The only redeeming feature of Heart O' Chicago is that you can save a bundle compared with other motel/hotel properties. Otherwise, it's right of out of those period movies of the 1950's--it is as if the time stood still. The bathroom fixtures were faded and worn and the bars of soap very thin--there was no shampoo. However, there was plenty of hot water. The bedroom furniture is worn down and the mattress was so thin I could hardly sleep--because I was dead tired I fell asleep anyway. There was only one plug to recharge my phone and it inconveniently located. I threw away a similar television set in my room about 15 years ago. Still, if are traveling alone and just want a place to sleep and want to save a lot of money this should be your choice. There is a free breakfast buffet, but I didn't try it. There is a sign in room warning guests not to steal any of the furnishings as if they were of value to anyone! It is about a 20 minute walk from the Thorndale stop on the Red Line.

Room Tip: Ask for second floor room as I heard conversations in the parking lot until the wee hours of the morning.

I was really expecting a less then average motel esp in the heart of the city at such a cheap price. I was pleasantly surprised to find a very neat and clean place. He staff was very friendly and the rooms where clean. I visit family in Chicago often, so this might be my new place to stay. Also doesn’t hurt there’s a White Castle right next door

This is a very clean, cute, old timey hotel adjacent to the amazing little neighborhood of Andersonville. The few reviewers here who complain about the noise (you are in a city), the lack of amenities (what do you expect for under $100 bucks?), the gun play (??) and 'the lower middle class bar' (???) across the street are all ridiculous. The neighborhood surrounding this place is lovely (don't get scared off by the carwash and the White Castle) and you can walk a very reasonable distance past some beautiful homes to the awesome Fireside restaurant and lounge. Or you can head up the street to the fun shops, bars and dining in Andersonville. You are less than a mile from the El and you can take a short bus ride to Wrigley. Best of all FREE parking as opposed to $35 per night and up for places down by the loop so you can Lyft to anywhere you want to go with the $$ you saved on parking! I am always afraid that the owners of this place will sell and this little gem will be turned into an overpriced hipster hotel. Please don't do that to me, Heart O' Chicago!

Free parking. Fast internet. Quick walk to trendy Andersonville for shops and restaurants. Hop on the #84 to the beach (Hollywood Beach). Take the #22 down to Wrigley Field. Free parking. Yes this is a basic motel but it is a bargain in an increasingly over priced city. Best of all you are away from the tourists so you get the real Chicago feel. Room was surprisingly quiet. Bathroom was nice. Even the breakfast was good. Not the ritz but at these rates you can splurge on a trendy restaurant in nearby Andersonville, Edgewater, or Bryn Mawr neighborhoods. My old favorite in Lakeview wanted $264 vs. $97 here.

We were in town for a family event, and Heart O'Chicago was in a perfect location. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable and the air conditioning (while an old unit) worked perfectly. It was convenient to use Uber from the location, and Fireside Restaurant & Lounge was an easy and safe walk for dinner. I wasn't sure when I made my reservation, but now that I've stayed there I can wholeheartedly recommend it!
