    easy to get to from the Green Line and lotsa good restaurants under the rail line in Oak Park. Also like to the YMCA for workouts.

    The only thing good about this hotel is its location in Oak Park.

    We have been guests at the hotel many times through the years not because it is a pleasant place to stay but because they are the only place in town. The horrible smell of stale food when first walking in has persisted for years. The surly and poorly trained registration staff are a complete turnoff. The sooner a new hotel is built in Oak Park the better off we will all be. Our family and their friends are embarrassed by the Carleton but their is no choice.

    My daughter and I were visiting Concordia University Chicago. I was able to get the room quickly and it was close to CUC. However, we did not arrive until 11:30 PM and left around 8:30 AM, so we did not do much there except sleep and shower.

    Unfortunately I received a parking ticket when I was checking into the hotel. Due to the construction and my unfamiliarity with the area, I only saw the one parking lot which was full and I did not see the entrance because I did not drive through the gravel construction area. I am waiting for the manager to call me and hopefully help with this ticket in some way.

    I found the hotel experience to overall very good.

    The only negative is the distance to downtown Chicago. On the cta Green Line to State/Clark it took about 45 minutes.

    Location, location, location.

    I don 't believe that booking on-line indicated that the lowest price was for a motel facility with a difficult parking lot. I upgraded to a room in the mainbuilding although I didn't wasnt to spend that much money.No chain lock on door.Tub slippery.

    I was nervous booking on line, but knew someone in area. Have booked before in bad areas when unknown. Character and location were perfect. Close to train, food, and felt very safe. Parking free! Room was large and even better than explained on internet.

    When checked in front desk was not welcoming, The next more complete opposite, ladies were helpful and very friendly.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Our room was very spacious. The bathroom was also big. We had a little table to sit at and a kitchenette. Everything was very clean. I would come again especially for an extended time since the room was so nice. The hotel was also close to the train into the city.

    They ask us to conserve energy, etc. by using our towels more than one day. This was fine but they should provide more towel bars so all towel could be hung.

  • Older travelers

    The rooms were very nice, and the staff were so helpful, but I'm used to the same level of luxury and service for about $100 less per night. Maybe that's just how it is in the big city.

    No, everything was good. Just the price seemed high.

    Excellent. The kitchenette and huge living space were my favorite items.

    It's a minor issue, but there are some unfinished surfaces that could use attention like painting and polishing.

    The location was wonderful. I was travelling on business and it was so nice to be in a neighborhood instead of off a highway or near an airport. I was in the motel portion which had a wonderful retro vibe. I plan to book again when business takes me to the area.

    The size of the rooms were very nice and fulfilled my needs.

    When I went to check.they tried to put more on the card then what the rooms cost. Became of this I will not stay here again.

  • Older travelers

    The Carlton is a nice but average hotel in a very good location. The do have a wide range of rooms with associated costs from hotel to motel. The hotel rooms might be a little overpriced given current Hyatt and Marriott standards.

    Parking is distributed across several lots with individual spaces often being hard to find.

    I just love staying at this hotel. Great location. Close to Chicago. Walking distance to restaurants in Oak Park. Neighborhood feel.

  • Group of friends

    Location, style, poor Phil's

    Odc stairs, slow elevator, no "points or air miles.

  • Single
    7.8

    The location was great. I had friends in Oak Park and an event in the City. It was less than a block from the EL. It was also close to all the shops and restaurants in Oak Park and the Frank Lloyd Wright neighborhood.

    It is an older hotel, so there is lots of vibration and noise from other visitors.
