Not very welcoming greeting when we got there. Our room had a very strong herbal sort of smell. The bedding looked like it was left wet in a dryer and slapped on in a hurry. Even the shower curtain was wrinkled. Also, the room wasnt overly clean, there was something slimy on the bathroom counter, a short hair and crud... More

I was impressed by how hard the staff worked to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The hotel is comfortable and clean. There were many little touches that made is a step up from most other Holiday Inns. The only real downside is that there is not much in walking distance from the hotel.

The check-in process was very easy. The even let us check in a bit early. The attendant was very friendly and greeted us with a smile. The common areas were very clean and updated.

This hotel is a fantastic place to stay when in Carbondale. It has a great restaurant/bar (Fat Bottom Betty's). Ask for the free breakfast vouchers. The pool is very nice, as is the business center. Free wireless. And only about 4 mi. to the university, and near major shopping/restaurants. Definitely the classiest place to stay in that area--we even had... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The decor was out dated. The restaurant attached to the hotel was passable. We went for breakfast both mornings. The first day we chose the buffet...not the best choice. The next day we ordered off the menu and the food was much better. We stayed at this hotel many years ago and I remember... More

Electric went out around 3pm to no fault of the hotel. But it was extremely hot and by 10pm, we only had partial electric. No air, no frig, no elevator (I'm disabled). It was a long, miserable night. I went to checkout at 630am because I couldn't stand the heat any longer. Not only did they NOT offer a discount... More

Typical Holiday Inn located close to everything. Front desk staff is always friendly. Fat Bottom Bettys restaurant is hit or miss. Was upgraded to a king study suite as I am a platinum ihg rewards member. Little disappointed this time as the ice bucket had mold and there was a cigarette burn on the desk chair.

This hotel served its purpose. The rooms were clean and the hotel was generally quiet. I appreciated that they recognized my IHG elite status and provided me with a coupon for breakfast at the in-hotel restaurant. The hotel is conveniently located off the highway and there's ample parking out front. I would stay here again if in Carbondale.
