Fantastic day on the road. Pulled out around 7:30am and had a 302 mile trip through some beautiful parts of Iowa and Illinois. Took a long time, but the weather was perfect, which makes all the difference.
I got the majority of today's footage on the trip down with shots of all the cars as well as all the enthusiastic townspeople out there …

Not a bad run compared to tomorrows trip - as we arrived early and before we could book in we went into down town Springfield and visited The Abraham Lincoln Museum - they may only have a short past compared to ours but they are very good at presenting it ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springfiel d,_Illinois http://www.visit-springfieldillinois.co m/Lincoln/Museum/ Glad we made the visit - especially as the Motel was out of the way, although clean and comfortable I wasn't ...

Route 66 from Bloomington, IL to Springfield, IL

... Olive and Litchfield before joining I-55 towards Glenarm. At Glenarm I left the interstate to travel a short distance off Route 66 to view the Sugar Creek Covered Bridge which like Route 66 has been by-passed by a more modern bridge. Back in Springfield I manages to snap the State Capitol building just before sunset and before retiring for the night with a Subway for sustenance. Top temperature today was ...

... by the end of the day saying the same thing over and over. There is not much original left in the house - but we were told not to touch the walls or doors and stay on the blue carpet. The only thing we were allowed to touch was the original railing to assist ourselves climb the stairs. Before we knew it we were out the back door and the tour was over. We then drove over to Lincoln's tomb and got there just with ...

Day 4 Kitsch and nostalgia in Illinois

So armed with our car and our EZ66 guide (easy, well we'll see) off we set this morning having retraced our steps by car to the original starting point on Adams and Michigan. After just a slight diversion ( the Chicago Fire and Rescue deciding to practice their skills Downtown and shut off several streets) we set off following our invaluable guide on the first part of our journey, 200 miles to Springfield, the State Capital.

Some sights en route included Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The State House Inn - an Ascend Collection Hotel Springfield

    Great Hotel!

    from

    We stayed here for one night on a last minute overnight trip to see the historical sites of Srpringfield and loved this hotel. The staff were helpfull and friendly, breakfast was great, room was very comfortable. If you need to stay in downtown Springfield, this is your best bet!

    WOW! You won't be disappointed!

    from

    We stayed here on July 2, 2005. We booked two rooms, asking to be near each other (elderly mom in 2nd room). They put us right next door to each other.

    Great retro decor

    from

    We just spent two days at this hotel.

    It was decorated in a funky retro theme.

    I highhly commend the staff.

    The front desk clerk both evenings was very helpful and extremely friendly.

    The bartenders both evenings were helpful, courteous, and friendly.

    The lady who ran the breakfast buffet for two mornings was a great person, helpful, friendly, and courteous.

    The housekeeping lady did a wonderful job of making up the bed and was very friendly.

    I recommend this hotel highly.

    Very Good for Springfield but.....

    from

    There are few quality choices in Springfield. My family's stay was quite satisfactory with one issue. I believe the beds have a mattress cover on them to add comfort. The beds were quite comfortable however, the mattress cover caused my wife and I to sweat during the night.

    Our two room suite was comfortable and my son slept on the futon sofa as it did not come with a pullout. Despite asking the front desk twice for a blanket for him, all we got were 2 sheets.

    Great Stay

    from

    We recently attended a family reunion and stayed at this hotel.

    Very nice, continually pleasantly surprised

    from

    Got a 2 room suite via AAA for 95 bucks, for a friday night. The 50's art deco interior theme concerned me a bit, but underneath everything was very modern and new. Kept finding things that were just better than expected, like the very good complimentary breakfast buffet, $1 bottles of beer at the smallish lounge, and excellent customer service.

    Great Value!

    from

    A pleasant change from the usual mid-price lodgings we've stayed at.

    The 60's decor was cool. The rooms were immaculate, with large windows prevented that caged feeling. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding. The communal office workroom with computers allows check of your email. The only drawback were the beds. The pillow-top mattress plus the down comforter was very uncomfortable. My bed sank me in the middle.

    Outstanding Property

    from

    The Quality Inn chain can often be uneven with wide variance in the quality of properties. The Springfield Quality is not only the best Quality property that I've stayed at, but far outclasses most Hiltons, Marriotts, etc. Rooms are as close to soundproof as you'll find anywhere, beds are very comfortable with high quality linens/comforter, quality toiletries, good water pressure from shower, free high speed internet in rooms, business center with high speed internet two printers and one scanner (a business center like none other), well-done hot/cold continental breakfast with attentive staff keeping supplies stocked and tables clean, very friendly and helpful staff (not sure where management finds such personable employees, but they are first class), and one block from the Capital building. Will stay here on every future trip to Springfield.

    Excellent in every way!

    from

    If you're tired of paying a higher price for a hotel, only to step inside the room itself to find it's just like everyplace else, you really should give this hotel a try. At a very competative rate, we discovered tasteful furnishings, easily THE most comfortable hotel bed i've ever slept in, a well appointed bath... even the towels are bigger! The full hot breakfast buffet in the morning is an added bonus (NOT the box of stale donuts and a carafe of day old coffee that qualifies as a "free breakfast" at some hotels). We've stayed there on three occasions, and the quality IS considtant. This is a real hidden gem in the Capitol City!

    So Cute

    from

    Had to go to Springfield on business and I wasn't thrilled. I got to the hotel late at night, and from the outside it had a drab motel look...another bland business trip. Once I got inside my whole opinion changed. The woman at the desk greeted me by name (she recognized my voice from the call I had made confirming my reservation)! The hotel lobby was spacious and inviting. The room was fantastic. It was immacualte, decorated in a great modern/retro design with interesting carpeting and furniture. The bed was fluffy. The soaps etc were great quality and smelled divine. I was actually sad that I couldn't stay longer. The entire staff was helpful and friendly. My best business travel experience.
