I booked this hotel based on the fact that it is so close to the race track,and is on one floor. The price was great, parking was free, as was breakfast. The room was clean and staff was friendly. I will stay here every time we go to the race track.

Great staff, nice rooms, clean rooms, cold air, very quiet. While I didn't have time to use the pool, it looked beautiful.. My dog loved the woods out back. Lots of places to eat nearby. And, best of all when I arrived early, and was able to check in immediately.

I stayed here one night while driving cross country - it is a basic motel in a small midwestern town. There is a fast food restaurant next door ( I forget which, maybe Burgerking?) The room was clean, the linens fresh and clean. A small fridge in the room was handy. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. There is... More

I chose the hotel purely because of its location. I used the Choice Hotels web site to make the reservation, but when you go to check in it's like pre-computer days. The room was low end with not much in the way of power plugs available. It was clean, but my carpet felt damp in bare feet. Possibly just shampooed?... More

The staff was very congenial. This is an old hotel but I enjoyed a nights stay there. room 138 was nice and quiet, just what I asked for. If your looking for a modern hotel this is not the place for you. I would stay there again no question.

Thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay with us. I am sorry about the smoking room. Many times we receive reservations from 3rd parties that are marked smoking when the guest really wanted non-smoking. It is my practice to repeat my information such as number of nights and type of room. I have been able... More

We booked this on a chance we could save money, knowing the rest of our stay in Chicago would be pricey. Not a chance I would ever try Econo Lodge again.

“Not all rooms have a fridge and microwave. You need to call the motel and ask for one of the rooms with this if you want one. Also they did not have the air on for us. It took 4 hours to cool down. I would have called ahead and asked to have it turned on before we got there.”
