Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Marion Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Marion, IA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Marion hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Marion was named after Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion and is unique in that it was founded as the county seat before anyone resided there. The land was surveyed in 1839 and lots were auctioned off, which helped establish Marion as a budding business center in Linn County. By 1855, Marion's population reached 1,500. Once the railroad was established in 1864, the town became an important hub for the Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway, which further helped attract residents and businesses alike.

Today, Marion is a family-oriented community with two large school districts and various city parks. City Square Park hosts the nationally acclaimed Marion Arts Festival each summer, and family-friendly activities abound throughout the year. No matter your reasons for visiting, you'll discover plenty to do throughout the community — all you need is the right hotel to serve as the perfect home base.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Marion, IA?

The best time to visit Marion is in the spring and fall. The shoulder seasons experience fewer tourist crowds, which can make your visit more enjoyable. Average highs hover in the low- to mid-70s in May and September, giving you the perfect opportunity to explore the outdoors. Best of all, hotel rates are fairly low during the off-season. You can take advantage of all the area's attractions, restaurants, and shopping experiences without paying top dollar for your hotel.

Summer is peak tourist season in Marion, which comes with its own advantages. Despite higher hotel rates, summer kicks off with some amazing annual events, including Uptown Marion Market, Marion By Moonlight, the Marion Big Band “Swingin' At Sunset” concert series, and Eat. Drink. & Be Marion: Pub Crawl. Expect average highs in the mid-80s all summer long.

Most visitors stay away from Marion during the winter months. Average lows stay in the teens from December through February, making it difficult to sightsee.
