“Very Nice Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

This hotel was exactly what I was looking for. No frills, meticulously clean and close to the events I had going on. As a Holiday Inn Express you don't expect the high end amenities, but I will say this room was absolutely spotless, the employees were very pleasant and the entire stay was very nice.

The breakfast can be hit and miss. The first day it was scrambled eggs and bacon, biscuits, gravy, etc. It was very good. However, the next morning the scrambled eggs were replaced by a cheese omlet looking thing that actually crunched when I bit in. The bacon was replaced by a nasty looking sausage.

But that did not disuade me from giving this a 5-star ranking.

I was surprised to see that the hotel and an extensive warm breakfast. I've seen just a waffle maker and that's it but they had eggs, bacon and very warm cinnabuns in addition to all the staples like cereal, drinks, bagels, toast etc. The beds and sheets were comfortable. The pool and hot tub was clean. This hotel is not too old so it is to be expected. I would consider staying here with kids or on business. We stayed with the kids while our floors were getting refinished. Holiday Inn has improved a lot over the years.

!st time at this hotel and found it to be very good. Clean well maintained with friendly staff.
Depending on your reason for visiting it is a long way outside of Chicago Downtown but is in a lovely area with State Parks within a short drive.
All new digital tv with numerous channels and for Sports fans (Like me) both CSN and NBCSports which gives fabolous coverage of local teams.

I had a room right next to the pool and it was lovely, my only complaint is the heat works a little to well. The buffet breakfast was okay but the staff were extremely friendly!

We had to stay for an extended period.
What struck us first was the feeling of each staff member that they felt proud to be a part of a good team. Each of them wanted to go an extra step or two to make the situation the best it could be.
We had special needs due to allergies, and they made every accommodation to make us comfortable.
The breakfast room was cheerfully and carefully tended by Olga, who took pride in her work and kept the shelves well supplied. Desk staff and management people were often checking in to see that customers had everything they needed.
The location is convenient to Barrington and other Northwest suburbs. Several families in the computer area reported that they were repeat guests because they could visit local relatives after a good breakfast here.
Several athletic teams stayed here, which made for early, quiet nights.
Both managers were understanding and eager to help each special need, always with a real smile.
