Easy access from exit 63 on Route 70. Friendly staff, very clean, microwave, and mini-fridge. Was within walking distance of fast food such as Wendy's. Close to gas station. Great value! I recommend Jay's Inn.

We were looking for a clean, comfortable room for a reasonable price and we found it here. The staff was very accommodating and the room was just what we wanted - clean and comfortable beds, clean bathroom, convenient location and good value. No frills but that is not what we needed for a one night stay. We were very pleased... More

We had planned on traveling to Effingham before we stopped, but my husband got sick, so I pulled into Jay's Inn parking lot to see if anything was available. Happily, there was. The room had a king size bed, a double recliner couch, a microwave, a refrigerator, coffee, and a flat screen TV. Plus, there was a table and two... More

What a pleasant surprise. A large clean room, comfortable bed, a microwave, a refrigerator, a coffeemaker, WIFI and a sofa, all for less than $50.00. I would recommend this to anyone who is traveling in the area. Plenty of parking and several restaurants nearby.

On our road trip back from Missouri we ended up staying at Jay's Inn! Didn't look like much from the outside, but appearances can be deceiving. For less than $50/night (tax included) I had a large room with a queen size bed, large leather sofa and a good sized tv. There was also a fridge, microwave and coffee maker (including... More

This was the second year in a row that my friend and I stayed at Jay's Inn when we travel to Vandalia for the Civil War ball. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable. My friend also appreciated the fact that she could take her little dog.

Jay's Inn is a rustic Inn with no frills. It is family owned and quiet. If you want an inexpensive place to stay with a clean room that allows pets for free, this is the place. There are nearby restaurants for meals. The room comes with a microwave and refrigerator if you want to bring you own food. I have... More

Driving late in the night, atleast 3 hours behind schedule I came to the conclusion I needed to stop for a place to sleep. I saw two hotels right off the highway. The first one had 3 cars, Jay's had several. I called and got a great rate. The lady working the overnight shift was my first impression of this... More
