My 3 teenagers and I really enjoyed our 2 day stay here. The staff were so very helpful and flexible allowing us to stay a while longer while we packed up. We appreciated the free parking, free breakfast, recommendations and directions to our destinations and not having to ask for extra towels or help with our luggage. They seemed to...

As everyone says "GREAT FRIENDLY AWESOME staff. Steve, Nicole, Dean and Nicole treated my friend and I with courtesy, respect and patience beyond description. My own family falls short compared to these folks. It is very reasonable and super clean.. And the neighborhood is not that bad, honestly. It's south side of Chicago, ok? I have stayed here three times...

The service at this hotel is the best I have ever received. We stayed at a 4 star hotel in downtown Chicago the night before, and the staff at Carlton blew them out of the water. I wish we would have stayed here both nights. The person that helped us specifically, I believe was named Paul. He seemed genuinely interested...

This hotel has the most helpful and friendly staff imaginable. The room was clean and well furnished, the bed very comfortable. I suggest that boiled eggs at breakfast would be welcome. The area around the hotel isn't attractive which accounts in part, I think, for the very reasonable price. Very convenient location for Midway Airport, and very close to the...

Price was much lower than much of anything closer to the Loop. However the area wasn't the greatest and the breakfast "needs help" (girlfriend's words). Location is good for catching the Orange Line. Staff are very friendly. Shuttle will gladly take you almost anywhere nearby (including to the Orange Line station). It's nothing fancy and the air conditioner could be...

Great location near Midway. Shuttle service over and above what was expected. The staff (including shuttle bus driver) couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Room was great. On a busy street and near an airport, but inside the room, never heard street noise, airport noise or any of my hotel neighbors either above me or to the right and...

We stayed here for one night before leaving on the Amtrak train and stayed for 2 nights after we returned on the train. We used their airport shuttle when we first arrived and they came quickly after we called them. We also used the shuttle to return to the airport on our way home and at 4:30AM the driver was...

Great place to stay!!! In Archer Heights towards the south side, it was a great room (a smoking room once again and it didn't smell). The bed was super comfortable, and the A/C was just fine, and shower water in the morning was SUPER HOT!!! the entertainment center had a HDTV on top, a single cup coffee maker, and a...

We stayed for four nights at the Carlton Inn. The trip to the city is about 20 min in the Orange line. The train station is around ten minutes walk from the hotel, and the neighborhood is safe. First impression: a recently painted hotel, clean surroundings, needs new carpet or tiles on the corridors. Friendly staff, good breakfast. Room was...

We stayed here for three nights while enjoying a family trip to Chicago. We have two young children and didn't want to break our budget. The Carlton Inn was perfect! The hotel was so accommodating, and the staff was outstanding. We've been all over Europe, around the US--we've never had better customer service. The staff was so eager to do...
