Chicago Motels

  • Chicago Motels Guide

    For those traveling on a limited budget or planning to spend most of their vacation outside of their rooms, Chicago motels are a less expensive alternative to traditional hotels. Orbitz offers a wide variety of motels, both one and two star, so you can pick the one that offers the amenities and room styles you need at a price you will love.

    While motels are traditionally low frills, allowing you to save your money for trips to local attractions like Wrigley Field and meals featuring the famous Chicago cuisine at places such as the famous Charlie Trotter’s, you can still find a comfortable option in a convenient location. When choosing your motel, check how far your top choices are from the places you would like to visit in the city. Choosing a nearby establishment lets you spend less time driving and more time enjoying everything the Windy City has to offer.

    Staying at a motel does not necessarily mean forgoing the pleasant amenities offered by the more expensive hotels. Several of the area’s motels include wake-up services, on-site parking, high-speed Internet, and heated pools. There are also pet-friendly options available if you are traveling with your four-legged family, as well as handicap-accessible rooms. You can use the features at Orbitz to compare rooms at several different motels, so you can quickly find the option that suits you best.

    Choosing a budget-friendly motel is a great way to cut costs on your vacation and give you more fun money to catch a show at the Lookingglass Theatre Company or visit the Museum of Science and Industry. You can use the search features at Orbitz to search Chicago motels by star rating, reviewer score, available amenities, and even location. Once you make your selection, reserve your room directly through Orbitz and get ready for the vacation of a lifetime.
