    2 night stay at Red Roof Inn

    It was a good location and was relativity easy to find on foot.

    Our TV didn't work at all, there was candy wrappers and garbage on the floor from the previous guest, the power strip that was used for the coffee maker had a broken off ground in it, clearly a safety hazard. We will not be staying here ever again.

    Great crew crazy building

    Walked in to someone stuck in the elevator. Pot ash in the sink. Broken heater. Then the employees totally took care of us. Can't beat price and location. The business I needed to do was very convenient. For all the haters, this is what Chicago is all about, get over yourselves.

    48 per night valet, if you drive. Your not going to get street parking until Chicago blue line stop.

    Great Location. Horrible facilities.

    Great location and price for the night. Check in was smooth and a smoke free room was nice. happy they checked my bag for the day so I could walk Chicago without my bag.

    TV was broken and wouldn't turn on. Hair dryer was also broken so much so that the fan was literally rattling around the inside. Heater/air conditioning had a change filter light on which makes me wonder how long it had been since its last change. Shower was pathetic and barely came out of the showerhead. Staff wasn't rude just seemed to be entirely apathetic to guests. Don't know if this is because management is treating them poorly, but Brenda who helped me with check out seemed happier when I smiled and was friendly when I checked my bag for the day.

    Nothing at all

    Our toilet NEVER worked, overflowed, staff tried to fix, but not successful! Our remote did not work, and last night several people on our floor call the police for a domestic dispute! Would never stay or recommend this hotel

    Great location!

    Room smelled like sewage. Cockroaches in bathtub. I asked for "view preferred" and was mistakenly put on the second floor.

    The location is fantastic. You can walk to most interesting attractions. The room was clean and everything worked (lights, A/C, shower, etc)

    The room was tight. Needed to take out a drawer to open the sofa bed. The staff did not clean the room for the second day. Valet Parking is expensive even though saves you from trouble.

    Great Location Great Price

    The hotel is 1 block eats of the Mag Mile and half way down the mag mile so you are right in the middle of the shopping district. It is easily the cheapest hotel in that area. All other hotels nearby are 2.5 times the price.

    The room is a little musty smelling and the hotel is a little outdated but it was a place to lay our heads and get some sleep.

    It was cheap and employees were nice.

    It was dirty, smelly, and everything was old and broken down looking.

    Nice downtown location

    Just steps from Michigan Ave and the Magnificent Mile, this hotel has been my go to place when I'm in Chicago. It's not fancy for the price but it is a good value for the money. Location is key.

    Great location!!!! Room temp horrible.

    The location is perfect for Mag Mile shopping!! The employees were very nice. The price was also very low in comparison to neighboring hotels.

    The room thermometer did not work. They tried to fix it and said if it didn't work we would have to switch rooms. The room was 77 and 78 degrees all day/night. The room size is very small. if you do not plan on being in your room much it is fine.
