The Comfort Inn in Joliet North is likely nicer inside than one might expect. It has an indoor pool and hot tub, guest laundry facilities, a business center, and a wide variety of breakfast foods to choose from. The beds are surprisingly comfortable, providing for a great night’s sleep, and the rooms have a flat-screen TV as well as a closet that houses an ironing board and iron, should you need it. The free Wi-Fi is fast enough to allow streaming on various devices.
Movie and television aficionados will likely have Joliet prison on their to-do list, to visit the site where filming took place for The Blues Brothers and Prison Break. The prison buildings are quite impressive, but unfortunately, they seem to be abandoned and deteriorating, but someday, they could be converted to a museum. Fortunately, there are some information signboards with more info about the prison, Route 66, and Joliet in general.

I enjoyed my stay here. The room was very clean and well kept. Its conveniently near plenty of restaurants. Threw stagewas very friendly and helpful. Parking was not an issue. I will most definitely return on my next visit.
Great place to stay. Pet friendly and super nice staff and front desk. Delicious breakfast and super clean rooms. Would stay there again if necessary. If you want quiet rooms would highly recommend. Would give 10 stars
