This Hilton is a great choice if you're staying in Effingham with kids. Clean, quiet, great breakfast -- you can't go wrong.

Excellent service, very clean (I am a germaphobe nurse ), excellent cook to order breakfast buffet at reasonable price. The only negative was not being able to swim long. After all day in the car, my daughter needed to burn some energy. If you are not planning to swim, 5 stars easy...

We don't usually choose Garden Inns when traveling, but since we like Hilton properties and didn't have a lot of choice -- other Hilton properties in Effingham, IL. were either booked or being renovated when we were traveling in August -- we chose the Garden Inn. From the moment we entered the lobby, we knew we were somewhere special. Sun... More

We wanted to take off from the City for a nice road trip with no destination in mind. We ended up in Effingham, ready for a nice meal and decent accommodations. I read the reviews about the Hilton Garden Inn and went online to book it as we rolled into town. The website said they were full, but we walked... More

I stayed here a few times for work while traveling to and from St. Louis. This is a very nice hotel for an HGI that is pretty far removed from big cities. It is in a great location as far as food, quick shopping, and there is even a bowling alley attached with really cheap drinks if you like. There... More

This is the highest quality hotel in Effingham. This hotel is also a poor value. There are several chain hotels in the area that offer similar service, and anyone not on business or not needing the honor points would be incentivised to go with the best price in town, as they are generally comparable. The nearly $9 breakfast is a... More

While in the middle of the complex where I-57 crosses I-95, with all the fast food restaurants and every hotel brand you have ever heard of (and some you certainly have not), The Hilton Garden Inn was a surprize for us when we recently stayed there for a high school reunion for my wife. The rooms in the hotel were... More

We spent one night at the Hilton Garden Inn in Effingham. I reserved a “1 Bedroom Suite” which I expected to be like most Hilton properties, where the bedroom is separated from the rest of the suite by a door. I realize there are many other hotel chains where a “suite” can mean nothing more separate sitting and sleeping areas... More
