Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great staff, lovely lobby, wonderfully large bathrooms.
Enroute back to Chicago from TN, decided to stop and see the Shawnee National Forest. Did not have a reservation but wanted to stay at a Holiday Inn and luckily there was a room (this was mid-week) and it was wonderful. Having recently stayed at Holiday Inns in Europe and Kentucky, this inn was definitely the nicest. The location was perfect and the hotel is a newer building (8 years old I believe) and everything was clean and well-appointed. I would definitely recommend this Holiday Inn if traveling through Southern Illinois - and of course, if visiting SIU.

I would have given a higher mark but the air conditioner was not working correctly and kept going off and leaked water all over the floor. The other issue was it was unofficial at SIU so we had noisy folks in the hall. Without those 2 issues the property is very nice as well as the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smit1 Great place to stay for business
Overall this hotel has been great. Good comfortable beds that are in clean rooms and a great atmosphere. Close to a ton of food choices in Carbondale, though the best might just be the attached restaurant Fat Bottom Betty's. I had to come down here for 3 months due to business, but I'm glad I was able to stay here because everything was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noelle100 Great place in all aspects except the pillows . . .
Everything was fine, efficient, friendly staff, clean, attractive. However, I barely slept a wink because the pillows were too hard. Didn't expect that or I would have brought my own soft pillow. Would recommend that each bed have an assortment of hard to soft pillows for each sleeper type.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grs2014 Never have to wonder
No matter where I go this is the only place I'll choose to stay!! I've tried staying in other places and you have to wonder whether or not it's going to be decent, if you know whether not you going to get your moneys worth. Holiday Inn rooms, I know the staff is going to be professional friendly I know the room is going to be clean I know the service is going to be excellent it is always been an amazing company!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Value buyer Priced too HIGH!
This is Carbondale Ill , a rural college town in the middle of nowhere. Our room was priced like downtown Chicago. Sorry , your pricing was just too HIGH. Not a good value for the money.

Great staff - very helpful. Room was clean, but found a cockroach running across the desk in my room in the morning.
