Good for your budget

Although wi-fi never works, and the whole hotel was like being sent here directly from 20 years ago, where else in Chicago can you find a hotel with such location? Staff is also helpful.

Worst possible

Everything is broken including wifi. Worst attitude. In the second day even the hot water was broken and after complaining three times they finally admited it was broken and did not repair it even on the third day morning. Their ridiculous solution was to offer a TEN dollars discount and their manager just hanged the phone when I tried to talk to him!!! Of course their clerk did not care at all either. DON'T SATY THERE! IT IS CHEAP BUT THEY WILL GIVE YOU WORSE EXPERIENCE!

Simple, good value

The cheapest hotel I could find, and not remotely as terrible as some of the reviews suggest. The hotel is just a few minutes from the Cermak/ Chinatown stop of the red line, and you can be in the Loop in 10 minutes. Staff have been very helpful and friendly. My room was spacious enough and clean. OK, some of the bedlinen was a bit threadbare, the wifi can be slow, some lightbulbs were gone in the bathroom and the shower cubicle is a bit barren- but everything functions, there's a telly and there's hot water. This was much better than similar cheap hotels I've had in big cities in Europe. I'd stay there again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends.

If you are willing to make sacrifices, thisi is your place

We did not find anything this cheap for the dates in the Chicago area that can be reached with the metrorail, so we were stuck with this one. It was not a good experience, but seems like beggars can't be choosers. Description: no elevators in the 3-storey extremely crammed buliding. You have a general feeling of discomfort and lack of safety, but we had no problems. The rooms are veryvery small, reasonably clean, but have a special smell. Internet in the rooms is on and off. Final thoughts: if you're on a budget and care more abou being close to the city center than where you sleep this is your place.

A great place to stay on a budget!

The staff were friendly, the people were welcoming and it was overall a great place. It has a nice location in Chinatown and there are many great restaurants just in the vicinity.

Trip to Chicago

The location of this hotel was perfect! Very close to the red line so it was easy for us to get around. The staff was friendly and there are a lot of shops near by. Not to mention how good the food is in china town! The rooms are minimal but if you just need An inexpensive place to stay this will work just fine.

Friendly staff but very cold

I just spent the night there, it was so cold and though I used the extra heating to be able to sleep, the restroom was freezing. The rest room was clean.
