Comfortable stay

Stayed one night while visiting Gurnee. There was only one person at the desk, so there was a bit of a line to check in, but he was very polite and apologized to everyone who was waiting. The room was clean and the king-bed we slept in was nice and comfortable. They did have a hot breakfast, but it wasn't very big. Your standard toast, mini-muffins, english muffins, cereal, milk, juice. Then you can make your own waffles, and they have biscuits and gravy & hard boiled eggs. Like I said, basic, but enough for a good breakfast.

Recruit graduation

An overall good stay. You get what you pay for, and this is no exception. Staff employees were very friendly. Continental breakfast was so so. Not anything great, but the price (free) was right. The room had a mildew type smell to it, and the tv was one from the 90s. Location was excellent. Across from six Flags, lots of food and shopping just a few minutes away, easy to get to recruit graduation too. Looking for an inexpensive place, this is it.

Close to shopping and entertainment

The good: breakfast, cookies, room temp, shower temp and water flow were acceptable. The bad: traffic pattern near a busy amusement park, major interstate. Could be somewhat problematic getting into and out of the property. The ugly: wrinkled bedding lent impression linens were dirty, mattress did not appear to be clean, no fridge/microwave as listed in property amenities, stickiness to top of desk, dresser and nightstand. All in all, I'd stay again...if the price were right. By no means the worst property at which I've stayed.

Good off season stay

The hotel was clean and the staff was excellent. It was not upscale but it was better than middle of the road and had all of the amenities that one could need. It was well situated near shopping and restaurants. The off season pricing was a great deal when compared with similar hotels in the area. My wife and I were happy with our stay.

Served it's purpose.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend and overall it was fine. Good parking available, great location near shopping and other amenities, nice continental breakfast. The lights were confusing (the bedroom had a light switch that didn't turn on the lamps), the remote for the TV seemed low on batteries and the suite had 3 chairs in it instead of a couch, which we thought was strange. Overall, good for what we needed it for.
