Excellent stay, Staff went above and beyond to accommodate the team, including coming in early, to prepare breakfast for our team. Also they allowed us to use breakfast area to eat pizza, after playing a late night game. Hotel is highly recommended.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel several different times when in Carbondale for wrestling tournaments. I do believe every time we have stayed we have been on the bottom floor. This time we were on the top floor. For the most part the room was good. The bathroom had some cracked floor tiles that shifted when you...

The desk attendant was pleasant. Unfortunately this Best Western hotel has many miles on it. The room we had was stall and felt unclean. The bed linens were old, worn and had an unclean odor. The general halls, stair wells and lobby seem to require a robust, solid cleaning. Yes, the rate per night was better than the local competition,...

The rooms are just the right size, cozy but spacious enough. There's a microwave and iron in the room. Laundry facilities available. Walmart and other shops are within 5 minute walking distance. Southern Illinois University is about a ten minute drive and Amtrak's about 15-20 depending on the time of day if you're planning to catch the train. Breakfast is...

The outside of this hotel is nondescript. Where I parked I almost stepped into a puddle of vomit. So I was a bit worried HOWEVER The location is great. Inside the hotel it is clean with a Nidern feel and pleasant ambience. The staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. My room was clean and spacious and tastefully decorated. The bed...

I'm doing a solo cross-country roadtrip as part of a move. I only booked the room 2 hours before showing up. The staff was very friendly, accomodating, and the room was clean. Can't ask for more out of a one night stay.

This property was a pleasant surprise. I read the TripAdvisor reviews and thought I would give this place a shot. My usual picks in Carbondale are the Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn and this hotel compares favorably with them at a price about 30% cheaper. Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn usually run $120 and this property runs in the $80s....

The people from the front desk to Bar staff were very kind. Not fake, genuine. New bar is not what you would expect in a Best Western. Mini casino, drink specials, kind bartender made our night .He was hilarious but also very professional. The hotels in this area are way below their standards and amenities.
