I was in town for a funeral needed a cheap place to stay for two nights and was dreading what I'd get for my limited budget. I had read several of the, mostly negative, reviews of the cheaper places to stay in Springfield and was not looking forward to having to "settle" for the least worst. When I arrived at the Motel 6, I asked to see the room before I signed on the dotted line. Edna, who works the front desk (day shift), was more than happy to let me see the room first...a good sign. I opened the door to find a clean, VERY clean, room and bathroom. Everything looked updated and newer...there was nothing "shabby" about this room (107 by the way). It was a little warm so I turned on the air-conditioning which QUICKLY cooled down the room. No strange smells, no musty odors...this was actually gonna be liveable. The two nights that I stayed, Tuesday & Wednesday, were very quiet, and I was able to get a good night's rest. The beds were newer, firm and yet comfy like a pillow top (which they may have been, I didn't check to see). The bed linens were bright and smelled fresh, as did the towels and wash rags. (If you have more than a couple of people...you'll need to ask for extra towels - which are delivered promptly by very friendly staff). The hotel is at a convenient exit with it's own McD's and Wendy's. They do serve coffee, but no breakfast...but then again, who REALLY enjoys the breakfasts that most hotels offer??? Stop by McD's and grab a sausage biscuit on the way out! Why add to the cost of your stay for a breakfast you might not enjoy? They also do not offer "free" wifi - so if you don't need it or use it...you're not having to pay for everyone else who does. You CAN purchase a 24-hr wifi pass for $2.99 at the front desk, which I did the first night, it was fast and easy to use. I have to admit, I've stayed at other Motel 6's around the country that weren't such a great experience, but THIS Motel 6 will now be my first choice when I'm in Springfield.
My thanks to Edna, Perry (night desk clerk) and all the house-keeping staff who made my stay a VERY pleasant experience!
