My place is approximately 1 mile to USMLE/ 1.5 NBOME National Center for Clinical Skills Testing (NCCST-Chicago); 10 minutes to O'Hare Airport See below for details. Next to the highway, so you can easily drive anywhere. Lots of parking on the street due to residential area (no apartments or transients.) You’ll love how the parks extremely safe.

Mary's description of her house is accurate, and we experienced a clean and safe stay there, as promised, but I feel it's important to note that this house felt more akin to a hostel, and it didn't have nearly the welcome, homey feel to it that I've come to expect from a good air…

Response from Mary:
I apologize if the signs were offensive, which isn't the purpose. "Not AirBnB", "Trash Bin", "Cups", "Do Not Enter" are all signs for the guests convenience. Behind "Do Not Enter" is my tenant's basement apartment. "Not AirBNB" is for my flight attendant's food and wine. You might actually find a few reviews here about how guests appreciated signs. Also, all the bottles over 4 ounces were purchased by me for guest convenience. If there's ever shampoo, body lotion, body wash are 4 ounces or less, they were probably left behind by a guest. I know you said you arrived late at night so you probably wouldn't see people cooking. Some do and some don't. Happy Travels!!

We had a weird schedule and Mary was kind enough to accommodate. Would definitely recommend if you’re in town for CS!

Mary's place was great. My flight was very delayed, and she was accommodating in my arrival time. Her house is clean and well kept. I will certainly consider staying there again the next time I'm in Chicago.

My stay at Mary’s place was alright. She is a great communicator and answered questions timely and instructions were very clear. Like a previous reviewer mentioned, the home smelled a little musty like a cat or as if it had not been aired out in awhile. The room closest to the ba…

Sorry to hear about the noise. We have a House Rule that Quiet Time is 10p.m. - 8a.m. Unfortunately, we can't enforce the rule if we only hear about it in your review. I have contacted guests and so has the House Manager. I've written reviews mentioning House Rules. I'm severely allergic to cats so I've never had a cat in the house, but I'll be happy to look into it.
