Full bar and showroom. Very classy FI productions. Regarded as the best FI shows in the area.

They only accept reservations for groups of 5 or more, so go early. Trying to bribe your way past the line does not work. :) Parking (paid) available in the lot toward the north of the building.

Some restroom issues have been reported, not observed personally.

Does not really get going until later in the evening. I've been told they check ID's, but did not get carded when I went. Of course I could not pass for under 21 if my life depended on it.

Ubiquity at its finest! :)

But seriously, it's good food and good service in a "Love All, Serve All" atmosphere as their motto (or is it their slogan?) exclaims. Menu is mostly casual American fare at somewhat upscale prices, however. Full bar, good drinks at somewhat reasonable prices.

Oh yes, memorabilia, most of it interesting, abounds. And of course, the gift shop! :)

An older motel located adjacent to Hunter's Night Club in Elk Grove Village.

The motel's rates were reasonable and the rooms and facility were clean, but somewhat worn and run-down. The motel seemed safe.

A shuttle service was available to and from O'Hare, but advance reservations were necessary to the airport. Service to the airport ended at 12 midnight and with that run's return to the motel until 3 a. m. when it resumed.

Breakfast choices included only donuts (some with filling), muffins, coffee, and juices. The motel is also adjacent to a McDonald's Restaurant for additional breakfast fare.

Formerly Best Western, now independent. Right in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district. Surprisingly nice for the price.

Old Chicago Inn

The Old Chicago Inn is a small family-owned European style Bed and Breakfast with an emphasis on hospitality. The rooms are small and the facilities old, but it's comfortable, clean, safe, and in a neighborhood accepting of diversity.

Located in a busy and safe neighborhood within a two minute walk from the Belmont CTA El Station. It is convenient to restaurants, shopping conveniences, and Wrigley Field. This is a very old and worn, but clean property, with very small rooms and first class hospitality.

Please be aware that some rooms share baths, but the doors do lock. Be prepared to encounter travelers of all kinds including families with small children and there is limited privacy.

Not fancy by any means, but clean, quiet, and comfortable. One of the most reasonable in the area, price-wise. It's a restored older hotel. Rooms tend to run small and do show their age, but at these prices you can't complain!
