“Bug Ridden Party Motel”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

I am in this motel right now. DO NOT STAY HERE. The place is a dump. There are ants (LOTS) of them in my room, the sink is covered in razor blade cuts and cigarette burns where people have cut up and cooked drugs, parking is horrible, and so are most of the rest of the guests. First night there was a loud drunken fight next door which went on for several hours, then a woman was bashing her boyfriend's car in (parked 2 spaces next to mine) with a baseball bat. This is NOT also the cheapest motel in the area. Red Roof Inn is actually the cheapest. AND they include internet! When you add the extra cost of the extremely crappy internet in here, the cost is actually MORE than at Red Roof Inn, and the rooms over there are MUCH nicer, as is the whole complex and staff. Here, it is OBVIOUS that the owners don't give a damn. DO NOT STAY. This is just a party place. WHAT A DUMP! I am going to the Red Roof Inn and getting the hell out of here. Trust me, and do the same.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms here. Go somewhere else!

This property has been recently refurbished. The rooms are nice and clean. The motel is convienently located near O'Hare International. This motel is a bargain considering the average prices in the Chicago area. Nice place to stay for 1-2 nights. Downside, parking is limited here.

Booked a room at the Motel 6 - Elk Grove Village, IL for one night on 09/01/12. Select the room and "paid" or Guaranteed the room with a credit card. 30 mins later I arrive and head into the office to get situated. I say I made a reservation and here is my info. Then they proceed to tell me that they can't find it and they are sold-out anyways..

Well, I say I have a reservation and here it is. This did absolutely nothing. The worst part was I had to find another room miles away. The lady told me, she can call another property and hold a room. Not sure that was the best idea, considering that I had a reservation and it made no difference.

We missed our connection so this was the place that United Air gave us for free. If it hadn't been free, I wouldn't have stayed- it was a 45 min cab ride from the airport to a unsafe part of town and the room was pretty gross.

This place had bullet proof glass likes bank at the check in counter, and since we checked in so late at night, it made me wish I had a bullet proof vest on too! Can't blame them for protecting themselves if it really is that bad out there, I just had never stayed in a hotel where burglary was such a bad issue to warrant these protective measures.

The room itself was a decent size.

There was a spider under my pillow, long hairs in the bedding, a short wiry hair when I unwrapped the pre wrapped soap, a screw randomly sitting on the floor of the tub, and another big spider in the tub.

Because of all the hairs and the spiders, i left my regular clothes on to sleep, but still woke up with a spider bite on my leg!!!

All in all, it was one of my least comfortable and clean hotel stays ever.

Newly remodeled rooms, clean, good customer service. However, it was a rough crowed. A lot of truck drivers. We watched as one guy escorted a prostitute to his room. There were a lot of "questionable" young ladies around that night.

This is one of the best run Motel 6 motels that I have stayed in. I stay in them mostly for their pet-friendly policy.

I would request a room in the new wing on the second floor facing east. My room, 412, or any of those nearby are the best.

The staff here are great. There's a great Thai restaurant nearby, Thai spoon, and the price is right.

Room Tip: rooms in the 400s

this hotel is in a shady area of chicago. the hotel boasts how it has been "refurbished" , but it is no more than a coat of paint and laminate floors which do nothing for the place. we looked at the room and the bed was pathetic.the so called "furnishings" which included a small rocky table with one chair and a 17" tv from the 90's were less than appealing. stay away from this place ! for about $5.00 per night, you would be way better off staying at the red roof, which is about 2 miles away. we stayed there and totally enjoyed our stay. large rooms, two double beds, nice tv, very clean and the staff was excellent!

Room Tip: go to the red roof
