Great location, but property needs a refresh

Thoroughly pleasant staff served as an antidote to a property that evinces a distinct 1980's ambiance. The former Shilo Inn might have been a trend-setter then, with it's large, spacious rooms and idyllic riverfront views, the new owners have a steep and expensive hill to climb, replacing the furnishings (esp. the saggy mattresses and feeble TV reception...on a tube TV!). If they succeed, they will transform this into the showplace it was was.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

"Chicago Connections" is a modest restaurant about a mile west of the property that serves an exact copy of the great deep-dish pizza I knew and loved while going to college in Illinois. If you eve wanted to know what good, real deep-dish pizza tastes like, this is it, and they deserve your business!

CYA trip

I have stayed there some in past, due mostly to price. Couldn't get computer to log into Shilo's WiFi, TV was old and picture was jumpy and not very clear. Cleanliness was OK, bed was OK.

Close to all and the price was right

amenities were nice nothing to get excited about, pool/ wifi/ "workout room"/ breakfast. I think the distance to things is a bit skewed. zoo, aquarium, arena and defiantly NOT a brisk 1-2 mile walk. cleanliness....well the beds were made and the floor was vacuumed other than that we had someones shirt and hair band in our bathroom, the screen door was ripped. Beds were uncomfortably hard (great for our daughter who thought they were more bouncy than her trampoline), temp was either arctic or blazing , couldn't open the door because with a ripped screen door bugs would come in. Staff was very nice and complemented my daughter multiple times. overall value nothing spectacular and niether was the price, if youre not going to be in the hotel that much than id say its a deal if you are id say spend a few more bucks and get something nicer.

Place to Sleep

It's not a terrible place, just a little old school. It's a good location for the price.

Not great, not bad

The room was clean, but the vinyl was coming up in the bathroom and the beds were older. They were fairly comfy tho. The pool was either very dirty or very stained. I hardly saw the staff. Breakfast was fine, what you would expect. Eggs actually good.

Great room for the price

The staff is very friendly. The hotel is older but nice. its right on the river and you could hear it from the room. The breakfast is decent fare for being free. The bed was comfortable. Having the frig and microwave in the room was very handy. Good deal for the price.

Dated, but quiet with good bed

Room was clean, but dated with very old TV (poor picture). The bed was very good and the location is cool (next to the river). The breakfast was so-so. Same every morning though they ran out of cream one day. How can a hotel run out of that! And, maybe most odd, was the maid didn't do up my room one day. Not that it really needed it, but I've never NOT had my room made up in an overnight hotel stay in all my 62 years!!

Great employees

The staff was great but the entire building is in bad need of an upgrade. Needs more outlets and less extension cords, new carpeting, newer TV's and a general clean up. 1st room was over run with ants, sink didn't drain and phone didn't work. 2nd room the hair dryer was broke and didn't work, smoke detector lid was completely off and cord for the battery was just hanging out with no battery. The help does a great job considering what they have to work with and they were all so very nice and helpful the whole time we were there.
