“Cheap is what you get”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

I realize this is a cheap motel but I will not stay here again. The room was nothing like the photos, except for the new sink. Room was in disrepair and the cheap upgrades were only done to mask the dated and aging motel.
No clock, no shampoo or other toiletries, no coffee, no iron, 19" crap console TV, TV reception poor at best, non-existent lobby (again no coffee).
It snowed the night I was there however walks were not clear and parking lot wasn't plowed, even though both adjacent properties were.
Reading the other review, maybe I had the worst room of the worst night but I will not be back and would recommend staying somewhere else.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

A very cheap, very clean, very basic stop over. A motel which isn't grim, infact the rooms look exactly like the photo in the listing.

The motel is located just across from the Premium Outlets about 45 mins (with traffic) from downtown Chicago. We stopped here before travelling into Chicago the next day. It was only about $35 and a couple for WiFi access. WiFi is only available in some rooms. The outside perhaps looks a little unsafe, but we had no problems at all. It was one of the better motels we stayed in.

For a little refreshment, I can recommend "Mike & Denise's Pizzaria and Pub" less than a mile away...

This is the 5th or 6th time in the last three years that I have recommended this Motel6 location to friends and family when they visit from out of state! My Dad enjoyed his stay here so much that when he booked his 2nd reservation a month after the first time; I knew I could always recommend this location even to a business associate and definitely know that the room would be acceptional! This Motel6 was renovated about two or three years ago and the rooms sport beautiful hardwood flooring - no carpets & black accessories in the bathroom sink area! New colors on the bedspreads - just make every room so inviting to stay in! Everyone that I have recommended also stay with their pets in the room and that is just such a nice bonus so that pets aren't being left with kennels or vets or another caregiver. The pets stay comfortable with their owners and that's the best way to travel - with everyone together! I am also a member of InboxDollars and am getting cash back each time I send myself or anyone else to a Motel6 and that's really cool, too! I only had one problem with this promo while staying at the Motel 6 in Maryland; the reservationist at that location had no idea what promo I was talking about and I did not receive my credit but I have not let that one incident detour me from enjoying the Motel6 that is in my backyard!!
In 2011 - as I look forward to the travel season - I will be checking into other Motel 6's and I am fairly sure I will find those locations also in excellent condition!
Thank You!
