Recent guest reviews

Rooms were nice to stay in. They were clean. Great morning breakfast.

Location made it very easy for early morning flight.

Woke up covered in bites. Bedbugs I am quite sure.

The room was run down. The sink was cracked, the shower head leak, there were gaps where the air conditioning where it met the wall so bugs could get in. I had 2 flies in my room the hole stay and some other bug I didn't recognize. As far as the staff, they were very courteous and helpful

stayed there last year and this year room was musty and the toilet leaked and the sink wouldn't drain. Mattress was too hard also.

No the hotel did not meet my expectations for price I paid. Covenant location. Needs painting in rooms.

bed was ok floor in bath room was fallign apart but put extra towle on it and it did nto hurt my feet.

Value For Money... Near to highway... Near to attractions.

The hotel was very clean. The carpets had just been shampooed. Everything was painted and fresh but there were some areas that were going to be in need of replacement soon. Overall it was clean, the staff was friendly and our stay was pleasant. I would stay there again.

Was not excited about the trip to Springfield, IL. Went on business, I picked this hotel because of the picture in the review and I found out that the pictures of the common areas are not an indication of how the actual rooms look. The rooms are very dull and weren't very clean. It was a walk from the actual rooms to the main check in common area. My phone didn't work in the room and their was no tv remote in the room as well. Best part of the hotel is the common area when you check in. They do have plenty of free parking, so that worked for me too, because I had a promotional truck with me as well

The motel is older but the price was reasonable. The outside was well manicured. The continental breakfast was just ok nothing special.

I think having breakfast go longer would have been better. The service was good and the room was well priced considering it was an on the spot reservation during the state fair.

While I didn't expect a luxury hotel for the cheaper price paid for the one night stay, I did expect hot water in the shower, a clean bed, a flushing toilet a secure deadbolt lock. This hotel did not meet 3 of the 4 criteria.... I had to take a cold water shower (hot water in sink but not in shower) and while the bed linens were clean the bed and pillows smelled of human body odors. I could not engage the deadbolt lock. I stayed because it was a late arrival and I didn't have another place to go. Deeply disappointed.

Ok but the continental breakfast was terrible water in bathroom had very little pressure soap was very cheap

The title says it all. Left without staying the night. Tailgater going on when we arrived.

Good Room for the Money And close to the fairgrounds where the races were .

The room was clean. The lobby and breakfast area was very nice. The room and bathroom very out dated. There were 4 adults and we only had 3 sets of towels in the bathroom. The faucet leaked and the drain in the shower was very slow. By the time you took your shower, you had water up to your ankles. The breakfast was very nice. Staff was friendly.

Right near state fairgrounds. Great staff made adjustment to fix the one problem we had. Only thing to pat attention to is the entrance is easy to miss in the dark.

Looked deserted and old.....smelled like an indian restaurant.....lobby not appealing.

simple, honest, good for 1 night. I would stay again in emergency.
