My brothers, my father, and myself stayed here one night while we were passing through Chicago on our way to Minnesota. The front desk was extremely courteous, helpful, and friendly. They picked up my cousin from the airport, checked him in early, and had our second room set up when we arrived. My dad surprised us with a baseball game... More

What can i say other than the stay at the Carlton Inn Midway was amazing. Compared to downtown Chicago hotels, the cost was reasonable and you could not have asked for a better value for your money. The room was decent size with all amenities, it was clean and modern. While you are not downtown Chicago, you are just a... More

This hotel saved our vacation! We were 5 hours late getting to the hotel sometime close to 1 am. We were hungry and tired. They came out to the cab and took all our luggage to our room without any questions! We signed in and they asked how they could help us? Gave us each a bottle of nice cold... More

Normally we're hotel people, so the idea of a motel made is a little nervous. The Carlton staff and environment made that go away quickly on arrival! Stay were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. I would highly recommend for park, sleep, and fly or a stay in the area. Only wish our flight was later... More

The motel ro is nice, well thought out. Breakfast has healthy choices and nice setting-free. Parking was free but tight,but staff helped secure a spot and let us keep our car there for a few hours after checkout . Neighborhood not great but train is a few blocks away and you can call for hotel van to pick you up... More

Spacious, clean, comfortable room. Super helpful staff; helped us figure out how to grab the train to get into the city for a play before leaving really early the next day. We didn't get to take advantage of the breakfast, but our 4:00am shuttle driver was right on time. It also took them only about 10 minutes to pick us... More

Hotel staff were friendly, was a little leery of the neighborhood and of having to park at bank lot next door plus outside doors to rooms, however they told me the parking lots are patrolled by a security guard and I didn't hear any disturbances or see any homeless people in the area. The breakfast was great with breakfast sandwiches,... More

The room was spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. They have a free breakfast and are conveniently located near the train station - only takes 18 minutes to get to downtown Chicago from their location. Everybody was friendly. Restaurants are near by walking distance. Reasonably priced - I would stay again

We were on a road trip so we needed a place to park the car without breaking the bank. Chicago is the 3rd largest city in the nation and the prices of parking and staying there reflect it. This location was awesome because we parked the car for free and hopped on a 20 minute train ride to hangout in... More

This was our second stay at Carlton within the last 3 years and both times we found the hotel service to be excellent. The staff was very helpful with any questions and available anytime. The room was small but clean and the location was the best. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and when in Chicago again, we certainly... More
