La Quinta Inn & Suites Chicago Gurnee
Ranked #5 of 11 Hotels in Gurnee
Reviewed February 12, 2014

If you don't care about breakfast, this would be a great place to stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff was pleasant, the price was reasonable, and the rooms were clean and of a nice size. There was no microwave or refrigerator in our room, but otherwise all amenities that one would expect were there. The only quirk in the room was that although there was a wall thermostat, it did not control the HVAC unit at all. The controls were the standard ones mounted on the unit. The unit worked fine, so I don't know if it was a replacement unit that didn't get reconnected to the thermostat or what. It was no problem, just a quirk. The hotel has a nice indoor pool, so that is a plus.
Everything was fine until we went to breakfast. The breakfast was poor in terms of the variety and quality of food. There was an employee who came and checked the area about every 10 minutes, but there just wasn't much there that we would want to eat, and we're not picky. The apples and oranges were over ripe, there were muffins, which I (diabetic) can not eat. There were 'make-your-own' waffles, which was probably the best thing available, but I can't eat those either. I did try the oatmeal, but it was awful, tasted like cardboard. There is an IHOP withing walking distance, so if you don't mind buying breakfast, there are options.
I would have rated this hotel "Very Good" (4) if they had a reasonable breakfast. If we are traveling through the area again, I would consider staying here again, and just plan to buy my breakfast elsewhere.

This was our second time at this La Quinta - the first for my daughter's graduation from Navy boot camp and this last one for my nephew's graduation (we stayed elsewhere for my son's grad and regretted it). Room was clean, beds were very comfy and the front desk staff were excellent (special shout out to Anthony, who rocked). So many good breakfast restaurants in the area, but we did eat the free hotel breakfast on our last morning and it was just fine.

We stayed here on our way through Chicago. It was easy to get to, inexpensive, and no hassle check in at the desk. The room was clean, bed was ok, breakfast was typical. We wouldn't stay for a long trip, since the bathroom setup was bad. Shower was old, and no mirror or garbage can in the bathroom?

Had an emergency stop on Xmas evening due to bad weather and were able to get a room here immediately (awesome!) Price was very good ($69 for a room with 2 beds), but we found the room to be shabby and not well-maintained at all. Sink had a hole near the drain, bathroom floor tiles chipped, etc.... minor issues that I could overlook... however, the biggest drawback was that the room and the hallway were not very clean. Carpets didnt look to have been vacuumed recently. Plus I checked for bedbugs as i now always do (NONE!) and found no cleaning appears to occur behind or under the bed (yuck).

One other issue - we were told we'd be put in a room "away from the noise" but the people right above us sounded like they were galloping through the room until 2am.

Will not stay at this particular La Quinta again. (Other LaQuinta hotels have been much nicer, especially the one in Madison, WI.)

If you are looking for a hotel in this area for some reason you cannot go wrong with this placed. I stayed here last month when I was in town for a business conference. The hotel has is up to par and you can expect the high standards of service that the La Quinta chain is known for. The rooms were very modern, and clean. There was free breakfast at the hotel and the the hotel staff were super friendly. There was also ample parking in the parking lot and is close to the mall and restaurants.

Housekeeping needs to be more attentive. On our 2nd of 3 day stay not only did they not vacuum the room, didn't wipe down vanity, barely touched the bathroom and did not replace coffee, cups and sugar and creamer packets. Not to mention, never cleaned out the ashtrays from the time we got there to the time we left. Maybe she figured I would get bored and would be looking for something to do. Lol!
