What a gem of a place. Historic motel with spacious clean and nicely appointed rooms (fridge, micro, coffee maker, tv, wifi) pet friendly with nice green area to walk, swimming pool, breakfast included and friendly staff. Several restaurants near by. So glad that someone put in the time/energy/funding to restore this place. Will absolutely stay here on my next visit to the Springfield area.

Hotel's Favourite
We enjoyed our stay at Best Western Route 66 Rail Haven. It is an older motel, but was fixed very nicely & was CLEAN. It looked cozy & inviting. The bed mattress was very comfortable & we slept well. The staff was friendly & helpful. We enjoyed the 50's decor which included 3 vintage cars. My husband had fun with the old phone booth in the breakfast area, which connects to the front desk if you pick up the receiver. : ) Breakfast was better than the average Best Western breakfast. I liked the coffee machine which offered many options other than just regular or decaf coffee! I picked mocha-very good. If we are ever in the area again, we would likely stay here again.

Heard a semi automatic gun shooting in the middle of the night and saw a guy stretching with a gun in his hotel doorframe. Ended up calling the police. When we talked to the lady at the front deck and showed her a video of the gun shots while she was talking to another guest she said it was a car backfiring. She would because her boyfriend has a truck that does it. The other guest standing there said it was a gun. Ended up having to pack up and get to family gathering and called back to ask for a refund. She decided to lie more and tell me that the police were on site when the gun shots happened and they were there for a silver alert. I ended up calling corporate. Love the Jacuzzi but will never stay there again. I do not recommend.

On behalf of our entire team I would like to apologize that you did not feel safe during your stay with us. We take our guest's safety very seriously. During your original call the police were on property for a silver alert that had been issued for an elderly gentleman who frequently stays with us, and they were concerned and trying to find him. After receiving your call about the gun we covered our bases for the entirety of our guest's safety by checking with other guest to see if they had heard anything and rolling back the cameras to look for footage. The room that you stated was shooting a gun is a room that is designated to a guest that stays with us weekly for work and has always been very kind and respectful so we were a bit baffled, but still wanted to make sure everyone was safe. Our staff also checked with everyone staying in that area to see if they had heard or seen anything the next morning. When you came up the following morning and I spoke with you directly you stated that you had video footage of the incident. I asked to see it and you refused and left. We would have been glad to work with you further in any way possible to resolve this matter with said footage. Thank you so much for your feedback and we will continue to work hard to provide our valued guests with as much safety and care as possible.

Good location that’s was close to many attractions. Area is pretty quiet. The room was clean and the staff is friendly. We had a dog and the green area was in a good spot from room. A good selection for breakfast.

We loved the neon lights. The inside of the rooms are very clean and updated. Loved the parking by your door. Nice property grounds. Close to many tourist attractions. Hotel lobby has a classic feel to it. Nice gas pumps out front adding to the atmosphere.

This city is the 1/2 point for our trip to Texas. This is our 3rd time to stay in this hotel. We enjoy the cars, gas pumps, and decor that remind us of an earlier era. The king room is small, but sufficient for our needs. Everything was clean and the staff friendly. It is a good value.

Good overall experience! We didn't know the King, Elvis Presley (and his mother) stayed here. The rooms were clean and the service was good. This hotel was more rustic, like an old Route 66 motel...which it still is. I would visit this facility again in the future, for any Springfield, MO trips.

Stay was nice. Got in real late, and had to leave early. Nice classic feel. Has some old vintage cars and decorations to add to the experience. There is a light for the entire room instead of just small lamps, so that is a big plus if that is something you are looking for as well.

Very clean, but rooms are small. I have two little dogs and difficulty walking. Parking is right next to the doors of the rooms and easy to unload belongings from car to room. Large expanse of grass area right out the door for the dogs to exercise and relieve themselves. Very private and quiet. It was a very convenient and enjoyable stay. Perfect for out needs. Friendly, helpful staff.
