The room was perfect in size for four people the bathroom was a great size - overall the space was just fine. The location is perfect - being originally from the area it's a perfect retreat that is close to... More

I just returned from Chicago, and I spent 3 nights in this hotel. Other reviewers have commented on the size of the rooms, and they're right. The rooms are small, and there's not much shelf space in the bathroom. However, I found the place to be clean and comfortable, and very convenient to shopping, the park, theaters, and restaurants. I... More

In 40 years of traveling around the world, this is the worst place ever. Do not stay here. Terrible disrepair -- stained carpet, cracked tile, 10 years overdue for paint, broken lamp, leaking shower faucets, broken bathroom shelf. 25-yr-old TV. Linens are not changed daily. Had to sit sideways on toilet due to cramped bathroom. No iron or ironing board... More

I was disappointed with the hotel because the room was very small. I felt cramped. The bathroom is so small that you must close the door to use the facilities, and there is no where to place bathroom items. The reason that I chose the hotel is that it's in an area with park, etc. close by. But as it... More

Have stayed here three times in the lat year when the less expensive Days Inn lincoln park was booked. First stay was okay. Last two where horrible. The elevator is not well maintained and the rooms are worse. Burnt out lightbulbs, ancient bedframes, and a lamp cord that shocked me are enough to keep me away. If you're looking for... More

My husband and I stayed here during Memorial Day Weekend, and found the hotel to be quite pleasant. This hotel was great for the price and location. It's almost on the corner where Diversey, N. Clark, and Broadway meet. Just up the street from the El Train, and bus stops are a hop, skip, and a jump away. The hotel... More

I have stayed at this hotel at least twice an year for the last 8 years, last in June 2002. Located in an old converted building the rooms are quaint and. although some of the fixtures are antique, the Hotel is kept very clean by the excellent mostly Polish staff. The rooms vary greatly in size (and correspondingly in price)... More
