Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UncaJack Superb staff and facility except for breakfast
This remains a top-notch place; always fresh and clean and neat. And the staff is super friendly and helpful (a problem with the room A/C was fixed within the hour, for instance.) The fitness center is top notch, even offering bottles of with chilled water. The Friday morning breakfast in the adjacent restaurant was fine. But on Saturday we got just a $4 coupon which barely covered coffee and juice. We ordered oatmeal -- this is a restaurant, mind you -- and it was the instant yucky kind. And was served cold. Across the street at a chain motel the guests were eating sausage and eggs and waffles and muffins and cereal and fruit and more. And they paid less. Please, Holiday inn, don't insult your customers by being chintzy.

I would just like to say each time we come to see my brother in Carbondale we have really enjoyed the holiday inn the best. Hands down. Everything from the staff to overall cleanliness has been the best. The maids were also very helpful and pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hope4U Beds were very comfortable and the service was exemplary.
From the time we checked in until the time of departure, the service was excellent. I forgot a toiletry item and the item was hand delivered to me--within three minutes of my requests. When typing a speech--about 1:00 a.m. in the business center, the evening clerk inquired if I needed assistance, and offered me water and snacks. We were pleasantly greeted each time we entered the lobby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tlford Awesome hotel staff and comfortable rooms
The GM and Sales Manager have assembled an awesome staff to meet all the needs of their customers. The front desk staff was friendly, professional and knowledgable of the area and it's attractions. The hotel is clean and commands a friendly atmosphere. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone travelling in the Carbondale area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happymay12 Will make this out yearly Labor Day hotel
We have tried many different hotels in the area as we are there every Labor Day. Our only negative is that while a comment was added to our online reservation & email was sent (with no reply), we were told they were out of cribs for our 7 month old and were offered no alternative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bgabriel39 Excellent stay at this hotel
I was at this hotel for a couple of days and have nothing to say but all positive!!! Arriving check-in was smooth and the staff at the front desk was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable and if I need anything the employees were more than helpful. The restaurant was very good and they brought our food to our room. Check out went smoothly, I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again when returning to the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FOB68 Leave plenty of time for food service
Good room, good bed & bath. Front desk also good. Breakfast was inordinately slow - slow to order, slower still to receive food and yet slower again to get the bill. Had to head into the kitchen for the bill and found our server chatting with the cook! Maybe a nice conversation but lousy service!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frieda Great New Find
We visited this hotel to see friends and do some of the Carbondale area wineries. This property seemed brand new. Because we are members of IHG rewards we received a free room upgrade which was great. It had a large king bed and plenty of square footage. The workout room was small but all the equipment looked new and there was a great flat screen to help get me through my daily workout. The workout room also contained a fridge with bottled water, a water cooler, and fresh fruit which I took advantage of. Pool area looked great, but we did not have enough time to enjoy. Would definitely stay here again if we return to this area. Did not eat at the property so I cannot comment on the attached restaurant.

The staff was fantastic especially the one on late night. We came in late from a wedding and wanted pizza. She gave us recommendations, paper plates and offered to-go boxes when we ordered too much!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by McG24 The Good and Bad
The hotel stay overall was very good. My wife and I felt that the reward for membership was very cheesy. We received a snack from a Rice Krispy box and a bottle of water. We also received a coupon for breakfast which entitled us to $4 off of breakfast. We have stayed at other hotels where the breakfast was included we felt that this was a very poor reward for the members. We felt that the staff provided great service as well as the hotel being very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hpdjv Clean, comfortable, newer & great staff.
Everything was above average and always nice to stay at a hotel that is exceptionally clean and everything is like new. Our only complaint was the coupon for either one of 3 items for "free" breakfast or any menu item at a $4 discount. I decided to pick a waffle and use the $4 discount because it wasn't one of the 3 free options. I've had a lot of waffles in my 52 years and this was the worst one ever. Take a pass on the resturant attached next door and eat elsewhere. Wish they provided the now standard breakfast other hotels include. Other than the breakfast an excellent hotel. We have a freshman at SIU so we will be back many times over the next 4 years.

We have stayed here twice while visiting our son. Nice, clean room both times. Used the complimentary breakfast tickets just once but it was very nice as well, and free. Will definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dalster1 great hotel, terrible restaurant
our room was one of the best we have ever had...great comfortable beds, the pillows (soft) were awesome...we are trying to find out if we can purchase a couple...
the restaurant (Boondocks) was horrible...even with the discount breakfast, it was horrible...day one the biscuits were burnt onto the serving dish and no bacon or sausage left...we had to ask and the bacon was SO OVERCOOKED it tasted burnt...
the second morning, they had to make the omelet 3 times...,yes 3...ordered as mushroom/onion/tomato...came out first as peppers and cheese, second one came out with spinach and almost whole large mushrooms, no tomatoes...and the thirds had hardly any mushroom and we had to ask them to bring tomatoes to put on it....can't figure how you can get it wrong so many times...spinach wasn't even a choice on the omelet vegetables...lol

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Illinois4 Highly recommend this hotel
We had an excellent four night stay at the Holiday Inn-Carbondale over the 4th of July. The front desk staff was exceptional! All of staff we encountered during our visit were professional, friendly and very accommodating. The staff should all be recognized for their excellent customer service and work attitude. Hotel property was in very good condition; room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the outside patio and hotel proximity to Walkers Bluff, the Shawnee Wine Trail, and the Carbondale restaurants and shopping. We will definitely stay at this property the next time we are visiting southern Illinois.

Nathan at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Room nice size, but on my second night of stay I noticed that when my room was cleaned during the day, the bedcovers were barely pulled up and the pillows were in the same bunched-up configuration as I left them in when going out for the day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guest345 Nice place, but stay above 2nd floor
The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. I had a room on the second floor and there was a party/reception with very loud music until very late in the night in one of the first floor conference rooms. Friends staying on 3rd floor said it was quiet. So, it's a nice place, but stay above 2nd floor.

This hotel's room was clean and well maintained. Front Desk staff were friendly and helpful. I would not recommend the hotel's restaurant at all. Service is terrible, if one is luck to get the waitress' attention at all.
