Great value neighbourhood hotel. Location was good right on the corner was the bus a seven minute walk was the train and a beautiful walk at that.

AC in room very weak Was ok for the overnight no frills stay which is what I was looking for. Location ok for quick in and out of the city. Lot of traffic issues roads closed blocked not their fault. Using energy-efficient lighting in rooms. Good for them. But made the room seem very dark and dim and dingy.

Convenient to my brothers house, several families stayed here for a family reunion. Great idea, we could walk to his house, the Edge Fest, and back. Clean and safe, comfortable if dated, sure it could use some warmth at reception but hey, it delivers what's promised. A great value.

Very dated, but well kept property. Kind is quaint including old fashion neon sign. Room is very basic, but clean. Staff friendly and helpful. TV channels poor and internet somewhat slow. 2 bus lines within 1 block radius. Good place to stay on a budget.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Free coffee and muffins. The room was clean. Bus stop right outside the parking lot. They offer free parking, which is a great plus if you are traveling by car. Some good restaurants in the area

We were looking for a budget hotel not too far from downtown. We were mostly traveling and came back just to sleep. Its a 20-25 minute drive from downtown and located close to a metro line (although we didn't use the train). The room was basic - two beds, bathroom and a TV. No microwave / fridge / coffee maker....

Great motel on the North side of Chicago, very close to the red line metro. Room was clean and everything worked well, plus staff at the front was very courteous. Asian guy, Zone, at the front desk also let us have a second parking spot for our trailer which was extremely helpful for visiting the city.

The title says the essentials. Our friends from Chicago recommended the Heart O'hare as a centrally located, cheap place to stay while visiting. It was $240 for two nights with a 20-25 minute uber to downtown Chicago, or back to the train station. Clean overall, our room was touched up by housekeeping- however our door was left wide-open after being... More

Place is an Awesome value for Chicago. Chicago is really expensive and if your looking for a nice soft clean bed, small but crisp TV, and clean bathroom then this is the place to be! Pro's LOCATION = Far north side of Chicago about 15-20 min to downtown Via Lake Shore Drive. Safe area off a busy street, but noise... More

The motel is very clean and well maintained. Don't judge it by its outward experience. Most importantly, the front end gentleman - Javed - is very good to work with. We had some challenges with a booking and he worked it out to my satisfaction. I'd definitely recommend checking out this place as it is pretty affordable as well.
