Wanted to stay at a Hotel with a pool so the Grandkids could swim and spend some time together.

Breakfast was either waffles...

Overall it was an ok stay. We asked for extra towels and were not given any. Our toilet got clogged and we had to fix it ourselves. I didn't think that was ok. The pool was fun. There should be smoking and non-smoking rooms not just non. It was an ok stay, nothing special for the price.

When traveling north or visiting Manteno I always stay here (at least for the last 10 years). Good location just outside of Chicago. This is an older motel, but it is kept clean and the staff is very friendly and the neighborhood is very safe. Stopped by to visit my family and go to the Pearl Jam Concert. Stayed here...

This place really needs to be remodeled, The staff was OK but the room had dirty mold looking stuff around the bathtub.Wall paper peeling off the walls. Hole in Bath ceiling around light fixture. Not a very good selection for breakfast. Before I stay again I am going to ask if it has been remodeled.
