This Hotel is very secluded place. A great place to get away an relax. It's an older resort that's been renovated. The pool and hot tub is awesome! The staff and view of Lake Michigan are off the charts.

This is a Best Western disguised as a "resort". I have stayed at roadside hotels better than this place. I will give a few positives. If you want a night in the pool, fitness and sauna and don't care about rooms and food, this is...More

Hi, My husband and I plus our 50# behaved Lab mix would like to inquire about your accommodation. We are celebrating my birthday and I thought it would be nice to visit the beach and of course the Illinois Beach State Park. We haven't been there and we are in need of some information. Since we would like to include our dog, I would like to know which accommodation is available for us. We wanted to stay in the 2nd or 3rd floor with the lake view and a balcony, if possible. I also would like to know what areas of the resort can our dog explore and if is she allowed in the State Park/beach ( we all love to hike specially her-dog). Also, do you offer any discounts around April 25-28? I found you guys from TripAdvisor and It seems a little cheaper to get it from there but I wanted to check with the resort first if you can offer a better deal. Might also be interested in bed and breakfast package. I hope to hear from you and help us plan our mini vacation. Thanks Marichelle

You will probably need to rent a car. The regional train, METRA, runs to Zion which is close to the conference center, but there is no car rental available at the train station. It's a little over an hour by train, but it... More
