Route 66 Raceway

I was not impressed. We arrived around 3PM 07/10/15. The parking lot looked like a tailgate party. There were beer cans, drink cups, cigarette butts, and blowing papers everywhere. My wife went into the desk to get our keys. She was told by the person at the desk You know the breakfast is not free at your room's rate. That was the answer to her question of what time breakfast was served. We paid $169.34 FOR 1 NIGHT, and weren't welcome for breakfast. Sad part is 90 of our stays are at Choice brand properties. This the first time we have ever had a bad stay. To the property managers, you might wand to go down by door B now and then. That is where we entered and were greeted by cigarette smoke where your employees gather in your non-smoking facility.

Not recommended

Our experience at the hotel was not good. Walking on the first floor the carpet was filthy. And overbearing smell of smoke.we did have two other incidents that occurred. The day we checked in, we had no idea that the hotel changed names. From Holiday Inn to Clarion, after speaking to the General Manager on the incidents, she did credit my bill. I did read the reviews but took a chance on staying there. In any future trips we will not stay there

Nice little hotel in an off part of town...

Don't let the title scare you, as Joliet itself has a bad reputation. I am not terribly familiar with the area but I had no issues with the area and felt right at home. We were there for the NASCAR weekend and weren't able to check in early, so the staff was nice enough to get our transportation needs in order as we aren't familiar with anything out there. After returning to the hotel in the evening we ate at the restaurant which was good but had a limited menu due to the time of night. The room was clean (being in the hospitality industry myself I check for cleanliness) and well stocked. The soaps are excellent, and overall we had a great time. We will use this location again if we visit the racetrack again.

Place was ok

We got great price or I'd have been upset. Smokers got 1st floor. We had 1 SLOW elevator to take us to 3. Old air conditioner, noisy, didn't take humidity out of room and it was 95 outside. After going to race wanted relax with drink and dinner, they kicked us out at 10, on the weekend, Had 1 person working on special event weekend. Also had get breakfast voucher everyday even though was there for 4 days . No orange juice unless pay $2. Great location for race.

Uncertain about the place

GREAT price or I would have been upset with this property. The place is old, you have a noisy air conditioner that doesn't take the humidity out of the room and it was 95 outside. No refrigerator. Breakfast is included but you have to go to the front desk everyday for vouchers (we were there for 4 days) and if you wanted orange juice it was $2 extra. No fruit either. Great job on cleaning the room but 1 slow elevator. To get non-smoking room had go 2 or 3rd floor. Half the time the ice machines didn't work except on1st floor. We selected this so after late race we could come here have a drink and dinner. One person working on special event weekend and they kicked everyone out at 10.
