“Friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was basic but a good size with a comfortable bed. The decoration was a bit tired but it was clean apart from some stains on the carpet. A basic breakfast is provided on a self service basis - adequate and quick. The hotel is close to quite a nice restaurant for evening meals (just across the car park). The gym is very small but treadmill and bike worked and nobody else was in there so it was fine for my needs. Not a bad choice overall in this area, where the alternatives are very limited.

Spent 3 days here because I had a business meeting at Independence Grove. The rooms are very large, much bigger than those seen in HI Express in the UK and they were being renovated during my stay. The king size bed was very comfortable with both soft and firm pillows. Breakfast was OK but not great. There are plenty of restaurants in Libertyville and a few even walking distance from the hotel - just don't expect them to be open on a Sunday. The wifi was hopeless in the rooms and so I had to come down to the lobby to get access.

Thank you for staying at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Libertyville. We're glad you enjoyed the large rooms at our facility. We recently upgraded our wifi system to 50 Mbs and that should improve our internet access. We will look into this issue and see what else we can do to improve our service. We hope to see you again when our renovations are complete. Sincerely, Kyle Mrozik.

Front desk personnel was incredibly professional & friendly! The couple checking in in front of us was SO rude & the receptionist was very patient with them. She was very well informed on how to take the train into Chicago & the station is close by. Thanks for a great stay!!

We stayed at this hotel while in Chicago to attend our sons Navy Boot Camp graduation. It was recommended to us by a fellow co-worker who had stayed there two years previous. We found the room to be extremely clean and comfortable. The desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants, advising us about the graduation experience, giving us information about driving into the City. The breakfast buffet was fresh and hot, with many choices. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Not normally a big fan of Holiday Inn's (especially Express) - but this is a rare find in small hotels. I have stayed on several occasions and each time I am impresses at how clean the rooms are. Breakfast is nothing more than "microwave fresh" - staff is friendly (if not terribly professional). But, for the price you get more than you expect.

We just stayed there for my son's graduation from navy boot camp. We are from Calif and have never been this far east.They were very helpful when I made the reservation by phone. He even gave us the phone number of a taxi to call from the O'hare airport that had a good deal. They gave us a discount because we were there for the graduation which was great since we spent so much on the plane tickets. They had fresh cookies and hot coffee or hot chocolate when we got there. They answered all our questions and gave us good advice. They have a free shuttle to and back from the graduation also. The weather was so bad that we decided to use taxis when needed. They would call the taxi for us and keep track of how long it would take. The rooms were clean and warm. I highly recommend this place.

Can't have much more of a better experience than I did here. Great staff, great rooms, and great services made this trip very comfortable. The cleanliness of the rooms impressed me quite a bit as well. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
