we cancelled another reservation to extend our stay. the rooms were large and clean; the service was excellent and the breakfasts better than we've experienced elsewhere. it is also close to the Interstate yet the traffic noise is minimal. if in the area again, this will be our choice of accommodations,

No frills accommodation providing a comfortable stay. Check-in and check-out was efficient although we came in a sizeable group. It was convenient that my room came with a kitchenette including a microwave oven. I like that they have an indoor pool and a decent breakfast is included. There's yoghurt, breads, eggs, usual meats like sausage, cereal, juice. What more can...

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Spacious rooms, very hygienic. Beds are really good and WIFI functions very will without extra charge. Make sure however to ask for a room away from the highway: the hotel is perfectly located near the interstate, but for that you pay the price of noise. Unfortunately no bar or restaurant: you can walk across the...

Thank you for sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor Community. The staff is always delighted to make your acquaintance. Although the interstate is rather convenient for travel, it can be distracting. We do provide ear plugs and sound machines for our light sleepers. The breakfast does have fresh cut fruit, yogurt, oatmeal with topping options and healthy cereals as well...

Wonderful hotel, great breakfast, large room with kitchen that was spotless. The lobby provided a nice meet and greet area that we used to connect with some old friends. The hotel is easily accessible from the main highway with easy access to some great local restaurants and night life.

A reunion is such a special time to connect with friends and family that you don't usually get to see. It is also a joy for the hotel team to see people gathering in the lobby sharing stories and hearing laughter! Thank you for choosing us for this special occasion. Maybe we will see you every year for a reunion?...

Since the Deerpath has closed for renovations, we've been staying in Vernon Hills when visiting Lake Forest. So when our favored hotel was booked, we reserved rooms at the Residence Inn with admittedly low expectations. We were pleasantly surprised! The room was accommodating and the small kitchen was wasted on us, but the bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom enormous....

Very good breakfast food. Service was excellent. Rooms near highway are a big loud. Ask for room away from road to cut down on noise. Rooms are nicely decorated and fairly spacious. Housekeeping did their job consistently well over a one-week stay.
