I needed to find a place close to downtown and affordable. Best front desk staff I have ever met. So helpful and informative. Ask and they bent over backwards to help us. Free parking and they let us leave our car there after check out to do our last day of sight-seeing. 3 min walk from the orange line. @...

Was flying out of midway for first time, found this little gem of a hotel. Shuttle to airport, clean rooms, nice breakfast, but most importantly GREAT STAFF! From check in person(Alex) to shuttle driver (Steve) all were helpful and very friendly. Not much from the outside but well worth it especially if traveling from Midway. Would do park and fly...

The rooms are not fancy at all but its a great place to stay outside of the city. Fast walk to the subway station. Breakfast is included and it was delicious and there was free parking. It was very clean.

My husband and I decided to head to Chicago to celebrate out 15 year anniversary back in October! This hotel had great review here on Tripadvisor and was in our price range!

On February 20th, 2014, my daughter Meaghan Anderson was traveling alone from San Francisco to Nashville via Chicago Midway. Before her flight landed in Chicago, her connecting flight had been canceled. After trying to find another flight out of Chicago to no avail, I decided to put Meaghan up for a night and have her fly out the next day....

We stayed here when we came for the International Kennel Club Dog Show. The rooms were very large and spotlessly clean. We parked right in front of the room which is so helpful for unloading crates and dogs. Maid service was done every day. The ground was covered with over a foot of snow but the lot was scraped and...

Staff is really friendly! Very helpful and very welcoming of pets (even gave a little pet welcome bag). The pet fees are definitely reasonable. The outside of the inn, not so pretty, but inside the room is great considering. Free internet as well.
