First things first- don't judge a book by its cover. It looks average on the outside but it sure as heck isn't anywhere else. The rooms are modernly furnished and the staff is AMAZING. I have been to many Chicago hotels - ones where I've paid double what I paid at the Carlton Inn Midway- and the service wasn't half... More

Stayed there on 19May 2015. Exceeded expectations for the price. John, the staff member that checked us in, was very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the ambiant temperature was perfect, and the wifi signal strong. A quick 5 min walk to the train station (they will give you a ride if you dont... More

We stayed at this hotel during an exceptionally booked-up weekend, when every hotel in town was booked, so I can only surmise that we drew the unlucky straw and got the one room with 30-year old (cheese smell) carpet and food in the wall heat-AC unit grate. The high marks for the breakfast are spot on.... Keep up the good... More

Your basic needs are met here. The bed was old and uncomfortable, but serves its purpose. I would not want to stay here for an extended period of time. If you feel safe using city transportation this would be a great place to stay and use city transport. The orange line is relatively close and will take you downtown. The... More

The employees from the Carlton Inn Midway went above and beyond to help with an unusual situation. They allowed me to help someone stay at their motel and even made sure they had milk for this person's baby and also shuttled her to the bus station. They took the time to help when help was desperately needed. I am very... More

We chose this hotel because of it's TripAdvisor score and because we enjoy supporting local companies. We came in on an early flight and headed over to the hotel in hopes of at least storing our bags while we roamed the city. The front desk found us a room to check into right away and that was awesome. The room... More

A friend and I were flying out of Midway and stayed here the Monday night before our flight. We left our car in their lot and took their shuttle to the airport in the morning and called the shuttle when we returned the following Sunday. Both were quick and timely. The room was comfortable and the staff were friendly and... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 20 month old daughter. When we flew into midway we called the shuttle service and they were there within 10 min. The room was very spacious and they even came to set up a crib that we had requested. The next day we were going into the city and once again the... More

My husband, one year old and I stayed at this hotel because of it's proximity to the orange line train that we could ride downtown and because the price is so much more reasonable than hotels downtown. We had been expecting a very basic, but clean room and we got that and more. The staff were great! They were helpful... More
