I would love to start off by saying that I had a pleasant stay here! I was a little hesitant about this place from some of the reviews I saw on the internet, but i don't know what people were thinking when they wrote such bad reviews! I clearly enjoyed my stay here! The lobby/hotel was very clean and had everything we needed.The front desk staff were very nice, prompt, and helpful, the breakfast was good and free wi-fi was a plus. For the price and location, it is very good. I was very pleased with our stay here. The woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. Even my room was clean and up to date. Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay and definitely recommend it to all the travelers/ visitors!!!! Would I stay here again?!?! YES!!!! :)
I was concerned about booking after reading the reviews so I called and talked to the manager. It is under new management, and they are working on improvements. When we arrived, the carpets in the hotel was new, walls freshly painted. My room was clean. The towels were good and there was plenty of hot water. The hairdryer stopped working but I called and was given a new one to use. The sheets were worn but clean. The room smelled fresh, the bed was comfortable, and it was quiet in the room. At breakfast there was cereal, waffles, bagels and cream cheese, oatmeal, some sweet breads and hard boiled eggs. From what I saw they are working hard to make improvements.
So, I wasnt sure if I wanted to stay here after looking on tripadvsior. But I got a king room 3rd floor for 65 dollars. The room it self was very clean and had things i need, TV, bed, fridge, mircowave. I got a lot more in this room then at RRI, or baymont. I stay in Peoria every monday to thursday. This hotel the carpet and bed was better than any other I have stay in Peoria. The tv is a 32" tv but for some reason it seemed small. The breakfast could be better, but when I stayed at the RRI I got no breakfast. Overall I thought it was awesome.
