Great location

The room was rather small, and not many amenities. However, my purpose was to have a clean room in a great location and close to downtown Chicago for a decent price and that is what I received. Not much need for a car since everything is within walking distance.

Good value for location

We weren't in our room very much so the amenities weren't that important to us. The proximity to Michigan Ave shopping and the United Center worked very well for us. Probably the only real problem we had was the temperature in the room was either too hot or too cold.

Good location

The Red Roof Inn in Chicago was a good value. It was within walking distance to great restaurants, the Navy Pier and shopping. The room was very small, and not the best looking/well kept, but good for the location and price that I paid.

Great value for the money

The Red Roof Inn is a very good value for the money. It is a block from Michigan Avenue and close to many restaurants. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The hotel staff is friendly, but could have been more knowledgeable about train services (they sent us to a train station that was closed). Still, it is a great place to stay if you don't want to spend alot of money on a hotel but want to be close to the Magnificent Mile.

Location is everything

For just getting to know the city of Chicago or doing some holiday shopping, this hotel was quite good. The price for the location was excellent, and the room itself was warm and clean. While some of the staff were a bit less than helpful, others were friendly and informative. The unlimited free domestic telephone use was a major plus. Basically, this room met all of our needs and allowed us to have an excellent visit to Chicago.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

If you need to get to the airport, you can jump on a train at the north end of the Loop. From the hotel, it is an EASY twenty to twenty-five minute walk. If you don't have too much luggage, it is a free, easy, and more pleasurable way to get there.

Quaint

Great location and price, but the staff was uncoordinated and really poorly prepared for the evening's rush. Hotel was small, but just fine for sleeping and getting ready for the day.

Awesome location, we did the tourist things like "the bean", searstower, navy pier and some shopping and we could walk everywhere. The room was pretty big and ok for that price. The staff at the front desk wasn't that friendly and helpful but good enough. I would defenitly go here again.

Spring break at the Red Roof

Definitely not a fancy place, but you should be spending your time enjoying the city anyway, not your hotel room. Location seriously couldn't be better; it's in the middle of the city, near a red-line metro stop. Free wireless internet,although signal can be a little weak. If you want a hot shower, let the water run a few minutes, or make your friends shower first. Hotel provides shampoo, but bring your own conditioner. Otherwise, it's safe, quiet and comfortable. Book early if you want a non-smoking room.

Location, location and location!

Room was small and a bit noisy but the old fashioned Room AC allowed me to drown out the outside noise. The hotel is an easy, 15 minute walk from The Loop, Grant Park and the Chicago Institute of Art. The walk to the Field Museum and the Shed Aquarium is 45 minutes. There were plenty of nice but not too pricey eats nearby.

With the money I saved, I could almost afford to shop the "Magnificent Mile" only a half block away.
