My family and I recently stayed at this hotel during a 2 day trip to Six Flags Great America. The first room that they attempted to give us was so small that I was forced to ask for an upgrade. The upgraded suite was much nicer and larger but still very small. It was adequate at best. However, since the price was so cheap as compared with other hotels in the area, I really cannot complain.
One major complaint is that the hot tub was "out of service" and we were not told that upon checkin. Another major concern is that the pool was so small it was almost laughable. I've literally seen larger hot tubs. In addition, the chlorine in the pool was so strong and overpowering that our family could not swim in it for more than 5 minutes without burning, red eyes. My daughters eyes were literally red the entire next day.
The hot breakfast in the morning was average at best, but they ran out of food very quickly, and did not replenish it. Some of the later arriving guests were left with nothing but cold cereal remaining. To me, that is unacceptable.
Overall, our stay was just OK, but we will definitely never stay here again. The low price is attractive, but the accomodations simply are not.
