Quick Stop; troubles getting in
The location is mostly as described. The walk to Wrigley is more 25 min than 10 min. We arrived late as we drove all evening from KC. The access code provided was incorrect and we were forced to sleep in our car until VRBO customer service was able to get a hold of the owner.
The unit was as described: small but enough for what we needed. The kitchen sink was dirty and we later realized that the sinks back up when the upstairs unit uses water. There was a full trash bag on the balcony, presumably from the previous guests.
All in all, this would have been a pleasant experience if it for such crazy issues getting into the dang place.
Not what was expected.
To start the code given to us did not open the lockbox to get the keys out. Once in the room there was no ac which is not good as it was 75+ in Chicago the two days we were there. Also needs to advertise as an efficiency apt as that's what it is. The neighbors were offering drugs. The listing said it sleeps 4 but didnt say that 2 of those would be sleeping on air mattresses and not a pull out couch or something along those lines. All in all I will not be staying at this location again. Was not worth the money that I spent for it.
This little home away from home was small but so cozy. We had 4 people in our room so it was a bit smaller for the grouo that we had but it kept us close and it felt like home. We were able to have youtube play some music while we prepared for our days! We will definitely be coming back as a couples weekend getaway!
Cozy and cute apartment!
Elise was wonderful to deal with. The stay was short but it had everything we needed. Clean and cute. Would rent again!
Met our needs, clean, nice area, walking distance to Wrigley Field
It was clean and tidy. Felt comfortable in the area. Walking distance to stores, fast food & Wrigley Field. No WiFi or TV. Worked for quick stay.
Not Quite up to HomeAway Standards
We have used HomeAway before very successfully and have always been very pleased. The Sheriden Park property is just not up to the standard we expected. It may be early in the property owner using HomeAway. I realized after our stay that there were no reviews. The property was described as a loft, but was really a 2nd floor apt in a 3 story bldg. The description said 5 min walk to the lake. Google estimated 25 min. We didn't try it. The air conditioner was not large enough to keep the small room comfortable and it was difficult to sleep. The description said 4 people could sleep, but there was one bed and a small sofa and not even room for someone to sleep in the floor. There were no washcloths or hand towels or soap. There were not enough linens, the bed had only a fitted sheet and another sheet, I guess for the sofa. The bed linens and bath towels were all stained and very worn. The bathtub had mold and mildew. There was a hamper in the closet with what looked like dirty linens overflowing. The parking situation was never explained to me. It is on the street parking except on Tues. If you can't get a spot on that street, it's $2/hour for a meter. We were there on Tues and had to find parking several blocks away for the night. This could be a successful property if there is more attention to the condition of the apt and the description is modified. I will not stay in another place that has no reviews. I had never had a bad experience and didn't even realize there were no reviews before we got there. I hope the problems with the apt can be corrected. It is very close to the el train and very convenient, but not very comfortable the way it is.
