“See you soon #OHM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Not knowing what to expect of a motel, I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and facilities they provide! Free wi-fi, great housekeeping services, fresh towels everyday, new cups in individual plastic wrappers everyday, air-conditioning, hair dryer, ample parking space (if you get there early enough), and most importantly.. ICE. The motel is in a great location - ten minutes walk from Michigan Avenue - and around the corner from McDonald's, Gino's East and plenty of other places for a bite to eat.

Given that we were coming in fairly late every night, the 24 hour on-call staff were extremely helpful and considerate. I would definitely choose to stay here if you wanted somewhere clean, comfortable and convenient.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are less noisy and have balcony access.

This place is a 5-10 minute walk from michigan avenue. So the shops, the restaurants, the park and the beach is walking distance. The Hotel was clean, the the staff were helpful, and it has free parking. Its also right next to a famous McDonalds which is open 24 hours a day which is extremely helpful when you have the late night munchies after a walk to the beach...!

What more can you ask for?

The Ohio House Motel does exactly what it says on the tin. It provides reasonable accommodation at an affordable price in exactly the right location. Everything is literally a stone's throw away from the motel. What's more is wifi is provided at no extra cost as is car parking. I must add the parking is a huge plus as parking in the vicinity is $35+ for the night.

I met some great people there during my stay and the reception were always helpful and courteous no matter what time of the day.

It is a motel, so you know what to expect, more or less.
This is surely not on the top of my list, both in therm of cleanliness or kindness of the staff ( only average ).

One thing to pay attention.
The first morning we arrived we left our luggage in the room and went out to discover Chicago.
When back @ room we found that someone "inspected" our luggage and stole a key from each of our 2 locks ( there were 3 key in each key-ring and we only found 2 ).

Why stealing 2 keys? probably in order to better open the luggage during our last day? I dunno, but pay attention to your belongings.

Thank you for staying at The Ohio House Motel during your recent visit in Chicago. I appreciate receiving your comments. I apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. The staff is strictly prohibited from touching ANY the guests personnel belongings. Usually when a guest cannot find an article, they call back later to inform us that they had misplaced it. As far as the cleanliness of your room, I can assure all that our rooms MUST pass a VERY high standard of cleaning before we are permitted to resell the room. (Please refer to previous reviews.) I look forward to your next stay! Thank you.

The location of this motel was great, close to many restaurants of different types and a few blocks from the magnificent mile. We walked every where from the motel. It was good for the price, although an old style motel the bathroom had clean new tiles, shower curtain etc. Unfortunately when we were there it was noisy due to other guests, we were woken several times in the night. I think the motel could make more of this as there were no signs telling guests to be respectful of others etc and the 24 hr reception appeared to do nothing even though the noise was happening right by them, this was disappointing.

Location couldnt be better. If you drive free parking means a lot. I don't mind old furniture as long as the room is clean and it was. I had a couple issues with this place. No water pressure and the tub leaked. Biggie though was no working ice machine. We bought drinks nearby at walgreens but with no ice I was dying. Id say if you have kids and drive need a cheap hotel in the middle of everything this is good. There's a Best Western across the street that had a free parking sign. Check that out too. Overall ok beds and pretty quiet.

For a week's stay in Chicago, we were close to being resigned to paying over $200 a night at a place with more creature comforts than we needed. Fortunately, I looked down the list and found Ohio House. It's within walking distance of the El, Michigan Avenue, even points inside the Loop... not to mention Portillo's and a number of pubs and restaurants worth visiting again someday.

As many here have mentioned, it looks old from the outside, and rooms aren't all that big, but they're clean, well-maintained, and quite functional for our purposes. I could have used a slightly bigger bathroom. It also took a couple days to get the air conditioning system (which is centrally managed) working for our needs, though the weather generally cooperated for us on this trip. Other than that, for about $400 less for a week than we would have paid elsewhere, it was a grand and memorable stay.
