“Lovely Inn-A must in Springfield, MO”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

My daughter recently stayed in the Rosen Room at Walnut Inn and we loved it. The room was large and everything was clean. Gary was a great host. We had cookies in our room and breakfast was plentiful & yummy. The neighborhood is charming as well. There were lots of places in walking distance. I highly recommend staying here.

I'll return next month for my fourth stay at Walnut Street Inn. Our son is a student at nearby Drury University. Our first night at this inn was the day we dropped him off for his Freshman year of college. The Rosie O'Neill room's hot tub and fireplace helped warm our spirits on an unseasonably cold and rainy August afternoon. Wine on our private balcony helped ease our separation anxiety and remember what it was like once upon a time before kids. Two months later, we reserved the Benton room upstairs, which easily accommodated myself, husband and teenage daughter when we visited for a weekend. I loved the interesting angles and hide-aways created by the roof line. It was a great space to relish our family time. This past weekend my daughter and I returned, and stayed in the Rosen room, a cozy small room with a comfortable bed and seating, great lights for reading and lounging. The rooms and bath amenities have without exception been clean and inviting. Each visit, our breakfast was splendid, and the service and roomkeeping personnel were kind and helpful. One visit, in an effort to save about $20, we stayed at a hotel recommended to us by another parent. Never again. The charm of the Walnut Street Inn and the hospitality of its innkeepers are just too compelling. My kudos to Gary and Paula for investing their time and treasure into maintaining this beautiful old home so the rest of us can enjoy it. By the way, each of the rooms has information about the familes who'd lived there in the past, and/or the historicial figures that the rooms are named after. Make sure to allow time during your visit to look at those books, it makes you appreciate the house and the setting even more.

My first impression when we pulled up was simply beautiful . Things got better from there. We were greeted by two amazing people Gary and Star who welcomed us like long lost friends . They offered to do anything to make checking in and settling in more comfortable . We came there for our honeymoon and were taking photos and Gary offered up his time to take photos for us on our special day . The many things they did that followed made our stay wonderful . The food was great and room was beautiful as was the yard and garden . It was a great piece of history and we look forward to coming back for years to come .

This BB is comprised of 3-4 historic buildings on a nice street, just across from the convention center in downtown Sprngfield. It is an easy walk to the beautiful new baseball park and not far from the college. My room was up a narrow inside staircase from a side entrance of one of the less grand houses. The stair led to two separate rooms, so it was very private and quiet. The room was thoughtfully decorated with interesting antiques and had a totally new large bathroom. It had a mini-fridge generously stocked with water and soda. As a previous reviewer indicated, the carpet is probably getting close to retirement, but mine was freshly shampooed. The staff was great in recommending a restaurant. The linens and towels were good quality and the cleaner was professional. They allowed me to save $ and skip breakfast so I can't comment on that. The dining room in the mail house is very pretty. This is a great concept, with thoughtful staff. It could use some refreshing, but is really a good place. I'd return.

Room Tip: question the staff carefully on room selection. They vary significantly.

First, I must thank Gary for his willingness to work with us as we arrived a full four hours later than we had hoped. Flooding along the highway created a LONG detour. Still when we arrived, our key was waiting for us with a note of welcome. Our suite was beautifully lit and welcoming. We had the O'Neill suite with a hot tub, king bed, desk and full amenities. It was an old, lovely home and quite enchanting. I loved the front porch with the swing. We were tired but not too tired to enjoy the hot tub and slept beautifully. We had breakfast at nine, and Gary worked with our wheat free diets, serving a lovely omelet. We stayed til the last minute and it was hard to leave!

We were fortunate to find Walnut Street Inn as we were passing through Springfield. We had a very lovely room. We appreciated the recommendation of Gilardi's Italian Restaurant which was a short walk from the inn. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. We would stay here again.
