This is a great spot for anyone looking to enjoy the park and lake but not camp or pay a ton. The lakeside location is fantastic with easy access to the trails in the park. The service and restaurant are on the slow side but decent (don't recommend ordering the steak, however). That said, this is an older property that...

This was our second visit to Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center for a class reunion. The accommodations were very nice with spacious rooms that have been recently remodeled. There are plenty of amenities with a pool and work out room, but we did not use them. The miles of beautiful beach along Lake Michigan make this a wonderful relaxing...

We were looking forward to a quiet getaway on Lake Michigan and were completely let down on driving into the property. I knew this was an older facility, but was not expecting the terrible disrepair and dirtiness of the property. Newly remodeled this was not. It might have had new wallpaper and such, but it was certainly not remodeled. And...

We stayed at the Illinois Beach Resort as our "Christmas in the Summer" so we had 16 people in our party from 6-73. Living where we do, we knew the beachs on Lake Michigan were questionable this year, our own beaches have been lost due to higher water levels in Lake Michigan so this wasn't a surprise. We were surprised...

My wife, daughter and I had a recent 5-day stay here during the peak summer season. We often include national or state park lodges in our vacations, so it made sense to visit Illinois Beach Resort at Illinois Beach State Park. I am reviewing this as a state park lodge and not as a “resort”, because this is very much...

We spent one night at the Illinois Beach Resort to visit a friend who was there for their family reunion. It looks like they are currently renovating, but the renovations had not made it to the 3rd floor yet. The rooms smelled a bit strange and frankly weren't the cleanest, but it had a Keurig coffee maker and the bathroom...

We came here mainly because of the beach because the picture looked like the Lake Michigan beaches, however there is literally no space on the beach and there is almost no sand. Only rocks. Room also was outdated and in very bad condition plus for the whopping 200 I paid for a room, totally not worth it. If you are...

Thanks again for a great stay. Charm of an older resort, but all great updates. Fabulous new bed, beautifull new shower. Work out and pool facilities awesome and clean. Food was spectacular. Will recommend to many.

Rooms were mediocre at best. Sink detaching from the wall. No mini frig. No microwave. Wanted to go somewhere to stay(park the car and not have to leave for a few days).

This is a very nice place and location but because of loud noises, you just cannot sleep there. There were constant weddings and parties there on both nights that I stayed with very loud music and noise until midnight. I tried to drown it out with my tv and iPhone sounds but could not do it.
