Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

The once key hotel in the Rockford area has been Condemned by the city of Rockford. The clock tower has been going down hill for years, it was only a matter of time before this happened. Also please note the Bus stop here has been moved since the property has been condemned.

This hotel still bills itself as a resort with a water park that has been closed for over a year which in my book is false advertising. Aside from this it is very run down and dirty. The mediocre ratings that I read were generous. Stay elsewhere...

Has the most pleasant staff and is currently undergoing much needed renovations. Water resort is closed and so is outdoor pool. Dark hallways with lights out was not good. Worst part was being awakened by a drunken fight in hallway right outside my room. Went on for quite a while. Called front desk but no one answered. Not the experience...

Very nice hotel!! Needs a little updating!! Elevator was out of order! Ice machine wasn't working! Breakfast buffet was wonderful! It was fine for one night! The room was spacious and clean! The hair dryer was a blast from the past! Loved it!!

I have been staying at the Clock Tower while visiting Rockford for the last 30 years, rooms were excellent, the area has grown up and competition has put a hurt on everybodys hotel business, but who ever manages the new Clock Tower has the near perfect mix to provide the value that will bring me back. Sure am glad I...

It isnt at all like it sounds on the websites. It's practically vacant and the waterpark is basically a hoax in my mind. It's not open and dont know if it ever will be. Wouldnt have been able to get our money back if we wouldnt have stopped a few days ahead and check it out.

Would of checked out before checking in, and booked anywhere else, but nothing in the area was available during bmx nationals this weekend. First sign it was bad - the graffiti on the clock tower, then the boarded up glass patio door, over grown weeds, musty mildew stagnant Oder with a smoke smell in the no-smoking rooms and hall ways,...

We came for the water park which we found out was closed after we lugged everything inside. And paid $10 for a fridge. Called the booking agent and complained for a full refund. The place looks like a renovation stalled. Sliding doors barely worked with a lot of effort. Nearest outside entrance door would not unlock from the outside. We...
