The service and staff were great. The rooms were clean, spacious and had lots of windows. the only 'knock' on this hotel was it is dated in it's atruim appearnace.... like 1970's retro...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Non smoking room but someone was smoking in the hall and it permeated into our room. Smelled bad. And the ac unit was super loud when sleeping.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice hotel with a great staff"
When we drove up to the place, my wife thought, "I wish we were staying here," and then I turned in! The property is beautiful with lots to do. We actually wished we had scheduled more time to just stay around the resort, but we had planned a full day in Chicago. It's a trek to get to downtown from there, but the concierge service was a great help (thanks, […] Frank!). There was a free shuttle to and from the commuter train to Chicago. The room itself was a non-smoking room that had a vague smell of smoke to it when we first walked in, but it otherwise seemed clean. The light switch by the door didn't turn on any lights. We had a lot of fun on our first night in the indoor pool, where there is a little water slide and also a hot tub. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful hotel at bargain (summer special) price"
Lovely grounds; large, pretty rooms; great pools; very nice, helpful staff. Everything is in pretty good condition, but some of the decorating in the lobby and atrium is a little odd (too many patterns and textures on the floor - strange mixture of tile and carpet) and the large lump of faux boulders that houses a small bar in the middle of the atrium […] is just weird. A more sophisticated decor and contemporary bar would have been more appropriate. We did like all the plants and the waterfall, tho. The rooms (and baths) are, well, roomy, nicely decorated, quiet and comfy. We got a special internet rate ($79!), and were worried we'd get a "bad" room, but that wasn't the case. All-in-all, we had a very nice stay, and would stay again if we are in that area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Get more towels"
There were never enough towels for the guests. Everyone was scrounging for a towel at the pool and in the rooms. The poolside cabana was poorly managed...limited drinks available and no snacks at all were available t purchase. It was a let down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good amenities, terrible for cleanliness"
Although this hotel had a comfortable room and the food from room service was delicious, I gave it a terrible rating for cleanliness and bad service. When I arrived at the hotel, the fridge was not clean. I ordred a ginger ale because I was not feeling well, and the room service staff brought me lemaonde that was simply carbonated water. When I called […] room service to tell them them that the beverage they brought me did not taste like ginger ale, the staffperson who answered the phone chuckled like it was something funny. I explained to her that I did not think it was funny since I had an upset stomach and requested another ginger ale without any ice. However, the beverage that they brought up to my room still tasted like plain carbonated water. The next day, the coffeemaker did not work in the morning and I had to ask for a replacement before I could have my cup of coffee in the morning. The shuttle driver gave me some misinformation about the frront seat passenger having his or her seatbelt fastened not being the responsibility of the vehicle driver. The map of the area that the front desk staff provided was not accurate and updated. The thermostat stopped working on the last day I was there and their was no air conditioning in the room.

"No towels...huge family reunion"
I had stayed at this resort in the past and decided to return to celebrate our first anniversary. Unfortunately there was a very large family reunion as well as a wedding going on this weekened. The lines for everything in the hotel were long, there were no towels at the pool on both days we were there. When I asked for towels they would only give me […] 1 even though there were 4 of us there. Staff does not seem to understand and speak English very well whichis somewhat annoying to encounter in the field of hospitality. Don't think I will stay here again.

the hotel was the perfect place to reconnect with my former fiance after 29 years. The tropical indoor setting reminded us of meeting in Hawaii...great place to stay, close by to many attractions.

the room was on the basement floor with no nice view, but they changed us to a new room on the second night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The parking was terrible, the toilet kept running all night and when I told the front desk they just said they would have maintenance check, the bartenders in the different hotel bars were not consistent with their drinks, the elevators were so slow and lastly, the white blankets on both beds had dirt on them. Yuck! I won't go back there ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great except for the rude bartender at The Cave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is one of the best resorts I have been to in the Chicagolabd area. Perfect if your looking for a getaway in the winter since they have an indoor area that looks like an outside park and all of their buildings are accessible through underground hallways.Genuine Expedia guest review
"CLOSE TO OUR FIRST GRANDCHILD."
wE STAYED AT THE INDIAN LAKES RESORT IN BLOOMINGDALE IL. THE SERVICE, THE FOOD AND THE ROOM WAS FANTASTIC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great except for one problem"
We loved the hotel, thought it was in a great, safe location. The hotel itself is unique and beautiful and the employees were always friendly. My only complaint is our room did not have a dryer. Not a big problem until we had to call down three times to ask for one. We were on our way out and that was holding us up. We even attempted to as a nearby […] housekeeper for one but she understood next to zero English. After 40 minutes, someone finally brought one up for us. Otherwise, we'd stay there again.

Very cool hotel with a lot of character. Some parts were dated but the rooms were clean and updated. Plenty to do no matter the season.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not at all what I thought."
You could tell the place was rundown before you went inside. The whole hotel smelled terrible like they tried to get the smoke smell out with heavily floral scented cleaner. Check in was at 3 but we had to wait until 4:30 because our room wasn't clean. Got the the room and it didn't look very clean. Bits of stuff on the floor, stained carpet and furniture. […] Paint chipping off the walls. We had no wash rags or hand towels. Don't know why we had to wait so long because it still wasn't clean. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. The toilet ran the entire time. Also we were next to an adjoining room and could hear everything from the other room and the hallway. Very disappointed and will not be staying here ever again.

My husband and I stayed here because he had a job interview in the area and we were very surprised at this hotel. It really is a resort! We purchased it because it was on special and we are glad we did. The staff was nice and the room was great. The only complaint is that when the air kicked on it was really loud and the water in the shower was never […] really hot. Other than that it was great. We will definitely be back.

"great to use as a wedding property."
dysfunctional front desk. our daughter got married and we used this hotel. we confirmed all the details every day with the front desk and they still screwed it up. from handicapped rooms not being available to guests not having rooms available when they checked in. the rest of the house was great to work with. banquet dept. did a great job. the valets […] were the best we ever worked with. great property. management needs to work with the front of the house a bit more. we'd go there again.

"Great Hotel if you want to be in the dark and cold"
My room was on the first floor of the resort. As a result, I could hear all of the noise from guests walking throughout the lobby and hallway. Additionally, the power went out. As a result, the room was completely dark, no television, or heat all night. Power was not restored until 7am the next morning. Guests were extremely loud and irrate and made […] it very difficult to get any rest. I was extremely disappointed the first night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Could be a great family hotel"
Overall, My experience was ok. I would of rated the comfort of the room higher but the first night we had to be moved due to a faulty heating unit and the next night due to some power failure the smoke detector in our room started going off at 2:00 am for about 2 hours until they fixed it. The hotel staff was courteous and made amends as best as they […] could. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall the visit was good but we had a situation on our last night where the elevators were not working, the TV cable was not working and the Smoke Detector went off 7 times between 1am and 5am. My biggest frustration was that the staff seem very disinterested in helping with any of these issues. I had to walk to the top floor w/out an elevator. Not […] a big deal but on one to direct me on how to navigate from floor 3 to floor 5. Going w/out Cable in a hotel can be a big deal. Again, front desk seemed very unconcerned and was not interested in trying to find out when it would be restored. With smoke detector, staff was non-concerned. Very weak apology when I called to inquire. I would have expected staff to be trolling floors to let people know it was a false alarm. I heard several people actually leaving their rooms when the alarm went off. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Got to the hotel and it looked nice from the outside and the lobby. Got to the room and it looked nice until I went to close the curtains. They have a portable room air conditioner in there with the vent going through the window and pink insolation covering the window where the vent was and had duct tape holding it in. Then there was mold all down the […] wall between the windows. Then the dust on the lamps and lamp shades. Told the person at the front desk and he could care less.

We went there to celebrate our 32nd Wedding Aniiversary. Accomodations were outstanding. The staff was courteous and professional. We got a King suite, very clean, with great views. We enjoyed drinks at The Cave Bar, the bartender Melissa was very polite, then we enjoyed a lavish dinner at the Shiraz on the Water. The food was outstanding and the service […] exceptional. I enjoyed a lavish desert, back to The Cave for evening drinks. In the morning to the Mastersclub for a nice brunch which was delicious. We are looking forward to yet another stay. We decided to bring our toy poodle with us, rather than boarding him. They do charge a fee. no matter the size of the dog...that really was the only dislike. Overall, I would Highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very enjoyable stay"
My family enjoyed this hotel as used the mini golf course and both indoor and outdoor pool. The staff service at the hotel was very nice and threw in some freebies for the kids (mini golf and breakfast). Our room was a nice size with two queen beds and a portable crib. There was plenty of room for our smallest to crawl around. This was a family vacation […] to Chicago where we visited many of the museums downtown during the day. Our travel time to downtown averaged about 45mins each way (non-peak rush hour). Nearby the hotel there is a mall and plenty of restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fit our needs"
This is about the 10th time we have stayed at this hotel and I am usually very satisfied. This time I was in a new room that was about 1/2 the size of any before. It looked to me that several rooms were made out of one big room because I believe this was a very new room. I liked the size of the room in my previous stays. There was a remodel of the hotel […] itself and I believe these rooms were added...a bit disappointing because the room was really really small., Too much furniture for the room. No floor space. Bathroom was fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hilton Indian Lakes Resort review"
Hotel is nice, room is cozy. I like the bedding soft and lots of pillow which feels like home. However, 1 thing i was dissappointed is the bath tub which is clugging. You have to wait for few minutes till water is down before next person can take a shower which is really inconvenient. Plus check in time is 4pm- we got their after 4pm and the room is […] not ready yet but front desk is nice enough to give us a 2 complimentary brkfast in one of their restaurant to compensate for waiting. Overall, hotel is not bad at all ambience is ok if they can just fix their bathtub then i will rate this hotel at 5. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
