My husband has stayed at this property several times over the past couple of months as it is located literally across the street from my sister's home that he us helping renovate for her. For the first reservation, I used our AARP card to get a discount and had no issues with it. However, for the next three stays, even...

Be aware! This is the not place to stay if you are African American, they follow you all over the motel... questioning your every move.

We are in Sycamore to go to a wedding. We were only going to stay 2 nights which way did. I was more than a little bit skeptical because of some of the reviews I had seen here. I booked the room thru trip advisor or hotels.com and got a fabulous rate. I found that none of bad things about...

This is newly furnished motel and it shows. Checking went smoothly. Most facilities in this chain don't have elevators; this one does. Free coffee was offered in the lobby. The room had both a refrigerator and microwave. Everything was clean and up-to-date. My only concerns would be the size of the room which leads to a few to another issue....

After staying 2 night in dirty and disgusting hotel in other city, motel 6 Sycamore was like a paradise: very clean and fresh room, good beds and quiet room. We had good Chicago deep dish pizza from next building only 20 meters from motel 6. We had good time to check in while they were baking pizza (40 minutes).

Everything was good in this hotel. The room we got was brand new and super clean. There were vending machines in our floor. Adding to that the service, reception, prices, breakfast, ... etc. The only thing wrong - in my opinion- was having a smoking rooms very close to the non smoking rooms. Because we spent the night in front...

If you want a pool or frozen donuts for breakfast, don't stay here. If you enjoy a good cup of Bunn coffee, clean linens, well stocked towels already in the room, a mini-fridge & microwave in the room & might need to do a load of wash, this is the place for you! For the price, you can't beat this...

Sycamore is a small town connected to DeKalb, Il where Northern Illinois University is.
