I booked 3 rooms at the Inn as our family was in town for a family event. Everyone is so pleasant, friendly and helpful. Someone even cleaned the snow off of our car every morning. The rooms are a good size, well decorated with a rather large bathroom with a walkin shower. There is a Keurig coffeemaker, a hair dryer...

This little hotel was perfect for our family reunion. We were able to gather the extended family and have them close without needing to have anyone sleep on our living room floor. Accommodations are very comfortable and luxurious.

I'm glad to hear our hotel was perfect for your gathering! Being so small makes it perfect when you need just a few rooms. I appreciate you referring your family members to us and hope that you continue to do so when the need comes up. Thank you for taking the time to do a review!

We have stayed here twice. Both stays were excellent. This location is very convenient to Morton Arboretum. The room is clean, modern, and quiet. The breakfast is hot cereal, fresh fruit, and yogurt delivered to your door. The college gym is available for hotel guests. It is a wonderful facility with running track and many exercise machines.

Inn at Water's Edge is a B&B on the campus of College of DuPage, a local community college. It is run by staff and students studying hospitality at the college and they bend over backwards to do everything for you. The rooms are well appointed with many amenities and a view of a small lake, or lagoon.

What a surprise. This is a tiny boutique hotel that is housed within the College of Dupage's Culinary and Hospitality Center. So yeah. Training ground for students. But at no point in my visit did I ever feel as though I was treated with any less than something akin to a top Hyatt or Marriot property. Extremely well done. Nicely...
