LOCATION-LOCATION

THE RED ROOF IN CHICAGO, WAS IN A PERFECT LOCATION, AT THE CORNER OF MICHIGAN AVE. & ONTARIO. THE LOCATION WAS PERFECT, NOTHING ELSE WAS. THE ROOMS ARE VERY SMALL, WALLPAPER PEELING OFF THE WLLS, TUB/SHOWER WAS ALL PEELED, AND PLASTER PEELING. IN ADDITION, THE ELEVATOR WAS BROKEN, AND PEOPLE WERE FORCED TO USE THE STAIRS. VERY OLD, AND CREEPY ROOMS. NO RESTAURANT, OR BAR, AND ALL THEY HAD FOR THE MORNING, WAS A MACHINE WHICH DISPENSED COFFE, AND HOT CHOCOLATE IN LITTLE CUPS, WHICH WAS BAD. IT SERVED IT'S PURPOSE I GUESS, BUT VERY DISAPOINTED IN THE CONDITION OF THE ROOM, AND I WOULD BE EMBARRASED.

Red Roof hotel Reservation for a night !

Was only one night and was fine !! .. The place of the hotel is very close to Michigan Avenue which is the most beautiful street in Chivago in my opinion. Otherwise, the hotel was not bad !! But I expect it to be better !!

Basic needs met; great location

This hotel met my needs - a low price rate, a great location and cable TV on a wide flatscreen - without making me pay for amenities I don't require. The staff was friendly, cordial and helpful. The rooms could use a little more attention to detail, such as coordinated drapes and spreads and cleaner carpets.

Nice place to stay if you don't need luxury things...

It's right in the center of the downtown chicago, close to many attractions of the city that you can walk, or take a train...Very convenient... If you don't need any luxury things, just very basic amenity, this is a very nice place to stay...it's clean, neat, and comfortable enough...

Within walking distance to...

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Downtown Chicago is hustling and bustling with people, and I did not feel unsafe as a single woman walking in this area. It was within walking distance to my destination of the AVP tournament at Oak Street Beach. I walked to Navy Pier, Watertower Place, John Hancock, the fountain and many great shops and restaurants.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Parking - avoid it if at all possible. It is hard to find and expensive. Public tranportation is the way to get around to areas that you can't walk to.

Great Location

This is a good value hotel only 15 mins walk to the Navy Pier, 1 min to Magnificent Mile and 5 mins to the Chicago River. Service was good and the rooms decent. It's all about the location however!

Spotless room, very friendly staff, bed too short!

The location is wonderful. The staff all lived up to the reviews I had read before arriving--really very friendly and helpful. My room, and corridor, were spotlessly clean and the room had all the little amenities like soap, tissues, iron and board, hairdryer, etc. There were lots of good towels. The room was on the small side with no chair and I lay propped up on one of the beds to watch the news on the large TV. But I am no giant at 72" and I found the bed to be short for sleeping! I don't see restaurant to be a problem. They have a room service arrangement with an outside vendor and, significantly, there is a really lovely and reasonably priced all day restaurant in the hotel directly across the street. There is also a restaurant that's part of a high end national chain directly across the intersecting street.
