“worst, by far, i have ever stayed in”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2007

we wanted a spot out of chicago as we were heading to ohio next morning. this place looked good on the website(have always had good luck with bw's). the room was acceptably clean. the swimming pool was filthy. the breakfast had bugs in the oj and the gravy was ice cold. the staff seemed as though they could care less.

Stayed November 2006

Stayed at this hotel because a training session I attended was hosted here. Also, the price was right and I am a member of Best Western’s rewards club. There was a Hilton Garden Inn right next door, but it was a little pricier. Upon driving up to the hotel (which was tucked away next to I-80), you could tell that it used to be a Hampton Inn. This property is in need of some TLC.

The check-in process was antiquated as they had no computers. The hallway in which our room was located smelled of smoke and felt like 100 degrees. Fortunately, our room was smoke-free and was relatively clean. On the plus side, it did have a mini-fridge and microwave. The bed was uncomfortable and the bedding was in bad need of replacement; there was a cigarette burn on the blanket.

The “continental breakfast” was sparse and lackluster. At least the hotel had wireless Internet access.

I would not recommend this hotel, especially since there is a nicer, newer property right next door.
