This is a wonderful small hotel across from the IL Capital. It is within walking distance of many of Springfield's tourist destinations. The rooms had nice touches not found in others. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. In fact, one lady worked for the visitor center and was a font of information. Free parking and a nice breakfast...

We stayed one night during a visit to Springfield to see the Lincoln sights. The location of this hotel is excellent, a very convenient and short walk to the Lincoln Museum and Library, the historic downtown and IL State Capitol. Park your car for free and walk. The furniture may look "cool," but it is pretty uncomfortable. If you have...

As I drove up I was leary to say the least. I had purchased a package through Travelzoo and thought I was in for a miserable stay. My check in was nice despite the computers being down. Claire had already gotten my keys and coupons ready. The room was updated and modern. I didn't find the couch close to comfortable...

This hotel is very different than a traditional moderate chain hotel. Building seems old, but lobby and rooms very well maintained and up to date. Hotel theme is contemporary decor, which works nicely for the place; retro without just feeling old. Staff very friendly, lobby is warm and inviting. Room spacious and bed very comfortable. Breakfast very good, but dining...

When we arrived, we were pleased to see how convenient it was to the sites on our list to see in Springfield. A low profile and more modern look makes it blend a little easier, with a super convenient parking lot and very little traffic to deal with. The décor is very different than expected, being modern and funky, and...

Have ready many of the reviews of this great little gem, well-located in downtown and close to Lincoln sites. They helped my husband agree with me that this was the place to stay when bringing extended family to see the Springfield attractions this past weekend. We had made a verbal and written request for adjoining rooms, which was Not accommodated....

I stay at this hotel several days a week for several months for work and it's a great location with excellent amenities. Parking, hot breakfast. workout room, and friendly staff make this a "home away from home" location for this business traveler.

We were in Springfield to see the Lincoln sites, and this hotel was a good place to stay. We had a spacious suite with a refrigerator and microwave.

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
