Very quick and professionally.

This is a motel, 70’s decor, room opens to sidewalk, people loitering outside smoking various things. The staff was ver nice! I appreciated how kind and helpful they where.

Very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are a bit older, but everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The lobby has been recently renovated and looks very nice. There is free hotel parking located directly outside the rooms. It is located in Hyde park. The surrounding area was nice and safe.

It was ok dated…but we enjoyed the location and the views of the lake. Free parking was an added bonus!

The shower was broken and the bathroom was not clean

Reasonably priced compared to nearby hotels. Right off the highway. Not too far from 53rd street where you have dozens of restaurants. Lobby very modern and clean. Rooms are a little out of date. Nice continental breakfast to go. Fresh coffee all day. No usp ports for charging.

Easy access to interstate. Parking was great.

The room smelled bad. Needed vacuuming. Outside window view was the swimming pool Covered with a dirty plastic cover sunk in the middle with standing dirty water on top of it. It was disgusting to look at through the window and everytime you walked out the door. Put the sign out for room service, left all day, and no one came to service the room. Good thing i had travelled with my own towels and wash cloth. No refrigerator, no microwave, non working cheap plastic coffee pot. Spider in the bathroom ceiling. Disgusting! Worst Hotel i've ever stayed at in my life. But i was in Chicago for my brother's funeral and was too depressed to change hotel which was more like a cheap motel. Very disappointed! I would like a refund, please.

Guest services on Friday night was excellent! Saturday guest service was good. Facilty was old and gross. Rooms smelt like marijuana. Not a nice location. Free parking was ok.

The price and location was good. The room was decent. The air conditioner did. It work well and the pool was kind of dirty.

I enjoyed the cafe on the property. It was a lot nicer than expected. The bed was pretty comfortable. I also appreciated the fridge. I had the impression the room wouldnt have one, so it was a nice suprise. My biggest issue was the air unit; it would randomly start making an awful sound. The sound would last about 20 minutes then stop for an hour or so. Also, a microwave would have been nice to have. I was unable to keep my left over food from the cafe because I had no way of warming it up the next day.

Convenient location to the university. Old facility but is okay for a day-trip.

Great hotel, clean & spacious (which you really can’t say about any hotel in Chicago). You can catch the #2 bus or the Metra into the city. Staff were nice, parking is free and available. Loved my stay here.

This was a great place to stay. It’s close to downtown at a reasonable price was clean and beds where comfy

Thanks for your comments. During your stay dates, we were still doing limited service housekeeping due to Covid. Sorry about that. This hotel does not offer microwave and mini-fridges so not sure why you expected it.
