"Decent Hotel, Excellent Price"
I usually don't choose the cheapest hotel in a town but in this case I did. Good location close to the interstate, food and gas. Friendly staff, clean rooms, wifi and a nice breakfast. Couldn't ask for more in a one night stay.

"Cheap and Clean"
I have always been a Marriott girl so when I booked the Super 8 I was less than excited. But when I called to ask for a 4 hour early check in the staff was pleasant and helped me out. Also the room was very clean and updated. For the price I paid this room was a steal!

Clean quiet newly remodeled rooms:) Would prefer the stairs to rooms to be replaced with ramp or elevator. Not user friendly for luggage.

Response by Super 8 Marion
I am pleased to know that you enjoyed the newly refreshed rooms. The housekeeping staff work very hard to make sure every room clean. You were no exception and I am honored to know that we did not disappoint you. I am sorry the stairs were not convenient for you. When they built this hotel they did not look ahead at how important having an elevator would be and I truly sorry you had to go up and down stairs with your luggage during your stay with us. Than k you for choosing to stay with us during your recent visit to Marion, IL and we hope to see you again in the future.

I could not have asked for a cleaner room or a more pleasant and helpful staff! I came in for family business and was very pleased with the accommodations. There was literally EVERYTHING I needed within a 1/4 mile of the motel - McDonalds, Sonic, Taco Bell, WalMart, Kroger and gas pumps! It is highly unlikely I will ever be back in Southern Illinois again (no more funerals to attend), but if I am I will definitely book at this motel!! Thanks, Kristie, for printing my boarding passes-you saved me a ton of time at the airport!!!!!!!

I am sorry to hear about your loss. We know how important it is to have a clean room and friendly staff when you are traveling whether it be for work or family business. I am pleased to know that the staff here at the Marion Super 8 treated you respectfully and Christy did whatever she could to make your traveling as pleasant as possible. We look forward to seeing if you ever decide to travel to Southern Illinois again.

Two night stay. I specifically asked the housekeeper to change the sheets for the 2nd night, and she didn't. In fact she wasn't going to refresh the towels and soap until I asked her to. The halls have an automatic timed scent dispenser, so all the hallways overwhelmingly smell like a very cheap perfume. Other than that all was OK and pretty clean.

I am sorry that you were not pleased with your stay with us and the housekeeper was not responsive to your needs. I would to thank you for bringing this to my attention so that I address this issue with my housekeeping department so that it will not happen to any other guest. I hope that if you travel to Marion, IL again you will give us another chance to make your next stay more pleasant.

"The staff was friendly!"
While the staff were friendly, the rooms were just ok. I did not like the fact that our fridge in our room smelled and I broke out from the linen. Must be the soap they use. The lobby was too small and cramped. I think that they just need to remodel this hotel.

"quick overnight"
We booked this hotel as a crashing point on the way from Nashville back to IL. Room had recently been updated and was very nice, clean. TV was outdated but a jack on the wall implied maybe updating soon? Bed was very comfortable, especially after a long day. Shower pressue cut in and out a few times but temp stayed stable. Convenient location just off interstate and near Carbondale where we spent the day. Staff was very friendly. Would stay here again.

"Need some standard on Breakfast"
Pros - Room had two queen size bed. - Inside was clean. Cons - Breakfast had only bread, waffle, yogurt, coffee and tea. I think there should be a minimum standard for breakfast when hotel says that they have breakfast. - Smoke smell was there in the hallway - Shower did not work properly in the room 109. - Booked based on reviews, but could not see how it could get great reviews.

"Pleasantly surprised."
Maybe it boils down to market/brand recognition, but when I booked at Super 8, I didn't have much expectation of quality. Boy was I WRONG! This location had clearly undergone a recent renovation. The outside of the building was attractive and clean, my room was amazingly clean, handsomely appointed and the duvet looked like it had just come brand new out of it's box. Both the front desk staff and the housekeeping staff were, at all times, very friendly and helpful. And they actually smiled when they spoke and had excellent customer service skills. This review is for the Super 8 in Marion, IL. I would recommend it to anyone I know.

Definitely the nicest super 8 I've ever stayed at but it was just remodeled so the rooms are in excellent condition but the new design is quite stunning and after staying in that overpriced death trap The Quality Inn in Carbondale the night before the Marion Super 8 was ridiculously comforting. We will definitely be staying there from now on when we visit the area.

"One night stop in Marion, IL"
Could not have possibly had a nicer and more attentive desk attendant for check-in. Room was very adequate, smelled a bit stale but the facility is undergoing some remodeling so maybe mine room wasn't done yet. Very very convenient access to I-57 as well as dozens of businesses and eateries. Would very much recommend this for business travelers.

"Returning from Florida to IL"
This hotel is remodeling. Our room had a king bed and was completed except for the flat screen TV. A little hard to find because of the road construction. Room was very nice and breakfast was cereal, coffee juice yorgurt fruit toast and a small cinnamon roll. Attendant friendly. Restaurants nearby. No pool or exercise room but the price was more econimical as all we needed was a place to sleep. We would say here again. Good for couples who are just traveling and need a overnite room

"Good place to stop"
We stopped over on the way to deliver a rescue puppy. The hotel is in the middle of some renovations, but it was overall pretty clean. Our room had not been renovated yet so it did not have baseboards, but I figure we got the one we did because we had a dog. We had asked for a king size bed, but got a queen. The desk clerk brought us more pillows and the morning clerk replaced our hair dryer. All in all it was not bad considering.

"Great Hotel forgetting off the roads."
We were driving through Illinois heading for home(Wisconsin) when the roads became icy. Asked at the front desk about paying for a room with a credit card over the phone but was told it could not be done. They recommended doing it through Expedia. They were very helpful and the rooms were pretty clean. It was nice to have a fridge and microwave without having to ask for it. The microwave could have been bigger but we made it work. The continental breakfast was more than we expected and the rates were pretty good compared to others we checked into on Expedia. The front desk people were very polite, understanding and very helpful. I would stay here again.

"Ok for one night traveling stay"
It was older hotel, great to be run by English speaking Americans. Two minor poor things: 1. If you have trouble w/stairs you should not stay here. Either 7 up or down to get to rooms. 2. Very small and not many choices for hot breakfast. Only oatmeal or waffles. No eggs, meat, etc! After saying those things and knowing them in advance I would spend another night there traveling!

Stopping in town for the weekend and looking for a cheap place to crash, it exceeded my expectations. The entire hotel was clean, well maintained, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room were not expected, but clean and made our stay much more comfortable (what else do you do with leftovers when you're traveling?).

"MINUS 8"
The place smells bad. Not sure if they use chemicals to cover up smoke or the place was built over a garbage dump. Musty, like it's growing mold. I asked to have a different room. Had a headache for day and a half. When we came back at 2:30 - 3:00 pm the new clerk was short and upset with us because we didn't stick around until the cleaning crew showed up at 9:00 am. Carried our own things up a flight to a new room. Didn't provide luggage carrier, or able bodied person to help. We are senior citizens and didn't appreciate the flippant clerk or the lack of help. New room still smells bad but not as bad as the 1st floor room. The water at this place tastes and smells like a combination of rocks and wood. Too earthy for me! They should change the name of this place to MINUS 8! Very bad.
