Nice motel! Clean, basic, safe!
Posted Jul 20, 2013
Nice small hotel, central to everything, basic but great. They provided small soaps and shampoos in the bathroom, hairdryer, extra towels, our room had a refrigerator and microwave with cups etc., mints on the pillows, TV with some channels, desk and chair, armchair, two suitcase holders, closet, icebox in the room to get ice from the office etc.. The noise level is a bit difficult ... you can hear people talking in the next rooms (the walls are so thin that you can actually understand their conversations), people in the hallways and all the doors slamming at all hours of the night. (I would recommend that the hotel invest in sound-proofing the rooms more, and trying to find a way that the doors close without noise.) The room was quite clean as well. The staff was very nice and accommodating, willing to answer any questions. The motel is very cute and old-fashioned in a nice retro way. (Adding something to the now-vacant coffee shop would make this place REALLY amazing!) In a great neighborhood, central to the lake, downtown, landmarks and public transportation. (You can walk almost anywhere to/from the motel, or take close public transportation.) The price was very decent as well. If you're looking to visit Chicago, walk around all day (not sit in the hotel room!), then this motel is the best place you could find in Chicago for the price! I will return!
