When you walk into this place, you are overcome by the stench of body odor, cigarettes (yes, it is a smoking hotel! Didn't think those exist anymore) and stale food. The staff are obviously family and have no regard for privacy, cleanliness or extorting money from their guests. We left after two hours. I have never seen such a disgusting... More

It was 7 in the morning. Me and my wife were sleeping. The owner of the hotel broke into our room. We worked up in horror. He was telling that we did not pay money for the night stay. I showed him the bill. He did not even say sorry. He was speaking as if it was our mistake. Please... More

I chose this place because I was having a financial crunch and it was the cheapest in the area. I now understand why it was cheap. I get into the room and there's some plastic wrap on the chair. The refrigerator has some glop on the bottom shelf and it doesn't work. They replace it and it still doesn't. Maybe... More

Nice quiet room, very clean with a feel of luxury. The staff was very helpful and attentive. If I go by St Charles again I will stay with them for sure. I was very pleased with my stay especially for the price.

My family and I drove across country with our kids (2 and 4 year old boys) and dogs (2 very large dogs). I made a booking at this hotel through reservationcounter.com, and made sure to discuss the pet policies with the phone rep. I confirmed that dogs were allowed, and that there were no weight restrictions, and that the dogs... More

I called Geneva motel & wife of owner (Mrs. Pattell) stated she could not help me & will not get a refund. This is before... More

I absolutely do not recommend this "motel" to anyone! Upon arrival, I immediately noticed a horrible smell in the building. In the lobby, I waited behind a couple that was renting a room for an hourly rate (very classy). The staff at the front desk barely spoke English and were very rude. We got the room key and went up... More

My family recently stayed at the Geneva Motel Inn (formerly Days Inn) in St. Charles, Illinois. The new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Patel, were outstanding. They recently purchased the motel and are extremely dedicated to their quests. The motel offers great room rates, an indoors swimming pool, exercise area and provides continental breakfasts. We highly recommend the Geneva Motel Inn!

Our problems started when we checked in with 5 people. They didn't like a credit card so cash was paid, they counted it over and over again. After 30 min of counting the cash they gave us our keys. An hour later they complained that we didn't pay enough. The next night an item went missing from our room. When... More

We are sorry this guest was unhappy with their experience at our Hotel however, they are incorrectly stating the facts. Upon Check-in the guest's credit card rejected and declined .and we ask it there had another card. They had no other credit cards available forcing them to pay in cash. The clerk accepted nearly $1000 in small bills and took... More
