Not disappointed at all with this motel right near Midway Airport. Our trip started with the friendly driver who picked us up at the airport using the motel's free shuttle service. The motel is not in the greatest neighborhood but that should not stop you from coming here. I asked for a quiet room and an early check in, I... More

We followed all reviews for this great little motel, close by MDW, and we're not disappointed with our one night stop over. Steven at Reception greeted us with a smile, efficient check-in and loads of information about area restaurants and public transportation. Breakfast coffee and donuts worked well for us because we were catching a flight back to Boston mid-morning.... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel recently and I was impressed with the quality of service that we received. Paul was very helpful and polite, our room was clean and well kept. I would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend to others. Keep up the good work!!

This motel looks recently refurbished inside and out with all the amenities one would need. It is close to the midway airport and the shuttle van takes you to that airport. My sister and I stayed here for 6 nights as we were touring the city and had arrived through O'hare Airport. We chose this motel because of the reviews... More

Stayed here for two nights in late September 2014. Arrived early in the day, well before checking - not a problem. We were given a room right away and were able to unload luggage and get settled before heading downtown. Front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful. Gave us directions to the train and offered the shuttle service to... More

Checked into the hotel and went to our room. We make a habit of checking the bed/mattress for bed bugs. Puled the bed sheets up and looked at the side seams of the mattress where they commonly are and leave residue. Found likely evidence of bed bugs. The room also smelled very musty. Went back to the office and told... More

Our Management Staff and Head Housekeepers have had extensive training in identifying and preventing bedbugs. We also participate in an ongoing, aggressive, eco-friendly exterminating and... More

Where this hotel really shines is service. The staff are wonderful, from requests, directions, security, to breakfast. Yes its older, however it is affordable, clean and cared for. Our room could have used new carpet, but hey im not sleeping on the floor.

Although we were unfortunate to have two cancelled flights from Midway because of the fire at the FAA facility, we were fortunate to find the Carlton Inn Midway. Making the reservation was easy from the “hotels board” near the baggage claim. It was just a short walk to pick up the shuttle that took us straight to the hotel. The... More

The front desk staff is wonderful. They are so friendly and helpful. The hotel is older and more like a motel, outside doors, but clean and bed was comfortable. Free breakfast includes dunkin donuts. Very good at giving you directions wherever you want to go, free shuttle to the "L" train. Refrig and microwave in the room. Bathroom pretty small.
