This is an older type motel on Route 66. It is very quaint on the outside. The rooms have been upgraded and look so nice. Very clean rooms. It is located on a main Street and is near a very good restaurant.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 March 2017

If you are looking for a very nice, very clean retro motel on Route 66, look no further than the Rail Haven Motel in Springfield MO. It will transport you back to a "kinder, gentler time" when things moved a good bit slower. This place has a lot of rooms and many of them are "themed" - there is an...

This motel is full of history and well worth the stay, especially for the price! The rooms are remodeled and very clean. The only issue we had was that the beds were small. But for the price and fun atmosphere, we would stay again!

Honestly, the best sleep at a hotel/motel I've ever experienced! The bed was comfortable, the room was spotless and the motel itself was so quaint! The room was small but had all that I would want with a small fridge, microwave and cable TV. The staff were welcoming and helpful. This is a sweet throwback to the 50's abs I...

Great location with newly remodeled rooms. Small but more affordable than other hotels in town. Good breakfast including eggs & sausage, yogurt, etc. not just a bunch of carbs! Helpful staff & neat cars out front for some cute picture opportunities.

The hotel staff, especially the afternoon/evening check in guy, are amazing. The rooms are always extremely clean & the breakfast is delicious. The price is great & at least 1 night in the Elvis suite is a must. This is the only hotel I'll stay in, in Springfield

We took our dog with us on a recent trip to Springfield, and stayed at this motel for what must be the fourth or fifth time. We asked for a pet-friendly room, and got a double (two double beds) with no carpet on the back side of the facility. Across from the rooms was a large grassy area that was...

This was a fun, friendly place to stay. Took a one night get away just to do something different and liked this retro Motor Court Motel that brought back memories of family road trips in the 50's and 60's. Vintage cars, old gas pumps, phone booth, and chrome/formica tables and chairs in the breakfast area gave it that retro feel,...
