The Best Western Route 66 Rail Haven Motel in Springfield, Missouri (also known as Rail Haven Motel or Rail Haven Motor Court) was built in 1938 and for many years was a true Route 66 institution that attracted Route 66 travelers and celebrities alike. Today the hotel is operated under the Best Western brand but maintains all of the nostalgic charm you’d hope for in a Route 66 hotel. In fact, in 2010, this hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

All of the 93 rooms at the Rail Haven evoke a sense of the past through artwork and memorabilia. But a couple of rooms go the extra mile. Stay in a western themed room, the Marilyn Monroe Suite, or the Elvis Suite.

The motel’s biggest claim to fame is that Elvis Presley, before he was even a star, once spent the night in room 409. On May 17, 1956, the young singer from Memphis performed at the Shrine Mosque in town. He was supposed to stay at the best hotel in town, the Kentwood Arms, but after an argument with his, he walked to the Rail Haven and got himself a room. Room 409. The Rail Haven Elvis Suite pays homage to the room the singer once slept in through decor, a giant mural, artwork, memorabilia and a Pink Cadillac shaped bed.

All guests, Elvis or not, can enjoy free high-speed internet, cable TV, free parking, coffee, and complimentary breakfast with their stay.

Be sure to take some time to admire the outside decor, complete with retired and recreated vintage signs, nostalgic cars, and retro gas pumps.
