Not a good choice if you are looking for good staff attitudes and efficient shuttle service. We used this hotel for Stay and Fly. The hotel building itself is outdated but the room seemed to have been updated except for the bathroom. When I tried to check in, there was no clerk at the desk. After calling out a couple...

We picked this hotel for the 14 days free parking and 24 hour shuttle service to and from the airport. However, they did not follow through and offered no assistance. We arrived Friday evening and requested 5am Shuttle to airport as we were traveling international and flight left at 7:30. Saturday we got to front desk at 4:50 for our...

Dear Guest, We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay.During the month of January our parking lot tends to be busy due to us being full occupancy and many of our guests taking advantage of the park and fly program while traveling. Please feel free to contact me next time directly and I will make sure all...

The hotel was clean. Now for the bad....there is no parking here, people were parking up on the curb which is dangerous for everyone. If your car gets damaged by another vehicle or said curb they don't take your vehicle information anyway. The heat in the rooms is nonexistent even with raising the temperature. The walls are paper thin...I mean...

During this time of the year we have many guests that take advantage of our park and fly packages so the parking lot can get full sometimes. We try our best to accommodate all of our guests.We hope to see you again at a time where it is not crowded.

My son and I stayed here to be close to the airport for an early flight. I only chose this hotel because everything else closer and nicer was booked!

We stayed here the night before our flight and utilized the Park & Fly. The ride took about 15 minutes from the hotel to our terminal. Our room was very comfortable and clean.

“Our third floor room was nicer (newer carpet and furnishings) than the second floor room. Perhaps due to a more recent update.”

“Bear in mind this is near O'Hare, so you do hear planes overhead. All I can say is that I was on the second floor, closer to the front door, and I was not bothered by noise. I was surprised---pleasantly---that the window actually opened, so if you have kids you might want to stick with the first floor rooms.”
