What more could you ask for? My husband and I were traveling through the state and chose to stop for a good night's sleep. Even though it was during the Holiday Season, John at the front desk was extremely jovial. John and the "trainee" made an easy check in process. A Christmas Tree, garland with snowmen, and other amenities in... More

We have been staying here for years on our trips from OH to MO. It's always very clean and the rooms are nice. There are always fresh-baked cookies in the lobby and a very good hot breakfast. The pool is warm with a hot tub. John who is usually at the desk every night is very nice and welcoming and... More

We were made to feel very welcomed the moment we walked in the door. Room was clean, comfortable and very nice. Location was easy on/easy off the interstate and there's a great restaurant/lounge right across the parking lot. This is the only place I'll ever stay when in Effingham.

I usually stay in HIE or Hampton Inns, and this facility was probably one notch down from my typical stay. It would have ranked higher, but my room (and I believe much of the hotel) had a distinct odor, which was less than pleasant. That plus a breakfast area that was about 85 degrees made it less than excellent. I... More

I chose this place, leaning heavily on the Trip Advisor review. I was not disappointed. The room was large, clean, and nicely furnished. The price was reasonable for what we got. I heard practically no noise in the room while there. The breakfast was very good, although not quite up to the level I have had at other Country Inn... More

Arrived around 10 pm in Effingham after driving 600 miles that day from upper penisula Michigan. Was ready for a great rest. Many of the more economical hotels in the area were full as I had not made reservations, but this was perfect. It was a little more expensive than some but well worth it. You know what they say,...

Extremely friendly staff. Wonderful fresh baked cookies which were available even though we arrived very late along with milk and coffee or tea. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast has a lot of variety with real china plates and glasses.

We stayed here on our way to Branson. We arrived shortly after 3:00 pm. When we tried to check in, they didn't seem to have any rooms available. They had a full hotel the night before and were not prepared to register guests for Sunday afternoon. It took a while before they could locate one room for us that was... More

We loved, loved, loved this hotel. I made our reservations (my husband and I) with John. When we walked in to check in, John remembered my first name and addressed me by my name every time I saw him. Every area was spotless and gave us the feeling of being at home. The lobby with the fireplace gave it a... More
