Ok stay just needed a hotel to sleep for the night after a concert before driving 5 hours home

You get what you get. The hotel is a little ran down and the ice machine on my floor didn't work but for $50 a night that's about what you get anywhere. All in all not a bad place to stay and its location is pretty solid. Food and gas are right next to it and a target is right around the corner. The staff was really nice and if you stay there I highly recommend getting wings from Dell Rheas, they deliver to the hotel and they are out of this world good.

Lobby was dirty, desk service slow. Room was clean, no problems with it. Ample parking convenient to room.

It was an okay hotel to stay at. I was only there to sleep and have a place to shower.

The only other time I've slept at an Econo-Lodge was in August 1995. It was the location near the St. Louis airport and a very negative experience there was an inch of dirt on the carpets, cigarette burns in the sheets, a strong but ambiguous stench in the room. Somehow my family made it through two nights in that squalor. Fast forward to 20 years later. I was on a short business trip and was looking for an affordable motel room. I gave Econo-Lodge a second chance, assuming that time heals all wounds. My experience with the Willowbrook location wasn't perfect, but it was a marked improvement from all those years ago. The service was a little slow, but otherwise I left with hardly anything to complain about.

Got stranded in Chicago due to weather and this was the only hotel available for many miles. Ended up getting the last room which was a smoking room. The staff was very helpful with regards to lining up a taxi back to the airport for me the next morning. The room served it's purpose, but not some place I would otherwise stay if given a choice.
