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.

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

We happened upon this hotel by reading reviews. It was everything nice that was said about it. Close to all downtown attractions, clean, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, quiet and an ok breakfast. The front desk was always very friendly and accommodating. What more can be said? We highly recommend it!

They do give a discounted rate if you have someone in St. John's Hospital which is very nice! I am sorry to say the room was not clean. Went to plug in my charger and found two food wrappers behind nightstand. That tells me they do not do a thorough cleaning job.

Very convenient location if you are coming to Springfield and the Lincoln attractions are your focus. Very close to Museum, Lincoln Library, Lincoln and Herndon Law Office, Lincoln Home. Lincoln Memorial not far away. Old State Capital building is a real pleasure too. Check-in was super easy and quick. I had reservations for two rooms (friends were traveling with us)... More

This hotel is a block away from the Lincoln Museum and Library! There are lots of restaurants and other historical points of interest within blocks. Good service, nice breakfast, and very helpful daytime front desk girl!!!

Stopped over one night on our way to St. Louis. Room was very clean, nicely appointed, beds were comfy and staff was helpful and friendly!! Great location, nearby to all the historic sites, specifically the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum!! They offered a package that included tickets to the museum which was nice. We highly recommend the 'Ghosts' show at the... More

This was a GREAT hotel to stay in while in Springfield. My friend and I got the Lincoln package which included two tickets to the museum with our stay. We were also greeted with gift packs of snacks and water. I figured we saved close to 80.00 a night with our stay here versus other hotels. There is not a... More

I stayed at the Carpenter Street Hotel May 5th through the 7th after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I wasn't disappointed! The staff were all very pleasant and helpful during my stay. Both Tabitha and Rebecca were excellent to deal with at the front desk and the lady who drove the shuttle was nice as well. The property itself is... More
