Dirty walls and light switches. Long wait times at desk no matter how many people were in line. Breakfast was terrible. No selection and dirty tables, counters, and walls. The juice was watered down also. Other people that worked there besides older man and younger woman at front desk were nice. They were very mean. She talked rude to other guests. […] After the first night there( I got the room for three days) we left for the day and came back to an empty room. They packed my stuff and took it down to there laundry room. The mean older man at the front desk kept telling me it wouldn't have happened if I had told them I was staying another day. I asked why should I have to when I should be in your computer and he just told me next time just tell us your staying another night. It didnt even make sense. The air conditioner stayed on the entire time we were there and it never cooled down in the room. The sign in the hallway with the room direction was wrong. Horrible! Never ever go back!!

"Ok if you have a car"
Clean. Personal at the front desk always talkig on the phone and not really giving the best service. Overall very allright for the price. Thumbs upGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We traveled in and arrived late at night- there was verrry loud music and people gathered around in front of hotel. Gentleman checking in was swearing and very disrespectful to worker and myself but was not asked to stop at any point by worker. I waited fifteen minutes for this one man to check in and then be assisted. Our car was tampered with in parking […] lot overnight in the hotel parking lot. The room was very stuffy and humid and the water smelled awful! The light when walking into the room did not work when turned by switch when entering the door...will spend more and stay closer to the city next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"staff is impolite"
I booked a two-bed room, but they forced me to change to a one-bed room. That's like robbery of my money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine for a nite"
VERY basic and not much open nearby-- at least when I arrived at about midnight. It all depends on how much u want to save the $20 difference between this and the next step up. CAREFUL-- they had a sign saying $20 for the airport shuttle. I had called to get the shuttle hours-- the fee wasn't mentioned. I ended up not needing itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Need to discuss"
when i booked the hotel it was 51 $, but the moment i booked the rate got changed to 47$, after visiting the hotel i feel that hotel is not worth even 30$Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"One night stay"
We were there for only one night and although when we arrived, it looked sketchy and the staff was not friendly at the counter...I was surprised by how clean the room was. So, for one night...it is worth it! For a longer stay...I would definitely NOT recommend it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel near Maywood"
As expected, no more, no less. I knew what I was going into, and it served its purpose. I am grateful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst hotel (not ever) but still up there."
The second I walked into the lobby the receptionist was pretty rude with her death glare and didn't even give a friendly hello or anything. afterwards going into the hotel room itself the smell of a non smoking room was pretty awful. It smelled like slightly used rags for the first few mins or so. afterwards I guess your nose gets accustomed to the […] smell (sadly to say) Then to also note the actual TV didn't work so we had nothing to do except watch videos on our smartphones (It looked like someone tried to tare out the Cable cord from the actual jack in the wall cause the hole could easily come out if touched) All in all this was a pretty bad hotel sadly to say cause its actually in a nice area.

"Where's my wallet?"
We arrived so very late. The desk clerk was very nice, and polite. We were so tired, that I left my wallet on the dash. The next morning I was in a panic. I went down to the car and there was my wallet. It was laying open with money hanging out. It was a stupid error on my part, but what a relief, and I felt very safe. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

Overnight with my family here to catch an early flight next day, night manager checked is in a room with a broken A/C, when complained he told us he's busy checking in people so we've got to wait until he's finish. we demamded he take care of us since we were before whoever is been checked in, he got very unpleasant before switching us to another room […] filled with pet furs, A/C blows but NOT cooling.

Great Hotel for a great price, friendly staff!!! Felt secure and got great sleep!!!^_^Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Filthy facility. Rude desk staff. Dark dirty hallways. The one elevator never cleaned on the 3rd morning food spilled and ground into the floor. Staff said it happened over night. No on had pride enough to clean it up? First room had no working TV. After a days work we returned to an un cleaned room no garbage emptied and no clean towels. We I called […] down I was told to come to the desk to get them. No face cloths were out of the dryer yet. I was told to come back and get them by a very rude desk clerk. No iron but ironing board in the room. Ants on the night stand. My work colleague wondered if it was a Flop House or Bates motel. NEVER Again. I have already written the owner and Wyndham hotels the umbrella Corporation for Howard Johnson about the deplorable conditions of this facility.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My Mistake For Going Cheap"
Reserved a cheap room for 2 nights to attend Sunday's Lollapalooza. I assumed that a hotel with "O'Hare Airport'' in its name would be in that general area, not a 1/2 hr $47.00 cabfare. There was a $40 shuttle from O'Hare but it stopped operating at 11pm (10 minutes before our arrival from San Francisco... who knew?) Once there we were greeted with […] obvious confusion: another 1/2 hr wait for the staff to clean a room, an additional 1/2 hr for the guy to bring us a remote control for the unwatchable relic once called a television ("...I found this one in the basement for you!"). The air-conditioner was installed at foot-level and ineffective. I could not sleep feeling like such a loser so I spent most of the night on a terrible internet connection finding a more appropriate hotel to our needs, for a sum much less than the transportation required for the to-and-fro into downtown Chicago's Grant Park. We checked out the next day/ate the lousy $50/second night with glee. Live & learn: you get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"don't expect a lot"
Booked this hotel cuz it was cheap n I could drive to the blue line. Didn't expect a lot. Got what I expected. Beds n room was cleaned every day and towels replenished. Brought a cooler cuz $15 extra for a fridge or microwave. Continental breakfast is done on the cheap.Expect cheap donuts, cereal, make your own oatmeal from a bag. Bad coffee n stopped […] serving by 945. A microwave at breakfast would have been nice. Nice staff in morning. Rude staff late at night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine hotel for a night"
Experience was fine. There is no pool and a pretty lackluster exercise room. There are no refrigerators or microwaves in the room but overall the rooms are just fine. Hotel was perfect for what we needed-a night close to the airport with restaurants nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
The first night air condition didn't work well but the staff upgraded us to the 3rd floor the remainder of our stay. Much better room including the mattress than on 2nd floor. There was some confusion regarding charges for a pet but I was pleased that they were pet friendly. I would stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is right off Rte 83 on Lake street. Somehow in the middle of stay my room was given to someone else - and the poor guy was as shocked as I to learn that he was given a key to someone else's occupied room... With such "computer error" we both should have asked for refund!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Major makeover needed"
I should have read the reviews first before booking this hotel. The hotel needs to be redone in all aspect.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were just in the area for the weekend and we figured this would be a good cheap home base for the weekend in Chicago. We arrived and it was what we expected. Nothing more, nothing less. We were barely there, so it was really just a good place to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
We didn't expect too much for the amount we paid for the rooms as we were on a budget; but the service was not very good. The hotel staff was nice but the general managers were a bit rude and unorganized. 1 or 2 of the managers shouted at people. A lot of unnecessary arguing took place. The rooms were clean. The breakfast was very basic-no meat. The […] hotel staff was very nice and offered to help in any way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good stay atn the ho jo hotel"
very nice stay , clean rooms and good serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Non-smoking rooms smelled like smoke. Outside exterior was dilapidated. Took over half hour to check in. Appearance of staff was very sloppy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place should NOT be billed as an airport hotel! It's 12 miles away and cost me almost as much as the room rate to get here in a cab because it's not in the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sub-standard. Very disappointed!!!!"
The details online said that it was right next to the airport. Well that was way off. The hotel staff was loudly arguing with customers. It was nearly to the point of screaming. The "breakfast" was gross. The orange juice was basically orange colored water. The tv did not work in the room. The ice bucket had dirt and debris in it. Everything was dirty. […] The carpet was stained and common areas smelled. The doors were covered in grime. If it was not 2:30 in the morning we would have left and found somewhere else. I would have rather slept in my rental car. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dirty Hotel Stay"
It was the worst hotel stay I have ever had. The room was dirty and there was rotting meat in the fridge. The hotel hallways and lobby were dirty and the staff is unfriendly and did not provide any service when needed. I was truly disappointed because Howard Johnson hotels are normally a lot better than this one was.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a great impression."
Horrible time during my stay, which was only one night. To start with, the reception staff were fighting with a client that had reserved her room before she arrived, but the gave the room to another person. This happened before I checked in. The overall view of the hotel is that of a scary movie. The lights in the hallways don't work. The decoration […] looks like it was taken out of The Shining. My room had ants on the floor and was not orginized correctly. The phone was dirty. The shower did not work. The lighting fixtures were outdated as well as the TV. The pictures in the advertisement look nice, however, it is not the real look. The staff has serious problems with customer service or organization skills. The new guy that was there clearly stated he was new and didn't know how to handle the booking system. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would never stay again"
Arrived to our Hotel at 11:30pm, and upon arrival, walk into the Lobby to an irate group of people who's rooms were not ready (dirty) and double booked. After receiving my key, I went to my room to find that it too was not cleaned yet from a prior guest, and the lights didn't work. I told the front desk, and they offered me the only room available which […] was in smoking and a single bed, to which I declined as we had 4 people staying, who aren't smokers. The front desk then went and cleaned the room (not well) which in all took 1 1/2 hours, as we waited in the lobby, listening to all of those other people yelling. The Hotel owner was working at the time and didn't act like it was a big deal at all that we were waiting there all that time and didn't even acknowledge us sitting there. When we finally got into our room, we turned on the air and it sounded like a train it was so loud, and when trying to shower in the morning, the hot water wasn't working, only to find out that there was a "trick to it" and the hot was cold and the cold was hot! Surprise! Definitely would not stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We arrived to find out the elevator didn't work. it turned out the sensor was covered but at the time no one knew. They were nice enough to relocate us to a handicapped room on the first floor since I was in a wheelchair. Water pressure in sink was terrible and you could never get hot water. the third night of our four night stay we were not given new […] towels or toiletries. Beds were clean and sc did work fine. Also besides the manager front desk help was rude and our room keys did not work any night we were there. Def wont be spending night at a howard Johnson any time soon Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"7PM Check in-Really the room isn't clean??"
I got to the hotel around 11AM, knowing I couldn't check in until 3 PM. I had business around town so I went and did my thing and returned around 7 PM. The staff asked if I would take a smoking room, I wouldn't so I was told the only non smoking room isn't clean yet. Really at 7 PM??? I went to grab something to eat and when I returned to the room, […] it was cleaned but the staff left the last occupants left over food container and half bottle of water on the table. Needless to say , I will not return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cheap place to stay"
I found this hotel is one of the less expensive hotels near to freeway. the staff were good. there is no printer facility. there is no fridge and oven available in the room (of course they are charging some extra per day if you wish to have fridge and oven).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Value for Money"

"Dark and dingy."
This hotel needs updating and better curb appeal. Hard to find at night not very well lit after dark. The management is very rude when requesting extra towels and the traffic back into the city is terrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
I was able to book this hotel at the last minute for a very low rate. For that reason, my expectations were low. The hotel was old and very dated. There were no plugs conveniently located to power any of my devices. Several of the lamps had lightbulbs that didn't work. I asked that replacement bulbs be provided. They said they would but it never happened. […] The electricity failed during my visit. They sent us to another hotel which was even worse and very far away. I wouldn't recommend the hotel at all. But it was for a very low rate so you get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson Hotel"

"Not worth a try!"
The hotel staff doesn't even try to be good with customers. We reached the hotel at 11 PM and waited at front desk for 15 mins without even a simple “Hi”. Check-in process took forever even after we had a confirmed reservation. We had booked the room for 4 adults and they did not leave enough towels or soap in the room. They have advertised free breakfast […] while booking but you will not see the minimum number of items available anywhere else and that too there is no staff around to ask for plates when it runs out. All they had was Breads, Bagels and Cereals. The second day morning, I found that they had spoilt milk in the breakfast table and that shows how careless the staff and management of the hotel are with breakfast service. Cleanliness? - Are you kidding?? As soon as you enter the hotel, you will feel a weird stench and that would get you to think again on why you booked this hotel. The a/c in the room make so much noise and it was beyond manageable to sleep peacefully. We shifted to fan which helped reduce the noise but did not help with the humidity in the room. The bathroom exhaust fan did not work and thereby creating a bad odor throughout our stay. Hotel noted it down stating that it would be fixed that day but that did not get fixed. The key did not work the second night and there were at least 2 others in queue with the same problem to get it fixed. Overall, I will never return back to this hotel and you may want to think several times before booking this one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
