Good place to stay for State Fair

We stayed a couple of nights here to go to the State Fair. It's works well as it's close enough to Springfield to make it a short trip but not directly in town so the price was pretty good. The hotel is clean and comfortable and they had no problem with our very late checkin. Free breakfast was not bad for a hotel of this size with a good selection of hot and cold food. Overall we had a fine time.

Fantastic as usual.

We always stay at Holiday Inn Express. We stayed at another place down the street once to save a few bucks and would have left after the first night if Holiday Inn had any open rooms. What more can I say. When we arrive, staff greets us like family. We go to Lincoln to visit family and always book Holiday Inn.

12/3 Lincoln Hotel

Everything was fine when checking in. The front desk called and asked if everything was fine, and it was. The breakfast , which is important to me, was better than average. Everything went just fine.

front desk employees were extremely nice

The hotel is clean with the exception of the smoking room. but overall experience is great one. The Front desk employees are very friendly and helpful. [...]he is the night shift supervisor was very nice and he made us feel very confident that some issue was being resolved. He took care of us with extreme friendliness and he went beyond and above. I will stay with your hotel over and over and will recommend it to all my friends and family. We did had a slight problem due to the room above us were out of control and we felt that it is not [...]'s responsibilties to control the children it's the parents. He did evrything he could but as soon as he turn around after asking them to stay quite they did it again, and he handled all the complaint with respect. Great job [...]with you great customer service.

Average

Had prepaid on [...] but when I got there, I had to wait for 30 minutes for them to find us a room. Kept giving excuses about staff quitting, not enough cleaning crew, etc. Would not offer updates or information - excuse after excuse. Ended up upgrading us to a king room but kids had to sleep on pull out - they did not like it.

What a welcoming place!

Arrived very early for 4 nts. & were accommodated most graciously, at inconvenience to hotel, on ground floor due to a healing broken leg. Made to feel EXTREMELY welcome by the receptionist who gave us loads of info concerning both Lincoln & Springfield from all points of view : historical, eating-wise, road directions, opening & closing times of historical venues etc. Room very nice - & cool! All staff remembered us from day-to-day with cheery smiles asking about our previous day's adventures - they actually seemed interested! Hot breakfast was GREAT! As we were there for 4 bfsts we expected the same each day - not so! Quite a variety of eats. And the lady-in-charge of the food area was impeccable in her personal hygiene & absolutely wonderfully hygienic in the manner in which she cleaned the eating area daily. Both I & my friend are hotel folk and would have her on our staff any day!!!!! Highly recommend the hotel and all the staff. Look forward to visiting soon again. (The Steak N Shake nearby was a great god-send late one evening. Staff there were extremely busy but service was great and constantly with a smile!) Lincoln Rules!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Found it a good & quiet base from which to explore Springfield's historical sites plus there are plenty of local sites close at hand. Oodles of literature at reception and staff who can put one on the right track.
