I wasn't totally sure what to expect based on their rates, which were the lowest in the area. I am assuming their locations are comparable, however. So if you need a bed and a place to cook your own meals on a modest budget, Extended Stay is definitely an option. It has the basics, but my sense is by the... More

I was not able to complete my stay here due to the smell. The gentleman who checked me in gave me a new room but it smelled just as bad. The white pillows were a yellow tint and smelled of sweat! The whole hotel smells musty. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone under any conditions.

The accommodations at the Skokie Extended Stay are perfect for the business traveler. The rooms have enough space to work, relax and entertain--especially with the on-board kitchen and full height fridge. The property is clean, quiet and even has a laundry room. The staff is friendly--and makes every effort to make your stay pleasant. This location is a great alternative... More

I was a little leery to stay here based on the reviews. It turned out to be a very nice hotel, they checked me in to a clean room with a kitchen that had granite counter tops. I did not cook during my 2 night stay but I think someone traveling for a long time would really dig the kitchen.... More

I stay here frequently, and this time was a first to experience bedbugs. The staff was very apologetic and moved me to another room for the rest of my stay. They did indicate that this had been a problem "once or twice" before and were having the exterminator return.

We spent two nights here, and were not too impressed. Even though the front desk folks were very good, the rest of the place needs some re-doing. There is a no smoking policy, yet our room rug had two cigarette burns. So it has been some time since that has been up dated. The towels had a nice texture, and... More

I feel awful leaving a bad review, but this hotel was a disaster. I booked it knowing that it was a budget hotel but everything else in the area was booked so I thought I'd give it a shot. We arrived for check in and it took a little while longer than it should have to get keys to our... More

After many internet searches for hotels in Chicago, my girlfriend and I decided to stay outside of town in Skokie. I must say we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, nice size rooms, microwave, stove and fridge was nice as well; although, the bathroom could use some updating. Staff was friendly, grab and go breakfast was just... More
