This property is what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Nice staff and a clean room. We left before breakfast started, but the person on duty offered us something for the road. We appreciated the coffee and yogurt and ended a nice stay. Some construction and upgrades going on at this property but no problems or noise.

We were part of a sizable wedding party, and you can only imagine the variety of needs and requests from folks from 1 to 80 years old. But the staff handled all with grace and professionalism.

We are traveling Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica and stopped in Lincoln for the night. We were happy to find a Holiday Inn Express so conveniently located between I-55 and Route 66. The IHG system was down when we tried to book our room online, but the front desk clerk honored our reservation anyway--with the bonus points. Our... More

We're just picked a hotel in Illinois for a weekend getaway. Lincoln is near Springfield, with very little to see.
