Nice

A very good value, a popular motel, comfortable room. We had stayed there a week prior and decided on a return visit. I felt the breakfast was not as good, the biscuits were not fresh and there was no gravy. Also, the internet seemed pretty slow. It is a nice place, and I would stay again.

Love this place!!

I've stayed here twice, once coming back from Texas, and once staying in Springfiled. It's right on route 66, has the history, the look and feel of a hotel for route 66 travelers, but has been wonderfully updated to stay competitive with the times. I wish there were more hotels that were like this one - check in, drive up to your room good to go. And a fantastic breakfast to top off a great nights stay!!! Stay here, it's worth it!

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.

Great accomodations for the price

Great little breakfast. Wonderful staff. Small rooms, but very clean and up-to-date. Hairdryer, iron, ironing board were all provided (wish I'd known this beforehand). Don't pass this up if you're looking for an economical but great little "memory lane" motel. I would stay here again.

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
