After moving our son into apartment we stayed here for the night. stayed here in the past was a very sketchy place. Just the opposite this time. Very clean with a very friendly and helpful staff. This place has come a long ways for the better

I really enjoy staying at the Saluki Inn. Everything is up to date and well done. It has a closer to campus location than the other competition and runs about $40-50 less than well known national chains locally. Staff very nice....good value.

Rooms are updated and clean. Microwave and refrigerator are nice benefit. Manager and staff are excellent. Breakfast is okay, could use an upgrade of oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs, more fresh fruit than just apples or other healthy options. Booked room a few days before our stay, so prices were not great, but looking ahead and booking early, prices are much better.... More

Decent rooms, great beds, pool, and very competent and friendly staff. Good value when booking through office.com or using special rates (i.e., AAA, etc.). You need to drive to any decent restaurants, but all styles are close by on the "strip" or in downtown Carbondale.

My stay was pleasant and quiet. We brought our Llhapso Apso with us and he enjoyed the stay too. Yes, Best Western allows pets. Go figure! Best Western put us on the 1st floor which was fine because that made walking the dog easier for us. Best Western also gave coutesy poop bags for your dog just in case you... More

I just stayed at Best Western this last weekend when I was moving my son to college. It is located in a great location with Walmart, restaurants etc. all right there. We had a great room, it was clean, staff was great and they had one of the best hot breakfasts that I have had at a hotel. I will... More

I stayed one night in August and I had to turn the termperature to 60 degrees and the fan on constant high to get it to stay cool. The location is great and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

We have stayed here several times and the quality of the hotel is great for the price. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The workout room is small but clean. The breakfast is simple but nice.

Good value for the cost with breakfast, internet & nice rooms. Great service as the staff was very helpful, even going out of their way once by searching for a Coca Cola as the soda machines were out. Breakfast bar had quite the variety for my picky eaters. Toaster was a little slow so maybe a 2nd for use would... More

The hotel is a perfectly okay hotel sandwiched between a Pier 1 Imports and Kohl's on what appears to be Carbondale's main drag. Local attractions are the 24 hour Walmart and 24 hour Kroger's. There;s also a university mall and a movie theater nearby. The room was fairly spacious, a little dated but basically clean and serviceable. The swimming pool... More
