Used their park, sleep, and fly package. This is not a big fancy hotel. It is small, extremely clean, fresh, and convenient. The staff is overall the best I`ve encountered in the hospitality industry. The free breakfast was significantly better quality than any other we`re experienced. It is not expansive. It simply tasted good! Upon our return to Chicago their...

We has a spacious and clean room. Comfortable room, friendly reservation and check- in at front desk......The weather was awful, however, our previously snow covered vehicle was cleaned off and warmed up when we returned from our vacation.

Smooth check in. Requested 2nd floor room not knowing there was no elevator. But managed. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Nice continental breakfast. The airport drivers to and back were very nice. Well worth the sleep and park price!

There are lots of hotels in Chicago, of course. What I want to say is that you want to take balance btwn price and location, this is best hotel for you. You can go downtown in 30 min by train. And hotel price is not high. Staff member is very friendly and supportive.

Clean room. Front desk people were friendly and very helpful. Shuttle service to and from midway airport was very efficient. Complimentary breakfast was decent. Many restaurant options close by. The one I used was a Mexican restaurant within walking distance.

Chose this motel to save $$ over staying downtown and because they allow dogs. Somehow we ended up paying almost $50. more per night than the advertised price on TripAdvisor, but that may be due to excessive taxes, etc. out of the hotel's control. Besides that, I agree with other reviews that the staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient....

When I planned my trip to Chicago I was looking for a hotel with Airport shuttle & close to an "el" station - this place fit the bill. Room was very large and clean but how friendly the staff made the choice of this hotel even better. Will definitely keep it on my list of places to stay in Chicago.

Just a 5 minutes walk from the Orange Coast line and with that in 25 minutes to Chicago downtown. Hotel room was clean and OK for the price. Planes fly right over your head, but during the night (11pm to 6am?? ) that stopped.
