Our family's experiences: Clean & comfortable rooms with Wi-Fi, cable & breakfast. Very friendly & knowledgeable staff that is ready serve. A quick walk or complimentary shuttle ride to the Pulaski stop (orange line). And a very reasonable price for the Chicago area. Two thumbs up!!!

I was thrilled to find this "hidden gem" when visiting Chicago this past weekend. After reading many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, I booked a room. We stayed two nights and I can say that this will be the only hotel we stay at for future visits to Chicago. This hotel is a great alternative to staying downtown as the room... More

Our flights were fouled due to weather leaving us to find a last minute room near Midway airport. From the first call with Carlton Inn we were treated like old friends, helpful, accommodating staff. FREE shuttle to/from airport and local dining. Great outdoor courtyard for breakfast, fridge, microwave, nice useable space at the table for work or dining. Just 10... More

My wife and I would definitely recommend the Carlton for anyone who wants a nice room, friendly staff, and conveniently located near the Orange El line. Shuttle service from and to Midway airport and the El station, which is also walking distance.

Great customer service! Nice rooms! Close to the trains and a free shuttle ride. Personnel was more than friendly. Free breakfast but get up early. Also for those that care they have smoking rooms that don't smell bad! We will definitely stay again.

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
