Old Chicago Inn, Chicago
It's an okay place. Parking is bad. There is no parking lot. You have to park on the streets and may have to park at least half a mile away. If you are not good at parallel parking which I am not then good luck finding a spot. It can take a while. The people and hospitality are good but the place needs some work.

The Old Dusty Mildewy Inn
The place was old, smelled of mildew as soon as you walked in and was dirty and dusty Our room was on third floor with no elevator or air conditioning upstairs and it was 95 degrees and raining The room was a closet and the bathroom smaller than a closet We left after 30 minutes and went to another hotel The local liquor store warned us about not going out at night cause we may get robbed I was offered a banana from Dave to help with my nausea see picture below

Old Chicago Inn in June 2018
I arrived earlier than the usual 3 p.m. check-in, because of an early flight. Thankfully, I was allowed to check in when I got there, instead of waiting. The bed and breakfast is housed in a quaint building, built in 1902 and has been a hotel since 2003. It's located in Lakeview East, near the intersection of Belmont (close to Red line) and North Sheffield. Next door to the Boystown neighborhood. There's a Walgreen's and a Target very close by. Good points: it's a quaint old place. There are a lot of vintage items all around the property. The property mgr is very nice and knowledgeable. I got a room that had a detached private bath across the hallway. Each of the 3 floors had a sort of sitting room. A draw back is that there is no elevator, but I managed. Also, the cooling unit in the room kept humming. I'm a light sleeper. Also, I did have some difficulties with the wi fi. There is a sort of piano bar downstairs with so many amazing items from the 20's and so forth. I took lots of pictures. The inn didn't have a printer to print out a boarding pass. So, I found a Fed Ex/ Kinko's. There are some breakfast nibbles beginning at 8:00 a.m. Homeless people can be found in the general area. Note: Supershuttle or Go Express doesn't have service outside of the Chicago downtown area, so other arrangments have to be made. All in all, I did like my experience at the Old Chicago Inn.

No charm inn
My room, 2C , was like a prison cell. It was large enough to hold the bed only. The one window looked out on a shaft way and let it in very little light. I dropped a sock on the floor and when I went to retrieve it was astounded by the dust and garbage under the bed. The supposed private bath down the hall was shared by two rooms. David, the host, reports that always gets it wrong and states it is a private bath despite him telling that it is a shared bathroom. The bathroom is old and filthy and the cleaning staff actually throw out bars of soap you leave behind to wash your hands so there is NO soap in the bathroom- is this not a health hazard. What about liquid soap? A few positives- the water pressure in the shower is great, plenty of hot water, free gym down the block, great neighborhood, and good breakfast in the morning. I only stayed here as other local hotels were booked but NEVER again. I do feel the city of Chicago should evaluate this place. Other rooms seemed more spacious. Avoid 2C unless you like a cell like experience. Also very noisy place with no sound proofing any where.
