We were in Carbondale to hike in the LaRue-Pine Hills Research area. The BW met and exceeded our expectations, the staff was friendly, and helpful, the breakfasts were very nice, Room was great. I felt the staff went the extra mile on several occasions. I would recommend this to any of my friends who visit that area.

Stayed while my husband and I brought our grand daughter but to college. It was a nice stay but the pool want warm and when you also have a 3 year old with you, guess what she wants to do? Yep, swim so we did and it was freezing:( Other than that the stay was good.

Hotel is really a motel as it has no restaurant on premise. Quiet for a corner location east part of town. Simple and easy no luxury offerings here but new manager so property will be cleaner and more responsive!

I came to stay while I moved my daughter out of college. Very close to all kinds of eating places. Close to Walmart. Easy to find. Very clean rooms and very comfortable. Staff was always engaging in conversation with guests. Very comfortable, down to earth atmosphere.

Great Value compared to other hotels in area. Very clean, staff goes out of their way to make your stay a good one. This hotel is on my list of the best in Carbondale. When coming to Carbondale for Southern Illinois University. Please pick this hotel.

It's a very nice hotel that is very conveniently located near the campus. You are in the heart of an area with tons of restaurants and shopping. The room was clean and the staff was really nice and accommodating. I would stay there again.

This hotel is a wondeful place to stay if you are dropping off your student at SIU, visiting for the week end or picking up your student! We always have a clean, fresh room. LOVE the clean remote and water saving faucets. The breakfast is always hot and delicious. COFFEE is available all of the time, which is cool. FREE... More

Very friendly staff and conveniently located to restaurants, mall, and Giant City State Park. That is all I have to say but TripAdvisor won't let me just say that. It says I don't have enough words. The hotel was great but, I will not be using TripAdvisor again!

Very Nice Stay, we were working in Grand Tower Illinois. After a hard day at work its was nice to arrive at the hotel and be greeted by pleasant staff. Breakfast was just what we needed to get off to a good start. Bed was comfortable, water was warm enough, TV options were great and USB in back of television... More

Nicely appointed newer rooms but poor maintenance and construction: Broken window. Windows did little to keep out road noise. Easy to hear people walking around in room above. Rug pad poorly installed so floor surface uneven. Dim lighting.
