Old motel but extremely clean! The hotel itself is pretty dated, event the tv show when we arrived was from the 70's. Heat/air wasn't impressive, BUT cheap hotel considering you are in Chicago, free parking and convenient. The bathroom was spotless, not even random hair.

This is still the nicest place we have stayed in Chicago. Even better than the AirBnB we stayed at. Free parking, clean rooms, friendly staff and just the basics at a reasonable price. Easy to get around the city from here. Not far from Lake Shore Dr.

I wanted a bed and a toilet and maybe a tv. It had all three. Truly a win for me. On site parking is really clutch. It didn't have lots of amenities but I didn't need any. I just wanted about the most basic stuff at a fair price which is exactly what I got.

This is a hidden gem in Chicago! While it is very dated, it is also clean and safe. And parking is included in the price of the room. Our family stays there whenever we are in town, since is such a good value. It is withing walking distance of Andersonville and a very short bus or Uber ride to downtown.

The location is very good and the price is right for a Chicago motel. It is near Lake Shore Drive and it is an easy drive to the loop or to north suburbs like Evanston. Clean room and comfortable bed.

I wanted to stay in an old fashioned motel for our Route 66 road trip. This place definitely fit the bill. It was one of those motels where you have to get to your room from the outside from outside stairs. The rooms were very clean and we asked for a cot, which was there when we got there. The...

I've stayed here a few times now. It's great if you are going to Wrigley Field as you can walk around the corner and catch the #22 Clark Street bus. Takes about 20 minutes, you can look at the neighborhoods, and it only costs $2.25. This motel is just that - a motel. This is not the Hyatt. But is...

My husband, 8-week-old son, and I stayed here the weekend before last because the hotel is located just a few blocks from a relative's home. Never again. We had reserved a non-smoking room but were given a smoking room (#121). It smelled strongly of cigarette smoke as soon as we walked in. We requested a different room but were told...

A friend put us up for a night at an expensive downtown hotel but when we arrived at Heart O Chicago the next day I breathed a sigh of relief. Nothing pretentious - we found good clean lodging right on the edge of a service business district and lovely quiet neighborhoods. It is located on sort of an odd intersection...
