I stayed at this hotel with a Choice Hotels employee discount and even for under $50 this is by far the WORST hotel I have ever stayed in. There is zero parking. I had to park almost a block away in a dark "parking lot" behind the building. I could not see my car from the room or from the... More

I recently got out of the Marine Corps and have been actively looking for jobs and apartments. When I first checked in I requested two nights then kept extending from there. After about a week from my initial check in and employee tells me that after Friday I can no longer stay in the motel to make room for other... More

This hotel did not look anything like the picture on its website. The hotel is rundown and out-of-date. There was one ice machine on the premises, in the office of the hotel. There was a blood stain on the bedspread and also a stain on the blanket. There was also no alarm clock in the room and we received one... More

If you're looking for a place with free parking on the South side of Chicago that is within a half hour drive of downtown then this place will suffice. I really just needed a clean bed and bathroom and this place had that. The breakfast was so-so, but if you're looking to get food in a hotel rather than downtown... More

Rooms are ok. They are clean which is a good start. Towels are tiny and not very good quality. Also, no fridge or microwave. Breakfast is pretty sad. Little choice available. Pool is ok but changing rooms are not the cleanest The most disturbing part of the stay was the strange guy in the wheelchair who keeps looking in your... More

I had a terrible experience with choice hotels. We booked a room with Rodeway Inn in Lyons Illinois. It's was pouring down rain when we arrived or else I would have requested to see the room because from the outside (which didn't look a damn thing like the pics online) it was sketchy at best. Once we checked in a... More

The room assigned to us had a musty smell (No smoking Room). The place was dark and dirty. Even the parking lot was not well equipped with enough lights. The parking lot was eerie as if anytime you will be mugged (that kind of feeling!). Thank God we only stayed for a night because the experience in that Inn was... More

i checked in at 8:30 p.m. the parking lot was full, unless you wanted to walk to the back lot. It was raining and dark. The room smelled like cigarettes (this was a none smoking room). The toilet paper roll was almost empty, I had to go out in the rain to get roll of toilet paper for the front... More
