Room was very comfortable, breakfast area has received new setup and is nicely done. Have stayed there many times in pass 10 years and have seen many improvements. If you need a place to stay this has easy access and close to food and shopping for a somewhat small community.

Stayed here one night with family on the way to St. Louis. Hotel was well maintained and room was comfortable. Easily accessible location for this town. Not the most modern place I've ever stayed but very nice and friendly staff. Good shower as well.

I stay at this Best Western every year for my family reunion at a local park on Memorial Day weekend. I have no complaints on this hotel with the exception of I wish it had a pool. The staff is always friendly, and helpful. The rooms are clean and if there is a problem they attend to it right away.... More

I was impressed by the cleanliness of this motel, especially the bathroom!! The bathtub was very clean, the bed linens were very clean, also! It was so nice to finally get to stay at a nice, clean motel.

This is our second stay and this trip we stayed in the first floor king suite which was very spacious, roomy. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only negatives were the bathroom could use a coat of paint and some wall décor, very dated. The other negative were the people above us in the 2nd... More

We are staying here for 4 days, and it happens to be in the middle of the horrible blizzard. We are here visiting very elderly relatives that live about a mile and a half away. We came back at 3:00 for a nap, and left our car under the portico (since the hotel is at minimum occupancy and we would... More

Everything very good. Got tired of breakfast fare after a couple days, so ate at local restaurant. Had extreme difficulty with the bath area, being somewhat handicapped. No safety bars in shower to grasp. Couldn't get out of tub without help. Toilet bowl too small for anyone a little on the large size. It's like a "teacup". Location of bowl... More

I had to travel to southern Illinois for business. This was my only real option; it is a good value at under 80 per night and the rooms were clean. The front desk was friendly and the proximity to other towns (Olney, Effingham) was key for me so this was a central location. You won't find another chain hotel for... More

Average hotel, but the best hotel in Flora. Room is good, with microwave and refrigerator. Poor beakfast selection. No hot food, other than biskets and gravy. Nearest other good hotels are in Salem, Olney, or Effingham.

My husband and I chose to stay here two nights for a family wedding that was taking place in nearby Effingham. In addition, so did my two brothers and their families and my parents. This was a nice and affordable accommodation for all of us, compared to $125-$150 (nightly rate) hotel rooms or completely booked hotels in Effingham. Our room,... More
