“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

This Super 8 is apparently the most upscale motel in little Du Quoin, and there's nothing actually wrong with it -- I found it clean and comfortable, and got a good night's sleep. However, it is (as one might expect from a Super 8) noticeably less luxurious than a Hampton or Holiday Inn might be. The lobby is not a place you'd want to spend time relaxing, the towels were on the skimpy side, even the kleenex seemed to be a flimsy brand. And the breakfast wasn't anything I felt impelled to stick around and eat.

Service at the front desk was friendly and perfectly adequate, and I noticed there was a guest laundry room, though I didn't have time to make use of it. On the down side, this was the only hotel I've ever stayed at where I never did figure out how to make the shower work.

Stayed April 2012, travelled solo

I had stayed here years ago and thought it would be a good place to come back to. We walked in and the place smelled like a mix of dirty feet and bug spray. The room looked picked up and vacumed, but by no means was it clean. Our socks stuck to the carpeting it was so dirty. The chairs were so filthy I wouldnt sit on them. We were so disgusted we cut our visit short and came home.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

I stayed for a couple of days and found the staff to be the friendliest people I have ever met. The room was very similar to a Hilton I stayed at a while back. The breakfast was excellent and free! There was a huge refrigerator and microwave. The room was always extremely clean. The WiFi was very fast and free as well. I received better service here than I have had at some top rate hotels. On top of all of that, the price was lower than any place I have stayed at before. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the area.

i would never stay at this place again or tell my family and friends to stay there as well. i tried to cancel because i had to leave due to personal reasons and they would not refund my money. i booked with orbitz, got my confirmation number but did not need to check my itinerary. on the itinerary, is the notice about the cancellation policy and it was definitely not on the form that i had filled out. orbitz and super 8 are going back and forth on who to blame. i believe it is bull crap to do such a thing especially during these hard economic times. it wasnt like the place was booked solid and they should not make money that way. it is nothing but a scam and i still have not gotten my money back. word to the wise do not stay here or any super 8 for that matter if they all follow the same policy. this place can go (--)! if you know what i mean. p.s. i want my money back!

There is not much of a selection for Hotels in DuQuoin--we needed a place to stay during the state fair. The hotel was quite when we were there and the room was spacious but this is a "bare bones" type property. It is an older hotel and the carpet is worn and the linens threadbare but overall it was clean and felt safe. There is a continental breakfast in the morning but nothing more than stale pastries and some cereal. If you go 30 minutes or more to carbondale or marion there is a larger selection of hotels but we wanted to be close as possible to the fair. It is too far to walk but short drive (mile) from the fairgrounds.

  • Liked — Proximity to fairgrounds
  • Disliked — Older hotel, very limited service, no internet
