I've stayed at worse 2 star properties. The room was big, fairly clean. The hotel has been recently renovated. The breakfast was pretty good. Waffles, sausage, hashbrowns, cereal, oatmeal, muffins. The walls were thin though, and I could hear the neighbor's kids throughout the night. I would stay here again.

The hotel was quite and very comfortable. It was right off the toll road and on a major street. Easy access and easy to find your way around. Front desk was very helpful when we asked directions. The hotel had free parking, free hot breakfast and a nice pool (Did not swim, no time) but it was indoors and looked...

The Lobby looked great, the halls and carpeting where filthy. Thought at one time I'd see a silhouette of a body outlined on the hall floor. Got to my room to find 2 chairs piled in a corner with the arms busted off, a desk with no drawers. Had no water preasure in bathroom, no refridge,no microwave. Mattress must have...

Edward, the night concierge at the front desk, is a wonderful gentleman & very helpful right when you walk in to a wonderful stay. I have been to many hotels with my Family & Econo Lodge is my top favorites with great rates :) The new renovations make it feel nice & cozy like home, & it is very clean....

Let me start by saying I booked this room last minute. I picked this location because it is close to Horseshoe Casino and the casino does not have a hotel. Check in was great and had no problem with my reservation through a third party site (priceline). I had a non smoking king size room which was clean and your...

When checking out they put an additional day authorization on my card when I found out called the manager to ask why she said just wait a few days to let it stop off and then hung up on me twice without ever answering my question why when I paid in full. It has changed to choice hotel and did...

This was not my choice. A family member insisted we stay overnight outside of Chicago instead of just driving home, and this was the hotel selected. It is old and noisy, right next to the Tollway. There was an unpleasant smell when we entered our room, and my legs started to itch when I got into bed. I thought surely...
