Trip with family. Room for two nights. My Holiday Inn profile requests near an elevator or a ground exit and even called and talked to Karen at desk who looked at my reservation 2 days before arrival. She even said she could move a regular customer and I would be a couple of doors from elevator. Guess what...I was first... More

We attended a wake and funeral that was really out in the boonies and found this gem. Great pool and hot tub and excellent breakfast (cheap). Clean room and bathroom. Convenient ice machine. So happy we found it.

Went to Effingham for a business meeting Sunday and Monday in July. Hotel was easy to get to, very clean and the front desk ladies went out of their way to be sure my stay was outstanding.

How are you supposed to sleep at this hotel? The room doors all sound like a bank vault closing! Bam! Bam! Slam! The room doors have very powerful automatic door closers, so when you let go of the door after opening, they slam shut with an industrial metal-on-metal ker-clang! Also, the room doors and the bathroom doors are so squeaky... More

Nice stay. Clean, comfortable rooms. Congenial staff. Decent, modern decor. Open, well-decorated common areas with a lively bar and occasional jazz band. Looks like the locals frequent the bar. Could use a complimentary breakfast, but, like many Hiltons, no go. Marginal pricing, but we felt we got value.
