“Cannot control room temperature!!!”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Was told by an employee at the thermostat in the rooms are DUMMIES and that if a guest calls to complain that staff is to tell them that the temperature can be controlled remotely.

Their home office does not want guests to know that the thermostats are dummies.

There are very few bargain hotels on the North Side and this is one of them. It could not possibly be more convenient. Plus, there's free parking (first come, first serve) and the biggest McDonald's you've ever seen across the street. It's kind of a treat to stay in a Chicago motel that feels like a small town roadside place. No huge lobbies to navigate (or stumble through!), just an average + room in a good part of town. You get what you pay for and you get a lot of convenience and the comforts of home here.

Room Tip: The windows open, so pick any room!

We just returned from a mother-2 daughter getaway to chicago. We stayed at the Ohio House Motel , right downtown, on the recommendation of some friends. It is SO easy to drive to, I was amazed. At first glance, the hotel isn't upscale by any means. The first two nights were in an average room, and the last night we moved to a room that had been renovated and was really nice. We did have trouble regulating the heater--we pretty much froze one night because we couldn't get the air conditioner to shut off. BUT....the people were friendly, and the location is ABSOLUTELY fantastic. We left our car parked the entire time and mostly walked everywhere. There's a bus and trolley stop a block away. There are restaurants all over the neighborhood and its easy walking anywhere. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it. They have a little breakfast diner attached and we tried it one morning-rather nostalgic, but don't think I'd eat there again. Also, compared to the other downtown hotels, the rates were much cheaper and the parking is FREE..Its also in a very safe area of downtown.

Room Tip: ask for a renovated room.

Stayed here for four nights in May. Whilst not a posh hotel, the Ohio House Motel has all the essentials. It is a little dated but clean, tidy and well looked after. The staff are friendly and very helpful, with the office being manned 24/7. The rooms have fridge and microwave and cable tv with too many channels to worry about. My room had an enormous king sized bed which was very comfortable.

It can prove a little noisy as it is on the corner of two busy roads, but that is the price of being central - everything is in easy walking distance. That said, it is a motel, with free parking - quite rare in Chicago! This is why I chose it, as I hired a car at the airport and drove straight to the Motel.

Room Tip: Rooms are on two floors, accessed by entrance doors lettered A-G. Ask for upper rooms with higher l...

The room was pretty clean and the location is awesome. Can't be free parking.
However, when I complained about the wifi not working to the manager, he was not very nice. All he said is that there is nothing he can do about it. When I asked for a discount, he refused.
Why advertise that you have free wifi when it doesn't even work?
