Very spacious and super clean living areas. Walk in showers for two, scenic balcony, a full kitchen, an elevator. Lots of activities for the whole family, which is centered around the activities center. There is mini golf an out door and indoor pools. Plus an indoor water park, horseback riding and canoes available.

We are members of Holiday Inn Club Vacations and wanted to try one of their more recent acquisitions. We reserved a Presidential Unit and invited friends to meet us there. We had read reviews and some were not favorable because there is quite a lot of updating to be done. We were very pleased with the spacious unit. Our guests... More

Facilities were great and updated to meet new owners under IGH. Relax environment for quality time with family. WiFi available only at activities center which is great for families to spend time together rather than on mobile devices. Beautiful land scapes, grounds well maintained and nested on golf course. Facilities include two pool areas one indoor and outdoor open 10... More

Stayed in the regular units, Need to update the units. Fortunately we were on the ground floor. The Presidential Units have elevators but the regular units have three stories and not elevators. Had to call and have the bathroom tub cleaned because of mold and mildew. Had to get another coffee pot because top was broken. Disappointed in the Water... More

A member of our family has a time share here and we are often invited to camp with them. It has been our family's go to spot for many years and we love this place. I have never stayed in the condo/resort area and am only familiar with the campground and amenities. The campsites are very large and there are... More

Firstly, Sheridan, Illinois is a great place. People are friendly and there are restaurants and grocery stores near by. My issue is with the actual resort. After driving 10 hours with 3 kids under the age of 13, I was given a hard time by the front desk registration staff. They were not friendly, helpful or accommodating. I have been... More

This used to be a silver-leaf and is now branded as a holiday inn resort, and when compared to other resorts of its type it is distinctly average. The staff aren't particularly friendly and the grill and pool areas are frequently very busy and playing loud music throughout the day. The wifi is very very slow throughout the resort and... More

As many others have mentioned, it does need updating. We were in building M and top corner unit. Love the balcony and view of nature. We own at other Holiday Inn properties....this one has potential in time. Our kids are 13 and 18, indoor water park is for a younger age group. It was fine because we spent several days... More

My 10 and 12 year old grandsons joined me for a lovely vacation at this resort. Even though our 2 bedroom lodge with a full kitchen was older and could use updating, it was clean. The living room furniture was not comfortable but the beds were great! There was so much to do at the resort for the kids, no... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax and Renew in Rolling Midwest Hills. The sprawling resort is located about an hour-and-a-half south of Chicago in the beautiful, rolling hills of Illinois. It features a wide range of outdoor activities for family fun. It starts with a stocked, seven-acre lake, ready for fishing. Or, rent a canoe or paddle boat and enjoy a relaxing cruise across its still waters. For swimming, we have an indoor and outdoor pool, plus the always fun year-round indoor Pirates Cay Indoor Water Park™. It features interactive water features, water slides, lazy river, food outlets and more. For sports, enjoy everything from basketball, tennis and volleyball to cross country skiing. And our 9-hole, par 3 executive golf course will help you get that swing back. Plus, the 18-hole mini golf course is a big hit with kids, as is the Activity Center with an arcade, mini movie theater and more. A playground, ball field and sports equipment and even horseback rides help round out your outdoor fun. Sheridan, IL is a rural location, making it a perfect place to get away and relax. Beautiful state parks, historic sites and golf courses are all nearby. Shopping, dining, movie theaters and other entertainment can also be found in the region. And, it's close enough to the greater Chicago area and downtown to experience a day of wonderful sites and attractions. ... more   less
