I had to head up to a place in Chicago's north suburbs to pick up a few things and meet family, and found a room on Hotwire for $65/night close to the place that I needed to go. Needless to say, it was this La Quinta.
Access from I-94 was extremely easy, and the hotel had plenty of parking. Check-in was quick, even with a bunch of university athletes from Concordia University checking in at the same time. And since it was Halloween, they even had a lot of Halloween candy at the front desk - a fun touch.
I then got to the room (which was actually a suite). It was huge, clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have ever had in a hotel, and much better than normal for hotels in this category. Wi-Fi was fast and free (the way hotel Wi-Fi should be); I didn't have to use my AT&T connection for anything other than phone calls, though I got a good signal. The bathroom was spotless; apparently this was a handicap room as it had a walk-in shower with handshower.
Breakfast was simple, but effective: cereal, fruit, waffles, coffee/juice, and yogurt. Not many hot offerings unlike Holiday Inn Express or Hampton, but this filled me up for some time to come. There was a pool and fitness center; as my time here was limited, I didn't use either.
Overall, by roadside hotel standards, this was really good. And even by big-city hotel standards, this would still be really good.
