Had business in the area and was looking for a place to stay - during race week - the TownePlace Suites was very reasonable and had rooms too - first time staying at a TownePlace Suites - the room was very comfortable - would stay here again when in the area - close to places to eat and right off I80

Green Features: As with most hotels, it you hang up the towels they won't change them - since I was only here 1 night, this does not really apply

We stayed August 18th-20th. When we arrived we were treated well. We had one complaint that was immediately addressed. My family loved everything about this hotel. We will definitely be back. We would also recommend it. The manager Angela was the best.

We stayed here at the start of our Route 66 trip. The hotel was ok but the location I not the best - if I did the trip again I'd pay the extra to stay in Chicago. The rooms were a good size and the breakfast included was nice.

We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. This was the first time we had stayed at a TownePlace Suites and I was quite impressed. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were great. Our room had a small fridge and microwave, a stove top and a huge closet. There was a king size bed and a pullout sofa. Although we didn't use the pool, it looked very nice, and had a nice patio right outside. Breakfast was included with our stay, and we had to wait a bit for it be replenished but that was the only issue. Hotel was very accommodating to the group of people staying there for the wedding. Location is good too, right off of I-80 and near I-55. Would definitely stay here again and will check these hotels out in other areas while traveling.

Dear MagnumPIA,

Thank you for reviewing the TownePlace Suites! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel. Our staff works very hard to provide the cleanest hotel with the best service. On our busy weekends we try our best to replenish in the breakfast area as fast as possible, but I understand your frustration with having a wait for certain items to be replenished. I can guarantee that we will continue to improve and have items out faster. With the hotel's location right off I-80 and I-55, it's great to hear that it was very convenient for everyone coming in with the wedding!

Thanks again for your review!

Room was clean, Towels fluffy, sheets in good condition. Excellent work space and desk. Good lighting as well. Hotel was near the things we needed to do while in Joliet. Cracker Barrel is next door. Good Sports Bar across the street. Wifi worked fine. Staff is also very nice.

This hotel was exactly what I expected, although for a 'suite' it did lack some roominess and rather felt like a typical hotel room with a kitchen attached.

We arrived late on the Friday of July 4th weekend to find that the parking lot was being re-paved...really, on a holiday weekend?? It was tough to park and we were instructed to park at the hotel next door. Luckily someone left and we did get a spot...

Overall it was a nice stay-just wish someone would have scheduled maintenance during a slower time.

Dear Egtwinmom,

Thank you for your review on the TownePlace Suites Joliet. We appreciate your review and your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you felt the studio was smaller than you anticipated. If you are ever back in the area, we do have larger suites available at the hotel that you may want to look into booking.

As we continue to improve and maintain our hotel to keep it in the best condition possible, we do have occasional improvements that take place. I understand your frustration with parking during this time while we had the parking lot resurfaced. We try our best to avoid any inconvenience to our guests and try to choose the best times to make those improvements.

I hope that you're able to stay with us again in the future. Thank you!
