The property is the most affordable hotel in the downtown capitol area (I'm not counting the Mansion View, which is cheaper but rapidly going downhill). It's within easy walking distance of both of Springfield's major hospitals and the Lincoln Museum/Old State Capitol complex downtown. The rooms are quite nice although the commons areas could be larger. However, out-of-towners should know... More

We wanted to stay in downtown Springfield to be in walking distance of all the Lincoln historical sites. The Carpenter Street Hotel, two or three blocks from the Lincoln Museum and Union Station was perfect. Our room was comfy and spacious. The reasonable price included a well-stocked hot breakfast bar. Desk clerk, Michelle, was friendly, helpful, and efficient. She told... More

Recently my husband was requiring surgery at Memorial Hospital in Springfield, Illinois. The hospital staff told us that the Carpenter Street Hotel offered discounts to potential hospital patients. We checked; the rate was $74 per night. Hooray! The property is about 3 minutes from Memorial Hospital and basically across the street from St. John's Hospital. The CSH is very plain... More

We stayed at the Carpenter Street Hotel in Springfield because of its central location to meet our interest. Remarkably, it compares favorably to a Hampton Inn, but this location is the only one.
