We are in Sycamore to go to a wedding. We were only going to stay 2 nights which way did. I was more than a little bit skeptical because of some of the reviews I had seen here. I booked the room thru trip advisor or hotels.com and got a fabulous rate. I found that none of bad things about... More

This is newly furnished motel and it shows. Checking went smoothly. Most facilities in this chain don't have elevators; this one does. Free coffee was offered in the lobby. The room had both a refrigerator and microwave. Everything was clean and up-to-date. My only concerns would be the size of the room which leads to a few to another issue.... More

Be warned of bed bugs at this Motel 6. I got them here end of June this year. I reported it to the owner a month later giving them a heads up on the room# , I hope and would like to think that they upped their cleaning and de-infesting. I called the national guest relations Motel 6 # (as... More

After staying 2 night in dirty and disgusting hotel in other city, motel 6 Sycamore was like a paradise: very clean and fresh room, good beds and quiet room. We had good Chicago deep dish pizza from next building only 20 meters from motel 6. We had good time to check in while they were baking pizza (40 minutes).

Everything was good in this hotel. The room we got was brand new and super clean. There were vending machines in our floor. Adding to that the service, reception, prices, breakfast, ... etc. The only thing wrong - in my opinion- was having a smoking rooms very close to the non smoking rooms. Because we spent the night in front... More

If you want a pool or frozen donuts for breakfast, don't stay here. If you enjoy a good cup of Bunn coffee, clean linens, well stocked towels already in the room, a mini-fridge & microwave in the room & might need to do a load of wash, this is the place for you! For the price, you can't beat this... More

Sycamore is a small town connected to DeKalb, Il where Northern Illinois University is. We stayed here the night before closing on our house 20 miles east as it's close to a major highway (RT 39) which we wanted to use to start a drive to Phoenix, AZ where we moved. The rooms were typical for this type of motel... More

We were struggling to find somewhere on the outskirts of Chicago which wasn't fully booked. A store owner in a nearby town pointed us in the direction of this motel 6. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and rather spacious considering their price, guests were entitled to free coffee in the morning, and were encouraged to use the nearby take-aways... More

Room smelled like old feet and a petting zoo. Pillows awful. No WiFi, complained 4 times with no solution. Checkout clerk basically called us liars about WiFi even though another couple behind us was confirming it as well. He was a totally rude and was obviously just concerned with keeping a quick buck.
