“SUPER DUPER”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

On our summer vacation 2012 to Chicago, we were having a difficult time finding a hotel in the downtown radius. The price point was for downtown was way too high and the days were hit and miss.
This was our first trip to Chicago and we had never been on a train before, the small town of La Grange, where the train station was not too far from the hotel and we rode the train straight to downtown. My kids loved the experience.
The hotel was good, the ride were good, rooms great. Breakfast good. Overall SUPER DUPER.

When my husband and I were pleasently surprised. We arrived to a very cheerful and friendly registration clerk. We immediately received our room. When we walked into out room I instantly noticed the bed. I have to say..it was one of the most comfortable beds that my husband and I slept in while we stayed in a hotel. The bed was heavenly and the pillows were like clouds. The room was very clean. I also loved the 3 mirrors in the bathroom. We woke up to a breakfast buffet which was fabulous and very clean. The server worked continuously stocking all the goodies for all the guests to consume. I would defiantly recommend a stay in this hotel again

I did enjoy my stay. Just about everything I needed was there. The breakfast was delicious. I particularly loved the fresh fruit. Access to the building was great. I fell in love with the little computer area where free access to the internet was available. The employees that I met were so courteous and felt more like a famiy in regards to my comfort.

I was there because my mother's funeral was taking place that weekend. My son and his wife had secured their stay there a week earlier and I had to find a hotel, at the last minute. I think the only criticism was that I had to ask for water at the desk before going to my room. I kept forgetting to do that. The water should have been there all the time as a complimentary gesture.

Dora,

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience with our property and our family of team members. It brings great pride to know that our family made your family feel at home and comfortable during such a difficult time. My sincerest sympathies on the loss of your mother.
I'm glad you enjoyed the complimentary hot breakfast and the use of the Business Center. We choose to offer the complimentary bottle of water from the front desk as a great opportunity for our team members to connect with our guests and ensure satisfaction during their stay with us. Our family looks forward to welcoming your family back for future stays while in our area.

We had home construction going on, and decided to stay at a hotel until the dust cleared. The Best Western Countryside seemed to have the best price and location combination. It did, but that's where the positives ended. Room was outdated, heater kept clicking on and off all night long, with a significant draft coming from the window. Carpet was dirty and aged. Hot water was in short supply. The small tube TV was right out of the 80's with only a few channels, and many of those didn't work. For 2 straight nights there was a college team staying, knocking on doors, being very loud, rude and obnoxious. Not the hotel's fault, but it added to a bad experience.

We had the room cleaned 1 time, only to find the bathroom floor still had hair on it, ice bucket was not emptied of melted ice and smelled. Complementary breakfast is very basic, stick to the breads and juices. Hot items not so good.

If you're looking for a just a room to sleep in, this hotel may be for you. If price is less of an issue, consider others in the area that are in better shape and updated (Holiday Inn next door, Martiott's 2 miles directly west), with a few creature comforts like a working TV and hot water. We stay at a lot of Best Western's, and are loyal to the brand, but this one ranks near the bottom.

We stayed here prior to an early morning flight out of Midway and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The customer service is superb, hotel is clean, and has everything you need for a basic stay. Upon checkin, we were told that, since we were leaving early in the morning, they could provide breakfast if it was before the scheduled 6am start time. Staff goes above and beyond. Refrigerator and microwave in the room. This isn't a luxury resort, but if you are looking for a nice, clean hotel with hard-working staff, the Best Western is your place! We would, and will most definitely stay again!

Staff was very friendly and helpful. My stay was very quiet. The room was clean, not too old, but not too new. My co-workers were more than happy with their rooms as well. Breakfast was adequate enough. The coffee was actually fantastic.
