From the pickup at the airport to the gourmet daily breakfasts (at whatever hour of the morning suits your schedule), to the excellent local recommendations, Mell is the consummate host. He was always ready with friendly conversation, recommendations for finding great food and music, and even provided a bottle of wine to unwind in the evening. This lovely B&B is a bit off the beaten path, but was very convenient for my visit to the U of Chicago. The accommodations are unique and spectacular, while still priced to compete. Every room has been lovingly restored from the original 1890s brownstone manor to provide comfortable and luxurious accommodations while retaining the original charm of the place. When traveling for business I'm used to staying in the standard Hyatts, Marriotts, etc. Instead, if you want a place with some character and a personal touch, you can't do better than the Welcome Inn Manor!

My wife had surgery recently at the University of Chicago Hospital which required an eight day stay in the City. Our experience at the Welcome Inn Manor Bed and Breakfast could not have been better. We were greeted at check in with warm hospitality which helped to calm anxiety of the upcoming procedure. Every need that arose throughout this experience was met above and beyond expectations, to include; early morning rides to the hospital, assisting with getting back to the B&B upon discharge, and even traveling to the drug store for medications. It was especially nice to have Mell and Angie waiting for me at the end of each day while my wife was in the hospital to discuss the day’s events and unwind. We will be returning to Chicago for some follow up visits, and will definitely being staying the Welcome Inn Manor!

Aptly named, the Welcome Inn Manor makes you feel welcome immediately. It's like staying with good friends, if those friends are in the mood to pamper you. Lovely home, lovely rooms, outstanding breakfast. A truly unique place to stay in Chicago.

Mel and his staff were incredible. They were very courteous and helpful. Chef Bruce cooked us a gourmet breakfast every morning. We relaxed and chatted with three Chinese guests during breakfast. I will definitely consider returning to the Welcome Inn in the future.

Beautiful inn where you want to look at everything and sink into every sofa; warm, hospitable, helpful, interesting hosts; delicious breakfasts. It's easy to be completely private, but also a lot of fun to talk with Mell and Angie if you're feeling sociable. It would probably be easiest to stay there if you had a car, but Mell kindly gave us rides and also introduced us to Uber, which took us everywhere we wanted to go.

My son will be starting as a freshman at U Chicago. We took a pre-orientation weekend to show the campus to his mom and younger sister, who will apply next year. We found the Welcome Inn Manor B & B on the U Chicago website and then explored on line ratings, which were superb. While the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, then were understated. Mell and Angie have created in the Welcome Inn Manor B & B a unique sanctuary for visitors to Chicago. This is a magnificent restored home, full of Chicago and US history and loaded with culture, style and warmth. The breakfasts were very special (check out Mell's pumpkin pancakes!), and on several other matters, Mell and Angie went way beyond the call of duty (giving directions, travel outings and restaurant recommendations, and airport pick-up). The Welcome Inn Manor will be our home away from home on Chicago's south side!

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we felt like family at the Welcome Inn Manor. Located outside the bustle of downtown Chicago, the atmosphere of this Inn was more like a stay with relatives. Our room was pleasant and quiet,a necessity. Mell and his wife Angie went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, dropping us off in the morning at places we wanted to visit, helping us with restaurants and providing guidance since we were first time visitors to the city. This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in during our travels and it is highly recommended.

Inn Manor is a very nice B&B,refurbished with love by it's owner Angie & Mell Monroe, at the Southside of Chicago in Bronzeville. If you are interested in a well-preserved historical building, hospitality, a good breakfast and if you like to meet nice People from all over the world, that's the place to go.

We can not say enough about this beautiful place. First of all the owner worked with my husband and I in allowing us to rent the room in short notice. We were not aware that we needed to plan at least two months in advance but with a bit of luck we were able to visit on a Friday. This had to be the best overnight stay we have experienced thus far. The house is amazing and you really do feel like a King and Queen. It was clean and the attention to detail was beautiful and could be clearly seen in the beautiful hardwood floors the antique furniture. It was a first time for my husband and I and trust me we will stay much longer next time. I can honestly say I do not think we will every do hotels again. The prices are very reasonable and the stay was peaceful. We just unwound and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. Thank you Welcome Inn Manor 10 Stars!

I was taking my son to visit The University of Chicago. My wife found the Welcome Inn Manor while looking for a hotel for us. She always finds us great places and I am so glad she found this one, only 3 miles from the school. The house was warm and welcoming and beautifully decorated. Mell treated me and my son like new friends, offering anything we needed including advice on great places to eat and things to see. In the mornings, we were treated to fantastic home cooking that you cannot get in a restaurant. My son will be attending UofC so we will be visiting this bed and breakfast often in the next several years. Thanks Ang and Mell!
