Checked into the hotel and went to our room. We make a habit of checking the bed/mattress for bed bugs. Puled the bed sheets up and looked at the side seams of the mattress where they commonly are and leave residue. Found likely evidence of bed bugs. The room also smelled very musty. Went back to the office and told...

Dear h2wo, I am so sorry that you did not have a positive experience at the Carlton Inn. I was very disturbed about your complaint of “likely evidence of bed bugs” during your brief stay. Our Management Staff and Head Housekeepers have had extensive training in identifying and preventing bedbugs. We also participate in an ongoing, aggressive, eco-friendly exterminating and...

Where this hotel really shines is service. The staff are wonderful, from requests, directions, security, to breakfast. Yes its older, however it is affordable, clean and cared for. Our room could have used new carpet, but hey im not sleeping on the floor.

Although we were unfortunate to have two cancelled flights from Midway because of the fire at the FAA facility, we were fortunate to find the Carlton Inn Midway. Making the reservation was easy from the “hotels board” near the baggage claim. It was just a short walk to pick up the shuttle that took us straight to the hotel. The...

The front desk staff is wonderful. They are so friendly and helpful. The hotel is older and more like a motel, outside doors, but clean and bed was comfortable. Free breakfast includes dunkin donuts. Very good at giving you directions wherever you want to go, free shuttle to the "L" train. Refrig and microwave in the room. Bathroom pretty small.

Made an attempt to stay downtown but couldn't due to a large conference that week. Ended up staying at the Carlton Inn due to it's proximity to Midway. The location isn't great but the room was very clean and the hotel staff was very nice. The room was spacious, had great cable, a mini fridge and a very comfortable bed....

From quick pickup at Midway airport to exceptionally friendly staff, the service at Carlton Inn Midway sets it apart from other hotels in the area. When travelling for business, a room is a room so I look for hotels that provide services that make my trip as productive as possible. Everyone at the Carlton Inn is friendly and helpful, even...

Rooms were small but served their purpose. Our room had a microwave and small fridge, but the fridge didnt seem to get cold at all (dial broke off and we had no idea what the setting was). If you had the bathroom door open while sitting on the toliet, your knees hit the door (very small room). But if you're...

This hotel has excellent customer service. They were very helpful in finding anything that we needed in Chicago. They also had a shuttle service that picked us up and took us to the train station for no extra charge.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I had to find a couple of rooms for myself and my 92 year old father-in-law to stay before an early flight out in the morning. They checked us in, then a security guard walked my F-I-L's suitcase up the stairs for us and wouldn't take a tip. I took my rental car...
