We stayed in two rooms in the Motor Inn section of the Carleton Hotel in Oak Park in late June, 2006. The rooms were of average size, and were very clean and everything was in good repair. The decor could certainly use some updating, but for $90 per night in beautiful Oak Park, it was OK. The rooms each had a small kitchen area with a sink and refrigerator, and one room had a microwave. There were dishes and silverware stocked in the kitchens. The bathrooms are very small, but there is an extended dressing room area that you can close off to make it seem less claustrophobic. The bathroom fixtures and tile seemed new and were very clean, but there is no counter space around the sink.
It is a 1-block walk to the Green Line el and about 25 minutes into downtown Chicago, so it worked pretty well for sightseeing. Not only is the room rate cheaper, parking is free for guests, so we saved the $20+ daily parking charge we would have paid at a downtown hotel.
The hotel desk staff was not all that pleasant, but the person who answers their e-mail is friendly and helpful. Overall, we were not disappointed with our experience at this hotel.
