Mission accomplished.
trip to Chicago. We needed a hotel with 2 rooms and 2 queen beds. It was one of the few that could accommodate us.

cigarettes and mold
Hotel has a bit of a mold at the entrances and smell is difficult to endure. Also cigarette butts at every entry just thrown on the ground. It looked awful. If I had not already paid for my stay I would have gone across the street.

I have had better for the cost.
They try to shake you down for a $50 cash deposit to be refunded at check out when it is determined that you did not smoke in he room. I do not smoke. They waived it when I said that I would cancel and go elsewhere. The room already has signs of past smoke odor. The treadmill in the fitness room does not work. The metal door to my room looked like it has been pried into before.

talk about run down.
in my room the smoke alarm was missing, there was a huge tare in the carpet, there was no grout for the bathroom tiles (which where cracked and loose), and the shower was a pipe coming out of the center of the ceiling, the only redeeming feature was the bed was clean and comfortable.

Great beds make this a no frills bargain
We stayed here on our way to the Indiana Dunes Lakeshore and it was better than we expected. Don't count on the free breakfast as it didn't offer much at all and the lobby, hallways, and parking lot could use a revamping. The room itself, however was spacious and the beds and bedding were very pleasant and comfortable. The location right next to Cracker Barrel was a nice plus- especially considering the poor quality of the free breakfast. Other issues: a loose tile in the bathroom made me glad I didn't have small children, outdated tv, and the pool room deemed so very warm and chlorinated that we had no desire to get in it. Still, I gave it a decent rating due to those beds as if all of the other things are there, but the rooms are noisy and the beds are poor then it is a bad experience. Ours was good.
