    Never again

    The 1st room they gave us was horrible!! The lights didn't work, wall paper was peeling off the wall, there was visible mold in the bathroom, art obviously missing from the walls, the lamp shade was busted and falling apart. When we told them the condition of the room they gave us a new room that was 10 times better! There was still some obvious mold in the bathroom however. Why did they think it was ok to give us that nasty room in the 1st place when there was a perfectly fine room that was available?! Staff was helpful but I would never stay there again.

    Look elsewhere

    Just spend a little more and stay somewhere else. There is a reason the hotel is relatively cheaper than other nearby hotels. AC was acting crazy; very small and uncomfortable, not a good location, renovation noise... hated it.

    Lack of parking

    It is not space for parking cars,and they charge so guests park their cars $ 29.00 per day. I ask them why they charged for parking my car and told me if i wanted to look for where park.

    Great Location

    This hotel was fine if its a quick stay over in downtown Chicago. No amenities or anything special, but good value for staying close to shopping venues.

    nice people, disappointing room

    Friendly service. Inexpensive room not as nice as Redroof farther north, which would have been cheaper. Internet service deathly slow. Room was clean but somewhat faded--about what I expected for the price

    Just OK stay

    I was in Chicago with my daughter for her college orientation. We stayed in Best Western mostly because of its location. The hotel decor felt somewhat "cold" even doe staff was pretty nice and friendly. We had some "issues" with room itself, A/C was very, very noisy and blowing air behind the currants, toilet bawl was flushing so slow and it overflowed. We had repair man trying to fix it on 3 occasions, it did not work. The shower head was also defective shooting out water like garden hose. Maybe because we are used to stay in much better hotels our experience wasn't as satisfactory

    Convenient but you get what you pay for.

    Went out for the Chicago Marathon, and booked this hotel since it was right across from the starting line in Grant park. [...] It took them HOURS to get us checked in (along with several other guests). We kept leaving and coming back. You can hear the trains all night.
