We spent a night on our way back from Wisconsin at the Country Inn and Suites in Zion, Illinois. The location is off the highway a bit, near Illinois Beach State Park.
The rate for the room that Saturday night would have been $139 plus tax so I instead redeemed 15,000 Club Carlson points for our stay.
The hotel has a beautiful pool area and a large hot tub. Several Chairs to watch family, there is not food allowed in the pool area.
We were upgraded to a great studio room. 2 queen beds and a sleeper sofa in the living area. There was also a small sink, mini fridge and coffee pot to the right across from the bathroom.
For 15,000 points the hotel was a great value. The hotel is 12 miles from Gurnee Mills outlets. Or 9 miles to the Jelly Belly distribution site in Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin. And 10 miles to Six Flags Great America.
