Need recommendations for a Chicago suburb for lodging . . .

Jump to last reply

We (family of four) are planning a trip to Chicago for a few days this summer. We will be driving from Cincinnati and would like to stay outside of the city, but close so it doesn't take us too long to drive in each day.

Basically we are looking for a suburb of Chicago that is going to be a convenient and relatively easy drive. It doesn't have to be super high end, but we don't want to stay in a run down area either. Any suggestions? I've done a bit of research on hotels, but there are so many options in so many different areas, it is hard to know where to look!

Thanks!
