This Motel is in a nice neighborhood on the south side, not far off 90-94 in a mostly black neighborhood. The staff was very nice, and despite being in Chicago and being a minority there, we felt very safe and enjoyed our stay. :-) Our company had four rooms, and although they were clean, they were very 'rough' and needed...

Some sites say this is in the south loop. It is not. There were some 'exchanges' in the parking lot that appeared to be of a drug nature. The lot did have ample parking spaces on the good side. Check in kept getting bumped back and a few hours after the listed check in, I was able to do so.... More

As you can read from some of the reviews, this place is in a neighborhood undergoing revitalization. When we pulled into the courtyard to park, some of the rooms looked in very bad condition, almost scary. Dirty and torn curtains and windows, and beat up air conditioning units made us wary of even staying. Our room was on the third... More

We were in Chicago for five nights in the spring of 2015. We found the Amber Inn to be a wonderful place to stay. In terms of hospitality, I would give the hotel 6/5. All the staff were very friendly and went that extra mile in service. We were given a lovely, spacious room on the third floor which was... More

If you have to stay here then it's because it's all that fits in your budget or everything else is booked. We went through 3 different rooms before we found one acceptable and was woken up at 6 am by an industrial fan outside the room that would make the mirror on the wall shake. But I've seen worse. ..... More
