Some minor confusion at check-in, switch of room after check-in as TV only played radio were just 2 modest points on our mid-week arrival. Location to capitol and nearly all the 'spots' was perfect and allowed us to park the car and walk. The single largest reason for the poor rating was the smell of the room. First room with...

We stayed here as it was cheap to book. The rooms were very dark with poor lighting. The paint was old and flaking on the walls. Some electrical sockets were loose on the walls and didn't work. Be aware this backs onto the railway line and the trains run through the night, so light sleepers will be woken by the...

It was super convenient (walking distance) to everything we wanted to visit - Dana Thomas house, the executive mansion, and the capitol building. Based on the pictures, I didn't realize it was a motel - not my favorite. It was clean but bad renovation job on the bathroom. Breakfast was not great - basically donuts and oatmeal. If you are...

I personally wouldn't stay here again. I was scared to touch anything in the room according to some of the past reviews. Rooms definitely need remodeling. Travelled with kids. It was a task to keep kids from touching everything in the room. So glad I brought disinfectant wipes & spray! Also, the loudness of the train woke me up twice...

We stayed here as we were on budget and just needed place to sleep that was pet friendly. Breakfast was very basic and rooms small and old as some stains on carpet and door stuck but bed was comfortable and if all you need is place to sleep it works. Also within walking distance of all downtown attractions and very...

Spent one night here with my friend and the kids. Helpful staff - kindly assisted us with coupons and directions to the nearby water park. Close to the Lincoln sites. However, there was a crumpled up washcloth (I think clean) in the kids' Murphy bed and a lots of black, curly, coarse hairs at the foot of the toilet

Went online back in April after my sister was in Springfield for work. I cannot say how this Inn appeared right in front of my eyes when searching Hotel.com and Booking.com. Due to July 4th holiday, I thought rates would be expensive. Boy was I wrong! I received a huge deal. $66 a night plus tax, $199 for 3 wonderful...

Across the street from the Governor's Mansion which has free tours Tuesday and Thursday, we stayed two nights for $120.00. We were close to the historic district and even walked on a ghost tour. The rooms are minimal but clean and perfect for those who are on a fixed budget.

The Ritz it is not. Just finished a two nights stay there and was satisfied, especially given the price. Good location so able to walk to Lincoln home and to dinner one night. We were there during the 90+ degree days so did take car to museum. Room Spartan but clean, no bugs. Breakfast covered the basics, toaster waffles and...
