To start with if you are a smoker stay away from this place. The owner and manager of this property relegate smokers as 3rd class people and put them in the last building with the small crowded rooms that they put the homeless people in in the winter and the truck drivers and the dopers in. I guess they don't think a smoker deserves a nice clean room. Also there is no security at this building and they can not see it from the desk. The police are called there pretty often so if you have kids you can let them out when they are there. I have talked to the owner and was told he would nmake more smoking rooms but that was about 1 1/2 or 2 years ago and nothing has happened yet. Any time we used to go to Springfield we would stay there because it was always very clean and the people were nice. That has all changed. There are only 2 of the old people there and the new people could care less. We have just about quit going to Springfield because of this. The owner tries to tell everyone that the smoking ordinance in Sprinefield will not let him do anything about the problem but that is not entirely ture. As far as non smokers take you'r chances. The rooms are not as clean as they used to be because the new maids don't care like the old staff did. This manager has the same problem as the staff. She doesn't care. To sum it all up this used to be a great place to stay and could be again if the owner wanted it to be, but he thinks a little paint can cover up all the problems. A very sad end to what used to be great.
