“Cheap, nice manager, but not much else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

Stayed here for two nights while taking the marine biology club to the Shedd Aquarium. Arrived in a maxi-van; parking very difficult. Got three rooms. All were about what one would expect at a budget hotel. Surrounding area was mostly commercial; not a nice place to walk (but not necessarily dangerous). Breakfast at hotel was the usual continental fare with the added attraction of a cook to order waffle iron. Fresh fruit was available. One room had a problem with "bugs"; the management gave us that room for free. Overall we got about what we paid for. Would not go back.

Room Tip: Check your bed!

Well, as the title suggests, my wife and I did not get a good-night's sleep at this Super 8. We checked it late in the night, got to our room, pulled back the covers and...found blood-stained sheets. Disgusting. So I got a new set of sheets from the front office, but when we unfolded them in the room we discovered that this set also had its share of blood stains. So I had to go back another time to finally get a clean pair.

Also, it takes about half an hour to get to Chicago from here. I would not stay here again.

We were looking for a low price motel within driving distance to the Chicago attractions. We found this motel to be quite acceptable. The room was large, with some of the furniture showing a little age. It included a refrigerator, coffee pot, hair dryer, ironing board, etc. The king-sized bed was firm (the way we like it). We were glad the
AC worked well, because the temp was in the 90s. The rooms came with free, wireless Internet. The TV was an older style 30 in, and included a somewhat limited cable selection that included HBO, Cinemax, and I think Showtime. We could hear some planes (O'hare airport a few miles away) and trains, but this did not disturb our sleep.

The motel was a little less than a half hour drive from the Field Museum,
Shedd Aquarium, Skydeck, etc. during non-rush hour times.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

We took advantage of the free breakfast, which included fresh Columbian coffee, make your own waffles, toast, English muffins, cereal, oranges and apples, juice, pastries, etc.

Bottom line is we would stay here again.

This is a tough review to write. Is it a good place to crash for a night? Yeah, but I wouldn't stay here more then 2 days or so. The parking is really crappy and is off two busy streets. I almost got rear ended trying to get into the parking lot. It's value is ok, but the fact that they had refillable shampoo and shower gel dispensers in the shower was a bit of a turn off. It's about 8 minutes from the Cumberland train station which is a 45 minute train ride to Union Station and has a park and ride. As I said, it's a good place to crash of you are low on cash, but that's about it. Service and staff were very and friendly and helpful too which gave it 3 stars.

Parking is terrible(saw someone back into another car because there wasn't enough room to park), carpet in room had holes in it, looked like someone put there fist throught the bathroom door. Ordered online for the room and didn't get what we wanted but the hotel was full so we took what we got. Planned on staying again over the 4th July weekend but canceled.

Room Tip: Don't go there

the hotel is quite far from O'Hare - you really need a car to get there

As you drive to the hotel, you'll see the environment degradation, from Hyatt, Hilton to Comfort Suite and so on until you hit some crappy hotels on that road (e.g. Relax Inn)
At least, this Super 8 is not bad, beside a gas station.

There a train track in the area but it was not too disturbing

the breakfast is standard Super 8 style (yogurt, waffle, cereals) and is good enough
