She threw my money at me and said "go somewhere else if you want a receipt. We don't give them till you check out" I literally had to BEG her because it was... More

I've stayed at the Bellwood several times and the location is wonderful. If there are bedbugs, they are quite discreet. The rooms are dingy but not dirty and acceptable for the price. Unfortunately I recently had an experience with staff that cancels out these borderline virtues. On the night in question they only had availability at the top of their... More

I have stayed at the Bellwood several times over the past 4 years. The manager has never been anything but polite/friendly and helpful. The staff with the exception of one person have always been friendly and kind. Yes it is not as great as the Hyatt but the price is'nt as big and the money I save staying here let's... More

I found this hotel online and contacted them as I wanted a budget hotel in the Gay Area of Chicago known as East Lake View. Several hotels came up in the area, but all of them were between $250 and $450 for a 2 night stay. The Bellwood advised they didn't take reservations and you just had to turn up... More

On my previose (first-time) visit to Chicago, I booked three nights at the next-to-cheapest place I could find, which was a traveller's hostel a couple miles from the Bellwood, , where I had one fo the worst lodging expereinces of my life. If I only had known that for a few dollars more per night, I could have gotten a... More

I really like this hotel, it is really nice and clean and has a nice price for the night. They also advertise weekly rates for $190. I and my partner wanted to rent for a week, and the application would take a day process. The Manager only shows up according to her employees once a day. Well she review our... More

How can you book a hotel in advance, regardless of reviews, if they refuse to take reservations? This may be a great deal, but it's reduced to an as-available basis on the day you want to stay there. How stupid is that?
