This motel is very well located, and the rooms are clean. However what bothers me is the fact that we were given an other room than we reserved. We reserved a non smoking room with queensize bed, and recieved a smoking room with two beds. After I checked my email from the booking website, I asked staff for an explantion... More

I got bitten by bed bugs in this motel. I really wish I hadn't stayed this place. Now I'm paranoid if I brought the bugs home with me. Location is good but room was cold ( no heat ) and card key was dysfunctional.

We arrived early the day and had a early check in. Even if upon our first day there were some issues with our room cleaning (sheets were dirty as well the room ground and the bathroom tube had bad issues) everything was fastly corrected after talking to the manager. For the price you pay you have a good and fair... More

Location great, rooms ok but very limited internet which keeps phasing in and out. Just not good enough if you need to work or want to Skype. A lick of paint, a coffee kettle or new carpets would also go a long way.

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

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
