I visit Rockford annually, so over the years I’ve gotten used to the ubiquitous hotel offerings in this locale - 95% of them clustered/squeezed in near I90/39 & State Street/Business 20. As expected, this hotel is missing That Certain Quality - nowhere near a “true” Radisson-- if you’re accustomed to the quality normally offered at a Radisson property. Instead, one can expect a very small hotel (was it formerly a Country Inn?) - with a teenytiny bar, a miniscule elevator and a very small lobby & pool area, with limited convenient parking.
However … thankfully, you CAN expect fluffy towels, ceramic coffee cups and real glassware, plus the bed was extra comfy and the pillows cozy & plentiful. Also on the bright side, the staff appeared friendly, helpful and efficient, and when I encountered a problem at checkout, they were understanding and accommodating. Long-story-short, our re-negotiated room-upgrade turned out to be a pleasing & roomy bi-level or ‘loft’ suite with a fridge/microwave & full dining table; our room even featured a lighted oil painting (nice touch), two large screen TVs and a hot tub upstairs. Our room service breakfast was okay: prompt, fairly-priced with a cheerful delivery-person. (Our only complaint was the coffee could have been higher quality, but at least it was Columbian)!
Yes I’ve come to expect That Certain Quality from hotels like Radisson!
Important note: currently, this property is undergoing major construction: hopefully upon completion, this will include some sort of outdoor patio and significant improvements to the outdoor area(s).
