Nice stay. I even forgot my pillow and called the hotel when I finally got home (6 hours away) and they found it for me and are shipping it back! So nice! Thanks Holiday Inn Express.

"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.

Was a good stay in a newer hotel and a quiet night sleep, clean pool and small fitness room. Took the advice from another review and got a room on the 4th floor for a good night sleep. Thanks. Ended with a good hot breakfast that was included in the nightly rate.

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.

"Hotel was clean and conveniently located."
The hotel was clean and the location was perfect. The two young men at the front desk were 'ok'. However, I was told when I booked through expedia that I would have a Jacuzzi/hot tub in the room; however when I arrived, the room was a standard queen.room. When I asked about the reservations, the two young men were not very helpful and they brushed it of like it was not an issue. Also if you book through Expeida you will not get your prefer customer points... I would stay at this facility again. Hats off to the house keeping staff!! Great Job!!!!

This is a great hotel. Reasonable, and very nice staff. The breakfast was good but not great but I guess that depends on what you like to eat. There was a nice variety. Noting to do nearby but again that depends on why you are staying there. I'd stay again if fate brings me in that area again.

"Great Hotel-Best in Marion!"
I stayed 2 weekends in a row. First was great. The second was very noisy (stomping and doors slamming) after 11pm and before 8am with swimmers in the pool (screaming/yelling). To avoid this possible issue in the future, I will reserve a room in the front side on the 3rd or 4th floor. Other than this noise problem (possibly isolated incident), this is a great, very clean hotel with friendly, helpful, and efficient employees. I have stayed at other Marion hotels in the past and find this to be the best. I will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express whenever I visit Marion.

"Great hotel"
This was a quick overnight stay after a concert but I was tempted to stay the weekend. The hotel is new and everything about it is first rate. Room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was the same. My only complaint about the bathroom is one I have with most hotels. The light & fan are on the same switch which is most annoying. Most of the time there is no need for a fan and not having separate control is ridiculous. One of the best improvements I found were the electrical outlets by the bedside table. There were 2 separate outlets with 2 plugs each located on the wall right above the table. This meant easy access for 2 cell phones and no searching for outlets. There were also additional outlets on the desk for computer. Every hotel should be this easy. The hotel was right off the interstate, easy to find and only about 10 minutes from the venue. It is also very close to the main shopping mall and many restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.
