I really wanted to hate this place on the first night of a one-week-long business trip, and imagined myself writing a real scather of a one-star review later, but by the week's end I started to not mind it so much.
The exterior is a hulking, bunker-like structure, and is a bit intimidating. It's set a ways back from Milwaukee Avenue and there's some kind of long blat of construction going on in front of it. Nothing in the hotel is new. The carpets are all pretty ratty. Door knobs are loose. The elevator was broken. Everything feels worn.
However, the room was clean, the heat/AC unit was newer and worked great, the hot water was hot and the bed was reasonably comfy. I slept well. Since I was gone from 8am to 8-10pm most days, it served its purpose quite well. The hotel wi-fi was slow but free, and adequate for checking email.
I didn't try the continental breakfast, or even look at it, so I can't say if it was any good or not.
Only interacted with the staff twice -- once at check-in, and once during check-out. Both processes were quick. The woman at check-in was haggard, quiet and grumpy, but having had a long day as well, I sort of understood, so I guess that was okay.
I did not see a single insect, so that was cool.
Finally, the place was super cheap through Yahoo Travel so that was a big plus.
