“Alright for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

I reserved with a coupon, which they didn't use when I checked in, which was disappointing. The room itself was fine, although my shower drain was broken, as well as the shower feature itself and there was dust caking the heating unit (very bad considering my allergies). The microwave was dirty and there was soap provided but no shampoo. I didn't much appreciate the young kids running up and down the hall and slamming doors at 1 AM, but that's not really the hotel's fault.

The staff was very friendly, and the bed was comfortable enough (enough blankets and pillows, and clean). There were plenty of towels as well. Would've been much more pleased with my stay had I gotten the price that I was promised with the coupon when I reserved.

I have stayed at this hotel in the past but since I was last there it has been refurbished. I always find the staff to be friendly and courteous. I am normally at a trade show and it is nice to go back to another hotel away from the crowd. The rooms are clean and there is a kitchen facility which one can use if you choose. They have ordered taxis for me and no problems with any stay there.
Thank you Extended Hotel Chicago

Room Tip: Inormally pick a non smoking room

The room was clean and comfortable. The location was convenient, located right off the highway and walking distance to a variety of stores and restaurants. The clerk, Vicki I believe, was friendly and informative. I didn't utilize the kitchen facilities but they seemed clean and in order.

One issue: This hotel suffers from a growing problem across the country which I refer to as "flourescent white syndrome". This is the result of uninformed hotel managers stocking their rooms with the "pure white" compact flourescent lights. You must understand that these rooms are designed to be lit by "warm white" light, the colors, accents, and atmosphere, as designed by corporate, only functions with the correct color temperature. Using the pure white lights creates a hostile, industrial atmosphere where grime and imperfections become much more obvious. Don't get me wrong, I am all for efficiency, but for the love of god purchase the "warm white" variety of compact flourescent. They cost exactly the same and simulate the warm, friendly, comfortable glow of traditional incandescent.

The bed was neither clean, nor comfortable. The bedding is cheap. The carpet needs to be at least steam cleaned. No shampoo or conditioner. Free breakfast only served cereal bars. The drain of tub not working well. Even the price is cheap, it is not worth the money.

I was on vacation to Chicago and found this hotel deal through Priceline very cheap. I got it for less than $40 per day. The lobby was very neat and they offered complementary breakfast. We were a group of 11 people on the trip and we enjoyed our stay there. The staff were friendly and courteous.

Walked in the lobby from the mostly empty parking lot and immediately it just smelled like pet store. Vicki at front desk was very nice. Get up to room, there was FECES in my toilet, PUBIC hairs in my bathtub and hair stuck to the bath towel. As I had passed a housekeeping lady on my way to room, I went and asked her if she could please sanitize my toilet. She told me NO and to call the front desk, because she wasn't doing it. Vicki came up and cleaned my bathroom. I was just getting settled in, pulled my sheets back and there were tiny SPIDERS in the bed!!!! Needless to say I packed up and left. Walls were paper thin, I could hear someones phone ringing and then their conversation. Refrigerator was all dented up, window sill was full of grubby handprints. Awful, awful place. If you are desperate for a cheap hotel, this might suit you, but I'd rather sleep in my car then here.

Room Tip: My tip is to find a room somewhere else!

Most of the staff are pleasant and hard working. Maria on days and Jason on nights stand out as reliable and very attentive, pleasant and professional. I've been here a long time.
Mary who works the overnight shift through morning needs counseling on attitude (loud and rude and dose not follow what she says are the rules).
Thank You for the opportunity to express my opinions.
