My friends and I selected Carlton Inn when we flew into Chicago to attend a concert at the United Center. Hotel is near the airport, not near the United Center though The staff is so super friendly and helpful. The free shuttle was a real help to and from the airport and taking us to the local Walgreens for things...

The Staff at the Carlton Inn are all superb. - friendly - accommodating - resourceful At first I was suspicious as to why they went above and beyond the standard. No ulterior motives; truly sincere and they obviously love working for this Hotel. Pick up and drop off, close to the orange line to the LOOP, convenient and extremely affordable....

After a 10 hour drive from Niagara arrived tired and weary at the Carlton Inn to be greeted by Alex, the very welcoming receptionist. Check in nice and simple and room, with FREE parking, very comfortable and clean. After a quick freshen up and, as offered, we popped back to Alex for a great overview of Chicago. How to get...

Came to Chicago for a weekend with my son for a Cubs game. Looking for hotels was challenging as you know. Came across the Carlton Inn and read the reviews and then called to ask a few questions. The staff was as advertised. From the shuttle from Midway to the shuttles to/from the train station (which is only a 3...

Great hotel at a great price! I've stayed in more modern hotels, but the Carlton Midway was clean and comfortable. Kudos must go to Gary and his staff, their greatest asset. Everyone was so helpful and accomodating. Need early check-in or late check-out? No problem! Need directions? No problem! They'll find it online for you and print the map. They...

A great value in Chicago. rather than stay downtown, pay exhorbitant prices and then still be charged an extra $25 a night to park the car we opted to stay at the Carlton. This is a nice motel, very clean, has comfortable beds, and super friendly and helpful staff. The parking is free and you just hop on the L...

The staff at the Hotel was excellent, first time visiting Chicago for pleasure. They mapped out the route for using the train into Chicago, shuttle service provided to the train station. I brought mine and my wives bicycles, they let us store them in there storage room. They provided recommended eating areas and routes for spending the day Saturday at...

Close to the airport but that was all it had going for it. The neighborhood is not some place you would want to walk around at night. There is parking onsite but it is a tight fit. Smallest bathroom I've ever been in. Carpet was dirty and the soap and shampoo come out of a pump stuck on the wall....

Chose this hotel after calling a lot of different options in the Chicago area. The biggest reason I chose it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the desk clerk. I hadn't even made a reservation and was just asking for info about getting to downtown and other tourist attractions from this area of Chicago. She went above and beyond with...

The people were all very friendly and helpful . The shuttle service ( 24/7) to the train station and local eateries was a great service. The continental breakfast was always well stocked. We would definitely stay there again. The price was very reasonable and free parking
