A very nice Motel in Carbondale

Great place to stay!

Lovely staff. Clean and comfortable. I definitely would stay here again: it's a great value. Two things: no hooks in the bathroom to hang your clothes while you shower. Draping them on the toilet i... more

Maggie, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for us! We're happy to hear you had such a great stay, even with the less-than-perfect occurences you experienced. All of our rooms do come equiped with hooks on the backs of the bathroom doors; I assure you that our maintenance team will get one installed in the room that you stayed in as soon as possible to avoid having this issue in the future! I have already spoken to my housekeeping staff about entering your room so early without knocking - this won't be an issue in the future either. We hope that the good outweighed the bad enough to bring you back to stay with us again in the future!
