      Close to the university

      Train noise,breakfast bar not stocked or old food,needs to be updated,outside doors to buildings didn't work,the halls stuck like throw up.

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      Nothing was remarkable.

      Train tracks on the South boundry of the hotel property contributed to very loud noises all night. I never realized Dekalb had so much rail traffic.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Convenient, no bothered by staff, friendly/helpful staff

      Not enough toilet paper

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      It was centrally located. Close to university. King bed was comfortable.

      The hotel was close to train tracks. The television didn't get good reception. There was no ice machine in the building we were located. There was a smelling in the room, probably from the bathroom leak that made the carpet wet by the door..

      They upgraded me to a suite because the hotel was not filled to capacity.

    • Family with children

      Nothing...the heat was on high but we were sleeping in heavy clothes to stay warm.

      Will never stay there again, even in another Best Western. We have had bad experiences before.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      It was very close to the University, easy access to where I wanted to go and very close to several very good restaurants.

      I would have liked to have a small refrigerator and the bathroom could have used a little updating (an exhaust fan).

    • Family with children
      3.8

      We thought the beds were comfortable and that's it. My son found a bug in his bed. The trains at night were very loud and came one right after the other. For the money,I don't think it was worth it. Also the continental breakfast was terrible with only a very few cold items to choose from. We won't stay there again.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Cleaner and nicer than the next door neighbor Baymont

    • Single
      9.6

      The security could be better for an elderly single traveler. I was in a building separate from the lobby, and the outside door was not locked, nor was the corridor door locked. I felt that there was only my room door providing any kind of security.

    • Couple
      8.2

      It was centrally located within easy driving distance to just about everything you night want to do. I know many complained about a train nearby but honestly we never really heard it. There was a college game in town the weekend we were there and the hotel was pretty full, but again, we really never heard any noise even with all the kiddos running around! Cleaning staff was soooooooo friendly!

    • Family with children
      7.8

      I wasn't disturbed when I didn't want to be disturbed, and housekeeping was quick and efficient when I was away.

      The person at the desk when I checked in spent quite a while on the telephone, making me wait to check in. When I checked out, no one was at the desk or answered my calls for several minutes, then checked me out while chatting with a friend, never even looking me in the eye. Housekeeping staff were friendly and personable. Desk staff obviously were bored and uninterested in the guests.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      The room cleanliness and comfort. Equally as good was the staff. Everyone we talked to was friendly, courteous, and helpful.

      A minor problem with the bathroom light switch. According to the staff, similar switches in all bathrooms are in the process of being changed out.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      Close to the University Library where we worked two days. The rates were very reasonable for the room.

      We were international visitors and did not drive. We almost cancelled the booking when we realized there was no transport from Elburn Station. A very kind local resident drove us to the hotel.
