“Good hotel for a great Price”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

This hotel was not at all what I expected. It is within walking distance to the lake and the magnificent mile. After reading some of the awful reviews I was not going to book this hotel but the price fit our budget. The rooms are small but who really spends all there time in the hotel room when there is so much to do in Chicago. The money we saved on the room went a long way at the many eateries and shops in the area. So if you want to save a bit of money and need a place to sleep, then this is the place for you.

Stayed her for three nights. Great location for the price. Can walk or take L very easily. Bellman went out of his way to help us with our luggage and get our cab. It's an older hotel and nothing really fancy, but it was clean and we didn't hear anything and slept great. Front desk was attentive and would stay here again.

My title really states it all, but I can't emphasize enough how rude the front desk was. For that reason alone, I will never stay here again.

Stayed here for a 2 nights. This was not a very pleasant hotel to stay at. Got a room with a double bed that was very dirty at the end of the hall by the fire exit. Elevators had a bad smell and were very slow, and one of them always seemed to be out of service. I also found the staff to be rude and inattentive.


In my opinion, the only thing it has going for it is the location. I would not stay here again, and would not recommend it.

Stayed here with may aunt when we went to visit my brother in Cincinnati (cheaper to fly to Chicago and bus down to Cincy...go fig) in Sept of '10. Anyway we were visiting Chicago and picked this place for it's location to things and price. We got a good deal on a three night stay and I think I know why. This is an older building which seems to not have been updated for quite a while. The front desk was helpful in terms of addressing our concerns. Our first room was basic however it wreaked of cigarette smoke. Though the rooms are non-smoking it seems all the years of smoking are now embedded in the walls, ceiling, and carpet. We asked for another room which they did find for us. We got a slightly larger room with a kitchenette. The bathroom was nice and large since we got a handicap accessible room (this was good for my aunt). Though basic it was a nice step up from the first room.

The room contained 2 full sized beds which were OK, nothing special about them. Though the room was large it was facing the street so it was noisy at night till about 1am or so. after that it was OK. The AC was old and noisy so it did help drown out some of the noise but of you don't want any noise this may not be the place for you. I wold say around a 2 star hotel and that incudes the location as a plus. It is situated between the happenings of Magnificent Mile and the large number of museums towards the southern end of town. There is also a Red Line stop a couple of blocks away for getting around.

There are other hotels in the area which may be nicer and perhaps only slightly more so do our homework and compare for your intended travel dates and you could be in for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Get room away from street.
