As soon as we got there the front desk was super nice and helpful. The room was amazing. Extremely clean, which is the most important thing for me! The room had everything we needed and more. Just like an little apartment with lots of style and modern. Has a decent inside pool. Did not have any disturbances and no rude loud people. Breakfast had a lot of selection but I didn't get to try it :( And Smokey Bones restaurant was right down the road so we were in heaven. We will go back and stay :)

This is a quite new motel and embodies a nice layout, very friendly and helpful staff and a good-sized indoor pool. Typical of this type of property it features a full size refrigerator, microwave, stove, coffee maker and pots, pans, utensils, glassware and dishes. There are two large flat screen TV's, wi-fi and ample workspace and charging places for your electronics. Breakfast is complimentary. The breakfast has good variety and quality but the eggs and sausage could have been tastier. Every staff person I encountered spoke to me. When I needed directions to the Lincoln Museum they produced a pre-printed card with directions to and from and info on where to park and what it would cost. My rating of excellant is based on how it compares with other similar extended stay motels.

Room Tip: We had an end room, No. 202. There was no outside noise but we heard steps and a voice from above u...

We chose the Residence Inn because we saw the #1 TripAdvisor ranking in Springfield and we wanted the best room for our 2-day stay. It was Fabulous. Quietest room we have ever had anywhere. Great breakfast and friendly staff.

We stayed here two nights in January as our other regular hotel did not have vacancies. We were all very pleasantly surprised. None of us had ever stayed at a Residence Inn. Didn't quite know what to expect, but we all realized it is set up to be an extended stay type of place.
The staff were helpful and courteous. The outside of the Inn is a little vague as to where to check in - no canopy or signage. This is OK, just kind of irritating if you've never been there before. I guess it's meant to feel more like a townhouse or apartment.
Our room was spacious and clean. We loved the kitchen and made use of the full-size fridge. We loved all the outlets so we could plug in our devices. Our room was on the top (4th) floor, and all the way down 3 hallways to the end. Absolute quiet. Very nice.
Our daughter used the pool and I used the treadmill in the workout room. Very adequate. However, the hot tub / spa was being worked on the day we left, so we canceled our plans to take one more swim.
Bottom line, we will probably go back here next time we are in Springfield.

If you are headed to or through Springfield for any reason, make this your place to stay. Beautiful new, modern decor, very comfortable rooms and friendly helpful staff. The location is handy for sight seeing or business and to top it off, a great happy hour light meal (tues - thurs) and breakfast awaits you. The pool was a comfortable temp with the added bonus of saline treatment instead of chlorine or bromine. This is the place.

we arrived at the Residence Inn Springfield South after visiting and touring Lincoln's home. We had a two bedroom suite complete with a living area and kitchenette. Each bedroom had it's own complete bath. The rooms were all tastefully decorated and everything was very well thought out. the breakfast in the morning included our favorite, oatmeal, waffles, cantelope, muffins, and good coffee. All in all a very satisfying stay.
