It is situated on the Lake front, just out of town, but serviced by a shuttle several times/day from hotel to downtown, to sports venues.

They also allowed us to check out at 11:00 with no extra charge. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind after a day at the parks, this is the place. You won't be disappointed.

To top it all off there was jewelry left in the hotel room on the ...

The property shows it's age but is well maintained clean and cozy !!! It is family friendly and the staff is very obliging to your needs !!! It was close to transportation to the places we came to visit !!!They provide a free shuttle to help you get around to major spots.. The restaurant is right next door and serves the largest breakfast buffet to satisfy any persons hunger at a very reasonable price It serves all meals through the day !!!

I found this hotel to be very nice quiet place very clean and a real gem and easy to get on and off Lake Shore Drive. Right across the street is Lake Michigan , parks, museum and much to see and do . It is a bargain for its price location parking available and even had on site Restaurant also close by places to eat. I had wonderful Chicago Deep Dish Pizza at Giodorano's I would highly recommend staying here safe nice staff and clean Check it out
