Recent guest reviews

I checked into this location because I was working in N Chicago for one day. I used a free night from my rewards. I went to bed late around 1130 pm and woke up around 1 am and could not fall back to sleep. Around 5 AM I happen to look at the wall behind the night stand and thats when I spotted it. A Bed Bug was crawling up the wall. I grabbed one the clear plastic cups and took it to the front desk and checked out. What a waste of a free night. The desk clerk was very apologetic and took a picture of it with his cellphone as well. Would I ever stay here again? Not on your life!

The desk clerks were very good ... this is a Red Roof though. No frills. Not even a coffee pot in the room (but I always travel with one because I don't like the one-cuppers either. The hotel was quiet, the rooms, although a bit worn, were clean and the bed was comfortable. It was my first time in a Red Roof - only for one night - and since I was traveling was just fine. Plus they did have both smoking and non smoking rooms, Also had excellent wifi connection.

Traveling with 2 big dogs and a cat can make it difficult to find a place to sleep at night. They were friendly, and the room was clean and the beds warm and comfortable. It is much to look at, as it is an old motel. It was perfect for us, and the perfect price.

The hotel offered very reasonable rates for my long term stay in Waukegan. The room was clean and served its purpose. The staff were exceptionally helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a no-nonsense hotel in a convenient location.

I was skeptical for a while as it seemed as though every time I went to the parking lot, there was someone sleeping in a car. Never the same car. This was a constant thing during my 2 day stay. It never seemed to be a problem, it just seemed odd. Staff was friendly at checkin. Room was clean and the area was quiet. An issue I had was that they don't have the espn network.. I have never stayed at a hotel that didn't have espn. Doesn't mean anything to anyone unless your team is playing on monday night football, which my team was. I will stay here again if I'm in the area. I probably won't stay on a monday night though.

Checked in , went to room very dingy . We noticed the window lock was broken and we were on first floor. We asked for a different room , the next room was just as bad. The deadbolt would not lock , the bedspreads were stained , the fan in the bathroom didn't work and cover was missing. Very rundown !!!! NO WAY I WAS STAYING ANOTHER NIGHT. We checked out and we're told we would need to talk to manager about getting a refund. Not counting on it !!

I use to live near this hotel and it has been several different budget hotels over the years but it is not the Red Roof Inn. This is a pet friendly hotel. We needed an overnight stay while in town and got a great rate from a group discount. Front desk check in was quick. Room was in the back, 215 a double bed room. The room neat and clean with a comfy bed. I would definitely stay here again when I come into town.

Nicely maintained older property. Very pleasant front desk person. Quiet clean and comfy beds. The rooms were larger then the Courtyard. A bit hard to find. Very convenient when we went to Genesse theater.

Clean rooms but hallways reek of smoke. The staff was very helpful and nice. It was convenient to the Genesee Theatre. There are a few restaurants close by and Gurnee Mills is about 15 minutes away. The hotel is hard to find it is located behind a strip mall.

We requested non smoking accessible room on the main floor with king bed - we received all. After booking we received a "birthday discount" and this Red Roof honoured and gave it to us - saved a few dollars. We were please overall with the facility - had refrigerator and microwave and coffee maker. We would definitely recommend to our friends and family and stay here again.....Not too far north of Chicago.
