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.

We stay in Carlton Inn Midway for July 4th. Because we driving from Champaign to Chicago and plan to see the fireworks, so we want to find a hotel with free parking and close to transportation and cheap. 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. The free shuttle was a real help to and from the airport and taking us to the local Walgreens for things... More

The Staff at the Carlton Inn are all superb. - friendly - accommodating - resourceful At first I was suspicious as to why they went above and beyond the standard. No ulterior motives; truly sincere and they obviously love working for this Hotel. Pick up and drop off, close to the orange line to the LOOP, convenient and extremely affordable.... More

Check in nice and simple and room, with FREE parking, very comfortable and clean. After a quick freshen up and, as offered, we popped back to Alex for a great overview of Chicago. How to get... More

Came to Chicago for a weekend with my son for a Cubs game. Looking for hotels was challenging as you know. Came across the Carlton Inn and read the reviews and then called to ask a few questions. The staff was as advertised. From the shuttle from Midway to the shuttles to/from the train station (which is only a 3... More

Great hotel at a great price! I've stayed in more modern hotels, but the Carlton Midway was clean and comfortable. Kudos must go to Gary and his staff, their greatest asset. Everyone was so helpful and accomodating. Need early check-in or late check-out? No problem! Need directions? No problem! They'll find it online for you and print the map. They... More

A great value in Chicago. rather than stay downtown, pay exhorbitant prices and then still be charged an extra $25 a night to park the car we opted to stay at the Carlton. This is a nice motel, very clean, has comfortable beds, and super friendly and helpful staff. The parking is free and you just hop on the L... More
