We stopped here on our way back home. Very convenient off the interstate. Clean and comfortable. My only complaint...there is no cream for coffee after the breakfast hours. All the other Holiday Inn Express hotel we have stayed in, leave the cream, etc out for the guests convenience as it doesn't need refrigeration. Didn't discover this until after I had... More

Very clean room and comfortable bed. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great breakfast and allows pets which we needed! All around A+! Would definitely stay here again if passing through. Conveniently right off 57 North.

From check in to departure the staff created a very nice atmosphere. They really do want you to enjoy your stay in the area. Easy access and parking, walk to restaurants. Visit our new friends at Black Diamond they have a lot of events and know the region well

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Marion just off the interstate for SIU graduation weekend. The place was fully booked but it didn't seem crowded. The family enjoyed the in house breakfast bar and we used the lobby for a late night "pizza party". The location was convenient for SIU even though it was a 10 minute drive to... More

We stayed here 2 nights for my daughter's graduation. It's a new hotel. Beautifully decorated. The hot breakfast was actually really good. The only down side was the walls are thin. The guy next to us slept with the TV on.

The brilliant rose bushes along the front and sides of this Holiday Inn are a colorful treat. Yes, the landscaping does not make a hotel, but in this case the outside does reflect what’s inside. From the two kinds of homemade cookies guests can choose from when they register to the two-person staff during evening hours that offer prompt, friendly... More

This was one of the best ran hotels I have ever stayed and of all places....Marion, Illinois. The staff were the friendliest of any place I have stayed and the hotel was spotless. Kudos to these folks for taking pride in their establishment.

Holiday Inn does it again! I have never been let down by a Holiday Inn and it continues with this. I was down there for my sister's graduation from SIUC and this hotel was closest to Carbondale.

I wish TripAdvisor allowed us to rate by 1/2 notches as this is really a 4.5 hotel. The only detractors for us was the sense of limited soundproofing, the somewhat bland breakfast, the small exercise room and pool, a lack of an outside the bathroom sink, and a crowded lobby. The rooms themselves are well appointed and look new, and... More
