For those of you that frequent Marriott-brand hotels like I do for work, you will find this hotel meets or exceeds the standard Marriott has for Courtyard hotels.

...and yes, this place is functioning again after the tornado of March 2006. (I have been trying to stay here for a while, but could not util July.)

This review is based on a four-night stay in July 2006. This hotel features:
- pool, hot tub, and exercise room.
- breakfast area (eggs to order, sausages, hash browns, bacon, waffles, patrioes, cereals, juices, muffins, donuts, fruit, milks, etc.) ranging from $5.95 for continental buffet to $7.95 for full buffet.
- rooms with the upgraded Marriott linens.
- lots of TV channels (if that is what you are interested in).
- wireless hi-speed Internet access only (so if you don't have a wi-fi card, you will need one here).
- larger, bright bathrooms than most Courtyards, and it features a curved shower bar.
- and it is on the edge of all shopping and restaurants - good location. Also close to the freeway entrance to Decataur or Jacksonville.
- room rate was $129 USD per night.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel. The service was on par, the rooms and amenities were good, there was sufficient parking (despite sharing it with the Sleep Inn next door, and having sold out because of the National High School Rodeo Competition in-town), and it is close to everything one would want in Springfield.

Given the room rate though, I wonder if more value could be found by staying at the Springhill Suites (another Marriott-chain brand) next door, which is being renovated after tornado, and offers free breakfasts...

I have stayed at this hotel since 1996. The management and staff are very friendly and help make this hotel a home from home place to stay.
You get the sense that the management and staff really love their job.
There is no other place I would stay in Springfield.

My two daughters, ages 16 and 21, have stayed at the Courtyard Inn numerous times. It's warm, cozy and the rooms are large and comfortable. We've tried other places, but always go back there. Both Courtyard Inns in Springfield are near restaurants, but we prefer the one on Freedom Drive which is across from shopping malls. I especially like the closeness of my favorite place, Barnes & Noble. The staff is always pleasant and helpful and I like the availability of coffee and tea anytime in the lobby. The pool is very cozy and it's quiet in the CYI...you can always get a great night's sleep.
