“Hooker motel!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2004

Stayed here with a friend of mine in July 2004 because most of the regular motels and hotels are ridiculously expensive near downtown Chicago ($130/night for a Super 8 motel?!). I knew it would be an adventure, but I didn't expect the lighted and MIRRORED ceiling. In fact, mirrors covered nearly every wall of the room. Very disturbing. The cigarette burns and BLOOD STAINS on the sheets were a bit nauseating, and I wasn't really happy at being asked, "You done, you finished?" by the cleaning ladies when we left. Also, the maintenance guy would not stop staring at me (I'm a man) whenever I was outside my room.... leering at me like some chicken hawk. All in all, a repulsive experience, but certainly one to be remembered. If you're looking for cheap lodging IN Chicago, try the Diplomat on Lincoln. It's fairly scummy, but much less so than the Lincoln, The Stars, or any of the tragically run-down motels on that strip. Beautiful neon signs, but Lincoln Ave. is no longer a thoroughfare, and the expressways and freeways installed in the 60's ruined the area.
