Hotel needs to be retired. It most likely was tired 15 years ago. Staff seems to be doing what they can with what they have. I feel sorry for them .Not what I would expect from a Holiday Inn. Would not stay here again.

I always like to rate thing as high as possible but aside from the excellent staff the rest of our experience was just good without being excellent. The staff was incredibly friendly & helpful.

Where do I start? There was a bug crawling on the floor in our bathroom. The hand-held shower was broken. The walls were so thin that when people entered the neighboring room at 1:20 a.m. with an overtired child, we heard the wailing and ranting of the child and the loud talking of the parents as clearly as if they...

As many of the reviews stated this an older Holiday Inn with some wear visible. However, their staff bent over backwards to rectify a Hotwire booking issue (even though they didn't have to including giving us free breakfast vouchers). The room was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Perfect location for North Chicago activities such as Cubs, Northwestern, Botanical... More

I stayed here one night when my connection in Chicago canceled due to bad weather. There were no rooms anywhere nearer, so I took a chance with this and book by phone. Although this is listed at the airport as an airport hotel, there's no airport shuttle, so in desperation I took a cab ($30 each way). Imagine my surprise... More

I CANNOT BELIEVE Holiday Inn lets this motel operate under their brand! This is clearly an old 1960s motel that was poorly renovated over the years into an indoor hotel. I have been in rooms before that overlooked a pool and/or atrium but this room looked into a dark hallway! There was no window to the outside. I couldn't tell... More
