Stayed here on business with FHC Great Lakes. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and had a nice lobby to work in if you don't want to be sequestered in your room. Large pool area and decent places to eat within walking distance.

The check in was speedy and professional. The room was clean, comfortable and shower worked well (i.e., water flow and temperature). This appears to be set up like the Drury Inn, if one has stayed with them. We didn't know it was an outdoor pool, but it was very warm and it was enjoyed by all who entered. The area... More

Well, I have to admit, having stayed at numerous Hampton Inn properties over the last few years for travel, at first glance from the outside it isn't much to talk about. You can slightly ascertain the old "Days Inn" shadow under the new "Hampton Inn" sign, and the outside style is reminiscent of a 1970's hotel/motel architecture. Inside it appears... More

After a horrific experience down the road at another hotel we attempted to stay at we found ourselves looking to a place to stay last minute while visiting Great America for my daughters birthday - we called first and immediately the staff was friendly, polite and made us happy about our decision to walk away from the other hotel/room we...

I really enjoy this property and have stayed several times for work in the Waukegan area. The service here is wonderful and it is perfectly located by Six Flags as well as numerous food options, some within walking distance. Front desk staff is top notch and their breakfast area is exquisite. My only complaint with this property is the lack... More

I'm not going to lie, I was completely reluctant when I booked this hotel. There was a huge festival the week I was in the Chicago area and literally every Hilton property within 50-miles of the city was completely sold out. Except this one. So because this was the only remaining hotel in metro Chicago, this one had to be... More

Standard Hampton Inn. Well kept, but could use renovation. Smallish rooms. We had two adjoining rooms for our group. No fridges in rooms. Staff was super friendly and professional, and check in/out was seamless. Close to several restaurants and lots of shopping (Gurnee Mills and Prime Outlet Mall). Free WiFi. Standard free breakfast. The air units in the rooms are... More

This was a older other hotel that Hampton Inn took over and is remodeling. They are just finishing up the remodeling in the next few weeks. The only part that needs to be finished is the breakfast area. All room have been remodeled. Value is good, front desk staff was friendly. Location is right of the I 94 Expressway. Room... More

This hotel is in major need of an overhaul. It does not compare to other similar priced hotels. The carepting is old and musty, the place has an odor to it, and the pool area needs work. However, the service was friendly and the morning breakfast was better than most. They should upgrade to double queens as the beds were... More

I just recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was clean and nice looking. We really enjoyed the continental breakfast with both cold and hot items (belgian waffle maker was perfect - and the french toast sticks were great!). The pool area is very nice with chairs and tables with umbrellas. The only small complaint I had... More
