Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center

Reviewed 6 September 2012

I was pleased with our room. It was clean and comfortable. I loved the bed; I haven't slept that well in a hotel in a long time. I did, however, think that a continental breakfast buffet could have been offered free of charge.

Room Tip: Our first floor room had easy access to the pool.

This hotel was just Ok, nothing to write home about. The rooms were just your average hotel room,.. Nothing stood out about this place.

This hotel is in a great location to Gurnee Shopping Mall, Great America Six Flags. They also have shuttle vans that will take you within 5miles to any place around the hotel..

I would likt to thank all of the staff at the Holiday Inn for treating my family & myself so caring. The minute we walked in they were so nice to us. I felt right away like home. We had an issue in our suite with one of the air conditioning units, call them and they solved the situation right away. Our suite was very clean & confortable.All during our stay, we were treating very good, always asking us if we needed anything, and when we did, they made sure we got it. one of the girls,(I think her name was precious) was so nice & respectful to me. I aprreciated it so much and also your shuttle drivers were the best. The never had an attitude about having to dop off or pick up people. I was kind of sad that the hot tub was out because I was looking forward to that, but maybe next time for i will be coming back. I really needed this mini vacation with all the stress I have been thru with my son's anniversary of his death coming up and you made me feel really special. Thank you so much for an enjoyable weekend and may God Bless each & every one of you. Sincerely, Isabel Escobedo & family

Room Tip: Suites are confortable & clean

Holiday Inn Gurnee Convention Center had some of the nicest people working on staff that ive ever witnessed. Everyone wanted to help and had a smile on their face. The rooms are nice too...spacious bathrooms, comfortable beds. We utilized the shuttle service that was offered as well, which was a very convenient serice.

Stayed there when it was the Holiday Inn before, and when it turned to Vista. Both of them dumps. This place..........amazing. Total change. I would recomend it in a heatbeat to anyonone. The reaustrant was delicius. Room was clean and huge. We had a problem with the AC that was fixed within 30 miniutes. No bad on the hotel, but I grabbed the utility man in the hall and he dropped what he was doing to take care of us. Never got his name but thank you. We drive from Kankakee 4 times a year to go to Six Flags. We will be there in October for Fright Fest. See you then.

Room Tip: I would recommend the suite. Good size. Good value.

This hotel was super clean with a wonderful and helpful staff, convenient to shopping, SixFlags, and freeway access. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. The hallways smelled fresh, the carpet and wallcoverings were all new. Just a great place that really beat our expectations for the price.

Stopped here on business 04 - 10 Aug 12. Hotel is clean and staff are friendly and helpful
Buffet breakfast is ok but at $9.99 per person could get expensive for a family.
The hotel has been remodeled and has a decent bar and a restaurant although I never saw anybody dining in it while I was there.
Very well located for Gurnee Mills shopping mall and Six Flags amusement park - the hotel offers a free shuttle service.
Nearby dining includes Lonestar steakhouse, Chillis, Rainforest Cafe, Outback Steakhouse and TGI Fridays (shuttle will take you to any of them)
One word of advice - If crossing West Grand Avenue to dine or shop be VERY careful - road is 6 lanes, very busy and there is no crosswalk, would not attempt to cross with children, best to drive or ask the shuttle to take you.

Room Tip: Ask for a 'suite' has separate bedroom and is good value
