This was the first time my wife and I stayed at a Drury Hotel but i can assure you it won't be our last. Why, because they not only have a great hotel with all the usual amenities and more but they serve a great breakfast AND SUPPER...FREE! A couple can deduct $40 to $50 a day from your room cost if you use both of these meals. And they are VERY GOOD. You just can't go wrong at a Drury Hotel!
It was easy to make and confirm my reservation. All the staff that I encountered were welcoming, hospitable, and professional. The cost of my stay was reasonable given all the amenities that this hotel offers: heated indoor pool, hot tub, full dinner, and full breakfast. There is no other hotel in the area that is as good a value as this one - I know because I compared with five other hotels and none of them offered what Drury Hotels offered. I've lodged here before and would definitely lodge here again whenever I visit Springfield.
