The hotel is pretty worn in some areas, although room carpets looked new and bedding was good. Excellent for a stopover at Chicago. The kindness and personal attention of the staff here was great starting with the personable man who picked us up at the airport with a very clean family van, and treated us like it was a limo....

The first room when we had when we got there when we turned to shower to hot the water would turn off. We got moved a second non-smoking room that smelled like smoke. Our third room was ok but there were no towels. There were drunk people in the hallway from the bar and club which is connected to the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We have stopped leasing out the Bar and now have taken total control of it and are" classing up the joint"! We have our Maintenance staff deep cleaning all the hallways and rooms. We hope you will come back in the near future to see all of our new improvements. More

I've stayed at hundreds of choice hotels in north america and have never experienced 1 as bad as this 1. The hotel itself is old, run down and a little scary. We arrived at night and were frankly a little scared, was just myself and my son. The lock on the door didn't seem very secure. We got stuck for... More

Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns. We recently have taken this hotel over under new management. We are emptying our pockets to make upgrades. Choice Hotels is proud to see all the improvements. Though we don't rent rooms by the hour because we are not that kind of hotel we do charge 1 night only. Sometimes... More

Sure it's $55 a night on hotels.com and that's where the benefit ends. There are plenty of better hotels in the area and they are more expensive but just read some of the other reviews. Prostitution? Check! Drugs? Check! Filth? Check!

Alies2011, Thank you for taking the time to review our newly improved property. I have checked into your inquiry and would like to take a moment to clarify.

We (myself, husband and 1 yr old) arrived at the hotel around Midnight. When you walk into the lobby all you hear is loud music from the club that is right in there. The parking lot is full of party goers not to mention drug users and prostitutes. As we were walking into the hotel there was a Shemale soliciting... More

Staying here was a result of a last-minute reservation and not doing my homework and reading tripadvisor reviews. We made the mistaken assumption that we'd be relatively safe choosing a branded hotel to rest our heads for a few hours after a late flight. In this case, we were looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel with an airport shuttle that... More

Drunk and high people staggering around lobby and hallway was dark and smelled. We wondered if our car would still be there in the morning! Sheets were clean but rest of room was dirty. If it hadn't been 2am when we arrived we would have left. Staff were friendly but I can't recommend this hotel. Stay somewhere else.

My flight was cancelled late night and hotels near the airport were booked. Expedia arranged for a night at this hotel. I did not read the reviews before catching the shuttle and checking in. Here's the positive: free wifi, the night shuttle driver was nice, and the front desk clerk was kind. Here's the bad: I did not feel safe... More
