don't set your hopes too high and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
The price was good. The walls are paper thin so you hear everything in the entire place. Everything in the room is low quality. The staff was nice & friendly, but the place was not great, but then again you get what you pay for, and this place was not expensive at all.
