Arrived to Benton, IL, not aware in the least bit it was college graduation somewhere, and this hotel was full, they gave us the last three rooms. That also gave them the chance to charge us as much as they wanted for these rooms, which $150 happened to be the magic number per room. Now, I'm not generally a picky...

I had business in Benton early in the morning so I decided to arrive the night before. Due to construction, I had to drive around the block a couple of times to find a way into the establishment. Upon entering, I found it to be very dated, dirty and dingy. The carpet was so dirty I did not want to...

For the price, this place was excellent. Room was spacious and clean. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Past comments about room colors were rude and insult to Helen Keller. Every attempt made to make an older style hotel comfortable and pleasing looking. Breakfast was very very good. Biscuits and gravy, sausages, and eggs kept warm in a bain-marie, good coffee, raisin...

We visited Benton for an unexpected death/memorial service with 2 adults and 2 children. We have stayed here (and reviewed it) previously. Upon arrival the room took less time to cool off than on our prior trips but the bathroom was dirty and the remote didn't work. A housekeeper was summoned to scrub the very dirty bathtub and new batteries...

The hotel is clearly dated, but that's probably why it's so cheap. The rooms were clean which is all I really cared about. We stayed three nights, and the first was after a big storm so their key card maker had been damaged during the storm and the front desk staff had to let us into our room with the...

this place was terrible, did not honor the coupon we had and the room was dirty. the young man behind the counter stated that they can not honor the coupon because of a car show and the place was packed, but during the night the place had only 10 customers in the hotel but I was told that they had...

I stopped at this motel because I had a coupon and I was getting off the interstate for the second time of tornado warnings and the clouds looking like one was inevitable. It is an old building, so it did feel safer than some of the newer ones, but it showed lots of wear and tear. They did not do...

It was ok affordable and clean. We needed a place where we could take pets. It wasn't noisy and it wasn't the fanciest I've ever stayed but no where near the worst. I would stay there again. The employees were very nice.

We are RVers but occasionally ( maybe 10% of the time) opt for a hotel. We were coming home and we're trying to make miles but got tired. We'd stayed at the Benton KOA in the past and had a good experience with the town. We figured we'd try the Econolodge. The place is a dump. 2' ruts in the...
