“One Night Stay”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Hotel was clean and Staff was friendly. Enjoyed the Coffee that's available all the time. Breakfast was ready early had a good selection. Close to restaurants, (We ate at Cracker Barrel), close to the highway for easy access. Also close to gas stations. Overall a nice and convenient place to stay.

The rooms are clean and fairly up to date, however, not all rooms have a refrigerator and a microwave. This room didn't have these amenities. The front desk and breakfast room staff are great. The food selection for the breakfast is good, well prepared and hot.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms are on the quiet side of the hotel.

Stopped here for one night on our trip from St. Louis to Chicago. Requested a non smoking double room but all they had available was a king suite. We took it. I think this room used to be a smoking room or someone had smoked in here before our stay. Other than that issue, this was our only complaint. Decent room, clean and the lady at the front desk was fantastic. They had warm cookies in the evening at the front desk

This is a very nice Holiday Inn Express. It is clean and well furnished.

But, what makes this property outstanding is the customer service you receive. Especially Missy at the front desk. She went above and beyond the call of duty for several guests!

We were traveling to Missouri from Indiana and knew we were getting off to a late start so we figured we could get to Springfield and stop for the night. Checked Springfield and prices were crazy (250!) so we broadened our search. We arrived at midnight. My son was asleep in my wife's arms and I had our luggage. The night receptionist asked my name, whether I wanted to keep my room on my reservation call and handed me the keys, told me the wifi key was next to the room key and bid us goodnight. The room was cool, clean and comfortable. We settled in and were fast asleep in no time. There's nothing like efficiency as customer service when you're tired and cranky. And nothing to complain about is worth something. Definitely a great overnight value

Hotel is very clean, reasonably priced, and has an above average breakfast. We stayed there for a wedding we were attending over the weekend and felt it was a very good value. It seemed much nicer than the other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: We booked the single king room. Very nice and comfy room.
