We had a wonderful stay at Old Chicago Inn this weekend. The room was comfortable, clean, secure. We had a room with a private bath, which was small but suited us just fine. David was wonderful, helpful, and knowledgeable. The price was right on point, and surprisingly affordable for a Cubs home game weekend! When we go back to Chicago... More

We stayed in room 2A on a recent visit to Chicago, 2 adults, 1 baby and a dog. OCI is in a great neighborhood with tons of things in walking distance, including the train. Daily parking was free, which was great but be prepared to drive around for a while trying to find a spot and then walk at least... More

We enjoyed the hospitality of the innkeeper, the walkability of the neighborhood, and the easy and free parking. Our room was large and clean. We live in an old home, so we loved the historic features. We had a private bath. We would stay again. It was nice to be away from the busy downtown area.

David is a very knowledgeable and friendly innkeeper. Having never been to Chicago, he helped us with various directions to get around the city, as well as activity suggestions. The location is in a nice area that is also close to various public transit options. The entire building is very beautiful, lots of woodwork. The morning breakfast was held in... More

The room was nice and clean but didn't like sharing the bathroom. Also, there was a huge mold problem and you had to take your own towel and soap or keep sanitizing wipes in your room. Kept the front door locked all the time. Quiet area and not too far from activities and restaurants.

Just stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it. The place is simple with not a lot of frills, but at a good price. Offers a nice continental breakfast down in the Speakeasy room, of which offers period drinks and blues and jazz music (music offered a couple times per Month). Lots of period pictures and memorabilia from the 1920s... More

My wife and I moved out of our Lakeview apartment last night and needed a place to stay before we could get into our West Town apartment. Old Chicago Inn was the right call. The inn keeper, David, was a delight during our check in, showed us to our room The space was perfect for grabbing a late afternoon nap... More

This hotel is near to the Belmont CTA Station (Red line) and there are some good restaurants and very lively bars close by. However, the property needs updating if it's to match the charges we paid. The doors were so poorly hung that operating the locks was very difficult and whilst our room (3A) was very pleasant, it had not... More

We were visiting our son in Chicago and wanted someplace within walking distance of a red line station. This property is close and in an area full of restaurants. David is a great host. We arrived early so he kept our luggage until our room was ready and then even carried it all up to the room on the third... More
