Pretty nice hotel. Nicely decorated for the holidays.
The room was large, clean, and quiet. Bed was great.
Good breakfast.

This Hilton is a great choice if you're staying in Effingham with kids. Clean, quiet, great breakfast -- you can't go wrong.

Excellent service, very clean (I am a germaphobe nurse ), excellent cook to order breakfast buffet at reasonable price. The only negative was not being able to swim long. After all day in the car, my daughter needed to burn some energy. If you are not planning to swim, 5 stars easy...

We don't usually choose Garden Inns when traveling, but since we like Hilton properties and didn't have a lot of choice -- other Hilton properties in Effingham, IL. were either booked or being renovated when we were traveling in August -- we chose the Garden Inn. From the moment we entered the lobby, we knew we were somewhere special. Sun poured into the room from large windows and everything seemed to be bright, cheerful and clean. What we noticed in the lobby and in our room was how clean and fresh our room seemed. When we asked at the deak, we were told that this particular Garden Inn prides itself on its cleanliness. Another wonderful feature is their on-site restaurant that is partially screened from the lobby, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although breakfast, which has table service, is not free as it usually is at other places, it is worth the price. The menu includes the usual cereals, juices and breads but also house-made oatmel and waffles as well as eggs and toast along with breakfast meats. We ate dinner there on our first night because we were just too tired to get back in the car and end up eating at a fast-food restaurant on the strip near the hotel. I had perfectly-cooked salmon. We liked the hotel so much that we booked a room for our return trip.

We wanted to take off from the City for a nice road trip with no destination in mind. We ended up in Effingham, ready for a nice meal and decent accommodations. I read the reviews about the Hilton Garden Inn and went online to book it as we rolled into town. The website said they were full, but we walked in to check anyway. Perfect! They did have a room. Wow, we were shocked at how nice this place was! It's new, clean and well run. We got a huge room. The amenities were very nice. It's very quiet, with the air and heat not interfering with sleep. The beds were so comfortable, better than most 4 or 5 star hotels. There is a nice little bar and restaurant in the hotel. We decided to check out a local restaurant, the Firefly Grill. This is a top notch restaurant, definitely level with any upscale Chicago restaurant. Food was outstanding, and a great wine list! If you are in the area, this hotel and restaurant are great for a nice romantic getaway!

This was a good experience while we had to stay in Effingham on a biz trip. The rooks are typical what you get at HGI's. Good bedding and all the other anemities you exoect - frig, coffee maker.
Hot cooked breakfast is getting you oretty goog into the day.
Stuff was very friendly - park space in front of the hotel available.
On the opposite side is Wall MArt and some restaurants/fast food . When you leave the parking lot to the right, after approx 1/2m you come to a good sports bar.
Clear go

I stayed here a few times for work while traveling to and from St. Louis. This is a very nice hotel for an HGI that is pretty far removed from big cities. It is in a great location as far as food, quick shopping, and there is even a bowling alley attached with really cheap drinks if you like. There is also a BW3 down the street with good service.

Staff here is excellent, very friendly and attentive. I would definitely stay here again if the need arose. Also really great rates considering it's an HGI.
