Really nice hotel, our stay was great! Lots of bright colors, the hallways were yellow

it was fun & cheery The breakfast was very good, lots of choices and 12pm check-out is the best! The pool is pretty tiny but we had our two young children with us and no one was ever in it, so it was perfect for us We spent everyday of our trip in it and the hot tub Everything was clean and the front desk people were very helpful Had a nice stay, thank you!


I’ve had great staff experience in the last 3 years I been coming to this hotel Didn’t have that experience this time, looks like a newer staff Was very short, not professional kind of like I was a friend to her, casual carefree attitude

Was checking me in but conversing with guests waiting behind me but not me Not up to the Marriott standard

Rue Wei

I didn’t sleep well because I can hear people talking and music playing through the wall I didn’t get to enjoy the breakfast because the breakfast time starts too late I hope the breakfast time starts earlier like 5am or at least have other options out for guests

I checked out the hotel and waited in the lobby for about ten minutes waiting for my ride When I got on the car, the manager came out stared at me intensely When we rolled down the window he told me that he thought I just walked passed him without checking out Super creepy

Not horrible, but far from good My room was dirty when I checked in, stains all over in the bathroom Hot tub had a black film floating in it

Part of the ceiling was missing in the pool room From the look of it for a long time Staff was nice and the breakfast was better than the average hotel All and all for the cheap price its not bad

Angela Faubion

First room that I was given hadn’t been cleaned since the previous guest left Second room was better but not by much The soap had been placed on a dirty soap dish that wasn’t wiped off

I noticed dirty wet towels behind a door as I was leaving in the morning that didn’t belong to me I told the staff but they didn’t care The pool was green & the chlorine was so strong that you could smell it from the hotel desk When entering the pool room, I had to leave right away because the chlorine burned my eyes I will never stay at this location again! Hotel is GROSS!!

Jason Sethre

Stayed there last night Hotel wreaked of Marijuana everywhere in the building Went down to workout in the exercise room at 5:30 am, no towels

Went to front desk to get towels Lobby had the worst pot smell of anywhere in the building We talked to friends of ours, who also stayed in the hotel that night The pot smell was so strong that all of us could smell it in our rooms throughout the night This hotel has a weed issue We won’t be staying there again

Feedback From Real Customers


I spent about a month in the hotel on business The staff and housekeeping services are pretty solid I was able to get my room reliably cleaned every week and get a paper from downstairs on the local news

Coffee is available 24 hours, its pretty decent The room had awesome heating, plenty of space and a comfortable bed The gym has a few treadmills, a bike and elliptical and a dumbbell set, yoga mats – all you need to get a good work out inThe hotel does an evening social once a week where they’ve got free beer and snacks which is cool and encouraging I haven’t come across many places that do this but its a great way to network and interact with people especially in times of COVIDThe biggest complaints would be the inconsistently of the room keys, if you can get the app – use it because you’ll find yourself losing the ability to go into the gym, laundry room, pool or even your own room at the drop of a dime The breakfast is edible as long as you stay away from the powdered eggs

Tom Johns

Solid choice for north suburban stays They do one weird thing though , I’ve observed it during every stay in 2022, which is that between 0715 and 1000 each day but especially on weekends, they’ll entirely clean the lobby bathrooms, tiles in front of bathrooms, and even tile floors of first floor exit areas with really slick floor detergent But this is exactly the time of highest foot traffic in all these areas

I’ve witnessed grandmas nearly spill their breakfast coffee trying to maneuver into and out of those bathrooms because it’s like ice I thought it was because staff to do this only worked mornings, but that turns out not to be the case, the same individual creating local slip & slides is still working at 1530 Clean up of these areas should really occur only after 10:30 or so, it isn’t safe unless you’re barefoot and even then I doubt it

Jerry Inderlee

My girlfriend and I spent almost 6 months here and really miss the wonderful staff, the beautiful room, and the way they made us feel right at homeThe front desk, maintenance, kitchen, and environmental services were 10 out of 10!My girlfriend wants to move back lol!Thank you for everything you did for us!

Mike Underhill

The lobby is nice, everything is clean Bed was comfy Maintenance was good

Hot breakfast and pool good I gave it three stars because the bathroom was so small you can’t even close the door while you’re sitting on the toilet The depth of the bathroom is the width of the tub Should be just a shower if that’s all the space they had Also explains why their website shows no bathroom pics None If you don’t mind that, you will like the room

Noah Lemke

Hotel is nice and pool is nice and breakfast is awesome here, This hotel only got 2 stars because of the pool and breakfast! But stayed here back in Jan for the ice castles and the front desk group are unbearable and rude, simply asking about a room rate that was promised to my girlfriend was too much Than her family stays here because they had a fire at there house and just because they asked for towels and the room to be cleaned they get kicked out! I understand the whole Covid thing but seriously that has been over for a while now and it doesn’t give you the right to be rude and threaten to call the cops! I won’t stay here again nor will anyone I know plus my girlfriends family will probably tell everyone not to stay here til a change is made at the desk When will hotels go back to being corporate ran? Cause that’s the only way it needs to be this independent owners don’t care about the people staying at there hotels nor do they care about the service there team is providing!

Shannon McCloskey

We happily got married and when we got to the hotel it wasn’t until 10ish pm at night on our Wedding day When we walked in there were pop can stains on the counters, sticky stains, trash from other people before us underthe couch, and worse of all there was a nasty stain on the top blanket Other than the lack of cleanliness the friendliness of country inn is wonderful and warming

We were so tired and kept going in and out of the room between our house, celebrating, and then back to the hotel so we weren’t in the room all too long I would’ve said something the first night or the next morning when we first came but I was just so worn out from the wedding I didn’t wish to complain Otherwise it was a decent room I just wish it wasn’t so dirty because out of all moments I wish it didn’t happen to us on our special night

Especially appreciate the dog-friendly policy Very welcoming to visitors traveling with pets Location is convenient to many downtown destinations

Adjacent ground level parking lot Staff helpful and polite Common areas were clean and pleasant My only complaint is that we were not notified upon check-in that we needed to request housekeeping services, so we were disappointed to return from a day of sightseeing to a room which had not been cleaned

Stacey M

I would not recommend a stay here, primarily due to rude and incompetent staff We had to get our keys reprogrammed each day as 3 different employees seemed to only know how to program them until 1:00 pm

the next day They then lied to us that we must have been putting the cards next to our phones Both cards held by different people stopped working at the same time with each set we got And neither was keeping the card anywhere near their phones We then encountered people in the elevator that had to the same thing happen to them each day, and also encountered rude staffThis hotel is listed as a “plus”, but does not include the basics They do not have a complimentary breakfast, there is not a microwave in most rooms, a safe was in the location above the fridge where the microwave should have been This was extremely inconvenient, and added extra costs on an already quite expensive hotel nightly rateVery disappointed

lady cadbury

The room was nice love the tiny kitchenette and the bedroom being separate but, that’s where the fun ends I spent two nights and it cost me over 60000 which is way more then I could afford but it was our anniversary

Restaurant is way overpriced for the food I ordered room service got two drinks, a burger, a dinner with a very small piece of meatloaf, two oysters, 4 bite sized donuts with cold chocolate syrup and two deviled eggs, they charged me 17000 I didn’t even get the fries that was supposed to come with the burger What’s worse is the food was cold The hotel charged 1200 a day for parking I was told nothing about being charged for parking when I checked in Got a few drinks at the bar drinks were between 1000-2000 each It was 1000 just for a shot They didn’t even give you a receipt so you could at least see what you were getting charged for The man that works overnight is very eude I was trying to ask questions he kept walking away not listening and kept saying theywill help you when you check out I wanted a detailed receipt of everything we got charged but all he said is when you check out I mean that’s fine I can wait till I check out it’s the tone of voice and the way he acted

WARNING- Food safety procedures at the breakfast bar are not safeOverall the hotel was fine Rooms were clean

Ate breakfast from the hot table on the breakfast bar and within 2 hours I was HORRIBLY sick Manager insisted that nobody else had complained Talked to someone else who had stayed at the hotel and eaten the same thing but left town that day and they had also gotten sick when they got home Of course the manager isn’t going to tell you that others complained when someone gets sick on their watchThe price is fine and for the most part the hotel is clean I wouldn’t roll the dice with the hot breakfast anymore

Rachel Bounds

We stay here often They are reasonably priced Rooms are always clean and comfortable

Staff is friendly I just got stranded on a flight in another state They refunded my money 100% two days after I was suppose to have stayed with them, even though I had not canceled in advance This Quality Inn and Suites will continue to get my business!

Crystal Sharp

Hotel room is huge! Nice warm pool and huge hot tub! Adults only in pool from 10pm-12am! I’ve never heard of a pool being open so late! There is a secret passage way to a bar/restaurant off the second floor There are arcade games, pool, darts, ax throwing (to come), and a bowling alley! Couldn’t ask for much more to keep the teens entertained

chelsey carroll

We stayed there last Saturday for my daughters birthday When we arrived we were told the water slide was out of order ( one of the reasons we decided to stay there) Then we tried to go bowling and there was bowling tournaments going on all day

So we decided to go to the arcade and eat dinner No food available and only a few games worked I booked this stay in advance and was never sent an email or anything stating these issues It was really fun having to disappoint a group of kids that were looking forward to the things that the hotel was said to offer Please update your website to show accurate accommodations

Krystal Tranby

We really enjoyed our stay while here for Back to the Fifties The reason I give 2 stars for service has nothing to do with the staff All staff was friendly but they no longer clean the rooms which is apparently because of COVID but this means you have to go to the front desk for garbage bags, clean towels etc

Also the waterslide was out of order while we were there but they do have that stated clearly on the website The attached restaurant had good food but was dealing with staffing issues Several members of our party enjoyed the bowling alley one evening It was reasonably priced and they could bowl all they wanted until 10:00PM We will try them again for Btt50s next year and I will update my review at that time!

When we arrived at the hotel around 11:30 pm, we walked through the front doors to check in and were hit by the distinct smell of marijuana When we got into our room and took a shower, we noticed boogers on our shower curtain However, we were impressed with the heating and cooling unit and it worked very well! Overall, a decent place to stay if you don’t mind those minor issues

Phoua Lor

I stayed here for a couple of nights and was not reimbursed the charge on my card until over 2 weeks later when I had to call them about my issue I was promptly refunded the money by the general manager upon calling 17 days after my stay, but it is upsetting that this action had not been taken as soon as I checked out of the hotel – as it should have been

robert robb

Room was clean, reasonably priced and friendly helpful staff Only had 1 problem but I didn’t bring it up to try to remedy it Junior hockey! Their kids hyped up about a game and at a motel with long hallways pools and an elevator or 3

I work over nights usually a 14 hour shift, during the week the place is pretty quiet Friday and Saturday nights during hockey season not so much If you want sleep during the day haha not gonna happen There is signs about kids running in the halls that says don’t do it But they had hockey goals set up in the hallways and running slamming into doors etc Forget about catching the elevator when their staying there Again I didn’t complain to anyone just kinda cranked up my headphones and tried my best to sleep I will be staying many more times though Nice pool area, gameroom, weights, laundry free breakfast Heading there this afternoon, hopefully no hockey

Joe Haupt

We would have rated the hotel five stars if it had not been for the noise problem with our room Our room was attractive and clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast bar very good However, the occupants in the room above us were excessively noisy for most of our 6-night stay

We talked to the front desk twice during our visit about the noise problem It sounded like there were children running constantly back and forth in their room or jumping up and down on the floor (it appeared that they spent most of their time each day in their room) The hotel staff did get the noise problem taken care of after 10 pm each night with the start of the hotel’s quiet time Oh but before 10 pm, you couldn’t fall asleep due to the thumping and running noise from above On the last night of our stay, we had an extra interruption to our sleep from a barking dog The hotel is pet friendly and allows dogs We were woken up twice by the woofing of a large dog

corky dile

Good/clean beds and rooms, breakfast and workout room were highlights Area around hotel is safe and nice (grocery and restaurant across the parking lot) Front desk was helpful with providing cooking surface and pan Housekeeping was awesome

Had an issue with a room across the hall screaming all night because they were maybe 21 (I think they were 19-20) and it was their birthday (I know this because it was screamed multiple times and when asked to quiet down they responded with “but it’s my birthday”) Im guessing locals got a hotel room to party all night We called the desk twice roughy and hour apart about the noise we could hear everything( screaming, obscenities, arguing) with our door shut down the hall They knew exactly who I was taking about so I’m guessing we weren’t the only ones complaining at 2am We can deal with a little noise understanding it’s a hotel but was not expecting a local drunken party They sent security up and he didn’t really do anything about it just told them there were noise complaints and he was in a rough spot cause his boss wanted the noise to stop but that he understood They proceeded to yell the F word for the next 5 mins threatening to fight people and they just wanted to party Security heard all of this and left so that told us everything we needed to know about the support we would get, so we just stopped calling and got very little sleep that night thankfully it was only 1 night of our 3 night stay It’s a nice hotel besides that and maybe we just got unlucky, but hotel could have done something We will be trying a different hotel for our trips in the future

katherine pellegrino

Similar complaint to the below comment We had been driving for 13 hours only to arrive to an extremely rude and combative employee who had informed us that our reservation had been canceled When asked why he mentioned something along the lines of a “daily audit” and if you arrive after midnight your reservation was canceled and we had to figure out another situation

NOWHERE on the site or on the premise was that policy stated I asked if there was anything that he could do, such as rebook, and he responded that he couldn’t help us and we needed to go somewhere else Fortunately the property right next door had availability and was able to giveus a bed to rest until another 10 hour travel day The next morning I went back to the property and was able to speak with the assistant GM, Brittany, who was a wonderful face of the company and extremely respectful She profusely apologized and refunded the stay that was charged Please get rid of the nightshift employee who is lazy and an zero value-add employee I understand it was a single employee in the wrong but gives me a bad perception of the Hilton brand as a whole and less inclined to book at any of their properties moving forward

Wonderful staff; amazing food; beautiful venue!The Outing Lodge hosted our engagement photo session and, more importantly, our October 2021 wedding The venue was everything we wanted for a rustic, fall wedding The guests adored the staff

The food was delicious! Sofia worked with us for over 11 months to plan the day The unique things about this venue are the charm of the lodge, the proximity to hiking and biking trails, and the package deal with ceremony, reception, 7 rooms for guests overnight, food and dessert all taken care of by the lodge Thank you to the Outing Lodge staff for the best day!


Very pleasant owners Location wonderful Lodge is old, certainly historical and has it’s charm

It needs serious repair, restoration, including furniture, bathrooms, lighting windows, a/c, beds, fans need rebalance, sunroom door in rm 3 needs to have a whole new door system to close properly etc Give this lodge the TLC it deserves for all the years it served many who lived there

Kristy Deeds

The photos on social media really don’t do justice to how cozy and beautiful this property is Our room was so comfortable and had plenty of amenities We loved the amount of wildlife in the area, the lake and the gardens were gorgeous

Breakfast was wonderful and the laid back atmosphere was perfect We would absolutely stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here and had the king suite in room 228 on 8/12/22-8/14/22 We checked on that Friday 8/12 and went out on the town Upon our return, we got ready for bed, only to notice crunched up chips all over our sheets in our bed

I went down to the front desk and was given a whole set of new sheets my wife and I put on ourselves Omar, the gentleman working took note of our issue and stated we had to call back on Monday and speak with the managerI called back and spoke with Rose, the manager, and she said all she could offer was a $30 discount I explained I did not think that was reasonable that I paid $500 for a 2 night stay in which I had to change my own sheets, on top of having the icky feeling our room wasn’t even cleaned She was very rude, after asking who else I could speak with She said it was just her and hung up the phone DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

KJ Goldstein

The king jacuzzi suit exceeded my expectations My only complaint was that the room was about 58° when we got there Good thing there was a fireplace! And the direct TV was somehow not connected

We had to jiggle and fiddle with everything, but got it workingHighly recommend staying here for a quick getaway


Specifically,wanted to use thehot tub** asked them prior to, and during

that it was in”Proper working order”I went down the first time and I told her it was “cold” and she checked ,and she said it was 93° and by the time I left it was up to 96°degrees”Not acceptable”The room was okay,but the shower/tub drain didn’t work

Mrs. B

We decided to spend our anniversary here as this is where we spent our honeymoon 5 years ago and still love it! The staff are very nice, it’s always clean, pool is nice and is 3-5 feet so not very deep but enough to swim laps or just lounge in The price seems reasonable to us, as we paid $163 for our suite for the night It’s nice to have the roof top restaurant attached!We always get the suites with the hot tub that has a fire place, king bed, stand up shower, and lots of towels

We would highly recommend them and will be going back again

MIsty Alford

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions The times before were good This time the hotel was wild and quite the party atmosphere

It was so loud outside our rooms until after midnight Definitely do not stay on the ground floor if you are wanting to sleep at any point The other room we had on the second floor wasn’t much better We understand people having a good time but this was outrageous When management was asked about it, he politely replied there wasn’t anything that could be done and the bar stayed open until 2AM This will be our last stay at this facility

Shayne E

We were in town for some concrete pump training and stayed at this facility Nicest Best Western I have ever stayed The owner would personally greet us at dinner to make sure we were enjoying our stay

The restaurant bar inside the hotel was lively and had incredible food Try the prime rib it was delicious! We had a large group and our server, who I believe was Eddie, was very attentive and kept the drinks flowing This is why I can’t remember his name for sure! Great stay

It’s in a nice area and only an 8 minute drive from a family members house We have stayed twice for medical appointments for our kids The pool is super cold

The rooms are definitely in need of some TLC They are currently remodeling so I’m sure it will get better The first time we stayed the room was very clean but the second time the room was visibly not cleaned in a few spots and the duvet cover and was stained The breakfast was decent both times We stayed with all 4 of our young children and it’s nice to have options for breakfast that each of them likeWe would consider staying again after the remodel but will be finding another hotel in the meantime

Currently under renovation, but you wouldn’t know before 7:30 any morningStaff was super helpfulProperty inside & out both are very well keptRoom is great, plenty of space, including a desk, seating area, coat hooks as well

The shower & bath are goodRoom has plenty of charging locations, and plenty of lightingThe blackout shade does the job perfectlyI’ve worked in the area many times, but this is my 1st stay wish I’d known before now about this gem!

To the ones who rely so heavily on reviews before making a decision: As an avid user of Holiday Inn I was somewhat skeptical when reading the reviews of this hotel on google but decided to bet on this location knowing it was a corporate owned location While I have allotted for grace of the construction being completed in this review I feel like there are several areas as room for improvement to take this from a 25-3 star hotel and bring it to the high 4 if not 5

The first this was the cleanliness in ALL common areas of hotel the hallways, breakfast areas were never cleaned during our 4 day stay This is something so easily fixed yet no one took the time to do it At one point there was dried blood on the floor in the breakfast area which again to my horror was not cleaned during our stay The next area is the elevator- the way the elevator functioned was unacceptable with catching- it was almost scarier to take the elevator vs the stairs The cleanliness of elevator was nothing short of terrible sticky mess, handprints, visible dirt debris all days of the stay Again I know there was construction but there’s no reason that staff can not clean and mop the elevator at MINIMUM once a day The next was the noise level With the guests that were there during out stay the noise level and “rowdiness” gauge was off the charts It seemed like the staff either made no attempt to stop it or just didn’t care to Either way nighttime was dreaded especially since I was traveling with 2 little kids The other final area of improvement I would suggest is keeping a much closer eye of the freshness of the food During our stay on 7/7 we got some milk with a 7/8 expiration date Upon opening it we quickly realized it was sour and threw it away Yet on 7/8 when we came back downstairs much to my surprise all the milk with the 7/8 expiration date on it was still out When bringing it to staff attention staff notified me that they technically have 5 days AFTER the expiration date to keep it out for consumption YIKES Never have I heard of that and if that truly is the policy it is only opening the door for a food poisoning lawsuit at fault of the hotelWhen it comes to the question of would I stay here again the answer would have to be probably not There’s other options right across the street that I’d be willing to explore before coming backPros:LocationCons:Room Cleanliness, Facilities, Atmosphere

The hotel looks very nice Aside from a few housekeeping issues such as a dirty shower floor the rooms were ok Our pull out had no sheets, pillows, blankets

We had to ask for them and all we received was a blanket that was just placed on the front desk for us yo have to pick up The first night was one of the worst nights sleep I have ever had There was a group partying next door to us Loud music, yelling, slamming doors, etc We called the front desk and they “warned” them I called a 2nd time and the front desk wouldn’t answer when I called on the room phone so I called with my cell phone They “warned” them again alas this party was not going to stop and they were still at it at 2:30 am When I asked the front desk about it in the morning I was met with contention My suggestion if you have an issue with noise complaints don’t even bother with the front desk just call the cops The workers here are useless The breakfast wad also less than to be desired They have toasters with cream cheese and butter but only offered pre wrapped muffins What a joke

Alison Tisdell

The service was extremely poor The staff was not knowledgeable about any questions we had We had reserved a double queen room and were put in a single king room

This does not work when we have children with us The light socket in our room had prongs from a cord stuck in it The doors didn’t close all the way They held over $1100 on my card while we were there When we asked for clean towels for our room they were left sitting on the dirty hallway floor instead of put in our room I will never be staying at this hotel again

I am not sure what all the other bad ratings are about, We loved our stay! We checked into this hotel without a reservation, because another hotel in the area that we had checked into earlier in the day was absolutely horrendous and we just couldn’t stay there From the first moment of stepping into the lobby, it looks great It’s a new hotel, and you can tell

The checkin was easy, our room was clean and comfortable! The bathroom was clean and had a beautiful sink and shower, and it had great lighting to put makeup on The carpet in the room was clean Carpet in hotels are always so gross to me, but this was the first hotel I felt like I could walk around the room barefootThe coffee and continental breakfast in the morning was a perfect end to our stayI would recommend this hotel!

This is a newer property and it wasn’t bad I think my biggest disappointment was the quality of the workmanship in the room The shower handle wasn’t properly mounted in the bathroom, the trim work and wallpaper work was a bit shoddy

I used one of my suite night upgrades and the room that I got really wasn’t much of an upgrade There was a small chair in the corner There was no sofa or coffee table and really wasn’t any place to just sit and relax in the room The hotel staff said that there was a hot buffet for breakfast in the morning which is rather misleading It was nothing more than microwave breakfast sandwiches and eggs

Are you a person who loves good Tik Tok lighting? This is the stop for you I couldn’t get over the lighting in the bathroom! Mind you, I’m an older millennial… I don’t Tik Tok, But I know a good number of your potential future guess probably do We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was, the shower was tiled very nicely with a nice chevron pattern

NETFLIX?!!! Obviously you need your own account, but the access was perfect for a rowdy toddler The breakfast the next morning was amazing… you could tell that they actually put some effort into their scrambled eggs I didn’t need to use salt or pepper They also had packaged breakfast sandwiches already made… Also the waffle maker… Probably my favorite hotel breakfast that I have come across I mean, I’ve never stayed at the Waldorf Astoria or anything like that… But I sure felt like it at this place Definitely our go to place, Since we moved up by Canada, and come down to the cities here and there The only thing was annoying was that this actual hotel doesn’t show up on the main website… So I had to booked through Expedia Great spot!
