The Heritage Motel is clean and quiet as advertised and luckily placed in a nice area close to shopping and Amtrak station for travelers or tourist. The housekeeper is so lovely and generous she makes sure you are comfortable while a guest @ The Heritage..

Great stay! Couldn't advertise any better! Would recommend anyone who is looking for a great deal that is quiet and clean. The owner and staff were all extremely accommodating is to me! Also, family owned! I stayed there for an entire month and couldn't tell you anything bad

Stayed here during our cross-country bicycle trip on the TransAmerica since it goes through Carbondale. The owner was very generous to save a large room for three of us to share for one night. Rates were reasonable and the room was clean and comfortable with good air

I'll admit I am a hotel snob, but there is something about this quaint simple hotel. This is your mom and pop hotel. It is extremely clean and quiet. The owner is kind, and goes out of his way to be helpful. Yes, it is very 1950ish, but it has free internet, free bottle water,

family and I stayed at the Heritage Motel back during SIU graduation. Never again. Run down place needs torn down. Buildings look like they could cave in anytime. Carpet is old, dirty and outdated. Old toilets that run forever. Looks like they allow just about anybody to stay

Most likely you would have been pleased with the $140 per night hotels during graduation but if your reservation was made days prior to graduation having been unable to find any franchised hotels, then you get what is left. We have several levels of rooms (all are clean and quiet) but many are smoking rooms which are not updated. Our building while in the 50s era, that is what is legendary about it separate private entrances in four different buildings where you can park in front of your guest room. However, it is well maintained and preserved in line with the low pricing. Had we had any room vacant during that sold out wkend you could have changed rooms if you just brought it to our attention. As for quality of our guests, we have a mix of quiet guests we do not discriminate against anyone and quite frankly, I am not sure what street people you are talking about. We are in the best part of town and anyone in Carbondale will tell you that. It is the safe part and preferred west side of town. Sorry we could not please you but next time let me know if and when you are on the premises.

Do you rent by the month.
