    Location, Location,Location!!! Check-in/concierge person was very pleasant. Breakfast at the restaurant was more than adequate. Pleasant server. Awful croissant but otherwise good breakfast.

    My room and bathroom were a little shabby.

    Excellent parking arrangements...free at nearby garage. Wi-fi free. Located near the Green Line for easy transportation into the city. Close to good restaurants, shopping and Frank Lloyd Wright studio, homes and Unity Temple. Excellent restaurant attached to the hotel where we ate breakfast, which is well-prepared.

    We have stayed here many times, but this is the first time I had a bed so lacking in support that I removed all the bedclothes from the bed and tried to sleep on the floor...not a perfect solution, but I slept better there than I had in the bed. We requested a rollaway for the remaining nights of our stay, and I removed the mattress from that and placed it on the floor...then I was able to get two good nights' sleep. If the mattresses on our beds are indicative of new purchases throughout the hotel, we won't be staying there again.

    Amazing receptionis- grandpa who was extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. The room was more than we expected. Now we know where to stay the next time we come to Chicago. It will be our favorite hotel for foreseeable future. Nepalese and mexican couple!

    Friendly staff and historical significance of hotel.

    Temperature control not fully functional.

    The Write Inn is quietly tucked away--well, relatively so, since it's on one of Oak Park's main streets--next to Scoville Park and the Oak Park Ave./Lake Street shopping district, and within easy walking distance from the 'El' train into Chicago. Room was low-key and simply furnished but comfortable. Was very pleased with the price we paid for three nights. Didn't try their restaurant but the (small) place was full up for dinner two of our three nights and is supposed to be very good.

    Great location...central to most everything in Oak Park and it is within walking distance. Close to El if you wanted to get downtown.

    Parking garage was a couple blocks away, but it was free so that wasn't too much of an inconvenience.

  • Older travelers

    The location was perfect for visiting the Frank Lloyd Wright Studio and home in Oak Park. Very close to shopping, across from the Ernest Hemingway Museum and a number of excellent places to eat with in walking distance. Also the green line is only a couple blocks away if you felt the need to go into Downtown Chicago.

    Our particular room was very small but other rooms in the facility were larger...we had opted for the smaller room because of the smaller price. I think next time I would opt for a larger room.

    Great character, excellent location to historic sites! Perfect place to stay to head up to Wrigley Field for a ballgame, too.

    I liked the historic aspects of the hotel.

    The rooms are quite small, but adequate.

    Great location! The town was adorable, and the hotel was only a few blocks from the train. We felt safe the entire time there. Both employees at the front desk we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. The room itself was nice, clean, kind of small, but perfect for us. The hotel validates parking which is also nice! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return again. Oh and the bed didn't squeak which was also a plus... :)
