Our family hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express until we took a trip to Florida in March. We had a successful stay in one on our drive down and so everyone suggested I find another to stay in our drive home.
We put in a v-e-r-y long drive on our first day and were hoping to find somewhere to stay in Paducah but everything was booked. We usually try to stay in that area because it's just over halfway home. I'm glad we pushed on to Marion, Illinois because we were quite pleased with the HIE we found there. It's a brand new hotel and everything is very clean. We arrived late but the front desk clerk gave us each a bottle of water and a snack, which I thought a nice touch.
Most importantly, our room was clean, quiet and the mattresses and pillows were comfortable. I wished I could have had an extra hour in that bed! The bathroom was not huge but roomy enough for our family with all our toiletries. They even gave my husband and son toothbrushes and toothpaste because they forgot to pack them on the return trip!
Breakfast was good and hot. We like the cinnamon rolls that the serve along with eggs, sausage and bacon. There's also an assortment of cereals, bagels, etc. Seating was adequate for the breakfast crowd.
We didn't stay long enough to take advantage of the exercise room and pool, but they're there for those who want them. There's also a large flatscreen TV in the room if you've got the time to watch but we had to pack up and hit the road. Based on my family's response, I would be happy to stay here again and would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay in the Marion, IL area.
