I had to stay one night for an interview early in the morning. The rooms were a little outdated. But what do you expect for what you pay. I think for the price, location, and the nice managers it's worth while looking into. Free parking and a gas station across the street is a bonus.

The manager is hands on on everything and friendly unfortunately rooms has bad smell and shower is quite tricky to have the right temperature. Quite old. Well located, but you can hear what is happening in next room like it is in your own room. Breakfast is not really one. Just coffee fruit and a muffin.

The manager/owner was very accommodating to our need, allowing us a later checkout so we can shower after a marathon in the rain. The facility was clean and staff were welcoming. Location was very convenience for the marathon. I would stay here again

If you have to stay in a hotel near campus or champaign for any reason this is the hotel you should stay. For either a night or more. They also offer the amenity of breakfast of muffins & coffee or juice.

Good service, great price, and excellent location for my interview at the Carle Foundation. The owners were at the front desk and very kind and attentive. The room was clean, and I was able to walk to the hospital the next morning for an interview I had scheduled. Would recommend to anybody on a budget who is in town on... More

My stay at the Americas best inn's was amazing and exceeded my expectations. It was very comfy and the beds were very comfortable. The room was very large and could hold up to 4 or more ;). It was very cold out and the heat worked very well overall give it a 10 out of 10.

I was very impressed with the service at the hotel. The rooms were a comfortable size, and I felt right at home. The water in the showers were consistently to my liking. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely return to this establishment the next time I'm in the area.
