“Above average for the price, but just average by Hampton Inn standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is an average Hampton Inn, which is not a bad thing. A good value, clean room, comfortable bed, free breakfast, efficient check-in and check-out, furnished in the typical Hampton style. The best thing for me was that it was just off the interstate, and a two minute walk to Timothy O'Toole's Irish pub!

I got in pretty late on a Monday night and got to bed around midnight. I had been turning the heater down as it seemed pretty hot in the room. Finally, I turned it down to the coldest setting and it kept blowing hot air, by the time I figured this out it was after 1am. So throughout the night I would alternate turning it off and turning it on when I woke up. So needless to say, I had a terrible nights rest.

I don't know if it is in a rough neighborhood, but the automatic doors at the main entrance are locked, so when you walk up, the person at the counter must let you in. I imagine they only do this after 10-11pm, but sounds like they may some trouble with people coming in that are not guests.

There is what looks to be a nice Irish pub out front. I got in too late to eat, but they have a large beer selection.

The front desk was very rude and unfriendly. My room said it would have a fridge and microwave and it didn't. Breakfast area was a normal buffet, had more then a few things to choose from. The bathroom area was small. Other then all that, I recommend the King size bedroom.

If you are a Hampton regular, you will be disappointed. The hotel seems old, small bath sink area, no hair dryer. Bed was uncomfortable and you could feel the springs. Breakfast area seemed like an afterthought.

Just what you would expect from a Hampton Inn. Room was as clean as I would have expected, not spotless but not "dirty". Bed was so-so comfortable, breakfast your typical free semi buffet. Staff was cordial. Nothing really negative to say about this property. Overall, would stay again if in the area. Went to the Gurnee mills mall with friends. Not too many dining options surprisingly outside of the mall, though.

This hotel is clean, the staff great and nice breakfast. The location is very convenient especially if you are going to Six Flags. For us, it is on the way to visit our son in WI. We would recommend for families or seniors like us. Staff even recommended great restaurant within walking distance. Highly recommend.

Friendly and attentive staff made sure everything was to my liking. They provided all the necessary local information to make my stay effective and straightforward. A comfortable and well run hotel that I have no hesitation in recommending.
