Rooms are clean, a little old in appearance but fairly quiet. Excellent location - 3-5 minute walk to orange line train - 15 minute ride to the loop. Staff is outstanding. Great overall value with free parking. The free breakfast is very complete with many menu choices.

We were very happy with our stay at the Carlton Inn Midway. The rooms were VERY clean and set up in a very comfortable manner. The best part of this stay was the friendly and helpful staff. They went out of their way to make certain our stay was wonderful. We plan to stay again when visiting Chicago.

Dear Carlacc 30 I very sincerely apologize that the carpet in your room was dirty. By way of explanation, not excuse, we had our parking lot patched and sealcoated in recent days and although we have never had the problem before- some of the residue from these processes tracked into the rooms adjacent to the lot. Upon recognition of the... More

Our family of 5 stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean and up to date. The desk people were incredibly helpful and nice. The motel is 2 blocks from Pulaski train station and a 20 minute ride to downtown sightseeing.

The shower was nasty the parking is rough and the parking lot is noisy. Its a ghetto hotel. The shower works ok but the drain doesn't, and when you do notify the staff ( Valerie) she doesn't care. Another reason to avoid this hotel is because its in a bad area. The people who work there from the desk to... More

If you had let us know during your stay we would have immediately sent a maintenance person to your room to correct the problem.... More

I stay at this hotel this weekend. The check in was wonderful. The girl at the desk was very nice. The room was ok. Compared to other hotels in the immediate area I bet this one would have been a five star. The room was clean....the bedding was a little outdated but it was ok. The breakfast was also ok,... More

Mandisa, Thank you for your comments. It is unfortunate that some guests come in to visit our great city and don’t respect the privacy of other guests. We care a great deal about the comfort of our guests and that is why we have not only a Front Desk Agent on duty overnight but we also have a driver/maintenance person... More

Most of the other hotels share a large carpool can. Carlton front desk worker Vic picked us up at 1 am, offered to stop for fast food if we were hungry, and was cool. Staff was great in am and stored our bags while we were out exploring the next day. Definitely use them again!

The room was very large for a motel type room and very clean with great service. I have never stayed at a hotel with this much consideration for the guests. The breakfast was excellent and served in a sun room. I can't say enough about the people in the office. They helped with train schedules and finding a hotel on... More
