(Guest Review by Corey) Planned on staying here because of this site. I found the room full of cots with a security guard. Some of the cots have pillows and blankets as well.

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Airside
Pros: Designated sleeping area
Cons: none

flew into Midway at midnight and had a meeting at 8am. My company is in startup mode so I try be be frugal when traveling. I cozied up in Concourse C on the ground and at 1am was woken up by a police officer, letting me know that they would be cleaning the concourse soon and that it would be a good idea to go to concourse a, where there was a designated sleeping area. I walked down to Concourse A and another polite officer pointed me to a massive room with 100ish cots/pillows and blankets, about 20 of which were occupied. I cozied up and would have fallen right to sleep but there was a dude snoring so loud it was comical. Like seriously I couldn't have snored louder if I tried. Lots of people were laughing at the dude, a few were annoyed. The cop told me that they'd wake us at 4:30 when more passengers start arriving, but I slept past fiv continued >>

(Guest Review) What a pleasant surprise when i found myself at Midway at 12:30 am in the morning waiting for my 5:30 am flight and was told of the pm travel assistance program. As i ticked passenger I was allowed a cot, blanket and pillow in a semi-dark room. Also provided was a guard while I slept! In the morning the guard handed me a zip lock block with lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste and alcohol wipes! Got some shuteye! Thank you Chicago!

Comfortable for a quick overnight

by chopperman (August, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Just for the fun of it
Where: Airside
Pros: Clean, little noise, toilets, water fountains, 24 hour food/drink available
Cons: Light not turned off, no bench seats

Concourse A and B are the busiest, so use Concourse C. Only infrequently used by Suncountry and Allegiant, it is very quiet and clean. The overhead lights stay on all night so bring a mask to cover your eyes. No bench seating so I used a foam mattress on the floor, along with a borrowed airline blanket, and I was pretty comfortable. Got some good rest. Some of the food court is open 24 hours so there is food/drink when needed. Some security and cleaners wandering around at night by no-one bothered me for my 6 hours there.

(email submission from Benjamin) Decided to stay overnight after arriving to Midway around 11:00 PM and finding the outrageous prices of hotels in the area. THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT! STAY IN CONCOURSE 'C'! Later in the night they set up cots with blankets/pillows provided. No, they aren't the best or most comfortable items but they do the job. The airport had 2 security guards watching over us all night long. At 4 or 4:30 AM that same security guard wakes everyone up and let's you know they're taking back the cots because 'the airport is now open'. I moved down about 25 more feet into the waiting area of Concourse C which is nearly a private concourse separate from all the madness of the A and B concourses of Midway. Outlets, benches and a bathroom are all right there and little to no flights coming in and out. I highly suggest Concourse continued >>
