“Good Value and Comfort!!”
Reviewed February 14, 2011

Finally, success!! This was my 5th try at finding a hotel in Springfield that had an indoor pool, tasty and hot breakfast, clean room, and comfortable beds without wrecking my wallet. My daughter is a student at MSU and so frequent trips are on the agenda for the next few years. Other hotels in the area are either too expensive for us or were sorely lacking in one of my desired amenities (above). This LaQuinta was very good in all of them. The front desk person, Brennan, was welcoming and friendly, which was a bonus after a long day in the car. The room was quite spacious, clean and comfy. The breakfast was hot and very adequate - eggs, biscuits, sausage, cereals, waffles, pastries, drinks - and well-stocked. The pool was clean and big enough to swim laps or play in with children and the whirlpool was hot and relaxing. I am so glad to have found a place to come each trip and not worry about what will go wrong or be lacking. I would say that a fridge and microwave would be nice, but am willing to do without for the sake of an affordable room. Thanks!!

Rented five rooms for one night (January 14, 2011) as I am the coach of a wrestling team. The hotel let us check in early. All the rooms were nicely renovated. Staff were courteous. The breakfast area was good as well.

I stayed at the La Quinta Inn Springfield East for three nights from 12/26-12/29. I was in town to visit with friends. The hotel was close to their home, and was less expensive than other options close by. I was pleased to find out that less expensive did not mean sacrificing of quality. I was greeted warmly upon check in, and on my last night, after I had said goodbye to my friends (a sad experience) I was greeted warmly by the front desk clerk. I was able to get coffee, and the clerk offered me a cookie. It was comforting and helped to make the evening a bit more pleasant.

I enjoyed the room, and found the amenities provided all that I needed. The bed was comfortable, as was the lounging chair in the room. I was not bothered by noise from the rooms next to mine.

I did not have the opportunity to have breakfast at the hotel, but my experience with other La Quinta hotels is that the breakfast is better than most other hotels. As I mentioned, I did have coffee that last night, from the breakfast area and that was a plus.

i also did not have the opportunity to use the pool/spa, but it looked inviting and, in the middle of winter, with such chilly temperatures, having inside facilities is a definite plus!

I will definitely not hesitate to book a room at this hotel on my next visit to Springfield!

For the price (we paid about $65) this hotel is a good value. The room was clean, amenities decent, wi-fi worked, bed good. However, the walls are thin and we could hear normal conversation from next door. When they got to singing...we called the desk. The young man on duty was extremely helpful and moved us to another room which he assured us would be quiet for the night since it was next to a stairwell and the room next door was not going to be booked. It was totally quiet and we were very satisfied. I'd stay here again, but not if it were fully booked and we didn't have an option of moving away from noise. I'm surprised that a national chain like LaQuinta has such minimal construction standards.

I live several hours from my Grand kids (ages 6 and 3). We spend one weekend almost every month at La Quinta East. It's their favorite...and mine, too. Close to the zoo, Bass Pro Shops and all the restaurants, my driving time is limited and my grand kid time is increased. Their indoor swimming pool is a big hit, too...newly renovated pool area and jacuzzi are lovely. The kids also enjoy La Quinta's lots-of-choice-breakfast and the front desk clerks are always friendly and helpful. This hotel has it all, as far as we are concerned.

Even though the hotel was totally full with tournament teams, it was very quite. The beds and pillows were super comfortable...maybe better than home! And that is saying a lot. I had booked rooms at a different hotel but when we got into town, it was 30 minutes from our gym...called to see if they would work with me on prices since I needed at least 5 rooms. They didn't have enough double rooms but lowered the price of the rooms.I was able to get 7 rooms still in budget. And the kids love having king beds.The breakfast was the usual free breakfast but what was so nice is that they keep it stocked the whole time and with several teenagers sport teams there....they really did a great job.They even let us keep 3 of your rooms for a late check out. Only problem smoke detector battery died at 3am. they took care of it but still. It would be nice if there was a laundry room on each floor instead of just one washer and dyer for the whole hotel...but the staff can't be held responsible for bad designing. Totally loved the way they help and were very kind.

Hi Folks!

We are very glad that you and your group enjoyed your stay. We understand that that particular weekend was busy for everyone, but we were happy to accommodate in any way possible. I hear your message about the Laundry machines and will make this recommendation to our owner. I apologize about the early morning smoke alarm in your room and am happy that our Front Desk Representative was able to handle that situation for you!

Thanks for your review and we look forward to seeing you in the future!
