Good deal, great position and amazing innkeeper. Just the room...

3.6 on September 03, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Old Chicago Inn last week (labor day weekend). It is a very good deal for non-driving people, since it is 2 minutes walking to the closest L stop (Belmont - red, purple and brown line), and 20 minutes far from the Loop. Prices were not high, compared to the other places in the city, but the room was very small + shared bathroom. Overall it is a clean place, very quiet and we really enjoyed the '30s atmosphere. There's a speakeasy in the basement, which is used as breakfast room in the morning. Continental breakfast is not abundant, but there's all you can need. Furthermore, David (the innkeeper) bakes one or more tasty cakes everyday for his guests. About David, I also wanna say he is one of the nicest and kindest persons we have ever met. He allowed us to have breakfast and use the restroom even if we didn't check in yet (we arrived very early in the morning) and he also stored our luggages, so we started to visit the city from the very beginning, then we checked-in in the afternoon. More, he allowed us to do a late check-out. Also, you can call him for whatever you need inside and outside the inn. We are planning to go back to Chicago in the next months, and definitely this place will be the first one we will get a look for a good deal and feeling at home away from home.

The Old Chicago Inn has a lot of history. It is conveniently located. The El is near by, Cabs are plentiful. Ann Sather's cinnamon rolls are around the corner. The Inn keeper is present and helpful. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and we loved our spacious room (3A) on the third floor.

Stayed here for one night at the end of July 2014. Very nice place. The man at reception is very helpful and friendly and the rooms are extremely charming. It's like staying in a hotel a hundred years ago!

Exactly like the pictures! Loved it!

Dave, the Innkeeper, was fantastic. You can tell he truly enjoys taking care of guests. We had room 3A, and it was exactly what we expected. Plenty of space for 4 People (2 in bed, 1 on chaise lounge, 1 on floor with Blankets and pillows). Will definitely be back!

Very nice

An excellent find!

I lived in Chicago for a time and get back occasionally for a visit. The Old Chicago Inn is located right in the heart of things, within walking distance to all the things you could want to do, and also not far from public transportation. I will be staying here for all my return visits. An excellent find and a great value!

Very Awesome INN!!!

This inn has a wide choice of rooms, we chose 3D, which was a smaller room, but it had it's own bathroom, in the room, which not all of the rooms do. We were not planning on spending any time lounging in our room, we were there to do 2 games at Wrigley and see the neighborhood. The neighborhood is very nice! Your parking is included with the room price, in the neighborhood on the street and it is a great perk! You also get breakfast in the basement which is the speakeasy, included in the price of your room and each night you stay you get a 10.00 gift certificate per person at Trader Todd's next store to eat! We stayed 3 nights ate there one, we wanted to try other place with in walking distance, and walking to Wrigley is about 5 blocks and there are a lot of places to try! Also, another great asset to this inn is the inn keeper, David is super for everything you need! He is a great person to visit with! Room 13 is in the basement and I recommend taking the time to do this if you are there on thurs, Friday or Sat night. It is a speakeasy, the bartender fixes your drink gives you the history of the drink. It is all drinks that were served during prohibition! You have a free pass to get in, because you are staying at the inn, everyone else knocks on the door the bartender goes over finds out if they know the password, if not, they don't get in! The jazz player was so good! It was definitely a great place to stay! Clean, historic and very unique!!!!
