"Dated hotel, nice outdoor pool, older but nice fitness center."

08/07/2018

This hotel definitely could use some updates, lock chains on the hotel rooms are one, but the motel was clean and loved the easy access to the parking lot. The outdoor pool was large and clean, the fitness center faces the pool so it offered nice views while working out. The front desk staff definitely could use some training, did not thank us for being Diamond Rewards members nor did they offer us our free welcome gift. The lobby is separated from the rest of feb hotel, you have to walk outside to go to breakfast which may offer an inconvenience during the colder months. The breakfast was ok. Not the best Best Western we have stayed at, but reasonably priced and we had a comfortable night stay.

"Stay away"

1
30/06/2018

Where to begin? Hotel staff is incredibly rude. No security means people sitting outside on lawn chairs until all hours drinking and playing music. My husband asked housekeeping to come back in 10 minutes when we would be gone, to which the owner (who follows the maid around) yelled "No! You take housekeeping now or you don't get it. We not coming back!!!" Breakfast area is cramped and owner will literally stand over you at 10 am demanding you leave because "breakfast is over." We were with a very large group for a skating competition--pretty much sold out most of the rooms, yet we were thrown out of the basement (where there's a dark, dingy "conference room") and ordered to pay $700 to use it for 1/2 an hour. Several things went missing from our room. Also be very cautious at the pool area -- pool service said its wires are duct-taped together clearly in violation of whoever inspects this thing. Also three stone-cold sober members of our group fell at the pool because of a hazardous ramp area that's not marked. We'd literally see someone with bruises and sat "you fell at the pool too?" Stay away. It's horrible.

"Where customer service is job zero"

1
08/06/2018

Based on Trip Advisor reviews from three months ago, I made reservations for a one night stay. Upon arrival and informing the guy at the counter that I had reservations, his first words were "credit card". No welcome, or can I help you. His next directive was to sign his invoice. No further conversation on his part. Once at the room, we found that the toilet had been used, not flushed, and obviously not cleaned. Strike three came the next morning upon checkout, when a different guy was behind the counter. He was on the phone, and couldn't be bothered to end his conversation, to check me out, (and no it wasn't a business conversation). Really if they don't value their customers, there are plenty of other options, in the St. Charles area.

"Nothing appealing "

1
02/06/2018

Well. Shower broken, hot and sticky and direct view on the car park along the street . It is not worth the money. Breakfast area is not relaxing and overall quality very disappointing... it is convenient for a quick night ( late arrival early departure) that's all ! There are much better alternatives in the area!

"Hotel almost ruined wedding"

29/05/2018

Worst experience. Staff is rude and nasty and not helpful. The front desk clerk threatened me and would not help. They had the wrong name on my reservation even though they had my credit card right name and charged that so fast isnt funny. I had the reservation number but they wouldn't give me the room because they put the wrong name on it and I has talked manager multiple times.

"This place sucks!"

1
05/05/2018

Do not stay here. The front desk clerk was rude at check in. Did not offer express check out. Did not recognize my platinum status. He was upset due tthe fact I had my service animal with me. Was treated rude by the rest of the syast too. They were always watching your every move

An older style motel with adequate parking. Located with a restaurant in the shared parking lot. Difficult to navigate into traffic. Beds are comfortable and housekeeping is attentive to your needs. The breakfast area is a bit crowded but ofo good quality.

"Halls Very Noisy"

2
18/04/2018

This hotel is clean. The problem we had was every day the cleaning crew would come into the building and start yelling (or talking very loud) for the whole time that they were in the building. Didn't seem to care if anyone was in their rooms trying to take a nap or read a book. They would even try and talk over the other person running a vacuum. Way too noisy for us.

"Exellent"

27/03/2018

A clean, quiet warm place to stay on business or leisure. i would recommend this to any one traveling to the St Charles Illinois area. convenient parking and within short walking distance to many quality restaurants.

"Great place to stay"

08/02/2018

My family and I stayed here on a family getaway. This place is awesome. The room was clean, easy access for a trip to the City, or just going to find a place to eat. We got there early and had no problem getting early check-in. The staff was super friendly and helpful! The breakfast was first rate. This is probably the best breakfast selection I've ever seen! Hot breakfast or cold, your choice. I will definitely stay here again! A+++

"Best of Everything"

10/01/2018

This hotel is conveniently located on main access through St. Charles, close to downtown, right next to fabulous Colonial Cafe (ice cream & full meal menu). Hotel room was clean, modern, attractive, and spacious. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Room rate with full hot breakfast included was very affordable.

"Weird place"

24/12/2017

This hotel is the most strangest I've ever been too. they clean in the middle of the night (vacuum). One of the staff was being a stalker starring at my co workers from the window for over 20 min. (i even took a picture, but should of took a video) management didn't care about any of this. And to top it off i was showering and one of the house keeper (i never called) came inside and was just standing in the room and as soon as i walked out he panic and ran out the room without saying one word. Management laughed at the story.

"Satisfatory"

Nice clean and updated facility with excellent customer service. The cost/amenities were a great value. Payed about $100 for a King Suite w whirlpool. The breakfast was good, and parti ularly the coffee compared to other hotels.

My girlfriends and I brought our adult daughters here for a weekend. We went to the Arcada Theatre and then dinner in Geneva. The Kane County flea market. The final day shopping in Geneva...this hotel was so reasonable and easy access to everything.

"One of the Best place I stayed"

30/11/2017

It was clean staff was friendly and there were no issues to deal with it just what you want when staying at the hotel. The only issue I had was the cold weather outside but that Chicago for ya cant blame the hotel on that

"nicely run hotel and very clean comfortable rooms"

29/11/2017

This is a well run hotel and the staff make every effort to meet the needs of their customers. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone needing a hotel in the St Charles, Illinois area. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfast is very good with a lot of choices. the fitness center has a choice of exercise machines in it. Nice hotel..

"Poor TV"

4
13/11/2017

TV needs adjustment. It showed people as being FAT. Staff needs to clean room earlier in day. They arrived to clean/service room at 4 PM. Our day was over at that time, so we sent them away. Otherwise the room was always very clean.

"Very nice and economical place to stay"

08/11/2017

I spent 2 nights here recently while attending a wedding and was very happy with the location, the facilities, and the hotel staff. I was given a free upgrade, the free breakfast include a very nice variety of options, and the hotel staff was able to help me get my smart phone connected to their free WiFi. The beds were very comfortable, and the heating/AC system had the continuous fan option that I like.

"Nice facility"

23/10/2017

Older facility but very clean...convenient location...nice fee breakfast...fair price...we will be back when in the area. Be sure to check out St Charles and Geneva IL...nice towns..lots to see...Kane County is a great area...lots of family fun!

Rude and thoughtless manager, Promised to transport group of guests for a wedding in a bus. Ended up beingone beat up van that could not take us all in one trip. By the time it would have came back to pick up the rest the wedding would have been over. Do not trust management.

"Location, location, lication"

07/10/2017

This modest, comparatively inexpensive Best Western is located east of central St. Charles on Route 64, well removed from the quaint elegance and ambience the Fox Cities are famous for. But what makes up for this is that it is adjacent to the Colonial Cafe, an historically renowned local diner famous for its homemade ice creams, as well as superb breakfasts, and good lunches and dinners. The rooms at the BW are clean, well kept, and comfortable, though the overall structure is somewhat plain and outdated. The South Indian family that maintains the BW are hard working and dedicated. The breakfasts at the BW need improvement. The grey breakfast sausages, for instance,seem to have been heated up in a microwave. The breads are not appealing. But why would anyone want breakfast at the BW, when a world class breakfast is inviting you from the Colonial Cafe next door?

"Love staying here."

5
18/09/2017

We come to Chicago area several times a year and we stay here as it is central to areas we want to visit. We enjoy eating at the Colonial Cafe next door as the food is real comfort food. We sleep better here thab at home as the mattress is the best for our backs.

"Highly recommend"

03/09/2017

The staff, facilities, and service was outstanding. I plan on returning to this Best Western when traveling to the St. Charles, IL area. The room decor was calming. The room and hallway was very clean. Great place!

"Nice Overnight Stay "

20/08/2017

We stayed in a King interior room. It was very clean and roomy. The staff was very welcoming. We did not use the pool or weight room but we did see that both areas were clean and orderly and that other customers were enjoying the facilities. We did not try the free breakfast that was available. We come to the area often and will return to this property.

"strange call from hotel"

3
14/08/2017

received a call from the hotel in middle of the afternoon on our day of arrival. Hotel staff was asking if we were still coming??? It was 2:00pm. I explained that yes we were still coming and thats why we reserved rooms. We were travelling on motorcycles and check in would be late. Said they had to charge my card on file. I explained that I reserved rooms and others in group would cover their rooms upon check in. Charges were done on my card on arrival and staff said couldn't reverse.

"Nice in new building not so in old motel part"

05/08/2017

Last year we stayed in newer 2 story building this year in older motel side. Interior has been redone somewhat but still strong Oder of smoke unless you keep air cool and running full time. Blankets on bed need to be replaced. Old cheap pulled blue blankets. Great location but for price they need to overhaul the old building.

"Ok Room, Rude Manager"

3
26/07/2017

There were six of us women who stayed in a suite with a turn down couch. The suite was updated and clean. That couch was meant only for one and was not comfortable at all. They have a nice variety for their continental breakfast, but none of it tasted good except for the English muffin I had. The pool is small and there were no bathrooms by the pool or workout room. But what really upset me is that they charged my debit card the day before we made the reservations for. I did not have enough in my account to cover the fees and so my account was over-drawn. Everyone was pitching in for the room, I would have had the money at check out, like we have done at every other hotel we've stayed at over the last 18 years-including other Best Westerns. The girl behind the desk said they do that when they are fully booked. How was I to know they were booked? I spoke with the manager who was curt and said he is not going to play those games. What games? I'm the one whose card was unexpectedly charged. He would not return the money charged to me, he would not even look at the proof I had that the over draft caused by BW. The suite was decent. The staff was nice, but the manager was a jerk. I don't like their policy of charging my card because they are full. I can understand if I didn't show up without calling to cancel, but not charging my card the day before I am set to arrive. Not a bad place, but there are better.

"Stayed for Business"

26/07/2017

I checked in at 12:45pm and had reservations. There was a non-american who barely spoke english and gave me a room and said my room just got ready. The room smelled terribly of cigarette smoke, and was a handicapped room. The shower leaked and they had towel lining the outside of the shower. The internet code wasnt given to me, and I had to call back for it. When I checked out, I told them about the issues. Nothing was said to me about it or any appologies. Very upset and disappointed.

"Quiet, clean, updated hotel"

21/07/2017

Highly recommend this hotel. Very helpful pleasant staff. Spotless clean rooms and very quiet A/c. The location was very convenient. The Colonial Inn next door served reasonable and excellent food with a diversified menu.

"A nice place to stay"

18/07/2017

As an older hotel, we thought it was well kept. It looked like a family owned operation. They worked well as a team to make our stay comfortable. Our aim was to go to Geneva for my husband's Birthday dinner. Eat big and sleep cheap. Met our expectations.

"DO NOT STAY HERE!"

1
15/07/2017

Our visit started on the right foot. We arrived earlier than expected,and were given our room keys, but told to wait an hour or so for the room to be cleaned. No problem....Our room ended up not being cleaned until the actual check-in time. Again, no problem. Initially, room was adequate. We quickly readied for the wedding we were in town for, and left. Later that night, when turning the bed down, I discovered the bed sheets were wet. We called the front desk and they came to our room immediately. That is when our stay turned very sour... The lady who came to check it out apologized and said they had no open rooms, so they would change the sheets and left to gather them. While waiting, my husband stripped the bed to find the underneath of the comforter damp with yellow stains present. The plastic mattress cover was wet and everything had a strong urine odor. I phoned the front desk to make them understand they needed to DISINFECT the bed, not just change the sheets. She said she would come to our room. I asked them to smell the sheets, but they didn't, and, from that moment on, had all their conversations in their native tongue. They didn't disinfect the mattress. Just lightly wiped it with a dry towel and seemed to be put out that we wouldn't change the sheets ourselves. Mind you, it is now 11:35 pm, and our only option is to stay or pack up and go to another hotel. Fast forward to checking out.... the same woman who inspected our bed, is behind the desk and tells us that because she changed the sheets and we stayed, our visit is nonrefundable or discountable! We asked for corporate and suddenly a manager discounted our stay. We have stayed at Best Westerns in other cities.... This hotel should be dropped from the chain. It's in more of a no tell motel class. We intend to report this hotel to the local health department, as sleeping on a bed in that nasty a condition, is a definite health hazard. To the local BBB, AND to the Best Western Corporate Office. DO NOT STAY HERE!

"Wonderful 5 days"

12/07/2017

Room was large and comfortable. Very clean inside and out. Pool was nice, always clean and plenty of towels were available poolside. Choice of hot or cold breakfast was very good and well supplied. Location was convenient and close to shopping, restaurants and for us - family. Staff always greeted us with a smile and were very polite.

"Don't stay here"

Room key only worked once, every time had to have them redo it. Room smelled musty ,a/c unit loud, stains on wall, and pillow cases. Found empty pop bottle by night stand. Put us in wrong room with 2 queen beds, requested a king.

"Highly recommended!"

05/07/2017

We showed up at the BW at 11:30pm after leaving a horrible hotel experience. The hotel clerk at the BW was empathetic and worked quickly with us to get us settled into a room. The house keeping staff and pool was amazing. The Continental breakfast was a plus. I highly recommend the BW in St Charles, Illinois.

"EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME"

25/06/2017

Just returned from a 3 day stay in St. Charles and at wonderful stay at this hotel. We had a lovely room.....2 queen beds (most comfortable, with 4 luxury pillows and soft smooth sheets. The room was in the Executive building and was so quiet that we never heard any of the other guests. Our parking spot was right outside the door and we were on the ground floor. A full breakfast was provided. This was one of the best hotel we have stayed in. Thank you for our lovely stay!!!!!!!!!!

Room was clean, and the outdoor pool was a refreshing bonus. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again the next time I am passing through St Charles. I was happy to see some healthy options at breakfast.

27/04/2017

Staff was very helpful, price was right, breakfast food was excellent, room was clean & quiet.I stayed here 2 nights this trip. I checked out in AM but forgot some drinks in the refrigerator & went back at 2:30pm, staff was very helpful & had my drinks for me. There were some stains on the chair & foot stool but staff said they shampooed them was the reason for this. The breathable air quality could be improved some, maybe a new air filter, rate 8 out of 10 for this (I have many allergies). But over all I like it here & I consider myself a picky person. I have stayed here 3 or 4 years in a row now.

"Disappointed with the Customer Service at this Location"

2
24/04/2017

First of all, when I arrived at this hotel, I was NOT greeted in Best Western style. The man behind the desk just glared and scowled at me. I told him I had a reservation and he processed it; however, he wasn't the least bit pleasant, nor did he say have a good stay or anything. Thus, my first experience was a negative one and it impacted the visit. I will outline both the pros and cons for you. Pros: The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. No real complaints with the quality of the accommodation. Cons: Our neighbouring guests were very noisy and you could hear everything. The fridge in the room had been turned off, so it was warm. My husband had to turn it on. My husband lost $1.00 in a vending machine. He asked for it back. Their solution was to give him a bag of chips and .40 cents. It made my husband feel like a crook. The breakfast was not up to par....bacon literally drenched and soaking in grease and sausage patties very greasy, too. Found an eggshell in the scrambled eggs. When I checked out, I was asked to sign another piece of paper....not even sure why. Never had to do this at another Best Western. I usually just hand in the key cards and leave. Would I go back here? Not unless every other hotel in the area was booked. It says it is operated by Pranham hospitality or something like that. Well, I hate to tell them that they need a Best Western refresher on the hospitality part.

I was told that this would be a non smoking room. The moment we opened the door the disgusting smell of cigarettes hit us in the face. The pictures on the website were much nicer than the room we rented.

Stayed 2 nights. Large room and queen size beds. Stayed in the executive building where all rooms open into corridor. They also have outside entrance rooms in another building. Clean and nice amenities. Hot breakfast included only improvement would be the coffee. Gym was nice and included two Tv's Had a small issue with tiny ants in bathroom once staff was aware they took care of issue immediately. Would stay again in area

Decent night stay, decent price, clean. Came in for a concert at the Arcada. Hotel is close to the show and close to some pizza places. Have stayed in nicer places but this is good for the price. Doors go to the parking lot. Door keys died twice but they got them fixed. Breakfast was a hot breakfast but I did not try it.

"Too smokey for me"

24/11/2016

We were given a smoking room which was disgusting. It was like sleeping in an astray. On the first night I asked to be moved and they claimed only a manager could do it, but refused to call one when I asked. The next morning I tried to get moved again and they claimed they were sold out, which was a lie because when my boyfriend went down and threatened to make sure everyone knew how disgusting the room was and unaccommodating the staff was, they miraculously found us a non-smoking room. Very disappointing service!

"Clean, quiet and convenient!"

22/11/2016

This is a great property! We had a king bed room which was located on the ground floor of what appeared to be a newer two-story building. The room was clean and it was quiet even though we faced the parking lot. It had a fridge and microwave and the WiFi signal was strong. It's within walking distance of a number of restaurants - one was right next door in fact. It's also about a mile from downtown St Charles and the river. Would I stay here again? You bet!

We stayed here 1 night. We had booked 2 nights but had a change of plans, and the man at the front desk allowed us to check out and cancel the second night. The room was large and very clean, in fact the facilities appear new (at least recently remodeled). Very nice continental breakfast too. We would surely stay again. Thanks!

web site states continental breakfast. they do offer hot items also. Outdoor entrances to rooms, noise filters in a lot. None from adjacent rooms. 2 floors, no elevator. Updated baths, normal hotel decor in room. Clean, beds okay, I would have liked firmer. Gps couldn't find address, used Colonial Cafe, next door and found it.

"Under Renovations"

25/10/2016

The room was clean but not what I had expected from this chain of Hotels. We had a great stay but it was as well maintained as I had hoped. The staff were not great at English and it was difficult to explain our needs at times. It was a rundown type of location. I was disappointed and will not stay there again unless it's a necessity. I didn't feel like we got our money's worth out of this hotel. I didn't feel as safe as I'd like in this type of accommodations.

Carlos S, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Well first I would like to thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey. I understand just how precious time actually is. I am so sorry that that you did not enjoy your stay.

Well located in St Charles, very clean and large room with super comfy beds and bedding. Good parking, felt safe. Quiet rooms even though off major street. We were able to have our dog, as we were attending the local dog show. There is an extra fee though. Wifi worked well, not slow. I would stay again.

Excellent stay, front desk manager very accommodating as we got there early and he offered us coffee and got our room ready earlier. Colonial cafe next door good place for breakfast (if not eating at hotel). Also, close to theater. Another good place to eat McNally's up the street. Geneva another close town to visit - great stores and restaurants.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Dear Patricia R, Thank you for your review and sharing your comments with our Trip Advisor Community. Thanks for the compliment regarding how excellent your stay was. Thank you for the positive mention regarding the location of the hotel. I agree with you the Colonial café right next door is a good place to eat, and they also have a very friendly staff. My favorite place is the Arcada Theater which is located very close to the hotel. Thank you for the compliment regarding our very accommodating front desk staff. I will be sure to share with them your positive comments. Again we can't thank you enough for all the wonderful comments you shared with our other travelers. We hope you come back and visit us soon.

"Visiting out of Town"

24/09/2016

The room was very clean, well stocked with the amenities. Needed an extra blanket and the Front Desk Staff were very helpful, all the people We met on this Trip at the hotel were friendly and very helpful. Bathroom very clean, beds well made, T.V. was great. The only bad thing i have to say is the pool was empty, but i did see they were doing renovation so i overlooked it. Breakfast was free with the Room and you had so much to choose from it was out of this world. The Staff in the morning were very help and always asking if we needed anything extra as the Breakfast was almost over when we got there, and they even let US sit longer and chat as I was in from out of Town to see my Family... It was a TRULY a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

"Bets bang for your Buck"

19/09/2016

I have stayed at several hotels in the Chicago area recently and by far for a place to sleep this was a hit in my book. The breakfast bar needs to be attended to a little more. They need to try some of the food that they are putting out on the bar and then they would understand what I am saying. My room was clean and everything worked in it. :-) I would stay here again if the need arises. Just a lot further from work was a issue.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Dear Christopher P Thank you for your review. Thanks for your positive comment regarding our hotel and how much of a hit it is in your book.

"Great staff - but facility is a surprise"

27/08/2016

We booked because the photos showed a hotel, but this is a motel with the room doors opening to the parking lot. We were assigned a smoking room, which did not work for us. Despite having a pre-paid reservation, the staff was gracious and refunded our money. If you are okay with a motel-style facility, the staff here is terrific.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Dear Beaucoupdetravel, Thank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback regarding your experience. I apologize if you were assigned a smoking room. We do offer several room types and that we failed to get your request correct is very disheartening to hear. I apologize for the extra charge, I was informed by my front desk that you were refunded as soon as we realized the mistake. If you are ever in the St. Charles area again, please feel free to reach out to me directly, I would love to make a reservation for you personally.

16/08/2016

I find the Chicago area obnoxiously crowded, busy, expensive. This motel was a welcome surprise, with a great restaurant right next door, The Colonial. The staff at the Best Western was competent, helpful, friendly, professional. The room was affordable, large enough, well furnished (and everything worked well), clean, effectively refurbished. Air quality was good and the bed was very comfortable. Quiet room, too! No complaints. Was disappointed that if my dog had come we would have been placed in a Smoking room, however.

Beware...this is a motel...not a hotel . We were supposed to stay 2 nights. The wash clothes were dirty and a cricket was in our air conditioner unit !! Really really bad and my husband thinks the owners LIVE there. We stayed one night only because it was going on midnight when we arrived ... we complained to the hotel and trip advisor the next day but we had to threaten calling our credit card company to complain before they gave us a refund for the 2nd night..STAY AWAY

"Beware !!!!"

02/08/2016

First of all.... this is a "Motel" not a hotel. Rooms are accessed from the parking lot. The products used to freshen-up the room was disgustingly overbearing. The "breakfast included" was a joke. There was capacity for around 6 people. I had no intentions of eating there. The price of the room $99.00 (tax incl.) was a complete ripoff. This is not your typical Best Western Hotel.

"Upgrading the property"

15/07/2016

I have stayed at this property several times over the last few years. My complaint has always been the property was outdated by about 10-15 years. I stay because the location is exactly where I want to be. They now serve a hot breakfast and have upgraded the exercise equipment. I believe the rooms are going through a rework as well. I only stay in the executive building because I enjoy more space than a standard room and usually stay a few days. I expect to book this hotel again in the spring and look forward to additional upgrades.

Nicely maintained smaller BW hotel in historic St. Charles, IL. Offers 2 (2story) buildings: one like "Motel" drive up parking and another with interior entry rooms. Nicely maintained, updated rooms.

We stayed at this Best Western for 9 nights at the end of May while we were waiting for our Grandson to be born. We originally had only booked for 5 nights, but had to add an additional 4 nights because our Grandson wasn't quite ready to come out yet! We travel all the time, and this property had one of the BEST breakfast buffets we have ever had! Property is going through some renovations, but other than that, our stay was perfect!!!

I generally have much better service at Best Western than what I was treated here. the owner was initially condescending and refused the discount I should have received as a member of Best Western. I could smell smoke and the lights weren't blacked out by the shades that other Best Westerns usually have. overall, this is the worst Best Western I've been to, and it was because of staff. good breakfast, very clean, great Internet, very convenient location.

We were checked in by Kushni (spell?) with a great big smile and check in took about three minutes-when my wife could not figure out how to use the wifi she walked her thru the steps with patience and grace. The property competes with a very clean city and raises the notch a bar. You have the feeling that if you were about to drop a candy bar wrapper on the grounds someone from housekeeping would be there to catch it before it hit the ground.

"Not bad for a quick stay and a deal"

30/05/2016

Three of us stayed here Memorial Day weekend for a wedding. I booked online and got a good rate on a large room. The room was very clean. The bed was kind of average and the pillows were big and kind of hard. As others have stated, the bathroom needs an upgrade. The TV was huge. Easily a lot larger than in other hotels I've stayed in. The wifi was free, which is always nice. The hotel is conveniently located and was easy to find. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We got a nice roll-away bed for my kid and the room was large enough to easily accommodate it. So, overall, it's not great, but it's not so bad if you get a good deal on it. I wouldn't pay more than $125/night to stay there, but by booking through a travel site I didn't pay anything near that anyway!

"Pleasant and friendly hotel, but needs an upgrade in 2 fields."

29/05/2016

We stayed in the hotel as part of a business trip for my wife. It is a motel type of place which also has executive rooms, that are really big. The room is comfortable (nice spacious bed, aircon, huge tv, lots of space), although it's quite outdated: there's a dusty smell to the room and the bathroom could use an update. The breakfast in this hotel was not so good: plastic cutlery and lots of unhealthy stuff (waffles, cookies, sugary non-fat yoghurt). So it was a pleasant stay, but not more than that.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Dear MartijnVrenssen, Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback so we can continue to improve. Thank you for the compliments regarding our executive rooms and how comfortable and spacious they are. I am sorry to hear that you were not impressed with our breakfast choices. While we do carry all the required items for the Best Western breakfast, we are always looking to improve, if you have any specific feedback about items that you would like to see, please feel free to reach out to me directly at (847) 464-8501. We really strive to create an exceptional guest experience and we all take it to heart when we do not achieve that.

"Good location and service."

16/05/2016

The location of this hotel was very convenient for us. Per previous reviewers' recommendations, we requested a room in the "executive building" and on the first floor since there is no elevator. The carpeting and bedding in our room appeared new. The heater was working well, which was a blessing since we visited on a cool weekend. No matter where your room is located, you have to go outside to get to the lobby and breakfast room. The breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold items, but it is a very small area. I had to ask a gentleman who was sitting at a table in front of the juice machine to pour me a glass of juice. The exercise room and equipment was great - very clean and looked new. The employees were all very nice. WiFi was kind of slow.

13/05/2016

This is a decent hotel. They are currently renovating. When we got our room it was two queen beds and I specifically asked for a king. I went back to the desk and they were able to switch us to a king room. The room was clean, updated. No comforter on the bed just two sheets and a blanket (could use a comforter when temperature is still cool out). Everything worked properly (lights, tv, hair dryer -- although if dryer gets to hot from being on to long it does shut off temporarily). There was no bars in the shower area, could use one. The full breakfast was really good and yes they could use more seating area or you can take it to your room! Night person at desk not as friendly as morning person (don't remember names). I would stay again.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review. Our goal as always is to provide a great stay for our guests. I was delighted to hear that we were able to accommodate your request for the king room.

Stayed here two times in the last two years and will likely return. Rooms are big, kept very clean daily and the breakfast ain't bad. Many shops and restaurants close by and not too far from the Metro train to downtown Chicago. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. This trip's sleep was interrupted twice by some early morning noise; probably mechanical. Also, wifi a little weak, but this room was in the back portion of the hotel. Overall, good place, good folks.

Lived the staff and the customer service provided by finding a way to get a room at late part of night, after midnight. The front desk employee was able to book a room after a cancelation and was very happy to help complete check in service much faster than usual because of lateness of check in and was able to make the stay seem like no time was lost versus if we were to check in at normal say check in time and have the full day to pay for and enjoy our stay!

"Disturbing"

28/03/2016

Check-in was cold and very impersonal. Neither person behind the desk was dressed professionally. And most aggravating of all was that two of the owners were loudly arguing in a foreign language while guests were trying to eat breakfast. It was very disturbing. Plus, hotel workers were eating in the breakfast area where there was hardly enough room for guests. Terrible experience and unusual for a Best Western. Also, the outside doors not locked at night.

We have used this Best Western Hotel many times over the past 12 years. We have always been satisfied. We were pleasantly surprised with our last stay that there had been some redecorating to the rooms, and upgrades to the breakfast. The hot offerings for breakfast were an especially nice addition. The only negative, and it's a small one, is that the lobby/breakfast area is a bit small. We have always been pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms and helpfulness of the staff.

Came here for a night out in Geneva. Got an exterior room. Was somewhat musty smelling. I found one of those old "cone" shaped air fresheners hidden in the closet in an attempt to cover it up.

My wife and I go to concerts at the Arcada Theater, which is only about a mile down the road from this facility, a few times every year.

"Nice clean and comfortable hotel"

This hotel is our home away from home at least three or four times per year. The room is always clean and comfortable. They have a nice breakfast ( including hot items). The staff is helpful. there is a fitness room and a washer and dryer available for guests to use. It is a convenient hotel as it is close to historic downtown St. Charles, Illinois. We highly recommend this hotel.

"Horrible place"

1
03/01/2016

Horrible place to stay. Their newly remodeled side was so outdated. The king jacuzzi was a cheap hotel style even by standards 20 yrs ago. I can't believe they're AAA rated. The tub was full of mold and crud (have pictures to prove it) due to poorly cleaned jets even after I ran a sanitizing tablet. Yuk. The free breakfast was nasty, orange flavored water for juice, fake syrup, not sure if the eggs were real and the coffee machine coffee was just colored water. Never will I ever go to ANY best western because of this place. The only reason I gave a one star rating was for the lady that was at the counter who was so sweet ( but was unable to make any decision without calling the manager)...too bad.

"A very different motel, depending on what section you stay in"

09/12/2015

We've stayed at this motel twice. The first time, we stayed in the section right next to the office - where the room entrances lead directly to the outside, like an old-school motel. Those rooms were extremely average, bare bones, no frills, not that great. Fridge and microwave was nice. TV options very limited. But the bed was comfy. OK - the second time we stayed in the new section which is a brick building right next to the pool. COMPLETELY different experience. The room was much nicer and newer. Very quiet. No outdoor exposure entering and exiting the room. The room was much bigger and the bathroom much nicer. Very surprised they charged us exactly the same fee for both rooms. The pool is outdoors, so wasn't in season to try that out. Nice location - close to downtown St Charles.

"Room was surprisingly nice!"

I had stayed at this property a few years ago and it was getting a little tired. I usually stay a two different hotels nearby, but both were full for this trip. I received a room in the South Building when I checked in, and I was not expecting much to be honest. The building and rooms appeared to be completely renovated and everything was very nice and clean. I was not disappointed with my stay!

"Ask for a Room in the New Updated Section!!"

14/11/2015

We have stayed at this property once before. We got a room in the newly remodeled back section. The rooms are big & spacious...much less noise and light than the rooms in the older section. Its just nicer in that back section. We recieved a room on the second level of the old section. Too much light..too much noise. You didn1`t hear nothing tucked in that back section. Rooms are much nicer back there.

"Smoking rooms"

10/11/2015

Be very careful during booking; was placed in smoking room first night and this was not identified when booking through Best Western website. Next day I requested a room change, hotel checkin clerk did not have the authority to do this and had to contact the manager/owner to get approval first.

The room was attractive, clean and spacious. The breakfast was excellent. Staff needs to tell guest of the additional seating in the basement for the overflow. Staff allowed guest to stand to eat without telling them of the extra room downstairs until after the fact.

Arpit P, Manager at BEST WESTERN Inn of St. Charles, responded to this review
Natella M. First, I would like to thank you for staying at our hotel. I also would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience we might have caused you, during breakfast.

"Very convenient and comfortable"

This hotel is close to everything and keeps improving with each stay. They are constantly do improvements. This time our beds were brand new and so comfortable! Same with sheets and bedding. There is a free breakfast of waffles or pancakes. By nice people. Next door is the Colonial for meals.

"Clean, nice room"

26/10/2015

The room was a good size. Decor was up to date. The room was very clean and neat so I was very happy. There was lots of storage/places to put our stuff in the room. My only complaints was regarding the useless hair dryer and also the water pressure in shower was very low.

"Not bad"

14/10/2015

Room was very clean, with the exception of a fair amount of dust on the tables...I assume it hadn't been rented out in awhile. The building is quite old and could really use an update. Despite this, it seems to be in good repair and well-maintained.

We stayed at this hotel last year and again this week. Pleasant and courteous staff. Clean room and bathroom was updated. Very quiet. Continental breakfast was average. Not a luxury hotel but reasonably priced and close to downtown St Charles.

"Nice Hotel"

05/10/2015

The Best Western Inn St. Charles is a Nice Hotel for the Price, you cannot find too many hotels for under $100 these days so we gave it a shot. The check in desk area was very nice looking, the young man that checked me inn looked very presentable, he was even wearing a tie which I thought was a nice touch, we got our keys and headed to our room which all have doors to the outside like an old style Inn. The outside stairwells were not too clean, we got to our room and opened the door. The bed did not have a comforter on it which was a little strange, then I set my stuff down and sat on the bed, It was VERY hard. The rest of the room was clean, nice big flat screen and the bathroom looked like brand new with nice up to date tile and faucets, and the shower the next morning was wonderful so much water pressure! Over all not a bad room just the bed was uncomfortable.

The facility was clean. The room was spacious. I loved the bed. This hotel is right on the highway which makes it accessible. It is very close to the various businesses in St. Charles which is a nice city to visit.

"old building"

no welcome. I felt like I was interrupting the office employee. no conversation. First room was in the original building. horrible smell. no ventalation. the smell was 40 years stale and made me sick within 5 minutes. I was able to change rooms. That room was very nice. looked like it was newly built.

"Wonderful experience!"

21/09/2015

Check in was very quick and when we got to our room, the beds had updated coverings and I had a very comfortable sleep. Wifi was excellent, Amenties in the bathroom were excellent. We had a very large screen updated model TV with lots of channels. Hotel is in a great location, just a mile from downtown St. Charles. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Didn't partake in their daily breakfast, it was late when we checked out. There is a wonderful restaurant, Colonial House, which you can walk to.

"Service as expected"

16/09/2015

During my stay everything was as expected. The only one thing I wish – open windows. There was so nice outside and fresh air so needed in the room. It's un logical to run loud AC unit to get fresh air when it's just outside. Lucky, you can keep front door open if you staying on the second floor …
