We were stuck in a long traffic jam coming west on I44 which was closed due to flooding. The detour was long, narrow, dark, full of trucks, and stressful. Our original plans fell through. The first hotel we saw, at 11:00 pm was Baymont. We had never stayed at a Baymont before and this property looked expensive. Our first pleasant surprise was the $77 total.
The rooms were better than average size, clean, well maintained, and comfortable. The location was just off the detour and afforded excellent access to the highway. Parking was not an issue, the lot was large and well lit. We were pulling a camper, so this was another peasant surprise.
The breakfast was deluxe carbohydrates, fresh pancakes from a mini factory, waffles, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, cereal, muffins, bagels, etc, plenty of room for the small crowd gathered at 7 am.
We will return to this property and give other Baymont Inns a try.

As an award winning Baymont for the last 20 years we have provided our guest with a high quality comfortable stay that they have come to expect from us while staying in Springfield.
