TripAdvisor Ratings

Everything we wanted by an efficient and friendly staff!
June 18, 2018

The room was huge, clean, ac worked perfectly, TV worked perfectly, we lucked out and they gave us a ground floor on the outside so easy parking, no pool noise, I think one train went by but not bad noise. They don't have refrigerator's or microwaves but they will happily store your food for you at the office. And they have a microwave up there. WiFi worked perfectly and was easy to use. Pizza place across the street delivers and the motel has a deal with them for 10% off, what a deal and yummy too!

Great Service
April 17, 2018

The manager gave me an upgrade to a suite, and the person at the front desk, (pronounced "Lynn-nae") had brought in homemade cookies and cupcakes that she made. The manager and staff (desk and cleaning) went out of their way to make sure that I was comfortable. I like this place--and the location relative to NIU, nearby Starbucks/dinner options, and the north end of town, generally, works well.

Charming no-fuss hotel with excellent staff !
April 10, 2018

We brought the kids to Dekalb, my home throughout elementary school, in March of 2017, so they could experience its sweet small town charm and also tour Chicago and see Hamilton. The kids absolutely loved Dekalb, and I just loved being back in town and seeing so many charming sights I hadn't seen in 35 years. This hotel is clean, conveniently located in town, not a far drive from Chicago and other areas fun to explore, and the staff are beyond friendly and helpful - every single person we encountered. One morning the kids even made themselves coffee in the lobby - they couldn't get enough of this place. When my uncle, who lived in Freeport. suddenly and unfortunately passed away last July, one small silver lining was that coming for his memorial gave us all a chance to be back in Dekalb. The two trips were so sentimental and emotional for me, as I retraced steps around my old stomping grounds in the midwest and soaked in nostalgia and charm, and magical for the children to see that all I had shared with them about this wonderful town was true, and the kind treatment and TLC of the Red Roof staff greatly enhanced our entire experience. The kids in no way wanted to stay anywhere else for the second trip, and are dreaming about their next visit here. I've stayed in some luxurious hotels and seen so many amazing places around the world, but I can't think of any destination that compares with this sweet trip down memory lane, watching my children catch fireflies in the grassy backyard of the Red Roof, being dazzled by the fireworks at Hopkins Park as tears streamed down my eyes, and catching up with every new and old thing lovable Dekalb has to offer. If you're looking to make those kind of priceless memories, the Red Roof Inn in Dekalb is home base for your stay !!!

Two nights
March 23, 2018

Just got here. Not impressed. Greeted by grumpy and humorless front desk clerk. If I want to be mistreated, I'll call my ex. So the clerk on the poopy person's list before I can get out my id. Can't find the ice machine anywhere including the lobby. Now I'm annoyed. Been here 15 minutes and I hate the place. The property backs up to the railroad tracks. Yay. I'm pretty sure I can find a liquor store and summon myself for the rest of the stay, but I'll never be back.

Taken advantage of
March 11, 2018

We arrived at 8:30pm. .we were booked under a block of rooms for wrestling match..which usually gets the customer the best price...I had looked earlier in the week the room was going for 59 dollars a night. .when we checked in they'd jacked the price to 112. I wasn't happy but it was late and my husband was ready to call it a day. We got the keys to the room..we were told you have to go outside at 30 degrees to get to our room. .upstairs ...which the key didn't work after several tries . ..I went down got a new key, tried it. . 2nd key didn't work, went back downstairs for 3rd key...while my husband and children stood outside our room again ...tried it ..and it didn’t work. ..I told my family we are going downstairs. .they can come open the door then we can come up. .the friendly receptionist sent the maintenance man to open which he did..then he took the whole lock off the door and left, so now we can't exactly get a shower and go to bed since there was now no lock on our door...he supposely fixed and brought it back up...put it on. .he wasn't satisfied so he proceeded to take it off again and go back downstairs mean while I had my son shower...1 towel used, the next boy asked for a towel and I was looking for towels..I noticed that there was mold under the toliet seat that I could see from 5 foot away. .. was now 9:45 pm so I called the desk and asked can you please have the maintenance man bring towels and washcloths up when he brings the lock back up..the friendly receptionist said no the maintenance man is gone.."the towels are here in the lobby, you will have to come get them" I told her really there's only 2 towels and washcloths up here and I have to come get more...all the while I am thinking it's 30 degrees outside, no elevator I have been waiting over an hour for my room door to close.... never before have we paid such a price for a room with no breakfast, poor service, 2 towels.....when I checked the website the next day the price was 72 for the night...the management is taking advantage of travelers....the note at the desk said sign up for membership with Red Roof Inn. ..get a free water bottle. ..really that's really not what I look for in a motel. I wanted to treated like a customer. ..I will gladly pay for services when you have supplied what is expected.
