Traveled to Springfield for a overnight before heading on to St. Louis to visit the Lincoln Museum and the Frank Lloyd Wright Dana-Thomas house (both great). Wanted a hotel that allowed us to walk to restaurants, etc. to help get us out of the car from our road trip. Hotel lobby is very well remodeled and love the terrazzo floors.... More

I just wanted to make a few comments about this Guest's comments. First, the Hotel is the youngest building in Springfield to be Historically designated. The "International Style" of Architecture embraced the new technologies of Concrete, Steel & Glass. It is NOT a converted Office building. Our Suites have a separate bedroom with a locking solid core door. The Living... More

Took our three grand children to see all the Lincoln venues in Springfield. Had a suite with a rollaway bed and it worked out fine. Free breakfast was excellent. Staff has been unfailingly nice on every one of our three visit. I recommend the State House Inn anyone visiting Springfield, Ill.

We had a suite and it was very roomy. The retro furniture, some vintage and some reproduction, is very fun to see throughout the hotel. The staff at check-in was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. Coffee in rooms was a nice feature for the early risers who awake before breakfast is served on the 1st floor. The... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, nicely sized. Coffee maker in the rooms. Only drawback was bad TV. Good breakfast, featuring eggs, bacon, waffles cereal. Abundant parking. Great location situated across from the capital and reasonably priced. I would stay there again

Our room was great ... clean, modern, big enough. Breakfast was well above average. The location can't be beat. It one block from the state capitol and easy walking distance to the Lincoln Museum, Library and House, all of which are outstanding. There is a bar in the hotel. We wished it served food other than popcorn. Parking is free... More

The hotel itself was great; clean, quiet, comfortable, great location, super staff but for one staff member's failure to know the hotel processing of debit cards, failure to take a second card at the time of check-in and her decision to do things her own way. Also, the complimentary breakfast was not so good, powdered eggs, low-end sausage, no pastries,... More

We really do appreciate when Guests review our hotel even if they are not necessarily positive reviews. From time to time we do make mistakes and getting feedback, especially on a public forum like TripAdvisor, keeps us on our toes. This particular review however seems to have wandered off track. They spent most of the review talking about things that... More

I booked the property via Airbnb because that's always my first default search before doing anything else. Joe, I believe the manager, was very responsive, so it was a easy process.

We stayed one night in this hotel so we could visit the Lincoln Museum. I chose this hotel for it's location and great reviews and we were not disappointed. The room definitely had a retro vibe, which I thought was unique. Everything was clean and well-kept. I love the little things--bath and body soaps, robes, complimentary waters.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The State House Inn is the only major hotel in downtown Springfield, Illinois to offer a complimentary full hot breakfast, super fast hotel wide WiFi and parking. The combined value of these complimentary goods/services make us, by far, the best value in Springfield. Also, when we say "Breakfast", we mean a real breakfast with eggs, breakfast meats, potatoes, biscuits & gravy, waffles, cereals, yogurt, muffins, toast, juices, Seattle's Best coffee & teas, etc. You could easily spend $10/person replicating our breakfast in a restaurant. ... more   less
