Extended Stay America - Chicago - Skokie
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Skokie
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I had the pleasure of staying at this property for 2 days. The hotel was newly renovated, clean, bed was comfortable and the staff took care of all your needs. The check in and out process was seamless.

I especially liked the coffee and breakfast to go in the lobby. That was really a nice touch and for coffee drinkers it was much appreciated.


I have stayed at other Extended stay properties and have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly, very helpful and want to ensure that your stay is satisfying.
Patrick and Barbara, you do a great job, Thanks

The hotel was just renovated and they did a wonderful job. It looks magnificent. Granite counter tops, new beds, new lcd tvs! The staff is also very colorful and friendly. They are always around to share a good laugh. I have stayed here for the past three months, and while at Extended Stay Skokie, I have had no complaints, and if I did, I know that the staff would be there to help. They are not just hotel staff, but they are friends,

Hotel is a short drive to Northwestern University, Downtown Evanston, Lake Michigan, & Downtown Chicago. The Old Orchard Shopping Center just across the expressway (94) has very good restaurants, shopping, & movie theaters. Just down the street is a Jewel Food Store if you want to cook your own meals in your room. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, the hotel is quiet, staff is friendly and helpful. Free WiFi is good too!

It was very kind of you to for take the time to publish such a positive review of your stay at the Extended Stay America Chicago - Skokie. It's always satisfying to read positive feedback from our valued guests, like you. Although some companies run extravagant advertising campaigns for their hotels, we believe that the best kind of marketing is the public praise we get from our millions of happy customers. That's why the biggest investment we make is in our customers. Our company motto is "Excellence Every Day, Every Way", and my promise to you is that we will continue to operate according to this practice; after all, that's how Extended Stay Hotels(sm) got to be the largest extended stay lodging brand in North America.

I'll begin with the good. The cooling/heating system is new and works well, although it is noisy even on low. We were on the 2nd floor and heard no noise from our neighbours. The bed wasn't the best but was OK and the sheets were clean. The shower was great! There is a kitchen with a full sized fridge and freezer.

Now the issues. This property is rated as a 2* on some sites, but in my mind it is a 1*. There is no free breakfast! They claim that the kitchen is fully equipped but there was no sponge or dishwasher liquid (no dishwasher either), no paper towels, less than 2 of some of the silverware, no containers to use for microwave meals that don't come in microwaveable containers. The free wireless was OK but slow. They give you the option of paying extra for faster service. The phone was not working for 2 of our 3 day stay. There is a "refresh service" which includes replacing soiled towels, emptying trash, replenishing soap and toilet paper if needed and making beds with existing linens. There is a $3 charge if arranged on a daily basis or $5 if occasional. If you're there 1-6 nights you can take advantage of the towel exchange at the front desk; 7+ nights and you get one "full service" provided every 7 days.

The hotel claims to be renovated. While some work has been done the room we had was clearly not fully renovated as the furniture was old and chipped, the bedding was not new and the carpet looked to be old. Although we did check for bed bugs (and found none) and clean sheets on arrival we did find this room usable and stayed the full 3 nights we'd booked.

Room Tip: We were in room 204
