Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Like the good ole days
I travel a lot, really a lot. Years ago, more than i care to think, i became a fan of the HIE properties. All cotton sheets, pretty good breakfast, free internet, great staffs. Overseas i usually go with the higher end IHG offerings, but in the US HIE was the one.
Over the years and as properties aged some have fallen below excellent, but still my bed of choice. But i have to say, this property was everything that brought me to HIE way back then. Clean, quiet, outstanding staff, great breakfast, especially good coffee.
Anytime i am in the Chicago area, this is where i will stay. Excellent job guys.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meredith37 Very clean room and GREAT breakfast
Loved the clean, spacious room. I almost felt it was too big. I was at the end of the hall, so maybe I had a larger than normal room? Breakfast was varied and delicious. Lots of options, hot and cold. Fresh fruit, pancakes, omelets, bacon, cereal, juice. Nice coffee station.
The only thing I noticed on my way down the elevator (while I was waiting for it) is that the carpets could be cleaned.
Otherwise an awesome stay and great staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prem008 It was good.
I had some issues while checking in. But they were sorted out and my stay was fine. I can't say it is awesome, but it was OK.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chicagobound14 Comfortable bed, great breakfast
The hotel staff of this Holiday Inn was very friendly and helpful. Perfect place to stay if you have a family member who is graduating from boot camp. They offer shuttles to and from the Navy base, information on the graduation schedule, places to eat, train station schedules. They even had a copy of the parking permit for the navy base if you forgot yours. The breakfast was great and they opened it at 6:00am, which was great! I would stay there again if in town and would recommend this hotel to others. I can't think of anything negative to stay about it. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sassparilly Good for short stay
Everything was quite good, except for the AC. If you don't mind, or perhaps even like, cold air blowing directly onto you as you sleep, then you will enjoy your stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy in Gurnee Unhappy in Chicago North-Waukegan Gurnee
very unhappy with our resent stay. Spent a full day at a fun park and wanted a good night sleep. Arrived late and had informed the staff of the late arrival earlier in the day. Opened the door to the guest room and found a fan blowing on a wet carpet in front of the bathroom. Luckily didn't trip on fan in the middle of the floor. Then set up the sofa bed and found that the sheets for the bed were wet in the plastic container. Not damp, WET!!! Already late, so we used a sheet off of one of the other beds. I'm sorry but when one arrives to a room one expects dry sheets and a room that is clean and dry...
We registered for 5 people. Only 3 towels in room. In the morning went and got extra towels. One of the towels was dirty. Had spots and smelt. What the heck..
I have never had problems at other Holiday Inn Express facilities.

This hotel was exactly what I was looking for as a place to stay for our team. Awesome location, amazing hot breakfast and clean and quiet.
Beds were so comfortable and the air conditioning worked great at keeping the room cool.
