Spent one night here. Room was sparse, but very clean (looks just like the room in the Motel 6 TV commercial). There was a lingering smoke smell even though smoking is prohibited. There was very little highway noise in our ground-level room, probably because of the highway sound wall that was 20 feet away. No breakfast offered. You have to...

Clean rooms. Great staff. Wifi is not free. Pool was clean and own outside. It is way too cold March to swim but could've if we wanted. Two full bed room was very small, but clean. Close to chicago naval national monument and not terribly expensive.

Very friendly and nice staff. Room is clean and quite basic, but ok for staying one night. Unfortunately someone had smoked before in our non smoking room. No breakfast is included. Plenty of space to park the car. There is an excellent restaurant not far away, Kevin's Noodle Place, really good and very affordable.

The people with whom I interacted were very nice and accommodating. Wi Fi is extra but the cost of the bandwidth is far less expensive than any provider that I know. The only downside is that the insulation is pretty bad and you could hear people upstairs and in the next room.

Yes, it is noisy if you get the pool side or the freeway side. The Main street side is not so bad. No Ref., microwave, shampoo, must pay for wifi. Stayed here for four nights over a two week period. Would stay again when in area.

The room was basic, no frills Motel 6. No little shampoo bottles, one bar of basic soap, no hair dryer, tiny towels. The floor was laminate (a huge plus in my view!) so I didn't feel really creepy walking around barefoot. but the noise---OMG, the noise. My room was on the freeway side and I heard every police car and...

The staff here were very friendly and eager to help. The parking is a little tight, but the stay was very comfortable. Wanted to stay another night, but had to leave. The price was unbeatable. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Check in was supposed to be at 3PM. We arrived about 5:30 waited for almost 1/2 hour for the room to be cleaned, but couldn't check in and had to leave for an appointment in San Francisco. Arrived back close to Midnight. Parking lot was full and almost had to park on the street, but found one spot thankfully. This...
