Verified Reviews of Illinois Beach Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lake Michigan five stars. Hotel 4/3 stars."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Staff was friendly, room was clean and accommodating, wi fi did not work, actual hotel setting is fair and needs some TLC, however the hotel location on Lake Michigan is your shining star. We attended a wedding here as well, I will let my daughter's review stand alone.

17-Aug-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Aug 13 to Sat Aug 15 2020 at a $146.22 average nightly rate.
"Very dissatisfied. Room was not a partial water view and was a view of an ugly roof top. The A/C uni"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Very disappointed. The room was not a partial Waterview. It looked over an ugly tattered roof top with an AC/heating unit in the window which block the view. The bathroom floor was dirty in the bathroom. When housekeeping came they did not clean the sink or toilet or floor. They did not vacuum the rug. They did not replenish the coffee and took a cup of creams that we had put there so that we could enjoy coffee in the morning. We were up one night most of the night was slamming doors and loud noises from the hallway due to a wedding party being positioned on our floor. We complained twice to security to stop the noise it went on for quite some time. Overall found the hotel to be very dirty, including several times in the elevator with lots of water most likely from people going to and from the swimming pool.

"Not what we expected."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The resort was not what we expected it to be. The scenery was nice, however the resort itself was not. Room was very outdated, we had bugs in our room, the tub was clogged. When someone came to fix it, they left the tub extremely dirty. I'll never return.

"Poor Service"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
At checkout there was an unnecessary authorization of my parents card. ( I had already prepaid the room for their 25th year anniversary). When I contacted the front desk of the hotel,the clerk did not have a clear understanding of how the system worked. Will not return.

The room did not have a microwave and fridge and the bed was out of alignment and at checkout they were charging more money, with no reason.. Even though I had paid a week before online.
