I got the Lincoln 2 day package and stayed at one of the BEST hotels I've ever been to. First of all, the room was spacious with a little kitchen in it. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. They had a complimentary shuttle service to the Lincoln sites which picked us up and dropped us off!! The... More

Brought my cousin to Springfield for surgery and took a chance on Carpenter Street Hotel because of its close proximity to Memorial Medical Center. I could not have been more pleased with both the room or the staff. The shuttle service to the hospital was heavenly as it kept me and my car out of the crazy construction that is... More

I booked this hotel based on it's location and price and I couldn't have made a better choice. We had already visited the Lincoln Tomb but wanted to leave the car at the hotel and look at everything else in Springfield. At check in we were greeted by the very pleasant staff and told about the complimentary breakfast and shuttle.... More

Stayed overnight for a meeting in Springfield. Pleasant hotel, nice room, decent continental breakfast, good parking, and near the Lincoln historical area in central Springfield. Walking distance. Also next to hospital and medical center. I would definitely stay again. Attractive price.

Stayed one Sunday night during what seemed like a quiet weekend in Springfield. The staff was friendly, the room clean, the beds very comfortable and the rate reasonable. Exactly what one wants. The buffet breakfast was as good or better than you can expect for free, nothing fancy but a nice fresh selection. Ask for discounted tickets if you are... More

One night stay, with no problem with making the reservation. Check-in was easy, prompt and problem free. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Location was beyond belief, in the center of Springfield's Lincoln history section, easily within walking distance to most of the museums and presidential library, and only a few blocks drive to the Lincoln Tomb. First time in... More

I was looking for a budget friendly hotel, with free internet, parking, and breakfast within walking distance of the downtown area - this hotel did hit on all those marks. The complimentary shuttle was a bonus and something other hotels do not offer. The room was spacious and clean with a fridge and microwave (you need to ask for this... More

We were looking for a hotel that was within walking distance of downtown. I chose this hotel because of location plus free parking and free breakfast. When we arrived I was told there was only one way to enter the hotel and to not prop the backdoor because the homeless in the area would come in. I asked a couple... More
