The village of Bradley and its neighboring areas throughout Bourbonnais Township in Northeastern Illinois predominantly feature well-known motel chains, although a small handful of locally owned, mom-and-pop-style spots are scattered about as well. These properties are light on recreation, services and amenities, but do provide easy access to local attractions like Bradley Square and the Water Tower Plaza or corporate business hubs like Peddinghaus. The generally lower-priced room rates make them ideal choices for travelers on a budget.
