Pretty good

This Travelodge is located in a deserted part of the Loop, without much nearby and removed from the shops and restaurants. There really isn’t much to see on the interior, and the hotel furnishings look and feel very cheap. Rates are among the lowest available in the Loop, which makes this hotel a good option for large families looking to save some money or for convenient access to events like graduation at adjacent Columbia College Chicago. The amenities aren’t updated, and your only convenient food option is the budget Thai restaurant connected to the hotel lobby. I would be wary of walking around the hotel at night due to the lack of businesses that will mean empty streets.

Sometimes you just need a place to crash that’s also reasonably priced and close to downtown. Travelodge is not going to impress you with its amenities, or its design. This hotel isn’t exactly the thoroughbred horse that you take to the Kentucky Derby. However, if you’re looking for a hearty mare to plow some fields, Travelodge will do the job. It’s located nearby the famed Buddy Guy’s blues joint, so if you’re in town and want to see some local guitar maestros, that’s a good place to start. The décor in the rooms isn’t exactly head-turning, but a nice bonus is that even standard rooms have a small desk in case you’re looking to get some work done during your stay.

First to Review

Despite it’s prime location near Michigan Avenue and all of Chicago’s major parks, the Travelodge didn’t really appeal to me. The staff wasn’t rude, but no one seemed to be very enthusiastic about being at their job or with helping me.

The interior is pretty shabby and old and I just didn’t feel like there was much life to the place at all.

As a big fan of Thai food, I was happy that Thai Spoon is located in the same building as the hotel and for those of you looking for other options, Chicago Carry-Out is also in the building, offering traditional American cuisine.

If you’re just looking for somewhere to crash after a long day of sightseeing, this could be an alright place to do it as you won’t have to travel very far to get back if you’re sticking around the main sites of Chicago.
