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.

There are multiple vineyards nearby, so if you're here to check out the wine trail, this is the Marion hotel for you.

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.

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.

Very comfortable accommodations

The hotel was somewhat hard to find as it was behind some other businesses along the street. Accommodations were comfortable and the continental breakfast was better than many we have experienced. It was close to some of the popular restaurants. We would recommend this hotel.

JUST FINE

Got in at 10pm out at noon next day. For a one night only stay it was perfect location in between where I needed to be. No hassles and a clean room.
