I stayed at the Drury Inn & Suites for just one night. I liked it enough that I chose it to stay at for my next trip down to the Springfield area. First impression was not good though: the hotel has a rundown appearance when you first arrive. There is a huge hole in the carport roof, and the windows and outside of the building have a dirty appearance. However, upon entering the hotel you notice it is clean and well kept, even if it is a bit of an older property. The staff is wonderful. Very accommodating to our needs, and suggested a terrific seafood place in a "haunted" mansion just down the street that had the best salmon I have eaten in quite some time.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 5:30 happy hour drinks - the bartender was very cheerful and funny. Soda and popcorn were a welcome addition to my late night work schedule. They also have a freezer where you can purchase ice cream over by the front desk!
The free wireless internet worked flawlessly, and the mini office area was fine for printing out some papers I needed. Unfortunately the printer is only black & white.
The room was prefectly adequate. I thought the pillows were comfy, and it was very clean. Breakfast the next morning was okay, not delicious, but filling and free. They had biscuits & gravy which was unusual and nice to see. The coffee was really good.
As I said, I liked it well enough that I will stay there again this week.
