Inn at Lincoln Park
Ranked #147 of 192 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed July 24, 2008

I went to Chicago on an extended weekend and stayed at the Inn. I loved it! The lobby has such a warm feel to it and it's walking distance to several shops, restaurants, the El, ect. The room size was extremely accomodating with two beds, and sepeate area for the desk and clothes, and a bathroom with a full size tub and decorated in a way that reminded me of the 20's-30's. It felt more like an apt than a hotel room. The staff were amazing and helped me with soooo much while in the city. They had parking available at a cheaper rate than paying for a garage which is extremely convenient in Chicago. We'll be back there again...and soon!

Came here for a Cubs weekend w/ the guys. A bit frightened from past reviews, but I think when it comes down to it, there are good rooms and bad rooms in this place.

Our three rooms were all good ones.

No, you are not at the Grand Hyatt nor Four Seasons...but you're not paying those premiums, either.

In simplest terms: you want to be in a great location, inexpensively, and not going to be in your hotel much, this is a great option (and its not a 'CSI Crime Scene', nor other horror stories that are being painted, although I'll admit some of the inconveniences--like lack of water pressure--did occur). If you want luxury, head down to the Magnificent Mile

This place was great! It was charming and spotlessly clean and the women at the front desk were awesome, going out of their way to give us directions and recommendations of sights to see. If you like the sterility of a chain hotel, this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy the charm of an old building, check it out.

We were in Room 112, which had two small bathrooms and two double beds. TV worked fine and had cable. The bathrooms are tiny and the shower was tricky, alternating from very hot to very cold. But it was worth it to be in the heart of Lincoln Park. Easy walk to Wrigley Field. The continental breakfast was excellent with cereal, yogurt, bagels, donuts, juice and coffee. Plus there were carnations on the table, which was a nice touch.

We'd definitely stay there again.

So we stayed 2 nights with this hotel-- we got greeted with the front desk informing us that we were going to be required to switch rooms on our second day cause they overbooked or something. The room was to a 1920's style, with a bathroom the size of a closet (couldn't even open the door because it ran into the toilet). The shower only sprayed out a few drops of water and fluctated between going hot and cold. The second night we had to switch to a double bed (which was hard as a rock) room that was the size of a closet-- it had NO air conditioning and had to argue with the staff up front to get a fan to put in the window so we didn't sufficate. Our bathroom window didn't even have a screen in it, so the option of opening that for air was out of the question. The second bathroom was better but only got about 2 drops of water out of that shower.

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website or the lobby when you walk in-- the lobby is fully remodeled and gorgeous but wait until you get back to the room section

Basically, bad service, crappy rooms, and WAY OVERPRICED! There is a nice Day's Inn only 1/2 block away-- go there instead-- you will enjoy your stay much better!

What annoys me most about this hotel is that when you walk into reception - you have no idea how bad the actual bedrooms are going to be! Damp, mouldy walls, the most stained mattress you've ever seen and electrical sockets that simply didn't look safe. And then there was the toilet.... flushing was like a russian roulette game that we didn't always win...
To top it all - it wasn't even that cheap! DO NOT BOTHER!

The main problem was that the rooms are dirty and the staff aren't very helpful. We switched rooms upon check-in since the room we originally got was extremely small and run down. The next room was much larger but not exactly clean and comfortable. We encountered a cockroach in the bathroom and bugs in the tub.

Beware of the complimentary cookies in the looby. There were about 100 fruit flies enjoying them.

The weekend we were there, staff needed to let us into the rooms. We never did get a good explanation as to why we were not given keys.

The air conditioner (window unit) did not work properly nor did the TV.

At $159/night we expected much better. If there were any rooms available in another hotel close by we would have checked out within the hour, but we couldn't find anything.

I'd stay away.

My husband & I stayed 2 nights in July 2007. We had a very nice room, the size was plenty for 2 people. The bathroom was spacious also. Everything was clean. It has an older atmospheric look, but well kept. The continential breakfast was very nice. Location is excellent with plenty of restaurants, shopping and things to do. We would definately go back again.
