There was absolutely nothing spectacular about this hotel. It was very typical. However, the helpful staff kept it from getting a 2 star review. I left my breakfast order hanging on my door at 8p.m. It never came. Reason being that it was never taken off my door! Since this hotel does not have a free breakfast, this did not...

We stayed here for a college softball tournament. It was new and clean and we have no complaints. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant next door was really similar to most free breakfasts at hotels. Cheaper bacon, powdered eggs, etc. but it was good.

In town for my sons baseball game, Holiday Inn was second choice and was pleasantly safified with our stay. Two nice gentleman checked us in and gave us the lay of the land. On site bar - restaraunt was also more than expected. Food was unique with wood fired pizza our favorite. Beds were better than "heavenly" !!! Will recommend.

This is handy for a visit to nearby Murphysboro and the famous 17th Street BBQ. The hotel is good, rooms good, little gym and a decent breakfast. It's clean and comfortable with a small indoor pool. It's nice and quiet location. I have stayed a couple of times and it's a good safe bet.

We were there during SIU's Chancellor and University Excellence weeked. Spent most of our time at the school but we all slept very well which never happens in a hotel. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.

I have stayed at this location twice for business. I am always welcomed by a friendly staff. The rooms are clean and fairly modern with comfortable beds. This hotel has the benefit of a good restaurant and bar attached. I would recommend staying here.

if this is the very best Carbondale has to offer...We are in Trouble! This hotel is Not A PIT! But it has signs everywhere asking you to rate it a perfect 10.

I want to apologize about the condition of the lobby and the windows. I have had the maintenance staff clean the exterior windows of the floors and spoken with the front desk about sweeping regularly. I do hope that you found the room clean and comfortable. Jane Kearney, GM
