The hotel was very nice and still had a new feel to it. The lobby was a welcome relief from the heat outside and that staff was very helpful. Conveniently located close to I-57, it was relatively quick to get in and out of. Great experience overall!

This hotel was clean and comfortable, easily accessible from the interstate, quiet, friendly, had a good breakfast. Close to gas stations and restaurants. Everything one could want when on the road. We will stay there again when going that way.

Stayed in room 103 near the pool. The room had a mold, and/or, mildew smell. No I didn't report it. The smell was so prevalent, (even in the hallway), I assume the management knew. Also, even though the motel is right off the interstate, you must navigate a maze of other hotels and businesses to get to it. I'll pass...

This hotel was one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the Marion/Carbondale but with good reviews so my wife and I decided to give it a shot and I'm glad we did. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the room was clean. It's not a fancy hotel (standard chain hotel fare) but seems to be well maintained....

A relatively new motel, clean, quiet, right off the highway. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and the staff efficient and friendly. Not much to do in Marion, nor many good places to eat, but Carbondale is a mere 20 miles away and there are many more restaurants there. If you're on your way form one pace to another,...

This was a great rest spot from traveling. Easy location to find, right of interstate. Warm greeting at check in, clean area. Nice Rooms, pool and fitness areas. Full breakfast was nice. The 20"s Hideout Steak House within walking distance to this Hotel was great.

Stopped here on a drive to Memphis, TN from Chicago for one night. We called in advance since we were looking for a hotel with smoking rooms. This hotel seemed to be the only one in the area offering smoking rooms. However, we were told there were no smoking rooms available with 2 queen beds; only one with a king....

My Daughter and I stayed for 9 days. We were very happy with the accommodations. The breakfast offered was yummy. The House Keeping staff was excellent. The check in and out staff very pleasant. Over all if there was a higher rating of 10 I would give them a 20.

The roll away bad/bed slept very badly. The mattress was dipping in the middle. Had a had getting out of it to go use restroom at night. The room smelled of cigarettes as soon as we entered the room. We had to get air fresher to spray in the room before sleeping/showering. The hotel key didn't work the next day....
