Room was great. I was able to hear kids running in the hallway at 10pm. I was going to enjoy the hot tub but lots of kids were in it. The front desk staff was so polite, I forgot her name. Overall stay was wonderful and I would stay there again. I would like to recommend maybe a bottle of...

Great clean room. Great price. Nice bar with lots of good beers. The only thing I didn't like was the my room was next to an exit. It got cold in the room. Otherwise no complaints. Wonderful location also.

I booked a room with breakfast deal. What a rip off! Because I booked that rate I couldn't use my AARP discount. No one even asked for the breakfast vouchers. Everyone was walking in and eating. The sign said 11.95 for cold breakfast and 15.95 for hot breakfast buffet. It was no different than the generic continental breakfast you get...

Booked a few rooms for family & friends to celebrate my nieces 3rd birthday. The room was very spacious. The only thing was the tub is kinda tall & coming out makes it a little difficult if you are short. The toilet had a leak & got my socks & pj's all wet in the middle of the night. They...

I have been a frequent guest at the Holiday inn Gurnee. During these starys I have been made welcome and comfortable by the staff, and the restaurant and bar. Mian is the most genial and friendly bartender I've had the pleasure to meet at the Spice resturant, and the beds and pool are something I really look forward to during...

My wife and I stayed here over the Christmas holiday. It was a decent no frills hotel. It lacked some of the nice updates that IHG have added to their hotels over the past few years. I had dinner in the restaurant, actually I was the only one there due to the holiday. The food was good, but the portion...

There are definite pluses at this Holiday Inn, The restaurant and bar are outstanding. Far better than your average hotel restaurant. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The fitness center was small but very well equipped. There are some definite drawbacks. They had to put us in three rooms before they could find one that had a quiet enough bathroom...

I enjoyed my recent stay. Rooms are average but clean and comfortable. I believe they may be doing some upgrading according to one of the maintenance guys I spoke with. The bar was nice. I did not eat at the restaurant but I heard it was pricey for what they served. Hotel is in a great location across from the...

We had a great time! I booked 3 rooms and we used the shuttle to 6-Flags. Everything about the trip including the hotel room left a great memory for my family and I. Until...we were transferred at time of booking to a sales rep who talked us into a look-see for their club vacations. He took $279 for a refundable...

“Eat breakfast elsewhere and bring ear plugs! And certainly don't book a room with breakfast deal. Clearly everyone walks in and eats. No one asked for our breakfast voucher. Anyone who pays 11.95 for yogurt and cereal and 15.95 for fake eggs, frozen waffles, and oatmeal you could hang wallpaper with is crazy!!! Holiday Inn take the breakfast sign down and include it as free continental breakfast. Can't complain about what's free!”
