I booked 2 rooms for the James Dean Car Show at end of September. The hotel name has changed from Boarders Inn to Hotel Marion. The rooms were clean but the whole Hotel smelled of cigarette smoke. We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel, basically just to sleep so it was ok. The staff was very... More

Spent 2 nights there as no other rooms to be found. Reservations were made earlier in the year for James Dean car show. Very busy weekend. Photoes shown on internet were not actual motel photos. Hallways were dark and dingy,elevators were shakey and rattled. Rooms were in need of cleaner carpets. Restaurant and lobby were best part of the stay.... More

We booked several rooms for a one night stay. Problem one - we booked non-smoking and the rooms we were given smelled of ashtray. The front desk decided this problem could be solved by giving us a bottle of air freshener. Wow. Thanks. Problem two - my in-laws check in to their room and find the bed unmade and dirty... More

I stayed here only because I was in town for a funeral and this hotel was next door to the funeral home. It was s servicable option for a one night non-vacation stay. The room was clean and shampoo and conditioner tolietries were provided along with the soap. The fold out bed was the "bar in the back" variety but... More

Reading the reviews here I was very, very concerned that my Hotwire purchase turned out to be Hotel Marion, a place I'd never heard of. I wound up phoning Hotwire and emailing them these reviews. They assured me it the hotel was unclean or unsafe they would relocate me. What I found was an older hotel. Yes, there was a... More

When I first walked in the smell of the hotel was disgusting. It smelled old and gross. When walking to our room it was like scary, it was like walking down a dark alley. When entering the room it was scary. There were a few lights that didn't work, the window didn't lock so we were afraid of getting stolen,... More

New, guest room drapes in a buttercup yellow are arriving by May 21, 2013. All guest room windows have a latch to open and close. This latch when secured properly, prohibits entrance into the guest room from the outside. We value our guests and provide a safe environment to rest and relax. Just an example; North, South and East entrances... More

I loved my stay at Hotel Marion! It was the best birthday celebration ever! The staff worked worked with my fiancé to make sure I was completely surprised. They beautifully decorated a banquet room and smuggled in my cake and other surprises. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable, and my stay was overall exceptional.

I recently took a trip to Marion to burry my grandmother, and meet family members. I did shop. Marion has 3 choices. 1. Fleabags. Low priced. Dirty. Old. Scary. 35-50 + tax. 2. Name brands, Comfort inn, etc. Will cost you around 89 + tax for a single person. Hotel Marion is in my opinion the best value. I payed... More
