The Carpenter Street Hotel really is a fabulous location for walking to downtown and the Lincoln Museum, the Lincoln Library, the Old State House, the Lincoln train depot, the Lincoln Law Office, the National Lincoln Home Park and other locations. It was an extremely clean and beautifully decorated hotel as well. They had a hot breakfast with the waffles that... More

This is a great hotel. It is almost next door to the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The rooms were very roomy, attractive and comfortable, and all at a good value price. The service is extremely friendly. They even have a nice shuttle service, which we used to visit the nearby Illinois State Fair.

My wife and I stayed at the Carpenter Street Hotel on the night of 8/26/2016. The room was comfortable, although the mattresses were pretty low quality. Overall, things were clean and the front desk staff was friendly. There was nothing that stood out about this hotel. It was an average hotel that was okay for just an overnight stay.

Stopped for one nite in Springfield. Good location and price. Only two blocks from the Abraham Lincoln Museum. People at the front desk were very helpful. Room was clean. Breakfast was fine for what you get. Would stay here again if I'm in the area.

There are laundry facilities for guest use ($1 per load – quarters required). We didn’t try the free breakfast so unable to comment.

Near all the attractions that Speingfield has to offer, Carpenter Street Hotwl is a great hotel for visitors to the city. Specious and comfortable rooms. Cable television, shuttle service within a five mile radius and a morning hot breakfast gives guests many reasons to stay and enjoy Lincoln's home town.

This hotel is nothing more than a place to lay your head. It is near St. Jos hospital, and that's all it has going for it. The employees do not go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The carpet in the room I was in was filthy. The paint on the bathroom walls were peeling. I would... More
