This Travelodge hotel in Downtown Chicago is an Awesome Value, as long as you adjust your expectations. Yes, the hotel & rooms are old, and small, but they are clean and well maintained. The location as well as the price make up for all of its shortcomings as long as you adjust what you expect. Keep in mind you are not paying 4 star prices and this is not a Hilton or Sheraton! Very, Very Conveniently located, walking distance to the red line train, 7-eleven, dunkin donuts as well as the Buckinghan fountain. On our visit we found all the staff to be polite, friendly & helpful. This hotel is a great value for the money, so based on that fact our Overall Rating is.......Very Good!
Thank you so much for your review. We value everyone's review and we do try to be the best value downtown.
The price was low. But the interiors fall way below expectations.
Room 1: Dark. Dank. And a big dead roach (not the small roaches, but a big New York kind) on the floor. We go back down to the front desk. Ask for another room. The front desk person is not perturbed. Not surprised. No apologies. No perfunctory "we will make sure we clean the room up." He seems to find this business as usual.
Gives us a room RIGHT NEXT to the old one. There seems no point extending this torturous moment. No point asking for a different floor or a better room. Not a friendly, caring, sort of human in front of us.
New room. Dark, dank, and badly laid out. The bath tub has not been cleaned. The dry hot room with loud pipes were okay. After all, that is what you get for the price. Thankfully no cockroaches.
I am so sorry you were not happy with us. We try to be the best bargain downtown. We have so many repeat customers who love coming here. I apologize for any problems you had.
We were extremely happy with this hotel that is centrally located. We had a very big room with great value for the price. The room was well heated with central heating, that was a bit noisy although it did not bother us. The lifts were very good. Some reception staff were wonderful and helpful whilst one was just to the point, just like in many places.
Central station is about $8 by taxi and international airport $35 Uber, $50 by taxi.
The hop on hop off buses were just 10 minutes walk. Plenty of places to eat close to the hotel. Overall very satisfied.
Thank you for your 4 star review. we really appreciate all our reviewers and all of our guests!
