Outdated and Needs a Lot of Work

When I entered the hotel, the desk clerk was friendly and courtious. That is about all that was good about the hotel. When I entered the room the light surged with power and crackle like a bug zapper. There were cigarette burns in the ancient carpet on the floor. The furniture looked like dumpster finds. The room had a strange smell to it. I actually checked out and found another hotel. I would not recommend to anyone.

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.

cheep but Ok for the price.

Long check in. No helpful info at check-in. Room needed to be updated(new carpet, very worn). Pool needed to have another person (total of two) for entry. Unable to use pool as traveling alone. Price was very good. Breakfest was fair to poor not much choice. I much perfer Marriott.

Served it's purpose

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 tip: Short walk from hotel

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!!!

Convenient Location

Located near Gurnee Mills Mall and Six Flags. Clean, and fairly quiet. No hot water on the 2nd day of our stay. Staff apologized, but did not offer to do anything else about it. Good breakfast included - several hot options as well as cold cereal.

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.
