OK, maybe not the middle of nowhere but there's not much around here and the only reason you're looking for a hotel in Effingham is probably because you're either driving on 57 or on 70 and this town is like America's biggest intersection. And this hotel is literally on the off ramp. Couldn't be easier access.
What a pleasant surprise it was when we arrived at the Hampton Inn to find a hotel so well maintained, sparkling clean and with a helpful, smiling staff. And by the way, when I say clean, I mean you can literally eat off the floor. The hotel is small, about 67 rooms if I remember correctly and there's a lovely indoor pool with easy access from all the rooms. Breakfast is in a small dining room, very B&B-like.
A big plus if you're a steak lover - right next door to the hotel is the Lone Star Steakhouse with some fantastic food - meats and otherwise. Traveling with two huge teenage boys, this was a great place to have dinner.
One thing I'd mention as a bit of a let down is the carpet of cigarette butts next to the side entrance. I was going to upload a picture I took of this "carpet" but decided against it because I don't want to create the impression this is something major. I am sure if anyone from the hotel reads this they'll happily take care of it. And I just don't get smokers - there's an ashtray right there by the door!
