Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by osha2012 Excellent customer service from staff
The desk staff were very polite and helpful with all of my requests. If I travel to this area in the future I would definitely stay at this hotel. It sits next to a mall with a lot of shops and stores and very accessible to the major highways in the area.

My girls and I drove in for a weekend visit with my son who attends college in Lake Forest. The room was well beyond my expectation. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. In fact my girls asked if they could just move into the room. This will be our hotel that we stay at when we visit that area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vanimal First time in a hotel with my children (3 and 2 yrs. of age)
My wife and I had a wonderful time with our children at the Vernon Hills Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean, smelled great, the linens crisp, the bathroom spotless-everything you hope for, especially, when travelling with little ones. The hotel personnel were lovely and especially, Karen and Danielle at the front desk. They were genuinely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool which was clean and did not cause any redness in the eyes. Kudos to whomever is in charge of that. We overheard people requesting van service to get them to a destination nearby and though we didn't need that service, we thought it remarkable how easy it was to get transportation (again, with a friendly smile). The room was spacious with the extra seating area. WE SHALL DEFINITELY COME BACK. My parents, who live in the area, recommend this hotel to everyone who's looking for a place to stay. They always wish they could stay too. Lastly, the breakfast was very well done. Five stars all around! Thank you.

Hello! We were at the Holiday Inn Express in Vernon Hills, Illinois. There was a group of women having a "girls not out"---a slumber party at the hotel. Well, they were so nice to us and we enjoy our stay. We will be back next year when we do this again. Thank you all at the hotel!

There was some miscommunication when we checked in about the pool. We were told the pool/spa were out of order. It led to some confusion and we were planning to check out and move to a different hotel. The front desk staff, especially Karen, were VERY helpful and accommodating, and our stay turned out great.

We have stayed at this location several times. Each time, we found the rooms and facilities very clean and fresh. The staff has been friendly and helpful. For the price, you can not beat it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZBusTraveler Excellent staff, great location and value
I stay here about one week a month and have never had a problem with the room, service or the friendly, knowledgeable staff here. The breakfast eggs could sometimes be better but for the price it is a good value and does include wide selection of bread, eggs, cereal, yogurt and even a pancake machine.
It is located near many restaurants and a large shopping mall with easy access to the tollway. There is also a large indoor pool with spa, workout room, laundry and a happy hour during the week that includes free beer and snacks!
I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area and needing a good hotel.

This location is one of my favorites. We have stayed at other locations in the area but keep coming back here. It is close to shopping and dining. The staff though is what makes this place shine. They go above and beyond what is expected to assist their guests. I do recommend this location.

My husband and I have been coming to Lake Forest for four years to watch our son play college football. We switched hotels this year because a competitor raised their prices. I could not be happier with this staff and hotel. They have gone out of their way to make each stay wonderful. Thanks for making our visits so nice.

The rooms were clean and nice, but thats where it ended! THE ENTIRE SECOND FLOOR WAS OCUPIED BY FAMILYS WITH EIGHT YEAR OLDS RUNNING BACK AND FORTH AND PLAYING HOCKEY UNTIL 11:30 AT NIGHT. THE PARENTS HAD THERE DOORS OPEN AND WHERE DRINKING. WHEN I COMPLAINED, THE FRONT DESK SAID THEY WHERE EIGHT YEAR OLDS WHAT CAN I DO. NOW WHEN I RESERVED THE ROOMS THE CLERK SAID IT WOULD BE 140.00 . FOR THE TWO ROOMS. WHEN I CHECKED OUT, THE CHARGE WAS 280.00 . ANOTHER MISUNDERSTANDING. I CALLED THE MANAGER AND SHE SAID SHE WOULD LOOK INTO THIS AND GET BACK TO ME. I'M STILL WAITING!!!

My family always chooses to stay here for local sports tournaments. Nice rooms, nice staff, good breakfast and clean. The halls could use more consistent vacuuming, but we always enjoy our stay. Very convenient to everything.

We stayed here for my son's graduation from Navy bootcamp.
The hotel was centrally located around shopping and restaurants, and not too far from the base. The beds and the room were very comfortable and clean.

I have been a regular guest for the past 4 years and have always had a clean and comfortable room. It is the staff and their dedication to provide the best service they can, that makes the difference. I feel welcome and "at home" when staying at the HIE Vernon Hills.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor317 More than we expected
We chose this location on the recommendation of our daughter's school. We will continue to stay here when we come to visit. The rooms and beds are large, clean, and comfortable. Shower was decent. The staff was helpful and attentive. Parking was convenient and so was the location. Coffee in the room helped get us going, and the breakfast was fresh with a good selection (maybe needed more fruit!)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by emnika dissappointed. expected more.
Usually Holiday Inn Express is very modern and up to date. This hotel was out of date, with a dingy appearance. Furniture, wall paper, rugs were very old looking. Dim lighting in the hallways paired with the old rugs made me dread entering the room. The room, although it looked dated, was very clean and made me feel a little less apprehensive about my stay.

Our entire soccer team stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Vernon Hills, and we were very pleased with the facilities and the staff. They started the breakfast early to accommodate the teams who had early games on Saturday. They also had a nice eating area which we were able to utilize to have a team lunch. They also provided us with maps to the soccer complex. The girls used the pool too. Thanks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gregcrew Clean, Friendly, Affordable, GREAT Breakfast Variety
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and will continue to stay here when we travel to the area. The rooms are spacious with queen beds and large pull out couch. They are very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The pool, hot tub and fitness room are very adequate. The breakfast variety is the best, but they need to work on their efficiency. Both times, restocking of breakfast was slow. The first time, they didn't restock alot which was a bummer. During our next stay, we did breakfast earlier, but still very slow to replenish when it ran out, but we gave extra time to wait on restocking and we were stuffed from all the food that was available. I give this 5 stars, but like everything, there is always room for improvement :-)
