The pool what a joke! Worst Hotel Ever!!!Talk about false advertising"continental breakfast" are you kidding me, the coffee is so bad,the bread looks stale&the bananas are rotten that's all they offer,there's no HBO it has lesser channels than basic cable,LOL..You cn hear everything that's happening in the hallway..So scary..To sum it all up this is the place where you want to do illegal things or hiding from something& you will never be caught,LOL!!!Seriously don't stay here even if you want to save some money,it's not worth it!!! It will ruin your whole trip to chicago...

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE PLACE. What a horrible,disgusting, truly terrible place. There were bed bugs and when we complained they accused us of lying and trying to get a free room. They wouldn't apologise or refund us. This place should be shut down. The staff are horrible, the rooms are horrible and management obviously has no standards.

Get the idea when the Guest Service employees and manager says they would "Never stay here!"

We didn't stay even after 2 room changes in an hour. Definitely a "by the hour" place for pros.

Enough said.

Room Tip: stay away!!!!!!!!

Should always check reviews before booking hotel on-line.
the clue should have been the armed police officer in reception, or maybe the bed bugs crawling in the bed, or the splinted door jamb that didn't secure the door or the broken blinds, heaters, lights, floor tiles, to the stink of mould, to the unsavory people hanging around, to the smell of burning drugs...the list doesn't stop..We ran away so fast and did'nt stay. A Dive, a flop house..no words can truly describe how horrible this place really is. DO NOT EVER THINK ABOUT STAYING HERE..If it is too cheap then the hotel is too cheap.

Stayed here in August 2011. Next day, discovered some bed bug bites. Went to dr. on day three, confirmed it was bed bugs. I ended up with over 110 bites, and on day 5, my wife had a few less, but hers itched more. We had not stayed anywhere else but home for three-4 weeks prior to this. Hotel was not proactive, did refund $50 cost of stay, but did not cover $250 costs for treating my home, after we got more bites 2-3 weeks later. Hope we're in the clear now, and the parent company, Americas Best Value Inn, never responded to 2 detail e-mails and photos sent via their electronic correspondence directions. FYI, bed bugs can go a year without eating, bites can take 9 days to show up, and they're hard to get rid of. Also, you don't feel the bites when they occur. It is still difficult to sleep at night sometimes.

Do not stay at this hotel. Dirty, poorly maintained, damaged furnishings, & stained bedding, floors, and fixtures. My worst hotel experience in 30 years.

The other reviews do not properly describe just how bad this place is. It is very, very bad! There are many poeple staying there that have no other place to go (cheep monthly rates too). The smell of people cooking food is everywhere. The bathrom sells like it is nver cleaned. I can not believe the Glen Elly allows them to stay in business. Glen Elly is so nice and up scale and this place should be condemed. Do not stay here.

Apparently "Americas Best Value Inn" is a new name to deceive travelers who read the review for Rodeway Inn in Glen Ellyn. They are one and the same. A disaster. Don't stay there. Read the Glen Ellyn Rodeway reviews . . . . .
