We were moving from Georgia to Wisconsin. It is roughly a 14 drive. Marion was about half way. Great service by the staff, excellent room, very clean and awesome breakfast. The best part is that this hotel is pet friendly. It was only an extra $25 per night, not per pet. We had 2 dogs. I would highly recommend this...

First off, the room was very nice, clean & spacious and the staff was friendly! That's why I'm giving 3 stars. :-) My main disappointments may be minor to some, but for me, the 'little things' matter: 1. The wifi was down. We were told some construction workers cut the line, "but we have FREE breakfast tomorrow!" (Don't you always...

Amy H, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the comfort of the room, however, I do apologize for the inconveniences during your stay. Due to all of the new businesses coming to The Hill in Marion, one of the construction sites hit the fiber internet line for the entire Hill area. Hotels, restaurants, and homes were out of...

Hotel is average, bathroom door kept closing on us, milk at breakfast frozen. Bed fairly hard compared to other hotels in the area. Good location, close to highway and restaurants. Walking distance to Miners ballpark.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Marion Illinois on April 7th. Two nights after we checked out, I noticed a $250 charge on my credit card, in addition to the $87.47 fee for the room. I called, was told that it was a smoking charge, and that I needed to talk to Jeremy the manager on duty about it....

Last week we spent a night at this location while traveling home from MS. The hotel was very nice, clean, roomy along with a very adequate breakfast before leaving the next morning. All staff members were attentive and very hospitable. I'd definitely recommend this location while traveling.

We selected the Holiday Inn Express in Marion along our route, It was very nice, clean well kept, friendly, great breakfast will stay here again on our next trip through Illinois. We always select an upper floor so it is quiet and this clearly was.

Stayed here while passing through town. Room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. It is also located next to 17th Street barbecue which is a plus. Would recommend staying here to anyone passing through.

We have stayed here many times over the years. Great location for us when visiting family in So IL but I have to say I see the beginnings of age. Everything was fine and clean but it is starting to get a bit worn. Understandable because of use and age but disappointing that it is not the new sparkling place...
