My son and I stayed here one night on our way to a football game in Indiana. It was definitely dated but was clean and the man who checked us in was very nice. Free WiFi was available. There was no shampoo but there was soap. We had a small fridge and a microwave...no coffee. We slept well. The room... More

I was visiting the Abbott HQ on a business trip and I thought I would stay at this old motel in lake bluff. It's nice. Staff is nice. It's a little run down but I don't care that much. Great location with restarants a walking distance away. If you are ever staying in LB, stay at this classic.

The Sunset Motel has a very helpful staff and is very clean. It's been in this area for years and I have no doubt it will remain here for a long time. The price was not bad either. There aren't too many hotels in the area but of all of them this one is the best. All in all an... More

I had been here once before, stranded by weather, and my stay was okay. But this time the different room was not to accommodating. Yes our room was small, but it was clean. It had a tv, frig and microwave, but it was the bathroom that spooked me. It was VERY small (I couldn't change my mind in there), somewhat... More

This was the last motel/hotel available near Chicago during my travel date, so I was kind of scared when I booked it. Although the rooms are very small, and the location is kind of difficult to get to due to road construction, I was pleasantly surprised. The couple who manages the motel was very friendly. The rates were great. While... More
