              • The enjoyable cafe «califonia pizza» on ohio street, a cafe nearby served a great breakfast and awsome location, because there is a lot of good restaurants. The staff is friendly and the rooms are just ok. Lovely pool and terrace on the top floor, frontera for dinner is EXCELLENT.

                Liked everything about the hotel, the price wasn't overly attractive either and no operable drapes for the windows. The slow elevators.

              • I liked the location and park for free. A great family hotel and good price. Very easy to drive to and the lobby was very nice and there is a restaurant/bar attached.

                The staff were nothing less than perfect, our room faced an alley and the noisy garbage truck came pretty early one morning.

              • The location was great and the nearby Walgreen's came in very handy for assorted needs. Hotel staff were very courteous and helpful, michelle Ramirez at the front desk was very accommodating. Rooms were nice and big, the pool was good to cool our tired legs after running.

                No better place, for the price, I think was an awful experience and water pressure of shower was pretty weak. Elevator was broken.

              • Good for city trips, the staff were very helpful in telling us to catch the buses and many nice restaurants were within walking distance. We arrived to the hotel early was able to park our car without any charge and the price was better here as well. Service was prompt and the free wireless internet was a plus and the TV. The complementary breakfasts were quite adequate and the pool was huge great.

                The street was very noisy all night abd we did not sleep the whole night, the room was a bit smaller then we were used to get at a Best Western and elevators were too small.

              • The location is fantastic and the pizza restaruant that is attached to the hotel is GREAT. The staff is friendly and helpful, the air conditioning works very well.

                The rooms are small and the bathroom is not separated by door.

              • Great location for Chicago marathon, good value and surely worth the money. Nice pool service and spacious Rooms. Loved the restaurant.

                Slow elevators for only 5 stories and no continental breakfast.

              • Best value and location, great hotel. Nice for the money and fridge, couch, 2 flat screens, free coffee in AM in lobby. Helpful recommendations from front desk, employees very polite and helpfull, we ended up in a suite. Near plenty of restaurants, better Choices Elsewhere and the pool also wasnt particularly appealing.

                Without the airco the room was warm.
