Affordable B&B in Lakeview

3.4 on October 20, 2014

Small, quiet, accomodating. Very kind innkeeper, nice rooms and perfect location in Lakeview. Would visit again.


Felt like home...

4.2 on October 19, 2014

1/2 block from public transportation. Inn keeper, David, was so helpful...he made our weekend special! Great restaurants walking distance. Very comfortable-felt like home away from home.


Great Place to Stay in a Great Locationeat

The Old Chicago Inn is a charming place to stay in a great location. The rooms are small,yet very clean. The Inn is located near public transportation, so it is simple to travel anywhere in the city. Many good eateries and bars are within walking distance. All in all, the Inn is an affordable place to stay when spending time in Chicago. We would stay here again.

My biggest disappointment is that I was told there was wifi, but then I was told that my room was too far away from the modem for it to work in there. The breakfast was good and the speakeasy was great.


Hats off to David the Innkeeper!

3.8 on October 06, 2014

Thank you to David the Old Chicago Inn Innkeeper. Your hospitality, warmth, and cordial attitude made our visit that much more enjoyable. I am already missing our morning coffee chats. The Old Chicago Inn has a quirky vibe that makes it stand out from standard cookie cutter hotel rooms. With period accents throughout, the décor is eclectic, historically interesting and amusing, and with every floor board creek a sense of yesteryear floods one's mind. Perfect location, lovely neighborhood, stellar staff, and sense of place, allow for this property to forever stand out as a must do when visiting the great city of Chicago


Cute little B&B

I loved staying here! The Inn keeper was super nice and the breakfast was tasty. The rooms are small but they feel roomy enough to breathe.


Convenient neighborhood lodging

Convenient, friendly, and very close to the Belmont station, as well as a Divvy bike rack.


one of the best places i have ever stayed!

awesome innkeepers, awesome inn, excellent location (easy to get to train, bars, restaurants, wrigley field, etc.). would stay here again in a heartbeat!


Bad experience

1.6 on September 27, 2014

We were in the room 2D, with a private shower/toilet combo. Total unsatisfaction for this room : no towel rail, no wardrobe, no bedside table, no place in the room due to an unuseful and too big armchair, no possibility to access the bed from the 2 sides, bad lightning. With such discomfort, the price is absolutely too high.


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.
