Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saluki Mom Always clean,comfortable and safe
I began staying here last year when my daughter was a Freshman at SIU. I had to come back twice unexpectedly because she was in the hospital and I stayed at the Holiday Inn for 6 nights. Always felt comfortable coming back late at night from the hospital. I will be coming back for Family weekend in a few weeks and staying at the Holiday Inn. Also suggested the Holiday Inn Carbondale to some alumni of SIU who were passing through and wanted to know the nicest place to stay!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaLaCook Excellent Stay Away from Home (frequently)
My son attends school in Carbondale and I have frequently been a guest at this hotel over the last 2 years. Although during the last stay the restaurant Boondocks was being remodeled into a new restaurant and was closed - usually having the restaurant (and bar) downstairs has proven to be a great meeting place in the evening for all the parents of students attending school locally to relax and socialize.
The staff at the hotel are warm and friendly. Any request I have made of them has been greeted with a willingness to accommodate. The staff greets you every time you return to the hotel and wish you well when you leave - it's just an extra touch that makes this hotel so homey and comfortable.
The rooms are clean and well kept - and during the hot months I really appreciate that the air conditioning works so well. The beds are firm and comfortable (I like firm) and I've never had a bad bed at the hotel - I am a hobby cyclist and have been known to have lower back issues. I've never had a back problem on their beds.
The staff are always willing to make recommendations about places to eat, places to visit and give directions. I also appreciate that the staff turnover at the hotel is non existent so you get to recognize and know the staff if you stay here repeatedly. The consistency is the hallmark of this hotel.
I have stayed at one of the few other hotels in Carbondale that are nearby and after one stay at the Hilton I will not stray. It's a good value and I truly appreciate the staff and their excellent service. It's comforting to know that while away from home I know I will have a good nights sleep.

Allowing for pets to stay in this hotel was a surprise to me. I heard several barking dogs in rooms. This was a point of discomfort at one point in the evening.
The elevators were dirty, the rugs were stained and dirt was built up in there. They were also slow.
Those are the only two negative things. Overall it was a very nice stay.

The hotel restaurant was closed for remodeling so the breakfast was not as good as it would have been. But the staff did provide an excellent continental breakfast.

Good price, great service. Bed (regular king) was the most comfortable one I've had at a Holiday Inn (even nicer than my personal bed at home).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SIU student parent You'll be happier in Marion
The room was clean but average in every respect except for the climate control that took 2 hours to adjust the temperature by 1 degree and the bath tub that took a half hour to drain after it filled up with water during a typical shower. Most hotels offer complementary breakfast that's ready to eat. I thought the breakfast was pretty mediocre and it all took to long to get the food and get going. If you plan to eat breakfast at the hotel you can expect to spend an additional 12 dollars per person. The food was not worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VHill1 Great Hotel and Staff. Slept like a baby!
I travel for a living and I was lucky to be able to bring my family this time. The hotel is very nice and the staff was excellent. I just made Platinum but my points had not posted. The staff upgraded me to a larger room (which was very nice). I was very impressed with the quality and comfort of the beds and bedding. I don't normally sleep well and I slept like a baby. We enjoyed the breakfast and the wait staff was very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arsoncop Very nice place to stay
We were in a king room with a whirlpool tub. The room was clean and also well laid out. We were able to watch TV from the whirlpool and also the bed comfortably. The bathroom is large and has two sinks. The shower has glass doors which is cool.
We had interactions with the front desk staff on the morning shift and the evening shift. Everyone was pleasant, friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed breakfast at the attached restaurant, Boondocks. The food was good and the atmosphere pleasant. Although there was only one waitress and she seemed to be a little frazzled as there were quite a few customers.
The common areas of the hotel were clean and well decorated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dan60607 horrible restaurant service
The hotel was great - I will stay there again. The restaurant (Boondocks) service was so bad as to be nearly non-existent. I went there for breakfast and had to wait for the staff to finish their conversation before being seated. I placed my order and, after 10 minutes, the waitress told me they were working on my biscuits and gravy. After another 10 minutes, I walked back to interrupt the wait staff's chat to check on my order and was told it would be ready soon. Not wanting to waste any more time, I left and got breakfast at McDonald's There were a total of five other diners in the restaurant, so I'm not sure why, other than the staff's very relaxed approach to customer service, I didn't get my food.
If you're looking to stay at a hotel with a restaurant, skip this one.

Do not count on a continental breakfast at this hotel during the weekend unless you are a member. The hotel has an attached restaurant, and although the food is great it is not complimentary. For the daily cost of a room at this hotel, breakfast should be free seven days a week and for everyone. Might want to consider what's else is available next door if your counting on breakfast here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greekmama The best in Carbondale
We have been staying at this hotel over the past five years and have always had a wonderful stay. Most importantly, the rooms and extremely clean and the staff is always hospitable. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quite large so we are never bumping into eachother! We would not stay anywhere else in Carbondale!

I travel 45 weeks during the year and spend a lot of time in hotels. This is by far the best hotel I have stayed in. The hotel is very nicely decorated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was an clean and newly refurbished. THE BED was outstanding. Had the best night's sleep in a long time. The restaurant, Boondocks, had very tasty meals and the service was great. I am happy to give the Holiday Inn, Carbondale, Illinois, 5 stars. Thanks for a great stay!
