"I took my teen daughter and her friend to Chicago this summer and after reading a lot of mixed reviews on this Ramada and the Hyde Park area in general, decided to go ahead and book a room. We found our stay here to be fabulous! Of course, if you're expecting a 5-Star hotel experience, this isn't it. But the room was clean and everything worked just fine. Yes, it's a bit older and there could be some cosmetic improvements, but then the cost goes up! Those of you who complain about minor cosmetic issues that really do not affect your stay need to step back and consider priorities. The staff are friendly and helpful and honestly care about their customers. The location was incredible! Just across Lake Street from Lake Michigan, a 10 minute walk has you at the shore! It's south of downtown so the view of the city-scape is awesome! The hotel provides a shuttle to and from downtown making our trip that much smoother. The Hyde Park area is really fun and perfectly safe. Lots to do and see, a lot of great history! Thanks again for your hospitality and we will be back!"

"So, this hotel was not as bad as I was expecting after reading the reviews, but it is in no means a luxury hotel. The rooms were clean enough and I didn't really have a problem with them, but the outside could definitely use some TLC. Also, because it is located right on Lake Michigan (and who builds a hotel there and doesn't have any rooms with lake views?) the outside is covered in spiders at night. Icky. The room keys were probably the trickiest experience. We had to change keys around 4 or 5 times because they either wouldn't work on the outside door, the inside door, or both. So that was rather inconvenient. The ice machine was out of ice once (but I had seen someone with a cooler up there) and there really isn't something they can do about that. Oh, and the last night our tv was incredibly fuzzy and no one ever came to check it even after 3 calls about it. I found it a little strange that the shuttle wouldn't take you to union station, but I did read later that it was an area shuttle. I'm not sure where anyone would want to go in the area. The bus stop was located close enough so it wasn't too difficult to make it downtown. I would definitely recommend finding a cta machine and getting a pass though instead of paying every time."

"Me and my fiance stayed in the hotel on our wedding weekend. I agree with other guests that the outside appearance isn't 100% but I say you get what you pay for. It was the best deal in the area. The restaurant was great, good food, great help. The only thing I was unhappy about was the condition of the mattress in our room. The metal coil springs were just dying to burst through. It was a bit uncomfortable and hard to sleep on. My husband says that the springs hurt his knees (if you know what I mean) other than that the WiFi was hard to connect to and not that many channels on TV but we weren't there for any of that. Overall we had a very nice time."

"I have stayed at this Ramada Inn on several occasions over the past few years. I continue to come back because it is within a decent proximity of downtown Chicago and is relatively inexpensive. But this particular hotel is nothing special. It's run down and generally unclean. The hallways smell like sewage. On my recent visit, our particular hallway was littered with garbage and pizza crusts. The elevator doesn't appear to have been inspected since 2002 based on the certificate posted on the elevator wall. Upon attempted check-in, the staff had no record of my reservation booked through 'BookIt.com' and I did not have a printed copy of the receipt received via email. Fortunately, I still had a copy of the receipt in my email inbox which is the only reason I was able to get the room I had already paid for online. We seem to have been 'upgraded' to a suite as the hotel was sold out, but found the bathroom sink in our 'suite' was marked with several cigarette burns. In addition, the AC unit was like an old dinosaur that clanked and sputtered with knobs that would barely turn (although it did keep the room cool). The WiFi in the room was useless. The staff was friendly and the hotel restaurant/bar is actually pretty decent with an impressive breakfast buffet and quite strong drinks if you happen into the bar in the evening. For nearly half the price as other area hotels with only a few hours spent in the room during our 2 day stay, I will return to this Ramada Inn in the future with the understanding I will be underwhelmed, but heavier in the wallet.
