“Great staff, great room, great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The staff was incredibly friendly and treats you like royalty. The room was sparking clean and the location was close to several restaurants. The pool was refreshing. The breakfast was common but tasty. The staff was constantly concerned with your comfort from upper management to the breakfast area. The place to stay in Springfield, Mo.

Room Tip: Tell the front desk that you want a Cardinal room!

We are conveniently located in central Springfield, and within walking distance to many great restaurants. Thank you for recommendation, and I hope you choose to stay with us again. We enjoyed housing the Springfield Cardinals!

We are currently checked in here and I love it. Our bed is comfortable the pillows are fluffy its clean. We got a nonsmoking room that is actually nonsmoking. I love the blue beige and white in the rooms. Breakfast was hot, staff was great. Regina at the bar was really friendly. We paid abt the same as for a discount motel but this place is leagues above. I'll stay here anytime

It was late night and we were in the middle of no where. Took the IPhone and used Hotels.com to find something in the closest city - Springfield MO. We were headed south and wanted something on the South side to help us start the next day back to Arkansas. We were completely surprised when the discount rate captured a gem of a hotel. The staff both night and morning were friendly and helpful with directions. The breakfast was way more than cold Danish, orange juice and coffee. Try it. I think you will like it.

It more than met our needs. The breakfast was great...sausage gravy & biscuits, waffles, scrambled eggs, hash brown along with the typical cereal, bagels, coffee & OJ. The pool was sparkling clean as were the sheets and towels! If you have problems with the internet connection in your room, let the front desk know and they will reboot the system for you! The location was convenient to so much of what we needed.

My husband and I stayed at the Lamplighter for 3 nights. We had a family member in CCU at Mercy Hospital. When I went in to rent the room the desk clerk was very pleasant. So asked me if there anything she could do. I told her my situation and food and a bed for us to sleep in. Next morning the desk clerk wished us good luck. This is how they were the whole stay. Very concerned and helpful. The restaurant thats there is great to. They breakfast at the hotel was excellent. I mean it was just as good as my favorite restaurant in my home town. I will definately stay again. I cant say enough good things about this place. Everything was PERFECT. Its a 5 star at a affordable price.

Stayed here on a weekend. Front desk service was very good. The rooms and furnishings are a are little dated. The public areas could use an update as well. Room was clean and comfortable overall. Decent value. Would stay again for the rate, but would not want to pay much more.
