The location was perfect for me. The room was small and clean. The bed was comfortable; I appreciated the chair and reading lamp. David was very friendly, accommodated my special request and made sure I had everything I needed. My visit to Room 13 was fun and interesting. Luke and Tammy, the bartenders, shared great information about the classic beverages while mixing efficiently!

We enjoyed our stay at the Old Chicago Inn. It was convenient for everything we wanted to do. Great Restaurants, Lincoln Park and fun walking in the area. We enjoyed the homemade coffee cakes and friendly conversation with other guests and the Innkeeper at breakfast. We also enjoyed going to Room 13 a Speak Easy Bar with Prohibition Cocktails

Our stay at The Old Chicago Inn was peaceful yet exciting. We stayed on a Thursday and Friday night. We were down in Chicago for a Friday Cubs game and the Inn is in the perfect spot to walk to Wrigley Field. We lucked out with mid 70 degree weather for Friday's game which meant party time all along the walk! Our stay at the Inn was inviting and made extra special by the Inn Keeper David. When we were late to breakfast Friday morning David brewed us fresh hot coffee and brought it all the way up to us on a tray to the third floor. He was always available to us if we had any question about anything regarding the old inn or any part of the neighborhood...or anything at all. David knew the history of the Inn and let us down into the Speakeasy to explore and photograph the place before we left. I'm going to send photo's to them as soon as I upload them to my computer. We plan to stay at The Old Chicago Inn several times during the coming summer.
Thank you for your review. David thoroughly enjoyed sharing the history of the Old Chicago Inn and the city with you and look forward to doing so again this summer. Please contact us directly for all availability and most current rates. (773-472-2278)

If you understand what you are getting with a B&B vs. a traditional hotel, then this is a great place to stay in Belmont Ave neighborhood. Super friendly service, charming front entrance and lobby, great location, great price. Rooms are (expectedly) small and our bathroom was across the hall which comes with the B&B territory.

The bedroom was clean enough, though the air was stuffy. However, the bathroom and shower had clearly not been cleaned since the last guest's stay. The mattress was extremely soft, too much so for my taste. The service in terms of availability to ask questions and hospitality of the staff was impeccable. The breakfast included a homemade almond/cinnamon bread, which was delicious. The coffee could have been stronger.

The location of Old Chicago Inn is outstanding! It is just a few blocks from Wrigley Field and extremely close to the elevated trains. The neighborhood is wonderful,vibrant,great eateries,shops, etc. The ambience of the common rooms at the Inn are very nice; decorated well. But I can only speak for my room, 3D, which was care worn and not that comfortable. The room was small, as was presented and expected, but shabby with no attention to it. The bathroom had no racks to hang towels, no soap dish nor shelf in the shower and a tiny area to put toilet articles. Minimal to no artwork to give it personality. The sheets were also very old and dingy. In other words, the room needs to be redone to make it more comfortable,with more personality to match the rest of the Inn. The manager, David, was very pleasant and accommodating. He was extremely helpful and I appreciated his assistance. I will come back to the Inn because of it's location and will probably take that room again because of it's private bath.
