    « Great Stay »

    Very dependable in every way! Staff was very freindly and helpful. Knew my name when I checked in. Always clean room and clean lobby. Hotel decorated for the holidays nicely. Overall wonderful stay as always!

    « Friendly Staff, Thin walls and a so-so breakfast »

    In all honestly the Best Western really is the ONLY place to stay in Clay County. The beds are comfortable, however the walls can be thin so noise carries very easily. I grew up in Flora and walking in the staff at the Best Western treats everyone as if they are family. Everytime i would walk down the halls and see a staff member they would ask how I was, Good Morning, Happy Thanksgiving and so on. I could go on with the positives however there are a few negatives. The breakfast with the exception of the waffle bar is just so so. Biscuits that are cold and hard, and eggs that are the variety you get at McDonalds isn't exactly what I call a good breakfast. The gravy with the biscuits helps out a lot and as I said the waffle bar is fantastic. They lay out cookies every night for guests as well. I highly recommend the Best Western for any traveler who needs a good nights rest.

    « Cute and cozy »

    This place was simple and small- nothing flashy, but felt like I was taken care of in a clean, up-to-date hotel. Breakfast could have been a little better- no water or hot tea, only juices and milk that I could find. The breakfast area was small, but this is a small hotel in a small town. It is dog friendly, but I didn't see areas to dispense of my dogs droppings so I used the giant dumpster they put all of heir trash in. It was convenient for me, but I didn't want that smell in the trash right next to the entrance door.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    My husband had a singing engagement in Carmi, IL. He wanted to stay at Best Western. This was the closest one. I was not happy, because it was 45 minutes away, not a Bestwestern Plus and in a small town. I was pleasntly surprised. We stayed in a suite. It was spacious, with a seperate seating area and kitchen. The room was decorated well and the bed was comfortable. The staff was very pleasant.


    Very clean rooms and accommodations at a reasonable price. The staff were very helpful, friendly, and willing to assist in our special needs requests. The town itself lacks adequate decent dining establishments, but a Pizza Hut is located next to the hotel, and a McDonald's across the street. Parking is close to the front door and is safe with good lighting. The rooms and hallways are quiet and obscure noise. The hotel was full, but we heard nothing outside of our room. We did not hear any children or noise in our rooms although we had family with many children in the hotel because we were attending a family funeral.

    « clean hotel »

    nice clean hotel inside and out. we were in town for a funeral, and was so happy to find this hotel. we will stay again if in the area, or when we travel we will stay at a best western ,no complaints about this motel, other than the sink is not in the bathroom. we would of liked the sink in the bathroom but overall good place to stay.

    « Disappointed »

    I needed the extension cord behind the night stand and that area was filthy. Dust build up behind that table was horrendous and there was also a used tissue back there. Refrigerator did not cool well. Bed was like sleeping on a board.

    « Great hotel,and great's a 11 on a scale 1 to 10.caring people make the difference. »

    Me and my wife's 21st wedding anniversary.tryed to get a room in olney,they were all booked up.came to flora got the last room.this is a great hotel,very clean,great breakfast.compared to other hotels conteninal breakfast.our back tire on my motorcycle,almost blew out on us.I asked for 1pm checkout,cause sonic law can,t make till 1230pm.they said no problem, that is what business is all about.caring about your customers.

    « I'd stay again! »

    I have stayed at this hotel many times and I am always SO pleased with it. It's clean and the staff is THE best, and their rates are great! I would definitely recommend this hotel! You will not be disappointed!

    « My Hotel Experience with Best Western »

    Highly Recommend this hotel. I have stayed there on 3 different trips in the past year. The service is excellent. It is starting to feel like my home away from home and look forward to each new visit.

    « Best Western is Best »

    Although out in the middle of nowhere, an excellent place to stay with very friendly and accommodating staff especially at that late hour. I recommend this place. It wasn't very far off the beaten path, but just what we needed before returning to Hot Springs Village, AR.

    « Great value for the money »

    The hotel is clean and fresh. It appears to be recently updated. The bed and pillows were plush. The breakfast included hot items like sausage, egg patties, sausage gravy and waffles. They also had pastries cereal and yogurt. The price was great.

    « Great Stay »

    Fast consistent internet connection. Great rooms, neat and clean. Outstanding breakfast bar with great waffle bar toppings. Clean hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed 3 nights and will stay there again in future when in the area.

    « Best Motel in Town »

    This is the only very good motel in Flora. The others were much older and not as modern looking and did not show they were connected to a modern brand motel. We would stay here the next time we visit this area.

    « excellent stay in small rural town »

    Flora Illinois is a nice place to get away from the hustle bustle of the city. It is very rural, very laid back, very casual place. There are historical sites to visit and larger towns to experience shopping, movies etc. that are well within short travel distances.

    « Enjoyable »

    Very pleasant, professional staff; very, very clean. Continental breakfast was great and offered a very nice variety of choices. Whether just passing through or staying over and/or recommend to others would gladly stay here again.

    « Quiet hotel with friendly staff »

    After a long day of driving it was easy to find the hotel. Was pleasantly greeted upon arrival. Clerk even enrolled me in special frequent stay special offer. Room was quiet and the bed comfy. No problems.

    « Great place to stay »

    I have been staying at the Lorson Inn for years and it never fails to impress me. This is probably the nicest Best Western franchise you will ever stay at. Book your room ahead of time, it is often full due to it being the only quality hotel in the area. Staff is great! Many recent updates to the hotel itself.

    « Clean and affordable »

    Very nice motel with a few fast food restaurants near by. Room was very clean and smelled nice. Bed was comfortable and had plenty of plug ins for electronic chargers. Breakfast had more to offer than just the regular motel waffles,fruit,and breads. I would definitely stay here again at this motel with the friendly staff

    « Best value in the area »

    We've stayed here several times over the years. Good location for travelers using US 45 and US 50. Several eating options very near plus service station and a WalMart, CVS, etc. . Rooms and public areas just updated. A well-managed, small modern motel with friendly, helpful staff. A good value.

    « Staff of Stars »

    Always a pleasant and comfortable stay. The staff is excellent! I have had better mattresses, but this was quite comfortable. Breakfast is pleasant and the hotel is clean and well maintained. If you walk outdoors, you will also be pleased.

    « Impressed »

    Best Western has done an excellent job updating this hotel. The room was stylish and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend that you heat up your biscuit in the microwave before eating but other than that the breakfast was great.

    « Perfect stay for our family »

    Our family of 5 was in town for a wedding and was very pleased with the Best Western. All employees from front desk to breakfast staff were friendly, pleasant, and very helpful. The room was nice and clean with plenty of space. We called ahead and they had a roll away in our room when we arrived as we requested. The shower had great water pressure. Room had everything we needed and wireless worked well, too. The breakfast was nice with waffle maker, a station to make a sausage and egg biscuit, (even had gravy) a fridge with yogurt, cream cheese, hard boiled eggs, and much more. Waffle station had fresh fruit, chocolate chips, whip cream, etc. We would stay here again if back in Flora! Thanks for a great visit!

    « Pleasant repeat stay »

    We've stayed here before and have never been disappointed with the lodging. Fairly priced for a 19 year old BW that has been well maintained --- and is currently being upgraded with new furniture, flooring, etc. Nice breakfast room with eggs, sausage, pancake or waffle-maker, cereals, etc. "Secured" WIFI, flat screen TVs, etc. Quiet location on US 50 at north edge of Flora. Good value. Pizza Hut, Burger King, Subway and McDonald's nearby plus a CVS and WalMart.

    « Best Western Flora »

    Great value. Clean. Spacious. Comfortable sleeping. Breakfast available. Inexpensive bottled water. Easy to get to. Would stay again. Business or pleasure if pleasure in the area. Currently under construction, no carpet in hallway makes sounds from other patrons more audible. Once the construction is done, I'm sure it will be a quieter space.

    « A place of comfort with few other options available »

    In a low population such as Flora, there are only about three hotel/motel opportunities available. The Lorson Inn is really the only choice. Great staff, more than adequate rooms, and not even more choices at their breakfast bar make this the only real choice when in the Flora area.

    « Flora Stay »

    suites are very nice - noisy if next to the elevator - staff is excellent, internet slowed way down around 9 PM - also if you need to print something on the computer in the lobby, it is not connected to a network nor is there a spare jump drive to print from - so very limited with what I needed to do -

    « Clean Updated Hotel »

    Stayed here one night passing through the area. The hotel is in the process of updating. The lobby is nice, inviting and clean. The front desk clerk both at check in and check were very friendly and thanked me for my business. I reserved a King Suite for about $90 and it is a value. The room is large including the bathroom. Plenty of space to feel at home. The room was very clean and quite. Also the temperature was consistent and the blower wasn't too loud. They do offer a free breakfast but I left early so did not have an opportunity to try it. Overall if in the area again I would stay at this hotel as it is a nice clean hotel with friendly staff and reasonable rates.

    « Business stay »

    The hotel lobby and rooms were very clean. Many of the rooms have been remodeled and include a refrigerator and microwave. The baed was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and were helpful in finding local restaurants to dine in. For a small town hotel the overall quality and cleanliness of the hotel was a nice surprise.

    « Nice & comfortable stay »

    Always are pleased with our room and haven't had any bad experiences at the Best Western in Flora. It's the only place to stay in town. We have stayed there many times over the years and have always had a pleasant time there.

    « Lorson Inn »

    The Lorson Inn is a very good motel. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. They serve what I would call a buffet-style breakfast which is included with the price of the room. All-in-all, the Lorson Inn is a good place to stay when you visit Flora Illinois.

    « great place »

    stay here twice a year winter and summer and never had a problem. beds are very comfortable, extra fluffy pillows everything worked..(have stayed in places where it did not). Already booked for summer stay.

    « Value for your $ »

    This hotel is very clean, up to date,and the staff is friendly. Great value for the money. I came to Flora with my wife, sister in law and brother for a family funeral. Our stay was very comfortable and the breakfast was good too. My brother paid 20.00 more on one of the "discount" sites. I booked my stay on the hotel's website. I would stay here again.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    Staff are all friendly, great breakfast. They cater to the hunters during hunting season and are very accommodating. Rooms have recently been updated including beds and décor. Internet service is great. Home town friendly with hometown atmosphere.

    « stay »

    Very nice will stay again Good location nice breakfast (need to be faster on refilling it though) Dog friendly Perfect location would of been nice if there was a pool Refrigerator and microwave in room

    « What a Nice place to stay! »

    On Family business and was extremely pleased at the Lorson Best Western. The staff were over the top friendly. The Hotel was very clean, cutely decorated for Halloween. The breakfast fare was more than satisfactory, from sausage biscuits and gravy, sausage patties and eggs and do it yourself Belgian waffles, with OJ, Milk, coffee, cereal, pastries, all unexpected from this Hotel located in a rural area.

    « Nice Hotel in a Small Town »

    I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the years for work, and have never been disappointed. There are not many hotels to choose from in the area, and this is a very good choice. The rooms are clean and updated, and the staff are friendly and attentive. The free breakfast is OK, but perhaps a little below average, and could benefit from a few more choices. I would not hesitate to stay here again if I needed a room in the area.

    « Nice Hotel »

    This hotel was very nice. The rooms were updated and very clean. The continental breakfast featured a variety of foods and beverages. The hotel is in a great location. The internet was easy to connect.

    « Best hotel in the area, by far »

    I regularly stay at this hotel. Never have I encountered a dirty room. Staff is always pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Pizza hut next store, very convenient for the family who enjoys pizza. Wal-Mart about half mile West. Burger King within walking distance. McDonalds, subway across the street.

    « Very Pleased »

    Very nice hotel, clean and newly remodeled. The people are very courteous. It was close to where I was staying which made it very handy. The breakfast was OK and in a room all by itself. Overall, I was impressed the minute I opened the door to the time we left.

    « My number one choice »

    This particular hotel is my number one choice. When visiting family in Southern Illinois, this is a great location for me. Always peaceful and relaxing at this hotel and I always feel at home. Great staff and wonderful breakfast. I've always found it to be clean and the internet is easy to connect and fast. I love this hotel.

    « Great Stay »

    My wife and I had another enjoyable stay at this Best Western Inn. The room was very clean and quiet and the breakfast was tasty and filling. This is an extremely clean motel and it is located close to several eating establishments. I would recommend this Inn to anyone wishing to stay in the Flora Illinois area.

    « I like this motel »

    If you stay in a motel in Flora, there's not many to choose from. This is easily the best one in town. Hot breakfast, convenient location and friendly staff. It typically has clean rooms as you expect.
