Inn Keeper David is very friendly and helpful. Due to the bars on Sheffield closing very late be prepared for some noise at night when staying in the front rooms - nothing that should stop one from staying here but if it's a peaceful quiet stay you want be aware this is a city neighborhood, not out in the suburbs....

Four of us traveled to Chicago for three nights to watch a couple of baseball games. We stayed at the Old Chicago Inn about four blocks from Wrigley Field. It's a converted old brownstone on Sheffield Ave. Virginia, the innkeeper, was great. When we checked in she gave us a map and told us about the area and recommended a... More

Location is fantastic, great for sightseeing and shopping. transport on doorstep. Staff were so helpful and nice. Didn't have breakfast as very expensive but loads of nice cafés close by. Room was small for 4 people despite having bigger than average beds!! But we didn't mind this as we didn't spend time in the room.

I would recommend the Old Chicago inn for anyone looking to stay in the lakeview/wrigleyville section of Chicago, if you're looking for something different from a generic/luxury hotel. The location is excellent if you want to be near Wrigley, and also convenient to get downtown or to logan square. Vibe is old chicago, David the inn keeper was friendly.The wifi... More

If you are young, strong, fit and are interested in just a bed and a cup of coffee in the morning, this is perfect for you. If you are an old sedentary lady like me, not so much. This place is clean, nicely furnished, has guest passes for the gym and parking stickers for the neighborhood. It is good value... More

We had a wonderful stay at Old Chicago Inn this weekend. The room was comfortable, clean, secure. We had a room with a private bath, which was small but suited us just fine. David was wonderful, helpful, and knowledgeable. The price was right on point, and surprisingly affordable for a Cubs home game weekend! When we go back to Chicago... More

We stayed in room 2A on a recent visit to Chicago, 2 adults, 1 baby and a dog. OCI is in a great neighborhood with tons of things in walking distance, including the train. Daily parking was free, which was great but be prepared to drive around for a while trying to find a spot and then walk at least... More

We enjoyed the hospitality of the innkeeper, the walkability of the neighborhood, and the easy and free parking. Our room was large and clean. We live in an old home, so we loved the historic features. We had a private bath. We would stay again. It was nice to be away from the busy downtown area.

David is a very knowledgeable and friendly innkeeper. Having never been to Chicago, he helped us with various directions to get around the city, as well as activity suggestions. The location is in a nice area that is also close to various public transit options. The entire building is very beautiful, lots of woodwork. The morning breakfast was held in... More
