• Route 66 Hotel and Conference Centre, Springfield

    Listed under

    Upon arrival at the Route 66 Hotel the first thing that strikes you is the beautiful neon and wonderfully decorated lobby. There's no chance that you'll ever forget you're in a Route 66 motel as the walls are plastered with all manner of memorabilia and artwork! The hotel was actually the first Holiday Inn on Route 66 and opened in the 1950's.

    This completely remodelled facility features 106 guest rooms and 8 suites, plenty of parking, a Grand Ballroom, and a "mini museum" with an array of vehicles, signs and articles from the golden age of Route 66. The huge Route 66 sign on the floor of the swimming pool is a nice touch!

    You won't have to go far for dining as the hotel is also home to the Route 66 Mother Road Diner, complete with full bar, slot machines, dart boards,
    pool tables, arcade games, and numerous TV’s to watch your favorite sports games. The location of the Route 66 Hotel and Conference Centre is ideal if you plan on seeing the local attractions such as the IL State capitol, Old State Capitol, Abraham Lincoln Museum, Lincoln’s home, and Lincoln's tomb.

    “My family stayed there while driving the Illinois & Missouri portions of Route 66. It's located right on the Route just seconds away from the Cozy Dog Drive in!”

    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.
