Inn at Lincoln Park

Recent guest reviews

It’s not fancy comfort by any means, but it’s clean and safe each time. Central location to several major bus lines and the El, good food nearby. I wish (a) we could regulate the heat easier and (b) rooms had a safe. But overall, it’s perfectm for a quick jaunt to the city.

Hotel staff was very rude. Accused of throwing ice out of the window? Repeatedly denied the accusations until they had the police come kick us out. Clearly they just wanted our money. Then charges us a smoking fee when we didn’t even spend the night. This is the absolute worst hotel in Chicago and I wouldn’t stay here for free!

Professional, courteous and helpful staff! Location is fantastic!

Hotel is very old, but the staff was very nice. We were able to check in early. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was tiny and there is no fan. Reasonable hotel for the price.

Very welcoming place - vintage hotel (that will be razed in 2018 for a boring glass and steel monstrosity!). Charming, inexpensive, helpful staff.

Liked everything about the place - BUT the rooms didn't have individual heat, and Chicago in January can be cold! Staff was fantastic - friendly, helpful. Room was more spacious than I had anticipated. Came with breakfast, also unexpected.

My experience was very positive. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Rooms were warm when arrived, just had to blast the window AC, small but all we needed! No fridge or blowdryer.....didn't realize how convienant those things were, great location!

I enjoyed the area. I was able to walk to Wrigley Field. The eating places were plentiful and I enjoyed that.

Daughter and son-in-law were giving birth at St. Joseph 5 blocks away. Nice walk every day. Rooms are small but plenty fine for the price. Free breakfast was adequate. Staff very friendly and asked every day if we had a baby yet! Took 3 days! At the last minute, I decided I had to stay another night. No problem, kept my own room. Bed was very comfortable.

Moved a friend to Chicago from Pittsburgh & needed a place to stay. Restaurants and stores all within walking distance. Nice for an old Hotel.

Only for one night. Broiler was broken so they gave us a heater that barely worked. Small room. You pay for what you get

this hotel location was the main attraction, as my son who we were visiting lives in Lincoln Park. The room was very small, along with an even smaller bathroom. The shower temperature would not stay regulated, the ceiling would peel after every shower, and the air conditioner just blasted all night long. The very small elevator didn't sound good, and had an expired conditional certificate notification. The people were kind and friendly, and the place was clean, and we weren't in the room very long. I would not go back to stay here again.

I've stayed here before so my expectations weren't very high. The rooms are small and dinghy but you can't beat the location. Close enough to downtown but much cozier. Blues clubs and great eats within walking distance.

Great Location..... I felt like I was in a haunted hotel, could not sleep at all. Other than that internet was good, the breakfeast was very basic but low quality...(fruits,cereal,bagels,waffles, juice and coffee)

Great location and close to everything in the Lincoln Park area. The Inn at Lincoln Park has a nice complimentary continental breakfast. It is pet-friendly with a $75 fee per stay. There is also on-site parking available for $30 per night. The Staff is extremely helpful and polite.

The room felt small and outdated, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Some street noise. The evening front desk staff was beyond helpful, printing out metro routes for me and providing useful advice. However, I paid the higher price for parking on the premises, receiving assurances that I could leave my car there after checkout until my afternoon activity was over this was contradicted by the much less accommodating person who checked me out, leading to a stressful afternoon.

Walking distance to Wrigley Field. Good option when going to a cub game.
