Inn at Water's Edge is beautiful, spotless, friendly, and quiet.... all the things I look for in accommodations! The comfortable room had a view of a beautiful pond, a great place to take in both the sunrise and sunset cloud formations. I also enjoyed the free water in the room, the 24 hr coffee in the lovely lounge, and the prompt delivery of a small but satisfying breakfast! The Inn itself and the College building in which it is housed felt very safe for a solo traveler, and was easily accessible from the parking lot. The culinary classrooms and cafes were not operating, but the wonderful staff informed me that it's much more exciting place to be when the students are in town. Thank you Bonnie and Maria for your hospitality. I look forward to returning!

I appreciate your very kind words regarding your stay! A lot of our guests do commend the safety and quietness of our building! Not only do our outside doors lock at 11:00p.m. but you have the private key-accessed floor as well. We hope to see you in the Fall Semester when the students are back so you can enjoy watching them check you in and even watch them cook in the kitchens. Thank you so much for your review!

This hotel is part of the College of DuPage Hospitality and Culinary school, primarily staffed by students. I needed a hotel at the last minute and stumbled upon this amazing place! Due to Covid, daily housekeeping was not available as in most hotels, and the breakfast was basically cereal, etc. The staff was absolutely outstanding, and the room was everything and more! The bed was extremely comfortable. I hesitate to recommend it because there are only six rooms and I might need one during my next stay; however, I highly recommend this and look forward to another stay.

Relaxing stay with more amenities than I could envision to include breakfast, very courteous and responsible staff members. Access to fitness was easy and the facility was well-maintained. We will return, for sure.

Very friendly staff and a very nice room overlooking a nice pond with birds. I loved the European style windows that open like doors (I'm embarrassed that I don't know the term). I'm glad there was a Keurig and a fridge in the room!

Thank you for reviewing your stay, Mr. Castleberry! I am so happy you enjoyed the French doors in the room as well. We wanted to make sure our guests could enjoy the view of the DeShane Pond while being able to take advantage of the cool air during the summer. It was a delight to have you and we hope you stay with us again soon!

Accommodations and Staff far exceeded expectations, and after reading previous reviews prior to booking, our expectations were relatively high. Bonnie took and confirmed our reservation, greeted us warmly upon check in, and escorted us to our room since we were first time guests - who else does that? The Inn at Waters Edge is an aesthetically beautiful place, with beautiful views. But what sets it apart the most is that it offers small details which were so appreciated and unexpected, and that I can only hope become standards in the hospitality industry.

We loved the room. The lounge was also comfortable. The staff was so pleasant and accommodating. One tweak I would make would be to include real mugs for coffee. The small styrofoam was flimsy and hard to not spill. Thanks for a great stay.

The rooms are beautiful and much effort is spent making sure guests are happy. At this time the food service possibilities are not what we have experienced in the past. But when we can put COVID fears to rest, I'm sure they will again be excellent.

The inn is on the College of DUPage campus located near a beautiful pond. It is in a quiet setting with easy parking. The walk in shower is very nice. Each morning they offer a breakfast tray in your room or in the adjacent lounge. Very reasonable rates and the staff is most helpful!!

I went to get away from the hub bub of life for a couple of days. And this was exactly what I needed. The staff is friendly and helpful. The property is clean and beautiful everywhere--the lobby, the lounge area, the room, the bathroom. The breakfast is top-notch (and included in the price, which is amazing). The cozy lounge, as I read a good book and sipped the plentiful tea with lil yummy cookies that are out 24/7, was a welcome change from my busy world. And even though it was a November day, I took a lovely walk around the pond. It is a high-end hotel on a college campus. Go figure! :-)
