Stayed here after a wedding reception at the Keller Convention Center. Hotel is directly connected to the convention center which was very convenient. All parts of the hotel are very clean and up to date. Hotel is just off of the main exit in Effingham so access is easy and everything you need is nearby including shopping, gas stations, fast...

Effingham has a number of hotels available for travelers, but I would strongly recommend stopping your search right here. Lovely decor, food & beverage outlets available, shopping & dining within walking distance and a friendly and warm group of hospitality professionals. Hat's off to Heather & Jess - and the extraordinary housekeeping team - for making our stay simply wonderful!

Perhaps the best hotel we have ever stayed. Service was outstanding!! Room was perfect, especially the pillows!! Everyone from the bartender, to the waitress, to the front desk to the in-house service people could not have been nicer. Clearly they must like their jobs!!

We stayed here for one night. While the hotel, property and location is nice, we have stayed at better hotels for less than the cost of our room here. We'd probably try the nearby Hampton Inn next time. The lobby is beautiful and our fourth-floor room was clean but nothing spectacular. The hair dryer in our room was broken (we... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this facility was so much more than a hotel. Not only was it clean and smoke free, but it was also comfortable. I don't think I've ever seen so many pillows on a bed...5! The towels were not thread-bare either. The people at the hotel (a convention facility) were very friendly and helpful... More

Stayed here April 2015. The hotel was clean and fresh everywhere. It is near several restaurants that are in walking distance. Staff was very friendly. The restaurant and lounge looked good but I did not visit either as they were both packed.

This Holiday Inn has been recently renovated. The lobby and rooms are beautiful. Friendly staff helped make the business trip a little less tiring. Nice, small business center and a fitness center to boot. Looking forward to a drink in the lovely bar tonight.
