Because it is beyond terrible. We were looking for a hotel for three nights in the Chicago area and came across this gem. The price is right and that is what attracted us to it. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. For $65/night, we got a tiny room that stunk of smoke, mold, and mildew. There is a litany... More

This hotel does not fit the description of any listing. It is completely run down, dirty and in very poor condition. After my daughter and I checked in on a pre-paid reservation via Expedia, I found a room with no A/C, no ventilation and the heater that could not be turned off.....the night was hot and muggy. The front desk... More

I don't think I can recommend this motel. While I did stay there one night, and it wasn't horrible, to me it was just on this side of scary. Not sure about who was in the other rooms (are we ever when we stay at a motel), but I just didn't feel comfortable about something. Perhaps is was the poor... More

We wouldn't stay there again even if the Travelers Inn would pay us plus additional compensation. Disgusting carpet, dirty bathroom. We've heard our room neighbor opening cans all night long and we've heard him barf the content in the morning. And we asked for a quiet room explicitly. We booked two nights but escaped after one. People, no matter what... More

The room was tiny and absolutely filthy. The carpet looked like it had never been cleaned, and my socks were black after walking on it. There were crumbs, stains, and a few dead insects on the beds. There were marks all over the walls, and the bathroom door had several large holes in it and a loose handle.The phone and... More

Good grief. I was looking for a cheap place to stay for a bit of a family emergency. There are rather few lodgings in this area--surprising as close as it is to an airport. When I went to my room, it was well over 100 degrees inside. I called the front desk and they told me the AC had not... More

I read over the reviews of this place and find it hard to believe that people actually give this place a good rating. This review will not be a good one and I will not recommend this place to anyone. To me it was nasty, not well kept up and I myself have to say it was the worst motel... More

Back on January, this is the nice motel I stayed for on night when I enjoyed having myself some privacy and using WiFi. Suburban motels with lowest prices. I walked down to the pizza restaurant and bought myself a big slice a pizza and bottle of root beer out at night.

The motel is very decent, clean, quiet and in a good area. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom was also much better than you average motel for same price. Recommend for overnight stay for ohare. There is a couple of stores within a minutes walk as well for breakfast
