Recent guest reviews

Reservations: Very easy check-in. I have stopped at the hotel asking if I can book using the app, and then add a pet to my stay. There were not issues. The lady at registration desk (Somar) was super nice and helpful. She has handled all right, and checked me in 3 hours earlier, which was a nice addition to my plans. She explained me all, and about their special events, and it was a very good start right there! Rooms: I booking king bed and my room had everything it needed! Refrigerator, Microwave, Safe box, separate area with desk and sofa (making the room feel and look bigger). Very clean, new fresh and nice towels. Bathroom did not have any shipped corners or anything that would stand out or your eye could cath. The sink is outside the bathroom, and it is a nice addition, as it looked like it was a kitchen sink as well. Pets: most important and best!!! People traveling with pets, CHOSE THIS HOTEL!!! I have been to many hotels as my dog was a show pet (trained to hotels). Not many hotels even with allowed pet policy will be able to match this! No limit on pet weight (at least mine was more than 25 lbs), No limit on room type, they give you a nice room, not the one which is located on the first floor where the dog can hear all noise and bark. Nobody is bugging you with extra questions making you feel like you can be responsible for your pet yourself. Which is a very good addition to feel welcome at the hotel! You can leave your pet in a crate while going out for a bit. There is an extra $25 fee per day, but it is worth it. I have stayed in other hotels and there was always something that would limit you when you are with a pet, so I could not enjoy my stay at other places. But this place rocks!! Also, there is a huge park “Century park” with lakes, pet friendly, and it is just across the road. Food: I know hotels usually make continental breakfast “nothing to eat”. This hotel had a big chose, like in old days, which was a nice surprise! Bakery (cold and warm), omelet, cereals, milk, fruits, and more which I probably did not notice. It was enough so I did not have to go anywhere else for breakfast. Also, the hours of breakfast were longer than in other hotels. Personnel and environment: cleaning personnel is very nice, no one knocking your door when you have your no disturbance sign (which happens a lot in other hotels when they need you to check-out), longer check-out hours (12pm), quiet environment. Basically, you can relax.

Great hotel and staff. Our daughter had something wrong with her ankle and we needed to take her to urgent care. The front desk staff was very helpful in finding us a nearby place. Great breakfast and the staff worked hard to keep everything stocked. I would absolutely stay here again.

good experience except a bit noisy during the long weekend

Stayed in the hotel for work all week. The hotel isn't brand new, but it is well maintained and the staff is great!

Everything was smooth and easy the whole stay. Free hot breakfast, pool, excersise room. All the space to accomidate the bussiness traveler. Even a sleeper sofa for a few extra guests. Curtious friendly efficient accomidating staff. I highly recomend!

Clean rooms with comfortable beds. I would stay at this hotel again. i will recommend for future occupancy

It was fantastic, no complaints everything was perfect.

clean rooms, very good breakfast selections, very nice staff

comfortable overall; heater was slightly erratic, toilet seat cover would not stay up, dresser drawers were hard to open and close; maid stiffed us a bit on towels after we left tip; breakfast buffet was very good

We arrived late in the evening, and we greeted by a friendly and polite staff. The room was clean. The location was off the beaten interstate path and was quiet. I am not one for hotel breakfasts and this one was no better. I'd be happier with fresh fruit and healthy aspartame free yogurt. I'd stay here again.

We stayed over night and went to sixflags we have a great time

In Chicago for our daughter's graduation from Trinity International University. Nice place to stay with large rooms, clean pool and an excellent breakfast (hot food). Would certainly stay here again.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while visiting friends for New Years Eve. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel and room. It's recently renovated and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The beds are very comfortable. The flatscreen tvs and minifridge/microwave were very nice additions to the room. The hot tub was large and the pool was well maintained - pH levels were good. The breakfast buffet was free and had a nice selection of hot/cold foods. The staff was friendly and the location was perfect. It's near a nice shopping mall with Target/Walmart and restaurants nearby. We will definitely stay here again when we visit!
