Was up for my daughter's graduation and figured a chain hotel is a chain hotel, so why not? Wull, I'll tell you why not. Arriving at night, the crack-house-like exterior is frightening, holes, cracked and missing paint, just every affliction a building can suffer. Our 2nd floor room had been redone and was fine, however, there was no hot water... More

This hotel is clean, with WiFi, fridge, microwave and cable. Banks, restaurants, and the grocery store are just a skip away. This is my last night of 4, and I had no problems getting a good nights rest without any loud noise or disturbances from outside. The price is good, and the front desk staff was very nice.

My family travelled to Carbondale, IL, in April 2015, and chose to stay at the Econolodge for its convenient location and reasonable rate. We were very pleased with out stay. The rooms are not fancy, but very clean and nice and comfortable. Great flat screen TV and cable channel selection (we always like that). This is a pet friendly hotel,... More

The hotel room is horrible. It has a rusted microwave, soiled mattresses, broken dresser, remote doesn't work, holes in blanket and bedspread in both beds, and bathroom not good. This is the worst motel room we've ever stayed in!!!! Unfortunately, my husband choose this hotel because all hotels were booked since January.

Just stayed here overnight for the state science fair at the beginning of May. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the rooms definitely need updating. The bed itself seems relatively new and very comfortable - I slept great. However, whole the ceiling looked recently redone, the walls were definitely in need of work. The walls were bare, with...

Our room was large, clean and functional except for a burnt out light bulb. It had a fridge, a microwave and a 37' flat screen TV. The desk had 2 outlets for charging your electronics. The internet speed varied greatly for download from 1.20 to 9.0 Mbps depending on how many people were on. During peak usage, we could not... More

Gross. The rooms were not clean. The bathroom floor looked like someone washed it and then walked over it with dirty shoes. The sheets were full of yellow stains and the blanket had a dried white spot on it. I felt disgusting trying to sleep on that bed. The toiletries were so minimal. Check in took FOREVER. I had to...

Just this past weekend I came to Carbondale for a concert and tried to get a hotel room, but most all rooms were all sold out. I was very leery going to the Econo Lodge due to the look of the place and how outdated everything appeared to be. I went in to ask about a room for the night... More
