As with all hotel properties, this one has several good as well as several negative aspects. Let's start with the good. The lobby is nice and spacious and the gazebo/pool area in the central courtyard is very nice.The hotel has only two floors and most staff were friendly and helpful. There is a basic complimentary continental breakfast each day with toast, muffins, cereal, juices, yoghurt, tea, coffee and some fresh fruit, but there are no cooked items.
I did have some issues with the property. You feel as if you are 'in the middle of nowhere' when staying here. Johnel's restaurant (large portions but mediocre food) is next door: KFC and a bowling alley are across the street along with a pizzaria. Other than that there is really nothing nearby and Hammond itself appears to be a town that prosperity passed by. Those who like to go for a walk after dinner will be disappointed by the 'down at the heels' aspect of the town. The hotel is undergoing a renovation (though I saw no work in progress) as most rooms are very tired and worn. You can hear noises from the hallway and adjoining rooms quite easily. Depending on traffic it will take 30 minutes or so to get into Chicago by personal vehicle. I would prefer a hotel which has been upgraded; has more amenities nearby and is in Chicago or a nicer suburb.
