Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by finster5 Helpful bed arrangement, fair breakfast
We come to visit family each year with our kids, teenagers of different genders. We really appreciate that there are a few rooms with 3 queen beds in them, and are much more comfortable when we can book one. This is a rare room type, and avoids one of the kids sleeping on a cot. The breakfast is really a problem. The buffet room is cramped and small, there is not enough seating, and the offerings are just so-so. Not a very pleasant experience, although I will say the staff was working hard to keep things replenished in a very difficult space. We will stay here again, but only because of the 3 queen - bedded rooms. I am an IHG Rewards member, but I do not think there was any amenity at this location, although I think there was in past visits.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Faith225 If you want an average hotel to stay at this is one!
For what you pay per night and what you get staying at this hotel does not equal! I would not recommend this place to anyone to stay here. I recommend The Country Inn and Suites in Sycamore!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B Dubs Extremely comfortable beds and spacious rooms
This is my second stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Sycamore, both for my childrens graduations from Northern Illinois University. The location is very convenient and since my son's ceremony was at 5:30 we were accomodated with a late check out. The room was very spacious, and since I was staying with family members I booked a room with 3 queen sized beds. First of all I did not know such a room was available so it was a very nice surprise! The beds were extremely comfortable and so were the pillows. We all slept very well in our own beds! I could tell the rooms were updated from the last time we stayed 3 years ago. The TV was new, HD and high quality. Both check in and check out went very smoothly. My only suggestion would be to offer the complimentary breakfast a little later for those of us who are not early risers! Would definitely recommend this location to anyone staying in the area. The location was very convenient to some nice restaurants in downtown Sycamore.

Holiday Inn Express in Sycamore is one of the Best!! We drove from San Diego Ca to Chicago visiting relatives we stay at Holiday inn Express in different cities but nothing like Sycamore!!! We supposed to stay only three nights in Sycamore and the hotel was so great and we decide to stay a whole week driving back and fourth from Chicago suburbs.The staff was very friendly very attentive and helpful. We will recommend this hotel to everyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan4202013 Enjoyed our stay and were able to relax
Clean and comfortable room. Everyone from reservations (went out of her way for us) to checking out everyone were friendly and kind. We were not acknowledged as a priority member (usually a bag of goodies - we did not receive) ......she did say that our priority information was already in the system. She was very friendly, maybe they ran out? We stayed in the Whirlpool suite for a romantic and relaxing getaway. Enjoyed ourselves.....we stayed an extra night. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paups Great breakfast selections.
Overall, I enjoyed the cleanliness of the hotel and the check in was easy. The bed was super comfortable and the pillows were so.....soft, just like at home.
Originally, I was booked on a floor with kids and the staff volunteered to find a quiet room with no extra charge.
I would return again.

The hotel is noise free, clean, provides spacious rooms with a fridge and a microwave, has a pool and free wifi and breakfast. Highly recommend it to stay with a family or/and during sports teams meets.

I love staying in a Holiday Inn Express because the properties are newer and well maintained. The rooms are clean and the beds are spectacular with great pillows. Your staff was attentive and friendly without seeming to be overbearing - they were natural and helpful in their approach. Nice job - keep up the good work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wrestling parents could be better with 2 inprovements
We were staying here to attend the State Wresting Tournament.
The staff was good. The hotel rooms were clean.
The breakfast was good and the staff kept it filled.
The sheets should be replaced with softer ones.
At registration time it should be required to give your car information if it should be needed during your stay. During the night a car alarm went off many times right outside our ground floor room window. When I called the desk to inform them, they said they did not know who the car belonged to, and could not do anything to fix the problem. At check out time we were asked about our stay, we told them about the above problems and were given a discount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jamie72 Nice rooms and great service
I would recommend this hotel!! The staff was nice and the room was nice and clean. The only complaint i would have is that we had a smoking room and even though they aired it out for us, there was a hint of smoke smell in the room, but nothing a little febreez didn't fix. I would suggest that even though they are smoking rooms that the cleaning staff spray down the curtains, bed skirts and carpets after each stay. That way if someone like me has a last minute reservation and has to stay in a smoking room it will help with the smell.

We stayed at this hotel mainly because I have relatives in Sycamore IL. We were there for a visit at Christmas time. The hotel was decorated nicely for the holiday. My grandchildren enjoyed the heated pool and my daughter used the fitness center.
The breakfast was very good and the breakfast staff was very attenative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by juliesue Well maintained and very clean
This is a good hotel for this hotel category. Met all expectations. Was clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and efficient. Holiday price was somewhat high in comparison to what I am used to paying for this type of room and was surprised at the "extra person" charge for my college age child when I booked online. But, overall, very good experience and we will stay here when we are in the area again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JrPopesMom Small but nice, clean and comfortable
I booked the room for me and my two boys for a football tournament in DeKalb. Thus, the hotel was filled with young boys and their family. It was clean, up-to-date and the breakfast was wonderful. It was located near everything we needed. The ONLY negative is that the pool is rather small and there was no hot tub, which after a day out in the freezing cold was needed, but there isn't much they can do about that.
