The State House Inn was just ideal for my weekend in Springfield. Being a lifelong resident of Illinois, I have never spent much time in our capital city. My focus was to visit the Lincoln Museum and related sites and Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana-Thomas House. My stay was part of a package deal which included admission to the museum as... More

All the reviews say "retro", but until you get here it is hard to understand that this hotel has really embraced the mid-century. You can imagine The No-Name Bar in the lobby packed with Pan-Am stews, Illinois politico-staffers and cigarette smoke, all discussing how horrible Fidel is and "did you see who was on Sullivan last week?" Staying here was... More

Located across from State Capital, cool when lights are lit. Walking distance from all that is Lincoln. Room was clean. Air conditioner was horrible actually lowered to 34 degrees and still HOT. Bed was queen if you are shorter than 6'3 and skinny. Great for one person not two. Breakfast was great. Staff on top of their game. Décor really... More

We were looking for a hotel for impromptu overnight so we could go to the Route 66 Drive-in. Our normal hotel was booked so we looked for some place new an hour before we left home. Thanks to reading reviews on here I knew to purchase a voucher at TravelZoo. It made the stay so affordable and gave us lots... More

The bed was COMFORTABLE! Breakfast excellent, special kudos to the breakfast crew, they went out of their way to be friendly and helpful, amazing service! My only disappointment was the shower, the water pressure was incredible in the sink so I was looking forward to an awesome shower, the water saving device coupled with some hard water buildup on the...

The housekeeper must have failed to tuck in the sheets on my bed. I awakened a few hours after settling in to find myself sleeping on a bare mattress. On the other hand, the room was clean and well appointed. Hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. The bar off the lobby -- no name bar -- had chairs that... More

Somehow the Jetsons theme never appealed to me in the 50's. It certainly does not appeal to me in the 21st century. No refrig or microwave in rooms. Everyone slept well our one night there, except for half of our group who stayed on the 6th floor. Too many ruffled bedding gave us a poor first impression until the sheets... More

We really enjoyed our night here. The location is perfect, the staff is wonderful, the breakfast was very nice and everything was very clean. I liked that the bar was open until 1am and the drinks were cheap (as far as hotel prices go) Only negatives were the mattress was old (but still slept well), the TV needs to be... More

A step back to the 60's. Very cool lounge and bar area. Rooms are very clean, but small. Bathrooms are updated nicely. Close to the Lincoln sites. We used a TravelZoo package and it was a great value.

We stayed here due to a Travel Zoo special including free tickets to the Lincoln Museum and a voucher to a restaurant. The hotel looks plain on the outside and is modern on the inside. Our room was very clean, large and comfortable. Great free breakfast in the morning and all staff very friendly and helpful. Also close to restaurants... More
