chose this place based on existing reviews... i second all the praises!
clean, nicely furnished, nice water view, friendly staff (either paid professional or dupage students in training). very nice restaurant too (mon, tue it is operated by the students and their instructors), other days its leased out to a professional group. i enjoyed both meals. expect some minor "learning curves" from students in training, but none that interfere with the visit; if anything - made it charmier.
minor issues: (a) no refrigerator/micro in the rooms (but they will allow you to use a centrally located one). (b) took me a while to find the place within the collage. (apparently most students don't know about "Inn at Water's Edge", but they DO know the "Culinary and Hospitality Center", so ask for the later if lost.
