This motel is a gem. It actually has character and is efficiently managed. We travel every other month from NC to MO and most places we've encountered are dirty even though they say they are using accelerated cleaning methods due to COVID. This motel is spotless. It was everything they advertised. Very helpful staff and just a great place to stay in Springfield, MO.

Hotel's Favorite
Ok so first I was a bit weary bc it does look a little sus but after checking in, we loved it! At First, because of short staffed, we did have to wait about 45 minutes for a room to be cleaned, but we went to the huge bass pro down the street and had a great time there. A staff member called us right away to let us know our room was ready and we went back to the hotel. Room was spacious, king bed was so comfortable, kids loved the bunk beds, pool was fabulous and staff was super friendly. Hot breakfast was yummy too! Love the kitschy Route 66 stuff they have in the rooms and front desk. They even give out free post cards and stickers! I love how you park right in front of your door and we enjoyed sitting on our sidewalk area watching the cars go by and the sunset. If I’m ever in Springfield again I will definitely stay here. It’s not fancy or frilly but it’s comfortable and homey

The best value in Springfield for a good and quiet nights sleep. The bedding could not be better anywhere. Very clean and a little nostalgic. Nothing fancy but is you room really the reason for being there? Efficient service and quiet and centrally located.

The room was clean, the team was very helpful and responsive, the decor was the most fun. Reminded us of a step back into the 50's only with new & clean fixtures and facilities. The entire property was well kept and inviting. The location was close to everything we traveled to see.
