Heads Up! After a two year hiatus, Illinois Beach Hotel is opening our doors under new management. While we continue to make improvements, do light construction, accept deliveries and work with our staff we will have a limited number of rooms open for reservations. We would love to see you, but please realize this is a soft opening and all the amenities may not be in place yet.

The Lake Front Destination

Located conveniently between Chicago and Milwaukee, the hotel is known for locally sourced comfort food and inviting accommodations set against the beautiful backdrop of the Lake Michigan sunrise.

Guest rooms are comfortable and reflect the original styling of the hotel with a distinctly modern feel. Guests can choose from a variety of room types many of which offer sweeping views of Lake Michigan or the natural beauty of Illinois Beach State Park. The hotel also offers guests an excellent dining option at its new restaurant, Nolan’s. The hotel features accessible rooms and suites suited for any of occasion.

Beautiful views and outstanding food I can not say enough about the view of the beach, just breathtaking! The rooms are spacious, clean and updated. I would highly recommend having a Nolan burger at the restaurant, exceptionally delicious and cooked perfectly!

Well worth the wait! My family has been wanting to stay at this hotel for 4 years. Covid hit, so we held off on traveling. We were devastated when we learned that the hotel closed , and over joyed when we heard it reopened! I cannot speak highly enough of the kindness of the staff at this hotel. The view is absolutely amazing, and the meal we had at nolans was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back, and be back monthly if possible! This hotel is a hidden treasure, and the amount of potentialthis property has is exciting. Extra special thank you to Michael , the bar tender at nolans for being so kind and going above and beyond to make our night special. Highly recommend this hotel!

A Great Anniversary Trip! We came to Illinois Beach Hotel to stay for our anniversary. We called a few weeks ahead of time to ask for some special requests, and despite the fact they were still getting ready to open, they went above and beyond to fulfill everything we asked after. The views from our room were spectacular, and you can’t beat the location right on the beach, in a beautiful state park - especially for the reasonable price point. Nolan’s was fabulous, and we were able to get a romantic table set aside for us overlooking the water. The manager was kind and accommodating, and shared with us all of the new, exciting things in store for the future of the hotel. Overall, it was an unforgettable weekend, and we will be back soon!

Lovey location We stayed there shortly after the hotel reopened in July 2022 and enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel is bright and clean with warm and welcoming staff, but the real star is the location. Try to get a room with a view of Lake Michigan if you can and be sure to allow time to explore the park and beaches. Note that this is a hotel, not a high-end resort, but it’s very special nonetheless. We would definitely stay there again.

Error in their desciption Their description says they are located IN Zion. No so. They are in unincorporated Lake County. The village limits of Beach Park are closer to the park than Zion is. Beach Park's corporate limits go down Wadsworth Rd to the UP railroad tracks. The closest Zion gets to the hotel is the passage between Lucy's Appliances and Hilleary's BBQ on Sheridan Rd.
