“Nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2008

Got this hotel via priceline for $55/night. Hotel was right off the expressway (I-94). Clean, but typically small, rooms.Temperature controlled by thermostat, rather than selector switch on heating/cooling unit. Bathroom has toilet and tub/shower in it, sink is in entrance "hall" of room. Furnishings were in good shape and room rate included free wireless access and continental breakfast with waffles. Indoor pool area did not have many chairs, but was in good shape. For those with small children, the minimum depth is 3 feet. Only one elevator for entire building, so there can be a wait at peak time.

Many restaurants within walking distance (Cracker Barrel, Olive Garden, Outback, Joe's Crab Shack, McDonalds, IHOP). Also an easy walk to Great America (20 -25 minutes), mostly on sidewalks, but some walking on quiet residential street.

Would definitely stay here again at the price, but not as good of a value if paying the hotel's website asking price of $119. That rate is comparable with other hotels in the same area, though.

Hi there, I just got back from spending 5 days at the La Quinta Inn located in Gurnee IL. I want to say that the service was great from the moment I walked in the door. Everyone was very helpful from supplying any extras I needed, such as a forgotten toothbrush and other items and quickly at that. I was very unfamiliar with the area and they provided me with detailed directions to anywhere I needed to go, also helping me avoid all the toll roads! The continental breakfast was good and the pool & hot tub were a great temperature in a nice glass surrounding. My room was a nice size and smelled clean. Others from the party I was with stayed in the hotel a block away, paid $10.00 less but didn't get a breakfast and said their room was dingy and smelled awful of cigarette smoke with burn holes in the bedspread (of a non smoking room). They were impressed by the LaQuinta and plan on staying there on their return trip. As do I. So thank you to the staff at La Quinta in Gurnee who made my stay very pleasurable, I will be back.

  • Liked — The cleanliness & friendly staff.
  • Disliked — Nothing really.

We stayed one night here and was pleased with the hotel. The receptionist needed some better people skills but overall we foudn the hotel to be quite accomodating. The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Very nice dining area for the step up to the traditional continental breakfast. They kept the breakfast items (which were a plenty) replenished. They offered cold and hot cereals, a wide range of muffins, fruit, bagels, bread, make your own waffles, two kinds of juice, yogurt and milk. It was quite impressive. The pool was smaller than most pools I have seen at the typical hotels but still nice and they had a whirlpool as well.

  • Liked — Close to attractions and reasonably priced.
  • Disliked — The front desk clerk.

We booked two rooms; one for my parents and another for myself, husband and toddler. We requested adjoining suites on the second floor (my mother has horrible hips due to arthritis but she's also closterphobic and cannot ride in an elevator). Upon checking in, we were informed the only suites we could have next to each other were on the third floor, which means 2 flights of stairs for my mother. There was only one suite on the second floor and they do not have suites on the first floor. My parents opted for the second floor and we got the room right above them. It was a nice room, king size bed, large desk with two chairs, a pull-out loveseat and a comfy chair with ottoman. Unfortunately my parents were not as lucky because they had an outside light shining in their room which made their sleep very difficult. That light shown just above our room which didn't make for a very good night's sleep for us either.

The pool area was very nice (all windows) and the pool was clean. The light inside of the pool was floating, so it was in minor disrepair.

Breakfast was pretty typical: waffles, bagels/bread for toast, dry cereal and hard boiled eggs.

Everyone was very nice. We would stay here again because it's very convenient to the shopping and restaurants, which is why we're in Gurnee, IL, but definitely request rooms on the opposite side of the hotel or at least away from the lights in order to get a better night's sleep.

  • Liked — The pool area, the large room
  • Disliked — The highway noise, large lights shining in room at night

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2007

Stayed here while visiting Six Flags for the weekend. A perfect location, close to several restaurants and the mall, less that 5 minutes from the park. Check in was easy, the room was clean and everything in the room was in working order. We booked two rooms across from each other with was very convenient with kids. The continental breakfast was superb-fresh home made waffles, fruit, muffins, cereal and bagels, yogurt, juices and coffee. This was the perfect start for the day rather than having to go out for breakfast. My feeling is in driving around Gurnee, most of the hotels are pretty comparable. There is nothing super nice although they are building a new waterpark hotel that will be ready in March 2008. If you are going to Six Flags for the weekend, I would not hestitate in recommending this hotel. This is a typical two star hotel, as advertised.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed it. The rooms are small, especially the bathroom, but wasn't uncomfortable. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and being so close to the attractions and nice restaurants.
The pool is small, and was VERY warm. It is in a glass dome area, so the sun's constant exposure keeps it quite warm. The hot tub was unbearable, way to HOT. Kids won't notice those things, but adults will!
Vending on 2 floors was kind of annoying, but nothing that would keep me from staying there again. It was clean and smelled nice - which is important to us!!
All in all, for what we paid, I felt we got what we paid for. The service was wonderful...friendly and helpful. I think they are doing a great job, and would reccommend this place to a friend who isn't SUPER PICKY and wants a good deal in a great location.

  • Liked — Free breakfast with hot items
  • Disliked — Pool water was way to warm

I stayed here back when it was a Baymont for $60 a night and enjoyed my stay. Theyre now charging over $100 a night and it's had no upgrades. The rooms are decent, but there wasnt any fridge or microwave (for a $100+ a night room, there better be!) There were minor annoyances I must not have cought the last timeI stayed there like the Ice machines being on only 2 floors, the bathroom was tiny and cramped and there were very few channels on the TV. Its in a great location if youre going to SIx FLags (as we did), but I just dont think it's worth the money

  • Liked — Great location
  • Disliked — Not worth the money, not by a longshot
