We were on our way back to Wisconsin from Orlando and had preplanned to stop over in southern Illinois. I chose HIE Marion after reading all the positive reviews. I was very pleased with the experience. I found this location was very new, spotlessly clean, and ultra modern. The parking was ample and well lit. The front desk was staffed with ample people so I did not have to wait. Josh was very courteous at check in and found my reservation immediately. He even called our room to ensure all was in order a few minutes later. It seems like a little thing, but they have really nice luggage carts to use.
The room was smaller but very well designed for efficiency. The beds were two full sized with 4 pillows each. Each bed had a lamp plus a little bendable reading lamp.The fridge and micro was hidden in a cabinet. TV looked to be a wall mounted 32 inch HD and was good. Channel selection was also good.
If I had been a business traveler I would have been impressed with work station in room with good wifi and a LAN cable. Also had a business room downstairs.
Breakfast was free and hot in the morning. Didn't use the pool. I would definitely stay here again! Great job staff!
