Reviewed June 27, 2007

We stayed one night last week, passing through on a road trip with a small dog. We were pleasantly surprised by how nicely furnished the room was -- It looked newly updated with a beautiful bathroom, furniture, etc.

We did call ahead to make sure the dog was okay, though they did inform us that their hotel would be phasing out the pet policy soon. Nonetheless, we were quite happy with our room -- highest floor and farthest from the main desk. Ha ha!

Our room faced the ballpark, and we could see the scoreboard/outfield from the window. However, we could not only hear the ballpark, but everyone down at the pool just below us. Thankfully (or not) the air conditioning unit was loud, so we only noticed traffic/truck brakes/pool folks when it kicked off.

While there are a Walgreen's and a Steak and Shake across the street, it was difficult to find other restaurants nearby. I'd have researched this ahead of time, otherwise. The next morning, there was a limited (but free) breakfast, which was nice.

All in all, this was a fine hotel that we would consider staying at again. At $139 + tax, though, I might consider a cheaper hotel elsewhere.

We can not say enough good things about this hotel. From the moment we came through the front doors the staff did everything to make us feel welcome. The hotel is fairly new, with 7' wide corridors, large rooms and a very appealing decor. The breakfast bar was complete with hot food in addition to the cereal, yogurt, fruit, and buns. It is close to downtown Springfield, right next to the baseball stadium and a few minutes from the famous Lambert's Cafe (home of the tossed the bun).

Stayed here for one night when we drove down to see a college basketball game. The hotel is very convenient to the Missouri State campus and if you ever plan on taking in a Springfield Cardinals baseball game this would be the hotel to stay at since it sits right in front of Hammons Field. The decor of the hotel is very nice and the king size bed in our room was great. The only thing that I was disappointed in was their breakfast. It was mainly cinnamon rolls, bagels, and cereal. I've had better at other hotels but I didn't choose this hotel because of what they offered me for breakfast. The quality of the hotel definitely outweighs their breakfast bar!

We arrived at this hotel in the middle of the night en route to visit family farther north. I had heard about Hammons-owned hotels and shouldn't have been surprised by how nice this property is, but it is really quite nice. That's putting it mildly. It was really upscale. The decor was not consistent with what I had come to associate with a Holiday Inn. Whoever is responsible for the styling of this hotel deserves a serious pat on the back. Very nice. We stayed here for only a few hours as we woke up early to continue on our way. However, I had previously spent a considerable amount of time in Springfield for business related training and think this Holiday Inn Select would be perfect for an extended stay. Not the type requiring kitchenette facilities, but definitely perfect for a few days stay.

We stayed here on a trip from Nebraska to Louisiana. The hotel is relatively new but the surrounding area looks a little rough. When we arrived early in the evening after a whole day on the road the hotel couldn't honour our request for a smoking room but upgraded us to a mini-suite after I questioned whether it was worth the effort of being a Priority Club member. The room was OK but had the smallest double beds I've ever seen in a hotel in the USA - just as well there were two of them. We woke in the morning to find ants streaming out of a nest under the bath tub, which housekeeping dealt with promptly. If everything went according to plan I'm sure this would be a reasonable place to stay but problems with our visit meant we didn't really enjoy it.

After reading reviews on this site, I booked 5 days at this hotel. The staff was very friendly in the dining area, front desk and even the maintenance man who offered us a fresh cup of coffee for the road on Saturday morning very early. The suite was clean and well-appointed. It was money well spent and I will certainly stay there again.

Hotel is very new so that was pleasant. Staff was fine, check-in and out were pretty quick. The room was comfortable but the cleaning was not quite what I would hope for: there were hairs in the bathtub, crumbs on the desk, the floor was not well vacuumed, the coffee mugs weren't cleaned very well. The room was so new those little cleaning gaffes weren't a huge deal (if the room was older it would have just added to a general feeling of shabbiness). Breakfast was well laid out in a big room, food was fine. Cleaning staff sometimes have an off day, it wouldn't keep me from coming back here. There's a Korean restaurant across the street that seems popular with lots of locals, I had adequate takeout from there. In all, I would highly recommend this hotel!
