Friendly staff, convenient location, hot breakfast. My king room was clean, but standard in furnishings and decorations. The in-room refrigerator, microwave and single serve coffee maker would have been utilized if I was stating longer than the one night. The room was right next to the pool and thus smelled like chlorine and a little musty. I was too tired...

I stayed at this Best Western on a fall ride to southern Illinois. This Best Western in a very nice facility. It's clean, welcoming, plenty of clean linens, flat screen tv, and location is easy to find. The breakfast is ok with eggs (that appeared to come in a roll), sausage, hockey puck biscuits, gravy, waffles, cereal, muffins & pastries....

Never stayed at a Best Western Plus before. I was quite surprised with the quality and friendliness. We received a good rate for the suite we stayed in. The breakfast was hot and had an excellent selection.

Nicest hotel in this area of Marion. Short drive to SIU. Friendly staff, clean room. Nothing like a hot waffle in the crowded breakfast area. Cram those tables in! The coffee was plentiful too but all the yogurt they had was pumpkin pie or vanilla (ugh).

Thank you for choosing to stay with us! We pleased to hear we proved such an excellent stay for you. I am sorry about the yogurt flavors that were left as they must have ran through all the other flavors. We hope to see you again soon!

My husband I were down to celebrate his birthday. The hotel was excellent and everything was close by. We had a great stay. We were able to walk to a excellent restaurant, which we would also recommend. Very close to Garden of the Gods, which is a MUST see.

Very nice hotel, Bed was comfortable, and the breakfast the next morning was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel, it was very easy to get to also. Being able to see the hotel from the highway made it very nice. The person at the desk when we checked in was very helpful and very nice. We have another wedding...

First time traveling thru this part of iL and used the internet to locate this hotel. On-line booking was quick and descriptions proved to be quite accurate. Very pleased with the accommodations. Breakfast was one of our best experiences at Best Western. Highly recommend as a good stay for either overnight or several days.

I picked the hotel because it was right off the interstate. The service at the hotel was great. There is a few places in walking distance to eat or have a drink. The smell at the hotel was aweful. Luckily there was a CVS in town to get a can of Airwick and a candle.

This is one of the better Best Western hotels. We were extremely pleased with the stay. Breakfast can't be beat, room was great. We encountered not problems at all and recommend this hotel for the area. Check for the military family rate if you are retired or active duty.
