My original room was booked out and the room I got was next to an exit that would slam every time everyone walked in or out. It was very loud and would wake me up every time. Also, our room was very cold and come to find out on my last night that the window was broken. As the water was coming in and could hear the wind. Had to put towels on the window.

It provided good value for a nice, clean room, well located.

The first room we were given was unfinished and dirty. There were missing baseboards in the bathroom and the floors were not cleaned at all. We complained and the second room had mold coming out of the bathroom faucet and both the sink and bathtub did not drain well and you were standing in dirty water. The breakfast area ran out of half and half both days we ate there and the food was fair at best.

The place was a mess! Wall paper hanging off bathroom missing tile mold in showers carpeting smells

The property was very clean and the staff was very friendly.

enjoyed everything and all interactions with staff

Very clean rooms, hotel staff very friendly however could not use the pool, very small and was stuffed with very loud unattended children all night. The children were very rude they had all the life saving equipment in the pool using them as “toys” splashing other quests, eating and drinking in the pool to the point there was food floating around.. Other than the pool the rooms were very comfortable and a nice breakfast in the morning.

Pleasant staff at the hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms.

We arrived an hour after check-in (4pm). Our room was stripped down with no towels or sheets. We called and they made up the room for us. The pool was dirty, but the hot tub was nice. Breakfast was ok, a normal hotel breakfast, though it didn’t open till 6:30am and I had to leave for work at 6:15, so I was only able to get a coffee & dry cinnamon roll to go. I don’t think I’d stay here again

A Nice experience, wish I could have stayed longer.

They welcomed us for boot camp graduation amd had a lunch for us as well. Their rooms are super clean, but the staff was superb!! High praise for this place!!

Dirty pool and jacuzzi. Full . Jacuzzi doesnt work.

Walking distance to a Walmart, Dollar Tree, McDonald's Etc. Halfway between Milwaukee Wisconsin and Chicago Illinois. Great location and comfortable bed. Good breakfast too.

Stayed 3 nights at this Holiday Inn while we attended the BMW Championship. It was close to many restaurants and Walmart. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was really good as those types of breakfasts go. Coffee was always fresh and hot. The room was clean and freshened up every day for us. Nice shower. We did not have much of a view, bowling alley next door, but we were there mostly to relax and sleep. Has an indoor pool and spa that looked nice but we forgot our swimsuits. Only complaint was the toilet kept running after you flushed it, I had to jiggle the handle each time to get it to stop. I did report this when we checked out so I hope they fix it for the next guests. Definitely would stay here again.

Except for bathroom shower walls which are stained (leaks?) the room was excellent, the hotel staff were very cordial, helpful and accomodating, including maid service.

Dave was an awesome driver who drove the shuttle to the graduation for the Navy. The hotel is also very close to sarges meet and greet! Great location and we will be back!

This hotel had some of the nicest staff I've ever encountered. The hotel was very clean and convenient for our stay. It's close to the Navy Recruit Training Center and shopping. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Free breakfast and shuttle service to the Navy Recruit Graduation. Very clean hotel and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were there because our son was at the navy base & everyone was very helpful to help us in every way thank y'all again

We were here to attend our sons Navy Boot Camp Graduation. Staff was extremely helpful and informative on the Graduation process. Shuttle was great and David, our driver, was fantastic! He took the time to show us where we would drop our son off after his leave. Hotel provided hotdogs, chips and cookies after graduation for the Navy Graduates and their families. Nice touch. Staff was friendly and ready to assist with answers to any questions we had. They were friendly and courteous.
