We stayed here and brought our 3 year old granddaughter. Earlier we went to the Lincoln museum which is very close. My requests were honored and we had a great view of the city. The room was comfortable and clean. The receptionist was most helpful and recommended a nearby place to eat dinner. We had breakfast and the dining room...

The room was very comfortable and VERY reasonably priced for a downtown location. The retro decor was a different touch and I really didn't feel like I was in a hotel room. I could not have been more pleased with the accommodations!

We booked fri-mon with the intent of checking out all of the downtown historical sights as well as the Lincoln Tomb and Lincoln's New Salem Park. It turned out to be an excellent choice as the location was a comfortable walk to all of the downtown sights. The hotel is aged but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast...

If you have any sort of interest in checking out the sites of downtown Springfield, you really should consider staying at the State House Inn. The location is ideal for exploring downtown Springfield and all of the Lincoln sites. The hotel is a bit of a throwback to Mad Men days with its 'mod' mid-century decor. I just love a...

We stayed two nights during a busy period at the hotel. We requested a king suite and were delighted with the accommodations. The staff were all friendly.

Our visit to Springfield to see the Lincoln sites was made so much better by staying at the State House Inn. On-site parking was free and convenient.

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
