4/10 Fair

Elwood has always been one of our favorite places to stay but this time when we checked in the restaurant/bar was closed for out entire stay and that is one of the highlights that we enjoyed when we stayed there. The atmosphere has always been welcoming and fun but this time we felt as if we were staying at a place that was actually closed which took away from our overall experience. Hopefully this changes but I will definitely call before booking again to make sure it's a different experience.

False advertising
The hotel says it’s pet friendly. I looked to see if there were any additional charges or a special room I had to book and could find nothing. When I checked in I told the desk I had a dog and asked if I had to do anything special. They stated no. Upon returning with my small dog a manager stopped me and said I had to pay $75 per night pet fee. I told her I looked about couldnt find that listed and she ignored me. The bar and restaurant were never open while we were there. Looked sad like it’s about to go out of business…..and I can understand when you are unclear on policy and pricing
