We stay at the Holiday Inn in Carbondale one-to-two times a year when we visit family. This usually includes holidays. The staff is the friendliest anywhere. A newer, less expensive hotel opened across the street from the Holiday Inn, so we decided to give it a try. Even though it was newer, it was not as clean as the Holiday...

When arriving, the front desk staff were efficient and friendly. The room was spacious and clean including a mini fridge and microwave. The pool was a decent size and well maintained. I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice the staff and hotel was.

The hotel was nice, as was the room, and there was free nutritional snacks on each level near the elevators. Wish the hot tub worked and the pool showed some age, but the water was a good temperature. The attached restaurant was great!

Stayed here for 3 nights a month ago with my kids and it was great. They enjoyed the pool, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The housekeepers always greeted me and had a smile. Being a housekeeper previously for 3 years myself Im always very critical of my room cleanliness, this one passed the test. The only downside...

Nice hotel. Loved the shower. We missed breakfast this morning, ended at 10. Will try again tomorrow. A little pricey in my opinion. Comfortable bed. No complaints with room or staff. I have nothing more to say.

Very friendly people and newer accommodations. The lobby and conference area is a bit musty. Complimentary breakfast is a good value. My only complaint would be my bathroom/shower was not totally cleaned. Posting pictures for the long hair and used soap left behind by the previous visitor. The rest of the room was spotless. The breakfast was fine but the...

From the friendly staff to the comfortable rooms, the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Carbondale is more than a hotel. My fiancé and I have stayed here approximately thirty nights since February, and it is truly our home away from home. Upon our latest check in, we were greeted by the manager, Jane, who told us how happy she was...

Had a very comfortable stay. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant closed for renovation but there was a complimentary continental breakfast in lieu of that during our stay. Brand-new, well-stocked c-store across the street. Our room was spotless, shower had good water pressure. Would stay here again.

Room was great. Very nice size. Good TV. Free wifi. Very nice staff. Restaurant was great for breakfast. Carbondale is an old town with a fine university. No local commercial airport, so you have to drive from St. Louis.

We frequently stay here and it is about the nicest in the area. Everyone here is so nice. There were a couple of issues though this time. We noticed dishes piling up in the hall.
