“A nice surprise”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Hotel is comfortable, unpretentious, quiet, and has a nice location if you plan to play golf. Staff were nice throughout the stay.
Rooms are large, simply appointed. My bathroom was average, shower only and not enough lighting not shelving for my personal items.
Complimentary continental breakfast in the restaurant. I had dinner in the restaurant, it was OK.
Free internet in the hotel (although the signal was very low in my room).

Room Tip: Rooms on the golf course side are quiet

Very nice hotel. For those who seek rest and quietness. Beautifully located on the golf course, the rooms have great view. The interior is not modern but somehow, it does have something appealing to it. Staff is friendly. I especially liked Bill, who seem to really take care of your comfort. The lady during night shift was not very hospitable though. Some improvements to consider: modernize the rooms, have a decent place for the hair dryer in the bathroom

Our family of 4 including 2 teenagers stayed here one night last week in connecting rooms due to insurance work at our home nearby. What a pleasant surprise! The rooms are big & spacious with lots of amenities and the bathroom/showers are also quite large and upscale. You have to walk thru the Illinois Golf Hall of Fame to get the elevators which was cool, and free internet and continental breakfast was included, all for a very low AAA rate that was far less than nearby mainstream hotels. Our rooms had awesome outdoor decks and the place overall is upscale and quiet with lots of 'elbow room'. There is a restaurant/lounge and world-class golf on-site and fitness club privileges within a 10 minute walk. Also nearby via a short walk are all of the shops, restaurants & movies at The Glen. Skip the Sheraton or Hampton Inn, this is the place!

I had the pleasure of staying here over the weekend of August 29th. My sister used the facilities to hold her wedding reception. The staff was so friendly. The hotel was clean. The interior is beautiful and the rooms were gorgeous. I had a room with a balcony that over looked the golf course it was awesome. The facilities for the reception were perfect also. If I didn't live so close I would probably stay here again.

Great club in a very nice northern suburb of Chicago. We spent one night here in early June. The rooms are spotless and large, and the food was excellent. The golf course (my reason for staying here) is very playable and in perfect condition. If you are a Clubcorp Signature Gold member, this club is an amazing value.
