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.

Love it! Great Location off of the highway.

I have stayed here several times when traveling from Michigan to Texas and back. The staff is friendly and they have drinks in a small cooler near the desk as well as a small area with other snacks and personal items that you may have forgot. I really love that they have movies to rent as well. You just take the case to the desk and can rent them for like $3. The rooms are always clean and having a microwave and fridge in the room is always a plus. The hotel is located right off of the interstate but you would never know it. I have never had an issue with traffic noise affecting my sleep. Breakfast is wonderful with hot sausage, bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc. I always plan my time to end up here for the night. Also, they have a lovely sun room with a pool and relaxing Jacuzzi tub. It's perfect for relaxing those stiff muscles after many hours on the road :) Stay here and you won't regret it!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Just a short walk across the parking lot to the Cracker Barrel Restaurant, a Steakhouse/Bar, and gas station which is nice for picking up snacks for the road.

The hotel was just perfect. After a long drive, the staff was helpful and got me into my room quickly. The room was very clean. I had a wonderful rest that night and enjoyed the fresh breakfast.

not too bad over all

Stayed there during a businesses trip, good location, the room was very clean and tidy but you know, nothing super fancy. The have hot breakfast, this was below average in terms of variety and quality. You also can borrow a DVD to watch your stay and their collection is actually not bad. Overall, not bad for the price
