I actually came upon the resort by accident. The company I was working for had me in town with asphalt and wal-mart nearby. Sorry not for me! Illinois Beach Resort was a short 20 min drive to the Naval Base. The setting was very relaxing and very enjoyable with the many trails through the state park and beach. With a Restaurant and Lounge on site there was no need to travel out after returning from work ,BIG PLUS the Food was of very good Quality and was mostly fresh very few items were frozen o...

Stayed for one night and it was the worst expierence of my lifetime. The rooms are old. Found a cockroach in my bath tub and there was used condoms under the bed. There was poop underneath the toilet. It was the worst room i have ever seen. Also i decided to go for a swim later at night around 7ish this young lady with colored hair was extremely rude and wouldnt give me a towel when i asked for one. The pool had a diaper at the bottom . People were drinking alcohol up there and having sex in th... Read more

My daughter had her wedding here. It is currently going through a renovation. There were stacks of mattresses in the front lobby when we arrived. Overall, it's no where near a "resort" quality of any measure. None of the amenities I requested (rollaway bed, fridge) were provided during our stay. It wasn't clear what was available in terms of use of the facilities (pool, fitness areas) so we never took advantage. I was told the gym was an additional charge and later found out it was complementary... Read more

What a nice place and it will be even better when the renovations are complete. Most comfortable bed we slept in on our whole vacation(12 nights away from home)...Food was excellent at the restaurant and the views are beautiful...Can't wait to visit again next summer!!!

This is a great spot for anyone looking to enjoy the park and lake but not camp or pay a ton. The lakeside location is fantastic with easy access to the trails in the park. The service and restaurant are on the slow side but decent (don't recommend ordering the steak, however). That said, this is an older property that needs (and I believe is getting) some upgrades. If you're looking for top notch service and amenities you will be disappointed. WiFi isn't great- we couldn't connect in the room b... Read more

This was our second visit to Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center for a class reunion. The accommodations were very nice with spacious rooms that have been recently remodeled. There are plenty of amenities with a pool and work out room, but we did not use them. The miles of beautiful beach along Lake Michigan make this a wonderful relaxing place to visit. Special shout out to Jenna at the front desk who make our group's check-in process go smoothly.

We were looking forward to a quiet getaway on Lake Michigan and were completely let down on driving into the property. I knew this was an older facility, but was not expecting the terrible disrepair and dirtiness of the property. Newly remodeled this was not. It might have had new wallpaper and such, but it was certainly not remodeled. And Certainly not for the insane price. We couldn't get out fast enough, only staying the one night out of four we had booked. We went to Chicago to stay in... Read more

We stayed at the Illinois Beach Resort as our "Christmas in the Summer" so we had 16 people in our party from 6-73. Living where we do, we knew the beachs on Lake Michigan were questionable this year, our own beaches have been lost due to higher water levels in Lake Michigan so this wasn't a surprise. We were surprised by the rooms. They appeared to be newly remodeled, but lacked attention to detail. Wallpaper hung in the bedroom was crooked, and the wallpaper in the bathroom had been 3/4 re...

My wife, daughter and I had a recent 5-day stay here during the peak summer season. We often include national or state park lodges in our vacations, so it made sense to visit Illinois Beach Resort at Illinois Beach State Park. I am reviewing this as a state park lodge and not as a ‚??resort‚??, because this is very much a government-owned park property for the masses. This location can be an acceptable choice for a couple or family ‚?? but definitely pay attention to key observations and reco... Read more

We spent one night at the Illinois Beach Resort to visit a friend who was there for their family reunion. It looks like they are currently renovating, but the renovations had not made it to the 3rd floor yet. The rooms smelled a bit strange and frankly weren't the cleanest, but it had a Keurig coffee maker and the bathroom looked to have been updated more recently. The view of the lake was outstanding however! For the price, it wasn't as nice as I expected. I don't think we will return.
