I love staying here, it's close to Amtrak which is how I often get here, but there's plenty of parking; rooms are clean, staff is super friendly, the No-Name Bar will soon carry Schlafly Beer (I'm very patient...), and the accessibility to downtown is perfect, Springfield is a very walkable town. No reason not to stay here; it's not someone's house but the experience is a good one.
Everything was as listed, and more. The staff is super friendly, accommodations were just right, and the bar was even a bit livelier than the last time I was there. Definitely staying here the next time I'm in Springfield, thanks for a great visit.
We enjoyed this experience. As noted by other guests this is a hotel. We were upgraded to a suite as promised. We enjoyed the extra space, the fridge and the comfy bathrobes. The TV is not a flatscreen, but it worked just fine. I enjoyed the atmosphere in the hotel. It is furnished with 60s modern furniture and is decorated with modern art from local artists. It's a classy place. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fresh made and served in a pleasant room with staff to keep the area neat and clean.
Not only was parking free, but after checkout I still had a meeting and they let me leave my car in the lot safe and sound. SUCH SERVICE!
The room was clean and beautiful. I was immediately upgraded to a room with two beds! WIFI was free and there were plenty of outlets to charge me phone! The Continental Breakfast is BETTER than the one at the Hilton! I was able to enjoy both because I had a meeting at the Hilton and they provided breakfast. What a treat!
The only downside was the hot water for the shower. It took a VERY long time to heat up and then I discovered a trick where I keep the water running on hot but turn off the shower portion for a bit until it heats up and then I turn the shower portion back on. Then I repeat every time the shower gets cold.
The bathroom was FULLY STOCKED oh my goodness! They even provided a razor to my friend who forgot to bring his! What a treat! I will definitely be coming back! Five stars!
We had a wonderful stay in our 2 room king suite! It was spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable- I did not want to come home! This is not a typical Airbnb in that it is in a hotel and breakfast is included- big bonus. We were perfectly situated to walk to all that downtown Springfield has to offer, specifically the Lincoln home, the Capitol building and specifically the Lincoln museum, and only a 5-10 drive from the family we were visiting. We will definitely stay here the next time we come for a visit!
Everything was just as advertised, no surprises here and proximity to downtown and view of the Capitol are both great. I'd stay here again, wonderful feel to the place, very nice staff.
We had a great stay -- it's not a house, but a hotel a block from the Capital building. Our two room suite was fabulous, super spacious, we were able to bring our bikes into the room we were provided with a lovely breakfast the next morning. If you're visiting Springfield this is the place to be.
This was not a typical airbnb listing - it is a hotel. Good location. The front desk and service staff were very friendly. Good free breakfast. We were upgraded to a suite which was quite spacious.
However, the room was "old" - old TV's (no flat screens), and furnishings were worn and the lamps for lighting were inadequate. One was held together by a "bread-tie".
But most alarming (and potentially dangerous) was the fact that in the evenings (between about 11:00pm and 4:00am) you could not get cold water from the faucets. Water coming out the cold faucet was scalding hot. I could not even take a shower in the night because the water was too hot! I know little about plumbing and can not understand how this can happen - but it does!
Not sure if all the rooms are like ours (#319) but if so, I would be hesitant to return to this hotel.
They were very friendly and welcoming. The location was perfect for viewing all the Lincoln sites. Everything was within easy walking distance, just as advertised. Our room was great, an older style, but extremely neat and super clean.
Not your usual Airbnb experience, but a great hotel in the middle of Springfield close to the capitol and just blocks from the Lincoln Museum. Kara was a great hostess, picking out a perfect room for us. The breakfast in the morning was varied and generous--all in all, a great place to stay in Springfield. One very pleasant surprise was that I thought I had lost my tablet charger when I forgot it as we left--a black cord/charger in an outlet behind a black couch and table! However, the housekeeping was so thorough that when I called to see if by chance it had been found, it was already sitting in the Lost and Found and we picked it up on our way back through a couple of days later. To me, that says a lot about the quality of the housekeeping and the overall attitude of the establishment. We will definitely return the next time we are in Springfield.
I have had the pleasure of Staying at The State House Inn several times, which each stay a perfect experience. This is a hotel for a discriminating traveler. It sports an updated mid-century decor in every element. A great place for business, and fun for the whole family as well. You can travel far and wide and not come across a place like this anywhere. No other hotel even comes close in Springfield.
I have known Joe for a fair many years and have had the occasion to visit his Springfield property a number of times. From the posh (swoon-worthy) Mid-Century decor to the service and facility itself, The State House Inn is a fantastic hotel with all the amenities a casual or business traveler would need. With all the interesting History surrounding Springfield Il (Abraham Lincoln etc.) it's worth a stop and a stay! Knowing the Managing Partner at the City of Springfield's top hotel has it's benefits! 5 Star service all the way around! *Note: Make sure to check out the swank "No Name Lounge" at the hotel - smart cocktails and great music!
