“beat up, decrepit motel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Not staying there again and we only stopped for one night. Price is cheap but the site is not worth the money.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

It's nothing fancy, but the price is right, the room was clean, internet worked. (I'm using it now to write this review) It *is* wedged right between I-70 and a Petro truckstop, but honestly... I was able to sleep fine. It's soundproofed enough so that all but the lightest sleepers will do well. It was very humid and hot when we checked in, but the room was nice and cool. The morning breakfast is the usual fare, and OK. I would stay here again if the need arises. Bathroom was kinda tiny, but then again, how much time are you going to spend in there? My suggestion is to ask for a room facing the Interstate (really!), since they're quieter. (and you get a balcony with those)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

This motel is located between a truck stop and the Interstate. There is a lot of road noise. Despite very comfortable beds, I did not get a good nights sleep due to the truck traffic. Rooms are unusually small. TV was large and had good cable. Wireless Internet did not work. Front desk staff was a bit cold. Breakfast was above average for Best Western's smaller motels. Nearby restaurant is only open at night and has a nice salad bar.

We required a stop between St. Louis and Indianapolis and the Best Western raintree Inn hit the spot!

Easy access from the freeway; room small but very clean and with both indoor and outdoor entrances; refreshing outdoor pool; filling breakfast the next morning with biscuits and gravy; inexpensive restaurant next door with good steaks and a salad bar; and easy to get on our way.

Not a luxury stay but it hit all the right notes!

The front desk clerk was a little tired, but its normal since we showed up at around 3 AM, and everyone is a little on edge at that time. The room was beautifully decorated, and had two big comfy beds. The location was close to this huge cross, which is quite the site in Effingham. Loved the room, internet worked, small fridge and microwave were perfect. Breakfast was a little stingy, but it did the trick. Great value! Perfect Stop between Cincinnati and St-Louis for baseball road trippers.
