The new owners are working hard at renovating this Inn and it shows! Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. It had a mini frig ( complete with complimentary water bottles) & microwave. They also offer a continental breakfast to guests! Absolutely a great value!!!

A PLEASANT SURPRISE Lowest price in the area so I was not expecting much especially with all the bad reviews...BUT, soon realized this place is under new ownership since early 2014 and has been completely remodeled. My quiet room was very clean with cold a/c, comfortable beds, pillows and furniture with plenty of drawers. Bathroom and shower was clean with... More

This place is absolutely freaking disgusting. My in-laws, husband, and I stayed here trying to get away since there was bad weather. First of all, the room keys didn't even work. We had to try different room multiple times. My in-laws first key was the same as someone else's. Then when we finally got a room the bed wasn't made,... More

The next room was warm however when I decided to take a shower, after letting the water run for 10 minutes I realized there was NO HOT WATER!!! My husband... More

Only place left for family weekend for SIU in Carbondale. Here you go... dingy, creepy place! Our room had no working air (so you could enjoy the stale smell of who knows what) no toilet paper, 1/2 the lights had no light bulbs!, the "window treatment" was literally torn off (I had to rig it so it stayed up) the...

We had made reservations at the America's Best Value motel in Carbondale for Parent's weekend. That property was not much better than the worst motel in the area. They had given our non-smoking room away, so the desk clerk called the Campus Inn to see if there were any rooms open there. They were wide open for a reason. You... More

Only cheaper place in town is the campground. Housekeeper checks up on you if you stay for the week. It's not fancy, it's run down, and it's not as clean as other hotels. But, if you're looking for a place to sleep at night that costs about half as much as most of the other hotels in town, look no... More

We started out not finding a hotel for family weekend in Carbondale, This was the only hotel that was available for that weekend. So we searched it out and saw that the reviews were terrible. We called the hotel and they stated that they were under new management and had been remodeled so we booked a room. Upon arriving the... More

My daughter and I went to go visit SIUC for open house. On the website it showed good deals and the pics showed a nice place. We got reservations for one night, any longer and we would have had to switch motels. The place was a dump. The bedding had cigarette holes in them and smelled. There wasn't even fitted... More
