The property is really cool, a mid century modern motel with a cool cafe in a nice part of town. I decided to book this place because of the free parking. There were no indications on length of parking on the website, and I was really disappointed when the manager told me I needed to move my car upon checkout. Kind of defeats the entire purpose of having parking when visiting from out of town.

Very Clean rooms... right in the heart of Chicago downtown. Free parking also, which saves a lot of money. Had a blast and will for sure stay here again. PS... it was a bit noisy outside being right on Ohio street... but hey, that's Chicago. If you are not a super light sleeper, you will do fine.

The price was right, clean and neat rooms, good support staff, and you could park next to your room in the middle of Chicago. I will stay there again.
