Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wiu32 Enjoyed my Stay!
From check in to check out, my stay at Springfield's Holiday Inn Express was pleasurable. My room was clean and comfortable. The shower had great water pressure and plentiful hot water (both a must for me to give high ratings!) The staff was polite and friendly. Breakfast was so-so, but what was offered was good and I've certainly been in hotels with worse breakfast offerings. I would definitely stay there again. One suggestion: Get a light for the back door on the Crowne Plaza side. It was a little spooky to walk between the hotels without a welcoming light over that door .

Property seems a bit older vs. most I stay at. Room had a funny stale smell. Given the proximity to other locations, probably won't be doing this particular location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John2626 Great Value in Springfield
We stayed one Saturday night while in Springfield to attend the Route 66 Mother Road Festival. The hotel met or exceeded all our expectations for a modern "express hotel" experience. Of special note was the super cleanliness of the Non-smoking room and the comfort of the king-bed, not to mention the better than average breakfast featuring some really scrumptious cinnamon rolls. I will be staying there again in the future.

Our stay was a great experience! Very easily located just off I-55. The curb appeal of this HolidayInnExpress was lacking, but once inside we were very pleasantly surprised! We had a great stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimjr21 nice place to stop
This Express is why I am a Platinum member. Excellent service, clean, great beds and showers, with a decent hot breakfast in the morning. Room was very quiet when I realized the next morning that a huge pump was running outside all night and it never bothered me at all!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott698 Good weekend get away
Everything was what i knew i would find staying with Holiday Inn. There where a couple of issues that where no big thing. When checking in was not received as a priority point member as i have been in other locations. Also another issues was the noise levels of traffic in the hallways at night and during the day. other than that everything was fine. Great location for the hotel, lots of eating close by and if needed you could walk to a few. I took the shuttle from airport, and must say it was a good little trip the driver was nice, and was able to give me some good information for our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JBNAL Pleasant stay
We only stayed one night; however, we had a comfortable stay. Room was adequate, and the mattress was fairly new (and firm). Everything worked in the room and it was clean -- important after a long day on the road. We were surprised how expensive it was, but I expect that was because of the Lincoln connection, which was precisely what we came to see, while on a road trip to visit relatives in another state. It was easy to find with a friendly staff. We'd stay there if we pass through again.

Had no problem finding the place, being attached to a Crowne Plaza was something different. Reception was friendly and very helpful. The room and the king bed were comfortable. Breakfast was one of the better ones we've had on the trip.

The staff at the Holiday Inn were very cheerful, willing to help and quite personable! This was my first stay at this Hotel and I will definitely return for future conferences/events! The breakfast variety was plentiful and the workout room provided me with a chance to unwind and do some cardio!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Royce55 it was hot with no air.
It was hot outside, no doubt about it. Checked in on Friday
Left and got back in to the room about midnight. It was as hot in the
Room as it was outside. I knew nothing could be done at this hour, so I took a cold shower then went to bed. Left the next morning
After alerting the front desk to the problem and being assured that it
Would be taken care of. Returned to the room about 6:00 pm. The room was hot hot hot. Called the front des, sent up a person to fix it.
He put in a new air filter and said it was fixed and to give it an
Hour to cool down. An hour later no change. Went to the desk
Told them it wasn't working and they moved me to the room next door which was not a whole lot cooler, but I was tired and had to get
Up early Sunday. Got back about 8:00pm took a cold shower and eent to bed. I was dissapointed in this trip experience at HIE becauseof the of the lack of concern of the ppeople in charge. They
Didn't call the room to ckeck the air or if was working. No mention
Of refund or a reduced rate for next spring.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyinWi Bed was broken
The first room we were given - the bed was broken. The manager changed us to another room plus told us we would be awarded a free night at a later date but she didn't follow through. The second room also had a broke bed but it at least was usable. The base boards were dirty..filthy actually. The rest of the room was clean. This hotel definitely needs updating.

Our stay was enjoyable although the unit is quite old. Well maintained for it's age. I was extremely impressed with the day shift desk person, Anecha. She was very friendly, efficient and helpful in pointing out p[aces we would enjoy seeing while in Springfield. She took great pride in her job and really made us feel welcome.
Every hotel/motel could take lesson from her in attitude and customer service.

I need the Internet for work, my speed test came back a .1 Mbps. Takes about three minutes to load a page. I'm also platinum member that was given two double beds when they had quite a few rooms available. I'm going to stay with their competitors next time I'm in town. Very old ac system could not keep up.

This was a busy place. Breakfast on Sunday morning was tight. There wasn't enough room for everyone and some food items were out. (No milk in cartons, i.e.) The help weren't particularly pleasant either. Room was not cleaned. We won't stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fbonfis Visiting Springfield, IL, using HIE
I stayed with my family at Holiday Inn Express in Springfield, Illinois, for some days with my family, in order to visit Springfield.
It has been a good experience, the hotel is conveniently located close to the town.
Unfortunately it does not provide shuttle service (we have been told it brings you to Amtrack, provided that you have a valid Amtrack ticket), so we had to use the car for every movement.
There are McDonalds and other places where to eat on the other side of the road, but unfortunately there are no pedestrian crossing avalable, so it is very dangerous to cross the road, or you must take the car to cross the road.
It is next to the Crowne Plaza, and HIE guests can use its indoor pool at 14th floor, with great panoramic view.
A special thank to Denise and Jenny at the front desk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler05 Thoroughly Unimpressed
After a long drive from visiting family in Traverse City, MI (and on our way home to Norman, OK), my husband and I stopped at the Holiday Inn Express in Springfield, IL. We were exhausted from the long drive and ready to get some rest for the long last leg of our journey. Before our stay I had looked online at the photos of the property and room; based on that information, I felt confident in the quality and reserved the room. I regret that decision. The front desk clerk was pleasant and quick when checking us in. The lobby/breakfast area looked updated and clean so we were anticipating that same look/feel for our room. However, once we got to the room, we could tell that the update had stopped at the lobby. The room looked like it was original to when the hotel had first opened. The bathroom needed a deep clean as all the white tile and grout was really dingy. Additionally, there was a huge hump in the floor of the bathroom. I'll admit that we did not go back to the desk clerk to complain about the room. We had just gotten off the road from a LONG drive and were anticipating another long drive the next day. We just wanted to rest and didn't have the energy to cart our bags back down to the lobby and move again. If I am ever going back through Springfield, IL, I will definitely avoid this hotel.

Two rooms. One had damp carpet along the wall of the bathroom. Damp enough to wet your socks. Told management. Stay in Holiday Inn Express for work and leisure. Will continue to do so but won't stay here again.

I came into the hotel with no reservations and they gave me a good deal! The only issue is that all the rooms are basically the same...there are no upgrade options, plus if you want to go swimming, you would have to go to the hotel next door.

Three long black hairs in the shower...also razor shavings in the upper soap dish of shower. Obviously no one had cleaned the shower. Made whole stay feel dirty - we wore our shoes in the room the entire time. Too late at night to ask to change rooms....
