I spent one night here after walking from the Pulaski station, and I first I was concerned about the neighborhood, but when I arrived at this old-fashioned-looking hotel (with outside entrances), the young lady at reception was very professional and helpful.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Carlton Inn Midway. When we first arrived I wasn't thrilled about the layout with the doors opening directly to the outside but my fears were relieved when everything was extremely quiet and we felt very safe. The staff here is excellent. They are extremely helpful with information about local places to visit, directions... More

Room was very large with unexpected microwave and fridge. Plenty of parking with bank parking lot next door that they allowed us to use. Nice new mattress and provided toiletries. AC was a bit weak and the maid was rude and kept knocking on our door insisting that we remove the do not disturb sign. My guess is she got... More

Stayed there for 1 night....courtesy van was very helpful and easy to get around. Staff was very helpful, found us a place to repair a watch & gave us several great tips on where to eat. Hotel is getting upgrades, people are working to paint it and renew the hotel. I will stay there again.

At first look, I have to be honest that we are a little bit disappointed because it looks like a ordinary motel.... More

My friends and I selected Carlton Inn when we flew into Chicago to attend a concert at the United Center. Hotel is near the airport, not near the United Center though The staff is so super friendly and helpful.
