Stay next door to President Lincoln's tomb!

Posted Apr 23, 2018
Pros: This location offers a hotel-style amenities with the benefit of an important historic Lincoln site within walking distance of your room.
Cons: Deeper cleaning and best maintenance of the rooms.
Location: Lincoln.
We didn't intend to stay in Springfield, but when it turned out that we could stay in a Howard Johnson's close to Lincoln's tomb, we had to do it, and made a little extra time in the morning before pushing on to do it. I am a bit nostalgic and Howard Johnson's is a classic motel brand. The facilities are maintained, but infrequently updated, usually in a good way, and although the locations aren't always very nice, they are clean, safe, and comfortable enough for a good night's rest.

Past its prime.

Posted Apr 21, 2018
Pros: Conveniently located. Easy to get to.
Cons: Maintain the facility. See description for what needs to be repaired or replaced.
The door needs new weather stripping to prevent cold air from blowing in the room. The heater had no deflectors so the air blasts straight to the beds. The heater couldn’t regulate itself so we had to manually turn it on and when the room was warm enough, turn it off... throughout the night. That’s not a good night sleep if you have to keep getting up for the heater. Water trickled out of the shower head instead of a full spray. Microwave sounded like it was grinding rocks when we heated dinner. The fridge wouldn’t close all the way. Overall disappointed with this stay.

The rooms were not up to date and not as clean as it should be. The lounge was very nice

On Route 66

Pros: Large rooms. Lots of parking. Quiet.
Cons: Fix the peeling paint.
Given the choices off the beaten path, this location served its purpose. The price was right. The breakfast was minimal.

This hotel does not have hot water. Their internet service is very very slow and most times not usable.

Totally gross. I literally was afraid to stay there. Dirty, trashy, smelled, and people fighting in room next door.

Bad and good

Posted Mar 5, 2018
Pros: location
Cons: cleanliness
Location: Fairgrounds and airport
This hotel has bad and redone rooms. Don't settle for the shabby, dirty rooms. They have rooms that are redone. The first room they gave us was dirty, needed paint and had ants in the bathroom. The desk called maintenance (who was a nice guy) and he said we needed a different room because he'd have to spray for that many ants. The second room was MUCH better.

The door frame wiggling when I opened it, stains on the ceiling, a pinched in bathroom door, ants ( dead and alive), and walls falling apart start my list of issues.
