Homestyle Inn & Suites, Springfield

Listed under

The Homestyle Inn & Suites is a reasonably priced motel situated just a few blocks from the State Capital building and Lincoln Library. The main draw to this hotel was the price and location; inexpensive and central to downtown. It's ideally located if you want to make an early start to check out Lincoln's home and tomb. While certainly not a traditional Route 66 motel the location is very convenient for sightseeing in Springfield.

The hotel has a swimming pool that's open during the summer months but I didn't get the chance to take a dip. I stayed here after a long day of driving (the first stop on my journey in fact) and was only looking for a comfortable place to rest my head. With that in mind it didn't disappoint - the room was very large and the bed was comfy. The decor is dated and could do with a makeover but I have no complaints regarding cleanliness. The breakfast was good and home to the largest apples I've ever seen!

The staff are very welcoming and more than happy to offer advice on local areas of interest. On our visit we found downtown to be very quiet but discovered a great place to eat/drink called Sammy's Sports Bar and Grill.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
