Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Marion
Reviewed 6 May 2007

We stayed at this hotel for one night. We wanted a hotel with an indoor pool and other hotels were completely booked. Check-in was quick. When we entered our room, the first impression was that it was dark. Upon entering the bathroom, there was a live brown recluse spider floating in the toilet! The bathroom floor tile could use a heavy duty scrubbing. The shower stall looked like a new replacement. There were only two large towels provided. The hotel could use some remodeling but a really good cleaning is desperately needed. The pool area appeared clean. The pool is somewhat narrow. It stated capacity was 58, but there is no way you could get 58 people in it. The outdoor pool size was about 20' by 20' -- very small. When we turned the TV off to go to sleep, it was evident there was no insulation between the rooms. We could hear everything from their music playing to a child coughing. The ice machine on the first floor was emply. The machine on the second floor was out of order and the machine on the third floor was missing. The side doors of the hotel should require a key card to enter but anyone could open them. The only plus was the cost of the hotel. All in all, I guess you get what you pay for. Spend the extra 20-30 dollars and stay in a nicer hotel if possible.

The quality of service at this hotel has taken a precipitous nosedive since Miss Patti's sold it. The staff is as friendly and helpful as ever, considering, but the manager is uppity and downright rude. The continental breakfast is scanty, to say the least, room accomodations are in poor working order, and not enough staff is on duty for proper operation of the hotel. We'll be looking at different hotels in future trips downstate.

Miss Patties is being remodeled, but in the meantime it is pretty tacky. The parking lot was littered with trash, the pool and hot tub were merky, the common areas were not air conditioned, and the room we were in had few of the advertised amenities. Maybe this is considered a three star hotel in India, but certainly not here in Illinois.
