We stayed here for one night prior to orientation at SIU. It was good for what we needed for the night. I liked having queen sized beds instead of doubles. The hotel is close to the college but also conveniently located near popular restaurants and the mall. The ONLY issue we had was a small amount of mold on the shower curtain. I would stay here a […] gain! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"OK for the price"
Good locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We paid for the room and we don't have the money to go anywhere else if there was a room available. We walked into the room and all of the linens were in the bathtub; bed was stripped down. Washcloths in the floor, tray tables, broken window screens in the room with no remote so the TV would not operate. Service did very little; she said she would refund […] the room but she couldn't because it was paid for through the website. We had a paid room but we couldn't be moved, she couldn't or wouldn't find a new remote; all she did was went to the room and was up there for 15 minutes and let us go up. I don't want to know what she did to get it ready but this place was a disaster. We realized later that night there was no fitted sheet on the bed. Highly recommend you don't stay at the hotel that is within 10 miles of this place just in case whatever they do spreads. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel experience of my life!"
I thought it was too good to be true when I booked the low rate, and it was! The hotel/motel was very dirty. They put me in a room on the 3rd floor that had not been cleaned in who knows how long. There were no sheets or blankets on the bed, the furniture was old, the TV was a dinasaur, the room was very dusty, and carpet dirty also. The "staff" on […] duty was probably a college student that was not well versed and no manager was on duty. Another person who was part of the hotel, tried to tell me that I was not going to get my money back for the prepay online, because he offered me another room. This new room was complete with sheets and blankets on the bed, however, it was musty and smelled bad. Paint fumes were very strong as well. I would not recommend staying @ The Super 8 in Carbondale, Illinois, unless you don't care about good service and cleanliness. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Typical Super 8"
This was a typical Super 8 hotel, no frills, but adequate. We were on our way from Wisconsin to Mississippi and just needed an easy place to sleep. The area has every chain retail and restaurant imaginable..The hotel was nothing fancy but clean enough with a typical continental breakfast to hold us over until our next stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to SIU campus for overnight visit"
It was nice to see they are upgrading their rooms. My room was still under some construction. Looks like it just needing painted yet. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. All I really needed for my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room itself was fine for a budget hotel. However, we had to switch rooms 3 times to get a working television. The front desk clerk was very apologetic. I wouldn't stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought is was strange that they came to my room to "smell" for smoke before they would give me my $50 cash deposit back. I have never heard of that before. I usually leave a credit card as a deposit, however I did not have a card with me so I used cash.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charges too fast"
I had a change of plans and did not get to stay at this property. This hotel's cancellation policy is invoked too fast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Both good and bad here. Best things were that it was pet friendly and the staff was very nice and helpful. They are in the process of renovating, so the rooms will be nicer in the future; still small for 2 people; I was alone with my dog, so it was fine and I appreciated the comfortable chair in the room. I had to switch rooms because of renovation […] noise. Mattress was comfortable, but I wasn't crazy about the bedding and only 2 pillows. The location is very convenient, but it is pretty much in the parking lot with other businesses, so not picturesque. I was there for three days and the stay was fine, but I am not sure if I would stay again. I had trouble with the WiFi but the tech number was able to get me hooked up.

"no frills, clean and convenient"
We needed one night for our visit to SIU. It's conveniently located, inexpensive, basic stay. The room was clean, staff was friendly. Beds were sufficient and amenities were we all basic but sufficient. This hotel is not bad for a short stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice for the price."
Room was nice overall. The only issue was that only one channel worked. The staff were very helpful, and the location is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Super 8 Carbondale Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are in the process of upgrading and will have new tvs soon.
"Clean but noisy"
Ok for a cheap 1 night stay. Very thin walls and noisy guests partied until 1am. That was after we phoned down to reception to complain. Little sleep to be had. Wouldn't recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Super 8 Carbondale I am very sorry the other guests were noisy. The clerk on duty was not doing their job. That issue will be addressed. Thank you for taking time to write your review.
Simple, comfortable room in a convenient location. No frills.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Much friendlier service than other inexpensive hotels in the area. Clean rooms and decent bathrooms, comfortable beds, convenient to everything in Carbondale. Super value. I do wish they had fluffier pillows though, but for the price I'll deal with it and plan to stay there each time I come to Carbondale.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Old hotel needs updating. Not the best neighborhood. Beds are not the most comfortable. Staff was great though!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where the heck is the entrance off Main Street?"
I am an intelligent person, but I got into town late after driving all day, and I was tired. Super tired. This Super 8 is located on a big one way strip and try as I might I couldn't find how to drive up to it! Cause you have to go around back! But how? Where? Nothing, no signs saying entrance from such and such street. When I mentioned this to the […] front desk person he seemed to think me mad. I don't think it's unreasonable for a weary traveler to want easy access to their destination or some sort of indication of where to go to find the entrance. Other then that, meh. Dirty carpets. Coffee maker not cleaned from last use. Terrible breakfast consisting of cold cereal and sugary packaged danish. Unlikely to return even though I will be in this burg again.

Room was ok. Shower curtain had mold on it. Towels were so thin it was hard to dry off with one. Night clerk was RUDE!!! We checked into our prepaid room around 11:30 pm. He gave us room key & didn't bother to tell us where the room was located. It was on the 3rd floor & when I asked how to get to the room he said, "up the stairs". I replied ok, where's […] the stairs. He pointed & said "down there!! Obviously needed customer service training!!! I heard 2 other customers complaining on him when we checked out.

"On site builder"
Was a little unhappy due to the fact that, the drain kept plugging up, informed the hotel staff and they would plugged it, but didn't put me in a different room so they could fix the plumbing, cause plugging wasn't helping, it just kept doing it in the tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
"it is worth the money"
We stay at the Super 8 when we visit our son at SIU. It is the right price and good location. Suits are needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is due for an overhaul in interior decoration. Old dirty carpets, smelly ( cigarrete smell) even though it's non-smoking. The room doors slam shut by themselves making a terrible noise and waking you up. I had to change rooms because of the cigarrette smell. The staff was courtious and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
okay for a quick overnight stopGenuine Expedia guest review

SmelledGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Evening check-in front desk staff was very rude and not at all helpful. No smoking on sign outside, however hallways smelled very smoky and carpet was badly stained. A/C very musty smelling. No signs to direct on where to enter or where front office was. Lobby was tiny and had refrigerator and free breakfast set up in corner, no place to sit and eat. […] Not inviting at all.

We were there for 3 nights and everything was fine. Front staff was very cordial If necessary, we could walk to several restaurants plus it is across the street from a large Mall. Breakfast was average-would have liked more fresh fruit, but the endless coffee pot was handy. No problem with the WiFi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel has recently been painted although the towels, sheets, bed covers are well-used; carpets are okay but have stains in the common area; good sound proofing in the rooms and air conditioner was very efficient; no cable TV and internet connection is slow; breakfast was really well-stocked; located in the middle of the new shopping area with movie […] theaters across the road; lots of restaurants located right near by Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Family Weekend to visit college student"
Hotel is very conveniently located for the college and they were able to get us an extra night (booked 2 but were able to stay 3) at the last minute. Hotel staff is very friendly. Hotel room was clean. The hallways though are very smelly and need to be cleaned up or replaced. Strange that the rooms are so clean but the hallways were so stinky. I would […] recommend the hotel if the hallways were better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not much to choose from in Carbondale"
There are only a few hotels in Carbondale. Some are over-priced. This one was about right. The room was reasonably clean, but the bed spread had holes, the sheets were stained (washed, but with permanent stains), and the easy-chair recliner had crumbs from the last person. Bathroom was cleaned each day. The carpet in the room was relatively new. Carpet […] in hallway was very dirty and the stairs had the same litter all three days I visited there. The staff was warm, friendly, and courteous. It was a "good enough" hotel stay. I was only sleeping in the room and gone all day. I didn't think it was worth paying 3 times as much for a better option. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to siu"
The room was clean and the beds were comfortable but... The hallways and staircase area was filthy. There was only one ice machine and it was empty. It was a place to lay our heads for a few hours after a 10 hour drive. To the Siu football field. Oh and the initial check the man was unfriendly and acted as if my questions or presence was a both to him. […] It was 2:30 am and didn't appreciate it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly and responsive; a couple of minor maintenance issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently. People at desk were extremely helpful about local directions etc. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable place to stay in Carbondale.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was friendly and helpful with the exception of the younger lady at the front desk. The housekeepers do a good job of keeping the rooms clean and fully stocked. The hotel needs new carpeting and professional paint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not acceptable for the ambulatory challenged."
There is no elevator to the second floor, so it was difficult for my wife to get to and from our room. The manager said she had not received our request for a ground floor room and had none available for us. We will not be staying there again, and we may cross Super 8 off of our acceptable lodging list.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My son is a student at SIU. We always try to stay here when we come to town but aren't always that lucky. It is in a convenient location & easy access to where we need to go. Always clean & the breakfast is great with the waffles & the price is reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would choose a different hotel next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
