Quality Inn Effingham

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room stank, bed was comfortable and room was quiet and in good location, breakfast was most disappointing—no bacon, only eggs were cold hard boiled, biscuits were hard, waffle was bland, only green tea and a decaffeinated black.

It was just for overnight so we weren't looking for anything fancy. This hotel was conveniently located a block from the highway exit but far enough away that traffic noise was not a problem. The room was large enough to be comfortable. Bathroom area needed some fancy footwork to get in and out of but was very clean as was the room. The pool area did not have the horrid smell of chlorine and was indoor for all weather use. The breakfast was adequate. There is no elevator so for convenience ask for first floor room. This hotel is located on the east side of the highway with fewer other hotels and restaurants and stores. We found that a plus as we were only looking for a place to sleep and the restaurant recommended was on the hotel's side of the highway. We would stay at the Quality Inn again.

We stayed here 11/19/17 just for one night. The rooms were clean, the beds were clean (we always check thoroughly), the hotel attendant that checked us in was so sweet and just wonderful at 2 am, and the breakfast was really good. We did not get to swim in the pool but it was beautiful. The only reason that I didn’t rate higher was the lack of microwave/refrigerator in the room. I felt safe in the area (it didn’t look sketchy), and as I was traveling with only my sister and two kids, that’s extremely important to me. The rate was very reasonable.

We had to make a sudden trip to Missouri for a funeral so I booked a suite at the Quality Inn in Effingham. After spending 2 days traveling in a car, my disabled wife was looking forward to having a sofa plus an easy chair to relax in as well as the whirlpool tub advertised for our suite. When we arrived at approx 5:30 pm, we were the only car in the parking lot but as it grew later in the eve, that changed. We were put in a room on the 1st floor because we found out our booked suite was located on the 2nd floor and there was no elevator. The room was very clean and nice however it was not what we booked. A larger room should have been offered. No compensation of any type was offered.There should have been info on the booking site telling us that accessible suites were on 2nd floor and no elevators. Are there no suites on the 1st floor?

I got the very last spot [ on a Monday ]... bathroom wad built for a hobbit Other than that, clean, free breakfast, and a pool..price was 81 Lots of choices on this exit, only 1 cheaper.. Turned on trip advisor looking for something to do..apparently there's a big cross to go see in town

Quality Inn was one of the least expensive places to stay in the Effingham area so we were a little skeptical of our stay there. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed & pillows were comfortable. The free breakfast had a better layout than some of the more expensive hotels we've stayed in. If there was a con - the cleaning crew was knocking on our door at 8:00 even though we had our do not disturb card on the door. We didn't use the swimming pool but it appeared clean. The exercise room was small but had a treadmill & weight machine that were of good quality. We were on the first floor but keep in mind there are only two floors and no elevator. We will stay there again if we're back in the area.

Stop for the night. Nice clean safe hotel. Rooms very typical but very clean and comfortable. Have paid a lot more for the same type of room at other chains. Breakfast was served and it had the usual items. The pool looked nice but did not use it. I would not hesitate to book here again. Thanks for a good night's sleep.

The hotel charges a pending charge for your WHOLE HOTEL STAY the first night. Then when you check out, they charge you again. Yes, you can talk to them. They will tell you that the pending charge is released and will fall off within 7-10 business days, but by then, your vacation is screwed if you didn't save up double to pay at their hotel. The manager, Hiren, will NOT return calls to resolve the issue.

This has been one of the nicest rooms we've stayed in on our recent trip. Close proximity to plenty of restaurants, reasonably priced, clean, refrigerator and microwave in room. I would stay at this quality inn again!

The staff here is friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great bed. The breakfast was tasty with a good variety. The wi-for was good as well. We were directed to the Cracker Barrel for supper.
