The hotel was very average. The rooms weren't anything special and maintenance was definitely lacking. The breakfast bar was okay and I'm pretty sure the orange juice was no good. The price and the front desk staff is what made this hotel nice. I was staying here because my son was being born in the hospital which was actually pretty... More

I had reserved a room for three nights while my wife was having surgery at Carle Hospital. The first room we were offered had not been changed over correctly so we were offered an upgrade to a room with a jacuzzi. While the missus wasn't well enough to enjoy a relaxing soak it was a nice gesture. Later in the... More

Quite pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Sleep Inn In Champaign, Illinois. I was making a bee line for home and was just looking for moderately priced accommodations as a nights sleep was all I was interested in. I was a little leery seeing as the price was so reasonable even though it had good reviews. It was extremely... More

Visited for an overnight stay en route to North Carolina. Our first experience of this chain but, in the main, favourably impressed. It was no problem to grant our party adjoining rooms though the 3rd floor was the only option to achieve this. Access by lift only was initially worrying until we saw the emergency exit signs for the stairs!... More

We are going home from Chicago to Memphis. Chicago hotels were booked everywhere. So we headed back toward Memphis and stopped here to sleep overnight. Everything is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, the breakfast was very nice and the people are very nice. I recommend this hotel for any occasion.

I had never stayed personally at a Sleep Inn, so I didn't know what to expect. The first problem I had was with the doors. They were not automatic doors, so it was a bit of a struggle getting in with my stuff. The room itself looked good, but the bathroom door automatically closed and wouldn't stay open. The bathroom...
