“Excellent budget hotel!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I stayed at the Travelodge in September and it is perfect for people looking for a convenient location but don't want to spend $400 a night for a room. Some people leaving these 1-2 star reviews are insufferable. Yes the hotel is old and might have imperfections here and there but in no way is it gross or nasty as some people have said. Clean room and up to my standard of being comfortable to walk barefoot in the room. The staff were all super friendly (except for one person at the front desk, but hey we all have bad days) especially the bell hops. The only thing that prevented me from giving 5 stars was the elevators were super slow. I once timed it took over 3 minutes for an elevator to open. It's a small gripe but it's really no big deal. I would stay here again for another trip to Chicago.

We chose this hotel because of it's location - between the Art Museum and the Field Museum Complex- we easily walked to both. If you strictly want to hit the Miracle Mile or Navy Pier you want to be farther north.
Our room was larger than expected, squeaky clean, and newly painted. I have no complaints as to service! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Parvez at the front desk took a few extra minutes to help me plan how best to get from place to place, pointing out that having walked to The Art Museum the previous day, I wouldn't need a cab to get to The Field Museum, but that I would need a cab to get from there to Chinatown. Very helpful! There are two restaurants attached to the hotel and it seemed that one of them was always open.
Okay - the hotel is NOT new, some rooms lack amenities like a microwave or a hairdryer or an outside view so ask when you book if you require these items. Some rooms look out on to a brick wall. Parking is across Harrison - not a big deal - and you will get a discount on the price, BUT it is not free. We paid $117.00 for 3 days
One other thing - there is ALWAYS a wait for Shedd Aquarium. The line is outside so plan for weather and an extra hour or so in line. The good news is - you can enjoy a Chicago Hot Dog for lunch while in line so it goes fast.

Dirty, dingy, no amenities, dated (popcorn ceilings & walls), unfriendly employees and just not a place I would ever recommend. Rugs were probably installed in the early 80's. Appeared to be little security when entering the building. Nasty sums it up!
