this was a very interesting place that we stayed at during out trip. We arrived here at around 3am due to a horrible crash on the i-80. There was plenty of parking but a very shifty feel to the place and area. Whist waiting for the gentleman infront of us to check in, we over heard his conversation which wasn't... More

In June of this year we were on our way to Toronto, On. Canada by car, and wanted to spend 3 days visiting Chicago, IL, since we had never been there. We booked the 3 days at this motel as it was shown to be near a Subway line to and from downtown Chicago and also had no idea how... More

Beautiful enclosed hotel. If you're looking to save a couple bucks, this is the place. Great, I mean, GREAT customer service. The owner treated us like her own family. She said if we would choose to stay here again, she would upgrade us to the suite, for the same value as a one bedroom!!!! Definitely will stay here in the... More

If you are looking for value....then look no further. This isn't a hotel but a motel. Looks great in pictures on the outside but wait till you walk up to courtyard/parking lot. This appears to be a very scary side of town. The rooms were straight from 1960. The saving grace was Pearl's, the diner attached to the hotel. I... More

Find another location!! Location and service were both eye-brow raising. I had to look twice when I saw the receptionist scratch my credit card (with another plastic card) to gather my card info. The room was a huge disappointment...torn sheets/pillow cases, a stained ironing board cover, filthy carpet, and mold (or soap scum) around the caulking of the tub. Staying... More

Small clean place with FREE parking! The place is nothing fancy but the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We wanted to get to Chicago's miracle mile and they were quite helpful in getting us there. Room was clean but air conditioner and some type of grinding noise was noted in the evening that kepted my son up late into... More

This was my first trip to Chicago and I was happy to have found this gem of a hotel. Robin is a wonderful hotel manager and she made us feel like family. The staff was friendly, accomodating and very informative. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. I appreciated the secure parking on the property and it was FREE. This... More

I just returned from a 3 night stay with a friend. Do not go here expecting a 5-star Hilton stay. However, you can expect a clean motel room with a comfortable bed and an attentive staff at a great price. This motel is just one block from the CTA station--you really can't beat that! I never felt unsafe walking from... More

For some reason, Chicago hotel prices were astronomical the Friday, Saturday, & Sunday we stayed here in May. The rate we got was a third of what we would have paid had we stayed in the Loop. The Inn is just two Green Line stops (8min.) from downtown. The station (Indiana) is a short block and a half away. Our... More
