The Eagles Nest Hotel is a 118 room hotel and conference center overlooking the mighty Mississippi river in scenic downtown Quincy IL. They offer guests free WiFi, breakfast, indoor pool, guest laundry facilities, business center, and a variety of rooms.
Last weekend my husband and I stayed in the jacuzzi suite at Eagle's Neat. It wasn't our first stay there. In fact, we spent Super Bowl night in the family room with my sister and her husband. And we were able to do so for free.
Eagles Nest Hotel is very actively involved with Facebook and they sometimes hold giveaways for overnight stays. My sister won Super Bowl Sunday and my hubby won for a stay last weekend. Regardless of the fact that we didn't pay for our stays, I promise I'd still say how great the place is even if I'd shelled out the money.
A small campfire ring and picnic bench is located at the back of the hotel. The staff was kind enough to let us build a fire Friday night and gather around.
Of course every hotel has its cons and this one was no different. There are three floors and the elevator doesn't go to the second, only to the third. I didn't get the gist of the whole story but, from my understanding, it's an original elevator to the building and was made that way. Another con was that the pool was out of commission. The part for the heater was broke and the pool was closed because it was too cold to swim in. Free passes to the local YMCA were offered as a condolence. The other con (and it's a personal one) is that Jason and I were to have received a Texas Roadhouse gift card as part of our giveaway package. It was not available to use last weekend and I'm not sure when we'll be receiving it. (I can't complain too much there because we did receive a free weekend stay, after all.)
Eagle's Nest Hotel not only holds wonderful giveaways, they also reach out in other ways. In fact, this weekend the hotel is holding an indoor garage sale with several booths to help benefit a local family whose child has a medical condition. And yes, I will be there!
If you're ever in Quincy, IL or in the area and need a place to stay, I strongly suggest Eagle's Nest Hotel & Conference Center. The staff is friendly, the place is comfy and cozy, and it's locally owned.
