I made reservations online thru Choice Hotels..was staying there from May 31 to June 2 for my granddaughters graduation. When I arrived there you couldn't get in thru the main entrance, because they were re-doing the entrance and the hallway, so had to go to the back. When we entered was all torn up and couldn't get to the desk....

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Unfortunately renovating and construction to update the hotel can be stressful to our guests and associates as well. Having had to relocate the front desk while the new floors were being installed when required. I'm most certain the construction worker was trying to...

The Quality Inn on Tollgate Road, Elgin, Illinois is nice, clean, well cared for. The shower head was terrific! I loved the settings and the fact that I could get that 'needle-like' spray that rinses soap out of long hair so efficiently. The room was odor-free and clean, the sheets clean. The shower "body" towels could be a little bigger....

We needed to be in Elgin for a week for a funeral. We really wanted an inexpensive but decent option. The Quality Inn more than met our needs. The staff is very friendly and helpful. (I left my Nook charger and Jim mailed it back to me Priority Mail - no charge to me!). They provide a decent breakfast that...

I choose this hotel because it was close to our office and all I needed was a bed for the night. Although low cost the reception welcome was quick and friendly and the room clean and spacious. WiFi connection worked and I had no issues with speed. There is very little close to the hotel, so do not book this...

For $59.00 with Expedia I had my suspicions -- but they were unfounded! VERY clean throughout! This is formerly a Budgetel Inn ( I can tell by the construction design) nevertheless they keep the hotel up nicely. Both desk clerks I dealt with we're very kind and helpful. Nice surprise! This is where I'm staying when I'm in the area...

I stayed here for 5 days in late Dec of 2012. The rooms were about average size for a Q Inn. They were clean. The housekeeping service did a thorough job despite the hotel's age being able to be detected. The Wifi was moderately fast. The breakfast was a standard hot breakfast. For some reason, the coffee was above average....

For the very economical price we paid, this place was great. Clean, comfortable, friendly and attentive to guests' needs. Pet friendly and affordable. Easy to find right off I-90. They gave us a room near an outside door so we could easily go outside with our 2 small dogs when the need arose. There is a small fee for pets...

We stayed in a king size bed room on Nov. 16. The front desk staff were very friendly. The room was surprisingly very spacious and the bed was comfortable, not rock hard. I also loved that they provided 4 pillows, some of which were thicker than others. That way I picked the most comfortable one. The hotel was very clean...

Nice clean place and the staff (Jim) were very friendly and helpful. Did a walk-in check-in, as the 800 # I used turned out to be a 3rd party booker from India, and was fouled up. Actually got a much better rate at the front desk! Took another hour to cancel the prior reservation with that blasted 3rd party booker,...
