The Lake Front Destination

Illinois Beach Hotel is the only hotel in the state that is nestled along the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan offering its guests a unique experience, which no other hotel in the area can provide. 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.

Hotel guests can step out of the lobby to stroll the shores of Lake Michigan, enjoy playing in the waves or just lounge on the sand and soak up the sun. The expansive lobby features floor to ceiling windows displaying beautiful views of the lake shore. 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.

Illinois Beach Hotel offers guests the opportunity for a special beach retreat without the necessity of a passport.

Illinois Beach Hotel surpassed my expectations with the huge king suite including a large jacuzzi tub and shower. There was also a nice sized mini fridge and microwave. The view was beautiful, and we loved walking along the beach and sitting on the balcony.

Matt

Service, location and staff were all amazing! The suite was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom came with both a rainforest shower and jacuzzi tub. The views of Lake Michigan were phenomenal! Explore Illinois Beach State Park and hike the Dead River trail. So peaceful and relaxing.

Vince

Highly recommended. Beautiful view and rooms were cleaner than all the other hotels I’ve been to in the last year.

Barbara

I’m so glad the hotel has reopened. I have not been inside yet. However, the beaches are beautiful with all the upgrades the park has made. Feels like you’re in the Caribbean.

The Hidden Gem is Back Excited this wonderful, hidden gem is back up and running brilliantly. Years ago I hosted seminars here and it became a special place for family and friends. Check it out! Kudos to Trina-Sales Mgr, Ryan-Desk, Servers Carol & Dawson (bar too). The food is delicious. Try the salmon or the fish & chips with walleye. The views cannot be beat!

Amazing view and staff The room was great (a couple of minor issues, but excellent for a soft open) with an amazing view of Lake Michigan. The staff was quite friendly and knowledgeable. Each one went out of their way to acknowledge us. We only had the opportunity to have one meal at Nolan's, but the food ans service were both good.

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!
