"Very clean, and the caretaker who lives on site was very helpful.
We needed a place with no stairs, and close to Rogers and Howard Parks for a family event. We paid $10 a day for a parking spot and rented a car from the Enterprise on Western Ave. Our parking area was easy to get to. Ross, the caretaker assured me that if I got lost, I could call him and he would tell me how to get back.
Jarvis Ave area is quiet. Other than the dehumidifier running during the night, our stay was quiet. The kitchen is clean and well supplied with dishes and appliances. Beds are comfortable. Plenty of towels, and the two bathrooms were an added bonus, when we had company over one afternoon. The garden area in back, is small, but nice to be able to sit outside in your own privacy among the trees, grass and flowers and listen to the cicadas.
There was even an onsite bunny rabbit.
Good WiFi and TV reception. I had two bars on my cell phone, so I made use of the toll free landline phone that was available.
Our first night we arrived late. The unit has a book of close grocery stores, restaurants, trains, etc. I called for Chinese delivery from the list of restaurants provided. I don't remember the name, but delivery was prompt, plenty of food and it was good.
I recommend the Cermak Store on Damen and N Ridge Blvd. Get your breads, pastries, sandwich goodies, fresh fruits and head back to the Garden Unit on Jarvis and prepare yourself a meal.
It is a comfortable area to get out and take a walk.
If you are new to Chicago and plan on staying here and driving, orient yourself to Howard St, N. Ridge Blvd, Touhy Ave. and N. Sheridan Rd. I did not have a chance to ride the "L" Red Line train so I have no recommendations.
Sheridan Rd. will get you south to Wrigley Field or north to Northwestern University and clear into Wisconsin.
Yes, I would definitely stay here again!!"
