5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Cozy, comfortable, quaint and reasonably priced prohibition-era b&b full of vintage furnishings with a private speakeasy in the basement that is only open on weekends. Conveniently located within blocks of Wrigley Field in a vibrant neighborhood. Easy access to public transportation.

Stayed here for a couple nights prior to the start of a Route 66 road trip. We chose it for it’s old time charm and it produced! Old time feel with creaky floors and original floorplan with bathrooms in the hallway. Very clean, antique furniture, coffee and scones in the morning. David the manager is a hoot! Stay here for a step back in time!

Great Value
This is the place to stay if you're looking for something affordable and centrally located. The Inn is only a few blocks away from Wrigley Field and right around the corner from the train and a ton of restaurants. There aren't many frills but if you just want a clean place to sleep this is it. I'll stay here on any future trips to Chicago.
