Clean spacious room with everything we needed for a pleasant overnight stay. The breakfast was well stocked with a good selection of items. Easy to find and close to I-55 made the stay convenient and quick!!

Really enjoyed our stay. It was an overnight jaunt planned in short notice. We enjoyed our king suite with separate hide-a-bed area for one of the kids who accompanied us. I enjoyed the relaxing breakfast and a swim in the pool, while my husband attended a business meeting. It was a treat. A variety of shopping and restaurants all within... More

We weren't greeted by name or recognized as Priority Club members (admittedly, very low point balance, but still!). Our room was clean and quiet and we didn't notice any highway noise, although located close to I-55. Breakfast area clean and met our needs perfectly. Enjoyed dinner at a local Italian restaurant that we found on the web. My only suggestion,... More

Everything looked new. The room was clean and functional. Breakfast was good. My only issue was the loudness of the floors and the overall lack of a "sound" feel or quietness to the structure. A little more insulation would have been appreciated!!! The tiled floor by the room entrance looked nice but was loud and I could hear the person... More

My room was clean, quiet, comfortable and updated. This was a very good value for the price. I had business in Springfield and found all of the nearby hotels booked on the night I wanted to stay. HIE Lincoln had easy access to the interstate. I had no problem making the 30 minute drive to Springfield for my appointment in... More

Our room was clean, updated, quiet and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable. We stayed 3 days and very much appreciated the comfort level of our room. The maid service was a little random as one day they hadn't been to the room yet by 3pm. It's not that big of deal but kind of nice to know a time-frame (like... More

Hello Bea, Thank you very much for taking the time to review the hotel! I appreciate the feedback. I can understand the question of time-frame for housekeeping services. That can sometimes be hard to predict, as housekeepers have a different number of rooms to clean every day. It can be very unpredictable. However, we are happy to meet any special... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, for our needs. Rooms were very clean.Me and my wife travel to Missouri about five times a year and this is our mid-way point that we stop at each time.Rates are good and we enjoy going to Russel-stover and the Habachi grill.

Upon arrival the outer appearance was that of your standard Holiday Inn Express. The ladies at the front desk were both incredibly nice. Th kids LOVED the cookies next to the front desk. The rooms were nice--queen sized beds, table, two extra chairs, bathroom with detached sink which was outside in the room, and plenty of lighting. The kids enjoyed... More
