Carlton Inn Midway

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I always enjoy my stays here. The staff are attentive and helpful.

Bathroom, ceiling & walls need updating. Need new pillows, very uncomfortable. Walls thin, could hear neighbors and drunk guests going to their room in the early morning hours. Small room.

The staff was great; the room was neatly organized but not clean; had bad odor. There evidently was a party on the night we stayed that kept us up all night.

Had a nice stay convienient for wheelchair/walker handicap persons. Onlyi issue was parking blocks too close and had to go around to end of lot to get through, otherwise no other issues

We were in Chicago for a weekend and wanted an inexpensive hotel withn a decent location. This hotel serves this role well. The free parking is nice, the internet works well, the breakfast is standard. The room was only OK. The AC system is old, and it very noisy. The bathroom door opens with difficulty since the new toilet is a bit too large . The whole room leaves impression of being "old". On the positive side, the staff is superfriendly. When we requested a late checkout, they did not cause even slightest problem.

I decided to try this motel based on all the reviews and I was very disappointed It is defenetly not worth $125/night The room really felt cheap and not clean and was very motel ish One hotel guest was constantly yelling because she had problems with something in her room Did not feel the safest place to be

I checked into the hotel, asked front desk about courtesy shuttle from airport. Was given # to call and told it would take 15-20 for shuttle to come. Returned rental car, called # for shuttle, was told 20-25 min. Waited 35 min. Then called again. Was told it would be another 20 min. They did finally come but it took almost 2 hrs. to return a rental car to a location not even 10 min away! So if they don't send the shuttle, DON'T HESITATE TO CALL

Overall the room was clean, attractive. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom clean but could be updated.

Arrived near midnight. Prompt pickup at Midway. Efficient support at the hotel. All services were well-supported (i.e. logistics, computer use, breakfast, chech-in/out).

Parking was a little tight but overall a nice place and pretty convenient to McCormick (about a 25 min drive in the morning a little longer at night)

Prefer to book next time. Quiet place and Good breakfast.

steve(i believe) at the front desk is awesome and extremely professional and courteous. my room was nice. the beds are a little uncomfortable but overall very nice

Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. Nice fire pit and pool. Grill to grill out if needed.

convenient, close to Midway Airport and public transportation

Hotel room was nice and cozy, staff and front desk were excellent.

I booked my hotel through Orbitz which was my first mistake. The hotel is central to shopping, the train and the freeway which was a plus. The staff is courteous. The parking is very limited and you have to get a pass to park in the neighboring bank lot. The rooms are basic and need updating. The sink and tub were cracked and stained. The room and bath were tiny for the money paid. There are soap and shampoo dispensers. It worked for the time I was there but I didn't find it to be comfortable or a value for my money.

Clean, staff friendly, free breakfast starts at 0600 - but I was catching a flight at 0530... And it may not be a hot breakfast available THAT early but they make sure fresh coffee, donuts, etc are available to grab for people w those REALLY early flights. Which is clutch for those "Don't speak to me until I've had coffee or breakfast" types to hold them over until you've gotten to airport, thru security, etc. I was moving back south so I had my work cpu with me and two suitcases that I couldn't carry alone and one of the guys not only carried luggage to room without needing to be asked for help, but did so while I checked in without needing to be asked, brought bags inside and turned the light on so I could see which room it was that late. Nice, roomy rooms. Looks like bed linens and such could def use upgrading tho. Bedsheets seemed threadbare.

Loved that I was able to get a ground room. My Dad is handicapped, it really helped. So happy for the shuttle bus. The driver was very nice and helpful, as were the people at the front desk. I would definitely recommend this place.

The hotel is what I expected for the price! Very friendly staff & very helpful. It's at a great location! About 20 min or more to downtown Chicago! The housekeeping team was awesome at what they do & made sure we had what we needed at any time.

The room met our expectations. We were pleasantly surprised regarding its cleanliness and comfort levels. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. Breakfast offerings exceeded our expectations.
