"Not a good view --mostly fences and parking lots."
The hotel clerk the morning we left never smiled once that I recall. Over all, it was quiet, clean and had enough breakfast items and served til ten AM..which I like.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value and great room!"
I have stayed here many times, but was very impressed this time with some updates and overall appearance of the hotel. Very reasonable and pleasant stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was an okay stay"
Had difficulty getting a 2 non smoking double bed room. Originally booked smoking room by mistake and the room smelled horrible (apparently expected as people smoke in those rooms). The replacement single queen size room the bed was too small for 2 adults and 1 five year old. They gave us a crib but it was too small for my daughter. But fortunately […] they were able to shift us to a two double bed room the next day. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was not great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overniight in Marion"
This motel was acceptable. I was only there one night, but it seemed about average in most respects. The breakfast was pretty much non-existent. It was conveniently located to I-57 and several restaurants and retail locations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basic and clean"
Our room was clean and comfortable. The hallway reeked of cigarette smoke (especially as you approached the stairwells) but our room was free of that, thankfully. Breakfast was simple; there were no eggs so we augmented our meal from the McDonald's next door. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Even though it was a non-smoking floor . The smell lingers in the halls .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so far from our destination, SIU"
We were comfortable & it met our needs. Hallway was messy but room was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for!"
The room and bathroom were very clean. The room coffee maker and microwave were new and worked ok. The hotel was well used, but acceptable. Our problem concerned the comfort of the room. The king size bed mattress should have been replace years ago. It had a terrible dip. We booked the room for 2 adults. Unfortunately, the bathroom items were stocked […] for 1. We booked a non-smoking room, as my wife is highly allergic to cigarette smoke, and I have asthma. We noticed cigarette smoke in the hall way, lobby and the stairway, as this hotel does not have an elevator! By 2 am we began to smell smoke in our room, but thought it may be coming from the hallway. When we woke at 6:00 am, we had to leave the room, as cigarette smoke had entered our room from the hall and from the air conditioning unit. When we discussed our disappointments with the desk clerk, we heard nothing but excuses. My wife was miserable for the 400 miles remaining on our trip! Buyer be ware!

"Good hotel, good price"
Room had everything you need-fridge, microwave, hair dryer, iron board, and coffee maker. Breakfast consisted of coffee, OJ, apple juice, yogurt, oranges, breads for toast, instant oatmeal, and waffles! Check in/out was super fast and easy, and employee was very nice. Hotel has a McDonalds right across parking lot and a Pilot station on the other side […] of McDonalds. Would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was not sure what to expect, because of the price. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of room and how friendly and helpful the staff was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Super 8 was a pleasant surprise! Since it's inexpensive, I didn't expect to find all the amenities that come with the more expensive hotels. I was hoping there would be a hair dryer. Not only was there a hair dryer, there was a microwave oven and a refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was perfect. Internet was fast. The staff was […] friendly and helpful. I will certainly look for Super 8 in the future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Motel 8 in Marion Illinois is fantatic"
The beds had the best mattresses on them. The pillows were my kind of pillow. They were not flat. They were perfect. The room was nice in every way. We would definitely stay again. The staff were great. I cannot say one bad thing about our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean, well-equipped (e.g. refrigerator, ironing supplies, A/C, hair dryer, fresh towel, etc..) rooms. Outstanding staff, who go out of their way to accommodate the needs of lodgers. Excellent and abundant continental breakfast. Will stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Over all they stay was very good although the bed was very unfortable for us. It was too hard and we could not sleep well.. The service was very good. I called and asked to for early check-in and she got us in right away. The room itself was very clean. I would come again but would want a more comfortable bed. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For a Quality Basic Night's Stay"
We were passing through and needed a clean hotel with a continental breakfast. We arrived late and left early. I recommend it for those that are wanting the same in a hotel that is reasonably priced.Genuine Expedia guest review
Small but priced perfectly with the prepay rates. Clean, small breakfast nook but decent breakfast. Friendly staff. Little odd on the entrance but good food around the area as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very satisfied with my stay"
The hotel was very secure and very well cozey. I especially liked that there was a 24 hour gas station near the hotel. The only thing that I wa dissapointed was the parking lot was kind of on the small side. But I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who has family near by or just passing on by the town of marion,IL.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel and location worked out well. My wife and I planned to spend the weekend at a nearby Bed and Breakfast and hike Shawnee National Forest. The B&B did not have an open room on Friday so we spent the night at this Super 8. Everything was fine except for the bed. Both the bed and pillows were very stiff. Not at all comfortable. It probably would […] have been fine had we brought our own pillows, but we didn't. Other than the bed, the hotel was fine for an overnight. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing to say - it was an okay night. What's there to say? Slept well. Breakfast was fine. Staff was helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super Super 8"
I have stayed at Super8 several times, as it is close to the VA hospital & they have always been so nice & kind. They are always my 1st call whenI need to be in Marion, Il. & need a place to stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a night's sleep while traveling."
This hotel is great for a night sleep. Nothing fancy, just a normal hotel with a bed and good breakfast in the morning. The hotel staff was excellent - very personable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay!!"
Very nice and clean. Great for a quick stay....Lots of places near by to eat!Genuine Expedia guest review
I called the hotel four days in advance of stay advising them we had someone in our party in a wheelchair. As a result of this, I told them we needed a first floor room. I was told that we would have a handicapped accessible room. When we arrived at the hotel, we were informed that they were sold out and our room was on the second floor with no elevator. […] Will not go back here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean & Nice"
Clean and nice. Nothing fancy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was really helpful here. In searching for a gluten free dinner, the desk clerk recommended and looked up phone numbers for a few restaurants. It was also a bonus to me that we had free wi-fi although it was a bit slow and the hotel was pet friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Centrally located, very clean rooms, and supplies were plentiful. Staff was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. They gave us the same rate we got online for an additional night.Genuine Expedia guest review
The breakfast left a little to be desired..very little to eat, poor selection and very little roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good price and very friendly staff. Also, they have waffles for breakfast, so that's a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Crab Orchard Hunting Trip"
Great place to crash while hunting. Pretty average overall would probably not take my family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I made reservations for my children for the Christmas holiday for a double bed room for three nights. They are in the military and were traveling from Georgia. When they arrived they were given a single queen. The staff quickly appologized for the inconvience and a double room was issued. My son said the room were cleaned. The people at the front desk […] was pleasant and friendly. I would make reservations there again for my family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"reservation screw up"
the hotel and our stay where great except that when we arrived we were told we had reserved smoking rooms. the motel was to be full for the weekend and they could not move us to a none smoking room.I don't know who's screw up it was but it was not the greatest stay as the room really stunk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for overnight stay"
Bed was not as good as home but the rest of the hotel was fine. SUper fast check-in, good breakfast, clean room. The price is right.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK location but could have been better"
I have stayed at this hotel before and probably will again, but there are some things that need improvement. FIrst of all.... it reeked of tobacco smoke, even though there was a No Smoking sign on the front door. When we asked the desk clerk about it she said. "Oh yeah an guy just left here smoking in the hallway... Oh well". Then later in my stay, […] I had forgotten a razor, went to the front desk to see if I could buy one from them. "There might be one in the vending machine... was my answer. Well, I checked out the vending machine, all slots were full and no razors. My asthma was acting up so I turned on my shower to get a little steam to help keep me from coughing. I did not turn on the exhaust fan... after just a few minutes, my smoke alarm went off. I immediately turned on the exhaust fan, and fanned the al arm with a magazine. The alarm quit after a couple of minutes. I was so embarrassed. Then a little surprised that no one came to check. No one called. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"super8 marion ll, marion ill"
We were having a hard time choosing a location to stay because on our last trip we booked at Econo lodge in the area. We spent our first night in Marion changing our hotel, staff at Econo lodge were ridiculously rude, would never, ever do business with them again. Hotels.com dealt with the horrible staff via phone and we moved. So we were skeptical […] on what location to stay at on a budget on our next trip. We chose Super 8 and were totally satisfied. Yes, you do have to walk up the stairs, we are in our 40's and healthy so it did not play a part. If I had my 74 year old father with me I could not have stayed. The room was very clean and smelled a lot less smokey than more expensive places we have stayed at in Marion. In non-swimming months there we will stay at Super 8 ll. otherwise we will choose a hotel in the area with an outdoor pool on our summer visits. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I rated this hotel a 3 because it really is neither excellent or poor. It is what it is: a 3. I did feel that it was overpriced by about $10.00 per diem, but I was slow to book, and that might have had something to do with it. I felt safe and comfortable enough, but nothing to write home about.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hard to find the entrance but very good bargain."
We had a hard time finding the entrance....winded up getting back on the interstate and had to circle back.....BUT it's a very nice, inexpensive, clean motel. Quiet and the continental breakfast was better than good!!! We'll definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some improvements needed"
Nice hotel lobby and a convenient location are plusses. The breakfast was decent. It was nice having an A/C that ran continually (fan noise even when it wasn't cooling. Internet was not working the night we were there. The hall had an unpleasant smell. The rollaway bed was very uncomfortable, which is notable because we paid extra for it. The television […] reception was not very clear. The bed in the room above us was very creaky. It woke us up when people got in or out of bed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet location close to interstate"
We enjoyed a good shower, clean bed, and restful sleep after a long day on the road. Will stay there again if the need arises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super 8 Experience"
We booked the hotel room while travelling for the military and chose it primarily for the cost of the stay for the night. We arrived at the hotel and got the keys to the room and while we were very tired, we still noticed strange stains all over the carpet of the room. There was also a very strange smell in the room, like a musty smell. The bed was […] not comfortable and there were very thin pillows. Overall, we couldnt wait til morning so we could check out and leave! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, pay the little bit of extra money for a different place!

The 3 floor hotel does not have an elevator and the first night my elderly mother, who has severe arthritis in her back and has difficulty walking, had to climb three flights of stairs to her room. When we mentioned this to the desk clerk, she was rude and said they could not change it because all of the rooms were booked - even though our reservation […] had been made 6 months prior. The next morning, we tried again and the day clerk was more friendly and arranged a room on the first floor. Another issue was the room we originally had to stay in smelled heavely of smoke and both of us had allergic reactions to the stale smoke. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had my Three Great Grandchildren with me and the location of the Hotel was great for their evening meal. Beds were great size to accomodate the 4 of us. Also close to the gas station to fill up before leaving Marion, Il. Thank You Super 8Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate for one night stay"
I stayed at the Marion Super 8 because of its convienance to Carbondale and the price. It has the very basics, but nothing beyond that. The hallways smelled like smoke and there seemed to be people hanging out around entrances late at night. If you're looking for a quick stop over, this would be a good place for it.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was very clean and my stay was very comfortable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overbooked room types had to take smooking"
Rooms were overbooked in the non-smoking so I had to take a smoking, they took no effort in trying to air out the room prior to arrival. Room was ok, nothing greath. Breakfast was even worse they ran out of most things quickly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay in Marion"
Room was very clean and ac worked great. Ample towels provided. Service at front desk was great! Breakfast provided was fresh and whenever something got low it was replenished immediately. Hotel is aging but rooms are maintained and did not need any repairs, which is unusual for a budget motel. Would definitely stay the next time we're traveling through […] southern Illinois!
