We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights.The room was large, clean and comfortable. There was a microwave and a fridge in the room as well. The only problem we had was the breakfast time. When I booked the room I read that the breakfast was served from 5am and that suited us well, because we would get up early....

Do NOT make a reservation here or plan to stay here!!!! This is a terrible hotel and we refused to stay here after we arrived. Here's a few observations from 5 minutes after pulling in the parking lot. The lobby smelled of smoke because the lobby door was open and attached to a low-life bar; the parking lot was filled...

We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your short period of time with us. There is a local bar/liquor store attached and located at the front of the lobby, which is also the only entrance to the bar. All of the guest rooms are in separate buildings behind the lobby with separate parking. We do have a...

Marion motel 4/10/17 My 11 hr trip from Jackson MS to Lafayette IN started late so had to crash en route - Marion IL. Ended up at this place next door to the Econolodge. Didn't realize until after I was registered I was so tired. Price $58. Looked like some people lived there. Not the greatest - slow sink drain,...

Thank you for your review. We apologize you were not completely satisfied with your room. We do have guests who travel for work such as with coal mines or construction and they do stay for weeks/months at a time while they are in the area for their job duties.

I booked a room for 2 nights and left after the first night. The room was disgusting. Dirty fake hard wood floors, bed was a pain machine, dirty fridge, fuzzy tv reception, and dirty bathroom. Not to mention worse of all the wifi did not work! They say they have laundry service but only had a dryer. The one and...

Thank you for your review. However, we did not receive any complaints at the front desk regarding any of these matters. Yes our ice machine in the lobby is currently out of order, but we do have a cooler (that is clean) behind the front desk to still be able to supply our guests with ice. Also, the washers in...

We apologize you did not fully enjoy your stay. However, most/all of our rooms have been slowly undergoing remodeling to update said rooms. As I am sure you are aware, remodeling and maintenance to do such work takes some time. We appreciate your time and feedback!

I was visiting my son at SIU for the weekend and initially booked the room for 2 nights. I read the reviews previous to booking and figured it wouldn't be that bad. Wrong..I am not high maintenance when it comes to hotels at all. I am there to sleep and shower, however I do expect the place to be clean...

I don't know where the reviews come from on this location but it was horrible. We had 18 roaches in our room, yes, I counted them! The walls were painted over to cover up black mold it looked like. The woodwork was dirty. There was spatter of what look like old blood on the ceiling. The sheets and bedding was...

All hotels were booked for graduation, this was only availability. We arrived, were given our key which took about 10 swipes before it opened the door.
