Stayed here 2 nights on a leisure trip. Not entirely sure what enticed me to stay here other than it's a safe location with good restaurants and shopping nearby. The hotel is probably the unsafest thing about this entire area (Algonquin/Lake in the Hills) - there appears to be homeless people living at the hotel, eating the breakfast all morning. Their cars were parked in the lot outside for several days which makes me think they are jobless / living at the hotel. Not welcoming. I had booked two separate reservations because IHG.com does not let you book points/ cash combined up into one. The front desk staff refused to do a multi-night check in saying I'd have to come back down and check out / in. Didn't work for my plans, I've stayed at many many IHG's and never had this issue. The front desk staff also seemed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol potentially since they didn't activate my keys when they gave them to me, had to come back down and get it done. Overall it's a very very dated property with old furniture, the bathrooms are old (the toilet wasn't even straight lol), broken shower ring on the shower curtain. In need of repairs. The good: comfy beds and nice pillows. The rest, doesn't make it worth it.

During my stay here in Algonquin, I really appreciated the staff that went out of their way to make my stay pleasant. The housekeeper was especially professional to quickly get in and out to clean my room when I requested. This was a safe, quiet place to stay, within walking distance to plenty of shopping, Target, Kohl's and a great restaurant nearby, Syrup.

Clean room !! Made me feel safe. Slept great.. They need to put new mattress covers on the bed for a little more softness. Nice staff. Held the room for us as we ran late. Last minute reservation and they made sure to accommodate us the best that they could.

Negatives: mold in shower, very used furniture, outdated everything, poor breakfast, weird location overlooking high school. Positives: bed and pillows comfortable, room and bathroom size (king executive), friendly front desk, room rate, quiet Would stay again to visit local family if the rate was low.

Hi MrandMrsAchey, I am glad you left feedback. Thanks for giving us a try! We promise fresh, practical, and efficient for simple, smart travel and I'm concerned that we missed the chance to give you a positively memorable one. I'm sorry we were not able to meet your expectations especially with the shower condition, outdated furniture, and breakfast. Don't worry, I have communicated your comments to the hotel and I trust they are on top of these issues. On a brighter side, I'm glad that you found our bed and pillows and comfortable. I'm also happy to know that the size of the room and bathroom were up to your liking. I am thrilled to read that our staff made a positive impact. They are committed to making our guests smile. Looking forward to welcoming you back! Cheers, June A. Case Manager IHGService
