I have stayed here twice this fall (Sept and November) because it is close to my children's apartment in Edgewater. The room was clean, small, safe although the toiletries are not adequate (no shampoo or lotion) and I had to ask for a hair drier. Breakfast was fresh. Parking area was well-lighted. Management was very accommodating when we were unable... More

Quality of Hotel is so-so, but given that price (I get it at 108 per night, which is very cheap in Chicago), it is a good choice. The nearby is safe and close to Red line, It is a bit noisy because it is close to the main street.

I chose this motel on the recommendation of friends. I especially liked the availability of parking. Check-in was friendly and perfunctory. I had not specified smoking or non-smoking, and my room had either previously accommodated smokers, or there were smokers in the adjacent room, although the smoke smell was relatively faint. I did not smell any smoke in the room... More

Stayed there for the All Blacks game. It was clean, reasonably priced, free parking and close to transit lines. It's about 45 minutes North of the Loop by train and about 15 minutes north of Wrigleyville.

I wanted to stay at someplace new on the north side of town with easy access to Wrigley field, and this is the place. The price was very affordable, free parking, a little continental breakfast, and easy to hop the bus that took us straight to the ball park. the hotel is a little older but clean. The only downfall... More

If you want a clean place to sleep that won't bust your wallet, this is the place for you! No frills at this place and the decor is in desperate need of updating but it was very clean and the beds were comfy. Definitely a good choice for a quick stay. Staff was friendly too. Neighborhood wasn't too bad either.... More

I've stayed here several times! If you're expecting a 4 star hotel, you'll be highly disappointed, but if you're looking for a clean, safe place, then you'll be fine! The place is outdated but I've never had a bad experience. Usually when I stay here, I'm not in my room that much, only usually to sleep and shower. You can't... More

Although my stay at this hotel was okay. I felt that for quality of stay offered, it was overpriced. On the good side, the hotel has free parking, it's in a safe neighborhood, and it's very clean. The down side was that it is very dated, they don't give you a lot of amenities such as an iron, and the... More

If you need to stay on the North side, this is a good bet. It's located close to Lake Shore Drive, Rogers Park, and Edgewater. It has free parking, decent breakfast, and CLEAN rooms. Walls are THIN, if you're a light sleeper.. Price is right.
