We had a fantastic stay here. We stayed one night drop our daughter off for an early morning flight out of midway. The facility had everything we wanted and needed. Staff was great! Wonderfully helpful and entertaining to speak with. We were able to walk to a local pizza place for a great meal. Nice local neighborhood. Great shuttle service... More

We were in town for a concert and didn't want to drive the 3+ hours home through pitch black country afterwards, so we booked this hotel based off the reviews and moderate price well ahead of time. We didn't have time before the concert to check in, so we checked in after the concert (10:30 pm). There was no available... More

Dear Jessica We apologize and feel badly that we were unable to meet your needs. We would like to address your concerns as follows: • By pre-arrangement with the bank next door we use their lot as an overflow lot should ours be full. The lot is well lit, adjacent to our lot and separated by just car bumpers and... More

The area is quiet, the rooms comfortable and kept very clean. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is close to the Orange Line Train Station which goes directly downtown, and has a free shuttle that will take you there whenever you need to go. The continental breakfast is great. The cost of our stay was very... More

We stayed one night at this hotel, and were extremely impressed, not only with the facility itself, but also the staff. Everyone we came in contact with was super friendly and helpful. The shuttle picked us up at the airport in a very timely manner. The shuttle is also available to take guests to the nearest "L" station, or any... More

This is an average hotel with above average staff & service. Rooms are a bit dated, but large and the table, microwave and fridge in the room are a nice bonus. Work out room is small, but no one other than us seemed to use it. The staff make this the place to stay. Shuttle service was friendly, quick and... More

My car was parked and locked at the Hotel and while on vacation I lost my car key. When I returned to the hotel after three days, I told the staff at the Carlton Inn we had lost our car key and almost immediately after asking a few questions, They offered us a room to unpack all our luggage to...

I had stayed at the Carlton midway after almost two day straight on the greyhound with an infant and 10 year oLd. I looked online for an hour to find a place to rest before moving forward. I called because they were the least expensive with the best reviews and Victor answered. What a horrible miserable guy...I almost called another... More

I had to make an emergency trip for a family medical situation. I arrived at the hotel after midnight, had to return a rental car, and had to get to the airport before 7 am. The desk person, Steve, the night van driver Paul, and the early morning van driver Steve could not have been nicer, more helpful, more courteous... More

I was happy to find out about a great, well-run hotel with reasonable rates close to Midway Airport (and with a free shuttle). Most of the cheap motels near Midway are seedy, but this one is professionally run and has all the comforts of the expensive chains: in-room coffee, fridge and microwave, nice continental breakfast with real orange juice (not...
