We stayed here for a concert we attended at North Central College over in Naperville because it was the best value. I must say, as we drove in from the north from I88, it didn't look too promising as the neighborhoods we drove through north of downtown didn't look too safe. However, when we got to the hotel, the area seemed to be a bit better. This hotel is in downtown Aurora and backs up to the Metra station.
The hotel itself is normal - nice lobby, etc. Rooms are good for the price point. Clean but a little bit dated. Nothing to worry about.
Right next door is a brewery so we were able to grab a drink and an after concert snack. They guy at the bar told us to just watch ourselves walking next door after midnight. It is a little bit dark and you never know who will be hanging around the Metra station.
Overall, we felt pretty safe. We'd stay here again.
