Quiet Escape: 1 mile west of U of Illinois Football stadium. Art Mart, specialty deli and coffee shop across the street. 10 Gold Bus stop at the corner of Kirby and Prospect.
“1. The bedroom is separated from all the other rooms by the kitchen and the living room, which gave much privacy to my stay 2. I ordered bunch of delivery foods, took many ubers and lyfts, and realized the place is not so easy to spot for drivers. 3. Spacious room with a big bathroom + they had one extra refrigerator for me, which was nice 4. Very nice and responsive host 5. While furnitures are bit old and worn out, I felt very comfortable and safe staying there. Quite neighborhood. Overall, it was much better than what I expected with the price. Will definitely come back!”
Just minutes from campus, downtown, and the airport, The Depot is a historic home attached to 5 wooded acres, a lake, and a "big sky" view across the prairie for watching sunsets and night skies. Originally a train depot constructed in 1857, it has been fully modernized for contemporary living. However, we have taken great effort to preserve its rustic charms that Abraham Lincoln would have known during his circuit riding days before the Civil War. These include graffiti from 1917.
“As soon as we walked into the place it was clear that the owners took great pride in presenting a unique and comfortable experience for their guests. Lots of interesting details and informative notes made navigating a new place easy and delightful. The kitchen was well appointed and had a variety of food items available ( including good coffee), which made it easy to pull together breakfast or a snack. Bed was comfortable and there is plenty of space to spread out. We only stayed one night but exploring the many rooms, books, decorations/ wall art and unique doors and cabinets/nooks, made it an adventure all it’s own. We highly recommend The Depot. Would stay again.”
Cozy and clean apartment on the edge of savoy. 8 minutes from the heart of campus and downtown Champaign. Very quiet and private apartment complex.
“Quiet and clean. Trevor is an awesome host. This should be one of the best place to stay around Champaign.”
