This is a great hotel, motel, whatever you want to call it. Friendly service on 2nd/3rd shift, just get the *** out of Dodge early in the morning. Also, check EVERYTHING in your room when you get there, especially if you smoke.
Found a burnhole in the comforter, and was berated upon telling the 1st shift "clerk" about it. "We don't replace them" is what I was told. Other than that, cool place; the guy who works afternoons will find you a great deal, or recommend somewhere else that will.
Great chow references also from the Microtel guy around suppertime; Garcia's Pizza in Champaign is one of the BEST pies you will ever taste, trust me. He knew where the best food, bars, anything could be found. Saturday night's a perfect time to stay here; however, no local TV channels if that matters.
Otherwise, cheapest place in town, and very safe!
