Travelodge Hotel Downtown

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We chose to stay at travelodge for the familiarity of the brand. The location is good in that it's in downtown. However, it is also located a block from the fire station so the sirens were a bit much.

The location of the hotel is great for tourism. Close to basically everything!

Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and comfortable.

Good wifi, front desk staff helpful .llll.llll......l.....................L.l.l..L.........................................................l.l.l.l.lll.......l

Friendly staff! Friendly room service lady!!! GREAT location!!!! Overall it was good

Overall an OK, a bit dated, served the purpose of my trip, I was there for a convention so was out all the time. The best part was that it was close to anything that you might need.

Great location for being right downtown. Staff was very helpful with any thing we asked or needed.

i would not recommend this hotel i said there were too many issues

This hotel is all about location. Room is on the small side, being the bathroom extremely small. Very old building in need of upgrading. Broken window glass. Again, is all about location.

You can walk to the Art Museum, downtown business area and lake. Bus #146 directly sends you to Field Museum and Aquarium. Best of all, the price is pretty good.

Everything was fine expect for the the beds. I am 5'11" and my feet extended beyond the end of the bed. With two of us sharing a bed, sleep uncomfortable and almost nonexistent. Very disappointed with the beds.

This is a very basic place to stay straight out of 1970 window air conditioner and all... Parking was an additional $39/night wouldn't do it again...

Close to Michigan Ave and Grant Park. Hotel lobby is updated but the rooms are outdated.

I will go back to this hotel every chance I get to go to Chicago. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The bed wasn't the most comfortable I've slept in but it was a lot better than some other places I've stayed. I loved that I was so close to Grant park and so many shops. we had a great time and looking forward to returning soon.

It smelled bad and was very old and outdated. Staff was friendly though

We were really happy with our stay at the Travelodge in downtown Chicago. The room was a little old and shabby, but that didn't matter much as we mostly needed a safe roof over our heads in a good location. This fit the bill!

The hotel is an older style, could do with a fix up, but very comfortable, good bathroom, just a little noisey on the L side, but I didn't mind as I like trains. Staff friendly, lifts work well. Good location near Grant & Mellenium Park. Good value for money

Close to metro and fast food stores. Walking distance from Willis tower and Chicago Downtown. Take blue line to ORD airport.

Great location, staff attentive to guest and reasonable rate.

Hotel was in a great central location in the south loop. Service personnel were very helpful in assisting location of places to eat in the area. Disappointed in the room. Air Conditioner was not very efficient on the hot days and the TV would not get loud enough to hear over the air conditioner. Would have enjoyed more vending machines except just drinks. Sufficient for our needs but would have been uncomfortable to stay for an extended time- we were there for only 2 nights and did not spend much time in the room itself
