Recent guest reviews

Air conditioner in room was quiet. Road to Murphysboro for the Smoking cookoff. Road around and hiked in the Shawnee Forest.

The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff was super friendly.

We booked this room for two nights and were very pleased with the room. It had everything we needed and felt very clean. The carpet in the hallways seemed very new and clean. It was a handicapped accessible room. The bathroom had room enough for a wheelchair/walker and the shower was 0 entry (no tub and nothing to step over) with a large cushioned shower seat. The hotel is located off I-57, surrounded by many eating establishments and a mall/movie theater. It's about 20 minutes to Carbondale.

Friendly, attentive, good buffet, love the evening complimentary buffet and drink

Super friendly. Love the complimentary evening snacks and drinks.

Check in was great and easy. The room was even ready a bit earlier than official check in. Clean room, comfy bed, plenty of space. Didn't spend a large amount of time in the room, but did manage to sleep without trouble due to the comfy bed and blackout shades.

Room was clean and quiet. Large bathroom. There were chaise lounge chairs on an outside patio for relaxing. I even got to see the great fireworks show at the baseball stadium next door. Breakfast was good. Room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Property was immaculate and I am pretty picky about stuff like that. Cracker Barrel nearby. Yea!

It's very nice hotel and nice people working there.

My daughter and were in town to attend an open house at SIU. This hotel was not the closest hotel to SIU, but I chose it based on reviews. It was very easy to get to SIU from here. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are heavenly. I used the exercise room, which was small, but wasn't crowded both times I went in there. The breakfast was good for me, with hot oatmeal, my staple. My daughter, who is somewhat more selective, chose to skip the breakfast on the second day. We had a little bit of a problem with directions from various internet sources; it seems to be a somewhat new area. There was also a good deal of construction close to the hotel which made getting around a little bit challenging. When we had to stay another night unexpectedly due to bad weather, we chose the same hotel and they were able to accommodate us for a second night. All in all, very pleased with this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights at the Marion, IL Fairfield Inn and experienced excellent service with a high quality hotel. We will definitely stay at this hotel next time we are in Marion, IL. The staff including housekeeping are very customer focused and provide excellent service.

This is a great place to stay in Marion, Illinois.

Nice clean hotel located next to the highway

The room was decent, if small. [...] I asked for a room with a view of the baseball field, and they acted as if there were no rooms left in the hotel...on a Tuesday. After the first night I figured out why they didn't want to give us a different room: we were on the end, and every time someone went up or down the stairs the thudding echoed through the whole room. Otherwise, it's a fairly typical hotel in this price range: the rooms were clean if on the smallish side and the breakfast was cereal, fruit or Jimmy Dean breakfast biscuits.

Friendly and helpful staff. Great variety of breakfast selections.

It was nice to walk into a room that didn't have the smell of dampness. The temperature was set with the fan running on low. The room was spotless. Not just in looks (most hotels are) but it was CLEAN!!! The staff were very pleasant. We enjoyed our stay. We will return and we would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Nice clean place to stay. However, the rooms are cheaply made and you can hear the toilet flushing in the rooms near you. I could also hear people in the next room talking. Other than that, the staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable. I would stay there again. Also, once you get to the road it's on, look for the actual hotel. The GPS didn't find it.

Restful and quiet location, convenient to I57, however there was hair in the bathroom, also mildue around the tub
