We stayed at this property 11/27 thru 11/30 th. The room was booked thru Expedia so we were informed by the hotel we could not obtain IHG rewards points. Really you accept money for a room through a third party but punish the guest for booking thru a third party for a lower price? Anyway, my story gets better. On... More

We were in a bind because the hotel we originally booked at didn't have the type of room we were promised. From the moment we checked into the Holiday Inn Express, we knew our trip had taken a turn for a better. The woman at the desk was wonderful, warm, friendly and professional. She gave us the ideal room for... More

We usually stay closer to Six Flags when we visit, but thought we'd try something different. This hotel is a short 10-15 minute drive from there. Staff was very friendly when I checked in.

Stayed only 1 night. Property was located in an area where we had plans so we chose it mainly for location and price. We only needed a place to sleep so amenities were not super important to us.

Great friendly staff, Clean room and great breakfast. Let us know about train from Libertyville to union station in Chicago. My only issue was no microwave or refrigerator in the room. Yes, we could've asked for one i'm sure, but kinda feel one should be in all rooms. However, I would recommend this hotel.

I overheard the manager of this location telling employees to do absolutely mundane tasks that, not only are they not qualified to do, but it seemed like a common unlawful practice. Not only that, but she didn't seem to treat her employees like people.
