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 about the Heritage Motel.

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 conditioning. The owner told us that Bob Dylan had stayed in our room... More

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, good linens, clean and air... More

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 Carpet is old, dirty and outdated.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 there because I saw several street people coming and going. A couple... More

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... More

This is an extremely quiet, clean motel. It is a small family owned establishment, and it shows through the service you receive. We had a large, spacious room that has a kitchenette with appliances such as a coffee maker and even toaster. If you are looking for personalized service, look no further. This is the only place we will stay... More

People who deduct stars for infrastructure must not comprehend the concept of family-owned 1-star motels. They don't have the backing of a franchise, and they make up for that loss of financial backing in other ways. No exception here. The owner was very nice and up-front. No bait-and-switch: took me to the room to inspect before charging my card. Room... More

We stayed here for one night recently, and it just was not quite all that. I will say that the staff were very nice. And it was apparent that effort had gone into cleaning the room. The linens and towels were clean. However the infrastructure is just really sadly lacking. The bed was in need of replacement, there were places... More

A nice clean old fashioned motor motel close to everything. Very safe environment and great location on west side of downtown....great grassy area in back with picnic table and grille and rabbits who live on premises....just a treat in old time hospitality. Yes, we will be back on next visit to SIU.

We stayed last night at The Heritage Motel. The Heritage is like a step back in time, complete with an actual key on a key chain! The owner was more than accommodating and very friendly.

Pretty much as advertised, independently run small motel, good price, clean, and friendly owner. Stayed here one night. Its not going to be the standard of the hotels that cost more than twice as much but in its price range certainly a better bet than some generic chain which are the other options in town at this price point.
