Our family of five spent one night at this property while we were in town for a sporting event in nearby Carbondale. It was recommended by a friend who had previously stayed at the former location and told us you could get a better rate in Marion than in Carbondale. We decided to take her up on her suggestion when we noticed this property offered a room that would sleep all five of us. Our friend checked in 24 hrs earlier than we did and texted me to tell me it was a brand new location and was gorgeous. The only downside was that the pool isn't open yet. She was told that it should be open by in a day or two, but it still hadn't opened by that second day.
The front desk staff was very helpful. Our room was so new it still smelled new. The room was quite clean, except for the half-eaten peanut butter cup we found in the bedside table drawer. The pillows were plentiful, but the mattress was a little harder than I personally like. There were no linens in our room for the sofa bed but the front desk staff was responsive to our request for some. The room was very generously sized with plenty of room to move around even with five people staying in it. I appreciated that I could fit between the farthest bed and the air conditioner without having to turn sideways. There was plenty of desk space and ample outlets. The flat sreen TV was quite large. Ours had good reception but our friends' down the hall had so much static on certain channels that they didn't watch it. The bathroom was a generous size as well. The toilet seat seemed rather flimsy for such a nicely appointed new bathroom.
Breakfast was very well stocked with three varieties of meat (bacon, sausage patties, and sausage links), two kinds of eggs (scrambled & hard boiled), full size and half size fruit yogurts, cinnamon rolls, a pancake machine, biscuits & gravy, cold cereal, breads/bagels/muffins, etc. Once the front desk figured out how many families were staying there for this sporting event they got the breakfast going as early as they could to accommodate us. As Priority Club members, we did not receive a newspaper, though.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to return.
