Being away from home is stressful when traveling on business. The University Plaza Hotel is welcoming, comfortable and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Definitely look forward to staying the next time we are visiting Missouri State University.

Bathroom was small and had a shower tub combo. The ad said there were Jacuzzi tubs which was one of the reasons I booked here. Front desk was not very helpful when it came to reporting what I thought was a broken coffee maker. I had to call twice to have it attended to. Turns out it was okay, BUT... More

Didn't care for the staff at this hotel. The front desk person who checked us in was not polite and seemed to be very upset at something going on that day. Her name started with a T. The other person was fine. Also, I sat in the bar area for 20 minutes, it wasn't busy, but no one ever came... More

This hotel is centrally located near restaurants, bars, and speciality shops. There is a nice coffee bar in the lobby as well as a regular bar. The water feature in the lobby is nice and helps drown out noise.

My husband and I were attending another event at the Springfield Expo Center, so we booked a stay here again. We had planned to stay at least two nights, but weren't able to book the nights we wanted and stay within our budget! So we stayed one night. This visit was pleasant, but it didn't compare to our first stay... More

Always clean, friendly. It's close to the university which makes it nice when visiting my granddaughter. I like that it has a Starbucks inside. Rates are good and they offer free breakfast daily. I'm finishing this review but I'm being ask to say more. I have nothing more to have.

Everything worked at the hotel including suggestions of where I could walk to for dinner. The buffet breakfast was fine and reasonably priced. I am happy to stay here on my next visit. This time I would bring my workout clothes.
