Love this motel. It’s my 6th time staying here. Love the laminate floors in the pet rooms. A good place to stay if you have pets. It’s has the flavor of the old time Route 66 era. Can’t see myself staying elsewhere in Springfield

Go online or call them. Their phone number 855-772-7788. Some people may not appreciate the atmosphere and the old hotel that has been updated, but I thought it was great.

It is safe for foot traffic nearby our hotel. Night time is worthy of caution, but that is a given at any motel.

Yes, there are a few rooms that are wheelchair accessible and there are handicap parking spots directly in front of those rooms. And the rooms have more space inside the rooms among the articles of furniture for the scooter.
