enjoy your stay - user review
I have stayed at this hotel many times. The rooms in the annex are newer than the main part of the hotel, but all the rooms are quaint and cozy. They do have an adjacent motel area which is not nearly as nice. Not many rooms are alike, making it fun to stay more than once. All rooms have fridge and ...

A pleasant adventure - user review
I liked the hotel itself. I felt a little awkward though because I have been to larger hotels with a real concierge. It was noteasy to find out about the city as I would have hoped. I had a pleasant stay for the shor...

Truly comfy! - user review
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Carleton Hotel in Oak Park, IL. This is a home owned, older hotel which has been modernized with all new bathroom facilities. It is clean and comfortable, and has convenient parking. We were made to feel very welcome. It happened to be located near...

quiet spot in oak park - user review
quiet, dignified little hotel. I was at a trade show in Chicago, and found the proximity to the comuter train to be quite helpful. I paid 50 60 dollars less per night than if I had stayed in the city, and the commute was easy. The Philanderer's bar is charming, with excellent waitreses and above ave...

Very Good hotel - user review
The Carleton at Oak Park is excellent; good service, unobtrusive and maintaining a quasi residential view. Two blocks form the green line which takes you right to downtown Chicago. Very helpful desk people and with three good eating places right in the hotel confines. Have no cost wireless in the ho...

Nice older hotel - user review
The hotel is nothing fancy, however, the room was extremely clean and had all the amenities one could need. Didn't try to restaurant, but appeared to be well used by others staying there. Was great to have free parking and wonderful to be so close to shopping and eating places. We parked and walked ...

Great hotel located next to train station for easy access to downtown - user review
The hotel personnel were freindly and helpful. We chose the hotel because it was one block from train for easy access to other parts of the city. We enjoyed ou...

you get what you pay for - user review
the hotel was a good deal. the room was very large, and apartment basically. the area was a bit questionable. a block away from the train and shops. the hotel service was not great. I do think it's a great deal if you don't mind a low level of service, and i would probably stay again, but only to sa...

o.k. for the $ - user review
The hotel was fine if you're not going to spend too much time there. However, it is not convenient for handicapped people. There are steps down to the lobby, and steps up to the elevators. (Yes there is a wheelchair 'lift', but not very convenient.) Our room was on the 4th floor and looked out on an...

Home away from home - user review
This place had a wonderful historic feel while still being well kept and fresh. Definitely felt upscale. Big room, nice funishings, great price. Poor Phil's on the premises is super and we ate there every day. Hotel is one block from the train station so it's very conveniently located to downtown an...

Very clean, interesting location, although still a little pricey. - user review
This was a really nice hotel, but located in kind of a strange place, in the middle of a old town suburban neighborhood. But the location is a good one when trying to stay out of the downtown hustle and bustle. Great places to eat nearby also. Even though it was Chica...

Affordable with Easy Access to Chicago Sites - user review
We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. The rates were very reasonable and the L was just a block away. Although the area is in transition and in the process of renovation, we still felt safe and that we were experiencing a bit of what the near Chicago suburbs were like in the early 20th cen...

Nice and quiet neighborhood!! - user review
With the exception of the front desk personnel (not trained adequately and a little lazy) the rest is very good, mainly the restaurant which is excelent. The mu...

Jeanne & Gil VA Travlers - user review
Wonderful location in Oak Park to explore Frank Lloyd Wright and Ernest Hemmingway venues. Walking distance to Visitor Center. Poor Phils resturant (wraps around street level of the hotel) was a pleasant find (had several meals there). Commuter train station is just down the street. Can be in the Lo...

No title - user review
Comfortable surroundings with a large room. Free parking is a big plus. Not very convenient for business in the city, but the rate is much less and it is only a block from the el. The downside, and to me it is a major downside, was that the wi fi signal was too weak to allow effective access to the ...

The Motor Inn isn't the best way to go - user review
Upon checking in we had a fairly rude clerk who acted like it was my fault when they lost my reservation. We thought we would save some money and stay in the Motor Inn section......
