It was great to stay at Tracy's place. She is very warm and kind person, and always pays extra attention to the visitor's needs. I recommend this place!
We stayed at Tracy's for a few days during the Chicago Marathon weekend.
Overall, we really appreciated the welcoming atmosphere and her kindness. She was always available to help us out with any questions or requests we had. That made quite the difference.
The accommodation is descent but the room where we stayed was rather small. The majority of the space was taken by the twin size bunk beds so there wasn't really enough room for our suitcases. I think other rooms were more comfortable so make sure you clarify which room you are getting.
A very good location with plenty of lights! A lot of nice places to visit near by..had a very comfy visit.
Tracey and her friends are very pleasant people. Will be back for sure!
Tracy was a great host and her apartment was very nice. Excellent location, good proximity to the 65 bus and blue line; tons of food and drink options very close by. Thank you for hosting me with almost zero notice -- recommended 100%!
Tracey and Josue were fantastic hosts, going out of their way to ensure I was comfortable, was aware of what was going on in the local community and could get around. Surprises like random tacos, cookies and chocolate brownies added to the experience. If you are going to stay here, bring an alarm clock as it is very dark in the room and easy to lose track of time in the mornings.
Tracy was very accommodating and helpful! Thanks Tracy!
Tracy was a lovely host and if we needed anything she was ready and willing to help. The room is good, the location is very convenient.
Very nice place. The most important thing of Tracy's place is the location. For us was very useful be near of downtown. Chicago station is about 10 minutes walking and that station connect directly with the downtown.
Tracy was a very nice host and we don't have any problems, everyhing was great in our stay un Chicago!
Life saver. All of the downtown Chicago hotels were booked up and was able to get into Tracy's place. Clean, courteous, and made some new friends for sure. Thanks Tracy!
I stayed with Tracy while in town for Lollapalooza so I wasn't there very much. The time I was there, Tracy was very good about making sure I had everything I needed to be comfortable. She even offered to give me a tour of the neighborhood and if I'd had some extra time I would have taken her up on that.
The location was great, there's a bus stop right at the corner and a metro stop about .5 mi away which was an easy walk. You even pass a Starbucks on the way. Even walking around late at night I felt very safe in the neighborhood.
The house was spacious, there were a few other people staying there at the same time and it never felt crowded. There was one bathroom for guests to share but it seemed like everyone staying had a different schedule so it was never an issue. If you're looking for a place to stay in Chicago, I would definitely recommend this one.
