There are other places in Springfield that I would rather stay. The sink did not drain, the bed had a hole where people sat and watched TV so I kept rolling into it. The shower had mold in it. The room was hot and never cooled down. We were on the 8th floor. The bedding was clean and the furnishings... More

Construction noise made it very difficult to get quality sleep and work done. Also, for the price of the room you would expect there to be a refrigerator. It should be standard in all of the rooms. I would lower the price of the room to $75 if you were not going to provide a refrigerator. Also, the hotel charges... More

Besides their own property, UP is within walking distance to the downtown area, where there is lots to do and plenty of places to eat. Also, Springfield Cardinals' Hammonds Field is just a block away. The hotel offers indoor and outdoor pools, as well as one of the best continental breakfasts you can hope for. Grove Spa will offer a... More

Friendly helpful staff, nice facility. Room is clean, quiet and comfortable. Too bad the complimentary breakfast is not longer part of the room rate. I think that is a mistake, and I'll think twice before booking here again.

We were in Springfield for a short overnight trip and chose to stay here. We chose to pay the $25 early check-in fee so we could get ready for the event we were attending. It was warm in the room when we first entered but that's typical and didn't think much of it. We turned the thermostat down to 68*... More

I brought my family and we bought two rooms. Hot, AC works poorly. There were 12k people at the concert and the hotel was packed. Concert ended around 11pm. The hotel just closed up the bar and food. Good business plan? Hotel is clean. Beds comfy, but if you're looking for good service don't stay here.

Chose this hotel because of proximity to campus visit. Hotel was clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor and indoor pool and spa were open until 11pm which was nice. Breakfast buffet was very good at $7 per adult. Hotel seemed a bit pricey for Springfield but it had all the amenities we wanted. Ate dinner downtown at Civil Kitchen -... More

Room was very clean and easy to get to all areas of the hotel. Great location to visit downtown or the ballpark. Staff was very kind and easy to work with. Has a lot to offer for people with families.
