This motel was recommended to us because of all of the original neon from the 1950's but all of the neon has been removed. The lobby smelled nasty. The bathroom floor and tub looked like they hadn't been cleaned in years. The bed was horribly uncomfortable. The only reason I gave a 2 star rating instead of 1 star was... More

Quaint and cute. Clean rooms that provide what you need. Away from the bustle of town you will get a restful night. Owner is very nice lady who will be glad to accommodate. This is not your 5 star hotel, however, I do not think you will be disappointed check it out.

Stopped with my fiancé and dogs as we were passing through heading down south. Wanted a motel compared to a hotel so we could sit outside with the dogs. Sit outside with the dogs is exactly what I did the minute we arrived till well after midnight. Thought it was quite odd after checking in that the lady at the... More

The good reviews are a JOKE. You have got to be kidding me. Yes the staff is friendly, I agree. But I'd have rather slept in my car!!! Don't bother. You could catch something there. No photos. Why would I bother... Just wanted to get OUT of there.

My wife is from the philippines and I travel out of town on the weekdays for my job, so when there is a bad storm, she stays in hotels after work instead of driving 20 miles of country roads. 2 other times I tried to call the local number and no one ever answers. This week I found thier 888... More

We were looking for an inexpensive stay in Effingham, and other reviews were positive. The Paradise Inn is not in the commercial area of Effingham where many other more expensive places are located. When we first pulled up, the place looked a little seedy, but the lady at check-in was very pleasant. Our room had two comfy beds and a... More

The service, cleanliness, atmosphere, room quality, and value of the Paradise Inn was great compared to the other motels and hotels in Effingham, IL. We have stayed at other places there and we never have received the same high-quality of service and friendliness from others. The staff gave us a welcoming feel the minute we entered the office. I highly... More

We were driving cross country and needed a cheap hotel that accepted pets. We were coming up on the Effingham exit and this hotel was listed in the AAA guidebook so we called and they said they had availability. The only downside was that they were already sold out of double rooms so my friend and I had to share... More

This was a nice place. The only problem we had was trying to get a non-smoking room. My husband smokes but I like a non-smoking room as he smokes outside at our home and everywhere else. The people that run the inn was like Indian descent. I guess they don't understand that a smoker can sleep in a non smoking... More
