Wow! Booked the Carlton Inn at the last minute. I called the Carlton Inn and speak with Steven about my delay and I arrived after 9p and the front clerk greeted me with a smile. Was greeted by Jeff,wow.

I was very happy with this hotel, it was everything it advertised and more. When I first arrived and went to check in, I was impressed with the amazing greeting I received from the gentleman on duty. He was very courteous, professional, and welcoming. He was very knowledgeable of the area and the hotel had many documents that had information... More

Clean, attentive staff, were kind enough to open the breakfast area for us at 3:00 a.m. before we left for our flight. The shuttle ran 24 /7. They greeted us with cold water bottles and our car was running with a/c on when we returned on a hot day. Would go back.

Pro: close to Midway; free shuttle to Midway which was quick to respond; good bed; good breakfast; Steve at the front desk was SUPER! AC was very loud, but that also blocked out the parking lot noise. Con: seemed like a 1950's motel that had been partially renovated; when drapes are open, you are looking at the car parked in...

Liked the hotel. Was only staying for three days in Chicago. Close to public transportation which saves on parking fees. The sheets were clean and everything. But the carpet was terrible once we got out of the shower we notice how black the bottom of our feet got. People were nice, breakfast was decent.

The staff/personnel are very helpful and friendly. The price is not too bad. It’s clean and cozy including the free breakfast and wifi and a nice table for my personal... More

Neighborhood is a bit sketch but if you're flying out of midway this is an great hotel and deal. The airport shuttle was 40m away when I arrived back at Midway and called the front desk. They offered to have me hail a cab and they would pay the bill when I got to the hotel, very nice of them... More

Stumbled on this hotel while looking for an inexpensive room that was close to public transportation, as we were coming in for activities downtown Chicago, but couldn't swing the costs or parking issues there. I honestly wasn't expecting a whole lot, but boy was I pleasantly surprised. The room was nice -- the light blocking shade in the front window... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Shuttle to, and from airport and El was great; prompt and accommodating. Ran me by McD's after picking me up at 10:30 from El. Well maintained and clean. Breakfast was OK+.

We stayed here on our way out of Chicago and on our way back through town. It was very clean. The staff was extremely helpful. We stayed for longer on the first night as we had to whip through on the second night. They held the room both nights.
