I was given an upgrade upon arrival by the desk clerk. I didn't ask for that, but this happens often at Best Westerns because I am a rewards member. Hotel was easy to find, clean and quiet. Window units can be a bit drafty in the dead of winter, but that is only a very minor complaint.

This hotel offers the amenities of a hotel with the yesteryear charm of a motel. The breakfast area is a pretty cramped, but if that's not an issue for you this hotel is a great value. My room featured a huge TV (probably 50") and a remodeled bathroom. The HVAC unit in the room had to work overtime due to...

Our regular stays at the BW in St. Charles, IL have been excellent. It is a great value in what is a very pricey market. Moreover, the staff is very accomodating to our needs. We highly recommend the BW for travelers.

We stayed in the executive rooms. Large room with 2 queen sized beds - very comfortable. We were visiting friends and family in the area and were happy to come back to a warm, clean, comfortable place to sleep.

This is a great property! We had a king bed room which was located on the ground floor of what appeared to be a newer two-story building.

We stayed here 1 night. We had booked 2 nights but had a change of plans, and the man at the front desk allowed us to check out and cancel the second night.

web site states continental breakfast. they do offer hot items also. Outdoor entrances to rooms, noise filters in a lot. None from adjacent rooms. 2 floors, no elevator. Updated baths, normal hotel decor in room. Clean, beds okay, I would have liked firmer. Gps couldn't find address, used Colonial Cafe, next door and found it.
