Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NitinK Poor experience made worse with billing issues
I stayed in hotel for over 1 week. While room was serviced, they did not bother to proper job of cleaning or checking coffee refill etc.
The billing problem made matter worse. I had told them to take debit from travel card and take only authorization. After explaining and confirmation, they did confusion. They told me that funds were released but just refused to send e-mail of what exactly they told me.
The reception staff was generally friendly but overall experience was bad. I am not behind getting billing issue resolved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jennafig86 Great experience
Passed through with our youth group. Staff was very friendly and helpful. One of our youth was not feeling well at check out and staff assisted us with some extra bags for when we were traveling. Breakfast was great! We especially loved the Cinnamon Rolls. Variety of items was great. Kids liked the pool as well. Every thing was neat and clean. Would highly recommend staying at a Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Shuttle (left me stranded)??
Upon making my reservation, was told a shuttle would be provided upon arrival at U of Illinois airport up to 10pm. I arrived at 9:15 pm and was told by front desk at hotel "shuttle driver went home early"? Although the hotel did pay for my taxi fare, not what I expected. Next morning wanted to be shuttled to rent a car location(which I was told was no problem when making reservation), now the front desk said that they couldn't do that!?!?
Enterprise rent a car was very happy to come get me at the Holiday Express location (about 4 miles away), and on my last day shuttle me right to the airport.
Even though your not suppose to do certain little thing's, sometimes they go a long way with customers, and they don't forget! I will be renting cars from Enterprise next time for sure. If Enterprise was in the hotel business, I would be making my next reservation with them as well!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lilly9 Internet down
Upon check in we overheard that the internet was down. When I asked about it I was told it was being worked on and should be available in an hour. When we came back from dinner a different person said it there was no problem with the internet. When we tried it, there was no connection. A call to the front desk to inquire about it was not received well and we were told it was not working and no one was working on it. It was still down the next morning. When I expressed my disappointment at checkout, yet another person told me that they had cables available if I had only asked. All that time I could have connected! Very frustrating as I had work to do. Everything else was fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JimIndiana Hideously slow to non-existent Internet
This hotel is immaculately kept, the personnel are very professional and friendly, breakfast is decent, but if you need to use the internet for work or anything else, go across the parking lot and stay at the Inn. Internet started off being very slow to being non-existent and wouldn't even load pages. I had to use the internet tethering on my cell phone and burn up data usage to finish working. You would think that in the home of the supercomputer college the owners of this hotel would at least follow the lead and provide their guests with decent internet. It wasn't even particularly crowded tonight, the parking lot wasn't really full. Add to that the only decent channel programming on tv tonight was the History Channel, and there was no sound on it.
Please don't send me the typical "sorry for the inconvenience and we will get right on the problem response" if you aren't going to do anything about it. I have to come here regularly for work now and I'm really disappointed, this is really a nice facility with great people.

Great stay at this hotel. Clean and comfortable just the way you would want and expect. Friendly and accommodating staff. Requested a room I had previously and it was taken care of with no hassle. I plan on using this hotel as home base - while my son attends the University of Illinois.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tazi comfortable but a bit overpriced
Staff is friendly and welcoming. Good location. Everything about the accommodations is adequate and acceptable. Some of the services are unreliable and the price is high given the location (Champaign, Ill). The staff make the stay nicer than the place itself. They are all very helpful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bull1 What A Change
I have stayed at this property many times over the years. I would drive out of my way to stay here. Now I will drive out of my way to avoid it. Management / Ownership must have changed hands. They now micro-manage the volume controls on your TV ( volume only goes up half way) and you can't hear the TV if you turn on the Air Conditioner - price has shot way up - internet connection was terrible - Channel surfing is next to impossible since the TV channels take over 12 seconds to change ( yes... I timed it ) - at 7am I still had not recieved my receipt under the door - This property went from hero to zero in my opinion.

We have stayed at this hotel before and this time we noticed that the halls needed vacuuming and in general needed to be picked up.
The employee who oversees the breakfast area is great. She is very friendly and attentive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DiJoJoJo Had a great night.
My family and I all stayed one night April 26, 2014. We had 3 rooms. Every room was very clean. We slept great, the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. One of us forgot a toothbrush, they gave us one. We did not arrive early enough to swim, but they allowed us to take our little girl swimming so she would be happy. The breakfast was very good and they had a huge selection. When we go back to that area, we will be staying there again! Thank you to all of the employees there that made our stay so enjoyable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by travelyosh staff where are you?
I have stayed at numerous properties and have never seen one where the staff were this invisible. Upon checking in , I was greeted with an empty desk and had to wait for someone to appear from the back room. Throughout the stay I saw this to be the case.The area behind the counter was cluttered with boxes of supplies etc. Also breakfast personnel were not visible much of the time. Not a good pr deal for sure. Room was fine.seemed like maybe a large group with many kids was there. Other places have strategically separated these out to isolate noise, etc. Maybe not possible here.
