I stayed here for a music training class held in the Jefferson Room of the hotel. Every staff member I met was courteous, kind and helpful. I needed to make ten copies of a document--they showed me their copy machine and would not let me pay them for the copies. I wanted to use the indoor pool. It has a...

Could not get the alarm clock to read the right time. When we called the front desk and asked how do we set the correct time, their answer was you have to take the back off and use a special device. Really? You can't change the time on the alarm clock? Poor planning.

Guest VetteGirl2014- Thank you for the review. We appreciate the feedback as it let's us know if and how we can improve any areas of our facility. The alarm clocks require a screwdriver to change the time, but not the alarm. This is to prevent frequent time changes from guest to guest. However, I agree that our action should have...

This is one of the nicest Holiday Inns I have stayed at. It appears to have been a Hilton Garden Inn before. It was probably one of the best smelling hotel rooms I have walked into. Everything is very clean and newly furnished. The staff was friendly and welcoming. There appears to be a lot of dinning options near by....

Stayed here for a wedding in June and it was very nice. Everything was clean, employees were all welcoming and friendly and the price was very reasonable. I was surprised that there was not continental breakfast but we ate breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good and also reasonably priced. Would stay again!

Effingham has a number of hotels available for travelers, but I would strongly recommend stopping your search right here. Lovely decor, food & beverage outlets available, shopping & dining within walking distance and a friendly and warm group of hospitality professionals. Hat's off to Heather & Jess - and the extraordinary housekeeping team - for making our stay simply wonderful!

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this facility was so much more than a hotel. Not only was it clean and smoke free, but it was also comfortable. I don't think I've ever seen so many pillows on a bed...5! The towels were not thread-bare either. The people at the hotel (a convention facility) were very friendly and helpful...
