My parents stayed here almost every time they came to visit me in Chicago. I've stayed here a few times too, mostly when I was in the process of moving. It's actually a really fantastic place to stay on the North Side - most of the hotels are downtown, so if you are visiting family in Lincoln Park or anywhere in the north neighborhoods, it's nice to be a bit closer. And it's in a great location with tons of restaurants and shopping, easy lake access, and busses/trains to downtown.

I've never found it to be noisy despite its proximity to a very busy intersection. And I'm very sensitive to noise!

The rooms are small, but they fit the bill. Last time, my parents and I were both upgraded for no reason to a "business room" which is the size of a normal hotel room (as opposed to the small standard rooms) and came with a few perks like a little bag of Chicago mix popcorn! Bathrooms always tend to be small, no matter the room.

Free wi-fi that works pretty well, not super fast. Free breakfast in the morning that I think is mostly just continental (no hot bar) but you can make waffles and oatmeal and things like that. Valet parking, you pay a flat fee for unlimited in and out for the day. Pricey, but very convenient and really necessary in this neighborhood.

The front desk staff are SO nice. They are always happy and friendly, eager to help, and just incredibly pleasant. They remember my parents after so many stays and treat them so kindly. Also, I left something of great sentimental value there recently and they mailed it back to me in Michigan (they charge for it, just charged the card we used for the room, but still).

I'd recommend this hotel to anybody who just wants a place to stay that's less expensive than the downtown options but still safe and convenient. It's no frills, but it'll meet all your needs!

I had a meeting north of downtown the next morning, and didn't want to have to get up at the crack of dawn to fight my way into Chicago.

I had a 4th floor room with a double bed. Fortunately, I was the only one staying in the room because it was cozy. Good for one person, but if two people were staying in the room someone might have to step into the hall to change clothes.

Women might want to take note that on these smaller rooms the counter space in the bathroom is non-existent. One small little glass shelf above the sink.

Overall the hotel was very clean and well kept. My room was also very clean and neat. The bed was comfortable, but the walls are paper thin. That would explain why they have a set of ear plugs in the toiletries they supply.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel North of the downtown area, this is it.

Dear Pete P.,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Days Inn Chicago. We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments. The rooms with one double bed are our smallest and most economical room type, but we do offer many other larger room types including standard rooms with two double beds, a queen, or a king, as well as Business Class rooms which are even larger and include additional amenities like a microwave, mini-fridge, and complimentary daily snack pack. We are glad to hear that you found our Lincoln Park/Lakeview hotel to be clean and well kept. We hope that, should your travels bring you back to Chicago, you'll keep the Days Inn Chicago in mind.
