I've stayed at the Allerton on 3 occassons, twice on business on once while on vacation. It's an experience you need to take with an open mind. The visitor's area is clean, safe, affordable, and in a wonderful location. Other parts of the facility help the less fortunate. Don't leave valuables in your room, and don't get too upset if you need to buy your own toilet paper, or a light bulb. The TV was old, the gas stove didn't work, and yes, they turn the heat and hot water off at night, and back on around 5:00 in the morning. I've stayed for as long as a month at a time, and quickly became part of the eclectic group. This place serves a purpose. Be nice to the staff, especially the very large guard at the door.
