Where do I even begin. The place is dilapidated. Literally looks like a bomb went off there. Hotel is nasty, dirty and a total armpit. Pulled in to see a pimp yelling at one of his girls in the parking lot. This is basically a 4 hour nap motel with sketchy people all over the place. Room was dank, and... More

The only positive thing I can say, is that it is close. The nonsmoking room had cigarette burns and stains in the bed sheets. The Walkways are littered with trip hazards and garbage. There was writing on the bathroom walls and the walls are paper thin. When asked to have the problems fixed desk personnel were polite in offering assistance... More

Sheets were stained. Hotel needed to be updated. Personnel was very nice. Breakfast was cold pastries. Very close to the Naval Base, our reason for being there. Very convenient to places like Walmart, restaurants, etc.

Not only was I afraid for my life staying in this place but now I'm afraid for my health. The walls had black mold growing on them. The shower didn't drain and was a brown color. The water in the sink didn't get hot and the toilet paper holder was ripped off the wall and set behind the toilet. I... More

We arrived at Chicago as a last minute family trip, only to find almost all hotels were sold out. We were 2 adults and 2 children so we opted for the family room. While the outside of the property could use some renovation, I can tell you that the family room we stayed at was renovated. It was clean and... More

In the process of renovating. Owner worked out issues I had and hope it is resolved. There are some things that are obviously out of his hands to manage based on location. Very good WiFi. Peek times can be a little noisey but during the week its fair for the price.
