My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and when we got there, the lady at the front was more then helpful in getting all of our paperwork done and our room keys to us. We got to the room and found a very clean and fresh smelling area. It had everything that we would need for... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times before as we frequently race at I-57 dragstrip just outside of Benton, most recently we stayed here last Friday and Saturday nights (July 25 &26). After checking in, we went to our room and opened the door to a horrible musty smell and a very warm room. We figured we could live with... More

I was very impressed with this hotel. Looks like they have done some remodeling. My bed was nice and comfortable. The bedding was excellent quality! Room was clean and front desk was friendly. I will definitely stay there on my next visit to Benton!

We went into room, looked around it for about 5 minutes and then checked out. It was extremely outdated and I mean by several decades. The bathroom was dirty or at least appeared dirty because of age of everything in it. I just couldn't do it. Everything about the room appeared questionable to me. The paint seemed slopped on walls.... More

Dark hallways. I'm sure because it was dirty. Room, had the basic. Carpet dirty. We were home for a funeral. If we hadn't been so very tired and upset we wouldn't have stayed the night. We went to West Frankfort for the next 3 nights we were home. Our home town and we couldn't find find a decent motel.

I travel to Benton quite frequently for my job and this hotel is one of my favorite places to stay. It is a very quiet atmosphere and the rooms are really cozy and comfortable. I also enjoy the restaraunt that is next to hotel. Really nice place to stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in August 2012. Although I'm positive it was a different name at the time. Not sure if there are new owners or not, but when we were there the stay was terrible. There was no pool and no breakfast at this hotel. You had to walk to the hotel next door to use... More

I have a 4 mon old baby and they put us in a room where there was obvious water damage in the corner of the room. The carpet felt soggy like it had been damp as well. There was a layer of dust on the lamp shades and tv. The bathroom had mold in the tub and the tile floor... More

Located in a shady part of town. To help you feel safer, police round the area every hour. There was old sealer on walls and around tub. Tub and sink are stained and dirty at edges. Carpeting is ripped and stained. Wallpaper is torn, poorly patched and peeling off the walls. Windows do not open. Water pressure is poor in... More
