I have stayed at the Best Western Saluki Inn many times in the last three years. The staff is friendly and warm and professional. The rooms are clean and well appointed. I would also add the breakfast is one of the best I have enjoyed. The internet is good and the hotel is in a good location. I will return...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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.

The staff and facilities were very nice. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good and we enjoyed the bar/lounge. The bartender was so much fun and friendly. She gave drink suggestions and information about upcoming events.

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.
