The State House Inn, Springfield

Listed under

A very popular downtown hotel. The State House Inn is within a 10-minute walk of Illinois State Capitol, Korean War Veteran National Museum, and Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site.

“We took a three week trip to the US: New York to Chicago followed by a road trip along part of Route 66, up the Mississippi and back to Chicago."

"The State House felt new but is furnished with 60’s style tables and chairs – very apt for the Route 66 experience. It was very clean and friendly, although it was chaos checking in on the day we arrived. This was due to it being the final night of the Illinois State Fair and the hotel was full to capacity."

"Our room wasn’t huge - fairly standard for a chain hotel - but very nice and the bedding was lovely - crisp and white. A nice touch was the voucher for a free drink each at the bar! Breakfast was fairly standard fair with the nice touch of a waffle-making machine! Location was wonderful, quick walk to the centre of town and nice places to eat (we enjoyed Augie’s Front Burner).”

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
