1 Architectural Wonder of the United States, based on receiving the most votes in an AOL/U. Plans to preserve and renovate the theater followed immediately.
All of the seats are covered with plush red velvet.
The lobby and mezzanine level are as elaborately designed as the auditorium.
We have a small dog and he is free at Motel 6 which is important to us. My room had nice floors, hot heat, nice hot spraying shower. Only one minor problem was I had to hold the handle down for a little bit to flush the toilet.
We like the outside doors to the room as it is easier to get the luggage from the car to the room. No blankets just 2 thin sheets I had asked for down stairs I am a senior with really bad knees they put me up stairs and a very long distance to walk I had made this reservation 2 months ahead of time when I told the lady she just said you don't have to make early reservations I told her yes I do so I can walk less. Will not go there again I go to a lot of motel 6 am at studio 6 now which is very nice very nice Not a bad room for the price especially on this nice side of Rockford.
