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. Now really, I know Holiday Inn Express is a "downmarket" kind of... More

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.

The hotel was approximately five years old but smelled brand new! Loved that hotel and grounds were so clean! Room was clean and cold! Bed was comfortable and loved the size of the room. Breakfast was provided and food was constantly being replenished. Location was convenient to the interstate. Would definitely stay here again!

This is a super nice location. We only stayed here one night. The room was clean and ultra modern. It came with a frig and microwave. Since it was July the A/C was on and running when we arrived. The A/C worked perfectly and kept us very comfortable. The bathroom was spotless and everything worked perfectly. The front drive has... More

This hotel sits right off the interstate along with a Drury hotel and others. If coming from the South the interchange might be a little confusing for some as its not a typical on/off ramp and is a fairly busy area because of the hotels/restaurants and shopping but worth it. The HIE is a clean hotel. Comfortable beds, pleasant staff,... More
