Positive Reviews

Friendly, helpful staff.

Basic, budget-friendly rooms.

Convenient location for attractions.

Negative Reviews

Rooms need updating.

Rooms are in need of serious updating and renovating as many of the furnishings are quite worn and the general décor is also very dated. En suite bathrooms are also in need of renovation and updating as many of the appointments including faucets, showerheads and hand rails are either worn or in disrepair. Water pressure is somewhat lacking and showers/tubs take a considerable amount of time to drain.

Thin walls leads to disruptions.

Room walls are extremely thin which leads to a number of disruptions which include being able to hear conversations and activities in neighboring rooms or people walking in hallways or up and down the stairs.

Very poor Wi-Fi service.

While Econo Lodge Gurnee advertises free Wi-Fi service in rooms and in all public spaces, the reality is that the Wi-Fi service on offer is sorely lacking and is not suitable for business travelers or anyone who requires the use of the internet to make bookings or research the area before leaving.
