The property is relatively small at only 4 levels. The front desk attendant was friendly and professional. The lobby offered complimentary pre-packaged cookies and hot chocolate packets for guests. The room was clean and comfortable. We chose this hotel because of the kitchenette. It offered basic cookware, a toaster and utensils except for spoons which I thought was strange. The full sized fridge and dishwasher were great and it had an ice maker in the freezer. The hotel has a Lending Locker to borrow other appliances and board games. Parking lot was packed snow and had not been plowed which was disappointing. I would expect the lot to be plowed being that it is February in IL.

The staff was very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend this place to my staff I’m the owner of Quality Response Medical Staffing in San Antonio Texas

Full size refrigerator & microwave was very nice to have.

I was able to get a queen suite. The room was so nice and very spacious. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again.

Very good experience if we had a problem the staff was right on it without delays.

Very nice place, I would stay there again. Only a few minor issues: 1) The air vents on the bathroom fan and heat/AC unit had dust build up and looked like they had not been cleaned in a while. 2) There was barely any toilet paper left on the roll and no extra rolls were left in the room. Same for paper towels in the kitchenette area. 3) The chair had torn upholstery. 4) The temperature in the room was 79 no matter what setting the thermostat was on. Too warm for me; this is supposed to be a "green" hotel. Except for the dusty vents this is all small stuff. I did enjoy my stay.

The hotel was very clean and having the kitchenette was fantastic since I was there over multiple days. Traveling for business can be exhausting. I was comfortable and able to get good rest after long days of work. I would stay there again.

We checked in later in the evening because we had been at a wedding. The woman at the desk was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and even included a full size refrigerator, which didn't matter to us since we were only there one night, but it would have been useful for a longer stay. The only challenge we had was that the parking lot was a little hard to get into.

When we first got to the hotel we found out the room with double beds we booked was not available, but they quickly upgraded us. They accomodated us with lots of extra pillows (my friend is pregnant). The room itself was enormous! A full size refrigerator and stove (with free popcorn). The bathroom was my favorite with the deep wide tub perfecr for bubble baths! The bed was ok but the room was very clean. I just wish the hotel had continental breakfast.

Stayed Fri, Sat, and Sun night. Was informed at check in there would be no maid/room cleaning service for entire stay. Other hotel guests were crack heads jumping between rooms and loud barking dogs, several rooms of them. That was just on our floor. Staff was nice, but could not help. coffee maker was broken, bathroom floor stained. Would'a been great for 60 bucks a night.

Great stay, beds a little soft, woke up with sore neck and shoulder. Bummer no pool or jacuzzi, but everything else was great, very friendly staff!!! Always greeted us when we came in and wanted to make sure everything was good in our room.

We had the Queen bed suite, which included a kitchen, living room, full bath, and completely separate bedroom. It was immaculately clean and the furniture, including the mattress, was of high quality. The only small problem was that the fan was a bit noisy and could not be turned off. But I am finicky about noisy, and hardly any hotel is really quiet.

The room was clean and spacious. The staff was oustanding.

Nice place, loved the kitchenette. Helpful staff.

The service was very proffessional they made sure I had what I needed. The area is very nice and clean as well. Very relaxing, the rooms and the whole hotel itself are very well kept

Thank you so much for staying with us. Our snow removal company was a little bit behind due to the demand. We do apologize and hope you will stay with us again the next time you are in the area.
