The hotel offered very reasonable rates for my long term stay in Waukegan. The room was clean and served its purpose. The staff were exceptionally helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a no-nonsense hotel in a convenient location.

I was skeptical for a while as it seemed as though every time I went to the parking lot, there was someone sleeping in a car. Never the same car. This was a constant thing during my 2 day stay. It never seemed to be a problem, it just seemed odd. Staff was friendly at checkin. Room was clean and...

Checked in , went to room very dingy . We noticed the window lock was broken and we were on first floor. We asked for a different room , the next room was just as bad. The deadbolt would not lock , the bedspreads were stained , the fan in the bathroom didn't work and cover was missing. Very rundown...

I use to live near this hotel and it has been several different budget hotels over the years but it is not the Red Roof Inn. This is a pet friendly hotel. We needed an overnight stay while in town and got a great rate from a group discount. Front desk check in was quick. Room was in the back,...

Nicely maintained older property. Very pleasant front desk person. Quiet clean and comfy beds. The rooms were larger then the Courtyard. A bit hard to find. Very convenient when we went to Genesse theater.

Clean rooms but hallways reek of smoke. The staff was very helpful and nice. It was convenient to the Genesee Theatre. There are a few restaurants close by and Gurnee Mills is about 15 minutes away. The hotel is hard to find it is located behind a strip mall.

We requested non smoking accessible room on the main floor with king bed - we received all. After booking we received a "birthday discount" and this Red Roof honoured and gave it to us - saved a few dollars. We were please overall with the facility - had refrigerator and microwave and coffee maker. We would definitely recommend to our...

Couldn't have been happier! Very flexible with travel arrangements as my sons plans were up in the air when I booked. I changed dates several times and they were so accommodating. Motel looks newer and is clean and well kept. Staff is very friendly and very helpful in suggesting things to do and eating locations. Louis even helped map out...

I have stayed at this location multiple times, but each time I stay the room I am put in feels worse than the last. I have stayed in January, March, & June. The rooms are clean, but need updating. The last time I stayed, my tub leaked, the wallpaper/paint was falling off & my shower set the smoke detector off....

DO NOT STAY HERE!! Don't know how they ever got a 4 when I checked previous reviews! Checked in very late Thurs, July 14. Room door was not securely latched; only other room was 3 doors down from the smoking rooms, so no other option. One of the beds had body hair on the sheet. Paid $78 for the room...
