Great Location - Great Stay
An excellent stay for the money. Staff was friendly. The past two times I have stayed there the drink machines on my floor were "sold out"...with an in-room refrigerator I would suggest picking up such supplies from one of the nearby stores. The clerk was the only one on duty at 9:00 am when people were trying to check-out and that caused some delays. With that said, the location, particularly in relation to the Purple Line of Chicago's Transit Train into the city, makes this a choice Chicago area location. There are some great eating options in walking distance, and in fact, the entire area can be navigated nicely by walking. I highly recommend.

Recently renovated = highly recommended
I made a quick decision to book a hotel for a night to get away from some home repair work, and took 2 other adults + two children with me. Front desk service couldn't have been quicker or more pleasant; the rooms were updated, clean and had all amenities stocked in the bathroom. We spent a lot of time in the outdoor pool, which was perfect on a 90+ degree day, and ate in the virtually empty restaurant so enjoyed some appetizers and burgers in our own space. I'd highly recommend a stay here for business or just to get out of your house and play in the pool!

Last time I will stay here...
I know they can't control noise from other guests but it was horrible. Also, no coffee. Also a very loud clanky air conditioner. Front desk people were nice but for a little more probably could have actually slept. I will probably never return though I've been here several times in the past.
