Reviewed June 19, 2014

Location was great and the hotel seemed clean. Pool was closed for maintenance reasons. My main complaint was the rude lady who worked the front desk. She was never there. You always had to ring the bell to summon her. She never smiled. She huffed. Any question asked seemed like it was a burden to her. We will not stay here again.

Having read some previous reviews about cleanliness etc I was a bit worried about booking this place but due to being on a tight budget, decided to go ahead.
I was pleasantly surprised as the rooms were basic but pretty clean. This was perfect for a one night stopover. Breakfast was basic as expected.
The only thing was the staff were very rude and not very welcoming to customers but again fine for a one night stay.

Seriously, do not stay here. We stayed one night, first of all the sheets were dingy and wrinkled. Second I saw a roach crawl from u nder the tv. When I went to bathroom I flushed toliet and water started leaking everywhere. I looked up to the shower and there was three finger streakvof blood in the shower. They dont clean anything obviously. I asked for a manager and they said there was no one that could help me because the manager would be gone for a whole month. Cheap doesnt have to mean dirty. Worst experience ever. Its worth passing up. Find another hotel that's cheap...probably be better anywhere else.

When we first arrived we were hit by the scent of smelly feet. The room was a good size with all of the required amenities (although they were a touch dated). The hotel was in walking distance from downtown Springfield and many of the other local attractions.

If you are looking for a hotel that is reasonably priced in a central location then this is for you.

This is the WORST dive in the USA. I cannot believe anyone other than travelers like me who check in late in the evening would ever stay at Homestyle Inn in Springfield. Conditions ate filthy and border on unsafe as exposed electrical are found where the fire alarm used to be found in the the ceiling. The no smoking roon has ashtrays! The was a battle of the titans as 2 roaches and a cricket fought long into the night only to all be found dead in the morning. The smell of mold overwhelms you. I left at 4 am choosing the rental car over the putrid room.

Room Tip: There must be better places to stay in Springfield Illinois

You DON'T want to stay here. I don't care if its free. You will take critters home with you. Don't touch the walls and don't go barefoot. Crud falls off the ceiling while you are laying in bed. I am serious. They continuously banged on the door because a person in our party was 5 minutes late checking out even though we had the room reserved for another night. They threw him out, this was before we saw the bugs and other crud. Stay away.......far away!!

You get what you pay for.
My main thing -- and this is something all hotels should remember, not just this one -- hotel rooms MUST have accessible outlets by the bed. My husband uses a CPAP and needs to plug his unit in beside his bed. Also, many people use their smart phones as alarms, so outlets by the bed would be nice.

The staff was very helpful. They directed us to nice eateries within walking distance. There also is a supermarket right next-door in case you forget your toothbrush.
