I'm not sure why one reviewer said this was off the beaten track. Lincoln, IL is a small town and what's the big deal about driving another mile or so? There's no traffic to speak of.
I stayed here during the Balloon Festival. In years past I've stayed at cheaper hotels, but decided it was worth the extra 20 bucks to stay in a place that was light and bright. The room had a refrigerator. Everything is new as another person mentioned this was a recent gut rehab. There are flat screen TVs in the rooms.
The breakfast bar was fairly typical with plenty of choices -- fresh fruit, danish, make yourself waffles, juice, yogurt, sausage. The eggs were probably powdered or something -- so nothing special about them.
It was nice and quiet when I was there.
I would stay here again and recommend the hotel if you prefer modern furnishings and a place that is new and clean.
The hotel has an added bonus...the world's largest covered wagon as recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records and Reader's Digest's number 1 roadside attraction is outside. So stop by and see Abe Lincoln sitting on the wagon and check out the hotel while you are there.
