Stayed here one night 8/9. My side of the bed was extremely comfortable.. hubby's side was a little saggy, he didn't sleep as well as I did. Extremely clean. Very comfortable sheets and towels. Towels were not of a generous size, but they were soft. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Room was quiet. Breakfast on Sunday morning was quite... More

Rooms spacious and beds comfortable. Pool and hit tub area extremely small. We sat in the lobby for several hours last night enjoying their coffee and talking. All employees... More

From our first impression at the front desk, the staff are what make this hotel so nice. A great location near many amenities. The building isn't new, but the rooms are big and clean. The beds where excellent. There is a small bar that the front desk manages, and snacks in the afternoon. We don't usually stay at unaffiliated hotels,... More

My husband and I stayed here on July 19, 2014 and had a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The room we had (a king) was very well appointed, with several nice little touches that all added up to make a big difference to us. The furnishings were very comfortable, and I especially liked the mints left on... More

This is an excellent hotel. We stayed here based on other reviews. It is all true. The rooms are very large, as big as "suites" in some other hotels. The refrigerator and microwave were nice to have during our 6 day stay. Everything about the physical facility was excellent for this class of hotel. It is up to date, clean... More

I chose this hotel online, for its location near the shopping mall and its lower price. It was just for one night, on my way back from a business conference. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a very nice hotel. The location was perfect for the mall visit. (There were also many additional stores in close proximity.) The... More

Great experience for the following 10 reasons: 1) Close to the Fox River Mall and within walking distance to great familiar restaurants. 2) Very accomodating service/front desk staff. 3) Fresh complimentary coffee/tea and cookies available in the lobby area. 4) Very modern/updated decor. 5) One of the hottest hot tubs I've experienced (definite plus!!) and the pool wasn't cold. 6)...

Service was good at the front desk and rooms were spacious, updated and clean. Breakfast was very nice too. We only wish that there was a bartender in the evenings. The location was great with a lot of shopping and eateries in the area.
