Super 8 Carbondale
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Carbondale
Reviewed April 10, 2010

This is one of the cleanest places I've stayed at any price. Rooms are larger than usual, beds are comfortable, lots of nice amenities like in room coffee, ironing board, closet, cable tv but there is no elevator for this 3 story hotel. That was a bother, but otherwise, this was a very nice place for a short stay.

I've stayed at several 'budget' motels in Carbondale while attending the State Fair in DuQuoin. This Super 8 it BY FAR the 'pick of the litter'. Clean and well maintained, if you're looking for a nice shower, clean and comfortable bed and not a lot else, this place does the job. The TV in my room left a lot to be desired with it's reception, but that might have just been my set. The a/c did it's job, too. Breakfast is pretty typical Super 8...that is...not the best. Some juice, and couple of kinds of cereal and a little fruit pretty well covers it. I make the in-room coffee and then head out the back door to Larry's Pit Bar-B-Q about 50 yards away for breakfast. Bacon and eggs at a reasonable price. They're good for dinner, too. If there's a better 'budget motel' in Carbondale, I haven't found it.

We had checked in to The Americas Best Inns and afer seeing the nastiest hotel room I have ever tried to check in, we called and this hotel had one king suite left for only $20.00 more. When we arrived the staff couldn't have been any nicer. They apoligized to us for our bad experience, which is more than the nasty hotel did. When we got to our room, it was spotless. It was spacious, everything that was promised was in there. It was a very pleasant stay and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning on visiting Carbondale.

Over Memorial Day we spent one night at the Super 8 in Carbondale. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. The price seemed high $79.00 a night for a 'budget' hotel and the complimentary breakfast was mediocre at best. It was comprised of packaged granola bars, danish and cereal.

First let me give you an overview.

This hotel is located on hwy 13 across the street from the University
Mall. It is in a convenient location, and reasonably close to the AAA office. Has AC, Microwave, Fridge, coffee machine. There is a very limited breakfast included with two kinds of cereal, two kinds of juice, prepackage danish, two kinds of fruit and english muffins.
Beyond that there are no frills.

Good items:

1. Good basic room.
2. Reasonably quite.
3. Discounts on extended stays if you ask (week or more.)
4. Good deal for the area.

Bad items:
1. They charge you for a room safe fee even if you do not use it. However, if you do not use it and tell them so, they will refund your
money.
2. No extra frills, just a basic room. No laundry facilities, no pool, no iron to use, etc.
3. The AC in my room was excessively noisy, but may just be that one room.

Overall a nice stay. I would stay here again if I came back again.

Nice room for the money, we stayed on an overnight on the way to Florida. Price was the draw for us and can't say any thing negative about it.
