I called to reserve a room for Jul 3 and Jul 4. Why is it 89.00 per night for 1 adult and 1 child? ? Ridiculously high and not at all worth it. I have stayed there before so I know it should be that high. Holiday or not! Rip off! !!

People who deduct stars for infrastructure must not comprehend the concept of family-owned 1-star motels. They don't have the backing of a franchise, and they make up for that loss of financial backing in other ways. No exception here. The owner was very nice and up-front. No bait-and-switch: took me to the room to inspect before charging my card. Room... More

We stayed here for one night recently, and it just was not quite all that. I will say that the staff were very nice. And it was apparent that effort had gone into cleaning the room. The linens and towels were clean. However the infrastructure is just really sadly lacking. The bed was in need of replacement, there were places... More

A nice clean old fashioned motor motel close to everything. Very safe environment and great location on west side of downtown....great grassy area in back with picnic table and grille and rabbits who live on premises....just a treat in old time hospitality. Yes, we will be back on next visit to SIU.

We stayed last night at The Heritage Motel. The Heritage is like a step back in time, complete with an actual key on a key chain! The owner was more than accommodating and very friendly. He even ground coffee for us and sent over a little goody bag of different teas and microwave popcorn. The bed was comfy (but we'll... More

Pretty much as advertised, independently run small motel, good price, clean, and friendly owner. Stayed here one night. Its not going to be the standard of the hotels that cost more than twice as much but in its price range certainly a better bet than some generic chain which are the other options in town at this price point.

This motel is nasty. Bugs, spiders, roaches all the trimmings. There was a huge bloodstain on the mattress plus a hairball, earring, and little black things either mouse droppings or bed bugs? We moved the lamp and it was very obvious the carpet was badly stained and discolored. Spider webs hung from the ceiling and a roach in the fridge.... More

Old fashioned motor court, clean rooms, kitchenette, park at your door, and so close to everything, where you can walk to. Came in on Amtrak, so easy to go to. Friendly people in charge. We would go there on our next trip to university.

Clean, comfortable and inexpensive. The owner is very nice and accomodating. This is an older property so if you require a pool, exercise room, etc you will need to look elsewhere. On the other hand if what you want is a place to stay in Carbondale at a reasonable place this is a good choice.
