I've read some of the reviews and I must say that I'm astonished by some of the bad reviews. I did not deal with any rude staff members or bed bugs. In fact it was quite the opposite. The staff was more than helpful. They held our luggage, called a taxi for us and even let us get our room earlier than the allotted check in time. The room was fairly simple. It was more than adequate enough for two people. My only regret is not having a fridge. The room did come with an ice bucket and that is how we kept our beer cold. A lot of the reviews also seem to focus on the grandeur of the rooms. For the location this hotel is a super deal in Chicago. If you stay 2 nights you get 20% knocked off and 3 nights you get 30% knocked off. The red line subway is only a block away which makes all the touristy area's very user friendly. Shed's Aquarium, The John Hancock Building and several of other places are within in walking distance. If your a light sleeper you might want to bring some ear phones because at times you can hear the trains rolling by but overall this is a good place to stay. I mean how long are you really going to spend in your hotel anyway? Especially if the trip is for leisure purposes.

Remember folks you usually get what you pay for. If you want to pay three hundred dollars a night for some over the top hotel, then you go right ahead and do that. If your sole purpose is to hang around some posh hotel room, why are you even traveling anyway? All you really need is a bed to sleep in and maybe as a bonus a toilet! (Sarcasm)

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation because my experience was excellent.

Unique Quality: There is nothing fancy about the characteristics of the Downtown Chicago Travel Lodge. You won't find any dazzling timeless architecture or foreign art pieces. What you will find is an excellent location, a bed to sleep in, hot water and AGAIN EXCELLENT LOCATION.

Snobs please look elsewhere.

Directions: You're basically within walking distances to all the major tourist areas. The Red Line is literally a block outside the door.

budget hotel in Downtown

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

cheapest budget hotel in south loop and downtows areas. Hey, it may be old and has a slightly musty smell but chicago is known for expensive hotels and i would rather spend good money to shop than in hotels hehehe. besides it only costs $ 75 a day including taxes for a single king bed room. I may be a splurge type of person but I don't splurge on accomodations since I just need a place to sleep and hit the sack unlike when shopping or eating where I spurge ok! Back to the Travelodge, Built in 1928 as the Harrison Hotel , the Travelodge Hotel Downtown has been a mainstay in the area of Chicago now known as the South Loop. Travelodge Hotel Downtown Chicago enjoys easy access to Chicagos loop area shopping, theatres, museums, and most of the famous tourist attractions such as; McCormick Place, Sears Tower, Grant Park, Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Lake Michigan and others but don't offer breakfasts hence you eat breakfast at the two independently owned restos inside: the Chicago Carry Out and Thai Spoon or the many restaurants just accross the street.

Unique Quality: cheap plus old and the rooms has a musty smell but is very convenient plus with free WIFI. Travelodge hotel, in the city centre, is conveniently located 800 metres from McCormick Place, 2 blocks from Lake Michigan, and half a block from Lake Shore Drive.Chicago Travelodge is only walking distance to Loop Shopping, Magnificent Mile, theatres, Sears Tower, and museums. If you are not a sensitive type of person on accomodations and just need it for a place to sleep and shower, then this is the place for you.
