Years ago, I stayed here and actually had a friend that worked here. I chose here because of location and what I remembered. Today, the place is riddled with homeless like people that hang out on the balconies smoking pot. The room smelled like cigarettes and pot. The pillows were flat and mattress lumpy and uncomfortable. The front desk did not wear a mask even though they were behind a shower curtain (with cut outs). They were nice, but the building and 'tenants' are not great. I guess you get what you pay for because it was cheap.

STAFF TOOK FOR EVER TO BRING A REMOTE AND TEMPERATURE WAS TOO HIGH.. HOT

Very safe and centrally located and close to o'hare and lots of business close by. The staff could be more active cleaning especially during virus breakout. One very bad thing I noticed, they didn't provide hand sanitizer in lobby area or other location. Also heat and air units didn't work that great. That was bit shocking, hope they get that taken care.

Nothing there was a leak from the bathroom ceiling Couldnt sleep cause water kept falling

The only things I didnt like was the the room smelled damp and like old stale cigarette smoke. It wasnt smoked in recently. It was definitely an old smell. And parking!!! Im guessing people rented just to park instead of paying at airport. ALOT of cars covered in snow and havent been moved in days. We had to park at one of the other buildings on the backside of the property the whole weekend. Couldnt get near our building.

It was located in a good area for food. It was reasonably priced. There was some loud people.

Is this property starting to rent out parking spaces for airport travelers?? Because there was absolutely no place to park! I had to continuously circle the property looking for an empty space for almost an hour. I know these vehicles were not people staying in the hotel because the curtains were half open on almost every single room...which indicates an unrented room. Hopefully the franchisee isnt getting greedy and trying to line his pockets with cash with airport travelers money. Its beyond ridiculous that the people who are actually staying in the rooms have nowhere to park.

Decent rooms & great location. Housekeeping needs to pay attention to detail though..especially when it comes to cleanung the floors. I literally watched a housekeeper spray the floor and wipe the floors with a dirty rag under her shoe.....this is NOT how you clean floors!! Also, parking spots must be getting "rented out" because there were MAYBE three spots open and i had to circle the lot looking for somewhere to park my vehicle. The cars were never moved during my entire stay, which is a clear indication that these spots were taken up by airport travelers. This is extremely unfair to the people who travel by automobile that are staying in this hotel.

Property is in an ultra convenient location, dining options, shopping and transportation.

Easy access to in out. Some property is very hard get out.

When i checked in i was extremely happy with the customer service i received from "Jerry".... he was very courteous and welcoming. I appreciate outstanding customer service and feel that he should be commended for his enthusiasm, helpfulness and professionalism. The hotel/housekeeping needs to pay close attention to detail when cleaning the rooms. The floors should be cleaned and vacuumed appropriately, and not done in a lackadaisical manner. Also, WHY is the sink clogged in the room i was in?? Thatvtells me that housekeeping does not thoroughly clean and inspect to ensure the room is in proper working conditions. Again, a lazy approach to housekeeping.

Rooms definition need to be cleaned better. Floors are filthy. Behind bathroom door was a ton of dust, which means the housekeepers dont even bother to clean properly. Found two hairbands next to a nightstand, which also means the housekeepers dont even bother to move the very lightweight nightstands to vaccuum. No tv channel listing plaque was present in the room...which is much needed especially because there is not a channel guide on the television! So how in the world am i supposed to know whats on and on what channel? Also, my check-in process w/ Crystal was HORRIBLE, she displayed below average customer service skills on that particular day. Now, all of these things are quick and simple tasks, cleanliness needs to be above average considering that this is a hotel. Its not rocket science. Clean your darn hotel!

Front desk was friendly. The room was clean.would stay there again.

The "Superior" room comes with a comfortable king bed, in room coffeemaker, ironing board, hair dryer, a small refrigerator w/freezer and a microwave. Cable offers a decent variety of channels, including HBO. While there are a few upgrades such as paint and vinyl flooring, the rooms could still use a bit of tlc. HVAC unit didn't really cool the room off and felt alittle humid, and that was with the setting on 10/hi-cool. Room was tidy but the floors really need to be wet mopped...i say this because i was using wet napkins to gather hair from the floor and when i picked up the napkins they were fairly dirty. Housekeeping needs to do a much more thorough job in actually CLEANING the room, NOT spot tidying up. Aside from the few issues my stay was comfortable, quiet and relaxing.
