Old Chicago Inn

2.2 on June 09, 2015

Rooms very small. No place to open suitcase or hang clothes Shower had mood in corners.


Grea Location!

Stayed in rom 3A. It is worth the added cost if space is of interest. Many of the other rooms are much smaller. The inn might consider new beds. I would have given the room a "5" expect the mattress was a little uncomfortable. OK for me, but my husband had a sore back the next day. David (host) was very gracious and breakfast was wonderful - homemade breads, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and granola bars. Plenty to start the day. The location is ideal. Less than a block from the train and in an area with plenty of restaurants to walk for lunch/ dinner. Nice part of Chicago. I will definitely consider staying here again!


Fantastic Time at Old Chicago Inn

David was so friendly and accommodating and went above and beyond to cater to the guests. There was so much included with a stay and I will definitely be coming back. Old Chicago Inn is in a fantastic location and the rooms are very comfortable.


Weekend at the Old Chicago Inn

3.2 on April 30, 2015

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!


Weekend in Lakeview

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


Peaceful Stay At Old Chicago Inn

3.6 on April 21, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response

Great Location and Value

4.0 on December 27, 2014

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.


Old Chicago Inn Review

3.0 on November 02, 2014

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.
