As a baby boomer I grooved on the 1960s vibe of the decor, nicely updated inside. Hotel is run by the Choice Hotel Group but not cookie-cutter, which I loved. My room faced west and was bright; air-conditioning worked beautifully; bed was comfortable. Bathroom was especially nice with a quick-filling tub. Breakfast is plentiful and good (eggs, cereal with low-fat milk, waffles, more). The hotel is within a mile or less to all the sites in the center of Springfield: the Lincoln Museum, Library, home, etc., as well as good restaurants. Park your car and forget about driving. The staff was super-friendly and helpful with directions, etc. Very courteous all around When I discovered at my doorway on the 2nd morning that my room key card didn't work, the housekeeper on the 6th floor went down to the lobby to get me a new one. TIP: Don't store your room key card next to your cell phone. For some reason, it deactivates it.
