For the most part the people that "worked" there were trying. But as with the whole nation they were overwhelmed. We didn't get to check in until one plus hours after check-in time. We had to argue our way out of higher that expected bar bill because I looked like some else that made a order. The room numbering system they use is unlike no other. Our room was nice, but the batteries on the thermostat were flashing low ,the stool didn't flush so i went to the front desk waited 20 minutes for someone to even show their face at the front desk.(How do you leave a front desk unoccupied that long?) I was told they would give me a plunger and if that didn't work tomorrow morning a technical person would look at it or we could then change rooms. I repaired the toilet myself because I'm a handyman. The next morning there is sheets and towels spread on the floors by the hotel entrance and the check-in desk. A REALLY TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Returning home to Chicago for a couple of days, this hotel failed & disappointed the Holiday Inn name. This 'franchise' starting with the front desk and it's manager were beginning of problems. The room's thermostat was found to be not working-loudly denied by a front desk manager (Patty?) - the coffee machine was also not working - both were finally fixed and rectified when the only one maintenance member/worker returned to work on the weekday. Decaf coffee was also not available and could not even get a comb, despite the displayed 'Hospitality Promise/Forget Something?' small sign in the bathroom. The shower/tub also had the drain plug sitting loose in the tub. For the high price charged, this was shabby.

Response from IHG Service, Owner at Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago North Shore (Skokie), an IHG hotel
Responded 6 days ago
Hello W6273TMbonniea, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We're committed to providing an exceptional experience, and it seems that it didn't happen this time. I'm sorry to hear about the maintenance issues with the room's thermostat, coffee machine, the lack of decaf coffee, and comb put a damper on your stay. I brought this up to our local management's attention along with your feedback regarding the quality of service taken in addressing this. I'm certain that the necessary corrective actions will be discussed with the team, so better service will be sorted out. We're grateful to have you as one of our valued guests. I hope you'll consider us again in your future travel plans! All the best, Jomar M. Case Manager IHGService

We arrived on a Thursday evening for a 4 night stay, and were given a room facing into the interior pool complex, no natural light. The phone in the room didn't work, there was nothing in the room to give the phone number of the hotel. I did find it on-line and called the front desk to ask for pillows ( there were only 2 on a king size bed) and to ask about changing rooms. I got the pillows but nothing about moving. In the morning I asked about the room change and got no guarantee, but later did hear that we could move, and we did. Still no operable windows, but at least light! The property as a whole is poorly maintained. Common areas are shabby ( duct tape on the carpet edge where it meets a tile area), floors dirty and the elevator only occasionally cleaned of abandoned water bottles and trash on the floor. Large, rolling tubs for dirty linen and for trash stood in the hallway all day, every day I was there. The carpet in the hallway was never vacuumed, and the chocolate cake that a guest dropped on Friday was still there, although walked through and spread around, on Monday. I told the front desk and again told one of the managers in person about the dirty carpet but nothing was done. The two positive things I can say about this property are the location. If you need to be both in Chicago and the northern suburbs this is a very convenient location, easy to get on and off of the 94 highway and other major streets. And, the room was large, if poorly lit and poorly ventilated. The bathroom has a good mirror/lighting arrangement and was functional. Except for the toilet which was at a height I associate with a kindergarten classroom! There will be no more stays at this place for me! I'd rather travel an extra 15 minutes and spend more than endure this place again.

Your night shift manager GENE is the best thing your hotel has going for it. Every other employee I encountered was substandard, rude, or in Ana's case incompetent. I have a 70% hearing loss from birth, communicating In person can be difficult, on the phone is a daunting task at times. Gene paitently, repeated himself numerous times for me giving me the address and other information I needed to reserve a room at your holiday Inn. Once I arrived, Gene was helping another guest, I drew the short straw and got Ana. Who did nothing but stare at her computer,punch buttons and accomplished nothing. 20-30 minutes later she asked Gene what to do. About 3 minutes later, Gene had my room keys in my hand and with his most beautiful smile a thank you for staying with us. My room was not clean but I had just completed a 900 mile trip and was exhausted so I overlooked the dirty and unsanitary conditions and went to sleep. I rise early and take my coffee outside only to find Gene still manning his post. Its approximately 0530, Gene is wearing the same big smile I saw the previous evening and he bids me good morning. I couldn't bring myself to say anything negative about the room for I felt lucky to have encountered this fine young man. I write to you not to complain , but rather to inform you what an absolute Gem of an employee you are blessed to have. He is dressed sharp, clean, articulate, extremely efficient and very pleasant. Please give this young man the support staff he needs to manage your hotel, he deserves adequate help and there's none to be found. You help him and I promise you he will make you proud one day.

I spent two continued weeks in this hotel and I got a very bad experience. I don’t even know where to start with, as the encountered issues and discomforts were a lot and almost recurring day by day. First off, this hotel is almost in a “state of abandonment”, with very bad state of maintenance of rooms tools, continued lack of cleaning of the common areas, corridors and elevator which are always always always dirty and full of litter. I have some pictures show what I daily saw for two continued weeks, passing through the mentioned common areas. Of course, these pictures represent just one captured instant, but I swear that they show what I daily saw in such spots, meaning that no housekeeping, cleanings and on top sanitization were performed along two continued weeks. The front side elevator is very dirty, in bad state of main and constantly constantly smells as an old and never sanitized garbage curb, with frequent vomiting hits while using it. This is unacceptable and quite offensive of the guests, considering that we are still in the middle of the pandemic and such a lack of housekeeping, cleaning and sanitation may significantly increase the risk to get the virus (honestly this is the standard I may expect in an hostel or drive in motel, but not really at one of the IHG hotel). Within my room, the shower curtain pole is flowed down because it is almost close to get detached from the wall. Consequently, the curtain does not cover the shower side (because it flows down as well towards the center of the pole) and the bathroom floor gets always flooded. I again complained with the front desk personnel who told me that they couldn’t deal with that, because “not depending on them”, so they neither opened a ticket with the internet service provider, not tried so solve somehow this issue. Wi-Fi worked very bad for all the period, with few signal rate and also moving very close to the door where my iPhone and iMac devices shows a full signal rate, in reality it was very inefficient and the 70% of my business and private video calls failed to properly streaming incoming and outgoing videos, and sometimes audio as well. Last but not least, the Bar Louie inside the Hotel that is providing the daily breakfast. My first breakfast was on Sunday. There’s a menu to choose the breakfast covered by the hotel, but this does not include the orange juice, which has to be paid apart. $4 for a bad orange juice made with concentrated syrup and tap water, which should be paid every day. Of course I complained immediately with the hotel and at least I got this as complimentary item for free, but my expectation when I book a room at IHG site which includes the breakfast is that either an orange juice is included, or this is clearly stated in a disclaimer in the reservation form to warn the customers that this item is not included in the cost. Beyond this, the personnel took 1 hour to prepare a couple of eggs, bacon and farm fries, while the number of customers was below 10. The day after (Monday) which is a business day, I showed up to the bar at 7am (i.e. opening time) and the bar was closed, and remained closed until 7:35am with no reason and front desk person not providing a valid explanation. At that point, I just asked to get some fruit to take in my room as at 8:00am I had a business web-conference. When I got back in my room and opened the fruit container, I got a very bad experience. The fruit was completely rotten with evident residuals of an ongoing fermentation and a disgusting smell. Of course I complained with the receptionist and I got that and all future breakfast included in the booking returned on my credit card, but again this was shocking me at an IHG hotel. Holiday Inn Skokie is not meeting the current standards for almost all Holiday Inns I visited, it’s an old fashion structure, with old furnishes in the rooms and bad state of maintenance. But it costs the same price, or even more, of other Holiday Inns with a better standard. I may ensure that the disappointment that I got when I first accessed to the reception, the elevator (with such a disgusting smell) and in the room was very high, as I expected the typical standard we all Holiday Inns guests are used to.
