Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Gurnee

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Midweek in May. A great place to stay overnight after a long day of driving. Couldn't beat the price. We had to queen beds. One was softer than the other so we could choose the firmness we prefer. Full breakfast was a bonus

Hotel is older and outdated! Room light kept going out and you have to push the reset button. Not impressed!! Would not stay again

The hotel was VERY clean. The beds were pillow soft. The pillows were SO comfortable! The staff was very polite and always kind. The only thing the kids were bummed about was how small the pool was. More like a hot tub/whirlpool size.

Stayed for 2 nights. Room clean; bed/pillows very comfortable. Love the chocolate mints.

Pleasant stay. Our room was completely out of all toiletries (soap, shampoo, lotion and toilet paper). I only really noticed the toilet paper missing and brought it to their attention. The front staff on duty that night was very apologetic and friendly about the incident. Really not an issue that would not make me stay there again. The room itself was satisfying - our toilet also stuck a bit so had to have the top off so we could make sure it wouldn't run all night but overall comfort was fine for us as it was just a stopping point on the drive home

Room was ok...bathrm old, floor tiles moving..needs remodeling. Fridge couldn't dial temp cause it was broken...

Great staff! Queen bed wasn't the best, but ok. Hot breakfast better than most. Discount tickets to amusement park were better than any found on internet.

I was able to check in very quickly. I liked the 3 little pillows they had and I love staying where they have breakfast and always seem to have a staff member there to make sure if anything runs out it's provided right away. It's right outside the gates of Six Flags so it's the perfect location for when your tired and just want to get to a room at a decent place.

it was a wonderful stay, speciality the staff was so respecful and collaborate.

I enjoyed the convenience of the mall down the road with a movie theater and , many restaurants. The breakfast in the morning was very good too. The pool is a bit small as well as the workout room but it was good for the cost of the room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit the night before Thanksgiving day & breakfast that morning. Staff was so friendly & helpful. Only wish I had was another pillow on the beds (3 small squishy ones for 2 people doesn't cut it)

We were delighted with our stay- breakfast was great! staff very very nice

we were surprised at how nice the people were, the room was and the free breakfast. The staff was very accommodating and helpful- will definitely stay again.

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.

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.

comfortable bed, quiet hotel convenient location near highway

Staff was courteous & helpful.Breakfast was great, Close to shopping and highways. We went for RTC PIR; it was a little far from the activities but the drive was fairly easy.

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.

Excellent in every way! Staff pleasant and helpful in every way. Clean, comfortable, great breakfast. Would definately go back!

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.

Karla, Thank you for taking the time to provide a review on Orbitz. We have already started the planning to renovate all the guest bathrooms this winter. We have also replaced the fridge in the room that you stayed in with a brand new one. I hope that you visit with us again next year and experience the renovated bathrooms, as it will have a brand new look!
