My husband and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had an amazing time. The front desk staff has impeccable customer service and is very helpful and welcoming. We had a living social deal which included a 2 night stay with a voucher for the resort's restaurant. The food was delicious both nights we ate there - we had...

This was my first visit to Illinois Beach and I was blown away by how beautiful it is. The rooms are clean but could use some repairs. Everything else was great. Everyone was very friendly, the food was great, and we were lucky to have temps in the mid 60's-70 in the last week of October. Made for great walks...

This is our second time staying here. Last time I was there with my adult daughter and this time we added my husband. The last time we were there a storm had demolished the roof on the pool so it was not usable. This time (three years later) the pool was usable, but they were making repairs to the roof...

The resort is fantastic! The rooms are really clean and pretty. The beds are very comfortable. There is a great view of the lake and beach. The staff is very friendly and professional. This resort is a great venue for a wedding.

The building itself was a little on the older side, but the views were incomparable. Wonderful setting. The food wasn't bad and it really took you away from the hustle and bustle of the day to day rat race. Overall I would recommend it.

This quaint little off-the-beaten path resort is the perfect place for those wanting to "get away from it all." We had our 2nd visit to the resort in July for our annual family reunion - about 60 of us in total. The staff at Illinois Beach is really great at working personally with the group and we couldn’t be happier...

We were lucky enough to have a room that over looked the lake which was breath taking especially waking up to absolutely stunning sunrises. Both mornings my children and I went out on the beach to enjoy the beauty. We enjoyed hiking in the attached state Park and also had a wonderful dinner at the onsite restaurant.....service was good until...

Tried checking in one hour before reservation on a Saturday afternoon. The room was not ready for three hours more.
