Your only real local option
Posted Apr 27, 2014
This was our third stay (previously it was called the Best Western) and it has pretty much remained unchanged, although this time was the first we stayed onthe second floor. Biggest issue? No elevator. Normally not a problem but a real pain with little kids and lots of luggage. Ask for the first floor. It's pretty standard and nothing "Grand" as the name would indicate. The rooms and setting are a bit dated and worn but overall, clean and ok. Breakfast is included and it's pretty standard, eggs, ham, potatoes, the usual cereal and toast. It's our only close option when visiting family and friends in nearby Carlinville (although it is still a good 10+ miles to town). Your only other options are two local, dodgy motels unless you want to drive out further.
