Let's start by saying I am not a big Best Western fan. A hotel chain for the independent owner looking to tie into a "BIG" name... which means NO CONSISTENCY between any hotel in the ENTIRE chain. With that said, there is a good amount of competition in Lincoln IL and they are located in a more logical address close... More

Bad-Uncle-Dave, First let me start of by saying how sorry I am that you think our hotel is over rated and that you don’t like Best Westerns. That makes me sad that we failed you on the one opportunity to show we are a great hotel chain. I know we have 3 rooms the carpet needs replaced in (unfortunately, when... More

Hotel is in process of being upgraded and has certainly moved up from bottom budget. Owners deserve kudos for hard work. Good staff, nice rooms, good breakfast, right on Rte. 66, decent pricing. Within minutes of Guzzardo's for dinner (a must). Giant Abe Lincoln sitting on redone giant covered wagon right on premises. Bowling alley in same complex.
