We stayed here recently with another couple to take advantage of their park and ride operation. We had booked two rooms off the internet. One room had the park and fly and the other did not as we brought only one vehicle between the four of us. The staff did not want to honor the park and fly agreement and... More

I asked upon check in when the bar stops serving food and was incorrectly told the wrong time. They closed the kitchen 30 minutes before the time I was told. I literally was trying to place my order exactly 30 mins before the time given to me upon check in, but no luck. What really got to me was the... More

I stayed here in early January. I had a 6am flight the next day, so staying a night near the airport was much more convenient for me than driving 2 hours in the early morning to get to O'Hare. The shuttle service from the airport was quite unreliable. When I arrived, I called the hotel for an estimate on when... More

We went there and we waited for a long time before someone came to the front. We asked if there was a microwave in the room because according to the website we booked from, that was an amenity listed. The response was basically "You can't trust anything you see online so it's not our responsibility" How rude! We left to... More

The location is very convenient. It is really close to the airport. The building is really dated. The bed was really nice and the bar in the lobby had really good food. I would recommend it for a short stay.

Very tatty hotel.. Basic amenities. Not the best holiday Inn we've stayed in.. Needs updating. Breakfast OK, evening meal in bar which doubled up as Breakfast room.. On the whole very average hotel and quite far from the airport too considering its an airport hotel!

Hotel location is convenient. Hotel is pet friendly and charges a $50 fee per stay. I stayed in room 218 and the room wasn't very clean based on the thick dust that I saw on the AC.

Lobby lacks enough seating. Rooms are old and carpets are hard, even the Windows curtains are torn. Definitely needs remodeling and refurbished the rooms. There is enough parking. Wifi in the rooms is average. They have good shuttle to the airport.
