Very friendly innkeeper! A nice short walk to Wrigley and the L is right around the corner.

I'm glad I finally stayed here, having traveled to Chicago many times. The rooms are clean and I would stay there again. Prime location to everything. The best perk - the Innkeeper usually prepares a freshly baked breakfast item. I had a room with a private bath, definitely met my needs.

Daivd the innkeeper is very friendly and accommodating! Location is great. Our room was alittle small but clean and comfortable. Nice sitting areas outside the rooms if extra space is needed. The Speak Easy in the basement is so much fun! We would definately stay here again!

What a pleasant stay we had at the Old Chicago Inn! It was our first time in Chicago and initially were looking for a place to stay in or close to the loop, but I am glad we chose otherwise. The room was anything but the usual no personality room you find in a chain, and even if, as other reviewers pointed out, it was not the biggest room I've had in my life, it was plenty of space for two people to manoeuvre and be comfortable. We were at the back oh the inn, on the top floor, so it was very quiet too. The Innkeeper, David, was a wonderful host, preparing all sorts of suprises for breakfast. No, it is not the classic eggs and toasts and peanut butter, but we started the day with plenty of calories to go to lunch without snacks, and everything was homemade and very good! David was also very welcoming and helpful in suggesting places to go and see and give us those little hints that make your life easier while navigating in town. We did not have a car so I can't comment on that, but public transportation is very near and it's very easy to get everywhere from there. Not to mention Wrigley Field at walking distance. We now make it our permanent choice for a place to stay when going to Chicago, it's great value, very charming and we loved the location.

I was looking for a place to stay that would be close to the Brown Line Metro Station with restaurants close by. The continental breakfast was simple, but good. The place has a lot of character.

Great location - used "L" (one block away) to go to all Chicago sights and airport. Four blocks from Wrigley Field. Good breakfast - David the innkeeper actually went out and bought gluten-free bread and muffins. He was very attentive and spent time with us at breakfast. Old-time furnishings and decor. We will be back.

The Old Chicago Inn is a gem. Its owners have decorated the premises creatively, with many period pieces throughout. Having stayed at the Inn on multiple occasions, I've sampled several of the rooms. Some are spacious with large windows facing the street, and others are cozier and more secluded, but all are well-appointed. The neighborhood offers many attractions, with unique shops and restaurants all around. An 'L' station is a half-block away, which makes getting to other parts of Chicago super convenient. But there's lots to see locally, and it doesn't take long to walk to the lake shore. A nice base for vacationing or working in Chicago.

Our stay at Old Chicago was wonderful. David is an excellent Inn Keeper, he was very helpful in providing tips on getting around on the CTA! SPeaking of, Old Chicago's proximity to the Brown/Red Lines is invaluable. We had not trouble getting to the three plays in two different parts of town.
