This motel is under new ownership as of February of 2016. They are doing construction at a pace that does not inconvenience the guests. They dropped the price to compensate. The room is still on our with motel 6, but is cheaper than the equivalent motels in the area. For an inexpensive night, I recommend it just fine. Give the new owners a few months and they'll have a very nice hotel.
Very friendly new owners since February 2016. A lot cleaner, ice machine, vending machines are actually full and work. Free WiFi and cable including HBO channels. The only things I would complain about is the free breakfast which consists of individual wrapped chocolate donuts and tiny muffins with coffee, a/c works great but very loud, and our shower was very low water pressure and temperature was either very hot, Luke warm, or ice cold. No in between. Very touchy.
I stayed at this hotel on a trip to the Illinois Beach State Park. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. I found it to be a good value.
