Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Sycamore

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The good: Clean nice size room, free wifi, decent breakfast, lots of TV channels, restaurant right next door.

The bad: Restaurant right next door with a band that plays until midnight and a parking lot where people continue their conversations until well past midnight. The sound kept us up and that was after a 5 hour drive and before we need to be up at 6 am the next morning.

Bottom line: Next time we'll try the Holiday Inn Express

This is the first time that I stayed in this particular hotel. The company that I work for utlizes this hotel because it it close for its visitors and gives them a great deal. Typically this means you get a somewhat ok hotel for a cheap price. This hotel BLEW that out of the water. The person at the front desk was extremely polite, very curtious and made me feel like I was the most important person in the hotel. The gentleman at the front desk made sure that I familoiar with what the hotel provided and any near by resuarants and services that I may need. He also stated that he had just refreshed the chips and salsa in the breakfast area and that there was fresh coffee if I would like. That was very nice. When I got to my room, I was very impressed at the size and the amount of ammenities that I was given. Extra towels, 2 television ( 1 in the sitting area and 1 in the bedroom area), down comforter on the bed, mulitple pillows different firmness and the room was spotless. The temperature of the room was perfect and that made it even better. In the morning, had a breakfast that was resurant quality. Country fried chicken with roasted potatoes and gravy, waffles you make yourself, oatmeal, cereal. So many different offerings. Fresh hot coffee, juice and milk. The best part, you helped yourself and you ate off of REAL plates and drank from real cups. No styrofoam or paper products here. Totally impressive. The best part, my roonm, King size bed, mocro, fridge, coffee maker......... $89.00 a night. Not that is impressive! I would reccommend this ti everyone!!

This is a very well run hotel. It is extremely clean, outfitted with all modern conveniences, well maintained, and very well located. The staff is very helpful, front desk, breakfast, and room attendants. The only observation to be made is sound insulation between floors could be a little better.

Check in was a bit slow, and the front desk representative didn't even crack a smile. It was almost like dealing with Eeyore. Maybe he was having a bad day. That was the worst of the stay. Everything else was fine except for the blanket on the bed which smelled like men's cologne up by the neck area--but the next morning I asked for a replacement blanket be placed on the bed and the lady at the desk was pleasant and helpful..The rest of the room was VERY CLEAN and the bed was comfortable. Internet access speed was not speedy but adequate. I was pleased that the "fan" on the thermostat could be turned at an "on" status to provide a little white noise during the evening to help block out any hallway noise. Continental breakfast food was typical but ok--the coffee was very good--always a good start to the day!

We went to Sycamore, Illinois for our 50th high school reunion and we were told to stay in the Country Inn and Suites. We checked into the hotel and got a room on the first floor right across from the breakfast room. We thought it might be noisy, but it was very quiet, and very handy to walk out and get a cup of coffee or tea. The swimming pool was larger than at most hotels and right at the end of the hall. It was clean and the water temperature was good - did I mention it is an indoor pool? The breakfast is better than at most hotels as they had hot food. This hotel is also close to restaurants and right next door to Culver Ice Cream - the best! We would definately reccomend this hotel and we would stay here again every time we visit Sycamore or DeKalb.

Room Tip: I think they are all good as we had one close to the breakfast room, on the first floor, facing the...

We stayed at the Country Inn for it's proximity to Northern Illinois University. We reserved a King Suite.
Check in was seamless and we had the keys to our room in a matter of minutes. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful through our stay. The room was very clean...kudos to housekeeping! Many hotels could take a lesson from your staff. Our room had a living area with pull out sofa, chair, desk & flatscreen television. There was also a mini fridge/microwave, coffee maker & bar sink. Great for early morning coffee. The bedroom held a king bed which was comfortable and clean. We asked for a late check out if possible and the staff was happily able to accommodate us. In the lobby, there is a seating area and even a shelf for book loans during your stay in case you find yourself in need of reading material.
We stopped quickly in the lounge for the free breakfast. Everything seemed fresh, although the choice that morning was a bit of a shock for me....chicken and rosemary potatoes for breakfast? There was still a nice offering of muffins, bread for toasting and belgian waffles and fruit salad etc. All in all.....this was a wonderful hotel and I look forward to future visits.

Room Tip: A suite is certainly worth the small extra price if you are traveling with kids!
