My husband and I stayed here one night when we traveled down to my class reunion in West Frankfort. Room was clean and breakfast was good. Location is convenient. It was easy to get on and off the interstate.

We were here just one night. It is a solid value. Everything that one expects in a mid range hotel. Room was clean. Mattress was old enough that you could feel the structure of the springs through the covering but not so terrible that I couldn't sleep. In spite of being very close to the highway, the room was quite....

I arrived at the hotel on a very stormy evening around rush hour. Cars were pulling off of the interstate in droves and I was concerned about finding a room in Marion. When I arrived at the BW I received the friendly greeting that I've come to expect from all their units. I was provided with excellent accommodations and directed...

In the midst of a bevy of hotels and restaurants, the Best Western Plus Marion Hotel sits off to the side next to the expressway. The entrance is rather confusing and the location in somewhat of a labyrinth but the rooms themselves and the very professional and courteous staff make it one of our favorite hotels! The breakfasts were much...

The hotel is always clean and comfortable. The employees are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay pleasurable. The breakfast is good and the dining area is always clean with plenty of seating. The food is available and hot during the breakfast serving hours.

Only doubles beds so if traveling with family may not be the best choice. The bathroom was also small, large enough to turn around. However, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was quite full of food choices. Stayed a couple nights, but opted not to get housekeeping. Does include iron, microwave, fridge and coffeepot.

Writing this at 11:40 PM. Checked in earlier then returned to room. Found roaches on wall and in drawer and caked food in the microwave.

We are terribly sorry for the issue that you had during your stay with us this time. We take this matter very seriously and in no way find it funny.

We have stayed at this hotel several times as our grandson is a student at a nearby college. This hotel always gives excellent value for the price. The rooms are always nice and clean as is the common areas of the hotel. They offer a variety of options for breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone.
