comfortable, quiet, the girls at front desk went above and beyond to help us- had car trouble and had to stay longer than originally thought- location was good, wish the beds were more firm; liked the indoor pool.

The Amtrak train station in Carbondale, IL, is easy to get to when staying at this hotel. We had to catch an early train. The complimentary breakfast is normally available starting at 6 a.m. They had our breakfast ready at 5:30 a.m. because they learned that we had to leave at 6 a.m. to get to the train station. Now,...

This hotel is very close to SIU campus. Very close to shopping and restaurants. This hotel is very clean, the beds are comfortable. This hotel is going to be our home for the next four years. The staff is very friendly. The price is not bad either.

We stayed here for 4 nights, and everyone we came in contact with was helpful and friendly. Our room was nice and large and clean. The breakfast, although typical of a Best Western, had fresh fruit in a bowl, hot items, and many other choices. The breakfast area was kept clean and picked up throughout the breakfast times.

I had an early train to catch to Chicago from the Amtrak station located in Carbondale, so instead of getting up super early and driving over an hour from my town, I decided to stay in Carbondale the night before so I wouldn't have to get up so early. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very nice young lady....

Great place close to SIU to stay for meetings or campus visits with a homey Saluki feeling. Nearby to many restaurants, mall, and shopping facilities. Quick access upon entering town from Marion/I-57.

THe room was great! The people were polite and helpful. When we arrived we were very tired. We had a 9 pound dog so expected a room that wasn't very nice. The room was really nice. Had room to put our luggage. Enough towels. Very nice.

It was a great stay and the receptionist was very courteous at check in and made sure that my team and I had everything we needed. The kids love the pool. Will stay here again and recommend others as well.

All was above a normal Best Western. I travel and stay at many Hilton's and Marriott and this hotel is just as nice if not nicer. Staff is excellent, rooms with leather couch and nice quality TV and all decor is updated and very comfortable, Had Fridge and microwave in room.

Room had so much hair everywhere. The extra roll of toilet paper was damp. Hard to get the room cool. Bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. But for one night stay while we did the Shawnee wine trail, it was fine. Close to a really great vegetarian restaurant, Longbranch.
