The best of the best, most friendly and helpful people on our way. Beautiful rooms and clean bathrooms. I can really recommend this hotel. Next time I skip New York, Milwakee and come straight to this home feeling environment.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms were clean and spacious, they come with fridge, microwave, flat screen TV and free WIFI. Parking is FREE!!! This a huge plus since parking in the city is an average of $25 per night... you can leave your car at the hotel and take the Orange Line to Chicago, to... More

We were more than happy with our stay. This hotel truly caters to their customers. Such friendly staff. Very helpful and fun. Even offered to let us leave our vehicle there AFTER we checked out to ride the train. Also dropped us off at train station AND picked us up. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

I decided a couple of weeks ago to travel to Chicago with my boys to see the Bears game, and our Blue Jays play the Sox. We usually stay at chain hotels in the suburbs of cities and drive into downtown but from what I had read about Chicago, it's not an easy place to drive around and parking is... More

We had a 3 night stay here recently. The staff were friendly, service oriented & helpful. We were given some very helpful information about local restaurants & attractions at check in and the few special requests we had were handled promptly and graciously. Buddy, the lobby mascot, was very sweet too! We were delighted by the expanded continental breakfast featuring... More

Bottom line this was a great stay with family (three boys age 18,8,2). The rest of the hospitality industry should come here to learn how to treat customers. Family run and great services. Couldn't be more impressed. Location is 1/2 mile from midway (as name indicates) and on the ORANGE line subway (called the L) which also goes to Midway... More

My 3 teenagers and I really enjoyed our 2 day stay here. The staff were so very helpful and flexible allowing us to stay a while longer while we packed up. We appreciated the free parking, free breakfast, recommendations and directions to our destinations and not having to ask for extra towels or help with our luggage. They seemed to... More

As everyone says "GREAT FRIENDLY AWESOME staff. Steve, Nicole, Dean and Nicole treated my friend and I with courtesy, respect and patience beyond description. My own family falls short compared to these folks. It is very reasonable and super clean.. And the neighborhood is not that bad, honestly. It's south side of Chicago, ok? I have stayed here three times... More

The service at this hotel is the best I have ever received. We stayed at a 4 star hotel in downtown Chicago the night before, and the staff at Carlton blew them out of the water. I wish we would have stayed here both nights. The person that helped us specifically, I believe was named Paul. He seemed genuinely interested... More

This hotel has the most helpful and friendly staff imaginable. The room was clean and well furnished, the bed very comfortable. I suggest that boiled eggs at breakfast would be welcome. The area around the hotel isn't attractive which accounts in part, I think, for the very reasonable price. Very convenient location for Midway Airport, and very close to the... More
