HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 July 2016

I Stay at his Motel for the price and location. It is within 20 minutes of the Byron, IL, Drag strip. I attend several races here during the year. The Staff is so nice and helpful. For the price it is a great place to stay.

We stayed here because it was so close to the airport. We would not shower there because the bathroom was gross. Shower curtain was stained. Lots of caulking. Felt better not getting ready to fly out than get ready there. They took a copy of drivers license AND our credit card, claiming that was their policy but they would give...

if you're into drugs then it's the place to go it'll be easy to score plenty of hookers available to I got does cruise up and down the street I'm sure you'll find some with little problem, I would highly recommend this stay away from this place if all possible a little more money and stay in a safe place

I'm not sure where you stayed Chris because we do not have drugs or hookers in this building and I can assure you this building is completely secure. You are 100% safe when you stay with us.

This place sucked! The pictures did not meet the actuality of the establishment. The pool was closed off as were the saunas that I'm sure didn't even work and there were no games in the game room. Our room was ok but still kinda sketchy but was overbearingly musty smelling. Needless to say we were not impressed at all and...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, I am wondering however when you actually stayed at the hotel. We did have the pool down for a while however at the time you placed this review we did have the pool up, running, and temperature set at 85 degrees. The saunas do work and located in the rest rooms...

It was a nice property in may ways- the staff was super friendly - and the rooms more then meet expectation for quality and cleanliness. The oddity was they required a 100 dollar cash deposit...that's with taking prepayment on my debit card....I disliked this enough I will never stay there again.

I am very pleased to hear that your stay went well and we beat your expectations, we do require a damage deposit when paying by cash or debt card to ensure that if damage is done to the hotel it is compensated for. We do not like to put this on the debt card due to most banks do not...

The only reason we stayed here is that it was located in the right place for our event. The next closest hotel to the west was 40 miles and 20 miles further beyond our event.. The closest to the east would have included tolls, that is why we stayed there. The hotel is old and dirty. We felt unsafe inside...
