Great Pool Area! A review of Clock Tower Resort

Our family (2 adults, a 16 year old and 10 year old) recently spent a great night at the Best Western Clocktower on our way through Rockford. I had chosen this hotel for 2 main reasons: 1) it had gotten good reviews on this site 2) I had driven 550 miles that day, and I wanted a hotel that was right off the highway, and easy to find. I did not want the hassle of trying to locate the hotel after such a long day.

I was very pleased with how easy it was to locate, and the parking was excellent, many spots available.

The service was quick and polite at the front desk, and they were able to get us the adjoining rooms I had previously requested.

The rooms were clean and nicely laid out. Nothing fancy, but for the price it suited our needs perfectly.

The pool area was terrific though. They had a hot tub, and large swim area with a slide. It also included one of those dew drop fountains, "lily pads" for trying to cross, and a large rubber water snake thing that was mounted to the bottom of the pool. To top it off, it wasn't all that crowded. Nothing spoils a good pool like it being over crowded. Perhaps it is busier at other times, but our visit in Mid August was perfect.

The lobby was attractive as well.

All in all, highly recommended, especially if you have children who enjoy a good pool area.
