Motel 6 Chicago Northwest Palatine
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Palatine
Reviewed 30 August 2012

We were here for a nite and it was well worth the stop. The rooms were a little small but they were so clean, comfortable beds/pillows and we were off the road and didnt have any noise from the road.

I would make Motel 6 a definite place to stay when away from home.
Friendly employees too.

Room Tip: Some locations dont have king size beds, so make sure when making reservations. Some locations accep...

The customer service is the worst I've ever encountered. We ran out of toilet paper and were told we would have to wait until morning. When I explained we had NONE, the clerk acted like she was doing me a favor by going to the housekeeping closet to get a roll for me.

We had gone out for the day and housekeeping took that opportunity to go through my sisters bags and took all the cash she had in her suitcase. Management refused to assist in filing a claim saying they were not responsible and accused me of taking it since I left a week early. Why would I leave her money for food and necessities and then take it?

Staff members do not wear uniforms as the other locations do so you can't distinguish who works there and who is a guest.

There are no screens on the windows so you can't open a window for fresh air. I will NEVER stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room at Holiday Inn, at least you'd have a pool and trustworthy staff.

I had a HORRIBLE experience here. Kiki Carrington is the most unprofessional, rude hotel customer service rep I have ever met in my life and I travel a lot.

I locked my key in my room and went to the front desk to get a new one. The night before when I registered I used my adopted American name but showed my driver's license and paid with a credit card that has my Korean name. When I tried to get a replacement key, since my American name was the registered room holder instead of my Korean name, Kiki was unwilling to give me a new key! I told her to double check the registration form I filled out (which has my American name) and cross reference that with the credit card I paid with the night before which was the same card I was showing her today. Needless to say I was getting annoyed and she was quite rude about the whole situation. I have never seen sooo much attitude from anyone except from Omerosa on The Apprentice.

I asked for her business card and told her I'm going to write a Yelp review about my experience. She got mad and told me I had to leave. She refunded the payment (thankfully) and was started walking me to my room. Apparently, she can't give me a duplicate key because the names don't match up but she can open the room for me so that I can take everything. Just a complete lack of common sense.

While walking to the room, my poodle shitzu puppy started jumping on her legs asking to be pet. She turned around and said that the dog has to be on a leash. I told her the leash is in the room to which she replied, "What if I kick the dog?" I'm not kidding, she really said that. I was floored and told her and I would sue her if she hurt my dog. (I would also sue the motel if their employee did that). She responded saying, "That's it! I'm calling the police." I was confused and calmly waited for the police to escort me to my room. So ridiculous. The police were very nice, helped me carry my bags and even recommended a local motel.

This whole situation was so ridiculous and over blown. Kiki Carrington should be fired immediately.

Bad hotel. Place was dirty and staff was rude. I would not stay there again. It is directly off rt 53 which was good.

Tanya was cheerful when I came to the front desk to check in and the rooms were stylish and modern. The hotel was fairly quiet as well.
