-good option, but not that good of a deal if you ask me.
Some students bring/bought:
- Brita Water Filter
- Hot Water Kettle
- Toaster Oven
- Small Electric Hot Plate
- Slow Cooker
- Some Dishes and Forks/Spoons/Knives
-Laundry is available at the motel BUT from the looks of it, I'd rather just drive 2mins down the road and use the laundromat
-International Groceries are available also...if you are Asian or more specific, South Asian, there is a "International Grocers" near the hotel...it has a lot of Indian groceries and also sells calling cards if you opt to call Canada (their calling cards offer more mins)
-Indian places to eat are also in this city with a close one just adjacent to the SIU campus. There are also Sushi places and many other options instead of typical fast food which many get sick of within the first month of being here.
