The State House Inn is located downtown, a 6 block walk from the Lincoln home and about 3 blocks from the fabulous Lincoln museum. Parking is free and convenient.
Our room (#712) on the top floor was not huge, but was very nicely appointed and arranged. The bathroom was especially enormous, and excellently stocked, with nice amenities, upscale towels, and bathrobes. The hotel is "energy efficient", meaning that the air conditioner re-sets itself to a higher temperature several times during the day to save energy. It was dismaying to come back to a room that was 77 degrees after our afternoon of sighseeing. The good news is that the temperature you set after 8pm is the temperature you'll get throughout the night.
Featured also is a huge, clean breakfast room, offering eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, fruits, waffles, etc. etc. And good coffee!!!
The staff is friendly and helpful.
Small minuses were (1) very low water pressure in the shower, and (2) very soft mattresses on the beds.
