We choose Effingham as the sight for our sibling reunion on Aug 15 -17th, solely because of it's location (midway between Columbus Ohio and KC Missouri). Most of us ended up staying at the Holiday Inn. We had assorted family sizes, configurations, requirements and ages and the Holiday Inn ended up being a clean and comfortable fit for everyone. The...

Enjoyed a very nice and comfortable night at this hotel. We were on the third floor and it was quiet. Every area of the hotel was spotless. I have never been a fan of hotel dining but the food was good and at an affordable price. I would recommend this hotel for travelers with and without children.

I was on the way home to Canada from New Mexico and this place looked good on Tripadvisor. From the moment I drove up, it was clearly a pretty sweet Inn. The young fellow at the front desk was friendly, happy and helpful. The lobby and adjoining restaurant area had a high end look to them, but I didn't feel... More

The first staff member that comes to mind is Eric. Extremely professional over the phone and when my family and I arrived. We were quickly checked in with no hiccups. The rooms were in good order and cleanliness was exceptional. I was expecting to find something wrong, but that didn't happen until the next morning during breakfast. The restaurant service... More

We booked one of the last Queen rooms on an extremely busy weekend, and were upgraded to a King room with whirlpool for free by the very kind manager. The room was clean, comfortable, and made our days on the road so much better. Check out is at a luxurious 12 noon. Would definitely recommend!

A clean room with good lighting and apparently freshly renovated spaces were a welcome stop on a road trip with a 4-yr old grandson. The pool was warm enough for him to be happy and not too big that we had to worry. The onsite restaurant offered good comfort food in a fresh space. While we had no time for... More

A recent renovation leaves this very up to date. Rooms were fresh and clean just as the outside of this building. Easy access from the freeway, a Walmart across the street and a Cracker Barrel just down the street takes care of anything you need for the evening.
