“Terrific Facility & Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I visited family this summer in Marion and stayed at the Comfort Inn. Every member of the staff was interested in making my stay a pleasant one and always asked if there was anything they could do to assist me, including printing off a map and directions. My room was generous and well designed - it included a sofa, desk, internet, refrigerator, micro-wave, coffee maker and coffees/teas. A hot breakfast was served buffet style each morning - wonderful selection and A+ quality. Delightful to the weary traveler.

I wanted to give an "excellent" rating, but a couple of MINOR issues caused me to rate Very Good.

The minor issues:
1.The toilet tank leaked a little, causing some water to puddle on the floor.
2. Some noisy guests could be heard, but that is more of a guest issue, than a hotel issue.

On to the good stuff!

As others have stated, upon check in, we were greeted with a small gift bag with some goodies in it. Check in was fast, accurate and friendly. Also in the lobby, is a popcorn maker, free self serve bags of popcorn for guests.
This was a free night stay, using Choice Rewards (Sign Up, It's Worth It!) and we were recognized as members.

I reserved a handicapped accessible king room which was large, clean and waiting for us. Very comfy bed, very large bathroom with a handicapped equipped tub, toilet and sink. Plenty of grab bars and a fold down wooden seat for the tub.

Everything was very clean and when exiting the elevator, I could still smell the freshness of the build as this hotel is roughly one year old as of this writing. A few dirty spots, gum, etc., were visible on the elevator carpeting, but as someone who worked in a retail environment as maintenance, that isn't a reflection of inappropriate cleaning. Just in people who should know better than to drop gum on the floor.

The TV had many channels, including HBO and had a high quality signal. The WIFI for Internet was excellent as well. Several options for logging in to allow for the strongest signal. The front desk will provide a password for using during your stay as it changes nightly at midnight.

Plenty of good parking and several dining options surround the area. The hotel offers free breakfast which was great! yes, the typical fare, but in higher quality and quantity. The biscuits and gravy were great and I loved the spicy sausage patty. No bland, cold stuff here!

Each floor has it's own pop and ice machines. We were on the second floor and a lot of time you either have to go down to floor one, or up to floor three. Not here! The lobby does have a snack machine as well.

I did not use the indoor pool or hit tub, but only for a lack of time. They seemed well maintained and the water temp when my wife stuck her foot in seemed just right to her.

We traveled down here from the Chicago area to visit some family and spend time at Rend Lake and based our choice of lodging on the reviews from right here at tripadvisor.com.

There are plenty of hotels and lodging in the Marion, IL area, but I was glad we chose here. You will be too!

NOTE! Your GPS might not know this location! The directions given on the hotel page are accurate, so follow them. My phone has GPS/MAPS and it did find the address, but the street name was not found on my Garmin GPS even with updated maps. The hotel is up on a hill and you won't miss the nice Comfort Inn sign high in the air.

we stayed at the Comfort Inn while visiting family in Marion. what a great place. it is bustling with activity as guests come and go and use the on site facilities. We rented a suite and WOW it was huge. full living room, bedroom, and a kitchen that had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The staff was great and get along very well. Marion, at I-57, has become a major stay over for travelers and truckers going thru the central part of the midwest. If your traveling thru Marion do not stay anywhere else.

Was in town for a one night visit. Found this hotel on my internet search......excellent. Brand new. Room was clean, breakfast was excellent. Only drawback...not huge... was the address for the hotel wasn't in my GPS and Onstar couldn't find it. It's that new. In a grwat area with many places to eat and a Walmart next door if you have to "pick something up". Fraont desk staff was excellent. Asked directions to a restaurant I was meeting people at....the gentleman at the desk walked me out to the front parking lot and showed me the way.

Stayed for a night visiting family. The hotel smelled new and the front desk lady said they were just celebrating one year open. Wow! All the staff was very friendly-we were always acknowledged when we encountered someone with the hotel. Our guest room and bathroom were incredibly clean and the beds were very comfortable! It was really nice to have hot food for breakfast instead of traditional continental breakfast choices. The hotel is right off of I-57 & next to several restaurants and gas stations. There's a Wal-Mart and Target right by the hotel which was great since we forgot our swimsuits. We will definitely stay at this Comfort Inn when we come back to the area.

Room Tip: Suites have king bed and queen hide-a-bed & lots of room!

This hotel has won our hearts and definitely will be our "choice" the next we plan to be in this area!!! This place was immaculate, a breakfast choice of foods comparable to a restaurant,
easy to find from the interstate, super friendly professional staff, well lighted and safe, and close
to several excellent restaurants, minor league baseball, shopping, etcJust. The staff even welcomed us with a gift bag of snacks and bottled water!!!! What more could one
ask for???

Room Tip: Put this hotel in your contact list!!!
