Very clean. Staff super nice and helpful. Nice location and easily accessible to Great Lakes, airport, and Chicago.

It was a great location but the property itself was a bit run down. The restaurant was weird and the gift shop was trash.

I enjoyed the beautiful view of the beach from my room including being surrounded by a forest preserve.

The location is Great the experience not so much...Not worth the Price - At booking time the reservationist tried to raise the rate on the web price and told me to book through one of the web discounters. The room was advertised with a Lake View but did not mention that there was not a veranda to sit out on to see it and was over the HVAC equipment. - Although they have a beautiful pool area it is not vented and the temperature was over 100% with 110% humidity, so it was not usable. - The restaurant staff was over worked and they ran our of forks, knives and spoons..WHAT! - There is an outdoor area with chairs & sofas to sit by a gas fire place, but you had to ask for them to be turned on for fear that the propane to fuel them would run out. This Hotel lacks "class of service" above mediocre! It could be awesome but is poor! Very disappointing!

We enjoyed the beach/lake--spectaclar, the pool and just the ambiance of the location. A surprising get away in Cook County.

This is all about location. Beautiful place to spend a few days by the lake. Plenty of hiking opportunities and not far from Gurnee. My daughter and I had a great three night stay.

Nice place. Great indoor pool and fitness facility. Bed are nice. Staff is very nice. Plenty of room. Needs blinds in thr dining area. The sun bakes you if you sit near the window. Coffee in the lobby was usually empty and the small amount I got was very weak. That's my only complaint. Better coffee.

Food at restaurant was terrible and overpriced- the pool was awesome and the location by the beach was wonderful! Lots to do in the hotel- overall it was a nice place to stay for a night!

Very nice hotel, renovated not long ago. Private beaches, hiking trails. When we were there the wifi worked very slowly, believe that they fixed it...l

Close to shopping, really easy to jump on the train to get to Chicago. The hotel was relaxing and quiet. We can't wait to go back.

I was looking for a Holiday resort for weekend near Chicago area and after doing so much research on different travel site i found this Hotel. I recently visited hotel on my wife birthday. I really like this hotel location and price. There are so many things to do also restaurant is good. Lake shore is one of the best attraction. If you want to relax and spend time with family that hotel is best near Chicago.

We enjoyed long walks through the trails and along the lakefront. The weather was perfect, and the fall leaves complimented the lake view. We will definitely go back. The hotel is very comfortable, and the staff very friendly.

Great hotel for those of us who can't take the whole family to flordia. Beautiful views, unique design, nice pool.

Wonderful, great location on the lake and beautiful pool
