2 friends and I stayed at this hotel in a triple room. During the time we checked out, there was heavy rain and we rushed out to catch the flight. The day before we shopped clothings and left the shopping bags in our rooms empty. However, 2 days after we checkout, we noticed that we forgot one of the bags... More

My husband and I switched to the ohio house motel for the second half of our trip to save some money. This motel was exactly what I had expected from reading other reviews. We actually had one of the upgraded rooms which had a newer tv, microwave, and fridge which my previous hotel, The Wit, didn't have. It's funny that... More

Thank you for staying with us. You're absolutely correct. Our guests say we are a hidden gem as well as Chicago's best kept secret. We don't do much advertising. This way we can keep our rates low. We feel our guests should spend their hard earned money for the finer things in Chicago and still enjoy our 5 star service.... More

It's cheap, affordable and it's not new. What you do get is free wifi, staff that are willing to help you and is close to all the stuff you'll do in Chicago. I personally have been impressed with the service and they've been nothing but pleasant to deal with. You get what you pay for. ... But agree with others.... More

Friendly staff and good location priced significantly lower than a Michigan Ave hotel and more to see and do in the area. clean and comfortable ample parking and no extra charges for parking which was nice.

Thank you for staying with us. The fact that we are within walking distance to all of Chicago's finest, we are able to keep our rates at a minimum, thus saving our guests more money. Our free parking saves our guests approx. $40.00 to $50.00 compared to other hotels in the area. We look forward to your next visit. More

This retro motel has a good location -- it's close to lots of things although the immediate environs are not very attractive and notable largely for a huge McDonalds -- and a kind, helpful staff but that's about it. The motel style means no lobby or other meeting space and few amenities. The rooms are OK, though the air conditioning... More

Hello. Thank you for staying with us. It's amazing that The Ohio House has stood the test of time with all of the neighborhood changes. We've been here since 1960 and still going stronger than ever. To better accommodate our guests, we will be making many upgrades to our property very soon that will eliminate these issues. We look forward... More

We chose this hotel due to it having on site parking and breakfast included in room price. We were disappointed on arrival to be given a smoking room when we had requested non smoking. Our clothes smelt of smoke and we had to buy some Febreze in order to try to eradicate the smell. We were also told that we... More

Thank you for choosing The Ohio House Motel for your stay in Chicago. I want to apologize for any issues you may have had during your stay. We had some unexpected stay overs at that time which is why a Non Smoking wasn't available at that time. Our free breakfast is a reward we give our guests when they book... More

I am not at all the city person, but there were a lot of things I wanted to see in Chicago, so I finally just bit the bullet and went for a visit. This was such a great find as far as a place to stay goes. Only four or five blocks from the loop, and there's the trolley tour... More

Check it went fine and the room was clean. Even though they control the A/C from the main office I found the room at a comfy temp. Wi-FI worked perfectly no issues. Friendly staff. Rooms had a fridge and a microwave. Nice place and close. Within walking distance of chicago Union station(about 1.8 miles).
