Inn of Chicago

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very central location! Could easily move around Chicago and the staff was extremly helpful!

Great location located 1 block away from the Magnificent Mile. The price was right considering the location. The room we were assigned had a very noisy AC system. It kept us up all night long. We couldn't turn it off because of the heatwave we had during the stay in Chicago. We had to request for our shampoo/conditioner and soap on a few occasions because the housekeeping crew did not leave any after their cleanup.

The only complaint was an old lumpy mattress. I flipped it over and the next 3 evenings were pleasant. Location was spectacular!

Over priced for room Too expensive for what room was offering

Hotel staff is one of a kind. They go above for your comfort.

Hotel staff was super friendly. Exposed wall in the bathroom. Tiny tiny tiny elevators. Crappy tv channels super basic what I️ paid for this room they could at least swing for a good cable package.

It was very expensive for the overall facility (room/bathroom/lobby and all) quality and condition. I paid more than $400 per night in a queen bedroom. It felt like $100-150 quality per night. Dark lighting and old furniture. The Google image photos and the actual are not the same. Staff was somewhat ok, but the policy is greedy and too strict. I will never use Inn of Chicago again.

Stayed in town for a mix of business and pleasure - late booking so many other hotels sold out or extremely pricey. This hotel had a great location, decent amenities, and the staff was very helpful and courteous.

Overall, the hotel was worth it because of the price in its location, but the fact that onsite parking is $50.00 a day (and not reimbursed by the hotel) needs to be factored in -- there is cheaper parking a few blocks away, but that is a difficult thing to recommend for those with luggage. The hotel bed was comfortable and clean, but the room was dark and dingy. The window clearly needed cleaning and our view was poor despite being on the 18th floor because the small window was taken up completely by a loud A/C unit. I needed to take allergy meds while there in order to fall asleep, which might be because of the air conditioning. There was no table in the room and one chair with some tearing on the seat that, at first, looked like a stain. The bathroom was fine, but a torn tile in the shower made it feel dirty. Based on the reviews I read, this was all expected and I'm not disappointed in my overall experience but it is hard to recommend this place to others -- especially with the cost of parking.

It was a great experience. Hotel is close to everything and so reasonably priced. Security at the door most days which made us feel safe. Clean and nice deco. We will stay here again for sure!

The hotel lobby had a very chic retro vibe and the staff was very attentive and friendly. Check in was handled quickly and my luggage was carried to my room for me. Room cleaning service was offered during my stay, bed linens were clean, air conditioning worked well, and the bathroom was very clean with extra towels and soap/shampoo provided; toiletries had a nice lemon scent. The view on the 12th floor of the downtown was nice and only a very short walk from the Magnificent Mile area of downtown Chicago. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a great budget-friendly option.

Pictures were way over promising. Our room hadn’t been updated in 50 years. Old yellow peeling wall paper. Dirty and dusty AC unit.

Dirty. Rooms are outdated and the hotel needs a renovation. Dark and musty hallways.

Room was disgusting. Carpet was stained, wallpaper had holes and was peeling off, could not use the lamp because it did not have a knob, they used extension cords to plug things in.

Loved our stay here! In the perfect location in the heart of downtown. Short walk to the river and right off Michigan Ave. Can’t wait to stay again, was very pleased. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms are comfy- especially the sheets!

I was looking for an affordable, decent place to sleep overnight that was close to my office. That's what I got here. The place wasn't high end nor was it the cheapest place. It was exactly what I wanted and expected. I'd stay here again if I needed a quick overnight place to stay literally "in the heart of Chicago".

Close distance to attractions. The hotel was clean and staff were nice.

Business trip. Hotel staff were nice and the lobby and room were nice. The bed, however was not comfortable

It is an older hotel, but clean and comfortable setting. Professional Staff.

Great location, reasonable price. You need to bring your shower cap.
