The check in was excellent. Taylor the front desk associate was very helpful. Having transportation to the game is really great. Both van drivers are friendly and helpful.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The property was a little run down, but still very clean! Our bed was a little too firm, and the ceiling in the shower area could use a paint job. Our light was out in the bathroom, but they repaired that in record time. The staff were all very kind and helpful! The site mentions a hot breakfast, but this is not the case. Strictly continental. They had some microwave food, however, I know many people that don't like that overly processed food. I would probably stay here again for an overnight trip, but not for a length of time. It is in a pretty great location. Easily accessible to field museum and Butterfly rainforest. Very close to shopping and food choices. Just a few miles from the mall. So it is very convenient to get to pretty much anything you want to get to.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was disappointing; old building with little upkeep. The beds were clean but the rooms were slightly musty with old furniture (likely due to the carpet). I would not stay here again.
