So, this review may be a bit biased, because at this point I have been sleeping on the floor of churches for 20 days in a row. And not sleeping enough and exercising a lot. So any hotel would probably feel pretty luxurious right about now!


This was my first time staying at a Drury branded hotel, and it was a pretty good experience! We stayed at the Drury Inn in Marion, IL. The rooms were pretty nice, clean, and the beds were comfortable.

The bathrooms were pretty spacious, also clean, and it was great to only share it with one other person instead of 25 for once!

We were also given vouchers for three free drinks per night, for the length of our stay (unfortunately only one night). This was a fantastic surprise after many hours out in the hot sun… hello two bloody marys and a margarita 🙂

Earlier this week, I gave an overview of the Drury Hotels Gold Key Club. There could be some good value in the program for you if you travel a lot in the southern US!
