We stayed here while visiting SIU campus. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and since I was traveling alone with my daughters, we felt safe. We had no problem with internet access, and all of us were on devises at the same time. Also, the water was hot for all of our showers, and with 2 teenage girls using the... More

The people at the front desk greeted us warmly and had good recommendations for us for dinner. We had an upgraded room on the second floor. Great location, clean, and comfortable. Would stay there again.

We always enjoy staying at the Saluki Inn in Carbondale. The staff is friendly, helpful and kind. The cleanliness of the hotel is superb. I really like the fact that they use "green" methods for their operation.

Hotel was newly remodeled and clean. Room and amenities very nice. Internet a little slow, but not really an issue. Staff friendly and helpful. Great free full hot breakfast. Would definitely return to this hotel when in the area.

It's a busy and broad intersection so I wouldn't recommend walking over but you could if you had to. There are several restaurants on the same side of the street such... More

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The building is aging and some repairs are needed. For example, the bathroom door was binding and would not close. Very friendly and helpful staff. Standard breakfast, but skip the eggs.. Great rates.
