Nice hotel on next to Lake Shore for great price

Posted 11-Oct-2015
We usually stay in Schaumburg when we go to Chicago because rates are a little cheaper but we wanted to stay closer so we didn't have to drive 45 minutes into the city. This place offers free parking and the rooms are nice. I was a little sceptical when I read the reviews but was impressed when we got there. You cannot hear the traffic from Lake Shore Drive. They offer coupons for a discounted buffet breakfast at the restaurant right next to the hotel which was amazing and totally worth $7pp!!! The hotel also offers a shuttle service that will take you to certain places. We saved $25 in parking because it took us to The Museum of Science and Industry. I would definitely stay here again!

Inexpensive but clean

Posted 02-Oct-2015
Pros: Cleanliness.
Cons: Get some new bed linens.
Location: See above.
The room was very simple, but very clean. Furnishings and sheets are worn, towels are very thin, but everything is usable. Bed comfort was okay. Staff was helpful but seemingly very busy. There is no charge for parking, which is a plus in Chicago, and it was near where I needed to go. If you are looking for restaurants, the hotel was very close to the Hyde Park area, which has a number of very good restaurants. Overall, it fulfilled the purpose for which I was in Chicago, and was clean and quiet.

Decent hotel very conveniently located

Posted 02-Oct-2015
Pros: Location and price. Free parking.
Cons: The rooms could use some remodeling and be better configured to reduce noise of opening/closing doors and etc by other guests.
Location: Located on lake shore, easy access to trails and parks. Very close to UChicago.
Had a comfortable stay at the hotel. Very convenient for visiting UChicago and for getting to downtown Chicago.

The hotel is seedy. Sink backed up and water was leaking from the pipe. It was also very noisy.

Hard to locate . Hotel moved to around corner .

Posted 12-Sep-2015
Pros: The parking near the rooms.
Cons: Cleaner rooms, repairs and more amenities.
Location: The lake is near and the highway.
When I opened the first door the hallway smelled very bad and looked very worn. When I opened the room door the odor of the room was stronger. The rug had a strong foul odor. We notified the front desk and the next day the room was some what cleaner they cleaned the rug. There were complaints that cars were being broke into over night one guest slept in her car over night.

Ill never use Expedia Again!

Posted 07-Sep-2015
Pros: Nothing! it was a mess.
Cons: Advise people of the additional charges each day. The location is confusing as the name of the hotel has change several time and now, they've split
Location: noting in walking distance
Upon my arrival the hotel did not have my reservation and had no way of contacting Expedia to straighten out the issue. Final a manager did honor my reservation and allowed me to get the room. After a two night stay where they didn't even have Wifi i discover I was charged an additional $35.00. I'll never stay at the hotel again nor, will I use Expedia again. Overall, the weekend was hijacked by the hotel issues.

Good Value

Posted 03-Sep-2015
Location: Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants (1/2 mile) and right on the lake. Easy to hop on Lake Shore Blvd to get downtown, etc.
Pleasant staff, accommodating to allow us to leave our car parked then entire day after we checked out. Shuttle bus to UCMC was extremely helpful and saved us the parking fees associated with our time there. The room was fine but the carpet was old and stained and pulling away from the wall. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean.
