My daughter went to school at DePaul so we frequently stay in this area of town. We generally stay at Days Inn but this time we didn't get reserved in time so we booked at the Inn at Lincoln Park. I was VERY nervous after reading reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's dated, but it's not as terrible as... More

My friend said he liked the charm and age of our room. Said it reminded him of a European hotel. Okay so it's 88 outside and same inside! Why? two reasons? One Ac is off! Two AC is clogged, and my friend mentions that it's a model from the 1970's! He had to find a way to open the front... More

Stayed a Saturday night here to attend a concert at Wrigley, easy 15-20 minute walk past many bars and restaurants. This is a nice place, I have stayed in many worse. The staff was great, friendly and informative. The building was old but the common areas were maintained. We had the small cheap room, again this is a place to... More

On the upside, this hotel is located in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago, regarded as a very safe neighborhood. Price is its primary attraction. The $30.00 per night parking charge is reasonable by Chicago standards and the included continental breakfast is above average. HOWEVER, the hotel is ancient and likely to be over 100 years old. Previous renovations cannot... More

The hotel is in a great spot, close to the action in Lincoln Park but I'm hard pressed to call it hotel. As Brent P stated it is more of a hostel than a hotel. It was clean and well kept. The rooms and beds were tiny. Everything is an add-on the a/c is a window unit, the heat is... More

On entry, the lobby was quite tired: old carpet, paint chipping, etc. Hallways and room had a old, dusty odor, but the window did open, so we could get fresh air. Everything in the bedroom was old (not quite historic), with rusty fixtures in the bathtub. We were on the fourth floor, so it took a long time on our... More

The staff is friendly and helpfull, but the rooms are a bit smelly and could use a good cleaning - but the place is quite cheap, even including a small breafast with juice, bagels and cerials. Lots of stores and eateries in the area and boystown is just a small walk away

We apologize that your experience was disappointing. Our economy rooms are small, they are 10x10 with walking space around the bed. The rooms are not previous vending rooms although they are small. Since our hotel was built in 1918, the economy rooms are not as spacious as newer hotels may be. When booking on priceline, you may select a room... More

I love this place! It is close to everything in Lincoln Park with onsite parking and is priced reasonably. It has a quaint European feel to it. I plan to stay here many more times in the future while visiting the city.
