+ Cheap + Nice location: very close to the city center that can be reached by the metrorail pretty easily + not especially dirty - small room, and everything else is small - no elevator - has a generall horrible feel to it - does smell - general sketchyness

Stayed 3 nights here for an event at McCormick Place. It was an easy walk down Cermak each day (about a mile), so the location was perfect for me. The neighborhood is safe, inviting, and friendly. A lot of excellent food choices nearby, such as a Chinese bakery with $1.00 buns that are stuffed with custard or ham and eggs!... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed 3 nights in this hotel. We were in room 102, so we didn't have to haul our luggage very far. Before booking this hotel I was hesitant because of the not so great reviews it had, but my boyfriend kept reminding me that we wouldn't even be in the room very often since we... More

We were looking for somewhere cheap to stay in Chicago and this place fitted the bill. In short we got what we paid for and I was ok with that. The location is good in that its just a 2 minute walk to the subway to take you in to town. The rooms are tiny,gloomy and old but the toilet... More

For my first visit to Chicago, I want to keep it cheap (as always, because I'm cheap). Anyway, it's true, sometimes you do get what you pay for. Often I've gotten more, but not this time. It was decent enough at first. Clean enough (carpets could use replacement), no fitted sheets on the bed (just flat sheets). Air conditioner worked,... More

This is a budget hotel, quite close to the McCormick Center (15 min walk) and just at the entrance of Chinatown, close to the train and metro stations. There is no elevator so you have to carry your suitcases, the room is small and old but clean enough, it needs some renovations but if you only need a place to... More

This hotel is disgusting. This is some serious ghetto stuff. It is the worst hotel I've ever stayes at, and I've been to some gems. Where do I start? From the outside, it looks okay--the surroundings don't make for much competition in visual appeal. Chinatown is a neat little area, but it is pretty run down. Based on walking into... More

I can deal with the tiny room, and all the dated hardware, but what completely ruined it for me was the paper thin walls and the loud obnoxious patrons. It's like they were partying in the hallways. I was booked for one more night but I'm getting the hell out of here, I need some damn sleep!

Where to begin... While one of the least expensive hotels I could find on this particular weekend (booked late), it needs to be cheaper or free!! Hostles are way cleaner and have lots more to offer!! Hair, scum and dirt in bathroom! Stained carpets. No buckets for ice, no elevator, stained dirty hallway carpets, and furniture is like they picked... More
