Don’t worry about lugging your toiletries. We got you covered!

Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash will be available in every shower. Finishing up the install on these this week. 

Soon we will reduce our carbon footprint and provide a better amenity for our guests, all with one small change. 

It’s the little things. ❤️

The lobby of this house welcomed many guests, but only for a short time as they flitted in and out to get keys and request service. 

We hope to welcome guests into the home to experience the history and enjoy the craftsmanship that has been preserved over the years. 

Turning our check in process virtual has allowed us the opportunity to work on this project. 

We thank our guests for their patience as the transition takes place.

The Inn consists of 3 buildings and a main house. 

Previously, the main house served as a lobby where guests would check in, grab a key, and return to check out and drop off their key. 

As charming as that task is, it’s turned out to be fairly inconvenient for most! So, with the changing times, we have automated the check in/out process with code door locks. 

You might ask about how to book a room or ask for service if the lobby is closed. We have that covered too. You can call, book online, or text us any time. We have virtual front desk managers available 8a-8p, 7 days/week. We also have a contact # for after hours. 

We hope to reopen the main house and offer a unique experience for our guests. Stay tuned and share with your friends.

Don’t miss out on this awesome event! Come for the walk and stay the night here with us. Have breakfast at The Lakeview or Lisa’s Cafe the next morning. Now you have a winter weekend plan!

Finding old blueprints and seeing plans of previous structures on this hotel property makes us excited to be a piece of the rich history that once was The Shelby Motel which included a house that’s no longer standing, pretty much smack in the middle of the property. 

We can’t wait to make our mark in a way that celebrates the history of the Inn and share it with all who visit. 

Here’s to the history and to the future! 
Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!

Oh the little nuggets laying around here are so fun. What were you doing in 1903? Likely nothing. lol

Caught yesterday on the Kaskaskia river. One of our guests shared their successful winter weekend fishing at the dam. 

Just a few blocks away, we are super close to your favorite fishing spot. Park your boat in our boat lot in the back and plug it in for a charge if needed. 

After a day on the lake or river visit The Takeoff for a little pub grub and some darts or pool!

The lobby area is such a cute spot to explore! We got the double king room for our family and it worked out beautifully. The kids slept great and everything was clean! The new bedding and cleaners were a big step up for us from staying in Shelbyville last year. Excited to see what other changes are to come!

The new processes have been so slick. We were given our code to get in our room and everything was clean with new bedding from last time I stayed in this hotel. I spoke with the staff a bit while there and they all were super helpful and cheerful. Great little hotel close to everything in town! The historic home was a blast to walk around in and see while we were there too. The kids loved it.

This hotel in Shelbyville was so great to stay in for our family! The room we stayed in was so spacious and for our needs perfectly! The host was so accommodating and helpful. We had a great day at Lake Shelbyville and was able to return to a quiet and restful hotel!

Rooms could use a refresh, but overall it's a great place to stay for a weekend. Plenty of space in the room, hot showers, responsive temperature controls, and quiet nights for sleeping mean it checks all the boxes. The TVs in the rooms have some parental controls in place, which is a little unusual, but you can still access the full complement of usual channels and watch your favorite shows. The staff is very friendly and will do what they can to make sure you have a great stay.

My mom and I stayed in one of the larger rooms of the hotel and it was great! We loved seeing the historic house during the check-in process and had a great stay in Shelbyville. Our room had a mini fridge and microwave with a coffee pod maker. And it’s walking distance to a bunch of places nearby and only a few minutes from the beach!

매일같이 깔끔히 청소해주고 사장님이 엄청나게 친절하십니다. 좋은추억 만들고 떠납니다 굿바이It is cleaned every day and the owner is very kind. We make good memories and leave. Goodbye.

Owner Ken is gracious and warm-hearted. The staff do an excellent job cleaning the rooms and leaving everything just right. We've been staying at Ken's over many years of family reunions in the local area and recommend you give the Shelby Inn a try - it's within walking distance of Druby's, the local place for ice cream and burgers, and so much more. The Shelby Inn also has a charming shaded place to sit outside when family members are meeting for morning coffee!

Had a family reunion, and everyone enjoyed their stay at Shelby Inn. Sure, it's nothing fancy. It's a town of 5,000, and we're lucky to have them. They're clean rooms and reasonably priced.

Very nice place to stay and close to everything. The office hours are 7am to 9pm and if you can't be there then they have a special way to make sure you get your keys to your room. I don't want to put it on here so I don't spoil the surprise. The house has an unusual story that goes with the reason why it's on the national historic landmark registry. The people that run this motel are very friendly and very accommodating. I will stay here Everytime I go to Shelbyville.
