This place is within walking distance of many of the Lincoln historical sites. Room are somewhat small, but adequate. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good. Only complaint is that we left our room around 10 am and when we returned at 4 pm, the room had not been made up--I think there is no excuse for this...

We spent two very pleasant nights at this hotel while touring the Lincoln sites in and around Springfield. The room was clean and comfortable with good amenities. The hotel location is ideal for visiting the Lincoln sites. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff were always very friendly and gracious. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Springfield.

We stayed at the State House when visiting Springfield for some Lincoln nerdery. The location could not be beat as it is in walking distance of the Lincoln Library and several other Springfield attractions. The hotel was clean and quiet. There's a good bar for happy hour, too.

My husband and I were recently in Illinois for a family wedding. It also happened to be our 12th wedding anniversary so we decided to go sightseeing in Springfield and spend a night at a B&B. We checked in to the B&B and it was aweful. It's possible the owner should be on the show about hoarders. Amenities listed on...

We had to go for a swim meet for our son. We travel a lot between swimming and basketball, so we need to keep costs down. Lately we have had more than our share of disappointments. The room wasn't huge and it didn't have flat screen tvs, but they were adequate in size, so very very clean and the bathrooms...

I must admit that the outside appearance of the hotel isn't that flattering, however, from the moment we entered the reception area we were met by friendly staff. The room was clean and furnishings suited a building of that era. Bedding was comfortable. There is no parking inside the building boundary, but free parking is available in a car park...

We enjoyed our stay at The State House Inn. Close to all of the Springfield attractions. The staff and service was excellent and the room was fine for our travel. Liked the breakfast! Would stay here again when visiting Springfield.

I have been staying at the State House Inn for extended business trips for six months out of the year for the last 4 years. I continue to stay here because of the hotels proximity to the capitol, and the personal service I get from the guest services manager. Unfortunately, this year the quality of the housekeeping has declined dramatically....

We stayed here for 1 night whilst on a road trip Good points - good location, clean large room, free parking, free wifi, welcoming staff Not so good points - early check out, breakfast finishes at 9.30, walls were paper thin, I could hear the conversation in the next room at 11.30 at night, then heard the house keeping gossiping...

We recently stayed here for three nights. The pros - location, staff, price, ample free parking, breakfast included in room rate. The cons - small room size, small "double" beds, lack of certain amenities. All of the staff that we encountered at this hotel were simply great. The price is reasonable and includes continental breakfast. The breakfast each morning included...

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
