OK, so the property is a bit of a dump. What do you expect for 50 bucks a night? Location isn't great, BUT they are the only cheap motel with a shuttle from O'Hare and their shuttle service is excellent - courteous drivers in a comfortable minivan with a scheduled return that departs on time. I have stayed here on several occasions and for an overnight stay between flights I think it is perfectly acceptable for any traveller. The hallways are a little creepy and reek of chemical cleaners - but at least that tells you it must be clean. Don't expect an elevator if you have a second floor room. Breakfast is nothing to get up early for. All of that pretty much comes with the territory at this price level.
The management of this hotel have chosen to invest in the ROOMS and that was a smart decision. They are comfortable. The bedding was of good quality (this is not the Hyatt, of course) and the pillow-top mattress was very nice. There were three good pillows on each queen bed. Bath amenities while not fancy, were perfectly adequate. Plenty of towels of adequate quality. Hot water did take a bit to get going but was also fine (I had to turn it down from it's hottest point). They have the arced out shower curtain rod (one of the 20th century's great inventions) so the bath is more than adequate. The INTERNET was fast and reliable. Walking down the (long!) hallway you'll notice 3 or 4 wifi routers all blinking away. If free in-room internet matters to you (it does to me) you'll appreciate not having to worry about your signal.
Finally, the SERVICE was great... fastest check in and out ever... less than a minute total, I believe. I just wanted to leave them a good review because their management really seems to be on top of things and I expect this property will continue to improve. If you focus on THE ROOMS this is not a dive at all. I didn't drink the water (though the ice maker worked and the ice was just fine) but I didn't notice any odors or "sulphurous" fumes. Don't know what those reviewers are talking about. Don't expect to be pampered, but you WILL get a good night's sleep and a hot shower with free wifi and a convenient airport shuttle for a price that's as low as anyone else in town.
