    If you're looking to stay in the Midway area, this is the place to do it. I was a bit apprehensive upon seeing a few semis in the parking lot, thinking it might be more of a truck stop than a nice motel, but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the capacious and nicely decorated double room. Each room has a framed photo series of the owner's adorable dog Teddy, who sadly passed on, but his brother Buddy still holds down the lobby area, greeting guests in an adorable tie-dye bandana.

    All of the workers went out of their way to give me a warm welcome and were well-prepared to answer any questions I had. They also informed that their shuttle service, which goes to Midway airport, also goes to the local restaurants and shops around the motel.

    Also, the outdoor seating area next to the office is perfect for enjoying your complimentary Dunkin Donuts breakfast sandwiches on a nice day.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the Carlton Inn, with its dark green and red color scheme, fenced off patio, and fitness room. The guestrooms are fairly simple, standard, and clean. I thought the soap and lotion dispenser in the bathroom was odd, but I'm sure it's more environmentally friendly than the usual single use bottles.

    The motel offers both free parking and a free shuttle to Midway airport, so whether you fly or drive into town, getting around will be easy. It's also quite close to the Orange Line, which will take you into the heart of the city for $2.25.

    The Carton really feels like a home away from home. When I walked in, I was first introduced to the owner’s dog, Bud, whose picture is on the wall of every room. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. Each has a mini-fridge, a microwave, a coffee-maker, free Wi-Fi and Comcast cable. There’s a great little fitness center, and a public pool nearby. While pretty far from downtown Chicago, with a shuttle to and from Midway, the Carlton is very attached to the city via the Orange Line, though it would probably still be easier to have a car. There are plenty of chain restaurants and grocery stores in the area which are accessible by car or capable of delivering (I suggest Giordano’s to first time Chicago visitors). They keep the continental breakfast light and simple, though there are egg sandwiches. I have to say, the staff is noticeably kind and engaging. They’re really proud of their hotel, and for good reason.
