We were flying out of Midway ariport, and spent the night at the Carlton. It was snowing, and we needed to get dinner. Their shuttle dropped us at a restaurant, and came back to pick us up when we were done. Door to door service! When we arrived back in Chicago after a week in Mexico, they were right there... More

Hi - I had visited Chicago in Nov 2015 and stayed at this place for 2 nights. My criteria for stay was free parking, free wifi and breakfast - I wanted to drive down to this place with my wife and 3 yr old daughter. I needed to stay at a place from where I could have reached downtown in... More

If I could, I would have rated the Carlton 3 1/2 but that was not a choice. Some things were great such as the gentleman working reception when we arrived late at night and upgraded us to a King and actually saved a parking space for us! Everyone there was very helpful, courteous and friendly. The outside of the property... More

Stayed at the Carlton Inn during the Chicago Marathon weekend. It was affordable and the rooms were much nicer than I expected. Yes, it is out of the city, but, free parking and the trains are just a block and a half away. The hotel even made sure they picked us up at the station so we didn't have to... More

the hotel is minutes from Chicago's midway airport and all public transportation. The staff are very helpful in directing and assisting you in where you want to go. The rooms are worth the price, and they are clean and well kept up. The free breakfasts are also a bonus for any traveler. Great value

We often stay here when we come to take our daughter back to college. It is conveniently located a few miles from I-55, and about 20-30 minutes or so from downtown and U Chicago (depending on traffic). There is a Walgreens and a Target a few minutes' drive away if you have any sudden shopping needs, and down the street... More

The management and staff were very helpful. They went out of their way on several occasions, driving us to the train and picking us up. The breakfast was enjoyable, delicious pancakes. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the quilts are washed, which is a nice touch. The hotel was quite close to the train and shops. In spite of the... More

We chose this motel based on other reviews, and are pleased to report it is a wonderful option when visiting Chicago. The rates are reasonable and the shuttle to McCormick (for an additional charge) was prompt and actually enjoyable due to the drivers' knowledge and personalities. Check in was a breeze (we had booked on priceline.com), the room was clean,... More

We chose this hotel since it was close to Midway Aifrport. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the airport which is really convenient. The room was a good size and all the amenities are provided, including a fitness center. In the morning, a good breakfast is provided to hotel guests featuring both hot and cold items. The pancake machine... More
