New BEST WESTERN PLUS Marion Hotel is right off of I-57 at Exit 53, walking distance to the Cracker Barrel, close to SIU-Southern Illinois University, Shawnee National Forest, SI Miner, SI Wine Trail and Crab Orchard Lake. This Hotel in Marion, IL is surrounded by Carbondale, Paducah, Evansville, Mt Vernon, Cape Girardeau, Harrisburg, West Frankfort, Benton, and Johnston City. Southern Illinois University hotels are often geared more towards college students looking for a low-cost weekend getaway. When you pick this Marion hotel, you get all of the benefits of a top notch stay. When you're taking your high school student on a tour, there's no reason you can't enjoy some luxury. Other hotels in Marion, Illinois strive for this kind of service. We still offer a few smoking-permitted rooms so that you can travel in comfort. The indoor pool and hot tub is the ticket after a full day of hiking or walking around the local campus. Of course, our friendly and helpful staff is always on hand to make sure every need is attended to. There are multiple vineyards nearby, so if you're here to check out the wine trail, this is the Marion hotel for you. Southern Illinois University hosts parents weekend, sign-up week, and of course graduation, so you'll want to be close to the campus. Rent One Park is just a few minutes away where concerts, events, and sporting tournaments like Southern Illinois Miners games are held. The Kokopelli and Rend Lake Golf Courses are just a few of the many in Marion. Hiking trails like the Shawnee National Forest & Garden of the Gods and Shawnee National Wildlife Refuge are popular picks. Of course, if you're traveling on business with Aisin Manufacturing Plant, Pepsi Mid America, Caterpillar or Bombardier, you'll be right down the street. Reserve your room at BEST WESTERN PLUS Marion Hotel for the ultimate in convenience, affordability and quality!

Very disappointed

Hello, This was not the first time I have stayed at the best western plus in marion, but it may be the last!! Upon arrival we noticed pool and hot tub closed, which is where my sister planned to hang out whole I attended personal business Friday and Saturday in marion. So she sat in hotel room for over 5 hours bored I felt awful and the fact the hotel staff was not apologetic or accommodating really disappointing

Good deal on saving money on a personal trip.

Everything was as good as it gets for this general level of a hotel. I was on a budget on a 3.000 mile holiday driving trip. The staff was super and the breakfast was good, not like the grouch that posted a dim view of it.

Great Family Stay for graduation

It was a busy weekend for all surrounding hotels and business with the winter SIU graduations. We were well please with the ease of check in and the accommodations. Room was spacious, clean and had a nice aesthetics decor. Hotel was full and the staff displayed great hospitality.

not so great

We did enjoy the WiFi accessibility, breakfast, and pool. And the location was convenient and easy to find. However, we had previously booked a king suite and upon arrival, it had already been occupied. We instead had to settle for a queen room and were not accommodated in any fashion.

No compliants

I found this room to offer more amenities than the Hampton Inn for about half the cost. The rooms need to be updated a bit, but they are comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant. The hotel was quiet although I know they had many reservations. I would stay there again.

Older property, needs some updating

This is an older hotel with noticable wear and tear. The breakfast area is extremely cramped and food selection is lacking. It was a quiet clean room which is about what you expect in a BW Plus hotel. Others we've stayed at really had the "wow" factor, but then again, they were new.
