The Carleton of Oak Park is indeed a beautiful historic hotel However at over $250 a night completely disappointing Hardly no amenities or better yet any at all for this price

The hotel offers two room types, Boutique and motel Their website does not show more expensive boutique rooms have a view of either a brick wall or the parking lot, no gardens as depicted in pictures They did not have one functioning vending machine on all 4 floors Literally no where to purchase bottled water or any other simplicities No coffee station in the lobby, no continental breakfast at minimum Staff was cordial but looked at us like we were bothersome when we asked for nearby restaurant suggestions Nothing in immediate walking distance We had to ask the front desk to provide water Better off spending money at a Marriot

We celebrated our anniversary yesterday and stayed here We were surprised by the hotel with champagne and chocolate strawberries in our room,nice touch 😉 It was a lovely experience overall

Though we could imagine how beautiful the scenery is in the summerwe will definitely be back! The property is huge, pool is big enough to swim laps, there’s a hot tub too Gym is also very big There’s a cute restaurant that over looks the lakewe didn’t get to try it because we arrived after 3pm and it’s only open for breakfast and lunch but you can still get dinner later in the bar/lounge Clean, beautiful,relaxing property and staff was very nice as well

One of the most romantic hotels I’ve ever stayed at Rooms were clean, and a big plus is that they have windows that actually open and you can get some fresh air in the room The front desk was professional and attentive

The design of the building and the location give you that unique lodge feel, like you’re somewhere in the mountains of Austria Great stay, and will stay here whenever I’m in the area They are dog friendly and the prices are more than fair $25 daily pet fee and 60lbs weight limit

Marian Jones

Love love love the location The scenery was beautiful The rooms could have been cleaned

There was dust every where My niece room had a spider web in the corner of the room with a spider So that room hadn’t been cleaned in awhile The bathroom sink had mold or something around the faucet So i did cleaning myself Because staff said the rooms don’t get cleaned until the 3rd day

Joe and Liz was very friendly and helpful to all of my needs The housekeeper I didn’t get her name but she had the room looking brand new I checked high and low and the room was cleaned and smelled fresh

I never been to this location and was surprised that I ever booked here before Next morning booked for my birthday with a bigger room I am excited already Five star service from the Franklin Park staff

Jennifer Schmuhl

The room my husband & had chosen was HYPNOTIC The staff was great & the room spotless & there’s also a little store in the front where you can buy different fun items if you wanted Loved it we ended up staying overnight, I’m so glad we did because theres so much to do

Will have to go again & pick a different room * It’s great this place is 10 minutes from our home & didn’t even know 😁 *

Alex Alex

Nice location You do have to be a member, which takes 4 hours to get approved during working hours or 48 hours otherwise I think membership was $30 for the whole year

After you get approved, you get to choose the options for the room (champagne etc)This location is motel style with the parking in the middle The office is right at the entry and they have all types of stuff available for purchase, like water, soda, candy, chocolate strawberries, bubble baths, lotions, flowers They only car info they need is the make, model and color, license plates are not required We were staying in the Prism room and it was very neat There were rose petals on the bed and the floor They also had 3 playing dice complementary as part lf the assembly The jacuzzi and shower are combined but the toilet is separated There were more then enough towels and also bath robes which were available for purchase too The color changing lights above the bed are super fun to discover The only downside is the TV is not smart so you won’t be able to connect to Netflix or any provider to watch a movie if you choose so Overall a great experience

Pamela M. Allen

My boyfriend and I are members of IHG hotels and almost exclusively book at Holiday Inn Express when we travel within the US for the excellent value provided—the clean and spacious rooms, pool, gym, computers/internet, and the endless options at the free continental breakfast buffet

I have stayed at 4 Holiday Inn Express locations this year so far and this one was the worst of them all The staff was nice though not exceptionally kind, and the breakfast was great as per usual, but the building is in terrible shape Discolored carpets were the first bad thing I noticed in the hallway on the way to my room, and upon entering room 113, I noticed a musty, earthy smell and grayish splotches all over the ceiling The room felt exceptionally humid, despite the thermostat being set to 68 degrees F and there being an obvious stream of AC running into the room From my educational/work background, I am positive this is a clear example of a sick building Someone else here noted in their review that the room humidity when they stayed was 82%, which is indeed hazardous for human health as mold will surely grow in the building—and already is This was not the quality of room I expected from a Holiday Inn Express I was really sad and disappointed to see this room, reminiscent of a cheap motel This type of experience is the reason I book with Holiday Inn Express as opposed to other hotels Luckily the next night I stayed in a different, beautiful Holiday Inn Express location, so I am sure this one is an outlier Please do better… the state of this location is a shame!

Heather Cousineau

This hotel was ok, but not quite up to the standards I expect for a holiday inn express The walls are thin, you can hear road noise as well as conversations in rooms nearby The room itself was a nice size, with comfy beds and plenty of pillows

The bathroom wasn’t quite as clean as I would prefer There were dark hairs in the shower/tub as well as on the floor The breakfast was lackluster, but I settled for cereal and called it enough The front desk gal was very helpful, and the shuttle driver was nice

Kelli Hamilton

The building is brand new, but already looking aged Seems like maybe the original build was not the best Our toilet paper holder was already separating from the wall and there was edging missing on the bathroom cabinets

The dining area smelled strongly of mold, so much so that I couldn’t sit there to eat I likely wouldn’t stay there again

OK it’s not the worlds worst Marriott but it’s darn close AC doesn’t function well, you can’t see out the windows because they’re so fogged up inside the glass There is a sign leading to an ice machine on my floor and it was just an empty alcove

But what really bothered me was the television Not the television itself was bad but the service was abysmal Not like your standard Marriott Just scrolling guide with only about 30 channels, most of them just worthless No guide, you had to just remember what channel you liked wait for the scrolling and then go to it No possibility of logging in with on demand All Marriotts have had this as standard issue for the past five years or so, this is just silly and frustrating Posting this review now, but going up the chain of command to make sure the president and CEO of Marriott are aware of these inconsistencies The hotel looks nice from the outside but once you get inside you realize that really it’s just a one and a half star motel at best

Irfan Waseem

Horrible experience The hotel is extremely dull and run down and location is not great either On top of that, the front desk Staff named Dana was extremely rude

We were visiting from NJ where the indoor mask mandate had been lifted I totally understand the different mask mandate in illinois however, the staff needs to be courteous in reminding people for wearing masks She screamed at us saying “wear your mask NOW” We reported the hotel to the Marriott customer service and checked out right awayThis hotel is not worth my money or my points I visit Chicago every month and this hotel is totally off my list I would recommend the hotel management to properly train their staff and manager in customer service

Heidi Pinkham

NEVER will stay here again, nor would I recommend Hotel run down and employees rude The breakfast was a joke

I ordered French toast The preparer toasted the bread in a toaster, sprinkled confectionary sugar on it and served with syrup The drink I ordered expired 2 months ago My sister ordered a “Starbucks” coffee and it tasted like water When she tried to get another cup, the manager was rude to her and gave her another cup of watered down coffee Seriously, this is a Marriott???

Staff was extremely courteous I booked the room the night before our stay Got an excellent room, very clean and spacious

Special shout out to the young lady at reception, upon checkout she mentioned that my daughter didn’t have a coat and that it was like 10 degrees outside Which made me realize we left it on the chair in the room I am extremely grateful for the great customer relations this young lady provided If I’m ever back in town this is where I’ll be staying I wish I could remember her name, but we checked out around 11 am on March 12 2022

Piriyatharisini Thamilselvan

The rooms were good and spacious There were all basic electronics like coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, hairdryer, iron box and table, safety locker and TV set Morning breakfast was really good and ample

The potatoes and eggs were warm and comforting In the evening the UNO Pizzeria served good The only con was the cooling cycles in rooms were bit uneven but was manageable with constant fan But overall we had a comfortable stay for 3 days with a toddler and an infant

La Reina Harris

My room was comfortable and the floor I was on was quiet The manager that assisted me when I called at 0400 while at work was very helpful, she checked to see if rooms were available for an early check-in request Luckily she did have a room for me and greeted me by name upon my arrival

One downside to this wonderful work-business stay for me, the flat-affect African American female working the front desk on 4/17 was a bit short in her demeanor and she had the nerve to say she spoke with me at 0400 Not! She clearly has no accent off any kind People who want to claim good deeds who’ve done nothing are not to be trusted, including those who lack customer service skills for a major hotel chain I will make sure to refer this hotel to my Nurse & Dr colleagues for their business travel trips

This hotel truly is a hidden gem! We have been coming here for years with family and friends There is so much to offer—indoor/outdoor pool, golf, 2 restaurants, game room and more The hotel is just gorgeous, as well, and the staff is amazing! From the time you check-in, you feel welcomed

I have to give a huge shout out to our absolute favorite staff member, Willie, at the pool/golf bar He is amazing—hardworking, personable, efficient, and just an overall fantastic person! Such an asset to the hotel We already can’t wait to come back!

My wife and I were here for a 1 night 2 day work conference We really enjoyed our stay Everyone was friendly and the hotel has so many amenities (large outdoor and indoor pools, nice selection of restaurants)

The conference food, snacks, drinks were great with a lot to choose from Our room was extremely clean and the beds were super comfy Thank you for a great experience Hilton team!

Karissa Plautz

Beautiful views of the golf course and skyline Clean room and bathroom Comfortable king size bed

Modern 2 restaurants and bar Friendly and helpful front desk staff Booked 2 rooms 3months ahead of time and happy to be on the same floor a few rooms away from each other Only downfall is we did ask for room service but they did not refresh towels or clean bathroom like asked

Good hotel Quite busy but patrons and staff are good citizens Room good for being a budget hotel

Can’t find better bargain Relax in indoor heated pool – good for kids to enjoy Great free breakfast Good place to stay outside of downtown Although not too far from downtown, traffic doesn’t do justice though Expect highway traffic delays as part of your trip

Just had a family stay at one of the corner suites The room was relatively spacious and looked great with lots of windows though we had the curtains closed mostly due to the sun The décor and the furniture were slightly outdated, feels a bit retro but still in a classy taste which I like

The kitchen area was a bit small but manageable The sink counter space was adequate but hope they utilize the extra space on the side during remodeling Tub and toilet “room” was a little awkward when opening the door since the toilet is in close proximity with the door, but the area was clean, no damages, no rattling shower plumbing fixtures and sloppy caulking job Tub drains well! Beds were comfortable The thing I loved the most about this hotel was the AC unit, it’s whispering quite unlike most other hotels The irony is, the noise from I90 was quite loud Staff member were very accommodating and friendly Having Outback right attached to the hotel worked out great The location is near the Cumberland blue line station You can walk but there is a section of the route doesn’t have sidewalk starting from Hooters So this may not suitable for people with suitcases The area feels safe overall (during the day)

Oumar Shariff

My favorite place to stay in Chicago Martha the manager is amazing and always has a smile on her face They will go all out to accommodate guests

The airport shuttle is also a huge plus Lots of choices to stay at near the airport but this hotel consistently provides excellent service It’s my home away from home in Chicago I don’t have one negative thing to say about this place They also have underground guest parking that helps with the weather in Chicago

Booked a king room Got double full size beds that barely fit both of us Both beds didn’t use a fitted sheets, which is fine if the flat sheets actually covered the mattress

Both were not completely covering the mattress at the foot of the bedAirport shuttle arrived and left late Appeared to just be sitting on the side of the hotel across the street until 5am where it pulled up to pick up people there before coming over to the Doubletree If it cannot leave on the hour as stated, the time should be adjusted Shuttle driver left the door shut until loading all bags making us wait, before letting everyone on (although there were guests from the other hotel already on the shuttle)! Why would it matter if people are already on? I’ve seen this before at this hotel during the winter thinking it I’d appropriate to have guests wait in freezing weather to board

John Miller

First impression of my visit this past weekend (6/10/22) was that this place was going to be great The lobby was impressive and well maintained and check-in was friendly and efficient Unfortunately this trend did not continue

Once we reached the ninth floor the halls were overly warm a thermostat on the wall near the elevator stated it was 77 degrees and it remained that way our entire stay My group and I were treated to various unpleasant smells over the course of our weekend stay in the same hallway Again our first impressions of the room were great but that faded as the weekend drew on A moderate sized stain on the carpet we discovered when we moved a chair to play board games, small spots of peeling wallpaper, messy grout in the bathroom shower, incredibly dirty AC/heater vent, and mini fridge but no microwave were amongst the biggest annoyances for a room of the price range Breakfast was the biggest surprise, there was a buffet with a pretty standard spread of items like scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cereal, and a fruit bar We were waved over to a table and then went to get our food, some of the items that should have been cold were room temp like the cottage cheese Imagine our surprise when the man who waved us to the table brought us checks as it was not posted anywhere or ever told to us that this was not complimentary like it is a “lower” caliber hotels After tax something like $21 per person for this buffet One of our group only had a small bowl of cereal and a glass of water Overall very disappointed

Jesús Wong

Great place to stayRooms were ample and nicely furnished, I like coffee pots that do not use pods My room had a tub, unfortunately didn’t had a chance to enjoy it

Location is unbeatable, walking distance to the outlets and very convenient shuttle service to the airportEven taking the CTA train is just a 10 minutes walk awayFront desk helped out group a lot, we had special requests and they worked hard to help usGreat place to stay, the welcome cookie is a nice touch

I even saw an employee wiping down the pictures I was like “WOW” they are cleaning here Lol I will definitely return

Ayleen Valenzuela

Overall, an okay stay My family of four stayed for a 3 night stay Not once did we have our linens changed, room cleaned or trash picked up

Also, no fresh towels there were toys from likely the previous guests inside the room goes to show the room was not cleaned well beforehand There were red stains all over the carpet The amenities were why we stayed – Free parking, free hot breakfast, and the pool My kids enjoyed coming down and the selection of food It was convenient, but I would not come back based on service and cleanliness

Danijela Tomic

I booked a room a month before and I arrived at 4:30pm only to be told to wait because the room was not ready and that they were inspecting the room I waited half an hour with my husband and two children, we were tired and hungry after our flight When I asked why the room wasn’t ready when check in was at 3pm, they didn’t have a specific answer

After that, another woman came and said that she would give us a better room That was really nice but all I wanted is a room I booked and check in on time Breakfast is ok, nothing special Two stars only because of the check in process and because the housekeepers come every third day And after the third day they changed only one bed sheet and left the other dirty The location of the hotel is great!

I really liked the room environment quiet and peaceful with clean sheets but old towels were in the closet place just laying dirty Also, while completing my assignment for school Staff member cut the WI-FI off while submitting my work could not believe it Thanks for having good Professor at my University I did not get 10 % deduction for failing to submit my work on time

I am not picky and usually very easy to please, all I need is clean sheets and a quiet night I wouldn’t even complain about the whiff of marijuana I caught around the premisesBut when the neighbors next door wake me and my entire family up at 2am, (including 14yo daughter), by banging (on) the bed against the wall, this is where I draw the line for acceptable accomodations

Britt Lewis

Hotel is definitely dated, in need of upgrades for sure We had a few issues with our room (A/C went out, condensate line plugged and got the carpet soaked) however they relocated us to another room Staff was phenomenal with the exception of a front desk employee (a male) who got an attitude and acted like he wanted to go outside and fight

Want to thank Nathan for fixing everything!! He is good as gold

Ben Cerveny

Everything was very average or below in the rooms No fridge, just a “cooling box”, the toilet was put in crooked so the door would close in the tiniest of bathrooms and the whole place is from the 70s They are updating this year which is very needed

Also, the pool was closed even though the website says they have one The only savior is the bed was fairly comfy

Jack Oxley

The stay at the hotel was nice and quiet The food was very good as well as the service However, I pre-paid for a room through a third party company on 7/27 and 7/28 and then received an email from the hotel with charges for 7/28 for the room

I have been attempting to contact the accounting department to correct it several times leaving messages with no return or email correcting the additional charges This is bad customer service and wouldn’t recommend the hotel unless this has been corrected

I was looking for a place outside of Chicago and didn’t know my way around the suburbs! This Holiday Inn had good reviews, so I said yes!It was clean and quiet! The service was great and I felt safe the whole time! There’s complementary parking and breakfast! It’s located in a pleasant neighborhood, and next to a Police Station and a church!I also found out that Super H-Mart was just down the road! I would stay here again!

I am not sure if 3 stars were deserved Before moving from a different Holiday Inn Express & Suites near Midway International Airport, I lost my wallet and debit card Some way, the previous hotel shared my banking information

My friend agreed to pay until I could repay him When we went inside to check-in, I was not required to show my lost ID and had already been check-in though likely not legallyOtherwise, the hotel was nice Just be careful when exiting the parking lot to use the correct exit I did not drive but navigated I accidentally put us on the wrong roadway since I did not know the area

All things considered, it’s a pretty good hotel FYI if you’re going here, don’t count on their breakfast options I stayed a week and they never had any fruit options, and only had yogurt one day

Also almost every day the breakfast meat option was the crummy sausage patty Otherwise it’s a pretty nice hotel and there’s stuff to do in the area

Clean, comfortable room I got upgraded to a king suite Nice staff

Ideal location for me Just three things I was not happy about-Channel up/down on the TV remote didn’t work Had to manually put in channels Hard to do when you don’t know the channel numbers-Phone in room didn’t work-I was told pool was heated It was not

Pros: Comfortable beds, quiet, the pool is huge Showers had good water pressure The front desk guy that I saw the most was super nice and helpful

Cons: Things that were listed on the website were either unavailable or not true (no free breakfast, the pool is NOT heated, the restaurant is not open) If you have a lot of luggage and need to haul it in with a cart the entrance from the side parking lot isn’t accessible (there’s a step to get in the door) and the back parking lot is gravelI think a lot of the cons wouldn’t have stung so much if the price per night hadn’t been so high I kind of ate the cost because I thought I was paying for the amenties, but to get there and have to go to WalMart to get microwave breakfasts and dinners suckedI would only stay here again if the rooms were 100 or less a night, or if they got the breakfast/restaurant situation straightened out

AWFUL place to stay including management I took pictures of my room that I will be posting on other social mediaThe room was not cleaned

An opened beer was in the fridge, safety bobby pin on the floor, tape literally holding some of the wall together, and the mirror when steamed stated ‘TRUMP 2021!’ I talked to the supervisor when he came in at 4pm only to say they will just take 20% off and can’t find any product to remove the sign on the mirror! Room preparation is a simple task Hotels accept damage deposits, so most issues should be an easy fix, just buy a new mirror or washing product then! Seems very lazy on staff
