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 The place is outdated but I've never had a bad experience.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.

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
