Holiday Inn Express Lincoln

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was our second time staying there and we thoroughly enjoyed both of our stays. It's conveniently located right off of I-55 and Highway 10 and close to a variety of national chain restaurants. The facility itself and the rooms are clean and well maintained. Each bed had 4 pillows, two firm and two soft, for whatever combination you prefer. Our room had a small fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee machine, color TV and wi-fi. There's a pool, vending and ice machines, complimentary news papers, and continental breakfast available with coffee, juices, and fruit. The staff is friendly and helpful and always willing to assist with whatever we may need. We will definitely stay there in the future when business requires us to travel to that area again.

Friendly staff, efficient, room was pretty clean and quiet. I liked this hotel, however, I booked a few days in advance and this was my only option. There are 2 hotels within 1.5 miles that are just as good and cost $40 less per night. Book in advance and you won't have to worry about paying $105 for one night here.

This hotel was the closest decent stay during a holiday visit to family. The bed and environment was comfortable and the staff friendly and very accommodating. My compliments!

We stayed here while visiting family near by. Kids loved the indoor pool and staff was very friendly.

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.

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.

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.

This stay in Lincoln was so comfortable and just what we needed. I will reserve a stay here any time.

Great job [...]with you great customer service.

It is a very nice hotel with very friendly staff. They even served cookies when we got there. Amen!

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.

Just an overnight stay on the way down South. Daughter enjoyed the pool, rooms were very clean and breakfast next morning was great for a hotel breakfast.

The staff was very informative and helpful with all our questions. This was just a lay over as we were on our way to visit family. The breakfast in the morning was beyond our expectations.

the pool and hot tub was very clean. the staff was very helpful,very polite and professional. quick checkin and out.The clerk who checked us in was very nice and polite and professional and helpful. Hotel room was very clean quite air conditioning. only 29 miles to the State Fair easy on and off the I55 route lots of restraunts in the area.

The hotel was nice and quiet. A little town but everything you would need right down the road. The kids liked the cookies at the front desk! And the breakfast was good.

The Holiday Inn Express in Lincoln Illinois provided a very comfortable stay for our 6-day vacation. The room was more spacious than the other motels we stayed in on this trip, and we felt it was a good value for the price. The breakfast was even better than when we used this motel in the past. All in all we felt this was a good experience.
