This third floor apartment is great to get to and from Downtown. It is only two blocks from the train station that takes you to the city center in ~30 minutes. The room has a new comfortable queen size bed. Pick-up from Midway Airport can be arrange. If you are flying into O'Hare airport, a pickup can be arranged for $30 (still cheaper than a(n) Uber/taxi).

There may be occasional guests staying in the room across.

The space

You can access your room, the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. There are two entrances from either side of the building.

Your room will have a very comfy bed that was recently bought along with clean sheets, comforter, and a few pillows ranging in softness. There is a nightstand, dresser, and a closet that you can use in case you have many things with you. Please make yourself feel at home!

You're welcome to use the kitchen as there are pots, pans, and dishes for you to use. The bathroom has clean towels, dryer/washer, detergent, and a hair dryer for you to use.

The TV in the living has a Chromecast so you can stream anything you like off of your phone or laptop. Just turn the TV on and you should be ready to connect.

Interaction with guests

This is my mother's, Danuta, home so you will be interacting with her. You will be mostly left alone. If you would need a ride to/from the grocery store that can be arranged , just let Danuta know beforehand so she can drive you.

Other things to note

Feel free to bring your car, there is free parking available!

Although this apartment is near an airport, much of the noise is blocked out by newly installed sound insulating windows.

The location is right by airport but isn't noisy at night. It is also close to bus/metro station. It was a little difficult to find the place in the dark, however, the key was left out for us. There was a little miscommunication, because I have Canadian phone number and it wasn't working for me in the US, but it was also easily sorted out. For those who travel with a car, there's spot for you to park for free and it is relatively safe. Jim's mom, Donna, is very nice, and her baked goods were very good too! Although the room is a little smaller than what I expected, it definitely served us fine, and it was not hot at all during summer evenings! Definitely would recommend this place for travellers on a tight budget!

Great stay; great location. Thank you for having me. Short walk to Midway airport, L train, grocery store, restaurants, etc.

Photos and description of the space were very accurate. Jim's mother was pleasant and kept the fridge stocked with bottled water. I spent the vast majority of my time sightseeing, so was mainly here to sleep. The location was clean and no issues with sound from the airport nearby that I heard. If you don't mind a 1.5 - 2 block walk to the transit hub this is a good location to grab the orange line into downtown Chicago (~30 minutes). I walked with my one carry-on to the transit hub that is connected to the midway airport without any trouble, if you have a lot of luggage you might want to simply coordinate a ride, but for me it was fine. Bedroom and bathroom doors lock, which I appreciated with other guests potentially staying (I'm sure they were fine), but good peace of mind. Bed was comfortable and wifi worked well. There was a bit of a gap in coordinating the final details of my arrival in part because Jim was overseas, I suspect this was a one-off, just be sure to have contact info of his mother and specific unit number before you arrive. I would stay here again if traveling to Chicago.

Perfect place if you need somewhere close by the airport, right across the street from Midway transportation and parking, so about a 10 min walk if you don't have too much luggage. It's about a $11 Uber/Lyft ride with fees included for those with luggage. If you need a place near the airport to stay, perfect location, especially if you are traveling light. Though if you are like me and travel with a lot of luggage, keep in mind it is on the 3rd floor. Jim was very helpful with locations, even provided a map. I arrived and was greeted by Jim's mom who was decorating the Christmas tree, she was very nice and showed me around.

This is a great spot to stay at if you need to fly out of Midway. The area is very well lit, and as advertised, 15 minutes to walk to security from the door. Jim was very quick to respond and was mega helpful. Kudos!

I like to keep these short. I'm currently a student at the University of Illinois. I like to travel and explore, read novels, and meet new people.
