Recent guest reviews

We stayed here, two rooms the end of September for Navy PiR. Hotel was secluded and quiet which was what my sailor requested. We hung out in the king room it was large enough to accommodate our whole group. The staff was friendly and hotel was clean. There is a Walgreens within walking distance which came in handy when the airlines lost my luggage and I had to purchase makeup. The hotel offers a shuttle for PIR and when talking our sailor back that evening it was a quick and easy drive back to base. It's also close to the two places we ate, Austins and Stevens, both very good. There is also a Starbucks near.

I'll start by saying I'm pretty picky about hotels and with it being a very special celebration stay in which our (very tired) Sailor would be visiting with us, I was even moreso. We arrived after midnight and received a very warm greeting by Angel who just so happened to be making fresh coffee. Our room was perfectly located on the first floor. Desk chair to bed was VERY tight squeeze but nothing we couldn't resolve. Very clean. Beds and pillows were wonderful, room had a Keurig type coffee maker but no fridge or microwave - we didn't think to ask upon reserving. A little disappointed by that BUT we had a cooler for drinks and breakfast area had small microwave if needed, which we didn't. This hotel was literally minutes from the RTC, an easy drive and they provide a shuttle if necessary but you MUST get name on list quick before arrival as it fills fast. We had a vehicle so not needed. Parking is ample and there is a Starbucks, Walgreens, etc. just steps away. Pool is adequately sized for hotel and felt great and was clean - has hot open shower to rinse off too. We also got a family workout in the basic gym (though they do have an adjacent facililty) that can be utilized if you ask. Breakfast was one of the best I've seen in a hotel. Hot and lots of variety and never ran low. They also allowed our Sailor to eat with us (THANK YOU!). We only had one issue while there. Our A.C. unit was not working properly but one phone call and 10 minutes later, Angel was repairing it. They also offered us a new room if we wanted. Not needed because Angel had it replaced/fixed before we could even decide!! On a final note, prior to leaving, Jennifer recognized how far of a drive we had and went out of her way to make sure we took a bag of fruit, yogurt and cinnamon rolls with us. I was amazed! Chad, Angel, Jennifer and the day crew were some of the friendliest I've ever come across and we were never made to feel like we were putting them out. The only suggestion I have is perhaps one more bench outside for sitting....other than that, I highly recommend this hotel....especially for Navy Grad families! Pricier but you get so much that makes it worth every penny.

Good location if you're in town to visit the Great Lakes RTC, very good if your there to visit the very pretty, little town of Libertyville. The hotel is adequate but definitely in need of an update. Got the room on the third floor right by the elevator and was concerned, but it turned out to be fine, no noise problem and a huge desk area because of the building's configuration. Room was clean and the bed comfortable. The facility just showed a lot of wear. Staff was nice but the van drivers to the RTC were really sweet and helpful.

Too damp in room 211. Carpet bedding and air was extremely humid.. sink stinky with slow drain and bathroom fan was not working well and made crazy noises... Finally, could not get air to work well also was only 65 degrees so tried heating room but norbeven that would take away the humdity... and WiFi only up to 2 bars and explanation was that too many people were using it. So just poor maintenance but was clean and after I closed the sink drain it didn't stink up the room.

The bed and pillows (4 to a bed) were wonderful. The breakfast was nice and hot. The place was nice and quiet. The room was nice and cold with lots of clean towels. It was a fast check in and check out.

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip to Illinois. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. My room had plenty of space and comfortable bed. I slept very good. The breakfast the following morning was a typical breakfast, but the staff did a great job of keeping everything arm and full.

We were in Chicago for our sons graduation from Navy boot camp. The hotel was beautiful and the breakfast is one of the best continental breakfasts I have had. A big thanks to them for helping make our trip special.

I love staying in at Holiday Inn Expresses when I travel. They are generally clean, offer great breakfast and have friendly staff. This one was even better than expected and did not disappoint! Very happy with everything!

Stayed at this hotel for our sons graduation from Great Lakes Naval Base. Very clean! No stains, no odors, everything looks fresh. Not afraid to walk on the carpet barefooted! Mattress and pillows are like new. Very comfy beds! We had a King Suite and it was perfect for bringing our new Sailor back with us. Breakfast buffet was very good, very fresh and clean. Can't say enough about the front desk staff for their help with even the simplest thing. They arranged all of our taxis for us! They are so efficient and really go out of their way to help! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great hotel for a quick trip. Beds and rooms were very comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast was above average compared to others. Staff was very nice and helpful. Would for sure stay again and would recommend to anyone!
