I stayed at the Travelodge this August. We mostly stayed there because it was cheap for Chicago and close to multiple el lines (and buses) and the loop downtown area. If anybody is a blues fan, Buddy Guy's Legends bar is two blocks away. It's a block from Michigan Avenue and Grant Park and the massive Buckingham Fountain.
The place definitely isn't fancy and attempts at decor result in a mish-mash, like in the lobby. But it was clean (some worn parts of the carpet), reasonably quiet (especially with the air conditioner on), pretty much dark at night (though the curtain was a little small). We had no problems with water pressure or doors, and the room was actually a pretty good size, which was mostly useful for the desk. The beds were fine. Also there are some restaurants and bars on Printers Row, a couple of blocks away.
The biggest issue was that the elevators were slow and small. The hotel made a good effort to deal with that by taking people in the freight elevator, which has to be run by an operator. Overall--good if you want a reasonably priced well located hotel and don't care about decor or trendiness.
