Drury Inn & Suites, Springfield
The Drury Inn & Suites in Springfield, Illinois, is not your traditional Route 66 accommodation by any means, but this hotel comes highly rated and provides weary travelers with many creature comforts. Although slightly further outside the downtown area than other hotels, this hotel offers a pool and hot-tub, free internet access, free breakfast, and free hot and cold snacks! It may not be historical or independent, but if you fancied treating yourself for the night, you could do far worse...
“I really can't say enough about this hotel. We live only an hour away but took my 5yr old daughter to stay all night and swim for her birthday. A friend of mine met me at the hotel with her 2 daughters. This was a Friday afternoon. We had the pool to ourselves for 3 hours! It was great!"
"Then there were the free drinks, free hot dogs, chili, baked potatoes and salad. The room and the carpet were very clean. Free wi-fi in the room. The breakfast the next day was great. French toast, eggs, cereal, sausage. Not just your muffins and cereal laid out. We will definitely be coming back. Oh yeah, wanted to point out it was very quiet too. We never heard a thing from outside our room.”
