Holiday Inn Effingham

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Was in town to see Josh Turner at the Effingham County Fair (great!) - nicely decorated, clean, and spiffy. Super check-in and check-out process. On-site restaurant - but no free breakfast. Right across the street from a Walmart if you forgot anything - good eats nearby. Connected to Thelma Keller conference center. All in all, a solid visit.

This is our 7th year to stay here when driving from South Texas to Up North Michigan. Each year we have stayed here and have never been disappointed. The staff are so friendly and helpful. This year Hali checked us in quickly, remembering chatting with my husband on the phone and had his special room request ready for us. Liz served us in the restaurant and offered great suggestions from the menu and bar. This is not normal hotel cafe food but rivals what is served in nice restaurants. The wine pour is generous and prices reasonable. Our room was clean and nicely furnished. Very comfortable bed and choices of pillows, soft or hard. Just when you think they can’t top themselves, the fruit infused water this morning was simply a work of art and delicious. Thanks everyone for another great stay. See you next year!!

Spent new years day and could not have been more satisfied. The staff here are just exceptional in every aspect of customer service. I needed an internet cable and they were so gracious in providing it. Restaurant really good also

We stayed here just overnight but it was an excellent choice. The night front desk clerk Brian was very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean. No issues at all! We would definitely stay here again!

Front desk staff was very helpful when we made an error in our reservation. The room was comfortable and the bed allowed for a good night's sleep. The ice machine was inoperable but I was able to get some from the restaurant.

Easy to find, and a good location around plenty of shopping. Far enough away from the interstate that it is not noisy. Professional services. Clean room. I did not try the in-house restaurant; nor the gym or pool. I'll stay here again.

For a number of reasons, we are partial to the IHG Hotels (All Varieties of Holiday nInn, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, and so on). Once on each major trip, we stay at a full-up Holiday Inn. For this trip, it was in Effingham. This place is BEAUTIFUL, open, inviting and has a warm & friendly staff. The room was wonderful! If we stay in Effingham again, it will be here!

Nice, clean, quiet and beautiful place to stay and eat. Had an amazing convention center well equiped, indoor pool and good brunchs. Near a super walmart and close to restaurants and fast food restaurants.

We decided to stay here while traveling back home as Holiday Inn is always my first choice. The lady at the front desk was very nice and thanked me for being a club member. We received a king size bed room which was spacious. I just wish the bathroom would have been bigger. Definitely would stay here again if I was traveling through.

Awesome stay.... the rooms were big clean and downright luxurious... the convention center is a big asset as conventions routinely work their way to the bar and restaurant which can be such a great atmosphere. and the food great as well. Not your typical Holiday Inn.
