We found this to be a very good place to stay while in the area – a bargain for the price. Don’t pay attention to previous reviews of this hotel, for the price and amenities it is worth much more than 3 stars. It has been renovated and updated with new carpeting, bathroom fixtures and tile, furniture, furnishings, comfortable bed, powerful shower head, and fresh paint. Obviously much different from what was experienced under previous ownership. The people working the desk are efficient and very helpful – we found John to be particularly cordial and friendly.
Main Street is a good location for getting to just about anywhere in the Carbondale area. We were able to get to the SIU campus easily as well as travel through a wine trail and visit a couple of other nearby towns.
There is free wi-fi, coffee, refrigerator, and microwave in the room. Breakfast was also provided with our room. This is the one area that was lacking quality in our experience. While other carpet has been replaced, the carpet in this little breakfast room was worn and dirty. The breakfast itself was like what is served in many of the hotels of this caliber – preformed eggs, sausage, make-your-own pancakes, cereals, bagels, juice, and coffee. I found the instant oatmeal in packets to be the best meal for me.More
