Was in town with friends and chose this hotel based on pictures posted on a hotel booking site as well as location. The location was great, right in the center of the Mag Mile. The hotel was absolutely filthy! The rooms and hallways smelled moldy snd appeared as if they had not been cleaned in decades. I'm not sure if... More

The hotel is located at a great location, right next to Michigan Avenue. Opposite to the hotel is Seven Eleven and Dunkin Donuts (24 hours) Very convenient to all bus stops. Otherwise, the hotel is very basic, not much decoration, feels like a motel in 1980. Be aware the Parking fee is $52.00 per day , local phone calls $1.50,... More

Loved the hotel, the rooms were homey. Although some rooms did not have the same amount of furniture as others. The executive level rooms (more updated rooms) were an absolute thrill to stay in. Very new and nicely decorated. The older rooms are still nice, most with great views. The staff was an absolute thrill to work with!! Easiest hotel... More

I recently stayed at the Inn of Chicago for a three-night trip. This hotel easily had the smallest room and bathroom of any hotel I have every stayed in. I feel like for $600 that it should at least be bigger than a Microtel (or other cheap, crappy motel) room. The front desk staff was very serviceable. However, we wasted... More

Dear manamaster- Thank you for choosing to stay at the Inn of Chicago. Since we are categorized as a historic boutique hotel right off the Magnificent Mile, our guest rooms typically average between 200-300 square feet. We understand that this size is not for everyone, but we do the best we can with the space allotted. Please be aware that... More

The pictures online are of the lobby which is the best part of the hotel. The rooms are very old, small, and outdated. The worst part is my wife got bed bug bites the first night. We stayed one more night and she had several more the next day. The price was ok but not for getting bed bugs. After... More

They said that there were no other rooms available.We asked for a refund. The young lady went to the back office and... More

I am reading awful reviews and seeing pictures of stained bedding and carpet. I used Priceline and received this hotel for Just under $200 without taxes. I was happy to see where the location was as it seems to be in a great area. However, seeing the bad/horrible reviews as well as pictures of stained bedding I am diappointed. Should... More

rsherrick- As for some of the reviews that you have read...we appreciate everyone taking the time to let us know about their experience and understand that we are not a perfect fit for everyone. If the expectation of a hotel experience is a Marriott or a Hyatt experience, that is not what is found in our hotel. If the experience... More
