great location

The best western is located close to town in Springfield Mo. It is close to the attractions in springfield. The rooms are a little smaller than I am use to, but considering the age of the hotel they are very nice. I would stay there again if I every go back to springfield.

Small room, not what we paid for

This was the place we stayed the night of our wedding. When I walked in to check-in I was told that normally they only rent to out of towners and next time to call after making a reservation to make sure. We payed for one room and got something much different. The Jacuzzi tub was not in the room and it had two broken parts. The room was extremely small and did not have a recliner like the one we payed for. Not a very good place to stay for a newelywed couple to start off their honeymoon

Awesome Nostalgia.

We have stayed here twice. Once around 2 years agon on a trip up from Texas, and then for a New Years trip. The first trip with a classic car felt just right pulling into the lot after a long day on the road and seeing a couple classics there to meet us. That trip gave us the confidence to stay here again, this time with the kids and the in-laws along. Another great stay. Comfy rooms, great breakfast options and a fantastic helpful staff were there waiting for us. I'd highly recommend this hotel, especially if you want to experience some of the Route 66 story.

Rail Haven

We arrived in a snow storm. Apparently, people in MO don't know about shovels or snow blowers. Nothing was cleared. Ice machine didn't work. The room was tiny. Staff was nice.

The overnight clerk was very kind and compassionate and worked to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our first flight was cancelled and our car rental was given away, but when we got to the hotel, we were treated with the utmost courtesy, kindness, and caring. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

Room was Decent and clean but Way too small

We stayed in Room number 416. We booked a double room but the room was so small that it was tough to navigate with 2 people. The bed was just a bit larger than a twin and definitely smaller than even a standard sized double bed. I suspect that we were given room because a agent provided a better price than a walk-in price. The room was clean and had a coffee maker, hair dryer, soap, shampoo but unless you are alone or prefer sleeping on top of another........... BEWARE !

Mother daughter getaway

My daughter and I arrived around 4 pm and got checked in. First thing we noticed was that the room was very nicely done and updated. It was a little noisy with the traffic off Glenstone, but it was a Friday night we stayed so after midnight it was fine. Would recommend this hotel based on good location, very clean and price.
