“Scary rooms in a rundown motel”

  , North Lib
Pros: Location, fairly new Air Conditioner works well, Flat screen TV, nice staff, room did not have bad odors.Cons: Small cramped room, windows look out to alley dumpsters, walls badly in need of paint, most of the AC electrical outlets did not work (too loose), bathroom did not have exhaust fan but instead blows hot air, tub is covered with plastic liner, sink has almost no counter space, you cannot sit on toilet without squeezing against the cabinet sitting sideways, sink cabinet has veneer peeling off from shower spray, shower/tub faucet had barely any hot water pressure, light switches did not work, housekeeping cannot bring cart into halls due to steps so they have to haul everything in and out. Elevator shakes and seems like it could fail very soon. Very sad. Parking is limited, latecomers need to park elsewhere.You would think Wyndham would want the sole downtown Chicago location to be a flagship property, but instead you are greeted by a motel with a chain on a pole and crumbling stone walls. The layout reveals an old motel that has been piecemealed together over the years, with the diner/cocktail lounge replaced by unknown tenants. If you are looking for a simple economical place to crash, look at some of the other boutique motels in the area.
