This is NOT your typical Motel 6. Very nice remodeled building, spacious rooms, new bathrooms and very comfy! Coffee 24/7 in the lobby (no in room coffee makers and service). No continental breakfast, but it is next door to a Dunkin Donuts. Quite nice for the price!

It should be.....dang....get a rag or hire a cleaning company please. Talk about a swipe around the edges for cleaning...even the elevator hadn’t been wiped down in ages....Its really kinda a dirty place, they need to trash the mattresses and get new, stains aren’t good. 1990's TV's mounted at an angle on top of the closet? Really?
Don’t even think the pictures here are anything like it is!....Maybe the day it was built.
I promise to never be cheap again!...Good thing was only there 5 hours! (Just sleep fast and you will be ok!)
We are trying every Hotel in the De Kalb/Sycamore area....... Wow build a clean hotel around this area and you will clean up and make some $

Sold our house very quickly but had another week at work. This hotel had a washer/dryer, accepted animals but was very clean. Value included a continental breakfast that was OK but the staff were very kind to my 10 year old son and to my dog. I have not had that service in a long time. Comfort Inn and Suites may have a pool in Sycamore but their customer service is horrible. Service made the difference here. Thanks Arnold and Pam R.!!!

I would not advise anyone to stay here. I checked in at 5:15 and was checked out by 6:00. When I got into my suite everything seemed fine until I pulled the blankets back from the bed. I found multiple holes and stains through the blankets and sheet. I lifted up the pillows and there were used pillow cases under the pilllows with hair all over them. I noticed dark spots under the fitted sheet so I pulled that off. The dark spots under there were blood stains all over the matress cover. When the girl from the front desk came to my room she did not seem suprised at all. She acted as if my complaint was an everyday complaint. If you still decide to book a room at this hotel best of luck.

My husband's company Christmas party was over an hour away from our home. So, we booked this hotel on line so we didn't have to drive home that night. Since we were only going to basically check in and crash, we didn't invest our usual $100 plus on another hotel in the area. We didn't expect much and even laughed with our friends that nite, "for $59, hope there is a bed in the room". Well, we were pleasantly surprised to find a very clean and nice lobby. There was a very friendly woman at the desk who checked us in. It was 1 a.m. ----The lobby and foyer of the hotel were very nicely decorated for Christmas. Every hallway and elevator were also very clean. Our room was small but very clean. We are also used to suites so we may not be the best judge. Nice size bed and it was comfortable (no backache the next day). Room had a nice and quiet heating and cooling system. Also had a nice size window with a window seat (very cute) Very clean bathroom. Quality TV, several channels.
My husband called for pizza delivery at 1:30. He had not trouble finding pop / soda and ice to go with in hotel. Pizza was good! College town, had to be, right? We had a nice breakfast the next morning at the complimentary breafast bar and talked with others who also seemed happy with their stay. They had coffee, cereal, oj, donuts and fruit. Maybe more, we didn't look. Easy check out.
All for about 60 bucks.

If we're in Dekalb or Sycamore for an overnight stay again, we won't even call the higher priced hotels, we'll go back to this one.
