If the 13 original colonies visited this motel, they’d want there to be 14! Great spot to rest and turn up at the same time. Check in was quiet and easy. Sign at front desk said only two visitors per room, but the man checking us in said our moms could come too if they wanted. Excellent shower head, would definitely colonize here in the future!

The Colony Motel is what is says, nothing more nothing less. The room I had was clean and suitably equipped with a large TV, fridge & microwave. The room was clean and satisfied my requirements. It is on the road between La Grange and Brookfield and was walking distance from the Metra Station at both of these places as the local one is a peak hour only stop.

It would have been way better had I not already booked and paid for the reservation, knowing that there was a no cancellation policy. Never again. I arrived at dark, so got the key to the unit, hung my clothes on the hangars on the pole in the bathroom/closet and went to bed. The 2 bars of soap they provide you with are the exact dimensions of the little chocolate/mint candies you get from Olive Garden at the end of your meal. Same length, width and thickness. Hell I used them both just to wash the bottoms of my feet. The A/C unit worked sporadically at best, was told to keep shutting it down for an hour or so to let the compressor cool down…As I was packing up to finally leave this bad dream, I went to the closet, (daylight now) so took my clothes off the hangars and placed them in my luggage. One more quick check to make sure I had everything. And that is when I found the “glob” of black hair wound up and secured with more of the black hair. (3 pictures included below). I have no idea if this was something that someone found in the sink or tub drain, or whatever, but it was lying on the closet floor. So I took the glob to the office with my room key, laid it on the desk/glass cage/aquarium that the venomous, vicious, vile viper behind the glass cage, that was vaguely disguised as a female human, was encased in. She angrily looked at the glob, then at me. I explained how and where I found it. She then coiled and struck out at me, but thankfully the glass cage stopped her fangs from coming in contact with me and so no venom got me. However the angry hissing and coiling continued as she asked ME what I wanted HER to do about it. Just as I started to think about asking for some kind of credit on my bill, she coiled and hissed like she was rabid. I then, before she escaped the cage, told her that she would see my comments on Trip Advisor, but would never see me again at the motel. She then hissed one last time to write whatever I wanted, and that she truly hoped I would never come back again. Excellent business model all around right??

Booked this through hotels.com for $72 including tax.Wanted a cheap place for night that was near a Metra train station.This motel is just a basic no frills place to crash for one night maybe two. There is no pool, no breakfast, not even a coffee machine in the room but I knew this when i booked it. There is a 24/7 Dunkin Donuts more or less next door and plenty of places to get food to eat in or take to the motel. The room was very clean as was the bathroom and shower. The bed was very comfortable and i had no problem getting to sleep.Checking in and out was quick and the staff are friendly..HOWEVER,one huge negative point is that whilst flicking through the channels on tv, one of the was hard core porn, not to everyone's taste especially if you have kids with you, so bear that in mind if your are considering staying here. To be honest if im in the area again, i would stop here.

We booked the motel in advance. The room was clean, king size comfy bed and large flat screen (we didnt use it), AC. There was also a fridge and microwave oven. The walls are very thin, you can hear the TV from next rooms and also the traffic outside. But it is a motel :-) There are bars and restaurants in walking distance. Parking is free in front of the room and free good WiFi.
