We stayed here on our drive to Florida. The location was good and overall it was a good value. We arrived late and the one thing I thought was strange is that the door at the back of the hotel was locked and we couldn't even use our card to get in to bring our luggage in. I like that... More

America's Best Inn is a great value. I paid $45.00 + tax (AAA rate); regular rate is $55.00, still a good value. They have clean rooms with good wi-fi, microwave, fridge, and a decent TV with a good selection of channels. I believe the entire property is smoke-free. They also have an indoor swimming pool. The breakfast is good, and... More

This hotel has a courteous staff. It also has nice clean functional rooms, with comfortable beds and they provide a great breakfast. This was one of the least expensive places we stayed and certainly one of the best! I heartily recommend this a a great place to stay while traveling through Illinois.

I had never stayed in this hotel but based on this experience, I will consider it again. The room was generally very clean and comfortable and the price was very affordable.

At Exit 159 Off I-57 in Effingham, Illinois, this is an enhanced value proposition. Price-wise, my king bedded room was comparable to a Red Roof Inn standard king, but amenity-wise it was far superior, including: larger room overall, larger bath, larger towels, refrig, micro, easy chair, larger desk and in-room coffee maker. A continental breakfast (with the make-your-own-waffle feature along... More

In general it is a good hotel, convenient for resting one night , has all amenities even an inner pool ( I didn't use it) , in my experience I noticed one pillow smelled like cigarette smoke , but in general the rest of the room was OK !

We had a coupon from a motel book and paid $45 plus tax for 2. Room was clean and didn't smell. We were only staying 9 hours so definitely was fine for us. Staff was friendly and allowed us to look at the room prior to paying.

Finding this hotel was tricky. You have to turn on an unmarked road, and sort of wind your way back to the hotel. It's right next to the highway, but it's not obvious how to get there. I think this hotel was a nice place at one time, but it has definitely seen better days. The room was old and... More
