Nice hotel good central location. Good breakfast with excellent selection. It rained a lot the 2nd day we stayed and the roof leaked in many spots all over the lobby area. There were buckets catching rain every where. Our room had a musty smell like it had been damp from something, I am guessing leaking roof running down the walls.... More

We stayed one night at University Plaza hotel. The room was very comfortable - no complaints. We were attending an event at JQH Arena and the hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the arena, so that was very convenient. The breakfast was impressive. Definitely not your standard free breakfast! The breakfast and convenience alone made the hotel well... More

My family and I stayed the Sunday night before Labor Day at the University Plaza. This is a beautiful, nicely maintained hotel. The only issue we had was the breakfast in the morning. I referenced the guest book in the room the night before for the breakfast times. It clearly stated Holidays 7am-10am. We arrived for breakfast at 9am and... More

The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel was quiet and the rooms were pretty nice. The breakfast was decent for a hotel. The biggest drawback was the beds...VERY hard. There was also no hot water for showers. Overall, it was a pretty good deal for the money.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was very nice, the convention was great, breakfast great. Drove to Branson and Missouri Botanical Gardens. Just one problem: the key card did not work getting in and out of door leading to outside pool. But there were other doors we used going thru indoor pool area.

We have stayed at several hotels in the Springfield area and this was the best one. They have an indoor and outdoor pool which helped with over crowding. The hot tub was great. The breakfast was better than most free breakfasts, if you know what I mean? The staff was friendly and helpful. The air conditioner worked well compared to... More

Following Route 66 brought us tired to Springfield. Even though Cardinals were playing, very helpful reception staff managed to find us a good room at this hotel. A short walk brought us to a couple of bars/restaurants. All in all, a good place to chill out for an evening.

My family and I stayed here as part of our annual convention. This was our first time taking part and coming to Springfield, Missouri. The building looked great from the outside and was visually appealing. Our grandchild loved the fountains and the pool. I found the rooms really outdated and our bed was hard. I was expecting more in the... More

The rooms were dirty and we had mold on our ceiling. The front desk staff was very unprofessional, rude, and not accommodating at all. I have been to a lot of hotels and this was by far the worst experience.

We are on our way to drop our daughter off at college. Spent the night here and loved everything about it. Lovely spacious room, excellent hot and cold breakfast buffet and comfortable beds. Staff went out of their way to be helpful. We were able to walk for 5 minutes and had a dozen choices for supper. Great experience!
