      Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Chicago

      Fantastic location

      from

      We just arrived home after a three night stay at the Days Inn in Lincoln Park and can thoroughly recommend it. Its central location makes it perfect for trips downtown and especially to Wrigley Field and it's only a short walk from the nearest CTA station, which makes it easy and cheap to get around (even from O'Hare). The rooms are large, clean and well equiped and the staff helpful and friendly. Lincoln Park is also an excellent area for bars and restaurants. In short the Days Inn is cheap but truely cheerful!

      Absolute worst!

      from

      We stayed here several years ago and I still have the scar on my leg from climbing over the bed and radiator to get to the bathroom. As far as we saw, there was one elevator that only seemed to move when it felt like it. The room was dirty, small and seedy. With the exception of the bellman, the staff was rude and didn't seem to give a hoot if you were there or not. NO parking to speak of. We parked in a parking garage about 3 blocks away.

      Would rather sleep in the park than stay here again!

      Great Value

      from

      This hotel is the best value in chicago, with a convenant location,great customer service, and nice sized clean and comfortable rooms.

      Great value in Chicago.

      from

      Stayed here many times while relocating to Chicago. Very close to Wrigley and in the best part of Chicago. Diversey divides Lakeview and Lincoln Park, so you're literally on the border. Kinda funny cause you're actually staying in Lakeview. Not that that matters. Everything you could want in the area. The property itself is very clean and the staff is usually pleasent (Remember you're in Chicago.) Rooms are large, but don't expect a view. Great alternative to staying downtown. It's about a five mintute, ten dollar cab ride to downtown anyway. I am almost positive the reviewer from Jersey was not at the Days Inn. The property he described sounds exactly like the Lincoln Park Inn across the street. I've stayed there also. It's really bad. Oh yeah, free pass to Bally's when you stay at the Days Inn. Large movie theater right around the corner in the Landmark mall. Stay here. You'll love it.

      Excellent for the price

      from

      When I booked this hotel I was worried because I got such a great rate that I thought something had to be wrong with the room but I must say the room was terrific. Spotless especially the bathrooms. Just watch the step down. Walk in closet. Rooms are also a good size. Great neighborhood.

      A very bad experience

      from

      This had to be the worst hotel stay I have had in years. I was on a business trip, scheduled to stay elsewhere but was "bounced" to the Days Inn because of oversold rooms with a huge convention in town. The hotel is in poor condition. Dirty elevators, worn rugs in the hallway, but the room was the biggest shock. It was the smallest hotel room I've stayed in in ages--you had to shut the bathroom door to use the toilet because the bathroom was the size of a broom closet!!! The curtains were worn, old and filthy. In the daylight, the room looked even worse--it had not been vacuumed or dusted in quite a while. The location is very noisy and the old radiator system clangs all through the night when the heating shifts. If you just want to save money, you might be able to put up with this, but the upkeep in this hotel is terrible. Its a pity, because the location is an artistic, fun and safe district to explore. Too bad the Days Inn can't keep up with its neighbors in standards and cleanliness.

      Charming little hotel

      from

      What a charming little hotel! A former Comfort Innoffered warm friendly service - the hotel is a little worn, but quite a value through Orbitz. This is certainly a more neighborhood feel for a hotel than I ever experienced before!

      Loved the Days Inn!

      from

      I loved it here! I'm from Chicago,but I spent 2 days at this hotel.It was awesome..very clean and cable TV(with just about every station.)The staff was super-nice as well.Continental breakfast is served in the morning and they give you access to the gym that is right next door.The price was great too.When I stayed,it was just $70 for 2 people.Anyone will love it there!

      Days Inn in Lincoln Park - felt like we were part of the neighborhood!

      from

      We LOVE Chicago, hope to move there soon, so we take about two to three trips to Chi-town a year. We are budget travelers, not too demanding (when it comes to hotel stars), we do not need a four star hotel with fancy decoration, considering as we only sleep/shower in the room. We are in town to see Chicago, not to see the four walls of the hotel room.Our second trip to Chicago brought us to the Days Inn in Lincoln Park. We used public transportation, and the red line is about three blocks from the hotel. The staff was SPECTACULAR! The hotel was in a peaceful but trendy neighborhood, with an independent movie theatre behind the hotel inside of a (mini) mall, Barnes and Nobel bookstore across the street, Dunkin Donuts and Walgreens within walking distance. The best part was that we actually felt like we lived in Lincoln Park. Amazing location. The room was clean, tidy, comfortable (small by some peoples standards, but we did not mind) and amazingly quiet. I think it is the quietest hotel I have ever stayed at, I did not hear a thing, and most hotels now days, you can hear your neighbor loud and clear. We stayed at the Essex Inn on our next trip, and even though it was right across Grant Park (fantastic location, decent price, and acceptable room), it did not feel like the Days Inn in Lincoln Park.We highly recommend giving this hotel a chance. You save some money, and get to feel like a local in that neighborhood. We actually saw the same people everyday getting coffee, and walking his/her dog... so if you see Winston (the dog waiting for his owner outside of Walgreens) don't be surprised if he jumps up on you, he does that to the locals! :)

      Very freindly, clean and convenient.

      from

      The hotel and our room were always clean. The desk staff was frendly and helpful to first-time visitors. Got a great room rate, but not off the web, jsut when we called the hotel direct to book the reservation.

      Not having any particular plans for today other than to arrive in Chicago, I slept in and rolled out of Kalamazoo in the late morning. Only about 3 hours from Kalamazoo, Chicago stands tall overlooking the massive Lake Michigan (and I thought Lake Erie was big!). Seriously, it's massive. When I got to the Days Inn, I asked the front desk attendants …

Clearly the museum was targeted for people half my age.

BUT it seemed we missed it, even though we were 10 mins early and called them to verify it hadn't come.

      QUICK Tip: When using the trolley, definitely make sure the last or other trolleys ...

And that's the way it looked right up to the ninth inning with the Nationals leading 4-1 and Strasburg about to finish a complete game (he looked un-hittable up to this point), when all of a sudden out of nowhere he gives up two walks and a home ...

      The Plan - get up early and fly to Chicago, eat deep pan pizza and find the giant bean What really happened - Our flight has moved to an even earlier time than planned and so we have to get up at 4.30 am to ensure we are on time. We are bleary eyed, a little short tempered and sad to leave the rolling plains of Wyoming. But move on we must, because we are now nearly two thirds through our journey across America and we still have a long way to go before we get to the East Coast. Our ...
