Located about 90 minutes south of Chicago, Fox River Resort is a perfect place to get away and relax. Beautiful state parks, historic sites, and golf courses are all nearby, and shopping, dining, movie theaters and more can also be found in the region and greater Chicago area. Enjoy spacious hotel-suite/condo-style bedroom villas with a full kitchen for family meals, washers and dryers, and free Wi-Fi and parking. The sprawling resort features a wide range of outdoor family activities such as fishing in our seven-acre lake, canoeing, and paddle boating. We also have indoor and outdoor pools, plus the year-round Pirate’s Cay Indoor Water Park™ with interactive water features, a lazy river, food outlets, and more! Enjoy many sports activities, play a few rounds of golf on our par-3 executive golf course, or putt around the mini golf course with the kids. Catch a movie in the on-site movie theater, play a few games in the arcade, or have some fun in the activity center!

We traded for this place as it was in our desired location, close enough to the places we wanted to visit. Nascar Chicagoland speedway, Starved Rock state park, as well as places for day trips to Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana. I knew it was a 3 star resort, so my expectations were low. Our 2 bedroom unit was well decorated and clean, so my first impression was great. Then realized the upper part of the blinds was broken, letting in a lot of street lamp light. A dresser drawer wouldn't open or close properly, the upper rack of the loud dishwasher kept falling out, the extra outlets provided only sometimes worked, and wifi was iffy. The master bath shower and bath set up weirdly opened right to the bed, too. None of those things alone were terrible , but when stacked up, were annoying. The grounds were pretty, nice little course for golfers, and the pools looked fine, but we didn't use them. It looked like the activity area for kids was nice, but a bit chaotic. Mini golf was included, and was fun. It would be nice if the paint on those buildings was touched up, and if someone threw out the old green grass carpeting that was thrown in the woods though. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We are used to mid week towel and sheet change included, but that wasn't the case. No washer dryer in rooms, but they did have a free on sight laundromat. All in all it served our purpose. 3 star is correct.

The 2 bedroom units are very nice and have balconies. There is so much to do @ the resort including water park, indoor and outdoor pools, paddle boats, golf including mini golf. Everything is very well maintained!

The last time I was at Holiday Inn Club Vacations was March 2019 in another state. The unit there had a problem with the air conditioning, the safety door latch, and the refrigerator. Even though, repair people came twice for the refrigerator, water flowed into the refrigerator the entire week I was there. After being a member for over 15 years, l would NOT recommend Holiday Inn Club Vacations. Endless Vacations and free BONUS TIME were the primary reasons we purchased into this company. Starting January 2019, HOLIDAY INN CLUB VACATIONS is NO longer honoring the Free Bonus Time, now charging as much as $70/night in addition to the almost $1,000/year maintenance fees. When we bought in years ago, we were told that the maintenance fees would be locked in what they were when we first purchased. They were a fraction then of what they are now. Since Holiday Inn and their holding company took over. We were told that we could trade up at the time we originally purchased. When it came time to do so, the company refused to do so, leaving us out of several thousands of dollars. They are not a straight forward company to deal with.

Just an easy drive from Chicago to get to. Perfect getaway spot to rest and relax. Pool indoor and outdoor is great. Rooms well kept. People overall just want to relax here. Staff is very friendly as well. I definitely would recommend.
