My fiance and I have stayed at this location several times over the past two years. It had become our favorite local place to stay, and we considered it our home away from home.

I was impressed by how hard the staff worked to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The hotel is comfortable and clean. There were many little touches that made is a step up from most other Holiday Inns. The only real downside is that there is not much in walking distance from the hotel.

This hotel is a fantastic place to stay when in Carbondale. It has a great restaurant/bar (Fat Bottom Betty's). Ask for the free breakfast vouchers. The pool is very nice, as is the business center. Free wireless. And only about 4 mi. to the university, and near major shopping/restaurants. Definitely the classiest place to stay in that area--we even had...
