Yvette family with young children September 20, 2022
Positives: Location, quiet
Negatives: Employee Juan T, has no people skills; was turned off by his behavior/attitude immediately. No microwave in the room and there is no microwave in lobby for customers to use. Needed to heat food, was allowed to heat the first night we stayed however 2nd night we meet Juan T who was a complete but hole. Needless to say I am a Best Western reward member.
Martin group September 20, 2022
Positives: Exceptionally comfortable beds. Spacious room. Free coffee provided in lobby.
Negatives: Entrance is shared with other hotel, which can be confusing. Staff does not answer the phone on provided phone number. Receptionist appeared annoyed during our check-in and check-out. Overall okay for short stays in Chicago if you can afford the price and don’t mind the relatively remote location, but in my opinion overpriced.

Positives: The breakfast consisted of muffins, granola bars , apples and coffee. The location is beautifully located on Lake Michigan.
Negatives: The toilet broke, there was no custodian available. We were moved to a room without a refrigerator (to store insulin). Had to keep medications at front desk mornings/evenings.
Previously good experience, this time......
Heidi young couple September 7, 2022
Positives: The room was clean. The location was OK. Parking was included in the cost. Just a fairly short walk to the lake. It was easy to access the highway and get into downtown. Key cards were needed to access basically the section (4 individual rooms) we stayed in. So just anyone couldn't access the front door of our room.
Negatives: The rooms were kind of small and quite shabby. Clean but old and very worn, Room had a funky smell. Could definitely hear neighbors above and those coming and going. No pool (broken and empty out back). Reception was not particularly friendly/helpful when we checked in. Main office was not clearly marked.
OK for the price, but...
