This motel is has a touch of nostalgia (vintage signage, gas pumps, car), while the buildings are updated, very clean, and the location is near the university, downtown, and other shopping. Convenient if you have pets. The breakfast provided is great with lots of options.

I was born and raised in Springfield so I'm quite familiar with this motel. I was excited when I found on TripAdvisor that they offer rooms with 1 double bed and a recliner; I have issues with my ears that are aggravated by sleeping flat on a bed. I booked one of those rooms through TripAdvisor and received a confirmation...

Very affordable with very friendly staff. Great hot breakfast included and close to MO State Campus. We normally stay at more "expensive" hotels but this was a great option that we would do again while visiting Springfield.

Whenever we are in the Springfield area we always stay at the Rail Haven 66. We were late arriving and they called to verify we would be arriving that night. I appreciate this gesture. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. I also like that I can park in front of my room.
