I spent two nights at this property in May, 2012, and I did not regret my decision.
The highlight of my stay was the friendliness of the staff - everyone seemed to genuinely want me to have a good stay. When I checked in, one of the front desk clerks asked about the purpose of my visit. When I said I was in town to see the Lincoln historic sites, he printed off a $2.00 discount coupon for the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum.
My room was spotless, and it was also very quiet. The hotel is just far enough from I-55 that I did not hear any freeway noise during my stay.
Others have commented about the hotel's distance from downtown Springfield, but Springfield is spread out enough that even if you stay downtown, you will probably need to use your car to get from one attraction to another.
There are several chain restaurants close to the hotel; I had dinner at the Outback Steakhouse, but there are other choices, too.
The only negative is that the entrance to the street the hotel is on (Dirksen Parkway) is poorly marked. I overshot Dirksen Parkway when I exited off southbound I-55, and had to do a u-turn to get back to the hotel.
If I'm ever back in Springfield, I will gladly stay here again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The area around our Hampton Inn® hotel in Springfield has a special kind of affable, good-natured charm. But you can also have a seriously good time here. For instance, many of the best-known spots on Route 66 are here in Springfield. Like the Cozy Dog Drive In. They're still serving the famous "hot dog on a stick" the same way they did back in 1949. For preservation aloft, the Air Combat Museum shows (and sometimes flies) a dozen military aircraft. And children love Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure-two parks at one location. It's just a mile from our hotel in Springfield.You absolutely can't leave our hotel in Springfield without visiting the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The museum offers a fascinating and high-tech glimpse into the life and hardships of our nation's 16th president. You'll find many other Lincoln sites in this, the town he called home. So come for a visit to the Hampton Inn hotel in Springfield, a place of fun, history and good times. ... more less
