4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

very good hotel but one thing when we left for a day and came back the room is not completely cleaned. Maybe there was a reason that the cleaner was sick or something emergency happen that day. Though over all the Best Western Route 66 Rail Haven is one of the top hotels. They have great service and nice people.

This hotel feels like stepping back in time! Conveniently located to the college campus if you are visiting a student, great value, excellent free breakfast! Loved the vintage cars and phone booth located on the property. As in the "old days", when you have a room with drive up to your door parking you have excellent convenience. The small drawback...

Very friendly people from check in to check out. This is a historic hotel with pictures of the past in the rooms so cool. Freshly painted & updated, very clean & maintained; comfortable beds. The worst I could say is the water pressure wasn't the best but not bad at all. breakfast was good with good variety to choose from

We loved this hotel. Nice, clean, cozy and very friendly people. A lot of history here. Parking was a little problem since we had large Expedition and the spaces were a little small. Breakfast was good with coffee.

This place was a great stop on our way from Ohio to Texas. It has so much character. The room was great and the staff was super friendly.

As a mom traveling with a teenage daughter, I feel uncomfortable staying in a strange city at a hotel. I always look on Trip Advisor and read the reviews before I pick a hotel. We decided to stay at the Route 66 Rail Haven because of the reviews and the history. The staff is super friendly. The room was updated... More

The staff went out of their way to make sure that I was pleased with my room. The first room I was given had a slight problem and they wasted no time changing rooms for me and making sure I received the expected accomodations. The second room was spotless, comfortable in every way, and much larger than I expected a... More

Stayed there in July. Very friendly staff. Accommodations were real good. Nice room. Beds were great. Breakfast was real nice and very adequate. Motel setting was real neat and location was good. Good location to tour around the area. Short ride down to Branson. About 25-30 miles. Spectacular scenery down to Branson.

Accomodation was clean, comfortable and more than adequate and felt safe but motel not hotel quality! Breakfast described as continental was a selection of both hot and cold with scrambled eggs, waffles, toasts etc and yogurt fruits and cereal. Plenty of coffee and juices. Staff excellent helpful and friendly. Great photo opportunities as well
