Reviewed 17 November 2012

About the only drawbacks I can come up with are...adjoining rooms are nice when booking two rooms (we always do, required with +3 children)...and did they miss the memo about complimentary breakfast now being the standard expectation?
Who really wants to go sit in a sub-par hotel restaurant for a mediocre buffet, slow service, and pay for beverages/fruit?

We are currently in Carbondale for a visit of SIU and are staying at the Holiday Inn. The property is very clean and our room is fairly large. The property seems fairly new. Check in was quick and painless, and the parking surrounding the hotel is well-lit and plentiful. Since we are priority club members, we were given coupons for $4 off breakfast (per person), so breakfast at the hotel restaurant will be very cheap in the morning for my family. Pool and hot tub area looks inviting, however we have not used yet. Having a fridge and microwave in our room is also a plus. Very fast wiFi. Overall a great stay so far and I would highly recommend this hotel.

This holiday inn hotel is literally sandwiched between a Hampton inn and a Confort inn. So you do have a lot of choices. What makes this holiday inn stands out? it is relatively new, clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is also a Houlihan restaurant right on the premises in case you are too tired to drive somewhere to grab a bite.
This restaurant serves breakfast as well as dinner. Breakfast was included with my hotel room because I am a priority club member otherwise it is about $5.00.
You get automatically 10% off dinner if you show your entry key card. Just be aware that the hotel rate changes depending on its booking capacity and the day of the week in case you need to extend your stay and the restaurant provides a buffet breakfast only when the hotel is about 3/4 full I was told ; othwerwise you order breakfast from a limited menu.

We stayed here for three nights and had a good time. The swimming pool was clean, warm and open late (10PM). The room service brought huge portions that lasted for at least two breakfasts. The fridge was cold, but I think that read partially my fault my pancakes froze. The building was near everything with lots of parking in the back near the door. The attached restaurant surprisingly wasn't as good as room service. The front staff were helpful and patient with everyone I saw interact with them. The room we had contained both two queen sized beds and a pull out couch. It well suited our family.

Recently while my son was competing at the World Shooting Complex, we stayed at the Holiday Inn in Carbondale. It was a great place. Nice, clean rooms. Staff was very friendly. I would recommend anyone traveling through to stay here. Also the attached restaurant was good. Family friendly too.

I wanted a clean, safe hotel to use while visiting the SIU campus with my son. I decided to book at the Holiday Inn, Carbondale even though the price was higher than the other hotels in the area. It exceeded my expectations. Since my other child was traveling with us, I booked a double queen study room, which I only saw available on the Holiday Inn website. This room had two beds and a sofa bed for only a little more money than a double. It also had a fridge and a microwave. The bathroom and the room were both very nicely decorated. It looked like a recent renovation.

Breakfast was included. I am not sure how that happened. Breakfast was not mentioned on the website, but it was very good. We had our choice of cereal and fruit, scrambled eggs, or biscuits and gravy. All came with coffee and a very generous glass of orange juice.

The pool looked nice, but small. There was an outside sunning area. This hotel was close to the SIU campus and near shopping and eating areas.

This recently renovated, well maintained hotel has a resort like feel. Modern design and furniture in the lobby and guest rooms. The front desk staff was very friendly and professional. There were complimentary cookies at check in, bottled water in the fitness center.

The beds were comfortable and he thermostat easily adjustable.
