I ravel a lot to Gurnee. This hotel used to be pretty good but now is becoming a dump. All carpets stained, smelly room

Served it's purpose

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 16, 2010
Adequate enough for an overnight stay, I guess. The beds were lumpy and pillows had nothing left in them. TV's are the old style big box. Funny thing, the beside lamp had been wiped clean of dust on the front side but the back side was covered in dust. Make me wonder what else was half cleaned in the room? The location is good if your there to visit Six Flags and also plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The hotels little continental breakfast is your typical spread for a pit stop hotel.

Dining

Walk over to Timothy O'Tooles for some fish n chips and a cold one. Or try Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse. Order their golden sauce on anything. Heaven!! For breakfast, head about 1 mile east on Grand Ave and visit the Avalon for the most fabulous and inexpensive breakfast. It's an authentic Greek diner. Not to be missed!!!

OK for the price

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 15, 2010
I was in town on a family matter. Needed an inexpensive place to stay for 5 days. The price was right for the hotel. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and my room was adequate. It's 1 of those hotels that make you put the card on the pillow if you want clean sheets every day. On my second day, I put the card out, and no clean sheets. Same thing happened on day 3 -- no clean sheets. On day 4, I stripped the bed completely before leaving and I placed the card on the pillow. Only then did I get clean sheets. For this reason, I probably wouldn't recommend the hotel to others. If they are waiting 4 days to change sheets -- I have to wonder just how long it's been since they changed the comforter and blankets. I hate to think....

Dining

Just across the street is a nice array of dining options, from Outback Steakhouse to Joe's Crab Shack to Cracker Barrell and McDonalds. It's centrally located and close to everything, shopping, movies, even Great America.

Six Flags Trip 10/10/10

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 11, 2010
arrived at 10p to check in which in itself was nice. Since i wanted to get the most out of the day at Six Flags. [...] I appreciate the no hassle process. I also like how close this hotel is to the park.I wish i would've known the hotel was literally as close as it is since i wouldve checked in early just to avoid the extra $20 parking but when you walk all day driving at any point is better then walking.

Time saver

park at hotel and walk to Six Flags save $20 if you like to weather.

Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff.

Would recommend Tue, Aug 3, 2010
While the pool is very small it was perfect for our 2 children 6 & 8 yrs. The depth was 3 and 4 ft. Great for small children. The free continental breakfast was wonderful with hot waffles, sausage and eggs. Best continental breakfast I've had in a long time.

Very Happy Visit

Would recommend Mon, Jul 12, 2010
This was the perfect place to stay for our purposes. We were there to see my son graduate from Navy Boot Camp. Last year, when my daughter graduated, we stayed closer to RTC and it was horrible. Very noisy and not nearly as nice and clean. Here, we were far enough away to be clear of the revelers and very close to the Mall, Six Flags, the Interstate, Movie Theaters and a Sam's/Wal Mart for supplies and snacks.

Shopping hint

There is an outlet mall, several restaurants, a gigantic movie theater and several grocery stores. Everyone had access to the things they needed and wanted to do/have while we were there... and its far enough off the main road that the noise of cars and people was not heard when we rested during the night or day.
