We were driving across country and stopped along the interstate. This hotel was better than expected for all the places I've stayed while driving across country. (I've done it more than a few times!) The front desk person was very friendly, and the fresh baked cookies in the lobby were a nice touch.

We got a room here one night when we just couldn't drive any further. We chose this hotel simply because it had the lowest price of all of the similar hotels in the area. I was expecting to be underwhelmed by the cleanliness, service, and food. I was completely wrong on all accounts. We were greeted by a very nice... More

Stayed at the hotel because of the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Hotel is right off the Interstate and easy to find. Room was very clean which is very important to us, number one criteria. Check in was a breeze and the clerk was friendly and very helpful. There are plenty of restaurants in the immediate area, TGIF, Rudy Tuesday, Lone... More

Came to Effingham to see Ron White perform at EPC. Live about 2 hours away so we decided to stay overnight. Checked in with John at the front desk. Read the other reviews and you get the picture that John really gives it the extra star on ratings. He has an answer for every question and a great sense of... More

My son's football team had a playoff game 4 hours from our home. Instead of driving all the way back home, we chose to stay in Effingham to reduce our travel time on Sunday. I had researched hotels on Trip Advisor and the reviews for this hotel and it's lower price than its competitors sealed the deal. We had a... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Even though we had only reserved a regular room with 2 queen beds, somehow we ended up with a suite. We're guessing that the man at the front desk who checked us in gave it to us in an effort to put us in the quietest part of the hotel. He told us outright that... More

We usually don't stay in Country Inn & Suites, but the Holiday Inn Express in Effingham, that we had stayed at a few years ago, was booked, so thought we'd give it a try. Upon check-in, John, the person at the front desk, was very pleasant and funny. He asked if I was a Goldpoints member and I said no,... More

We have stayed several times in this hotel. We have not been disappointed in any stays. Only thing I can think of is maybe improve the pillows, they were a little on the flat/small side. Everything else was OK.

Finally--an indoor pool that was perfectly heated! Of the 16 motel rooms we stayed in over the last 8 weeks, this was the first indoor pool that wasn't chilly. Pool is on small side, but hot tub is large, front desk staff is pleasant, check-in is quick. Suite was large and beds were comfortable. Good value for money paid. In... More

Stayed here at the last minute due to bad hotel the night before. Turns out I will stay at a Country Inn & Suites anytime! Staff were friendly, rooms were gorgeous, breakfast was filling.
