Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The rooms were clean, but housekeeping skipped making my bed one of the days but made the other bed in the room-weird. The workout room was clean (two treadmills). The wifi kept signing me out. There was no breakfast at the hotel but a golden corral in the same parking lot and Denny's... More

I spent a night here with my wife. I had reserved a basic king room but was greeted with a free upgrade to a huge whirlpool room. Everything about this hotel was top notch from the friendly desk staff to the clean, comfortable, well-appointed room. I highly recommend it!

The hotel was clean, the lobby was inviting. The room was clean and comfortable. I stayed in a single King room. There was no bathtub, just a nice stand-up shower with a sliding glass door. The cable TV reception was perfect, but the WiFi reception was poor. There is no free breakfast buffet. If you want breakfast, you get vouchers... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Carbondale for a wedding. It was exactly what you would expect. Comfortable room, friendly staff, coffee. I didn't use any of the other services, so I can't rate them. The one issue I will say is with cleaning of the room. I had gotten up around 11AM, and found a note that said... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were here for a week and would definitely stay here again when in Carbondale.

We stayed here overnight to attend orientation with our son. We had reserved two rooms, non-smoking with King beds. Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly and promptly checked-in. I am in Carbondale several times a year and this was the most efficient check-in I had ever experienced. Our rooms were not adjoining, but right next door which was perfect.... More

Overall, a clean hotel with comfy beds, just not the 4 and 5 star hotels that I am used to staying in. Staff was friendly, bathrooms have been updated. My room had a funky smell to it though...
