Decent hotel close to University of Chicago.

Pros: Location to University of Chicago.
Cons: Upgrade the facilities.
Location: You are close to Chicago activities.
Being renovated, but clean and quiet. Close to the University of Chicago. Close to Lake Michigan. Quiet, not crowded and a decent price.

I would stay again

I recently took 2 rooms for myself and family for 2 nights. Although the rooms were in need of some minor cosmetic repairs for peeling wall paper and water stains, they both were clean rooms, free of orders with comfortable beds. Any interaction I had with the staff on the phone or in person was pleasant and professional. My request for the rooms to be adjacent was accomodated. We all enjoyed a delicious breakfast at their cafe with reasonable prices. I would be pleased to stay here again.

Quiet motel near beach

Pros: It's clean and quiet, with free parking, at a reasonable price.
Location: Lake Michigan is a 5 minute walk away and the Museum of Science and Industry about a 20 minute walk.
It was very nice walking along the bike path near the beach to the Museum of Science and Industry.

So-so

Sheets weren't clean, musty odor in room, demolition right outside room, pool was still closed for season in late June! It was close to the event we attended so that was a plus. And staff was very helpful.
