Employees were extremely nice. Got upgraded to the Elvis room for our 25th wedding anniversary. Breakfast food was just okay nothing special. Everything else was really good.

Rail Haven is an iconic Route 66 motel that has been kept up and includes some modern amenities. Staff was excellent, grounds were well taken care of and we were thrilled to live in a little part of history.

As the name implies the Best Western Route 66 Motel is right on the Mother Road in Springfield, Missouri, birthplace of Route 66. The old motel style (but with clean up-to-date rooms), the old classic cars in front, and the period signage all make this motel a great place to "Get Your Kicks on Route 66". I did not get the Elvis Room, but it is pretty cool he stayed here!
