I needed a convenient place to stay in early recovery prior to entry into a sober living environment. The hotel is about a mile from the Des Plaines Alano Club, which worked out great. Great clubhouse w/serious sobriety time...not to mention warm and welcoming clubhouse. I also needed a place where I could be near an Orthodox church so that... More

This is a great hotel for the price. Internet service was excellent. Breakfast could have been a bit better. Parking was a bit cramped. TV was updated and channel choice was great. Staff was nice, friendly and attentive. Beds were comfortable.

We recently did a park/sleep/fly stay at this hotel. We checked in on day 1, checked out on day 2, leaving for an international vacation that same day for about a week. The check-in, parking, and room itself were all fine, nothing remarkable. The ride TO the airport was also fine (although had we left when the desk clerk recommended... More

Dear Guest, We are extremely sorry to hear your discomfort during your trip. Our night auditor could not gauge the shuttle time due to unexpected traffic and prior clients commitment. She offered you our back up service as taxi to reduce your waiting time at the airport. Since we do not control the taxi queue, she was unable to give... More

There is a lack of cleanliness, carpet is rough and is sometimes obviously not vacuumed, bathrooms are rough in some rooms, towels are tired and smell stale and bedding is suspect at times. Water...

I stay here at least four days a week. It is located near many restaurants which is great since I don't have a car at my job sight. Selma is great and always takes care of our crews that come in and makes sure we get proper service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone since it is clean.
