Wonderful hotel near downtown EvanastonPosted Jan 5, 2015
The Homested Evanaton was affordable, well kept and full of character. Close to downtown shopping, theaters, and dining. The service was great, and the man who registered us was very friendly, accommodating had many thoughtful area suggestions. I definitely recommend this establishment!

Lovely atmosphere!Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The open fire in the afternoons, the olde worlde decor, the personal touch.
Cons: A safe in the room would be nice.
Location: Near the centre of Evanston, shops and eateries nearby, very convenient.
Our suite was beautiful, with a lovely view, warm and welcoming. For people who want a personal rather than a corporate atmosphere, this is THE place.

Quirky, but top-notchPosted Nov 10, 2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: Nothing, really.
Location: See above.
The Homestead is an inn in the European tradition--except that each room has a private bath. The facilities are dated, but quaint and very comfortable. My room was a bit warm, but not stifling. The heavy winds caused my window to bang (don't ask), but the very helpful maintenance person promptly found a good solution to the problem. The cleaning staff was excellent and the front desk staff friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfasts and parking are real plusses. Of course, the neighborhood is safe and attractive and very close to the lake, downtown Evanston, Northwestern University, and the subway and train lines. All in all, the best choice in Evanston and one of my favorite homes away from home.

A classic European hotel!Posted Nov 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved being able to control the heat in our room with radiator heat controls. It was also nice to have an air conditioner and the ability to open our windows. It was also nice to have extra pillows and blankets. Group of 6 had 3 adjoining rooms booked months ahead at 100 Euros per night including breakfast and free wifi. A great bargain. Front desk very helpful with many questions our companions had. Great variety at breakfast buffet. Rooms were small but a great value and a very nice bathroom. Would not hesitate to stay here again should we ever return to Rome. An astounding number of sites of interest are within 30 minute walk. Downtown Evanston is less than a 5 minute walk. Northwestern University is less than 3 blocks away! The elevator is a classic. Top notch English bath products, plush towels and is a value compared to other chain hotels. If you don't know what a classic European hotel is, do not stay here. This is a diamond in the rough and we're glad we found this hotel. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and the continental breakfast was more than we expected. If you're looking for an American chain hotel, this hotel is not for you, but if you want a neat European experience, then stay here!
