Need extra "oomph" to get through your shopping? Old Chicago is the place to go. Convenient to MarketPlace Center Mall in Champaign, IL. They have 110 brews and lots of pasta and pizza. Sandwiches are served with sides. The fries are fresh and hot ; side salads are nice luncheon size. You can order both individual pizza or family size.... More

Went to Chicago to see baseball at Wrigley Field. We were just a few blocks away from Wrigley with a bunch of fabulous restaurants, bars & clubs inbetween. Cab ride in & cab ride out. No rental car required. Never got bored. Old Chicago Inn served excellent beverages in the bar downstairs. When we go back we will try to... More

We had a very nice stay. Could this hotel you some updates? Absolutely!! It was definitely a good value. We had a pleasant stay. David the innkeeper is very friendly and accommodating. Avoid the 3rd floor during the summer it is very hot. There is a sitting area and a mini fridge with microwave on the third floor. I am... More

Hard to give this place more than a 3. Yes, it's quaint. And yes it's clean, and David is sincere. But, I would avoid the third floor. The A/C is non-existent. We got a tiny room, with a comfortable queen bed that took up most of the room. The shower was average, the bathroom, very small, the stool in a... More

We stayed 2 nights at The Old Chicago Inn, while in Chicago for a Cubs game. The hotel is just one block from the Belmont El station, and about a 10 minute walk to Wrigley Field. We stayed in room 1C, which is on the first floor. We appreciated the 'uniqueness' of the hotel...antique furniture and decorations that alude to... More

Very quaint place, reminiscent of staying at your great-aunt's house. Old/antique furniture in every room. Speakeasy in basement was interesting to see. David was an excellent host; making sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in room 2A. King size bed was very comfortable. White robes in the room were a nice touch. We stayed on a Sunday night... More

We arrived on June 16 for three nights accomodations. We had booked rom 3A since it had a king size bed and private bath. We chose the location because we were attending a Chicago Cubs game & the Inns location to the L. We called as the door was locked @ 2:30. David met us and said we could check... More

While I was pleased with the area, proximity to public transit, comfort of the room (comfy bed with nice pillows and excellent water pressure with consistent hot water) and the courtesy of the staff, I was unhappy with what it cost (too high for what it provides), the cleanliness of my room (giant piles of dust beside and under the...

Daughter and I stayed 2 nights. Reminded us of many places we've stayed in Europe. Very welcoming lobby, and David greeted us warmly and got us settled in. The Old Chicago Inn was ideally located as others have said - right by the L which was perfect. Was also nice to just walk the 4 blocks to a Cubs game.... More

The lobby was nice and the location was absolutely perfect! The room was run down and needed work and the hall carpets were just as bad. However, for the price I would definitely stay there again because of the location! The roof top glass also needed some cleaning but the view was spectacular from the top!
