Nice accommodations, friendly staff, family oriented although I was a single traveler. Walking distance to mall and fast food chains. Didn't make it to breakfast but it was available. If you travel to Carbondale, this is a good location to get to downtown and the college without feeling like you are in the outskirts of town for a good price.

I was pleased with the look of the hotel but after settling in to a hotel of which I reserved in advance, to a room that was swarmed with ants I obviously was disappointed. We checked in late in the evening after a 6 hour drive unpacked and was clearly exhausted. I did my normal check, grabbed a bite with... More

This is my second stay at this motel. I was pleased that the superior quality of the accomodations and friendly and helpful staff still existed. The room and bed were comfortable, the breakfast varied and fresh. Would recommend to anyone!

This hotel is a great value, I would (and will) stay there again if my son attends Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. The staff, room and breakfast were ideal. A tad noisy on the first floor.

I stayed here for my daughter's freshman orientation for SIU. The hotel was very clean, close to campus and right next to starbucks!! I plan to stay here every time I visit. The staff was welcoming and helpful! The breakfast had a great variety! The showers were powerful and the beds made me feel like I was home! Loved it!

The hotel was good in every regard except for the air conditioning. It was not working properly and we had to change rooms. Exceptionally clean hotel, and the staff is friendly and very eager to help. I would have rated the hotel better if the A/C worked properly.

The room was fantastic! They were very clean and they smelled fresh. The rooms were not dated. They were very nice looking. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was fine, but there was no hot tub. That was the worst part. I almost forgot the showers were amazing the pressure was fantastic and there was many different... More

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and large and the breakfast is good. I have not tried to book a room here during a graduation, athletic weekend, or other university event so I cant speak for the pricing or efficiency at those times but we have been here on weekends and weeknights and it...

everything was great but the room smelled like smoke a little. The staff was nice. The breakfast was very good, lots of food. They do allow pets. They put you in the back of the hotel if you have a dog. There's a big field out there for the dog to sniff around in

Our room seemed a little on the smallish side. Bed was not very comfortable. Air conditioning unit was noisy and couldn't maintain a consistent temperature. Swimming pool was decent but water was very warm - about like bathwater. Breakfast was usual hotel complimentary breakfast, quality was subpar. The bright spot was that staff were friendly and accommodating. Our request for... More
