Very clean, in a good area of town. Close to many businesses. Employees very friendly. Breakfast was one of the better ones for complimentary ones. Even though I gave it a 5, I have one suggestion. This is a non-smoking hotel, however one of the designated smoking areas is right by the front door. You have to wade through the... More

DaBigG - Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your review. We have definitely taken your suggestion into account and moved our smoking pole by our front entrance away from the doors by 10 more feet. Thank you again for all of the great feedback and we hope to see you again soon! More

The rooms were clean. Breakfast buffet was tasty and plentiful. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially figuring out a double booked room (not the hotel's fault.) We had a big room and really enjoyed our stay.

This our second time at this property. It is a great stop, newer hotel, great location and many fine dining choices very close to Hotel. It is truly pet friendly with a $25 pet fee. I especially liked the breakfast area. There was a nice lady keeping everything clean and up to date all up and down the breakfast bar.... More

I've stayed at several properties in Marion over the years - Comfort Suites, Hampton, Drury, Fairfield and here. This one excells. The rooms are a bit nicer and larger than the others and the free breakfast is far superior. The beds are very comfortable, showers work well and the linens are in good shape. The bedclothes have a high percentage... More

Beginning of a very long trip in June. Landscaping still establishing. Lots of luggage carts. Pet rooms appear to be clustered together on the second floor. No over powering scent of carpet cleaner or fragrance to cover pet oopsies. Who knew at the time that it was the best hotel breakfast we'd find. For a full house, buffet was kept... More

This property is always 5 star and never an issue. 1st class all the way! Every time I travel to Marion, Illinois, this is the only choice. The front desk staff, the breakfast buffet crew, and the cleaning attendants are superb.

Something broke in the toilet tank and the water was running constantly through the bowl. I reported this to the girl at the front desk, and she handed me a plunger with the bottom wrapped in a plastic grocery bag. I explained that the toilet didn't need plunging.

This is a relatively new hotel in a great location right across the street from a baseball stadium. There are restaurants and places to shop within very close proximity with many, many new buildings going up all around them. If your trip is taking you to Marion, I can't imagine there is a better hotel to stay in while there.

I trusted the reviews and chose this over my preference of the Hampton Line. While I do terribly miss the fresh cut fruit of the morning at breakfast and the easier shampoo/conditioner bottles of the Hampton line, I was pleased with my choice. Convenient, free parking. Good breakfast service. Good check in and check out. Clean room. Comfortable room. Recommended.
