Although a little out of town it was a really lovely area and the shuttle bus took you into town. The driver had a good Knowledge of the area. The staff were friendly and extremley helpful. The only downside was it was a little dated but very clean. We woukd stay there again

Some would think that a Ramada branding equals a basic standard of cleanliness and service that would go along with the ramada name. Not so my friends... If you're imagining a nice hotel with a lakeside view, with clean carpets and neutral odor, look elsewhere... Anywhere at all. I stayed here for 6 unfortunate nights as this was the only hotel close to the trade show I was attending that was under $200/ night. Having paid $180 per night, I just feel like one of the ladies of the night that must frequent this establishment...I walk way with unfortunate memories of a carpet with more stains than grandma's tablecloth on thanksgiving, after my parents spilled eggnog ALL over it. Thanks Ramada Lakshore for ruining eggnog for me.

It was a business trip.We were happy with our room and bathroom (both nice and clean). The associates were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner twice at the café. We will go back.

You cannot expect being in the magnificent mile but for the prize it's all great. The service is always wanting to help.

Old, poorly maintained, had problems with wireless. The personnel was good. The only positives were the convenient location and free parking. 10 min walk to 47th St Metra station. It took only 15 min by train to get to Millenium park.

Pros: Good location. Only three blocks from the metra to downtown. Relatively cheap stay. Free parking. Our room was old but clean. Same could be said for the pool. Cons: Hotel is literally crumbling outside (stucco falling off of brick). Wifi has a range of about 40 feet outside the lobby. If your room does not fall in that range you're s.o.l. If you are lucky enough to get wifi in your room(I wasn't and i was in the closest building to the lobby) you will undoubtedly be frustrated by the deathly slow internet speed of 18 kb/s. None of the drains in our room worked. You couldn't brush your teeth without filling up the sink. The television was about 20 years old, very dark picture you could barely see with the lights off, and the sound only went up to 16 on a scale of 50. I assume that was so you weren't blaring the tv and disrupting other guests, but you couldn't hear it anytime the a/c came on. Also, about half of the channels, including HBO, don't work. The ice machine(s) was always out of ice. The "Business Center" consists of one desktop computer running the original version of windows xp. It took me 4 minutes to load google.com. The "fitness center" consists of two treadmills and a total gym type of machine in an 8x10 room in the middle of the lobby with great big windows. Too creepy for me. Summary: The Ramada Lake Shore would be a good place to stay as long as you were only sleeping here and not spending any actual time at the hotel. Not a place you want to hang around. The staff was polite but not very helpful.

The hotel itself was fine but the location was rather awkward and not as close as the reviews made it sound. No one at the hotel could speak very accurately about transportation options. The room was clean but everything seemed very old and worn out. The only thing controllable about the AC was the fan speed. Finally, even though we faced the lake, our view was of a bright white concrete wall where there once might have been a courtyard or a pool. If the price was cheaper than the $200 a night we paid for, the stay would have been tolerable, but the price was utterly ridiculous for the room.

Hotel’s furniture is very old. Front desk employers unkindly.
