We went there last week to see the Lincoln Museum and the hotel is just few blocks away. We only took Amtrak from Chicago to Springfield, IL and walked around few blocks to the hotel. It was such an amazing and rewarding experience to visit the museum at the same time to stroll around the Capitol Downtown. The area is... More

Reasons not a better review: beds- holy hell uncomfortable. Like a waterbed. Fitting sheet will not stay on. Both mornings awoke with 3/4 of the mattress bare. Hot water- they don't believe in hot water. Took shower on full hot and it was quite a bit cooler than my normal. Wife ran a bath first night , climbed in and... More

We did the TravelZoo deal for the State House Inn. It was a great value. The hotel (common space) and our room was spotless. The bed was comfortable. The futon and chair in the sitting room were a little low and uncomfortable. The breakfast was delicious (the two ladies working the breakfast were wonderful). The free drinks were a plus.... More

We rented 2 rooms and specifically called in advance to request adjoining. Upon arriving, I was told there were no adjoining available. My husband and I had to split up and sleep in seperate rooms with our kids. Aside from that, the hotel is in a great location for touring the Lincoln sites. There are several restaurants within walking distance.... More

I stayed here on my way to St Louis. The room was okay but it seemed really small. The beds weren't particular comfortable. They use the memory foam mattresses that I have trouble sleeping on due to their softness. The bathrooms, however, are top notch. Housekeeping keeps the rooms clean but the furnishings aren't the greatest. At this point, I... More

Clean rooms friendly staff great location. If you have an event at the Prairie Convention Center and don't want the hassles of finding parking this is either walking distance in good weather or cab ride for just under $5. I would recommend taking bikes to see some of the sites. Would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel on a Travel Zoo deal that included our room, two tickets for the Abraham Lincoln Museum, 4 drinks in the No Name bar, for $89. The only fly in the ointment here was the check-in. I had printed out the emails I received from Travel Zoo, confirming my purchase, and thought that was all I... More
