Super Clean and Inexpensive

28/11/2016 677randyp, St. Charles, United States

Very surprised (pleasantly so) at the cleanliness and clean smell of the rooms. For the price, I have never stayed at a nicer motel. It was convenient to all kinds of shopping and event venues, and ... more

677randyp: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We are glad that you were pleased with what we have here, and the way we keep it. We are definitely fortunate to have the location that we do, as Springfield really grew up around this spot. It really does put you in close proximity to many sights and attractions, as well as many other things. If ever you return to Springfield Missouri, we hope that you might come and stay with us again.

Yes a FIVE! But please read on!

This is a wonderful motor court in the great tradition of Route 66 on which it stands. Don't expect large, modern, fanciful etc. This place is very clean, fresh, constantly upgraded and remodeled so t... more

Daniel F: While it is always great to see a first time guest enjoy their stay, it is humbling to be appreciated enough to have a guest keep coming back. We must be doing something right. Yes, this being the historic site that it is, we really can't do much in the way of making our rooms bigger. What we have, though, we try to make the most of! We hope to keep seeing you for many visits to come!

Very unique

chrisp05: Thank you for taking a chance on staying with us! It is great to see that you were not disappointed! There are not many motels like ours left that can take as much pride in the property as we do here. We routinely surprise people with how well this property has been kept, and we look forward to continuing to do so. Thank you for taking a little of your time to give us a review!
