Room could have been cleaner and there was supposed to be a fridge and microwave in the room but wasn’t - service was great and friendly though.

Bad service
My family and I stayed for my daughters softball tournament in July. The front desk acted disinterested in working. There was no fridge in my room and as parents you all know when your staying with kids you need food and drinks. I was told I needed to wait for the maintenance to return from dinner around 7 pm , no big deal. At around 7:45pm from returning from dinner I had called and had asked if there were any available fridges and the service desk rudely answers and stated they have about 200 hundred rooms and are working on it and hung the phone up on me. I was a little annoyed at that point so I decided I would wash my daughters uniform for tomorrows game. I then needed change for their machine. I had went to the front desk and politely asked for change for two dollars. The man at the front desk said sorry, I would have to wait for the person who has change around 9 pm. I just feel when you pay 180 dollars a night you should have a fridge and change. Also, not make your guests feel like you are inconviencing them if you ask a question.

Unfortunately the best hotel in the area
Holiday Inn Gurnee, is unfortunately one of the better hotels in the area, so they don't have to work hard to get business. Their customer service is lacking and they seem disorganized. Half of their employees are really attentive and nice and the other half acts like being there is a burden and are disgruntled. The hotel itself is just ok, the rooms are inconsistent, some have hairdryers, mini fridges and other standard accessories, while other do not. While the amenities are nice, after running on the treadmill, their were no towels in site, both in the gym and at the pool. Overall it was a subpar experience and I hope that better hotels move to Gurnee so we can provide better hospitality to our guests.

This is the second time I've stayed here and the second time they have screwed up my reservation. The first time the guy was so nice and tried to make it right I was blown away by the customer service but not this time. This time even the manager lied to my face. Told me that they didn't have the room I rented and that didn't guarantee anything. Yes it does I pay for that type of room. Then they said they were upgrading me and didn't but led me to believe it till I walked into my room. There is nothing about this place worth the money. I've tried them twice. Don't bother staying.

Very Unsatisfied Customers
My family and I stayed here for a little family vacation and it was awful! The elevator buttons were broke, no hot water, $14 breakfast buffet which was what you would normally get at any other hotel for free, which they failed to inform you of until you actually sit down with food then ask you if you want to pay there or have your room charged! My family and I will not stay here again!
