Smooth check in. Requested 2nd floor room not knowing there was no elevator. But managed. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Nice continental breakfast. The airport drivers to and back were very nice. Well worth the sleep and park price!

There are lots of hotels in Chicago, of course. What I want to say is that you want to take balance btwn price and location, this is best hotel for you. You can go downtown in 30 min by train. And hotel price is not high. Staff member is very friendly and supportive.

Clean room. Front desk people were friendly and very helpful. Shuttle service to and from midway airport was very efficient. Complimentary breakfast was decent. Many restaurant options close by. The one I used was a Mexican restaurant within walking distance.

Chose this motel to save $$ over staying downtown and because they allow dogs. Somehow we ended up paying almost $50. more per night than the advertised price on TripAdvisor, but that may be due to excessive taxes, etc. out of the hotel's control. Besides that, I agree with other reviews that the staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient.... More

When I planned my trip to Chicago I was looking for a hotel with Airport shuttle & close to an "el" station - this place fit the bill. Room was very large and clean but how friendly the staff made the choice of this hotel even better. Will definitely keep it on my list of places to stay in Chicago.

Just a 5 minutes walk from the Orange Coast line and with that in 25 minutes to Chicago downtown. Hotel room was clean and OK for the price. Planes fly right over your head, but during the night (11pm to 6am?? ) that stopped.

As a "last minute" booking I was wonderfully surprised with what a great choice I unknowingly made. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, until safely sending us on our way back home the staff made us feel as we were family. The room was comfortable, clean, lived in feel. Was an enormous plus to have a... More

This hotel is located in the middle of a scary neighborhood. When we pulled in, we sat in the car trying to see if there was another hotel in a similar price anywhere but here. When that proved fruitless, we bit the bullet and went in. I gave three stars because the people were beyond kind and helpful. It's also... More

We always do a "Park N Fly" out of Chicago, and since our last 'go-to' hotel really disappointed us, we decided to try the Carlton Inn-Midway this trip even though it was a bit pricier than we were used to. We found it was worth it! The staff was very friendly, and most of all, HELPFUL as all get out!... More

The room was good, the breakfast better and the helpful staff were great. We had a hire car as we were driving from Chicago to Los Angeles so the location of this hotel wasn't a problem for us. If we had stayed in the centre of Chicago it would have cost a fortune. So we found this hotel very good... More
