We stayed here solely because it's down the street from Recruit Training Command. Yes, the hotel is run down but it's inexpensive, has a very friendly staff and a comfy bed. We were pleasantly surprised to find a refrigerator and a microwave in our room. The water pressure in the shower was lacking but at least the water was hot.... More

There was not one nice thing about this hotel. The beds were horrible. Even the picture on the TV was bad. The wifi barely worked. The furniture was broken. Some of the lamps had the cords cut. I saw cockroaches in the shower, which by the way was also disgusting. Our nightstand was broken, the towel rack was broken and... More

We booked online... We arrived a day early so we thought we would just stay there... We unloaded, looked around... We were immediately grossed out. We ate (after a long ride from out of state) we set out to find another hotel... After am exhaustive search we found another one... We went to ask for our money back and we... More

This hotel is raggedy and needs a serious overhaul. It's not the worse place I've stayed but it comes in the top 5. The carpet is dirty, the furniture is hanging on by a thread. This hotel is 40-50 mins away from Downtown Chicago. If you leave and comeback, make sure you pack your belongings in your car while you're... More

My original room assignment had to be changed because the bathroom stool seat was cracked and there was no where to hang my clothing. I was given another room on the second floor. That room was much better although I had to go to a hardware store to buy stoppers for the basin and the bath tub. I like to... More

We stayed here because it is close to The Navy Recruit Training Base! Never again, very cheap and dirty! Noise from rooms with people coming in at all hours of the night. I had a kindle stolen while staying there, and only response, we never had this happen before. Telephone was not hooked up in my room either. We stayed... More

I had a great stay at this motel it was a clean and comfortable room. The price was GREAT and the Staff was excellent. 1 mile from the Navy Base and there is a Sports Bar and Grill in the parking lot that was good. I enjoyed my stay it is a older motel but it was good
