Was nervous about a non-major chain in the southside of town. We were shocked how clean, friendly and helpful the staff was. The area wasn't that bad at all. They had a security guard at night. The lobby is new and clean. They offer free continental breakfast with good healthy options as well as a few not so healthy ones... More

Carlton Inn Midway has excellent customer sevice. Staff was very helpful. The rooms were clean. Shuttle service to train station was on-time and runs 24 hours. Takes about 20 minutes to get to downtown Chicago. Breakfast was adequate and a friendly environment to start the day.

We were a little intimidated as we arrived very late at night for a stay before our early morning flight the next day. But when we checked in we found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. The room was adequate for the price. The shuttle service was very nice both directions, and they even had bottles of cold water... More

There was free parking, which was a plus in Chicago. The room looked pleasant at first sight, but after looking around, we found that the bathtub had sitting water with a weird yellow stain. There are also tiny spiders in every corner in the bathroom as well. We also wished there was conditioner. The room also had a moldy-pee smell,... More

Went to Skokie with my elderly mother for a family event. On our way back to the airport for our flight home, I received a text from the airline that the flight was delayed. A half hour later received another text that the flight was cancelled. They put us on a 10:45 flight and to sum it up they cancelled... More

We came up for the weekend to visit Navy Pier for an event. The staff were SO nice and friendly, very clean rooms, white castle at breakfast was FANTASTIC! I'm very picky about where we stay and this place did not disappoint. We arrived at night and I'll admit, I questioned the neighborhood at first, but I'm also not a... More
