The Carlton Inn near the midway airport is a decent friendly place to stay.The room was clean if not well appointed. The bed was horrible, lumpy and hard on one side and lumpy and soft The grounds and surrounding area was clean and well kept. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They were also very responsive to room requests. But, the best reason to stay at the Carlton Inn is the shuttle service. In particular one driver who made our stay terrific. He picked us up from the airport with pleasant conversation, made a couple suggestion for where to eat and helped us out with some necessities we had forgotten. He ran us around a couple more times always pleasant and helpful. He also teaches martial arts to kids at the local rec center. He is a true chicagoian. They serve a free continental breakfast, but don't be fooled the pancakes taste like rubber. Do try out Pindos for breakfast. The neighborhood is not the greatest so do take them up on the free shuttle service. The L is only a couple blocks away and they will shuttle you over. If you take a cab into downtown it will cost $25-$30. All in all the Carlton is not the Hilton, but worth the money so if you go say hi to our driver for us.
