The Sunset Motel has a very helpful staff and is very clean. It's been in this area for years and I have no doubt it will remain here for a long time. The price was not bad either. There aren't too many hotels in the area but of all of them this one is the best. All in all an... More

This was the last motel/hotel available near Chicago during my travel date, so I was kind of scared when I booked it. Although the rooms are very small, and the location is kind of difficult to get to due to road construction, I was pleasantly surprised. The couple who manages the motel was very friendly. The rates were great. While... More
