All of these reviews are absolutely true. We were suckered into staying here because it was graduation weekend and there were no other openings at a reasonable price. What is most disturbing is that this place has been getting horrible reviews since at least 2008, yet it's still in business with apparently the same management. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!

We arrived in Carbondale the weekend of the local university graduation only to find that our housing arrangements with a friend had fallen through. There were very few rooms left in the area. As such, we were forced into spending money that we did not have just to have a place to sleep and shower. We decided to stay at... More

In Carbondale on Main street. I was there during graduation so there were no other option because everything was booked. This was by far the worse hotel I have ever visited and I travel a lot! The 1st room they gave us was infested with BUGS between the mattresses and in the bathroom. The 2nd room wasn't much better. There... More

I have been staying in Best Inns for over thirty years and will never again! I just wish I had checked here before making this trip. It would take the next hour to tell all that was deficient about the rooms. It would only take one call from the health department to close this "joint". I hope for the sake... More

Hello, on Friday, April 17th I checked into a Best Value Inn in Carbondale, IL. I was given a room that I found (and anyone would find) filthy. The room had clearly been smoked in and had a thick musty smoky smell that permeated everything in it. There was no fitted sheet on the bed, only a filthy, smelly, blue... More

I stayed at this place on October 17, 2008. The first room they gave me was suppose to be non-smoking, but when I walked in the smoke smell was overwhelming. Needless to say, I changed rooms, but it was not much better. The room was dirty, and I had to pick between the two full size beds as to which... More

Believe the bad reviews! This property is way past its prime and the management doesn't care. Rooms are dirty, drywall patches everywhere, big spots on the carpet, cigarette burns on the doors and linens, sagging mattresss....every negative comment that you've read on this page is true. AVOID!!
