When checking out they put an additional day authorization on my card when I found out called the manager to ask why she said just wait a few days to let it stop off and then hung up on me twice without ever answering my question why when I paid in full. It has changed to choice hotel and did... More

This was not my choice. A family member insisted we stay overnight outside of Chicago instead of just driving home, and this was the hotel selected. It is old and noisy, right next to the Tollway. There was an unpleasant smell when we entered our room, and my legs started to itch when I got into bed. I thought surely... More

Yes, the property is older. Yes, it could be updated. BUT, if you're coming up to head to Chicago? You really can't beat the location or price of this hotel. We've stayed there 5 times, now. It is just off the Toll Road and 4 minutes away from the South Shore Station. Our room was super clean, safe, quiet and... More

The pool is nice and warm which was nice, it's a little out dated. The room was big though and for a night stAys it was fine. It was easy to get too as we'll. I was a little unsure due to the recent reviews but I used my own judgement

I spent 4 hour here, just to sleep before a long drive. The room had a Jacuzzi, which was out of order. They didn't charge me for the Jacuzzi, nor did I ask for it. But to have non-working things like this in the room, is unprofessional. Clean, but in need of remodeling and updating. It's not expensive, but it's... More

I have stayed at this property in the past when it was under different names. I wanted to stay here again due to its proximity to Chicago and its very large truck-parking lot. I had a travel coupon for the place, but they were running a special that was better than the coupon and my total bill came to $55.... More

I'm currently visiting relatives in Hammond and Calumet City for Thanksgiving and needed a safe, clean, and comfortable room for me and my rat terrier without breaking the bank. I originally booked a room at the Motel 6 (formally Super 8) in Lansing that I booked for an average $45 per night, but the place was a horrific dump. My... More

We stopped here unplanned and did not check Tripadvisor first. We were tired and desperate, and the hotel looked okay from the road. Even the front desk area looked okay. But then we went to the elevator and then to the second floor. Reeking of cigarette smoke, dirty carpet, words scrawled on doors, dirty disoriented man walking down the hall.... More

We happened into this hotel due to weather on the way to Chicago. Arrived with no reservations and took what we could get in the room. It is an older hotel, and it is in need of updating and 'sprucing' up. It was reasonably priced for what you get, but I wouldn't call it a value. Given a choice I... More
