Great location, not much else

Good deal and great location. But lobby and room very small. Our (2) double bed room was just that - only enough room for one person to walk around. 2 large cobwebs between wall/ceiling and bathroom (also very small) not all that clean. Slow elevator. Valet parking ($44 + tip) worked very well, fast. Beds were fairly comfortable.

Overnight in Downtown Chicago

Fantastic location, right off the magnificent mile, steps away from the heart of Chicago's shopping scene. The hotel wasn't anything special, a little old and run down, but if you are just looking for a place to spend the night that is convenient to everything downtown, this is not a bad option.

We LOVE coming and staying at Red Roof when we visit Chicago. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable of the area. Very close to Michigan Avenue and of course Dunken Doughnuts!

Great weekend getaway!

We always stay at the RR when we go to Chicago for the weekend. The staff is remarkable and always helpful. Our room was clean and well made up. The only thing I could recommend if I were being picky is a picture or two on the wall. RR is in a great location and near many things if you're walking or taking the bus. For the price, ou just can't beat it!

Vacation

Front desk staff were great and very helpful with suggestions on places to eat and things to do in the city. The room was ok. Bathroom needed to be cleaned daily. Bathtub and sinks were not clean.

Great location

The location is excellent - would stay there again just based on location!!! Otherwise, we didn't spend much time in the room - it is small but that didn't bother us. What DID bother us is the lack of a vent fan in the bathroom (very steamy and hot after showers)!!

Weekend getaway

Stayed here before, good rates, great location right off the magnificent mile. Didn't stay in room long, just to sleep. Staff was nice, didn't like waiting until 4pm to get our room, but still was good.

Not worth the money

I have stayed at better hotels for less than 1/2 the price. Very small room, things are old and plumbing leaks. Virtually no amenities and very expensive parking. Would not stay again.

You get what you pay for!

This hotel is in an amazing location off the Magnificent Mile. Surrounded by great shopping, good food and close to the red line. However you honestly get what you pay for. I stayed in the queen room. Our room was super tiny. The lighting in the room is really dark. There is no overhead light except above the front door, and the lamps don't properly light the room. The bathroom door wouldn't fully shut, and the bathroom was so small that opening the door meant hitting the toilet. The bathroom looks like a bathroom you would get in a cheap apartment somewhere. My bathroom at home is nicer. There were also bugs in the bathtub, which is always "fantastic." The TV was broken. After about 10 minutes, it would emit a loud ear piercing static noise. So you couldn't watch any TV. The wifi is free though, which is nice. All in all, if you are looking for a small place to crash, then this will suit you fine. If you want the hotel experience, then I would go elsewhere.
