Such a fun little stop and a well sized town with lots of chain options for eating along the street you find this hotel. Loved the history they've kept alive here and enjoyed the room. We traveled with a dog and they share a non refundable $10 for that. Recommend for sure!
Great Route 66 hotel. Very reasonable rates and in a good location. However, there's not too much to eat around here. My 9-month old son and I ended up walking to George's Steakhouse (which wasn't really a steakhouse) right next door.
Loads of photo ops. They've got an old-school fire truck, and some old gas pumps. We spent about 20 minutes taking pictures after we checked out. Plus Elvis stayed there!
Love this and the location!! Tracy at the office was awesome and efficient...super kind!! Our room is clean, safe and updated. The owner takes great pride in the history of Route 66. Such a nice walk through history on our trip out West.
Would love to come back and explore more of a great town of Springfield!
Great place to stay with a vintage feel. Got the king suite with bunks to accommodate our family of 5. Kids loved the pool and hot tub too. A charming Route 66 Steak and Shake is just down the road as well as several eateries nearby. Great way to end our last night away on our road trip.
We stopped here along our trip to Oklahoma. It was great! Friendly staff and very clean. I’m so glad we stayed here. Shower was hot and breakfast provided in the morning. If you are coming through I highly recommend you to stay here. Plus it’s pet friendly!
Very quaint, clean, with very friendly and helpful staff! Continental breakfast was good, fresh, filling and they even had non-dairy milk which made this vegan traveler very happy!
Perfect for our quick getaway. The $10 per night per pet was perfect for us. The amenities and entire grounds was very clean and well-kept. The staff were friendly. It's only 5 minutes from some fantastic local eateries!
Fun place to stop. Really cute retro vibe. Stayed with husband and kids and we all truly enjoyed it.
Our suite had a Jacuzzi tub but definitely had an old school, Rt. 66 feel! Loved it!
