Bloomington, Illinois
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This hotel is near the SIU campus, shopping mall, and many restaurants. There is a bar & grill attached to the hotel called Manny's that was fun and food was good too! Our room was clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was very good and fresh. I would definitely stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

I had great experiences here & one mishap. I was able to handle it with the manager & was satisfied with the outcome. Since my last visit, they finished the attached bar/grill. A nice addition for travelers to unwind and grab a bite to eat. Still very clean, with friendly staff. Only dislike is the pillows.

Close to the park and also shopping. Great staff and delicious breakfast. We were allowed to bring our pet yet the place was so clean you would not have known pets had been in the building. The pool was slightly small, yet perfect for our beginner swimmer.

I made arrangements for my pet and Emily was very accommodating. She brought me a blanket for Skye to sleep on. Having the bar and grill attached was a plus. Leslie was a very personable bartender who took good care of us.

Everything was nice. Friendly staff, clean room and reasonable price. Breakfast was adequate as far as quantity but below average as far as quality. Coffee was very light and the omelette and the muffins lacked taste.

It had a good breakfast and the rooms were nice. Friendly staff. Had a family suite which fit us all very comfortably which is incredibly hard to do. And the rate even though we booked on site was incredibly reasonable.

Clean and secure for a reasonable price. Breakfast was ok. Saved me from having to run through a fast food place and spend $5. Walls, ceilings/floors must be a bit thin. Got noise from next door as well as room above us. There was a good sized indoor pool, an on-site bar, and a small workout room. If booking based...

We only stayed one night, but we were pleased to find that the previous reviews we read before booking were correct; i.e. very friendly staff, exceptionally clean room and no problems (well, other than feebly-flowing water from the sink faucet). I would highly recommend this BW to anyone needing a place to stay in Carbondale IL.

The staff here is wonderful. The hotel, on the other hand, not so much. Super thin walls makes for a pretty noisy night sleep. There was a major plumbing problem while I was there so some rooms were unavailable. I was unable to take a bath because the drain did not work-not that I would have wanted to, because it...
