Fantastic people. They drove us back and forth to the airport to get our lost luggage - drove us to a great restaurant for Chicago style pizza! The owner drove my husband to Target to get a new suitcase because ours was wrecked during our flight. Drove us to the train station. Everyone in Chicago was very nice. Can't wait... More

Someone might question the location due to the surrounding neighborhood, but fear not as this property is very well maintained, clean, helpful staff, airport shuttle if needed, and a nice breakfast. It is just so convenient to the airport. Many choices of restaurants in a two block radius. We had an early flight departure and wanted to be near the... More

From Midway 10 minutes or free shuttle... solid breakfast clean rooms and free parking...The staff at this property will make you think that Chicago's the friendly most affable city in the world...No request is too much and if they can't help they will find a plan B...Highly recommend!

Our stay here was almost worth the money if it were not for the malodorous atmosphere created by the nicotine impregnated sticks. Yes, it smelled like cigarettes in our "non-smoking" room. Otherwise, the concierge, Steven, was friendly and comfortable to talk to. The room was clean and everything was working. The hot breakfast is adequate, but watch out for the... More

We were coming back from Portugal, with flights all the way to Sacramento. But weather and mechanicals kept us from getting home, and we had to make last minute reservations for a (very) short night in Chicago. Thank goodness for the Carleton Inn. They had a free shuttle that picked us up at Midway and took us back at 4am.... More

Large, clean, comfortable room which appeared as depicted in online photos. Bathroom was adequate. No noise issues from airplanes or guests during my stay. Area felt safe. Walking distance to supermarket and many chain restaurants. Friendly staff. Free parking. Great for visit to Uinversity of Chicago. Price point can't be beat.

This is more motel like than I was expecting. I thought the pictures were slightly misleading. Room was also very warm. The a/c unit did not work well. Also a little turned off by the soap dispensers. Just very 2 star. Clean nice staff just was expecting more. Easy to get to and right by airport as stated.

Our flight got cancelled and we were stranded, this hotel was an oasis for us in time of need. Very close to Chicago Midway Airport. Shuttle service was excellent, staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. This is an older style motel that looks to be recently renovated. Comfortable, clean room that included table and chairs, fridge and microwave. We had... More

Although it is not within walking distance to any tourist attraction, most of the attractions can be reached by Orange (Loop) subway line which is 5 minutes’ walk around the corner and is on a busy street. I came back after 10:00 pm and a lot of cars were still on the road. I was told by the hotel it... More
