Hubby and I made a visit to Chicago and decided to stay in our old neighborhood. The Old Chicago Inn reminded us of our former apartment that we used to live in. The room we stayed in was small, but very charming. Separate, but private bathroom. Bathroom and bedroom were very clean. The walk up three flights of stairs with...

This hotel is super deceiving. I found it on Hotel Tonight and the photos made the rooms look completely different. The rooms and hallways were so old and dirty. The mirror was rusted. The bed touched the hallway wall so that I couldn't get my bag or even my body through into the room. The elevator took FOREVER and there...

My partner and I were in Chicago for the Market Days festival in Boystown over a weekend in August 2016 and had the pleasure of staying at this bed and breakfast for a couple nights. Altogether our experience was pretty good. We were able to easily check in early on the Saturday afternoon that we were arriving. Fairly easy check-in...

Need extra "oomph" to get through your shopping? Old Chicago is the place to go. Convenient to MarketPlace Center Mall in Champaign, IL. They have 110 brews and lots of pasta and pizza. Sandwiches are served with sides. The fries are fresh and hot ; side salads are nice luncheon size. You can order both individual pizza or family size....

Went to Chicago to see baseball at Wrigley Field. We were just a few blocks away from Wrigley with a bunch of fabulous restaurants, bars & clubs inbetween. Cab ride in & cab ride out. No rental car required. Never got bored. Old Chicago Inn served excellent beverages in the bar downstairs. When we go back we will try to...

We had a very nice stay. Could this hotel you some updates? Absolutely!! It was definitely a good value. We had a pleasant stay. David the innkeeper is very friendly and accommodating. Avoid the 3rd floor during the summer it is very hot. There is a sitting area and a mini fridge with microwave on the third floor. I am...

Hard to give this place more than a 3. Yes, it's quaint. And yes it's clean, and David is sincere. But, I would avoid the third floor. The A/C is non-existent. We got a tiny room, with a comfortable queen bed that took up most of the room. The shower was average, the bathroom, very small, the stool in a...

We stayed 2 nights at The Old Chicago Inn, while in Chicago for a Cubs game. The hotel is just one block from the Belmont El station, and about a 10 minute walk to Wrigley Field. We stayed in room 1C, which is on the first floor. We appreciated the 'uniqueness' of the hotel...antique furniture and decorations that alude to...

Very quaint place, reminiscent of staying at your great-aunt's house. Old/antique furniture in every room. Speakeasy in basement was interesting to see. David was an excellent host; making sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in room 2A. King size bed was very comfortable. White robes in the room were a nice touch. We stayed on a Sunday night...
