Room was nice, staff was pleasant. Was pretty noisy due to amount of people in lobby/atrium. Booked through 3rd party and informed that a complimentary breakfast was included, however, it was not. Good place to stay for one or two nights.

Unfortunately, we didn’t discover this until the morning after the worst night in a hotel…ever. When we arrived after driving to Springfield from Houston, TX we checked in around 8:45 pm to a reasonably pleasant guest services attendant. Although, she gave me no information on check out time or our breakfast options. The lobby was already filled with many drunk...

Excellent place to stay, would stay there every time I'm in Springfield. That said, was surprised that the room did not have a small refrigerator. In addition the bar closed every night at ten PM - should stay open at least to eleven.

Rooms are fairly standard and give a good level of comfort. Location is an easy walk into the centre of town to find bars and eateries in this college town. The...

Beautiful lobby and nice rooms. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Nice restaurant and coffee shop. The meeting rooms were nice but ours was crowded. Hotel is a bit expensive. The staff was very helpful for the most part.

The room perfect and the staff was quite friendly & helpful. I LOVED everything about the hotel except that the handicap rooms are a far distance from the elevator. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 & not a 5.

I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago, when I had to pick up my daughter, who attends MSU for Christmas break. I picked the hotel because it was close to campus and I got it for a good price through Priceline. When my daughter and I signed up for a 5k run there, I decided to try this hotel...
