Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gpdjstamper Could have used a later check out
I was there for a conference and asked if I could keep the room a little longer as I wanted to take a nap during the lunch break. The front desk said I could keep the room until 12:30.
We were dimissed for lunch at 12:35. Took a nap in my car.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DKSJr probably a snob
After taking several detailed reviews, I'm more attune to what expectations IHG has of their franchises. In this case, I was not greeted as or thanked for being a platinum member and quite frankly felt like i was herded through the reception desk regardless of the fact that there was no line. Likewise, there was no offering for points or other bonus as is customary/policy now for platinum members. The bathtub had someone else's short and curlies... The restaurant attached to the hotel was great and had a wide variety of beers to go along with some very good food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by T and B Great "close to airport" hotel
Restaurant/Bar was understaffed for a Saturday night (especially graduation weekend). Staff worked hard to meet the needs - just overwhelmed.
Hotel much quieter on a Saturday night than I would have expected.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by A.McC. Mediocre hotel
The hotel looks really nice when you first walk in, but the rooms are a bit of a let-down. The chairs in the room look a bit gross and old, so we didn't sit in them. But the bed and bathroom were clean, which was the most important part.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DawnR The staff was amazing
The staff was amazing and helpful! I hadn't been to Chicago in years and the desk clerk was more than happy to recommend a visit to Navy Pier, I am so glad she suggested this!
She also recommended some restaurants and bars, all of which were just as she had described.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mother of the bride 25 Extremely disappointed
We had a wedding party stay there last weekend. The manager was rude to 3 of us while we were making reservations, once we arrived I found out I had the wrong type of room and it couldn't be changed till the next day when we made a room switch. The majority of the rooms did not have a working T.V. for both Saturday and Sunday. The final straw was that the courtesy van that was supposed to transport our wedding guests and Officient was over a half hour late and the ceremony had to be postponed which resulted in a shortened reception. I will inform our wedding venue to no longer recommend this hotel.

When I returned to my room around 12:30 in the morning I could not get into my room. The door would not unlock. I went down to the desk and the staff told me too bad, that I would have to wait. They would call an outside source to come and unlock the door. I didn't think this was a very good option. I then found my brother in law and he also went down to the front desk to complain, but to no avail. He then went to my room and strong armed the door and I was able to get in. It was about 2:00 am. When I checked out, there was no offer of compensation on your part. I was very disappointed in your service. I would not recommend your facility to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by firechikin10 Cozy comfortable room with outstanding service
The comfort and service was excellent for the price of our one week stay! The most memorable part of our stay was the outstanding service the house keeping staff provided! All of the house keeping staff were very courteous, friendly and accommodating! Compared to many other hotel stays, your house keeping staff's service was by far the best!! :) I only wish I could remember the names of the staff that performed such an excellent job, however I am terrible at remembering names. :( Thank you for a wonderful week!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GJK715 Family freindly, comfortable, reasonable
I have stayed at this hotel at least 10 times in the last 8-9 years. I have always had a great experience when staying at the Holiday Inn ElkGrove. I have four kids and they love the pool.The pool is great, the restaurant is great. The rooms are always clean and comfortable.The bar has a great selection of "craft" beers. There is plently of parking. I was very disapointed to see that they have removed the hot tub as both myself and kids always enjoyed it in the past. On a negative note, we noticed that there were no towels at the pool on Sunday morning. The towel bin was still overflowing with used towels at 10:30 in the morning and there were still dirty dishes from guests on the tables in the pool area. The pool area should be checked first thing in the morning and the pool towels should be checked every hour. This is pretty much the same with most hotels I have been to with no pool towels available, but is frustrating when you go for a swim and there are no towels. Despite a few minor glitches over the years, The Holiday Inn Elk Grove is a destination we look forward to every winter to "get away" for a weekend and try and forget about winter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LR 57 comfortable bed good night sleep
over all I had a good stay. bathroom was very small but I was only staying for 1 night. so that was not a problem. it was nice to have a free breakfast at restaurant instead of the typical serve yourself continental breakfast . however the service was very slow and our meal was Luke warm . beds were very comfortable and sheets were clean.. staff was very friendly. however on line they said that the shuttle service was free for any venue within 5 miles. and I was going to a concert that was in that range. but when i checked in I was told that they were only running a shuttle to airport. funny thing is that the arena was right on the way and they could have dropped us off in the adjacent parking lot..

The house keeping staff went above and behond with the service and attention to details. Lisza was my house keeper and the extra care she provided made you fill right at home. I also meet the lady incharge of house keeping very polite and friendly. This experience alone would justified me staying again. I have traveled for work for over 20 years and the house keeping staff at this hotel was the best that I have experienced ever great job ladies. Not to leave anyone else out everyone that I had contact with was also great and very friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CKphoto Don't bother with breakfast
This property has had a lovely lobby update recently, but the rooms didn't receive as much attention. All of the furniture has definitely been purchased on consignment from another hotel.
The man at check in was very nice and had my keys waiting. A little disappointed that as a platinum member no upgrade was offered when they did have rooms available, but it was a one night stay so I didn't press the issue.
The package I booked included breakfast. NOT WORTH IT AT ALL!! When the breakfast arrived it was already cold and not even close to how it was described on the menu. If I stay again I will go somewhere else for breakfast.
This hotel is used by a lot of truckers coming through the area, which is evident from the parking lot. The night we were at the hotel the Chicago area received quite a bit of snow and yet there had been not attempt at snow removal as of noon when we checked out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Birds79 close to airport
I checked in earlier than 3pm without a problem. The heat had two options high heat or off. The thermostat did not work. I mentioned this to the front desk and was told they would send a maintenance person to check it out. The bedding is worn.
I chose this hotel because it was less than 10 minutes to the airport car rental area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelTune Excellent Front Desk Staff - Thank You.
Thanks to the Staff for providing a welcoming and pleasant experience. The front desk, as well as the Staff involved in helping with the event set-up, breakfast, lunch etc. were excellent. This is the third time I've stayed at this hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. My only comment for improvement would be the cleanliness of the room. This is the first stay that I would say wasn't up to the usual standard I've experienced at this hotel before. The common areas of the hotel did show a higher level of cleanliness.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveB614 Room Comfort
I was very impressed with my stay at the Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village. It was convenient to my business in the area and the airport. The rooms were clean, comfortable and up-to-date with functional work space and easy to access electrical outlets. The rooms were remarkably quiet given the proximity to the airport. It was super cold when I stayed so I liked that it had a full restaurant and bar connected to the hotel. I recommend this to anyone looking to stay at a clean, quiet & reasonable hotel in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Superswede Great Experience......But
Was in Room 103 - Room was designed for special need, but is not a problem. Air Conditioning unit sits off the floor for easy access for need, BUT was extremely noisy and squeaked continually. As a seasoned traveler ear plugs are a standard accessory and were used to muffle the sound. Suggest that unit be replaced.
Our company does seminars at your hotel on a regular basis, and always enjoy the expert service, but rooms and equipment starting to show wear and tear.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hotelguest120613 Fix the Breakfast Experience
Our main reason for my wife and me writing this review is to make constructive complaints about the breakfast service at your restaurant, "Shelby Campbell's" as follows, based on our meal finished at 10:21 AM on Sat. Dec. 7th, 2013:
1. We arrived at about 9:35 AM. The dining room was COLD. Guests and staff were wearing outerwear - outdoor jackets. When I asked if staff would turn up the heat, the hostess pointed me to the plastic-box-locked thermostat control and stated that only the hotel engineer had the key, and that he was not on duty yet. What? It was 9:35 AM. Substitute help should be available.
2. The restaurant was out of groceries for the Raisin Bread French Toast that was featured in the menu.
3. The silverware used at our table was the cheapest, thinnest, greasy-spoon type of product. Well beneath Holiday Inn quality.
4. There was one more problem here but I forgot what it was. I remember upon leaving that there were (4) distinct problems.
5. A Good thing: The hostess and waitresses were engaging and courteous.
All in all, our restaurant breakfast experience at Shelby Campbell's was very bad. I tipped well for the good waitress service, but she was very hamstrung by the site troubles and therefore she was unable to deliver customer satisfaction.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by goferit Lost Luggage
Unfortunately, on our way to the airport on Saturday , November 23, 2013, my luggage and another passenger in the van lost our luggage. We did not personally lose it. Apparently the doors of the van swung open and two hard shell suitcases fell out. The driver doubled back nothing in sight. So, the inconvenience of having to did through receipts that I do have, making an estimate of damages, sending them in get reimbursed is more than what I bargained for. Hopefully this will all work out. I am grateful we made our flight that morning.

Arrival and check in was smooth and without stress. Staff was cordial. My room was small but comfortable, bathroom was super tiny. This hotel is in need of some remodeling in my opinion. Few restaurants in the area. The only restaurant at the hotel closes fairly early so good luck if you're a late arrival. This hotel is located in an industrial area near O'Hare but it is a short drive to some decent restaurants and the Rivers Casino.
