“Always exceeds our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was our third stay here, and we have enjoyed each time. Great staff, nice rooms, always great! Wonderful room this trip, we were upgraded to a suite, which was so much fun. Location is perfect! Always greeted with genuine friendliness!

This place is within walking distance of many of the Lincoln historical sites. Room are somewhat small, but adequate. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good. Only complaint is that we left our room around 10 am and when we returned at 4 pm, the room had not been made up--I think there is no excuse for this to happen.

We spent two very pleasant nights at this hotel while touring the Lincoln sites in and around Springfield. The room was clean and comfortable with good amenities. The hotel location is ideal for visiting the Lincoln sites. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff were always very friendly and gracious. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Springfield.

Room Tip: We would suggest a room on a lower floor - the water pressure seems to diminish as you get to the up...

We stayed at the State House when visiting Springfield for some Lincoln nerdery. The location could not be beat as it is in walking distance of the Lincoln Library and several other Springfield attractions. The hotel was clean and quiet. There's a good bar for happy hour, too.

My husband and I were recently in Illinois for a family wedding. It also happened to be our 12th wedding anniversary so we decided to go sightseeing in Springfield and spend a night at a B&B. We checked in to the B&B and it was aweful. It's possible the owner should be on the show about hoarders. Amenities listed on thier website that my husband specifically asked about never materialized.
Anyway, we decided to leave regardless of refund or not, it was that bad. So, we found a listing for The State House Inn and crossed our fingers.
When we walked in we were greeted my Kelly Jones at the front desk. She was cheerful and helpful. She was sympathetic about our predicament and immediately made us aware of discounts we qualified for and proceeded to book us into a suite and give us vouchers for a FULL BREAKFAST! In addition she offered us 2 free drinks in the hotel bar to help get our "getaway" back on track. She was a lifesaver.
The room was great, the decor is fun and different. Everything was comfortable with a great view of the Capitol.
Thank you Kelly Jones and The State House Inn!

We had to go for a swim meet for our son. We travel a lot between swimming and basketball, so we need to keep costs down. Lately we have had more than our share of disappointments. The room wasn't huge and it didn't have flat screen tvs, but they were adequate in size, so very very clean and the bathrooms were meticulously maintained!! Every staff member was most gracious; and they were in to help with the buffet breakfast of eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy..make your own waffles with fruit topping and whipped cream; along with other breakfast items. It was just so very nice to have such a clean place and such friendly service!! Will definitely stay again!!

I must admit that the outside appearance of the hotel isn't that flattering, however, from the moment we entered the reception area we were met by friendly staff. The room was clean and furnishings suited a building of that era. Bedding was comfortable.
There is no parking inside the building boundary, but free parking is available in a car park opposite.
The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would be more than happy to stay here again if I was passing through.
