Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Zion
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Zion
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Clean comfortable room at a decent price. Breakfast area is large and easily handled our group as well as the rest of the hotels guests. Another nice thing is they allowed us to use the breakfast area as a place to watch the NBA playoffs and drink a couple beers. The front desk staff was very helpful in finding local cuisine and helped us get around road construction and some local flooded roads. Ask for a room on the top floor(only 3 floors so not too high) and one facing the nature area to the rear of the hotel. Only complaint...the fresh free cookies were gone when we arrived...oh well.

Room Tip: Top floor with a rear facing room towards the nature area.

We visit Zion, IL at least twice a year as my wife visits CTCA for her follow up visits. Other than my previous visit, where we had noisy neighbors, our times there has been pleasant and enjoyable.

Dan and Stella are great at the front desk and always make sure you have everything you need. The young lady in the morning breakfast area was also very nice and made sure the food was hot and well prepared. She made sure the breakfast area was spic and span.

Planning to return next year for a follow up at CTCA and we have already booked reservations to return for our overnight lodging.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor are quieter and away from the parking lot

Visted Country Inn and Suites with daughter and wife for soccer tournament in late June, 2012. It was blistering hot (heat index = 111!) and humid, but the hotel room A/C worked perfectly. Room was comfortable, clean and relatively well maintained with the exception of the shower rod which was trying to fall off the wall. We particularly enjoyed the front porches which featured comfortable wooden tables and rockers - great for enjoying a glass of wine and cooling off in the evening breeze which showed up on day two of our 3-day stay. As noted in other reviews, the walk to the full service grocery is about 75 yards. The hotel breakfast featured eggs, waffles, cereal, juices, milk, etc. and was self serve.

The hotel management and staff were pleasant and ready to please. Location was good for exploring the Waukegan/Gurnee area or as a stop over spot on one's way from Chicago northbound into Wisconsin. There is also a 6 Flags amusement park about 10 minutes from this property.
While the hotel is smoke free, some of the patrons appeared to not want to cooperate - one room I walked by reeked of cigarette smoke, even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking property. Odd, since this hotel caters to those seeking treatment at the nearby cancer center. There is a free shuttle service to the cancer treatment center for hotel guests.

Grounds are well maintained and the property is located relatively close to Lake Michigan - hence the cooling breeze in the evenings. A short drive (3-4 miles) away is the small town of Winthrop Harbor and the harbor area has a couple nice restaurants for outdoor dining.

Rate was very reasonable and I would recommend the property to others.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the woods on the backside of the hotel. It was quieter o...

My daughter and I spent a few days together in Zion, IL. We stayed in one Hotel and then transferred to this hotel for a change of pace. The first thing you see is a rocking chair greeting you at the entrance to the hotel. The hotel is small and somewhat dated, but none the less inviting. The rooms are adequate and the bed offered a good nights sleep. The listing for the hotel says it had a continental breakfast, but it was a full breakfast with make your own waffles, fruit, hot and cold cereals, sausages, bacon, bagels and rolls, and assortment of juices. In addition to all this there was muffins and sweet rolls and coffee and teas.

There is a hiking trail that begins next to the hotel which has not been used in quite a while and is very overgrown so we were not able to use it.

For discount shopping lovers there is a dollar store next door and a K-Mart across the street. I remember a restaurant across the street, but I don't remember what it is. There are plenty of restaurants nearby if you have a car and a cute family restaurant around the corner.

I stayed at this hotel in February 2011 while in town for appointments at CTCA during the 2011 blizzard. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of a grocery store, Dollar General, a thrift store and a few other stores. The hotel was clean and Dan at the front desk was extremely welcoming and compassionate. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

This hotel is clean, well maintained and best of all smoke free. The staff was professional and took great care of us. Most country inns have coffee and fresh baked cookies when you arrive and this one did not but it was no big deal. Breakfast was excellent and it was really nice to use real plates, forks and glassware. It is 12 minutes to the Great Lakes Navy base and fit our needs perfectly.

Of the 20+ country inns I have stayed it South Jordan UT is still the best but I would stay here again for sure.

The staff is friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are large and have a microwave and fridge. There is an indoor pool too.
The full, hot breakfast is a great start to the day.
Definitely a good place to stay in Zion, IL.
