Easy to get to. Free parking at the hotel.
Roomy smelled musty. Furnishings and carpet were old and in poor condition. Staff was non-existent. Hotel smelled strongly of cigarettes and weed.
The cigarette smoke smell that never left the room!!!
Motel with good location
Room's size room cleanliness
Staff was friendly.
Advertised pool but it wasn't open.
Hotel was very outdated
The free shuttle service to Chicago was awsome, I didn't have to pay for a cab, though tips are appreciated. The breakfast was very good and discounted but not free.
The air conditioner didn't work, the toilet wouldn't flush, the décor is dated from the 70's, TV is over the air. Two star material at best!
Location was good for what we needed. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean but a little rough around the edges.
I probably wouldn't stay here again. I switched from another hotel in the area to save some money. I would not have paid the price I did if this hotel was in a different location. Overall it was comfortable and relatively clean. Definitely a unique property. Food at the cafe was not something I would go back for.
Your best Hyde Park option if you are on a strict
There is no other hotel in the Hyde Park/U Chicago area that is under $100/night. The hotel is within walking distance of the University on the north side of Hyde Park, and has a free shuttle to the University that runs three times a day. It was clean. Front desk staff was courteous, friendly and helpful. The hotel sits on Lake Shore Drive so there is a view of the lake; unfortunately the hotel room windows do not face it.
The security door did not latch unless you pulled it shut behind you. The toilet leaked every time you flushed it. The shower head squealed every time you took a shower. The bathtub plug leaked, so a bath required constantly running water. The vanity light took 5 minutes to turn on after you flipped the light switch. Staff left odd assortments of towels, some days too many for needs and other days didn't leave washcloths at all. You need to Google Map Lake Shore "Cafe", not "hotel", to find the correct location of the lobby entrance. It is actually around the corner from the LaQuinta Inn that also shares the same building. Skip the cafe and walk 1 1/2 blocks south on Cornell to Bridgeport Coffee House for your breakfast; you will be glad you did.
Avoid unless homeless
Close to Lack front Bike Path so that I could minimize time at the hotel
Sheets had bugs in them, plumbing backed up for tum and toilet, low water pressure in the shower
Great for solo travelers
Rooms were big enough
The doors from the other guests were too loud! You can here slamming of the front door by rude guests. Not the hotel's fault but maybe a simple courtesy notice would suffice.
I will never stay at this hotel ever again, nor wi
I didn't like anything the staff was rude even the manager. It is more like a motel than a hotel, I didn't feel safe there. You have to carry your Luggage up the stairs if your room is on the second floor. The entry door to my room did not seem secure. Booked this hotel through Kayak, my trip was for 6 nights, we stayed overnight waiting to get into another hotel. We checked out the next morning and Kayak assisted us in finding a better one. "What a dump"
You had to leave the hotel room go outside to the office to get ice. I hate that the owner could care less about improving this dump
Dump.. holes in the ceiling.. stinks... and not wo
Poor remodel... door know is half on, you can see through the bathroom door. The toilet paper roll is mounted FOUR FEET from the stool. Smelt like dead fish. Peeling ceiling.. beds were horrible. Talked to staff. They gave us free breakfast that was a buffet... but the 630 open was not set up until 745.. (they were running behind) needless to say we did not get our free breakfast before we had to leave.
