A nice place to stay if you have business in Crystal Lake. This is a large, full service hotel that needs a bit of upgrading. The service is good and the rooms clean and comfortable. It's an hour from O'Hare so don't ask a taxi to get you there for less than $100.

We were here for a dog show. We have been at the same site for many years and they are ALWAYS very accommodating to us. The staff is great and the facility suits us well. However, the restaurant, as the last 2 I was at for dog shows - Max and Erma's in Ohio and Berners in Maryland - didn't... More

After an all day road trip, we pulled into Check in at 4:30PM. The hotel was busy- and after a 10 minute wait we were informed our room "may not be ready". After quickly informing the front desk we had to get checked in (we were on a tight timeline to attend an event), we were "upgraded" from an executive... More

Very hot and humid out so needed the A/C which worked but cycled off and on way to much. Made it smell musty and humid in between cycles. Big room but the sofa was stained pretty bad in a couple spots. Front desk very friendly and helpful. Didn't enjoy the dinner much.

Not a good experience. Several people in our party had issues with their rooms including cleanliness. One couple moved to two different rooms. Another couple moved because there was no shower certain! I found that my room was just okay...the sheets on beds were so old that they were rough to the skin, like old flannel sheets. Mattress was old... More

There is no excuse for the issues you had come your way during your stay here. I truly apologize that you had to endure such an unpleasant time here. We clearly were very busy during your stay and as a result things fell through the cracks and landed on you. It is by no means an excuse and regardless of... More

Attentive staff and excellent service when hosting an event. Event coordinators respond in a timely manner and ensure all details are to your liking. They accommodate all requests and do so very quickly. I would certainly recommend this location when hosting an event.

We had a small group (4) in for 2 days of meetings and the meeting room we had was just the right size. Our meals and refreshments were there on time and the friendly staff stopped in to make sure we were good. All the staff I ran into was very helpful and friendly.

The hotel appeared to have been recently remodeled. The room was a nice size, clean, well lighted, and the bed was comfortable. There was no microwave or refrigerator. The water pressure was excellent and the hot water was very hot. Check-in and Check out were a breeze. It was easy to connect to Wi-Fi, but the TV was a pain... More
