No fridge. Not fancy. BUT very clean and centrally located for North Chicago, an easy walk to Andersonville strip of restaurants bars and shops.

Completely underrated place to stay. The area around motel is very nice with many restaurants and businesses to check out. Also, easy access to bus and the L for getting around. Stayed there twice and will definitely be back.

Location was excellent. Older building but appeared clean. Beds were soft. Staff could have been a bit more friendly

awesome pleasant stay will return for sure sooooon

Could be better to have a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. Overall, everything else is fine.

Room was very clean. Location was great Will stay here again next time we are in Chicago

Nice well kept up vintage motel. Clean, easy check in, free Wi-fi, nice location and affordable. Would gladly stay there again in the future.

The hotel is clean and the room is clean and comfortable. The room smells like mildew a little.

The price is reasonable. Parking was crowded on friday night.

It was very clean. It has been upkept well. I like the vintage feel and look. The staff were very friendly. Very convenient to public transportation. This was my second stay there. And when i come back i will book with them again. Thanks HOC.

awesome for the price. very clean and nice friendly receptionist.

The hotel has standard amenities and everything would be okey if not for the unbearable smoking and moldy odor. I coudn't breeth at all! The whole night I was waiting for the morning to come to get out of this hotel as soon as possible. Never again!

We had a GREAT experience at the Heart O' Chicago! The hotel is close to all of the city's main attractions and is located in a safe neighborhood. It's also walking distance to the "L", which is a plus to get around everywhere. The room was very clean, efficient and spacious. What made our stay even better was how accommodating the manager of this hotel was. He was kind enough to provide us with a roll away bed to make my group more comfortable in the room and always made sure we had what we needed. These people go above and beyond for their guests... Thank you Heart O' Chicago!

This hotel is older but is oh so convenient for attending a game! Catch bus 22 at the corner and it drops you right in front of stadium. From there you can catch the red line to anywhere. It is a 20 min Uber ride to Navy Pier. The "breakfast" is not much but can carry you over until lunch. There is a White Castle next door. The front desk was very accommodating to our special requests. Check in was quick and easy and we were actually able to check in alittle early as our room was ready. Over all pleased with accommodations.

This hotel is great, it's very simple, no frills, but you get what you need, especially for the price. It's walking distance to the CTA, and rental bikes, and the lake front. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was simple, but good in a pinch. The tv's are a little outdated, but I didnt go to Chicago to watch tv. No iron unfortunately.

Hotel is very basic, decor is stuck in the late 70's/early 80's but generally clean. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, they helped us arrange to get a wheelchair delivered and returned and made sure we got a ground floor room. Free parking, which is a huge savings in Chicago, particularly in that area where almost nobody has parking. Close to major transit and Broadway Armory (where our event was held).
