We stayed one night while in town to visit the various Lincoln sites. Hotel was very very clean. Decor was interesting - 1960's (but in a new way if that makes sense). We had a king suite and it was quite spacious. Very quiet evening (but it was a Sunday night) and heard no other customers and saw very few.... More

Recently spent three nights in two stays at this property. This is a 'listed building' dating from the early 1960's and has overhauled to reflect that period with authentic furnishings, some of which we saw displayed in the Art Institute in Chicago (however, some, while evoking the 1960's looked like they'd been picked up at second hand stores!). The hotel... More

We stayed for two nights at The State House Inn to see some of the tourist attractions in Springfield. The room was very clean and quiet. We appreciated the nice touch of robes in the bathroom. AARP rate was reasonable. Hotel staff answered all of our questions and were pleasant. Breakfast buffet had a nice variety that anyone could find... More

I was in Springfield on business and stayed at The State House Inn for 2 nights. Left me say that this is considered a "boutique" hotel with furniture that has a early 60's look. Check-in was efficient and I went to my room, that's when things went downhill. Opened the refrig to put in some waters and found someone else's... More

We have contacted this Guest using the Tripadvisor "Contact this Reviewer" function. Of course we will repair or replace his shirt if he damaged it on one of our luggage carts. I supplied the Guest with the email of the General Manager and my own personal email encouraging him to contact us so we can take care of his clothing.... More

We had a perfect stay... once we entered the right room. Initially we were assigned a room that had not been cleaned.... and it took a fifteen minute wit for us to get one that was (hence the downgrade on "service").

We chose this hotel for its location to downtown events & attractions, but also enjoyed the "retro vibe" of the architecture and decor. This does not mean "dated and tired," however; the rooms are tastefully decorated and provide many amenities (even thick bathrobes -- I LOVE it when hotels do that). The beds were realllllllly comfortable, and the rooms were... More

All of the employees were pleasant, happy and willing to help. The location was within walking distance of the Capital and not too far from restaurants and downtown. It was very close to public transportation. The breakfast was very good and well stocked. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Springfield, IL.

Staff was business like, not overly friendly. The king mattress was terrible, very soft and pulled you to the middle. The lounge was closed on Sunday night.

This hotel had a great retro look and was very clean. It was across the street from the State Capital and was in walking distance of the Lincoln Library and Museum. The staff was very helpful when we were looking for dining suggestions, and the breakfast buffet was fantastic. I would have no hesitation staying at this hotel in the... More
