I must qualify "good value" by saying I was in Springfield for a convention, and could have gotten a convention rate of $124 at the Hilton. I made my reservation on the BW website for a $90 dollar senior rate, but when checking in, was told my rate would be $124. Imagine my surprise! However, the nice young fellow on the desk changed it to $90 and I got what I wanted: a quiet, clean, comfortable room. This is an older property originally built as a Days Inn, but was a much nicer building than usual: brick exterior, restaurant (now used just for breakfast), nice sized rooms, etc.) Also has a very nice outdoor pool.
What lends itself to good management, in addition to the front desk experience, are what I observed; a courtesy shuttle, clean rooms and grounds, nice landscaping and an interesting thing: lots of construction skilled tradesmen stay there, which is a real plus: they are quiet, go to bed early and are generally pretty pleasant. (The also rent rooms in blocks!) And smart management has provided a picnic table and grill behind the hotel and under a part of the "Springfield Mixing Bowl" - a gargantian interchange). Tradesmen working out of town can't afford to eat out. Neither do they want to "dress for dinner." Rather, they enjoy a place to cook some dinner, visit and drink a few beers. Really smart hotel owners who can build up this kind of clientele would do well to provide a nice picnic area. (And by the way, construction guests don't steal or tear up rooms, either.)
I found this hotel's staff to be consistently friendly and helpful, the property well maintained and in every respect, what I wanted. I will continue to stay there as long as my needs arise.
