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.

We stopped in to arrange for hotel rooms and a work room for a meeting. The manager on duty could not have been more accommodating. He showed us what was available, quoted prices and even let us preview one of the work rooms to see if it was suitable. We are looking forward to our meeting there in August! Free... More

After a long day of driving across I70 we were looking for a nice place to stay that was conveniently located to I70 East. Luckily the Holiday Inn still had a few rooms available when we stopped late in the evening. We booked an extended suite that worked perfect for our family of four. The extended allowed those that wanted... More

This hotel is the place that I stay when in Effingham for business travel. The front desk staff is super, the food is good, the full service bar is nice and rooms are being remodeled. There can be a little noise from the interstate but running the AC/Heat fan will keep that at bay. Call the hotel directly to reserve... More

We arrived late Saturday night. There is an outdoor fountain, manicured grounds and plenty of parking for vehicles of all sizes. The entrance (lobby/restaurant/check in) is grand, clean, has modern decor and smells great! In fact, it seems as if it's been recently renovated, the carpet smelled and looked new. Our room was great--very clean, firm beds. As always, the... More
