It is, I believe, some 50+ years old with little changed -- the motel itself reminds me of many others of its era that still line Milwaukee Ave. near O'Hare, but cleaner. What you get at the Ohio House (Ohio and La Salle) is a great location with parking outside your door which, by itself, would otherwise go for at least $30/day. . . frankly, if you are there as a tourist most locations are an easy walk (the longest hike might be to Navy Pier which is interesting in itself -- kids love the Ferris Wheel and Spook House) and everyone will enjoy the one hour Chicago River Architectural Tour which starts near the Pier is a great way to appreciate how the city grew and developed from the days of a trading post called Ft. Huron. Rates depend on # of beds and if you are there during the week or for the weekend. Heat and A.C. are controlled from the front desk and should be checked each day or you may be reset to 72 F. come morning. Good WiFi included along with HBO and the usual cable channels (pretty good sound insulation between rooms). The TV screens aren't large, but is that what brought you? Suggest tourists walk West to the "Brown Line" (the closer "Red Line" is a subway), sit in the front car and get a fantastic lesson on why Chicagoans call the Loop the Loop. Also, the small Diner behind the Office could be Sienfeld's: comfortable booths, bottomless coffee, breakfast specials, friendly staff and the local paper -- all for less than Mac's (but only cash is accepted).
