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.

I used to stay at Wrigleyville hotels in the 90s but now they have become incredibly expensive. For about $100 a night this hotel is clean if dated, conveniently located if difficult to get into. I like the location but maneuvering the first time to get into the parking lot is extremely difficult. Best is to forget Ridge avenue and... More

It took me a good while to research a motel far away enough from Chicago to have a satisfactory rate yet have good access to a train station for easy travel to the city centre. This is the one I settled on for three nights. The entrance is on a road with the usual and divided 2 lane carriageways that... More

In a shady part of Chicago, comes an even shadier motel that doesn't even bother to spell out all the words. "Heart O' Chicago" I mean, serioulsly, would it have been that much harder to add an "f" to the word "of"? In a room with only 2 towels, and no extra covers at all, you will be amazed by... More

I stayed here for two nights while visiting Northwestern University with my son. This is exactly what you hope for in a hotel: decently comfortable beds, a television, air conditioning and locking doors and windows. It's clean - I didn't smell smoking or anything else. Reasonably quiet at night. The person at the front desk was friendly and efficient. The... More

The guy running it was so lovely! But I guess it's not the motels fault it's in a shabby area. I was travelling with my Dad and he was kept awake all night with the goings on in the room beside him, culminating in armed assault, police, the whole works. We left the next day only to find that maybe... More

My best friend and I stayed her for 4 nights. Its a basic motel no extras except free parking (thank goodness!) The man that checked us in took was friendly and nice. Appreciated the mattress covers to keep bed bugs away. Breakfast was cold ceral, donuts, muffins,oatmeal packages, o.j, coffee and whole milk. I just wish there was a fridge... More

After reading other reviews and searching for a reasonably priced hotel in the area we decided to stay here. My experience was just what I expected for the price. This Hotel/Motel was $60-$70 cheaper than anything else we could find near Wrigley Field. Plus, there was free parking! We knew that we weren't going to be hanging out at the... More
