Chicago ain't cheap and Travelodge offered a rate that met a tight budget. Chicago is a nice walkable city and, whilst it wasn't central to the main action, the Travelodge is fairly close to the areas you would want to go. The area itself seems quite safe.

The staff are welcoming and professional. My room was on the 8th floor. Even so, the noise of traffic and particularly the railway line filled the room. Ear plugs solved this dilemma for a good night's rest. The aircon in the room was old but worked. The room itself was relatively compact, modest and clean. The bed mattress seemed quite old, but comfortable.

Overall, though not a very sexy stay, the Travelodge provided for a comfortable and convenient stay on a budget.

My expectations were not high for this hotel and I was still disappointed. I got a single bed room and paid extra for the one with a desk - as others have commented, it is quite small. The carpet is dirty - looks like it hasn't been vacuumed. The rooms do not have an iron and ironing board - you have to ask the front desk and they will bring it up. The windows and walls have NO sound insulation. You can hear every car, every siren and the train whose tracks are right outside the window. I got the extra special room directly across from the elevator, so I can hear when the elevator dings and when people are walking in the hall. If you need a good night's sleep or are traveling for business - I would definitely opt for another option. It's worth the money to skip the aggravation and poor nights rest.

I am a budget traveler. I booked a southwest vacation and selected this hotel. The location was fantastic. The hotel not so much. I found a roach in the tub and the toilet keeps on flushing. I also notice that the elevator takes forever to show up. I stayed on the 5th floor so I climbed up and down the stairs because I didn't want to wait for the elevator. The hotel is conveniently located off the L line. The closest station was off the red line on Harrison station. Midway Airport was the 30 minute ride and you have the option of either getting off at the main library station or the Roosevelt station.

If you plan to spend more than 3 days chicago I would strongly recommend getting a 3 day metro cta pass.

I would not necessarily recommend this hotel to others but I would stay there myself just because of the proximity to the park and to the lake front.

Room Tip: Elevators are slow....... select a lower floor...

We stayed here based on the recomendation from my Wyndham Rewards account. The hotel is remodeled from an older hotel which is great however, the remodel is not done very well. I requested extra pillows one evening and they had still not received them the next day. The highlight of the stay was the very kind Bell Man who took us on a ride in the original elevator which was very cool. It's great for the price when you consider the prices of the other hotels in Downtown Chicago and it's a great location!
