Great location If you're looking for a decently priced hotel with a great location, this is the place. The location was perfect, about a mile away from most tourist attractions we walked everywhere mostly. The only thing is, they redecorated the lobby which is really nice but the rooms need some work. If you don't ...

Inexpensive hotel near the airportWe were looking for a place to sleep after a long flight to Chicago, and this hotel's location couldn't be better! It's just a few minutes from O'Hare ... so close that smaller airplanes are often flying over the parking lot on their way to land at the airport. The staff was reasonable and quick. ...

Nice if you like the hostel feelI started by accidentally reserving a bed in a co-ed dorm. I tried to stay here but decided to change to a private single queen room. The dorm was very clean and the bunks were nice but a little smaller than I wanted. The queen room was neat and clean and rather stylish in a hostel kind of way. The ...
