Yes, a really great location in the middle of everything. And yes, very helpful staff (if you could get through to them - there obviously were conventions in Chicago going on, so reception was permanently crowded - heavily understaffed and cramped, but staff still nice). I had a very small room on the third floor, dark, the smallest possible window,... More

This hotel was smack-dab in the middle of everything! It's clean, the beds are comfy, the AC was cold, and the shower is hot with good water pressure. What more could you want in a hotel? It's not fancy, there are no frills, but for a clean, comfy room to sleep and hang out in after a day of sightseeing,... More

If you are on a budget this hotel will be perfect. The location can't be beat since it is located in the middle of Michigan Ave. If you are looking for glamour this hotel is not for you. The bathrooms are very small and almost impossible to get ready in especially for women. However the room was spacious with room... More

Got a great rate for so close to Mag Mile (30 sec walk) and desk and hotel staff were always polite and helpful. Room was smallish and in rough shape, though it felt clean and no cleaning solution smell.Yay! The furniture is worn, carpet pretty old and dated (but clean). Bath had marble floor, new tiny sink. Bed was comfortable.... More

I didn't visit the hotel. I booked it through Priceline for 8 nights and due to sickness I couldn't go. I was appalled by their lack of empathy. I called the night before my trip and again the day of my trip and they didn't want to return any money for the 8 nights I booked the hotel even if... More

When booking one of the most affordable hotels in the premier location of any major city, you have to be ready for a less than 5 star experience. However, the pleasant and friendly staff at this place made it as good as we could reasonably expect. The rooms were small, but functional. The lobby bar was cramped and the hours... More

neslryan- The Inn of Chicago is one of the best values in downtown Chicago, right off the major Magnificent Mile and Ohio Street intersection. We appreciate you acknowledging our friendly service and affordable rates. Glad our team was able to retrieve your shoes and send them to you so quickly! We hope to serve you again soon. More

Incredibly surly and unhelpful night staff (evening of 7/7/14). Yes it is possible to cope with the relatively poor and non-updated facilities because one gets what one pays for, and this is cheapish and with a good location. But customer service and basic decency costs little.

This hotel is old, needs some spiffing up, but is located in a great spot - walk to many fabulous places. Small rooms. Terrace on the top floor was great - we had a nightcap there every night. Wifi in the lobby only - really in downtown Chicago? Expected it in my room.

We booked this hotel at the very last minute through my employers 'workperk' program and got a very good rate. My husband and I travelled with our two teenaged children. The location is excellent. The rooms, a little dated and a small washroom, but it met our needs. We were on the 15th floor and I felt our room was... More
