“Filming location for Trains, Planes & Automobiles”
Braidwood was featured in the film Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, starring Steve Martin and John Candy. The scene in the movie at the Braidwood Inn (now the Sun Motel) was not filmed in Wichita, but was filmed in Braidwood, Illinois. Other neighboring towns such as Coal City also briefly appeared in the movie. If you're a fan of the movie, what better way to show your love than to stay here.
The hotel is now called the Sun Motel. The screenshot from the movie isn't what it looks like now, but that's where they filmed the motel scenes from the movie.
We drove by, not really worth a stop, in my opinion.
The picture shown is NOT the actual hotel. Stopped by and was confused that it looked nothing like the picture, but the Sun Motel is it!
