The Carlton Inn was perfect for our overnight stay. We needed a pet friendly hotel near Midway for the night before our flight. Somewhere that would accommodate us and our 2 small dogs (Maltese). The room was very very comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff were consistently wonderful. I've travelled the globe extensively on business and can honestly...

We chose this hotel based on the reviews and the fact that we didn't want to spend the money to stay downtown. We couldn't have been happier. The staff here is EXCELLENT and very helpful, the beds are very comfortable. The hotel is also a 5 minute walk to the Pulaski train station so you can catch the train to...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night. We arrived after midnight, and the check-in went smoothly. A guard outside promptly directed us to a parking spot, for which there was no charge. The hotel has exterior corridors and could easily become a dump if not properly managed. This one was clean on the outside and the...

Great little motel on South Archer in Chicago. Parking is FREE and security is OK. Staff is very helpful and attentive. Housekeeping is excellent! Close to CTA station on Pulaski which is the best way to downtown.

Got 2 rooms. One for us, one for daughter and son-in-law. The 4 of us agree, best beds and pillows we have ever had in a motel. Room was clean. We really liked the FREE off-street parking. Price was very reasonable for being 6 miles from downtown Chicago. Price was about $125 including tax, per room. Near Midway, but I...

They let us check in early which was nice. We also had free & safe parking. The staff at reception were extremely helpful & went out of their way to help us with all enquiries. Our room was spacious and very clean. It was roughly a 5 minute stroll to the Orange Line to the city and we felt safe...

I stayed at the Carlton Inn Midway for three nights in mid-October as I was running the 2013 Chicago Marathon. The hotel is basically a value motel, with doors opening outdoors onto parking spots. While some used to paying less than $100 a night will consider the rate high, I found a better rate on its website than Hotels.com, so...

I checked in the hotel at around 7am and I had noticed they were serving breakfast. I asked if my husband and I could have breakfast before we entered the room. The hispanic man at the front desk told me I had to pay $15.00 for breakfast. My husband paid the $15.00 even though I thought that it was a...

Gary G, General Manager at Carlton Inn Midway, responded to this review

Dear Madonna B., Thank you for your review. I do apologize for any misunderstanding or possible miscommunication regarding breakfast –the facts are as follows: As many hotels around airports do- we offer an unadvertised daytime short stay airport layover rate based on availability for guests between flights. The deeply discounted rate is roughly 50% of our regular rate and includes...
