My son was on spring break and on our way to the Ark Encounter and when I noticed that our path would take us through Springfield, I knew my 4th grader would appreciate seeing Abe Lincoln stuff. I went online and booked the package with tickets to the museum, which was a great bargain. When we arrived, we received our...

I live out in the country and my car broke down. This hotel is right next door to the hospital I work at. They give the nurses a discount when we need to stay there when the weather is bad, icy roads, car problems etc, so that we can come to work. It is very comfortable and clean, with kind...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review, we appreciate it. We are happy to extend that discounted rate to the hospital employees and you are correct, we do have a discounted rate for families with loved ones in the hospital and our complimentary shuttle runs Monday - Friday from 5 a.m. - 10 p.m. however,...

Took a chance and so glad we did. This clean and updated hotel is right where you want to be if you're doing a Lincoln trip to Springfield. Easy walk to all the Lincoln tourist's stops. I usually judge a place by the linens and cleanliness, Carpenter Street Hotel did not disappoint. They even have a shuttle to take you...

This was close to Memorial Hospital. It was a little tricky as our GPS did not take us straight to the hospital, but we did manage to locate it only a few blocks away. The staff was very friendly upon arrival. They offer breakfast and transport I believe at 5am, however we needed to be at the hospital by 5...

The room was clean, the food was good, and the staff was helpful. It was a convenient location to the places we were going in town. It was easy to find a half mile or so north of downtown on 6th street.

Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. It's not a luxury hotel, but it checked all of the boxes for us. The breakfast had both hot and cold options - the sausage and egg casserole was very good! My wife had an early morning procedure at one of the hospitals and we got a good night's sleep.

I've said it before - It's the people! I had to make a quick trip to Springfield for a family emergency. The hospital gave me a list of local hotels with special hospital rates; Carpenter Street was the highest rated hotel on their list that also offered a free shuttle. It was not the cheapest on the list, but the...

What a great place to stay while visiting Springfield Illinois. The PM desk person, Xavier, bent over backward to make our stay great. The room was a normal hotel room, but, very clean and well kept. I would definitely stay there again if in Springfield.
