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.

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.

Quick stay in Chicago

Great location for a great price. I had to get a visa the next morning and it was a close walk to many consulates and a lot of restaurants. The hotel was ordinary, but clean and the staff was nice.

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.

Red Roof Inn - Downtown Chicago

Location is perfect - an easy walk to the Miracle Mile, Navy Pier and much more. Rooms were small, but clean and comfortable. Towels and pillows were plentiful, and all electric appliances: TV, hair dryer, coffee maker, etc. worked well. We'd stay there again.

Great location

This is the perfect location for a trip to downtown Chicago! Only a block from Michigan Ave and right across the street from Garrett's popcorn! Beds were comfy, room was clean, and the staff at the front desk were awesome! Even getting us into our room before 11 am! The only disappointment I had was that there was not a full length mirror to be found. Be forewarned though that everything in this hotel is a little narrow (hallways especially) but this hotel is worth staying at! Would stay again if we go!

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.

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.
