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.

I thought as a rewards customer you were treated special. We did not get all of the room service breakfast we ordered. Front desk very friendly and helpful.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GT45 Great Hotel!
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!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DaninSTL OK hotel. Don't look for automatic upgrades for Platinums
Hotel is OK. Location is good. The rooms are good and comfortable and clean but starting to show a little age. Not bad and about average for IHG motel properties. In my opinion this would be a much better hotel if it was a HIX location.
Platinum's offered snack or 500 points. No automatic room upgrade like other IHG hotels. Also given free breakfast voucher for onsite restaurant but not sure if that is an elite perk or not.

This is the second time we've stayed at this particular hotel. There were some problems with the bathroom upon our initial arrival but were addressed as soon as maintenance staff arrived. The room was clean and comfortable. The kids also used the pool. Breakfast at Boondocks was great and a good value using the voucher coupon. We will stay again the next time we visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by srobinson More than any single dad could ask for.
Over the last three years I've made regular trips to see my four children in Carbondale, IL. Each time my children and I have stayed there the staff has been extremely helpful, understanding and accommodating. More importantly, they have been very kind to my children and I. Divorce, and all the accompanying changes can make family life rough. In particular, the transitions when children shift from one parent to another at the end of a visit are sometimes emotional and chaotic. The Carbondale staff have been very respectful in these moments. I will always be grateful for their kind words, flexibility and professionalism.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandmaJ5 very comfortable room
This is the first time I stayed in this hotel; I was extremely pleased with the room, the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely stay here again. I very much enjoyed the decor and ambiance of the suite.
My only suggestion would be a better quality sleeper sofa.

There are no luxury hotels in Carbondale, but Holiday Inn Express is clean and always gets the job done. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, wi-fi included and I love their new turquoise lobby and renovations. They are the newest and most modern hotel in town. I always stay here on my yearly visits to see family at Chirstmas and I've never had a problem. The new seafood restaurant looks interesting although I haven't had a chance to dine there since it was closed for Christmas Eve and day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by madori37 Comfortable and convenient
Hotel was extremely accommodating, clean and comfortable. They provided cribs for my 9 month old twins at no extra charge. Price is a little high for us common folk but understandable. My pea coat and pink scarf were left in the room closet and staff informed me that it wasn't found, so that's disheartening. Oh well, that's at pretty much every hotel! Hope someone is at least enjoying it and staying warm, while smelling of coffee and baby spit up! I will continue to stay here everytime we come to visit my grandparents.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Salukialum One of my favorite
I have stayed at this hotel several times, and it is one of my favorite places to stay near Carbondale. The staff is friendly and the rooms are quiet. The restaurant, however, is horrible. The staff is unfriendly and the food is terrible. Stay here, just don't eat here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sandpointdave Front desk staff non-chalant with keys not working
Upon checkin my platinum status was not acknowledged and there was no bottled water or snacks given as is typical at most IHG properties. During our entire 3 days, the front desk staff could not get our room 309 keys to work consistently. There attitude was that I was doing something wrong.

The room I requested was a no smoking room which smelled like stale beer and cigarettes! Over priced for the area! It's Carbondale not down town Chicago.

No breakfast, no hot tub in pool area. For a big brand name hotel was greatly disappointed in the lack of basic services offered by competing hotels inthe area(ie the property next door.)for the same money.

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.
