We stayed here because my son had a hockey game vs MSU. It was right around the corner from the rink. Close to restaurants, shopping, and a great craft brewery ( Tie and Timber). Amazing price, tasty breakfast, clean comfy room, and nice staff. Can’t ask for more!

Hotel's Favourite
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

Our stay was perfect! The decor was on point. The staff was friendly. The room was clean. Breakfast was great. We want to come back and do a photo shoot here. The classic cars were a great touch on route 66.

This place is a hidden gem! Love its Route 66 history, super clean, great value, well lit, and updated pet friendly rooms. This will be our “go to” place anytime we are traveling through the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great overall experience!

I always stay at this hotel when visiting my daughter at Evangel University. It's clean, updated, and the proximity to Evangel is great! Staff are always friendly and helpful! It's not a luxury hotel - but I always have good stays and sleep great!

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very kind and attentive. The rooms were clean and we had enough towels for everyone. Everything in both rooms worked and the Television was easy to use and even had a guide to follow. We will stay here again. The beds were comfortable. We were surprised at the 1.7 rating. This is an old school Best Western but had all we needed.

A motel for the ROUTE 66 aficionado but NOT for a light sleeper. Had wanted to check this off on my "ROUTE 66 TO DO LIST" and glad I did, Front desk an easy check-in and the room, to start, was comfortable and clean and WOULD HAVE BEEN a nice evening stay until the TV (remote) did not work. Front desk person tried their best to remedy this minor problem (apparently the TV service people had jsut been in the last few days.....really???) After a long while I was moved to another room which was nice but a bit of a bother. Bed was comfortable and all the amenities were quite pleasant. Until the middle of the night. On this particular Thursday night (actually around 2 to 3 a.m. Friday morning) Glenstone Avenue became a racecourse for ignorant and disrespectful drivers with load motorcycles and junky cars using tomato cans for their mufflers. I did not stay for their breakfast which looked like it would be served in a Route 66-themed cafe setting. This stop has been checked off my list and I will certainly NOT be returning.

Response from Rail Haven Management, Guest Services / Front Office at Best Western Route 66 Rail Haven
Responded 3 weeks ago
Thank you for your review. We are checking in to the tv issues and are very sorry you had to encounter these issues. We are on a main street in Springfield, which does bring traffic noise unfortunately. We definitely wish this was a bit more under our control. We understand how frustrating this is. Please accept our sincere apologies, and we hope you will reconsider, and give us another chance to exceed your expectations.

I do not write reviews often, unless the place truly made an impact on me (either positive or negative.) I drove to Missouri for NADD National Championship (dog things) this past week from Washington DC. On arrival to the hotel I previously booked they told informed me they overbooked (1030pm) and had no room for me. I scrambled and stumbled upon a less than sanitary hotel for that night. During the event several people recommended this Best Western. I arrived at 11am and spoke with Sandy. She not only had a room available for me, but also allowed early check in and advised me of the waived pet fee and discounted rate for the event. The check in was smooth, I was looking forward to taking a shower and taking a nap after a LONG night. Walking into the room I was blown away by the cleanliness and room in general as well as the amenities. Also note, the breakfast available in the morning is hot and delicious. When I checked out, Sandy was again at the desk and the process was easy. This Best Western turned my trip around for the better, thank you Sandy! If we return next year, this hotel will absolutely be my first choice.

It was clean but if staying here you may want to stay on back side of motel. We had a lot of traffic noise throughout the night & morning. Apparently a very busy road. The bathroom sink was in with the toilet & tub area which is already a very small area so was not a fan of that.
