3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013

The room heat / AC was archaic. I felt very warm inside and I could not bring down the temperature. The suggestion I received from front desk did not help. The room heat / A/C needs to be upgraded soon.

I am probably being mean by giving two stars when it met my needs which I'll outline later as I want to finish on a high. The room was basic which I expected for the price but what knocked its star rating down was the noise. There was a gap in the window which had some paper stuck over it to keep the cold out. That might have been the reason but the windows looked pretty old to me and I guess that if there was no gap there would still have been a lot of noise being let in. I put earplugs in to help me sleep. Probably you should aim for a room as high as possible to get more peace.

Why did I select this hotel? Because it is cheap and well located. It lived up to that billing. I like to walk a city and the Travelodge is close to many of the star attractions of the city including Millennium Park. I found it quick and easy to go exploring. You will not find a better located hotel at that price.

The staff were very helpful and gave me useful advice.

Room Tip: Aim high for quiet.

I'd probably give this property 2 stars except its the cheapest choice in the area which is a plus. The man in the lobby--the bellman?--was so nice and was always quick to grab an elevator for me. My room was basic, reasonably clean (carpet did not pass the bare foot test--a little dirty) with exposed pipes and an insitutional-type toilet. The diner attached to the lobby was a good choice for inexpensive quick meals.

The Travelodge in downtown Chicago is centrally located to museums, universities, the El and other attractions. The price itself is attractive, but the rooms themselves are a bit drab and getting dated. However, this is the charm of the hotel.I also chose it because it was near the convention hotel that my conference was using. The Travelodge was at least 35% cheaper and well worth it comparatively speaking. WI-Fi was available free throughout the hotel, too. In addition, there is an inexpensive diner next to the hotel where you can get a full meal for breakfast and lunch and even an early dinner. 7am to 7pm. If you stay on the side where the elevated metro passes, it can be a bit noisy, so I had the fan cranked up to drown out the noise. Also, when I arrived the room was very hot, so I was forced to use the AC for a while. I had a jr suite to get a bit more room and the bathroom was large and comfortable, with all the usual amenities. The desk clerks and the concierge were very helpful. I would stay here again. I heard some rather awful things about more expensive hotels nearby, and this was convenient and affordable. The elevators were very slow, but the hotel was full when I was there in November 2013. If you can look beyond the age of the hotel, you will have a good experience there.

Room Tip: Get a room on the front to not hear the trains go by every 5 minutes, or turn on the fan or bring a...

Great prices for the location and quality of amenities. It is an older building, which I found charming. Our room was huge, comfortable, and clean. The staff here is extremely nice and attentive. Being unfamiliar with Chicago, I had a lot of questions about where to go and how to get around. The staff was happy to answer all of them! I would definitely stay here again.
