“Can't beat the price for location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed here for 2 evenings. We wanted a hotel/motel that was on the loop and had free parking. The cost was very reasonable and we were about 6 blocks from the loop....just a short walk. The Chicago Double Decker picked up across the street at the McDonalds. Larry at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. We got there at 11 am, and they let us go to our room then since it was already cleaned. We had a micro and fridge, room was very clean, and comfortable, did not hear any outside noise. We made reservations directly with them, so we had free breakfast across the street everyday. Between the savings on the parking and the breakfasts, it was a steal. Neighborhood felt safe. Remember this is not a fancy hotel, just a place to sleep and very reasonably!

The room was very clean, had fridge & microwave. We were surprised at how quiet it was. Jamie at the desk was very helpful in helping us get to Lincoln Park Zoo via the bus. Liked the hot chocolate/coffee machine in the office. The price was very good & the location was excellent. Liked the fact that it's just 2 floors & only 50 rooms. We didn't have a car but nice feature to have free parking. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our way home to Minnesota from Cleveland. First impression of the room was a caged window overlooking an alley filled with graffiti. As it turned out, everything was just fine, we enjoyed our stay. If you're going to Navy Pier, there's a free shuttle to and from, just a couple blocks away. There's a great big McDonalds right across the street which came in handy. The price of the room could be a tad lower, but with free parking, which can run to $40 a night in some places, I guess it's worth it.

Room Tip: Keep it a little quieter by taking a back room overlooking the alley. Very busy streets all around.

Hello.
Thank you for staying with us.
Those security bars on the windows will be coming down soon since we are in a very upscale portion of Chicago and we have the most wonderful guests in the world here such as yourself.
We'll see you soon.

What I can say is, it is very cheap place for this location. You can get to anywhere by walking or just paid little bit for taxi.
I saw somebody's review said the room has no fridge but my room had it. So, I can tell it depends on the room. The room was much quieter than I thought. The bed was too soft and I hurt my back. The room was "ok" clean, not awesomely clean but it was better than I thought. It was cold inside of the room but you can just call the office and they will change the temperature. The people in the office were nice except one lady. She was just rude. I hope you won't meet her when you check in.
One more thing, don't use vending machine. It was so expensive and the place the bottle come out was so dirty. I had to wash bottle after I bought it.
ここはロケーションからしたらすごく安いです。シカゴの色々な所に徒歩またはタクシーで簡単に行けます。
誰かレビューで冷蔵庫が無いと書いてありましたが、私の部屋にはあったので部屋によって備品があるのと無いのとがありそうです。部屋は位置的な事もあるだろうけど、思ったより静かでビックリでした。ベッドは柔らかすぎて腰痛めました。部屋はまあまあ綺麗。さすがに他のホテル並みの掃除は期待できないけど、思ったよりは綺麗でした。オフィスの人達は基本良い人達です。ただ、一人だけ態度の悪い女の人がいたので、皆さんがチェックインする時とか、その人に当たらない事を願います。
あとは、自販機があるんですが、値段も高いし、ボトルが出て来る所がメチャクチャ汚かったので、自販機の使用はオススメしません。

The location is Great and the people at the desk were wonderful!!!
Keep in mind this is a motel and not a big and fancy hotel chain. Stayed here as other 'Company Approved' hotels were sold out, this fell into my per-diem amount and other hotels for this particular week were $400+ a night.
Bonus for me, they have smoking rooms where many other properties do not.
The room was clean, bathroom VERY clean. I was in the A building, furthest from traffic and had no complaints about noise as other reviews mention.
It's a little dated, had the microwave on the desk which made it a little tight to work at (on a business trip).

All in all, If you're seeking a budget property in a great location, convenient to the downtown attractions, restaurants, convenient stores etc, it works well!!!

The front desk staff was great.

But the location can't be beat, and the price was "cheap" for Chicago standards. Al's Beef is right around the corner, as well as many other excellent restaurants (and a McDonalds that looks like it's straight out of Back to the Future). The wifi was terrible, and the breakfast was at the hotel across the street. The smoking rooms have not been renovated, and the non-smoking rooms were a little more current.

Room Tip: Get the non-smoking rooms and book direct.

I visit Chicago every year, and stayed at Ohio House for the second straight year.

3 days of my 5-day itinerary, I took public transportation. Rest of the days, I drove a rental motorcycle. So the motel is convenience for me in terms of downtown location and accessible parking.

The facility is a little bit worn but enough for me. Friendly front desk, careful cleaner staffs...
I probably choose Ohio House for next year Chicago visit.

Room Tip: North side rooms face backyard of restaurants. Sometimes strangers pass and make noise.
