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 I was very leery going to the Econo Lodge due to the look of the place and how outdated everything appeared to be.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

My son and I were here for a baseball tournament at SIU. Do Not stay here. It's a bad sign when you see police cars sitting at the corner of the street on both sides of the hotel and police freqeuntly driving around the parking lot. The entire place is just disgusting and I'm usually not that picky, it takes... More

This hotel is rated 3 1/2 stars on the Choice Hotels website, but I would give it less than a star. The bathroom and sink vanity area floor was sticky and dirty, the tub was dirty, the armchair upholstery was torn and worn, the bed skirt was torn and hanging down too low causing one to trip. The furniture was... More

The hotel provided a clean and quiet room, comfortable bed, friendly personnel, and a nice and much appreciated work table. Nothing fancy. The refrigerator was also nice to have. I do wish there had been a radio and facial tissues.

This hotel is the absolute worst pig sty of a place you'll ever see and the management are a bunch of crooks. The first room they tried to give us was full of black mold and wall paper was falling off the walls. The second room they tried to give us had splatters of blood on the wall and comforter.... More
