I went to college in Springfield, so returning is always a game of "which hotel is the cheapest?" Perhaps it's middle age settling in, but last weekend, my wife and I chose the Walnut Street Inn for our overnight stay. We found Gary, the Innkeeper, very hospitable and accommodating. As a celiac patient, I carry great concern into every travel experience that my dietary needs can be met. Not only were those needs met, but Gary contacted me a week before our arrival to ask if I required anything special from the grocery store.
Our room was perfect for our needs - decorated as one would expect in an historic house, and appointed nicely with iron, toiletries and a comfortable bed. The room was clean, private and (I believe) all rooms have a private bath. The weather did not allow us to enjoy the outdoor spaces, but there are a number of places to enjoy coffee/tea, a snack or a book in the backyard.
Charming and comfortable, this will be our new new go-to when visiting Springfield. Take note: while Springfield is not a huge town, the inn is in an urban setting. Those having little or no experience with B&Bs should be prepared for the occasional loud car/truck or emergency vehicle to chance by (we only heard one ambulance during our stay). The bonus to the urban setting is that the inn is literally in the center of town - close and convenient to everything. Thanks, Gary! We'll see you again soon!
