“Great price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Our stay was only for one night as a stopover en route to Minnesota. The location was convenient, area appeared to be safe, and plenty of shops/plazas/restaurants in the area to choose from less than 5mins away. The price point was great for the quality and service we received, in addition a decent breakfast included with our stay. Scrambled eggs, sausage and plenty of choices to choose from. We would stay here again.

I stayed here for three nights on a family trip to the Chicago area. The hotel's exclusive business seems to be value-concious families and others on personal trips, focusing primarily on visiting downtown Chicago. From everything I could gather about the property, it was a Hampton Inn that didn't want to (or didn't see the value in) renovate to keep up with the chain standards and went independent. Service was decent and the hot breakfast (assorted mini muffins, breads, gritty powdered eggs, yogurt, a hot side, and waffles) was a nice perk, though lacking compared to other chains in this price range. Very quiet, but a half-hour drive on 88 into the city.

Rooms don't seem to have been renovated since the late 90s. Original tube TVs, worn comforters, and dated furniture. Everything was clean and relatively comfortable, but definitely not new - then again, for the price and target market, I didn't expect new.

If I were making the trip again, I have to say that I would think hard about spending extra to stay in the city proper to save the hassle of going in and out. That said, if you're on a tight budget, it's not a bad place.

The only negative's that I would say about this hotel are that hours before arriving I called to request a mini fridge for our 4 day stay and was told that there are no fridge's at the hotel(I found out the next day that there are, and was given one). And also to request an allergy free room. Upon arrival, our room had feather pillows on the bed, and I had an allergy attack upon entering the room. These were replaced within 10 minutes, but did not take away from them having been on the bed. I was told that there was no notation for allergy free or a fridge.
Another complaint was not to the fault of the hotel, but the second morning the ceiling in the bathroom was leaking through the light. I was told that the room above me had a "problem" in the bathroom. I was afraid to ask what it was!
Due to the timing of our visit (for leisure), there was also a hockey tournament nearby, and Lollapolooza. There was NO WHERE near enough seating for breakfast for the amount of guests.
As other guests have stated, there are not enough outlets in the room. And none that are accessible to the bed! There was one on the desk lamp, and it did not have electricity to it to charge a phone. It was frustrating to try to use 2 outlets in the bathroom for any charging that needed done.
One of my biggest concerns when booking this hotel, was how to travel into the city. The nearest CTA train station was a 10-15 min drive, and then a 25 min ride into the city from there, not bad at all.

It was a pleasant surprise that we got a hot breakfast; Staffs are very friendly and the hotel provides free internet WIFI and free parking as well.

Further more, they have a computer and a printer available at Lobby in case if anyone would want to print. It was a great stay for our family.

Stayed here for visiting Chicago. It is 30 minutes driving to Chicago downtown, but much cheaper than downtown hotels. Friendly front desk stuff, clean room, hot/cold breakfast. Good value for visiting Chicago if you are on a tough budget.

We found a special deal on this hotel through expedia so we were happy with the $$. Wish it had a pool for future visits but we wouldn't have had time to swim this visit anyway so we stayed here. We were very happy with our room. We noticed the lumpy comforters also, but not a problem since we don't sleep on top of the comforter. We enjoyed the breakfast, especially using the waffle iron. The staff was very nice. A young gal on morning desk duty offered me stamps for free from her purse, too sweet. We did not encounter the smell of cigarette smoke anywhere in the hotel during our stay, which is great because I can't stand it! The area was nice but beware of toll Highways.

Very nice, well kept-up hotel. We got a deal there by booking through easytobook.com, which was advertised on the Trip Advisor site. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate - not just continental, but eggs, waffles, biscuits and gravy, too. Only odd thing - the comforters were "lumpy" - the quilting inside of them had separated into clumps so the beds were "hilly".
