Old hotel that has it’s charms. Staff was friendly. Room and property was clean. Great location.

Nice, clean and convenient to downtown city. I would definitely go back.

The building could use some more updating, but I enjoyed the older feel of the spaces inside. The location is great, not far from the Art Institute, Field Museum, Millennium Park, and other destinations. The people there were very friendly and helpful.

They never changed our sheets, they just remade the bed and folded things into the bed. We had dirty towels given to us in our bathroom that had dirt on them. Another had a giant hole in the middle. The microwave that was on the 12th floor for guests was dirty and the handle on our room door was broken. Worst stay I have ever had in a hotel anywhere much less in the city of Chicago

Is too old no clean and the staff during day are not friendly. Also they charge of 100 hundres when arrived and after I checked out they give the amount and later at home they chrarge 50 more and when I called they said that they charge 50 for the clean service, but said that before

In my experience I am very dissatisfied with the conditions of this hotel, the 10th floor that I had a very strong smell of old or very dirty humidity and my room the smell was much stronger I reported it to reception and the lady answered me well that's the only thing we have. I had two nights to stay I could not only stay one more night apart it became very expensive for the conditions of the room

It’s an older hotel so you expect it not be the most updated. But for the price and the area it’s located in, it’s a good deal if your not wanting spend $300 a night on a room. Having to different restaurants attached to the hotel also helped make up for anything it lacked

The staff was friendly. The room was just out dated.

There were several issues with the room i need to address and will be requesting a refund for my stay. First the staff were incredibly rude, i had called a few times through the day just checking to see if there was any availability for early check in as my flight landed earlier then expected. Each time the staff was incredibly rude and even hung up the phone on me. When getting to the hotel to check in, the front desk agent and the security officer were incredibly rude as well and made it seem as if it was an inconvenience for us to be checking in at 3pm. Then we finally got up to the room, which was disgusting, the window has a large crack in it that i cut my finger on when inspecting it. The heater was on full, the bathroom was unacceptable, and the bedding was horrendous, when i tried to sleep i when to pull up the covers and the entire spread came up, and i saw how gross the mattress i had to sleep on was. I called down to the front desk multiple times asking for them to turn the heat off for my room and they said they will send someone up… no one ever came up. The tub in the bathroom is poorly installed and you could feel weak spots in it, i was scared to shower in there. This has by far been my worst experience at any hotel ever. And i will never be staying with this property again.

awesome hotel

Bugs in the bathroom. Ants and cockroach. Would not stay again.

Easy breezy just what I expected and better.

Upon arrival found out we had to pay 46$ for parking , requested a late Check out was told We couldn’t get a late check Out , went For breakfast was told There was no breakfast “ We was highjacked “ because we stated it was on the website as a hot Breakfast manager laughed and stated we got Highjacked , room smelled Moldy there was blood stains and burn holes in sheets and hair in tub very disappointed

People either love or hate this property. You have to take it as it is. It's a 100-year old hotel that has been retrofitted for today's traveler. Bare bones, no frills, old, outdated... but... it is clean, relatively quiet and an amazing location, especially for the price!

Clean and safe place that is well-located.

We loved the service from the front desk. Tatiana and Mike went out of their way as we arrived early. Held our bags for us, suggested a place to eat and checked us in early. Their personalities and kindness throughout our stay is what would bring us back to the hotel. The hotel rooms are a bit outdated. The service top notch!!!!

No hot water and very old and dirty

Service was upsetting. It wasn't a busy hotel at all to have such crappy customer service. The employee said my personal information outloud for everyone in the lobby to hear including my room number. That's a matter of safety!

Good location. Room was clean enough. We were told we could check in at 3, but our room wasn’t ready at 5. Quite a few guests not properly wearing mask in lobby.

Dear Matthew, Thank you for choosing Travelodge Downtown, I'm sorry you were disappointed in our stayover service but we are a Green Property which means we only change sheets in stayover rooms if they are visibly stained or the guests request, its away to conserve water, chemicals and waste. as far as the towels and microwave I'm am personally speaking with that team and it will be addressed. Thank you again for your valued feedback.
