“Saved a few bucks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We really like Hampton Inns and I could see little difference between this Country Inn and suites and the Hampton we stayed in the night before except the price. Bath nice and clean, room clean and a breakfast similar to the day before. Called the reservation line but got the room for a few bucks cheaper at the desk.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We were in Effingham for a concert and decided to give the Country Inn a try. Check in and out were flawless, the staff was very friendly and efficient. Our room was clean, but a little drafty in the bedroom near the heating unit. We would stay here again if in the area. The only real complaint, and this seems to be typical of free breakfasts, see-through bacon.

Stayed here with our 2 kids. Room was spacious and clean, pool was VERY warm, and breakfast was great. We will stay here again if we have the chance. The place was decorated very nicely for the holidays, too.

We walked into the hotel and it was decorated for Christmas! So cute with snowmen. The rooms were clean. Our check in was very late. We were so glad to have a room ready. We also enjoyed the hot oatmeal, biscuits, and chicken patties for breakfast. I love Country Inn and Suites!

Stopped here in ad hoc fashion on the way back home. Despite being a last minute no reservation stop the price was very affordable. Great room - clean and well maintained. Great beds and lots of room in the bathroom. Good breakfast. To date I have not been let down by Country Inn & Suites. I am very pleased with the price for a room at this location. Most affordable hotel all trip. It's rare I stop in Effingham but if I ever do again this will be my first choice. My only complaint is that it's kind of odd how you get to the hotel (remember it was late and dark) but other than that a perfect stay.

Room Tip: Our room faced the interstate but it didn't seem too noisy. For extra quiet you might get a roo...

What's with hotels in Illinois? They always seem to be expensive, and the hotels in the Effingham area the day we needed a room where sold out for some reason, all the way to Mount Vernon. Anyway, the clerk gave us a deal of 20% off, but it was still over $130+ for one night. The employees where very nice, the breakfast attendant was very welcoming, and the night clerk got me some utensils and plates for us to use with out being put out. Walmart was a short walk away for supplies, and restaurants are near too. The area seemed safe and quiet, accept the constant noise of the highway and Jake brakes. They are doing construction on this portion of the interstate, which had an off ramp is literally 5 feet from the parking lot. The pool was super warm and open until 11pm, the hot tub was nice too. My only complaint would be the price and the smell. Our room smelled like some had smoked and then they tried to cover it with some stinky spray. The AC unit outside our door smelled musty too. The bed was comfy but the "Euro" pillows a little small for my liking. Still, the staff's customer service made up for these negatives. We didn't make our reservations in advanced, and all the other hotels in the area where sold out.

Room Tip: Rooms near the back have a lot of highway noise. Pool is super warm and open until 11pm. Fitness roo...

We use a lot of Country Inn & Suites while traveling but this one is exceptional. The rooms are immaculate, the beds comfortable and the breakfast is enough to fill you up till lunch and then some. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. We stay there everytime we are traveling through the area and would recommend this spot whole heartedly. In fact, we delayed our trip one day because they did not have a room available. We could have gone somewhere else, but chose to wait a day to we could stay at this location. Excellent place to stay.
