We were in town for a baseball tournament so we expected a lot of noise and lots of kids running around. Kids were running around after midnight but they probably played in the last game on Friday night. We could hear them stomping around a bit but that was the extent of the noise. There aren't many choices for hotels...

When we arrived we were given a rm next to the dinning area. The dining area doubles as a gathering space after hrs. ( we will revisit this in a bit). Entering the room none of the lamps had light bulbs. Actually the floor lamp had a light bulb, but it was busted in the light. Once those were replaced...

Where to begin?? The room smelled like musty beer. It was infested with beetles - everywhere! Bedspreads had blood stains. Beds were uncomfortable. No iron in the room. At least the towels were clean.

Hello Evie- I am so sorry you had a bad experience while at the hotel. Thank you for your review, we always have some issues with the beetles during the summer months, they are attracted to the lights outside and sometimes make it into the hotel. I wish you would have talked to me before you left. I would have...

Have came here for 4 years in a row. This has been our worst experience. The room doors wouldn't lock. Maid service left room unlocked all day why we were at fair. Staff just seemed like it wasn't a big deal. Our group of friends and us had to have keys remade several times throughout our 4 day stay.

Nothing to brag about but better than a Motel 6. Only good thing is that you can walk to the horse show at the Fairgrounds. At least the staff is friendly. Breakfast had very little to offer, and they said there order never came in. Soda machine was out of Coke and got the same answer waiting on the order.

Do not book thru this site , book thru the hotel itself. The reservation site charged me an extra $30 per night per room and didn't offer any type of discounts. The hotel and staff were good but lacking in keeping breakfast items filled.

Stayed 11/6/2015 with friend to attend Bullride event. Room was simple, clean. Had mini fridge and microwave. Only 2 towels but was able to get more. Staff and ALL the guests we saw/met were very friendly. Hotel was full due to Bullride event. Hotel apparently had issue with unapproved guest(s) and law was called. Handled VERY PROFESSIONAL. Kudos to the...

Thank you for the review!! I always enjoy hearing about your stay. We have been working on the breakfast selections. We have tried a few things out, that were not so good, and some have been working well. I like to ask, our guests, what are some things you would like to see on the menu? I look forward to...

People are very friendly in Du Quoin, and the staff at this hotel was no exception. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Definitely not the Ritz, but I would be hard pressed to find a more comfortable bed elsewhere. My husband and I came for the fair and this was right next door, so it...

If you are looking for a basic place to stay this is an excellent choice. The rooms are especially clean and well tended. Everything you need is provided. The desk personnel are well-informed and friendly. The dining area is attractive and can be gathering place should you need one. The included breakfast is basic as well: a small selection of...

I enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the view of the fireworks from my room certainly added to the experience. I can't attest to the breakfast as I'm Vegan and couldn't eat what was offered, but I heard no complaints from my coworkers, and the staff were all friendly when interacted with. There is...
