We love Carbondale and avoiding the non-traditional hotel. Dandelion Inn was perfect. Great location and walkability. Kelly and Jon we're super nice and easy to communicate with. We felt very comfortable at the Inn and would stay here again in a heart beat!

This small B&B has four rooms, we had a nice big tub in our room (downstairs queen), the owners cooked our breakfast to order at the time we wanted and were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were not super fancy, but nice and clean.

Great place to stay in Carbondale. We were in town for a wedding and needed a place to stay for another night. Great location, easy to walk downtown to food etc. Very nice, clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Bob and Norma were great hosts, welcoming, accommodating and friendly without imposing themselves on us. Breakfast was excellent and they coped easily with my dietary requirements, the gluten free waffles were the best I have experienced. We stayed overnight on our road trip to the Grand Canyon and enjoyed it so much we stayed there again on the way back... More

The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Best waffles in the world. The room was very comfortable and quite spacious, despite being one of the smaller ones available. Clean and lovely. Would definitely recommend.

Bob and Norma were delightful. They gave us space and quiet when we wanted, information and stories when we asked. Fed us a great breakfast of fruit, juice, coffee, tea, eggs, bacon and waffles.
