We came in on RCI timeshare. The staff was excellent, very courteous, nice & helpful. The condo we stayed in was appointed very nicely & spacious & had fireplace. Especially love it when you have a big jacuzzi tub in master suite. The grounds are nice & lot's to do in nice weather. Starved Rock State Park nearby. The pool was great, very clean and nice and warm. The surrounding area is rich in history. Ottawa, IL has wonderful architecture and The HyWay & Brite Spot restaurants are great value for your buck.
The only negative was the noise above and below us from other people. They seemed to come home at 10pm and stay up all night and you can hear every footstep & door being opened & closed. Couldn't wait to get home and get a good night's sleep. Still recovering three days later! No elevator - be prepared.
