This was our second stay at Magnolia Studios and surely won't be our last. We are a Chicago couple with 4 kids who live on a budget that doesn't include allowances for many out of town getaways. Therefore, we try to take "staycations" a few times a year. Staying at expensive (and overpriced) downtown hotels or cookie-cutter suburban chain hotels... More

This is my third time staying at Magnolia Studios, and as always, it has been exceptional. Great, safe location on the North Side of Chicago. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if this place is available, highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights in late July. The studio itself was clean, well appointed, and comfortable for two. The room was complete with a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, oven, hot top, coffee/tea/water), a small table, a reading chair & ottoman, a desk w/ complementary laptop (did not use), a small flatscreen/dvd combo and queen size bed. The bathroom had... More

I came to Chicago with a girlfriend to attend her daughter's commencement and to do a little sightseeing. We stayed 3 nights at Magnolia Studios and couldn't be happier with our choice. We arrived early the first day and needed a place to change clothes to attend commencement. Our room was being cleaned so Kate took us upstairs in her... More

I feel like I made a major find in locating Magnolia Studios. It is located near Lake Michigan in a quiet residential neighborhood with restaurants and shopping nearby. The beach was a 10-15 minute walk. We wanted to keep our nightly bill within reason, near the city, and that is comfortable. The usual fare of 1.5-2 star hotel chains came... More

We stayed here while in town for a Cubs game. The neighborhood is quiet, with good proximity to the Red line train station as well as local eateries. The studio was clean, well decorated, and made smart use of the space. Highly recommend if heading to Chicago, we will definitely be returning. The available on-site parking was a plus.

I was visiting the city with my parents and I had booked this place for a couple of days. The apartment was real cozy and made to look really beautiful. It had all the amenities and stocked with necessary supplies. The owner was really responsive through mail and very friendly. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend anyone visiting... More

This was very convenient for us in visiting a friend living in Chicago. Good transportation available, shopping, restaurants and convenient to mass transportation. Wrigley Field 12 minutes away by "L". 25 minutes to O'Hare buy taxi. Reasonable, converted carriage house.

After years of visiting our son in Chicago we have finally found the perfect stay in his neighborhood. Magnolia Studios was charming, spotless, very well-equipped, and so very convenient. Our hostess Kate couldn't have been more accommodating. We loved this stay! And a parking garage in Chicago was a special treat. We will always look here first for any future... More

This is our third visit to Magnolia Studios and we have now stayed in all the available accommodation. This time we stayed in Room 2 in the Coach house. It, and Room 1, has been upgraded since our last visit. It was a joy to come into our room, which looked so good and beautifully furnished. Kate has an eye... More
