I stayed here for about a week for work and it was just fine. I liked the tall ceilings on the first floor. I was in room 104 which is at the end of the hall so there was some noise from people entering and exiting at times. I was also next door to the housekeeping closet and they like... More

Traveling west on I-70 in the late evening we were turned away from multiple hotels in Terre Haute, Ind., due to "homecoming" at colleges in town. Sixty six miles down the road we took a chance at a country Inn and Suites in Effingham. "I have one room left," said the desk clerk. The price? $105 (plus tax.). Sold. What... More

This hotel is the cleanest one I've ever stayed at. The bathroom was shining. The staff was both efficient and helpful. I will definitely stay there again. The carpet is new and the towels we used were soft, they provide soap, shampoo and hand lotion each day and keep everything spotless for you. If you forget anything they have one... More

Have stayed 3 times in 12 months on cross-country drives. Hotel has always been clean, staff friendly & professional. All the hotels in Effingham seem to line the Interstate, so this is as quiet (traffic noise) as any of them.

The hotel was clean, however, it was evident that it was in need of up-dating... which was in the process of just that! The staff was friendly. A nice touch was the coffee, juice and cookies that were offered twenty-four hours a day! For breakfast, there was a plentiful selection of hot and cold choices that included fruits, hot chicken...
