My husband and I stayed at the Inn for two nights last week in the middle of a weeklong business trip requiring long drives every day. Our time here was the perfect interlude to allow us to feel refreshed. The room is lovely and serene and the breakfast perfect. It's the personal customer service, though, that makes this a required... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night to get a quiet evening away from the everyday hustle. The room was clean and modern. It was definitely quiet especially being on a floor with only six rooms. There was a little lounge area for breakfast the next morning which was very relaxing.

Truly a great stay at the Inn at Water's Edge. Brand new hotel that was extremely nice and had great service. One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at, especially for the price. Highly recommended.

We only stayed one night but wish we could have extended it a bit longer. This was such a nice experience! The staff was so nice and the rooms were comfy. We felt like we were at a five star European hotel. The only thing we regretted was not being able to enjoy the lovely restaurant. Can't wait to return!

Although we only live 10 minutes away, our overnight getaway was a welcome respite. I wish I'd known about it earlier! The furnishings are well-appointed and staff is very friendly. Although it's located in the midst of a fairly built-up campus area with other buildings and parking lots, our room had a nice view of a pond with water fountain.... More

Top quality service and excellent rooms. Beautifully appointed and a pleasure to visit every time I'm in the area. Close to restaurants in Glen Elyn and also has an excellent restaurant onsite. I am a frequent business traveler and recommend a stay at The Waters Edge. You will not be disappointed.

The only thing I can add to the previous reviews is the students. Seeing how the students are getting valuable experience and loving it makes the stay even more special. I asked current and former students working there about the hospitality program at CoD and the feedback was honest and positive. We'll be back.

Great place to stay. The staff were extremely accommodating and went the extra mile to help us with our needs. My wife slipped into a muddy area while we were watching our grandson at a baseball game, muddying all her clothes. The staff managed to get all of them clean enough to continue our travels without a pile of useless... More
