Recent guest reviews

The breakfast was poor. There was no daily room service

Great hotel. Great view and clean room. Glad the room had microwave

Great stay. Will come back next trip, close to highway.

Staff was very helpful. I like the idea that I had the availability of all the cooking gear I needed to set up housekeeping for a while if necessary. I never need a pool or all that glitzy stuff that more upscale hotels provide for double the cost. The room was a little musty smelling to my daughter, but I thought it was fine. The room had quad pane windows, which apparently was intended to reduce noise. This was successful as I heard no outside noises, and no noises from adjacent rooms. I was very pleased with that! I'd stay here again.

Fast check in and out. Comfy bed loved the little kitchenette with full sized fridge. Very friendly staff asked how liked the room when was going out for dinner . Super easy access to the highway. Great place to stay

Nice and clean room with a kitchen and kitchen dishes (pans, plates, utensils). A special thanks to Kathy who was very friendly and helpful in extending our stay. However, this is not the most friendly place for the families with kids. The beds are high and our kid fell and bumped the back of his head awefully.

It a nice place to stay , I would definitely recommend

Adequate, quiet, plain. It met what I needed with a short lead time to make a reservation in the area.

I enjoyed my stay. The staff are very prompt and professional.

House keeping only every 7 day, or you have to change bed sheets, and towels yourself.

I spent 4 days there with my adult daughter while visiting my son. We ate well in Evanston, watched the Air Show, visited the Museum of Contemporary Art. We toured Northwestern's Campus (which is beautiful)>

Not good, room was not ready by 5:00pm. Room was not ready by 5:00pm. Staff was not friendly.

Always enjoy our stay at this facility. Clean, friendly staff, well priced, close to the action. We love having a kitchen due to our preferred eating selections.

No drinking water. No cooking ware. Breakfast is ok. Front desk service lacks enthusiasm and are just too casual.

The room was clean and comfortable and staff was helpful, with very goid room rates.

Awful slowwww staff. Booked our room with another couple. Uncomfortable beds. Breakfast was muffins in a plastic bag, that's it.

This Extended Stay is in the exact location I needed. The kitchen could be better equipped with a toaster oven or regular oven like the Residence Inn in Florence, SC has (where I have also stayed). Compared to the Residence Inn it is only average not perfect. But it will do because of the location. Same goes for the staff - average. People allowed to smoke cigarettes just outside the front door instead of 20 feet away from door like the Residence Inn and some others. I'm a non-smoker do not need to breathe second hand smoke every time I walk out the front door. Since I reserved through a third party, I could not get a receipt from the hotel as is their policy. But their policy is to take a copy of my credit card 'in case' there were extra charges. So I should have been able to get a copy of the receipt I saw that had my name on it.

It was very nice and sufficient. Breakfast had good choices.

my Family stayed first time in Chicago and it is close to Chicago downtown by car. we had great time. thank you

Our room is a couple steps above a decent dorm room. It was clean, bed comfortable, but pretty much utilitarian. Staff was very accommodating. For the money, it's still a great deal, as it's in a very convenient and pricey location.

Thank you for sharing your review, Although you liked our courteous associates, I am sorry for the cleanliness issue you experienced in your room.

I have shared your concerns with the respective teams in an effort to improve our service and facilities. We hope you will consider us again the next time you visit this area.
