Not up to Best Western Plus standards.... rude staff!
Opinión escrita el 22 de Agosto de 2021
When checking in, there was a gentleman training a gal. The example he was setting for her...heaven help the next guests! He was downright rude! Proceeded to read me a list of rules! I asked for clarification regarding the "no food or drink in the pool area", Can I take a bottle of water? His reply -- "Well, technically, that would let us keep your $150.00 deposit." I later contacted the mgr re this. His reply--it's a state health rule. Funny no other hotel I stayed at in IL has this rule!! Room was nothing great either. Bathroom door would not close. Bedside light was a bare bulb with some wires around it. Definitely NOT condusive to reading in bed. Breakfast sausage was dry, hard, and cold. Nothing here to make me come back. Recommend you choose another of the nearby properties.

Hotel staff was very accommodating and pet friendly. My stay was longer than a week and other guests and pets were friendly. The breakfast area had great food but you have to be up early . the food would be gone during weekends by 7:50 a.am. They served until 10 a.m.
Will be back

We had a great experience at the Best Western Bourbonnais. Hotel was very clean, updated and the staff was great. The pool is a nice size and the fitness center had a lot of options in it without being cramped. Location is excellent, near many restaurants and shopping options
Great pet-friendly hotel

We stayed here on a Thursday night in mid June. We booked online through the Best Western website only about an hour before we arrived. Check-in was quick and efficient. Went to our single king room on the 3rd floor, ordered take-out dinner from a restaurant down the road, and began relaxing from our long day on the road when we started to realize our air conditioner wasn't working in the room. After trying several different things, we finally called the front desk to see what could be done about the air. They apologized thoroughly and quickly changed our room to one on the 2nd floor and the air in that room worked perfectly. Besides the inconvenience of having to move all of our stuff, we were very satisfied with the speed and friendliness of which the issue was handled. Both of the rooms we spent time in had very sleek and modern furnishings and design. Bathrooms were clean, water pressure was good, beds were comfortable, plenty of pillows, and a nice desk for eating and working. My husband and I both loved the liquid soaps in the room instead of the wasteful bars of soap in most hotels.
In the morning, we were looking forward to the hot breakfast, which was one of the reasons we decided to book at this particular hotel. Some other hotel chains are still not back to serving hot breakfast due to Covid, but I had read reviews where people said this hotel was. Well, it still wasn't up to pre-pandemic hotel standards, but they did have a waffle maker, which kept my husband happy, as well as heat-n-eat breakfast sandwiches, muffins, yogurt, cereal, and juice, coffee, and milk. The breakfast attendant was very friendly and helpful.
Another thing we are always looking for is a hotel that is pet-friendly, since we often travel with our dog. This Best Western has ample outdoor space to walk pets and let them do their business, but it would be helpful if staff could point out where owners should dispose of the pet waste, just so that people know they should be cleaning up after their pets. We were very thankful also that the hotel allows dogs up to 80 lbs, since ours is 60lbs and he often is too large to meet other hotel maximums.
The hotel was close to dozens of restaurants and stores, close to the interstate, and yet far enough off the road to be quiet and relaxing. We had a very enjoyable stay here and would recommend to others, as it had a lot to offer. I would recommend that front desk be trained to point out the amenities of the hotel at check-in so guests are aware of the exercise room, the laundry facilities, the pool, the bar/lounge, and the hours of each. This was a very nice hotel.
