“Holiday Inn - Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stayed 4th of July Weekend! Awesome Hotel, Great Staff! Good Breakfast! Great Package price that included breakfast and six flags tickets. Gurnee Mills shopping mall across the street, plenty of restaurants nearby, six flags a couple of blocks down the street. Great Location. Clean Rooms. Enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. I enjoyed breakfast. The french toast was hand made and not frozen. I appreciated that and went back for a second one,

Room Tip: Rooms near elevator gave a short walk to the pool area and the main lobby.

This hotel was really nice to stay at. Was clean and accomodating. For $10 the breakfast buffet was included for 2 people and it was quite tasty. I would recommend staying here if you are in the Gurnee area.

The Holiday Inn brand never disappoints. The room was clean, restaurant service was fast and friendly, food was good quality, pool was well maintained, the front desk staff was prompt and friendly. I love that they use Bath & Bodyworks toiletries. I will continue to trust this chain.

Recently stay at this hotel to go to Six Flags. It was a short drive plus close to shopping and restaurants. Hotel was clean and friendly staff. Nice size pool and hot tub. Water was a little chilly and the hot tub was beyond hot. Could turn heat up on pool and down on hot tub. Overall it was a good experience. Nothing fancy but we were not a room much. No refrigerator or microwave.

Room Tip: We had 2 double beds...was okay but wish we had queens.

We recently stayed at this location overnight for a Cancer Treatment Center of American event. The evening we stayed we attended an event at the on-site convention center and the meal was great. For this type of facility the meal was first class and very elegant. All the staff from the front desk to the folks who clean the rooms were very friendly and helpful.

We also used the fitness center while we were there and found it to be clean and well equipped for a light workout.

The hotel and convention center were very nice. Rooms were clean, up to date and comfortable.
Everything from the Front desk to the convention meals, bar, hotel rooms, beds were great.
However we went to the hotel restaurant, Spice....we went on Saturday and were given a menu that says "Monday - Friday Only". This menu was very limited, basically chicken, a salad or a hamburger. When we asked for the Saturday menu, the waitress said she would bring it, then she came back later and said it wasn't available today...We ordered sandwiches and waited a half hour for our food to arrive. The restaurant was not busy, unless 15 people is busy for this place. We did not get checked on until most of us were almost done with our food. The food was ok, but everyone commented there was a weird aftertaste to their food. We waited another good amount of time for the waitress to return with our bills, which were all incorrect and had to be redone. Our entire group commented on the poor service and very small menu for a convention center restaurant. We wont be back.....

Room Tip: All of the rooms we viewed were good....

Rooms are fine. Staff is great. Breakfast is very good but might not be free so try to get this included. Lunch/dinner restaurant is pricey. Right across the street from Gurnee Mills shopping mall and many other shops and eateries nearby. Six Flags about 1/2 mile away.
