What a great place to stay while visiting Springfield Illinois. The PM desk person, Xavier, bent over backward to make our stay great. The room was a normal hotel room, but, very clean and well kept. I would definitely stay there again if in Springfield.

We stayed at this hotel the night before my wife was scheduled for surgery at St. John's. It was convenient, clean, and reasonably priced. The staff was wonderful, breakfast service starts at 5 a.m. Very good experience overall.

Nice, inexpensive hotel. Close to Lincoln's home and the Lincoln Museum and library. Both of these are within easy walking distance. Lincoln's tomb is close enough to walk to but would be a bit of a hike. We drove there as the weather wasn't conducive to a longer walk. Not many restaurants in the immediate area. We were in back...

Friendly/helpful concierge; free (courtesy) van (minibus) service; great décor; clean; good value; good location. A great place to stay doing Route 66. Breakfast on the basic side but not bad considering.

We had a king room which was large, with a comfortable bed and pillows. Our room was quiet and so we slept well during our stay. Breakfast was basic hot and cold, rooms were clean and staff friendly.

This was a lovely hotel near the Lincoln Museum. We could have walked if we wanted to. This is fairly new, rooms did not smell, it was quiet, breakfast was tasty. It was rather crowded in the dining room but we made do.
