I was told by people who stay in Du Quion often that this is the best hotel in town. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable enough. I paid the same price for a much nicer hotel in Chattanooga the next night, but there is more competition there.

With in the first 30 mins of our stay we have to kill mice! Took it up to the desk the manager took it threw it away & laughed historically & said we are NOT getting our $$ back! Don't care if its a yearly event at the fair grounds I will pay the higher $$ for a different hotel!... More

Listen, this is not a five star hotel....but for a mid-western town with a pop of 6600 people, it's not a Lowes hotel or W, nor does it offer room or bottle service...lol....but, it has the essentials, it was clean and comfortable. Honestly, if you know anything about DuQuoin there's not much to the town. But, this hotel serves it... More

This was a mediocre 2 star hotel. The walls were extremely thin and conversations in others rooms could easily be heard. They allow pets and had a dog barking a few rooms away. Also, the previous comments about the Wifi are valid. We had no wifi the entire weekend. When I called to ask about it, I was told that... More

The Fairgrounds Inn was a very nice place to stay. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. We stayed there 10/26/2013 and the pool was open and clean. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this motel to anyone staying in this area.

If you ever have a chance to stay at this hotel... pass. The room was very dirty and outdated. We actually had bugs in our room. When I asked about internet access I was told that no one knows how to get on the wifi so we don't give out the information. The bed was terrible at best and the... More
