We booked this room because of the location and cost expecting it to be nice since it was a Holiday Inn property. We were pleasantly surprised that is was MUCH better than we expected. So much so, we were sad that we didn't have more time to take advantage of the pool, jacuzzi and sauna. We did get to enjoy... More

This is a nice place to stay, one that we have frequented often and will continue to do so while our son is in college at LCU. The staff is great and very accommodating. The only drawbacks are the small area for breakfast and small foyer area.

Thank you for the good hotel. We also went to the restaurant next door. It was Mexican food. The food was very good. We may be back though here after trip to the east. We slept very good and wake up refreshed.

First, we are not picky people and just looking for a normal $100 a night hotel, but this property just needs maintenance. My first indication was the outside siding of the hotel was cut off by about a foot. That indicates it was rotten at the bottom and they were thinking about patching it to make it look better.

Tremendously surprised over this hotel. Great room, Great Breakfast, and Great Staff. Hotel had the feel of luxury like larger hotel chains (i.e. Marriott) with Indoor swimming pool and great staff. Breakfast was really good and had quality options to choose from to start my day. A unique thing about breakfast were the "To Go" boxes for Cinnamon Rolls. Beds... More

We travel in this area frequently and this hotel is very close to Springfield without all the traffic. The beds are comfortable and the room is clean. Breakfast is also very good here. They give you many choices of breakfast foods. This is a great place to stay.

This place was great. I had just come from another nearby cheap hotel that had a flea infestation and then refused to give me a refund. So, I was pleasantly surprised by the luxury type feel of my room. It felt more like a Marriott or Hilton. The bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast was more like a full... More
