“Great roadtrip stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We stayed at this hotel twice, once on the way to see relatives for Thanksgiving, then again on the way home. The hotel is new and spotless. Lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Rooms are new, modern, and sparkling clean. Good internet, tv, and liked having a fridge/microwave in the room--very convenient with kids. Plenty of restaurants/shopping within walking distance. TGI Friday is in an adjacent parking area, and Walmart is right across the street. The whole family really enjoyed the pool--best pool we've had in a long time, and the highlight of a trip for my kids is the hotel pool. Warm, clean, plenty of fluffy towels, speakers piping in festive music after Thanksgiving (oldies prior to that)--pretty near perfect. I also liked the fact that the pool area is separate from the rooms/lobby area--no worries about kids making a bit of noise in the pool and disturbing others.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I couldn't find the Holiday Inn I was looking for, decided to check their rates as long as I was there - $99 a night, less than HI (no free breakfast), so glad I checked - a great hotel, elegant, clean, comfortable, luggage carts, elevator, and a wonderful restaurant, I had Seared Ahi Tuna and an amazing Spinach Cranberry salad; a full bar, it was all excellent. I'd drive an extra couple of hours to stay here again.

We've stayed at many Hilton Garden Inn hotels when we travel across the country but this is our favorite. It is always immaculately clean, the beds are fabulous and the staff excellent. The breakfast is also excellent.

Had another nice stay at HGI. I have found consistent quality each time I stay. Hotel is so clean and I never hear people or showers in adjoining rooms like I have at other hotels. Location is convenient. Service is so good. I especially enjoy the way they do their breakfast and I don't mind paying the $8.95 rather than the "free" breakfast at other chain hotels. I like having the all you can eat buffet plus being able to order things from the kitchen.

This HGI has it figured out........great customer service.......spotless facility.......comfortable beds and a small but surprisingly good restaurant. Every one of the staff we met went out of their way to smile and say hello and took care of our questions. This was a business trip and we had the pleasure of staying 3 nights. The food, cleanliness and customer service was consistently excellent.
This hotel is right off the highway and right in the middle of restaurant row with everything from Starbucks to Steak & Shake to Effingham's famous Firefly Grill within 5 minutes of the hotel.

We were there for the Corvette show in September, the hotel was very nice and clean, the staff is very friendly. The front desk manager Daniel D. went above and beyond making our stay very enjoyable and entertaining.

The hotel was very nice and clean. Our waitress for breakfast was incredibly nice and kind and you could tell she was happy to be doing her job. Not sure the last time we've encountered that anywhere, including stand alone restaurants. Wished we could have stayed longer.
