I spent two nights at the Holiday Inn in Carbondale this week. The room was fine and the location is just outside the main part of town and SIU. I stayed at the old Holiday Inn Carbondale 23 years earlier, and while the location of this one is a bit farther away, this hotel is much nicer. The cost is...

Hotel staff was willing to do what they needed to in order to take care of my situation in my original room. They bent over backwards to make sure I was happy with my new room. I was told I would receive 1 free night and when I checked out this morning, I didn't receive the credit but I didn't...

We stay here frequently and each time is fantastic. We are still amazed at how welcoming the staff is and how clean our room is every time. This hotel sets the standard that other hotels should strive to meet. For anyone staying in Southern Illinois, the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Carbondale is the best choice by far!

We stayed at this hotel on 9/25-9/26 for SIU Family Weekend. Hotel was super clean and very well maintained. Staff was courteous. Only downside is no free breakfast. There is a restaurant attached and the hotel does provide discounts off of the breakfast. I will definitely stay here again.

This Carbondale IL Holiday Inn was very new and modern looking. Set back from the road it was very quiet. The lobby was spacious and tastefully decorated. Little to no wait time for the elevator.
