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!

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.

Good end to a busy day!

Arrived at the hotel around 9:00 pm after a long day on the wine trails. Found the room to be very clean and the king size bed was WONDERFUL :) The only thing that I would mention is that the water in the show did not get a hot as I like, but other than that I don't have any complaints. The breakfast bar was good. Would return to this hotel if I am in that area again.

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.

Great Stay

I gave this 5 stars because it was perfect for what we needed it for. Obviosuly not a luxury hotel, but that's not what we were looking for on this trip. Needed close access to Carbondale, but didn't want to spend double the price to stay IN Carbondale. 1 min drive to quite a few restaurants, mall, & stores. Clean room. Bed was a little more firm than we like, but others may like that. Pool & hot tub were clean & perfect temps. Breakfast was just enough. Easy check-in & out. DVD player, fridge, & microwave in rooms were convenient. Would stay again.
