I really enjoyed my stay at the Carlton Inn Midway. When we first arrived I wasn't thrilled about the layout with the doors opening directly to the outside but my fears were relieved when everything was extremely quiet and we felt very safe. The staff here is excellent. They are extremely helpful with information about local places to visit, directions...

Room was very large with unexpected microwave and fridge. Plenty of parking with bank parking lot next door that they allowed us to use. Nice new mattress and provided toiletries. AC was a bit weak and the maid was rude and kept knocking on our door insisting that we remove the do not disturb sign. My guess is she got...

We stay in Carlton Inn Midway for July 4th. Because we driving from Champaign to Chicago and plan to see the fireworks, so we want to find a hotel with free parking and close to transportation and cheap. At first look, I have to be honest that we are a little bit disappointed because it looks like a ordinary motel....

My friends and I selected Carlton Inn when we flew into Chicago to attend a concert at the United Center.

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....
