I travel often to Waukegan Area last minute. Stay several location. I find that each time I stay at Red Roof the customer service is great. Doesn't take long to check in. The place remodeling is getting better and better.

Management, namely Ketan runs a superb hotel, along with his fine staff that assist him.

I have had the pleasure of staying at red roof on occasion and have been extremely pleased with the prompt service I receive. It is very clean and also very quiet. The staff is always courteous. My main interest is that there are no bed bugs or otherwise to disturb my stay. And I have never seen any.

Condom Wrapper in Bed at Check In !!!
June 27, 2019

After driving 10+ hours, we checked in a little before 8PM and got the worst greeting ever. After the young kid working the night shift gave us the key card, we discover tucked nice and neat under sloppy sheets, undesirable body hairs, lint and other debris, and worst of all (drum roll)....... A CONDOM WRAPPER!! The second room had similar unacceptable conditions with debris in the bed. At that point we asked to address this with the hotel manager and seek a refund. The 21-23 yr old front desk kid had no authority to approve a refund and called the manager to convey the situation. The Hotel Manager acknowledged a refund would be granted once Booking/Priceline contacted the hotel. 30-45 minutes later, we were able to book a hotel 5 miles down the road (Comfort Suites-Grayslake) and salvaged a decent nights sleep. The Hotel Manager (Kattan) refused to accept any responsibility for his staff's negligence. We are still chasing a refund with and Priceline two weeks later. But don't take our word for it. Don't even look at the attached pics. Be adventurous and take a chance yourself. Book here... If you want to throw away $60-$85 and chase after it for weeks If you want a Pandora's box of treats in your bed like we has in ours If you want to find yourself arguing with a manager that ignores the issue and goes to any length to avoid any responsibility for his staff's negligence If I could give this hotel ZERO stars to write this review I would!! Red Roof Inn used to be a clean, reliable 2 star hotel chain. Not anymore.

Dirty, would not ever stay again.

I usually don’t ever have a hotel fail on everything and can usually find something positive to write, but not this time. The location of the is in a pretty rough area. Not safe for being out of your room after dark. The rooms I had were out dated and smelt bad. They were not serviced daily and I had to ask for new towels every day so I could shower. The staff was rude and when I mentioned that my room was not being cleaned he started to yell at me and said I was lying. It was a very odd situation. My trash was over flowing from three days of not being emptied, my beds were unmade and all the towels were dirty, but I’m lying about my room not being serviced. In the hundreds of hotels I’ve stayed at, the level of rudeness and unprofessionalism of the daytime front desk staff and the rooms cleaners is the worst I have ever encountered. If you have a choice to stay anywhere else than you should. Avoid this place like you do steeping in a pile of dog poop.
