My wife and I came to Ohio from South Carolina to see our Grandchildren and our kids. This is our vacation. I took two weeks from work off and drove here to this particular hotel because we have stayed here before. While it was not fantastic it was and is pet friendly and I have two dogs. On our 1st...

I would not recommend staying here. All in all, it was a very bad experience. First, the Internet did not work at all (although advertised). We stayed two nights and had no reliable connection at any time. Walked up to the reception and talked to the night-clerk about it. He was aware of the issue and told me that he... More

The people who own and work here are inconsiderate and rude!!!! They lied about their "free" wi-fi!!! It didn't work, then transferred us to a room that someone was already IN!!! They would not refund us our money back and made our stay unbearable!!!! I would NEVER stay here again!!!!!!

If you require bourgeois digs with spare Scandinavian furnishings and free-range yogurt in the morning, perhaps you would be better served by a much more expensive place in Urbana-Champaign, but Lincoln Lodge is actually a well-maintained hotel that betrays its 1960's style, with wood paneling and faux pioneer furnishings in the lobby that are oddly stylish. The bed was fine,... More

I needed a room for the night and this hotel was fine. Room was clean. It was conveniently located near the hospital I was visiting. No frills but at $60 a night I was pleased. Towels were thin. I needed a couple to dry off. Newer TV. I would stay again if I have to visit someone nearby.

I stayed at this hotel because everywhere else was booked for the day that I needed to be Urbana. THis was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made. 1)When checking into the hotel, the clerk initially gave me the keycard for the wrong room. My daughter, who I was traveling with, dubbed the clerk as creepy...and he was.... More

Really nice lounge, rustic style, older style rooms but very well maintained. I like non-chain, particularly if they are a little unusual, and this place fits the bill. I got in really late but there are a couple all night fast food across the street and a convenience store at the end of the block. Lots of character- reminiscent of... More

Friendly, super clean, comfy beds and bedding. What else do you need? The bathroom was spic and span. There was plenty of desk space for my laptop. The TV remote was a little sluggish. The staff was helpful in suggesting nearby restaurants, and we ate at a local BBQ place. I don't know how they would have handled complaints, because... More

The Lincoln Lodge could be an ok place to stay (and by ok I mean it is bare minimum adequate--there are beds and a bathroom, nothing fancy but they function). However, should you have something go wrong, it becomes an absolutely terrible place to stay due to the poor level of customer service provided. My experience with Lincoln Lodge began... More
