Best Western Route 66 Rail Haven

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a nicer hotel on the inside than I expected! Rooms were clean, and staff were very friendly and even called after we got settled in to make sure the room was up to our expectations. The only drawback was the room we stayed in had an air conditioner that didn't cool very well and never turned off. We turned it all the way down to 66 because we thought maybe we had the temperature too high, but the room never cooled. It wasn't terribly hot, but it was a slight annoyance. All in all though, I would recommend this hotel!

Great continental breakfast and beautiful outside pool area. Traffic is a little loud at times as it sits right on main roadway. Clean and friendly.

Very nice motel. The staff was wonderful. Breakfast was good.

Clean rooms, friendly staff. Great value for the money.

I had a pleasant experience. Staff was friendly and willing to help out at anytime.

Came to vite family, the hotel was great and so was the staff

very nice place to stay. staff was exceptional. enjoyed this trip into the past. will stay here again.

I got to the Hotel earlier than I expected. And the hotel staff was very nice. They ended up checking me in anyway. A room was ready in15 minutes. The location is great. There is a chili's restaurant about 10 minutes away. Which delivers. I would highly recommend this place.

I was in town for an interview and looking for an inexpensive but comfortable place to stay. The upkeep of the property is great, the grounds look really nice and inviting. One thing I was not aware of was that there are several disconnected buildings with guest rooms in them. The lobby is not actually connected to any of the buildings so if you want to get breakfast, you could have a little walk. Typically I would enjoy that but I was there in December and it was quite chilly out. I was also placed in the furthest rooms from the lobby, and as a woman traveling alone, that made me a little uncomfortable. Parking was also pretty tight back there. My room was small, a perfect size for one person, but would be a little cramped with two. The breakfast was nice, lots of options.

This is the second time I have stayed here, The location is great, the Staff are friendly, the breakfast is good, & the room is comfy!

It is a very nicely managed place! Rooms are well organized. For staying here, you get a 10%off with eating at next door George's place. I would definitely recommend this place if you are also driving on Route 66.

Our main reason for booking was that we had a 5:25 AM flight and we wanted to be close to airport. It worked out for us very well and the staff was very informative. The rooms were comfortable but a bit on the older side. They were clean and did not feel uncomfortable staying there. Good place for a short stay.

What should I gonna say except good? Just the little bit wet quilt make me not that happy.

Good I just stayed for one night the staff was very friendly and the room was nice

A very good value, a popular motel, comfortable room. We had stayed there a week prior and decided on a return visit. I felt the breakfast was not as good, the biscuits were not fresh and there was no gravy. Also, the internet seemed pretty slow. It is a nice place, and I would stay again.

Front desk very helpful. Room was nice. Breakfast was very, very good.

Friendly staff, very good breakfast, quaint, historical situation--and good value.

I've stayed here twice, once coming back from Texas, and once staying in Springfiled. It's right on route 66, has the history, the look and feel of a hotel for route 66 travelers, but has been wonderfully updated to stay competitive with the times. I wish there were more hotels that were like this one - check in, drive up to your room good to go. And a fantastic breakfast to top off a great nights stay!!! Stay here, it's worth it!

This motel is perfect if you are visiting a MSU student.

The best western is located close to town in Springfield Mo. It is close to the attractions in springfield. The rooms are a little smaller than I am use to, but considering the age of the hotel they are very nice. I would stay there again if I every go back to springfield.
