Staff was actually nice. Location is great. But it really does end there, sadly. Roaches and Bedbugs are both present, luckily I was not bitten but I saw them. Bed was clean when I got there minus some stains on the sheets. I don't want to know what they were. But housekeeping did not come once after that for a... More

I stayed at the Abbott years ago with friends. We needed a quick place and found it while driving by. Instincts (and common sense) told me not to stay there, but my friends would not listen. Everything else you read here is true. I also saw gay porn in the lobby, brown water coming from the sink, mirrors on the... More

If you are traveling the Lost Highway, I recommend a stay at this hotel. A welcoming 'Lobby Closed' sign greats you as you enter the lobby. Take a moment to appreciate the pair of doves pecking at each other in their small cage. The desk clerks will great any politeness with looks of pity and distrust, constant eye contact is... More

Not only are the rooms jacked up but the Manager of the Building is total lacking customer service skills and has no respect for heterosexual people obviously. I had never met this guy before and told him about my shower not working in my room in which I paid for a private room with shower and he acted like a... More

If you want to stay in a bizarre and skanky venue, the Abott's for you. Look for Hanging mannequin heads and a pair of doves that laugh hysterically in the lobby, staffed by an assortment of quirky characters. I've been there, perhaps four times because I love the Belmont and Halstead location, but the appeal has worn thin. My last... More

I have stayed in a decent amount of cheap hotels in my lifetime so I can say that I have grown used to the lack of commodities and luxuries that come with more expensive finds. However, for being the most expensive cheap hotel I have ever stayed in, it was by far the least admirable. There were hairs in the... More

I travel the nation almost every weekend of the school year representing my school's track and field team. Never in any of my endeavors have I encountered such a despicable place of business.

I just called a few minutes ago to find out the price because I need to make a reservation, and not being from Chicago, clearly the most logical thing to do is call.

Having been to well over 120 countries and very well traveled, It is not the Ritz and does not claim to be, It is very well located among various places to eat, the new grill on the conner being my first choice, It is a place that is whatever you make it, they could do better on leaving more towels...
