Good hotel if you are a heavy sleeper. Walls are very thin and can hear everything, even when your neighbor turns on the light. If you are a heavy sleeper is great if not, you might want to think of somewhere else to get some sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"wont return :("
well, lets see there is a bar downstairs, and people that stay there and drink then run around banging on doors, cursing people out for hours in the middle of the night was a little upsetting but from the moment we sat on the bed, whose sheets popped right off because they were the wrong size, i knew we may be in for a problem. sent my son to get ice.. […] oopps its broken, so sent him to the gas station to get some. put it in our cooler NOT THE REFRIGERATOR, which over the weekend leaked all over my suitcase of clothes. they had to be laundered before my grand fathers funeral. not that i didnt have enough to do i need to be online.. nope cut out every 5 to 15 min. the people that work there were very nice, they apologized for the connection, said they told their boss of that problem before to no avail. they were extremely apologetic about the crazy loud people. and cleaned the room well when we were out. so no problem with them Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sorry, cannot comprehend "title of review"!"
Stayed 3 nites, we've spent 25 yrs, managing apts. & husband now wks at a resort in a tourist town. He noted the slow sink, paint scraped off wall by a chair, where he works, that would never be tolerated. Reported slow sink when checking out. it was clean,though!Also had a refrigerated mini bar sitting on chest and it covered most the mirror on wall. […] Needed a separate place for it !!!

You could tell building was older but room and bathroom very clean. Bed comfortable. Quiet for location . Breakfast very nice variety. Staff very pleasant. Well worth the money if you do not expect fancy.Genuine Expedia guest review
For the money it was well worth it. The hotel staff was VERY nice and pleasant. It was clean and affordable and great location next to a gas station and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived to the hotel at 9:45pm, she had no record of our reservation, and although I provided my email confirmation She proceeded to make us stand at the front desk with our 3 children for 25 minutes. The first room she issued to us was clearly not touched after the previous client left, one bed made, the other completely ripped apart. No sincere […] apologies offered.

"Easy and reasonable"
This is a reasonably priced hotel. We found it easily traveling on a 2 day trip from Georgia to central Illinois. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Marion,Il is always under road construction. Motel a bit hard to get in and out of. For the price, fine motel Strong smell of cleaning fluid in halls. Breakfast OK. Nice king bed. Would have wanted a nicer place if wife had been with me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to lay your head"
Staff was very helpful. Room was clean. For the price it was a good place to get some sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what I expected."
Though I booked a room for pets through Expedia Americas Best Value Inn in Marion, IL, didn't have that record so relocated us to a smoking pet room with two beds instead of the king bed/nonsmoking room we had reserved. No smoking smell was there though the room had been "overwhelmed" with cleaning materials to cover it up. The hot water was luke warm, […] the heater was set up to work on a motion sensor so that meant when we were asleep it didn't work. It was near zero outside so it got a little chilly inside. The motel as in dire need of remodeling. Staff friendly and helpful with requests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay and well priced"
Got worried when I saw the bar next door (rough crowd that night). But once in our bedroom (building behind) it was surprisingly really quiet. Your stay will come with a token for a free beer at the bar next door (FYI: IT IS ONLY FOR BEER!). If you need a night to rest while doing an 18h drive, this is the place! Price is right too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a newer Bates Motel"
Our family was driving home to Colorado from Florida, and this was just a pit stop. As we pulled up, there was a girl getting arrested in the adjacent parking lot and there were 4 cop cars. There is a liquor store attached to the motel, which seemed to attract some interesting people. I am far from a snob, but this place is somewhere not suited for […] families with small children. The room smelled of carpet powder, furnishings were very dated, towels were like sand paper, and NO hot water for showers. This is just the perfect example of getting what you pay for. Stay on the other side of the highway--the area is much nicer and the motels that cost more are well worth it. Luckily, Norman Bates' mother didnt make an appearance that night!

"close to highway"
stay was ok but I only stayed one night but was charged for two shouldve gotten a discount since i stayed only for one night...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK, but you get what you pay for."
We stayed 2 nights due to needing to be in Carbondale for a graduation. We knew going in that this was a low budget hotel and only needed someplace to lay our head at night. The staff is excellent! They were very friendly and extremely accomodating. However.... We were on the first floor. The room was very humid and had a funky old smell. It was clean, […] the beds were very comfy. And we were not charged extra for the 1 1/2 inch water bug that was climbing the wall. The staff took care of it quickly. They did offer us another room but my husband did not want to move. The hair dryer did not work. Ok well I lied, it worked for 5 seconds and then promptly overheated. The toilet was clean but the seat was extremely loose. Made for interesting potty time. If in a pinch I would stay again, but only if there were no other choices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Facility was run down and needs a LOT of work"
06/19/14 Dan W Stillwater, Minnesota
I know we paid a relatively low price, but the property was in extremely poor condition. Everything from the room to bathroom to the outside part of the facility needs work there. For example, the shower had NO pressure, the drains took forever to drain, the facility was generally dirty, and the outside of the facility, and the halls, side entrances, etc. was a complete disaster. The pool was okay, but needs better ventilation. Perhaps the only okay aspect, and I mean OKAY only, was the free breakfast. My suggestion would be to move it on up the road, pay more, and stay ELSEWHERE!

Check in fast and easy. Room were neat and clean with 2 comfortable beds, all amenities maintained neatly.Great place for the price. Great breakfast,. It was little bit loud due to bar. But cant complain they maintained the place well. My visit was worth with price.

Breakfast, fresh waffles, fresh eggs, the guy that made breakfast is very helpful and friendly. Price was great. Clean room and comfortable bed.The strong smell of cleaner but it was better later night.

I just stayed at this hotel for six days, it was recommended by the Southern Illinois Miners baseball team. I would not recommend it for more than one night. The room was just okay, very old place. The bathroom was clean, however the towels were threadbare and some terribly stained. The carpet needs cleaning, a large stain right outside the bathroom door. The room was never cleaned while I was there, someone would knock on my door around 10am and ask if I needed clean towels. I complained that the bathroom sink didn't drain, someone came immediately and worked on it, worked fine for a day or two but again clogged up. The internet worked once in a while but not consistent at all. Breakfast was okay, very runny eggs.
"DO NOT STAY HERE!"
06/06/14 advizzzzzzzzzer Marion, Illinois
Old, not very clean, mismatched furnishings, questionable people hanging around, a hole in the wall bar on the property, internet didn't work and when I called the front desk they said it was just fine and to wait a few minutes and check it again. All in all I didn't feel safe here and was also worried my vehicle was going to get broken into. Find a different place!
04/06/14 CharlieRan Springfield, Illinois
I expected something better after checking the rating on the website. The room was generally okay except for a few problems. We stayed in a pet friendly room. For the $10 fee, we had a laminate floor that was dirty. A few steps and we picked up a considerable amount of dirt particles on our bare feet. The room smelled smokey even though we were staying in a smoke free room. I spent the night fighting with the fitted sheet. It was quite obvious from the beginning that a full size fitted sheet had been stretched over the queen sized bed. Of course the sheet didn't stay in place. It showed very little concern for our comfort. I would recommend passing on this place.
My daughter and I were on our way home from a Florida trip. This was the first time I have stayed at an Americas best. I was impressed. The pet friendly room was very clean. There were laminate floors instead of carpet. Very good idea. I was very happy with everything. The breakfast was very good. The only thing I would change is the milk for the breakfast. It would be better to have milk cartons instead of milk in a coffee craft.
