Great Location

The location of this hotel is its selling point.. Just a block or so from Grant Park. The price is reasonable for the location. It could do with some upgrades in its amenities. On the whole its a good choice for location and price.

turistic and shopping getaway

Great location, near to metro and downtown atracctions at a walking distance. Room cleaning was not so exhaustive, since I found coffee maker not clean after I used it and also dirty corners. Needs to be some attention to clean personal. I hope they would have the breakfast on the hotel facility like in others travelodge.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

small shops are in the neighboorhood at ealking distance, Ford city mall is a public transportation 40min (metro and then bus). Turistic spots at downtown at walking distance, some museums by bus at State and jackson streets. Close to the blue line, the one that arrives to O'Hare airport.

good for the price

This hotel did the job for us. The location was excellent considering the low price. The staff was very helpful. The room was small but I only needed to sleep there so that was not a problem.

Location, Location, Location

Half-way in between of EVERYTHING Chicago. Within walking distance to top attactions, parks, eateries, buses & L-line. Rooms had the minimum amenities, clean bed & towels, TV, sporadic Wi-fi, and coffee pot--all you need when spending a few days sight seeing & shopping. Room temp hard to regulate with dilapidated air unit, but we made due. For the price, I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Hotel Information

The front desk staff was wonderful & very helpful. I wish there was a little bit more information about the parking arrrangements for the hotel. There is no parking at the hotel & we had to pay a lot to park on a daily basis. There should be something posted indicating this so when other people book their reservation they will have some kind of knowledge. All the hotels for the Chicago area should have it listed somewhere - parking is very very pricey.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Need to use the bus system & obtain a bus pass to get around town. Taxi is ok if you want to get to your destination quicker but can be a little pricey.

Daddy daughter getaway

First of all, we arrived LATE at night. I called ahead and that was no problem. The night staff was excellent. Said if we needed anything to just call and ask. Staff was extremely helpful in calling cabs, directions, etc. room was very clean. We were perfectly comfortable. Only bad thing was the water pressure was on the weak side, but if that's my biggest complaint, then oh well. Overall, everything was great. Would definitely stay there again for the money.

summer getaway sightseeing

The room was very clean and very small however we were so busy it was perfect for a place to rest our heads. Staff was kind. For the price the location was awesome. Centralized to most attractions. Would stay again and recommend it.

The room smell really bad. No seating chair. Poor hot water pressure. No hair dryer.

Hotel has no clothe iron, no hair dryer. I have to go buy hair a dryer because I was assuming that every hotels has all these equipments. There's a clog in the tub. The bathroom is small but it needs interior decorating to make us feel relaxing and soothing that is the whole point of coming to stay at the hotel. The TV is old fashion. For that kind of money they should make us feel like this "It is worthed for that kind of price". People are not friendly at all. Very stiff, serious looking and the door man are creepy. Never smile even though I try to break the ice. Overall people have different kind of personality. Who am to judge.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

It is closer to field Field Museum, Willis Tower, Buckingham Fountain, a little further to Navy Pier. But it is further from shopping area. Overall is a walkable distances. I would recommended to a friend if they clean it up a little better as I have mention in the above.
