Hampton Inn Chicago/Gurnee

Reviewed May 13, 2007

I stayed at this hotel for business last month and the staff was very nice, the rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Just what you'd expect from a Hapmton Inn. The only complaint is that there are NO places you can shop or eat near this hotel that aren't a chain. In fact the Monkey Town (I think that's the name) restaurant across the parking lot was the only place you could walk to at all. That place was alright the first night (week night) with a great beer list and good food. Skip it on weekends though

Stayed here, for 3 nights, during a trip from New Jersey to my home in Wyoming.

The room was comfortable and quiet. There was plenty of parking available. There are elevators which can accomodate luggage carts. There is an outdoor pool (warm weather guests may be interested.) There are also a few restaurants--WITHIN A 20 MINUTE WALK--Olive Garden, Outback Steak House and "IHOP."

There is also easy access to and from the Illinois Tollway (I-94.)

On the "downside:" A number of Hampton Inns have a coin laundry, an exercise room, in-room refrigerator and in-room microwave. This particular location has none of these. For an exercise room, this property does have an arrangement with a Gold's Gym, about a 15 minute walk away. I did need to do some laundry. The nearest coin laundry I could find is in Waukegan, about 3 1/2 miles away.

Access to the main street (Grand Ave), when exiting, is cumbersome at best, although this is probably not the fault of this property. At the exit for the parking lot there is a concrete divider preventing left turns. One is then required to drive away from Grand Ave; find a parking lot of a nearby business to turn-around in, then proceed to Grand Ave.

I've stayed at the Hampton Inn Gurnee several times for business and have been very satisfied. The hotel is clean with an attentive staff. The breakfast buffet is well maintained and the 8am daily cookies are great.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Hampton. My room was on the third floor and the floor smelled slightly musty, although it was humid and rainy that day. Over all, it is your standard Hampton although it does show a little of its age.

This was my first time in the area, and when I booked the hotel, I didn't realize how close it was to Six Flags (as in two streets down). However, the traffic wasn't too bad. There are plenty of restaurants close by, with a Golden Corral next door.

Check in was quick and easy, and what was most appealing as a business traveller was the free internet access. The King room was spacious and decently appointed. There is a floor heat/AC unit, but it was a newer GE model and relatively quiet. The room opened out to a VERY small balcony, but it was clean.

The bathroom was small and did not have a lot of counterspace.

The breakfast was decent, as were the evening cookies. The soda vending machine us a little pricey, but there's a gas station across the street.

If I were in the Gurnee area in the future, I would definitely stay here again.

I had a pretty good stay, hassle-free, and all comforts were there. The place looks pretty new, it's right across the streat from Six Flags, and right next to all of the outlet malls, and it's also right in the middle of Milwaukee and Chicago. The place is pretty clean the staff is nice. The breakfast is good too, every day the main course changes.

The Hampton Hotel is an adequate budget hotel. It is very close to Great America and the Gurnee Millls Outlet Mall. The staff was very pleasant and the complimentary breakfast was nice. Our only complaint was we stayed on a non-smoking floor and shortly after we returned from dinner out with friends, our room began to smell like cigarette smoke which my husband and I find quite offensive. We were on the 3rd floor and the 2nd floor allows smoking. It seems they do not have adequate ventilation to keep the smoke smell out of the non-smoking areas at least where we were. Since it was pretty late in the evening, we opted not to request a different room and the staff in the morning offered the room free of charge as they offer 100% satisfaction. We didn't take them up on this, but appreciated the customer service.

We stayed Hampton Inn at the first time, but we've already decided any Hampton Inn we'll stay for the next vacation! The hotel was so excellent for anybody. Breakfast was so nice, we had omlet and sausages and danish one morning, and next morning we had scrambled eggs, french toast and biscuit , and these were all free!!! The people working there were so friendly and nice. Six flags is 15min walk from hotel, so if you have a little child maybe driving is better. The pool was nice and clean.
We have nothing to complain about this hotel!
