We had a great stay at this clean & cozy place. The staff was very friendly & went an extra mile to update us on the local attractions & restaurants. We even got a complementary upgrade to a King Suite:)
Will definitely stay again.

I really enjoyed this hotel, it was close to everything, the beds were a little hard but the room was clean and the hotel was easy to get too. I like the ample parking. The keys to the rooms are a bit different.

My husband and I really liked the Mansion View. It is very reasonably priced and within easy walking distance of all the downtown Springfield attractions. Parking is free and so is the Continental breakfast. Although the hotel is older and some of the furnishings show their age, the room was very clean and cozy. We will definitely book a room there again on our next trip to Springfield.

This was our 2nd time staying at this hotel. After our first experience I was really hesitant about staying again,but hotel's close to our destination were booked. This time when we stayed, the rooms had been updated. It was clean and plenty of towels. This no 4 or 5 star hotel by any means, but for the price and location it is a good choice. The am-trak is right behind this hotel, but I did not hear it after 9:30pm. To the person that stated " BTW, there is no view of a mansion" maybe you should learn more about the Illinois state Capitol? The Govern's Executive Mansion is right across the street.

For the past ten years we have passed through Springfield two to eight times a year. We have stayed in the Hilton, and the Lincoln which are fine, but The Mansion View has free parking right outside one's door, suites, some of which are quite large, they allow dogs, and the price is right.
For its diminutive size, Springfield has a great deal to offer, most of which are a short walk from the hotel. The current and original Capitols, The Pres. Lincoln neighborhood, F.L. Wright's Dana House, the Lincoln Museum and Library, at least three fine dining restaurants, a couple of good hotel restaurants, a few hippie restaurants, coffee shops, a really tasty, inexpensive Italian restaurant, an adequate number of bars, as well as other museums and tourist shops.
We continue to find this area fascinating. The Mansion View is a very convenient hotel from which to base one's history strolls, and to stumble back to after a night on the town.

Room Tip: If you like watching trains get a room by the tracks.

Very noisy train - very close - running all hours. Desk clerks friendly, polite and helpful. Maid service= never saw them, never got clean towels or anything/no one asked nor cared. Coffee in rm - had HORRIBLE taste and no cups. Jacuzzi was forest green in a different life - was heavily scratched - had whitish casts and a visible film over it, most fixtures and jetsof jacuzzi had heavy calcification and appeared dirty with yellowish/white thick goo all over jet valve and openings - *did work though - that is ** if you could get past sitting in a dirty looking tub. Toilet had black dirt stains in it-*pic available upon request. Bedroom drape was broken on one side - was afraid to touch so that the whole thing didn't fall. A/C worked but had a strange odor to it. Room carpeting had random stains throughout and visible tears in it. Ceiling over bed had stains - appeared to be a poorly repaired leak stain. Small refrigerator had so much ice over it everything froze that was put in it - had not been defrosted in a very long time. Microwave worked. Mattress was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Sheets were nice and thick/clean. Iron and hair dryer did not use. Room was very spacious - more then needed. Furniture especially in kitchen area was beat up. *Is very close to sites, room rate reasonable BUT would not stay again due to level of cleanliness. ** no info. in room about anything -never did find the pool,- according to website they had one?? And as for breakfast - never found that either. Never again. Thank you.

Room Tip: In my experience - bring cleaners and scrub brush - and some CLR wouldn't hurt.
