We stayed at the Carlton Inn because of its proximity to Midway. It was better than we expected - large, clean room. The only drawback was that the room had a thin blanket and it was an extremely cold night. We were unable to adjust the heat to a comfortable temperature. It was probably our fault for not asking at... More

Stayed there because it was close to the airport. Clean rooms. Not a fancy upscale hotel, but clean and fresh. Left for the airport at 6:30 AM. 22 minutes from lobby to gate, including security. Would have been back after the trip almost as quick but traffic was a nightmare at the airport. Very friendly staff. Would stay there again.

Every year me and my wife and son (4 yrs old currently) venture into Chicago for car events. February is always the Chicago Auto Show, then we come up a few other times for various car shows. Always stay somewhere different usually at the last minute because I found a deal somewhere. Well this is truly a unexpected gem in... More

We arrived at Midway and found our connecting flight was cancelled due to weather in the East. We called several hotels from the airport kiosk and the least expensive was $199 - except for the Carlton Inn Midway which advertised $109. Perfect! We called and they picked us up almost immediately. We asked for a room on the 1st floor... More

I was initally unsure of staying due to being a single women and needing to get up very early for my flight, as well as car being parked outside for several days. However, security is excellent, they have both cameras and a guard that makes rounds and, in fact, he watched for me and met me as I walked from... More

We chose this hotel for the Park Sleep Fly option through the Midway Airport based on its reviews. We loved the fact it offered the option to park our vehicle at the hotel and catch a free airport shuttle upon request. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by Nicole who was very welcoming and informative. She provided information... More

Upon inspection of my room, which I always do, I found drug paraphernalia on the floor by one of the beds. The room also did not have a security latch on the door. I reported my concerns to the front desk, and my room was switched. The second room was drug free, yet it also did not have a security... More

Josh, Just as we profusely apologized when we moved you to another room, we profusely apologize again for our housekeeping failure. We met with the Housekeeper and Head Housekeeper responsible to correct this issue and ensure we maintain our standards for cleanliness. That being said it is unfortunate that an individual who elects to take advantage of the limited smoking... More

We visited Chicago to attend a family wedding and stayed an extra day. Not wanting to deal with rush hour traffic on a Monday morning, we booked the Carlton Inn Midway for Sunday night. We returned our rental car to the airport and took the hotel shuttle back to the hotel. People waiting for the Marriott shuttle before we got... More

Made very welcome by the staff. Got a great dinner recommendation from them. Easy to get to from the El stop. They will come get you from there if need be - just call. Very clean room with a fridge and microwave. Not fancy, but who needs fancy just staying overnight to catch a plane? Quick shuttle to Midway.
