This place is right by the Des Plaines river. Mold throughout the room. Smelled musty. The recliner was broken. NO FACIAL TISSUE!! Bath towels were small, and had to fight with staff to get extra. The maids did a great job of cleaning, the bed was fresh daily.

Hotel is a good value for the money. You have to limit your expectations for a hotel costing $40 a night based on a weekly stay. Hotel is older, the rooms do show this, but they are kept clean, and seemingly well maintained. I had an extended stay there for business, and found everything to be satisfactory. My room was...

It was clean and just what I needed. The value was tremendous. The neighborhood was safe. I actually walked to the bar next door, "Players", for... More

The staff at night and in the morning were great. They gave me change in the morning for the stupid Illinois tolls and she was extra friendly. The room was very clean and nice and the price was great. Great location and very secure area.

Beautiful night to have the window open but can't because someone is smoking beneath. But other than that the hotel is very nice. No odors that others have complained about. Breakfast rooms are very tiny but oh we'll. friendly front desk person.

The room had a very moldy smell....unpleasant to be in. Also the hair dryer did not work. I didn't have the time to request a new hair dryer and the hassle. I will never recommend or stay here again.
