“A pleasant surprise for the price”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

I was very pleased with the Homestead Suites in Vernon Hills. I'm female and was traveling alone, and my first concern is always for safety. I felt very safe in this area. It's in a business complex, so not a lot of people are in the area without a reason for being there. I stayed there for five nights in March 2012, and my room was very nice. It wasn't brand new decor, but it was clean and comfortable, and the hotel was quiet. The view from my room was of the back side of the car wash at the gas station next door and of a church parking lot. The people at the front desk were very nice. Because the hotel doesn't include things like a swimming pool, the stay at Homestead Suites also included a free pass to the very fancy health club across the street, upon request. You had access to the classes, swimming pools, locker rooms, and lots of exercise equipment. I did my very first Zumba class there during my stay. Very fun! There was no breakfast included at this hotel, just coffee in the lobby. However, the room includes a kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, sink, and two stovetop burners, which really helped to keep down the cost of my trip. Also, because people tend to stay here for longer stretches, you do not get a daily visit from housekeeping unless you request it (and there may be a charge if you do). I'm perfectly capable of making my own bed and cleaning up after myself, so that works for me. I just booked another two-night stay at this hotel and look forward to another enjoyable stay.

My husband was working a contract job in Lincolnshire, so he, our toddler son and I stayed there from August to February. The rate that we were given was EXCELLENT! During the time that we were there, we stayed on every floor (our choice) and every room was clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about how helpful and accommodating the staff is. Since we have a toddler, I was ALWAYS doing laundry in the wee hours of the morning. But, I was always given top-notch hospitality from the staff. We also experienced something VERY unexpected during our stay there. My husband was rushed to a hospital one day and he had the vehicle and I didn't have a way for my son and I to go see him. Beth, the manager, drove us to the hospital, no questions asked. That is one of the MANY reasons that this place receives "nothing but good ratings from us."

Room Tip: The room that we had on the third floor was the largest and had the nicest TV (flat panel)

The room was spacious, immaculately clean, and comfortably appointed. The front desk staff was very helpful. We had a very nice stay and will definitley stay there again.

We had booked this hotel for 7 nights and requested a non-smoking room. While walking to our room the smell of smoke was extremely strong in the hall. Our room smelled like someone just put out a cigarette (there was an ash tray in the room). The room was not very clean and was very dated. One bed was overly soft w/no support and the other bed was about 4 inches higher and felt like it was concrete. When we called about the smoke we were told that the whole hotel is non-smoking then we inquired about the ash tray in the room. They then told us they could bring up an ionizer & let it run for an hour when we were leaving our room. We went downstairs to talk to the staff at the front desk about the smoke & condition of the room. They switched our room to another down the hall, and this one was cleaner but the remote didn't work at all. Both beds were very low to the floor and very soft - but we could deal with it. Later the first night a dog was barking in a room down the hall - I'd say by his low, howling tone it was a beagle-hound mix. The next morning we'd had enough of this depressing hotel and really didn't want to stay there for 6 more nights while vacationing. They have no food, the rooms are extermely dated, the TVs are awful, and the beds were horrible. Let's face it, even if the hotel is not great you should be able to sleep good in nice beds.
We found another hotel nearby (Hotel Indigo) and were happy to pay the extra for a very nice, clean, comfortable room.

I stayed at Homestead Vernon Hills from May to December, 2009. Yes, I spent eight months at this hotel and trust me the experience was great. The rooms were spacious, room service was excellent, rooms were well lit, with free wireless, fine kitchen and utensils, spacious closet and adjacent to the biggest Lifetime fitness facility available in Chicago area. The stay was value for money, they have a great manager Ms. Beth and a very helpful staff. They celebrate each occasion and festival and have a great shuttle service to the grocery stores and even to your office. The hotel is very close to movie theaters, shopping mall, grocery stores, post office, restaurants and off course the gym. I wish you have a fun trip and enjoy your stay.

Excellent hotel and staff. I had to change my reservation, they did it, no problems. The hotel is in a nice quiet area, right next to a great forest reservation area with a couple of lakes and nice running trails. Room was clean, TV was good, no complaints at all!

  • Liked — great location close to everything near a relaxing forest reservation
  • Disliked — no complaints!
