We normally stay in Branson, Missouri, so we were expecting a certain quality for our room, we were pretty disappointed as our room was not up to the standards the Branson resort has. The presidential unit was not kept up well...the jetted tub kept shooting out hard water build up, which was pretty gross...the seats at the table were loose...

purchased through Armed Forces Vacation Club, so value was extraordinary. was met by Dan checking in. Very helpful and welcoming after 16 hour drive. A little disappointed as I had communicated to fox river that we wanted the President's lodge. Found out after getting there that it is not a choice when purchasing through AFVC. Condo in building 8 ,2...

Sue and I stayed at the Fox River Resort in Sheridan, IL for a little getaway. Nice staff and very clean. Big indoor pool and a beautiful indoor water park. The park was only opened during the weekend during the off season. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Limited WiFi and phone reception....

I stayed here for free as part of a timeshare promotion. I have a one year old and four year old and I think it was perfect for us. We stayed in a 2 bedroom presidential which was huge. My 4 year old had his own kitchen. The only problem was when he woke up at night he couldn't find...

A year ago we purchased what was then called a "sampler package" (they were trying to sell us a time share). We were told when booking a few weeks ago that they were full this was peak season but given a room since our time limit on the purchase was about to expire. Last week we decided to take advantage...

I need to begin by saying we stayed on this property as part of a marketing scheme. When we booked with a man at a Holiday Inn Resorts tent in Normal, IL at a festival, the man told us we were going to be staying at a Holiday Inn Express offsite the resort, and be traveling to the resort to...

Ladies' weekend a success! The welcome center staff were friendly and informative. I had requested a refurbished unit based on reviews I had read, and our 2-bedroom condo was clean, comfortable, and very nicely updated. We explored the grounds but did not use the indoor pool or water park, mainly because we didn't have children with us. The town of...

The resort is great. I stayed at the Presidents area in a One bedroom apartment and was all fine. My apartment was clean, all functional, great bed, Jacuzzi, full kitchen, Laundry and plenty of space. The resort is great for families and small kids, with many activities like the Mini Golf, the games room, DVDs rental, pool table, ping pong,...

First I want to say that we were here in off season, so things might be livelier in the summer. There were activities scheduled but no one there to do anything. The staff was willing to do it for just the 2 of us but we decided not to do it. There is a limited menu restaurant on site but...

The staff always go above and beyond expecting, I would rate them a 5+. We have visited multiple times and have always enjoyed our visit. The resort does cater to younger children but older children can have fun. If you need another location to eat Francesca is very good. If anything goes wrong a maintenance has always come very fast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax and Renew in Rolling Midwest Hills. The sprawling resort is located about an hour-and-a-half south of Chicago in the beautiful, rolling hills of Illinois. It features a wide range of outdoor activities for family fun. It starts with a stocked, seven-acre lake, ready for fishing. Or, rent a canoe or paddle boat and enjoy a relaxing cruise across its still waters. For swimming, we have an indoor and outdoor pool, plus the always fun year-round indoor Pirates Cay Indoor Water Park™. It features interactive water features, water slides, lazy river, food outlets and more. For sports, enjoy everything from basketball, tennis and volleyball to cross country skiing. And our 9-hole, par 3 executive golf course will help you get that swing back. Plus, the 18-hole mini golf course is a big hit with kids, as is the Activity Center with an arcade, mini movie theater and more. A playground, ball field and sports equipment and even horseback rides help round out your outdoor fun. Sheridan, IL is a rural location, making it a perfect place to get away and relax. Beautiful state parks, historic sites and golf courses are all nearby. Shopping, dining, movie theaters and other entertainment can also be found in the region. And, it's close enough to the greater Chicago area and downtown to experience a day of wonderful sites and attractions. ... more   less
