Ramada Inn Lake Shore - Chicago
Travel Blogs from Chicago
Chicago var allerede tiltenkt litt ekstra oppmerksomhet før vi begynte vår reise. Her skulle Susannah besøke noen av de prosjektene som var grunnen til stipendet hennes, og vi skulle utforske en storby ingen av oss hadde vært i før. Når vi først kom dit så fikk vi så mange must-do ting av venner med intim kjennskap til byen at det ble en ekstra dag …
Chi-Town, the Second City, the Windy City… whichever or maybe none of them? For me, Chicago=Green Street City!!!In planning for this project, Chicago surfaced as the city with greatest potential and possibility for a take home service learning idea . The green alley project appealed to me--it seemed to fit with the needs of Bushwick and …

Alas for ease and time this place is up the top of the list as the kids know it and are comfortable with the food. But you do not up size as there is no small and the regular- well there is way too much fries and drink.

So up for breakfast at 8am this morning and soon realise that it is extremely hard to get a cup of normal tea unless its iced :( However too a walk down Adams street and discovered the famous beginning of Route 66 sign which was very cool indeed!! We then dander end downtown and picked up our silver ford escape which will be our home for the next three weeks. Leather seats, humongous boot and overall just a great ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Inn Lake Shore - Chicago
Stayed here the night before the Chicago Marathon
It wasn't perfect... the swimming pool was drained and it was about a mile to the nearest restaurant, but the day of the marathon they provided free transportation and food.
The room was fine as well.
Could be worse, (always could be worse though)
ok, we knew going into an $82 per night room would be kinda not good, but we went to Chicago the same day we decided on this trip, last minute, most hotels were booked and it really does cost a lot if you drive yourself around downtown b/c no where has a parking lot. This hotel had free parking, the only plus. Our room was kinda smelly and old, the hotels ad said a view of the lake, not from our room, we viewed other buildings. the remote control to the tv did not work, the staff could have been more friendly and when we took showers the tub would fill up and be full til the next day.
What a disappointment! We arrived just after dark, after driving all day, only to be told that they had overbooked and would be sending us to another hotel for one night. "Not far, just 20 minutes away." Okay, maybe for a native of the area during daylight, but it took us an hour and a half of struggling in the dark to make it to the cheapest place they could find in the inner city. When we got back to the Ramada, the pool was drained, the TV didn't work, our bathroom door wouldn't even shut. The place is a dump, and the front desk clerk was extremely rude. I give the manager credit for at least being apologetic, but nothing was offered to us to make up for the inconvenience. This place needs to be demolished and something suitable put up in its place.
I was shocked at how poor this hotel was. Our 1st room had an A/C unit that sounded like an airplane. We were moved to a suite that had 2 non-
This hotel is a TOTAL and complete misrepresentation of the Ramada hotel chain!!!!!!!!! I was soooooooooooo disgusted with the room, that I could have puked! The doors were covered in mildew, and there was a "cheap hotel" smell in the room. The linen was terrible and I was so uncorfortable sleeping in the bed the entire stay. I do not know why they are still in business! I would not recommed this hotel to my worst enemy. This is a poor excuse for a hotel. They should call it the GHETTO!!!!!
Very, very bad
Where should we start? My running group reserved 4 rooms here over the marathon weekend. One room had a kicked-open door, one had a tub that would not drain, another with a tub floor that creaked as if you would fall through at any moment. Very rude staff. A sign in the rooms says 'A safe is available. We are not responsible for valuables not left in safe', but upon calling the front desk, we were curtly told there was no safe. A totally disgraceful business. Never a Ramada for us again.
Awful hotel tho close to U of C
i have stayed here several times over the last 3-4 years because of location, but about 80% of the time the room is terrible. This last stay, with mold and dirt, may well be the last. the people are nice and there are or were some good rooms - i just dont know how to get one!
Dont go here
We arrived early september and stayed for 3 days. The service was poor and we were given the wrong type of room from what we ordered. They never told us about this until we went and questioned it, they replied with 'they dont have any at the non smoking King rooms at the moment' so we had to settle for a smoking Room for the handicap with special showers and toilet seats. The service was non existant and the whole hotel smelt discusting. We had no trouble with shooting loo's like the last review but were not happy with our experience. On a good note the free shuttle to the city was good but you need it because this hotel is not even close to downtown even though their website indicates this.
Choose somewhere else
Couldn't find my reservation, terrible smell in the hall, toilet that shot water across the floor with every flush, room not very clean.
Charged for two rooms. Very unresponsive staff. I will never stay at a Ramada again. The double charging has yet to be resolved. Boo on Lakeshore Ramada.
This is the hotel to be at if you are trying to conserve costs, yet be in a great hotel right in Chicago. We paid $87 per night for a large double bed room in June 2003. We arrived after driving all night at 7am and the hotel let us check in early which was wonderful. They have a free shuttle, a nice outside pool, a beautiful view of lake michigan, a reasonably priced restaurant, a free shuttle service and above all outstanding service. Every hotel employee excelled and went above and beyond to accomodate us. I highly recommend staying here.
