"Nice place to get away"
I booked my room on hotels.com and then called the hotel directly to request a handicap accessible room. The person at the hotel was extremely helpful and courteous. We got to the hotel and our room was very nice. One down side was the ice machine and vending is not on the first floor so anyone with limited accessibility would have trouble using the vending/ice. Nice hotel and super close to lots of restaurants/gas/baseball complex is right next door.

"Happy with one night stay"
Room was extremely comfortable. Hotel staff very professional. Booked through hotel.com and it took less than a minute to check in. Loved the bed having a "hard" and "soft" pillow. Very comfortable. Breakfast buffet is better than most I have seen. Only criticism would be for for additional fruit selection. Coffee was good. Over all, no complaints.

"You will NOT be disappointed !"
Hands down, best hotel I have ever stayed. The rooms were modern and super clean. There is a fridge and microwave. The breakfast is expansive and good: eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, fruit, toast, bagels etc. WONDERFULL. Front desk staff is exceptional. The business center is neat and roomy and printers are available. FREE WIFI. pool is small but clean, no hot tub. Can't say enough good things ! Stayed at more expensive hotels that offer less and aren't clean. 2 thumbs up.

"Best place to stay in Marion."
Easily the best place we've stayed in Marion. We visit family in Southern Illinois and Marion is where we always stay. The hotel has a good complimentary breakfast, the suites were very nice and allowed us to set up a "pack-n-play" for our 10mo old, and the staff was very friendly.

"nice hotel that gets the details right"
It's not that the room is well-laid out, that the desk chair is a real one, that you can arrange the work space as you want, or any of several other niceties - it's that it has all of them. Only complaint was the seemingly thin walls, though that's not entirely the fault of the hotel - a large group of teen baseball players was there, with adults that didn't know that they should discourage the students from, say, having a conversation in the hall while others are trying to sleep. Loads of good restaurants close by, too.

"Weekend stay"
Very nice hotel. Very clean. Ball teams there for a tournament across the street. If you don't like a lot of kids around, you might ask about this when making reservation due to proximity to Rent 1 Ballpark. Very nice breakfast. Noise level was a little loud, lots of movement over our room while trying to sleep. Should have taken others advise and asked for room on 4th floor.

Everything and everyone was on spot with the exception of the hot water. Apparently the hotel was having plumbing problems which resulted in lukewarm water that smelled bad. I guess they got repaired because we were able to take hot showers the next morning. All in all, a good stay.

"Cinnamon rolls cannot make up for lack of comfort"
We booked a couple of months in advance, but at check-in the front desk assigned us a "special needs" room by the back door and down the hall from the pool. When we asked for a standard room the manager said we reserved through a third party (hotels.com) and the hotel couldn't change it. We question this policy. The hotel is newer and clean, but comfort was lacking. In December with six inches of snow, we had summer weight bedding that only covered the top of our mattress. There was a lot of noise throughout the night down the hall and overhead. The bathroom had only a handicap shower with a curtain that was was 18" too short, allowing water all over the floor. We stayed two nights for SIU's commencement, and unfortunately the signature cinnamon rolls could not make up for the inconveniences.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
This hotel was much nicer than I anticipated. This was my first experience at a Holiday Inn Express, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much the hotel offered, for example, breakfast bar, amenities, pool, etc... The room was very clean, stylish, & comfortable. Having young kids along, I especially appreciated the late checkout time of noon and the breakfast bar. Our daughter has a severe peanut and tree nut allergy and the kitchen staff went out of their way to check over the food labels for us to ensure the safety of her eating experience. I will definitely stay at this hotel in the future if I travel through this area again.

"Elevator too loud for room 132"
The room was very clean, the staff was very friendly, the hotel was super nice overall. The problem that we had was that after paying $126.00 for a nice hotel room (room 132) we were amazed at how loud the elevator noise was that kept us up all night. It was very loud and made it almost impossible for us to sleep. I would recommend the hotel for sure, just don't stay in room 132. If not for the elevator noise they would have gotten a 5 star rating from us.
