Very comfortable hotel. We checked in late and the front desk person was very nice and alert at that time of day. He even got our 2 rooms close together on the same floor. The breakfast was very good. They had a great assortment of hot and cold choices and everything was very fresh. I just wish the breakfast would... More

Very clean and friendly staff. The only problem I encountered was the tv remote did not control the the tv. They did offer to change my room but I was just too tired to pack my stuff to move. The front desk clerk was very nice and tried to reprogram the remote.

The staff was very friendly and the building was in very good condition. The only minor complaints I had was lighting in the room was a bit on the low end of my expectations and the walls in the bathroom were a little dirty. But again, these were minor things and overall I highly recommend this hotel, especially for its... More

The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant. The bed was very comfortable and there were lots of towels. The location was ideal, as you the hotel is strategically located to several other places, such as restaurants, high way etc.

Visited Carbondale, Illinois for a Southern Illinois University Saluki basketball game and had a great experience. The Saluki Inn was very comfortable. Had a great meal at the Hunan Restaurant on West Main St. Saw an exciting Saluki come from behind win over Illinois State University

A spotless room, well appointed and comfortable. Our greeting upon arrival was warm and gave the impression that the staff cared that we were their guests. We had a few questions and also asked recommendations for local food. At no time did the staff treat us like we were interrupting their evening. All this while they were managing the checkin...

Clean. Friendly staff. Nicely updated. Good clean pool and workout area. Beds were a little hard, but room was nice. Close to Southern Illinois University. Far less money than Hampton, but almost comparable. For the money, a good place to stay.

Had to come from Clarksvill, Tn to relax before my State board and found this hotel to be close by and to have what I needed for a night before my big exam. The desk clerk was pleasant and the room was nice and very cofortable. I would visit them again. Thanks Best Western Saluki Inn!
