I have always felt that Holiday Inn always had the nicest, most professional staff of most hotel chains. I was shocked when we were greeted by a gum smacking front desk attendant on our arrival. These kinds of things can be easily overlooked because I like a stick of gum every once in a while. We get to our room... More

I've stayed here a number of times with my family as I am a frequent traveler to Carbondale. Despite my criticisms, it is my hotel of choice in Carbondale. My main frustration is the breakfast. Most of these hotels advertise and provide a decent continental breakfast. This location does not. They have an attached restaurant and offer a coupon for... More

Very nice hotel, friendly staff and clean and spacious rooms. The included breakfast was a nice touch and the washer/dryer was much appreciated. The hotel is a nice location, out of town, but close to shopping center. Always good to make a reservation in advance, as being a college town always something happening.

Hotel was nice. Staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and modern. There is a restaurant next door that served good food. WiFi worked well and a decent selection of TV channels. A limited free breakfast associated with the restaurant next door and for a nominal amount it can be upgraded to a more substantial meal.

What a great Hotel, it's graduation weekend and they where ready for it! The staff is amazing and extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel, but you have to plan way in advance because it's a College town and it books out almost a year I advance!

There was absolutely nothing spectacular about this hotel. It was very typical. However, the helpful staff kept it from getting a 2 star review. I left my breakfast order hanging on my door at 8p.m. It never came. Reason being that it was never taken off my door! Since this hotel does not have a free breakfast, this did not... More

We stayed here for a college softball tournament. It was new and clean and we have no complaints. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant next door was really similar to most free breakfasts at hotels. Cheaper bacon, powdered eggs, etc. but it was good.

In town for my sons baseball game, Holiday Inn was second choice and was pleasantly safified with our stay. Two nice gentleman checked us in and gave us the lay of the land. On site bar - restaraunt was also more than expected. Food was unique with wood fired pizza our favorite. Beds were better than "heavenly" !!! Will recommend.
