I recently had to go to the St. Charles/Geneva/Batavia, Illinois area for a funeral. I don't know the area and I got this hotel through Hotwire®. I had no problems. In reference to other reviews I had no problems with fleas, bedbugs, or other insects. Okay, so the furniture may not have been the most modern in style BUT it was not beaten up, broken, or dirty; it was clean, dust free and did what it needed to do. The TV and alarm clock worked properly (something not every place can claim in my experience!) and there were enough outlets to charge my electronics.
There was no closet, BUT--and this is key--it was a handicapped accessible room with the necessary huge bathroom. That arrangement most likely took away from a dedicated closet space, but there WAS a shelf with a closet rod to hang my clothes on so there was no problem. The bathroom was clean, and while some people may grouse about every little water stain on the shower (and there were a few, but small, and around only a couple of screws holding the many grab rails and such in place) I had NO problems with cleanliness.
In short, it was clean, bug free, near chain restaurants that are nice for a passer-through. It was just fine. The staff was friendly and helpful as well.
I have no complaints and would stay there again if in the area for a short trip like this.
