Howard Johnson Inn and Suites Springfield

Reviewed September 23, 2012

Room was clean but could use some updating, wouldn't hurt to replaced the carpet. Neither the WiFi or the TV worked very well. Light from the parking lot was shining into the room all night, curtain could not be pulled far enough to keep the light out. We had a suite and the light was a problem in both rooms.
Breakfast was basic continental breakfast, it was fresh and kept well stocked. Staff was helpful and friendly.
OK for a one night place to sleep but I would not recommend for a longer stay.

Motel is okey. Could use some updates carpeting in room. Possibly matterss could
be updated. For the price the stay was very good. You might separate the construction
workers as they rise and leave very early with their trucks.

We picked the hotel based on price for a stopping spot on way through Illinois. Hotel is off the beaten path with really no eating places nearby. The main attraction is an extensive and historic cemetery across the road that includes Lincoln's tomb. Definitely worth a long walk through the cemetery grounds to experience this history. The hotel is worn and while we were there, practically empty. The rooms are basic but are better than the abandoned look of the hotel and ground would communicate.. Wifi did not work in our room. Drain did not hold in the tub. Outdated tv. The lobby/breakfast area is better. If you stay here and want a place where Wifi works and is pleasant to sit, the central area is far better than the rooms.

Plenty of fast food places a few miles away. Also a very good steak place called Alexanders not too far away. Take the money you save by staying at this place and have a nice dinner.

Hotel is older, no frills, lots of bikers, a few roudy guys were loud late in the evening, but it didn't last long. Decent value and a good location for where I needed to be.

Overall the hotel was ok. The rooms were old and worn out... the bathroom looked old and somewhat gross. This could be updated. There was no sound barrier to the walkway outside and as people were coming and going at all hours it was noisy and very irritating.
