Here for our first of a 3 night stay and I could not be more impressed! I feel incredibly safe on the campus of DePage (which was a big MUST for me!) Secure parking on a busy college campus was great. The front desk ladies were incredibly sweet and helpful! The hotel only has 6 rooms, and they are on a secured 3rd floor, which I loved. Our room is beautiful and they were so kind to leave us a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. If we ever make a return trip to the Chicago area, we will always be staying here! Make sure you book your next stay here! You won't be disappointed!

The Inn at Water's Edge is a 5-star experience for a very affordable rate.

The only disappointment in our otherwise idyllic two-night stay was that we missed the homemade yogurt at breakfast on the second morning. Make sure you arrive at breakfast early to snag yours along with the homemade granola and fresh squeezed orange or grapefruit juice!

Six rooms in the hospitality and cuisine building at the College of DuPage. The room is well appointed and comfortable. The price is extremely reasonable. Best of all is the service!!!

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for two nights last week in the middle of a weeklong business trip requiring long drives every day. Our time here was the perfect interlude to allow us to feel refreshed. The room is lovely and serene and the breakfast perfect. It's the personal customer service, though, that makes this a required stop any time we are back in the Chicago area. From being escorted to our room upon check in and having an early breakfast set out on the day we left, the staff to a person is exceptional. We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Waterleaf and that night decided to bring in a pizza for dinner to eat in the lounge. When the front desk staff saw my husband carrying the box they immediately brought us cloth napkins and flatware. As soon as we were finished eating, someone arrived with a smile and whisked it all away.

My wife and I stayed here for one night to get a quiet evening away from the everyday hustle. The room was clean and modern. It was definitely quiet especially being on a floor with only six rooms. There was a little lounge area for breakfast the next morning which was very relaxing.

Truly a great stay at the Inn at Water's Edge. Brand new hotel that was extremely nice and had great service. One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at, especially for the price. Highly recommended.

We only stayed one night but wish we could have extended it a bit longer. This was such a nice experience! The staff was so nice and the rooms were comfy. We felt like we were at a five star European hotel. The only thing we regretted was not being able to enjoy the lovely restaurant.
Can't wait to return!
