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...

The way I understand it, this property was converted to a Motel 6 about 6 months ago. They have done some nice renovations. My room had brand new carpet and the bathroom tiles shined. 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.

The last night in Chicago we chosed this hotel because of the location is not far from O'hare airport. It's basic so don't expect more. The room is clean though it had a rare smell but that is commonly for all super 8 hotels in the state. The staff is friendly. There is wifi in the room. A lot of... More
