The Lobby looked great, the halls and carpeting where filthy. Thought at one time I'd see a silhouette of a body outlined on the hall floor. Got to my room to find 2 chairs piled in a corner with the arms busted off, a desk with no drawers. Had no water preasure in bathroom, no refridge,no microwave. Mattress must have... More

Edward, the night concierge at the front desk, is a wonderful gentleman & very helpful right when you walk in to a wonderful stay. I have been to many hotels with my Family & Econo Lodge is my top favorites with great rates :) The new renovations make it feel nice & cozy like home, & it is very clean.... More

Let me start by saying I booked this room last minute. I picked this location because it is close to Horseshoe Casino and the casino does not have a hotel. Check in was great and had no problem with my reservation through a third party site (priceline). I had a non smoking king size room which was clean and your... More

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
