I was here to pick up a guest. Lobby was very comfortable. Entrances, though clearly marked, were mixed among restaurant entrances. At least three parking lots within 3/4 blocks of the hotel.
Guest of the hotel stated her room was small but quite lovely.

A little overpriced for what appears as transient guests also staying at the hotel. The elevator is an old fashioned service elevator. The front desk answers the phone at their leisure. Some front desk employees are awesome, some make you wonder what happened to customer service skills.

Overall, you will feel robbed after paying the current rates to stay at this hotel, but with no competition in Oak Park/River Forest, it’s either the Carleton or find an air bnb.

Charming and quaint. Beds comfortable. Centrally located in heart of Oak Park residential area, near shops, parks, and restaurants. Motel not as nice as main hotel but less expensive. Front desk staff very kind and welcoming but NOT THE MANAGER! He was evidently bothered by our asking for complementary water bottles to bring back to our 3 rooms! 🙄

If your a fan of his work or want to know more, this is a great place to start. This was the beginning of the FLW home tour they put on this year. I’m so glad i visited. You’re able to see his style progression in his early work here and the other houses in the neighborhood. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the tour flowed well through the house. I’ll definitely come back.

Pretty good museum shop. Make sure to arrive early enough to be able to still book a tour, or book online. Also note that most of the houses in the neighborhood are privately owned, you cannot see inside them except on special occasions.

We totally enjoyed this tour. The docent was excellent. Knowledgeable taking a generous amount of time for questions. It was nice that the building contained furnishings to clearly define the property. I would recommend this tour if you have an opportunity or desire to learn more or be introduced to Frank Lloyd Wright.

Classic Cinemas brings real movie magic to Oak Park with its timeless theater feel, exemplary staff, and fun atmosphere. I was fortunate enough to see some great movies in Oak Park, and I had a wonderful experience each time. Everything is clean and in compliance with Covid guidelines, and the screens are nice and big with comfortable seating. I look forward to seeing many more films at Classic Cinemas in the very near future!

I love this place. It has the best prices for a film. It has the best concessions too! The staff is always amazing here. The GM is top notch too! Its clean and well kept. It’s an old theather that has kept its feel of being a classic one. The feeling of walking it and environment make it feel like as if you were there when it opened.

Excellent school. Expensive to parents, but still less than taxpayers pay per student for the public schools. If Illinois did vouchers, more poor kids could come here (thanks to generous donors, they provide aid to many).

Went yesterday as an 18 year old to take out my first ever state ID! They didn’t allow my mom in with me so I went in alone and handed them my social security card, birth certificate, and my W2 form which included my current address which they accepted, then they sent me to get my picture taken where I was given a number and told to sit around the corner, after a minute or so I was called up and asked the basic questions plus if I wanted to be an organ donor and if I was registered to vote. I then was handed a detailed form and told to take it to the cashier, went there paid 20 dollars and then told to go to line 2 where I received my temporary ID in a matter of minutes!!!!! I was in and out within 10am and still got my day done, Glenda was so sweet and helpful with the whole process and overall the staff did excellent in getting me out of there! Regarding waiting times, it depends because some days it will be crowded leading to longer waiting times and then there’s these times where it there was no lines.

My experience today:
The facility was prompt at opening the doors right at 7:30 am.
Thank You!!!

I took a senior citizen to get their license renewed.
The policy for license renewal at this facility is by appointment only.

However for seniors it’s walk-ins first come first serve. However to make the process smooth you
must have all paperwork and expired license with you or you are at risk of being turned away.

The facility was well organized especially for seniors.

I have been a member of FFC and going to the Oak Park location since 2013. Yes, the membership is expensive and keeps going up, which I don’t like. However, it is a very clean and up to date gym. I take several of the classes here and all of the instructors are wonderful. Thank have never had an issue with unclean or broken equipment. If there is an issue with that in gym, the staff communicates to us members. The manager and staff are all very friendly and care about the gym. Great place to workout!

I have been working with their Oak Park personal trainer Aria for the past 7 months and she has undoubtedly helped me reshape my 48yr old body. The program has worked for me and I am now in ‘athletic shape” according to my BMI reads.

The gym is open and easy with a lot of options with regards to equipment . The staff is attentive, and overall the place is clean. Best decision I made in 2020.

We just moved into one of the skyline apartments at 100 Forest Place and so far it has been very satisfying experience. The leasing office has been very professional since the initial tour until our move-in. The management has been very prompt, efficient, and professional. The complex is neat and clean. The parking lot is spacious is adjacent to the property. Highly recommended place.

While we enjoyed our time living in Oak Park, the move out process with management has been awful and even felt predatory. They make early termination near impossible, and are inflexible with EVERYTHING.

They wouldn’t allow us to end our parking contract or our lease early despite months of notice. They also insist on charging >$200 for a cleaning fee that is automatically deducted from your security deposit, without taking into account anything from the apartment inspection.

If you’re looking for a considerate and thoughtful property management company, look elsewhere.

Edit: Contacting the corporate office did not help. Very disappointed in the communication at every level.

“Latino” restaurant not for Latinos.
If you like stale chips, uninspired salsa, and bland food this is the place for you! Here “fusion” is code for whitewashed flavors because the menu items are mostly Mexican and none of them are worth the prices. Had takeout from this place a month ago and the food was bland but I gave it the benefit of the doubt because it was takeout. Came back for dinner still disappointed. Would like to point out that most of the bad reviews are from Latinos and people disappointed with the flavor. To top it all off my waiter was clearly not please to be serving us 🤷🏽‍♀️. Could not get his attention. My boyfriend literally had to walk to him to order a second round of drinks. Anyway this place is successful because it’s in Oak park anywhere else it would be a fail. To the owners: it’s clear you want to profit from Latin culture but don’t appreciate our business. Also serving Valentina in a sauce cup, what?!? Just bring out the bottle if you’re going to use it at all 😂

This was the first time my sister and I had been to this restaurant. The restaurant was clean. Our server, Carlos was inviting, knowledgeable, patient and attentive. The food was amazing with all the different flavors going on. The presentation was neat and beautiful. And the dessert was delicious! It’s a bit pricey, but worth it especially if you are treating yourself or it’s a special occasion.

They have enough staff to provide you an attentive service during Covid time. Food came out fast and it tasted good. The patio is spacious enough to keep your social distance.

We were actually for a celebration of life for a dear friend who passed away too soon. The facilities were nice, the staff was amazing. The place is usually closed on Monday’s, they opened up for this special event. The patio is large and the tables are spaced adequately. I will visit again on a happier occasion.

Band was okay but only played until 11 exactly. The inside was untouched, I expected it to be updated as part of renovations. Nothing has been done to interior. That was why I thought they kept everyone outside but do not see improvements. Loved Capri its closed. Have a bbq place instead. Food has a lot of garlic, not of same quality. All very disappointing.

If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, modern architecture of the early 1900s, or architecture for religion then Unity Temple is a must see. For the time, the design was modern and futuristic. Wright’s vision for a new church was completely different for the immediate area but he nailed it. Also, Wright’s home is just down the street which is another must see

We were directed to Dr. Brian Cole for our 16 year old athlete, that had a second injury to his already reconstructed ACL by a different surgeon. In just a short amount of time in the office, I felt very comfortable with the surgical decisions that we had discussed. The staff is so nice and professional, and I would recommend them to anyone. ~ A Hatz RN

I had tried to call and speak to my doctor when my anxiety medicine was on it’s last refill. I was told she would call me back. I was never called back. I had to go through the withdrawal symptoms because I couldn’t speak to my doctor. It was really awful. Then I tried to speak to my doctor again recently. I gave my cell number as my best contact. It was not even used. They called my mothers house and I haven’t lived there for over a year now. When I called back no one could give me any information. The receptionist wouldn’t send my the release forms to my email so I could sign off and receive them. I am moving out of state and I can’t even get an apology from my doctor for not following up. What a terrible experience. Thanks for more anxiety.

I scheduled an appointment via Zocdoc almost 2 weeks in advance. After receiving multiple reminders, I arrived to my appointment only to find the office closed. This was an extreme inconvenience as this was a weekend appointment and this office is 45 minutes from my home. I am disappointed that office staffing did not reach out to me , in a timely fashion, to rescheduled if they offered appointment availability outside of operating hours. With that being said, confirm your appointments with a person if you book online!
