This property was formerly a Hilton Garden Inn. Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. For those interested in the indoor pool, it was wonderfully warm! Perfect to just walk right into the water and enjoy. There is a Wal-Mart very close by and a Cheddars restaurant. The hotel also has a restaurant on site. We would stay at this hotel again!

This hotel is connected to the Keller Convention Center and was a HGI during my stay but it may be changing it's affiliation soon. This should in no way deter you from staying here. Beautiful property in all ways; service, rooms, restaurant and location. 24 hour coffee service and small bar in lobby. Everyone super friendly and helpful.

If you're going to the Convention Center you definitely want to stay here. Lots of restaurants around, Starbucks, WalMart across street. Rates were reasonable. There aren't too many good hotels within a 30 mile radius of Effingham, but I'd go out of my way to stay here again.

Room Tip: Choice of Interstate or WalMart parking lot view. Doesn't matter.

This hotel has changed names. It is now the Thelma Keller Convention Center. We walked in and it was so beautifully decorated still for Christmas. The front desk had trouble programming the room key and people were waiting behind us, but the gentleman remained calm and was very professional. It had a small restaurant, and bar area which was very nice. The room was very nice and clean. I was very impressed with this hotel and will definitely stay there again. It offered hot coffee and cookie while you registered.

Room Tip: Very centrally located with a Walmart across the street and a number of restaurants within walking distance.

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.
