Nice place, friendly and helpful staff. There were a ton of people with little kids however, and the kids weren't the only noisy people. Screaming at the top of ones lungs and asking ones neighbor if their room

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We sincerely apologize for the noise during your visit. It is important to us that our guests experience a good night's rest. Please, at anytime during your stay, if you are having any issues, feel free to contact the front desk and we will try our best to resolve the problem. Thank you again for taking the time to give us your feedback. We hope to see you again in the future.
We stay in this Hotel once a year when we go down to see family and it never disappoints us. Great staff, hard working and very friendly. Rooms are always very clean and comfortable. Nothing is ever broken or in disrepair. Breakfast is included and there are enough choices-everyone can find something they like. A staff member stays in the breakfast room and restocks as things start getting used. They are very friendly they point out things so you know everything you have to choose from. If they see you looking for something they ask if they can help with anything. I was amazed-they even had almond milk in addition to skim, 2 percent and coffee creamer. Whoever the owner/Manager is-you should be proud! I've stayed at many best westerns and I like them better than Hilton's or other pricey Hotels to be quite honest. The cleanliness and helpfulness is unsurpassed.
Nice clean hotel even being the only major hotel in town. The staff was both friendly and helpful. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast while fairly typical was good as well they had biscuits and gravy as well as waffles with a little more toppings than others.
We always enjoy our stay here. Rooms are clean, the staff is courteous and professional. Everyone is always willing to help. Will stay here again when we visit the area. Good breakfast! Thank you! Five stars.
I always look forward to going back to Flora and staying at this particular Best Western. EVERYONE (caps for emphasis) is so helpful and cheerful. The rooms are so clean. The halls and entrance and dining area spotless each and every time. Terry, the manager, is a gem!
We stayed here recently while in town to watch a concert. We really didn't know what to expect being in a smaller town but this place was great. All staff was super nice, everything was clean and well maintained, beds were comfortable and you couldn't beat the price. Only thing they lack is a shuttle back and forth to Johnny and June's!! Lol. If we ever come back into town we will stay here again for sure.
We've stayed here many times over the past dozen years or so, visiting family and en route to and from Florida. Service and value has been very consistent. (One knows what to expect.) Recent facility upgrade has improved general interior appearance. Rooms have gotten new bedding, TVs, etc. Convenient location on U.S, 50 but quiet. Great free breakfast. Clean and tidy facility. Employees very friendly and helpful.
The only reason I can see this hotel being rated at 4.5 stars is because these people have never been to a 4.5 star hotel before. In my opinion, this hotel is extremely dated. The carpet in the hallways and rooms are dirty and need to be replaced badly. The heat/AC unit in the room was old and difficult to set a comfortable temp. It was more of a guessing game with a hot/cold dial. The walls and doors are thin...you can hear EVERYTHING. There is 1 luggage cart for the entire hotel. I would seriously suggest you bring your own TP if you're going to stay here. The TP provided was rougher than a cob, as they say in southern IL. :/ I would not stay here again.
This Best Western is just what it's supposed to be....clean and comfortable. Check-in to check-out was fine. Breakfast was the standard with no frills. We would stay here again if in the area. Recommend
Excellent hotel, very clean and updated, especially for a small town. Breakfast was good and the area was clean and well kept. Our room was nice and roomy, everything was clean and nice. My only small complaint would be the speed of the Internet. It was somewhat sketchy at times, but all in all it was adequate for my needs. I will definitely stay again when I'm in town.
nice place in the middle of nowhere.nice place in the middle of nowhere...ascfthyggrfhjulklolmnbvcxzaqwertyuioplkmjnhbgvfcdxszaqwsaxdefrcvgthybnjuikomjunhyttrrreewwqazxcvbnmlkjggfdsaqwerfedcvfrtgbnhyujmkioplmnhytrfedwsqazxdsfdgtyhbny
Very clean. It's always enjoyable when I come to this hotel. The staff are genuine, helpful and hospitable. You always feel welcomed.The hotel is located on Hwy 50, right off the highway, so easy access. Surrounded by easy take out restaurants. Very clean. I would describe this hotel as a home away from home. It's a small town so they know true hospitality.
Thanks for being so accommodating. We stayed over thanksgiving weekend and were very pleased. The front desk staff is wonderful and the breakfast is good and plenty. We always stay here whenever we are in town.
Consistently great service, excellent breakfast, clean rooms. ALWAYS my first choice when traveling to this area. Love the homemade biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Have stayed here at least half a dozen times in the last 5 years, and every experience has been positive.
Great breakfast. The room was a little small but the breakfast was great the the staff very friendly. The food was well stocked. The desk clerk on checkout was great. Will stay here again when we are back up that way.
Would recommend this hotel to future guests. Checkin process was quick, staff friendly. Very good area with good outdoor lighting when arriving late at night. Bed was comfortable and appreciated the extra blanket provided in the room.
The staff at this hotel are very nice and were helpful during our visit. The hotel is probably one of the only ones in the area so your options are limited and this is a fine place to stay while visiting relatives in the area.
excellent, helpful, competent caring staff - during pre trip planning and during my stay. for such a small town, off the path- this was a very pleasant stay and facility. facility clean, staff worked above and beyond the call of duty to be helpful
A great place to feel at home. Great people to be around and great place to get a good night sleep. If you want to get some good rest and be around friendly people that take great care of you this is a place to stay.
We were at the Best Western with a team of 12 year old Little League baseball players. The staff showed patience with the kids who did get a bit loud at times. They were always giving them encouragement as they left for the games. We appreciate the hotel GM allowing us to use the conference room during the stay for the kids to eat before the games or hang out in during the rain delays. Everyone in Flora showed professionalism and top notch hospitality.
This is a nice hotel-not fancy but I experienced no problems during my stay. The rooms are nice, the AC works well and the bed was very comfortable--also the staff is very pleasant. I will definitely stay there again.
This is one of the very best stays I have had at a hotel. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The facilities and room were spotless. When I back in the area I will definitely stay here again,
Our stay at the Lorain Inn in Flora, IL was perfect. We were in town for a family reunion and I believe we had most of the rooms. We were greeted with a Welcome Gift and red carpet service that continued throughout our weekend. Very clean rooms and shared facilities. The staff was helpful and friendly.
My husband and I travel to visit family in the area at least a couple of times per year. This is always our hotel of choice even though it's a few miles from where we visit. We love the location, the friendly service, the cleanliness and of course, a lovely breakfast. Our most recent trip was to attend a family funeral and they were booked up for the second night of our requested stay. They put me on a waiting list and called me promptly the next day to share that they had a vacancy and we could stay in the same room for the second night as requested. The staff is always friendly and caring. Always our choice of hotels.
ok stay, would stay again if not able to determine a better motel near by. staff very good, lobby very good, room clean. bed and pillows just ok, shower head great, towels did not dry well. carpet in room could be replaced. sink missing dispense nozzel.
Stayed 4 nights here while visiting family. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very quiet location. Could use some new mattresses and air conditioning unit didn't work real well.
This hotel seriously is lacking in amenities. Rooms were ok (carpets were sticky -- like they'd been cleaned but soap residue not completely removed). Rooms were ok -- not bad, but certainly not great. The bathrooms in the guest rooms are dim and the toilet sits very low. My main complaint is breakfast -- the breakfast area is insanely small for this hotel and it was not well stocked. It's so small that the items (there aren't much of them) can't be stacked on one wall, they're randomly located throughout the very tight room. I'd pass on this one.
Terry P, General Manager at Best Western Lorson Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We have worked hard in our small community to have a good place for folks to stay while in our area. There are times when we are full that we are challenged to get everyone in breakfast. I am sure it was frustrating to not be able to get your family in. We always take these reviews as a way to improve our services and facilities. We are sorry we did not get the job done right for you. Thank you again.
This ls one of the best I ever stayed in. Highly recommend it . Previous review I wrote I didn't rate it correctly error on my part . I've already made reservation for this August 2017 along several friends that have made reservation there also
Love this hotel. It is cleaner than any other in the area. Competitively priced and has a nice breakfast and very comfortable. Breakfast was from 6-10. We went at 9:30 thinking there wouldn't be much left. To our surprise everything was well stocked and tasted good. People are very friendly and accommodating. This is the only Hotel I will stay at down here. Have never been to a Best Western that wasn't very clean and comfortable. It's a name I trust.
Always a class act. Terry, the manager, just the best. Whatever he is being paid is NOT enough. Desk personnel and all others so friendly. Very quiet, a goo breakfast, good and plentiful parking. No freeway noise.
I changed my plans at the last minute and ended up staying here. It was an older hotel and the decorating was somewhat dated, but my room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was typical of a Best Western. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Reasonable accommodations are hard to find in this area. This Best Western is clean, but showing it's age a little bit. My AC was a bit on the noisy side and there was an intermittent knock in the plumbing in the bathroom, but overall, this is a good place to stay!!
I spent two nights here while in the area on business. My project was actually 25 minutes away in Olney but I choose this hotel based on reviews and the extra drive was well worth it! The hotel is clean and well maintained, the rooms are large and very nice. It is comfortable, reasonably priced and an all around excellent value. I would definitely stay here again and I normally don't stay at Best Westerns.
This was a great motel, very quiet and comfortable. Rooms were a nice size. The morning breakfast was very good...eggs sausage biscuits and gravy waffles cereal, yogurt and much more.The staff were very friendly.We plan to stay there on our return trip.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with our stay. Check in was smooth, hotel and room was very clean and comfortable. Rooms were nice and quiet. Beds were super comfy! We will definitely stay here when we are back in Flora.
Very nice clean hotel, excellent staff, nice clean rooms, nice fitness center, nice breakfast area, highly recommend. Great location, close to highway, close to fuel station and food options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This was a nice hotel. Seemed newer, we had a great stay. The rooms were super clean and the people were very nice. I would stay here again in a minute. The breakfast was typical of these types of hotels.
This hotel seems to be well maintained and clean. Staff was extremely friendly. My rooms was ready when I arrived. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Good bedding and pillows. Shower/tub rather small but not a deal breaker. I would stay here again without hesitation. Breakfast had the normal free selections. Blueberry waffles were very good. Easy in and out parking.
Friendly competent staff, perfect cleanliness, modern rooms, comfortable bed, newer TV's,wi-fi, full hot breakfast, above and beyond what you find in most small town hotel/motels.......and I have stayed in many!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 -
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
