We don't travel through Springfield often and first visited in 2007. We chose the Inn at 835 because of its generous parking area, as we had a few days old car returning from factory delivery and didn't want a tight risky place. However the Inn proved delightful in other ways.
For our recent visit we selected the Inn because of our prior experience and its very convenient location. I would say that we characterize it as a small "boutique" hotel, not a "B&B" so much. Perhaps a dozen rooms puts it in that category for us, along with the nice breakfast, but not the excessive gourmet style breakfasts some B&B's do. We usually have cereal and juice, but enjoyed the cooked breakfast, but would not have felt badly missing it, as the greatest portion of the value for price paid seems to be in other aspects of the stay. Don't misunderstand me, the breakfast was complete, delicious, and competently served. We just did not have to wonder what anything was! And it lured us into skipping our usual cereal!
The furnishing are beautiful and the facilities seem new and very high quality. Everything was "spotless" and well maintained.
The owners run a great brew restaurant walking distance away (if not pouring rain) where the food is very good, reasonably priced, and a nice selection of ales. The staff at the 835 mentioned it but did not mention that it was under common ownership, nor pushed it, so we felt no pressure to go there. However another place we had planned to go is now closed, and so the suggestion of "Obed & Isaacs" worked out nicely.
I hope we can return before another 6 years go by!
