Gary G, General Manager at Carlton Inn Midway, responded to this review

Richard, Thanks for taking the time to comment: • Your room was booked through Southwest Airlines via Orbitz and confirmed by you directly with the hotel for arrival Friday the 13th. Your reservations were indeed wrong as you were operating on the premise that you could check in late night on Thursday the 12th just after midnight and the room...

We had the chance to stay here again, and were not dissapointed.

I'm not going to lie, pulling up to the place I was seriously second guessing my choice. This is a motel and is older. With that said, it is very well kept. I was pleased with my room and it certainly met my needs. The staff here...well they went way above and beyond. These are the friendliest people ever. It...

We recently stayed at the Carlton Inn while visiting our kids. Now that we have discovered it, we will never stay anywhere else. The staff is what makes it stand out far and above any other places we've stayed in Chicago. They will do anything they can to make sure your stay is comfortable. They provide transportation from and to...

Just came back from 4 days of seeing the Chicago sites. Hotel was perfect for us. 5 minute walk to Orange Line. Shuttle from airport to hotel, great breakfast to start the day. Spent 12 hours seeing the sites and then 12 hours at hotel. Hotel service was great. Just the little things that made it like when they gave...

We booked a room at the Carlton Inn because of its proximity and shuttle service to Midway International Airport, and arrived late the evening before our flight. Although the hotel is rather rundown and in need of some updating, we were very pleased with the front desk staff and the overall service. Unfortunately, we had no time to sample the...

I go to Chicago every year for a full week of work. The people who work at Carlton Inn remember me. They are the most friendly, helpful, courteous hotel folks I've ever come across.
