We enjoyed a pleasant one night stay while passing through Illinois. It's a fairly large and very elegant older property on the main drag and just a few blocks from the center of this small town. Our room was in a more traditional "motel" looking segment near the back of the lot, quiet, clean and comfortable, though perhaps a bit... More

The office is in an nice old Victorian house. The couple that run the hotel are friendly. I stayed in the one story building of rooms. Clean and comfortable. The shower/bathroom were new. Big tv. Not the run downish motel I'm used to seeing in small towns. Very nice.

We stayed st the Shelby Inn over Labor day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The friendly and informative welcome by the front desk is unlike any chain you will stay out. The rooms are clean and in good repair. Close to lake Shelbyville for boating, swimming and summer fun. Best kept secret for lodging value and atmosphere.

My one night stay at the Shelby Inn was fantastic. The service upon check in and throughout my stay was friendly and prompt. The room was clean and the location of the inn was perfect. There are several restaurants and stores close by and the property is lovely. We spent a lot of time outdoors sitting in the courtyard. The... More

I had some business to conduct in the thriving little berg of Pana, IL, and unfortunately that little burg doesn't offer much in the way of overnight accommodations. According to Trip Advisor, the next closest option with a decent hotel is Shelbyville-you know, that little town with one of the biggest lakes in our miserable, outdoor activity deprived state. And... More

The rooms, at least in the newer section, are quite spacious and clean. Furnishings included a couple wing back chairs, straight back chairs, and desk, along with a fridge and a microwave. Internet speed was much better than most similar facilities and a more than adequate cable TV provider should fit most needs.

We were looking for a place to stay that was close to Lake Shelbyville. We were last minute planners and could not find a cabin. There were a couple of rooms still available at the Shelby Inn, and we could not have been happier. We weren't looking for a high maintenance, luxury hotel. We were spending our days on the... More

Stayed at the Shelby inn for a wedding nearby. Not many other choices in teh way of accommodations. The Shelby Inn was reasonably priced. Close to most things in the area. Clean, but dated. There were several other guests of the wedding staying here at the same time we did, and it was laid out well for group travel. When... More

Stayed at this hotel a couple times during business trips. It is a updated motel type facility that is well maintained. Location -- the hotel is located in the middle of Shelbyville a around a mile outside of the courthouse/downtown area. Besides one other there is only two hotels in Shelbyville. The larger corporate hotels are about 40 minutes away.... More

“If you want to use your computer or have a lot of devices that need charging, be sure to ask for a room that has a desk in it, as not all rooms have desks or extra outlets.”
