“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We were in town for one night, and this place was great. Josh, in particular, was very helpful getting us checked in, and then later even helped us even though his shift had just ended. Clean, relatively quiet room and a nice free breakfast. (Also complimentary cookies and apples!) In the morning when we were leaving, we realized our rental car didn't have an ice scraper, so someone working at the front desk actually got hers from her car for us to use!

Overall: excellent service, excellent room

This was not my choice but it was a nice place. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was fine. The property has easy access to the highway and is close to dining and shopping options. The building appears to be recent construction so everything is in tip-top shape.

I have rarely been let down by Holiday Inn Express. This was a very nice facility with a nice room. Staff was very nice and accommodating. We did however, find what looked like a "bugle" snack under the ottoman for the chair in the room. That was a bit disappointing. All in all it was a nice mostly clean room.

Big thanks to the Holiday Inn Express in Marion who took us in after the Holiday Inn, Carbondale did not have a room for us even though we had a confirmation for a room there (apparently they had overbooked). Special thanks to General Manager Matt Monchino and his staff who were extremely helpful in our situation and made sure we were well taken care of. My son and I were extremely appreciative of their kindness. Room was quiet, very clean, and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again!!

The front desk staff was very accommodating and helpful. Very well-kept property.

Our room was beautifully decorated and had many little touches I hadn't seen elsewhere, such as reading lights on both sides of the headboard. Beautifully decorated and perfectly clean and comfortable. It was quiet inside and in the surrounding area outside. Look for the sign, because after you turn off the interstate it may be the last one you'll see! Worth looking for though. Nice continental breakfast with all the extras.

I stopped in here on my road trip heading south. I had a king room on the first floor. This is a wonderful new hotel with the latest design and amenities found in a new HIE. Do not be surprised if your GPS does not find this area, there is so much new construction in the area, just follow the signs and you be able to see the hotel once you exit the interstate.

There are several places to eat nearby, be aware, they may not stay open late in the evening. I would also recommend making reservations, you never know when a conference or traveling sports team may be passing through. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on business, and was very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the rooms. There are several restaurants nearby, although they could stand to be open a little later on the weekend. I stayed in a very spacious king room, which had a refrigerator and microwave. The showers were very hot, and there was a desk to work at and a nice chair to relax in.
