We liked that it was just a short drive to Gurnee Mills Mall and places like Walmart. The dislikes are too many to name.

Very dirty I was scared to stay and catch some kind of disease.

I am extremely dissatisfied with this hotel. Your wifi does not work!! The mattress was BROKEN!! Crumbs and pubes everywhere on the bed sheet. Everything inside the room was horribly wet/sticky that probably was due to years worth of disinfectant that didn't get wiped. The whole place reeked smell of urine or I don't know what (since you live in that filth, you either don't notice it or you deliberately ignore it). I requested for some air freshner with no help. Several lights were not working. The smell was so disgusting I didn't even stay the second night. No wonder your business is going down. No hotel with any sort of goodwill would have kept money to put people in such a dumpstar. I wish negative reveiws can completely cut off this so-called hotel from business. You should spamming people.

Old and yucky. We book for non smoking but the room we got smells cigarette

Run down place. Nasty carpets in the hallways and room. Gross sink. Used soap in bathtub. Stained towels, ripped bedsheets with crumbs on them. From a cleanliness aspect, about as horrifying as it gets without being downright unsafe.

Nothing the property was horrible the rooms were not up to sleeping conditions and my children were displeased

Not happy with the room overall. Besides the fact that it needed a thorough cleaning, the carpet is nasty looking and smells bad.

This place is a dump. It’s dirty, has an unpleasant odor, is loud, uncomfortable beds, and the advertised breakfast consists of weak coffee and prepackaged pastries. This is truly the worst dive I’ve ever been in.

The Place was Awfully. The Rug in the Room was Filthy Dirty. Made my feet black. Stains on the sheets and Blankets. Hole's in the Mattress. No Clean Towels. The WORST Experience Ever. Wish i could get Some of are Money Back.

The price was great and the bed was comfortable. The people were nice but after that it went down hill. It is really old and run down, it smells like nicotine. I would not stay here with kids. The location was good for getting to the Navy Base. If they would pull up the carpet it would help a lot.

Dirty towel, bath room, room. A really not clean hotel. No amnesty and a bad breakfast

There was nothing we liked about this place. There was no breakfast all week.

The blanket smeeled the towels were small and were discolored. Sign was small off building hard to see Breakfast was just package sweet rolls no fruit or fresh items.

Not the rooms pictures- checked in, and checked right back out! There was hair in and on the beds, floor not vacuumed, mold in mini fridge, dirty scratched sink and shower, moldy shower curtain-never stayed but ended up paying for both nights because the extremely rude manager “sunny” refused to refund any money by acting like he didn’t understand enough English! Then he Refused to let me speak with owner or anyone else! Horrible experience all around- will not book through orbitz ether since both site and hotel blame the other!

Furniture very old and broken, carpet in the room and floor very dirty

They say free complimentary breakfast but there's no breakfast. Just an lil Danish cake. That's not breakfast

We walked into the hotel and the first thing we heard was someome screaming bloody murder!!! We checked in and the front check in man was excellent. Unfortunately the hotel was not! Our first room had crumbs of some sort all over the bed, the sink and shower looked like they were never cleaned. They had pubes and actual dirt debris. The second room had a bug dead in the bed. The 3rd room we opened the door and the smell that came out was so horrendous we didn't even go inside. The 4th room was upstairs and the smell of weed that came from that floor was so strong. The carpets were covered in dirt and those beds were also disgusting. Needless to say we definitely were not going to stay. The front desk worker was so nice and refunded us after talking with his boss. Upon our departure we noticed dirty panties laying infront of our vehicle. Overall this hotel was a -10 out of 10. Even if this is THEE last hotel available, KEEP ON DRIVING!!!
