Walnut Street Inn, voted best Inn in the Ozarks - four years in a row, is a lovely example of the warmth and charm of a Queen Ann Victorian home. We are an urban oasis for our guests. It is in a nationally registered historic district and within walking distance to shops, fine dining, theaters, symphony performances, Cardinals AA Baseball, and much more. While the guestrooms are decorated with the mellow warmth of antiques, every imaginable modern amenity is tucked away to create an elegant, but comfortable environment. Gary and the attentive staff invite you to sit a spell in the wicker porch swing or read a book by the fire...Have a lazy soak in an antique claw-foot or a two-person jacuzzi tub...Greet the morning with breakfast on your private balcony...Or spend the day meandering through the hills and lakes of the Ozarks before snuggling into a cozy down comforter for a night of sweet dreams.

We stayed in the Benton room, it was just amazing and big enough for our large family with space to "get away" from everyone else. The staff was friendly, helpful, and kind, they made us feel welcome and at home. I can not say enough about the hospitality, just way above all the rest. With our large family we would have had to have 2 hotel rooms, so we saved money and had a great experience while putting into the local economy instead of a big chain hotel, so great value. Everything was spotless and maintained. The one and only thing we could see that could be improved was the dining experience. I expected a family style meal but it was restaurant style, without the choice of a menu. In my opinion, if you are going to offer proportioned plates then you should offer 2-3 choices. Otherwise offer family style where you set a bowl of eggs, plate of sausage, plate of toast, etc on the table for guests to take what they want (I couldn't avoid the scrambled eggs in the sausage and egg crepe). Other than that the food was delicious, healthy, and well thought out. We will be back for another stay.

My daughter & I stayed in the Rosen Room at Walnut Street Inn and loved it. The room was large and clean, all amenities were available, and Gary was a great host. The neighborhood is charming with many beautiful homes and great restaurants. I give it 5 stars.

I've stayed here three times thus far, with a fourth visit booked for next month. I've stayed in a different room each time, and each has had its charms: Rosie O'Neill Room: the hot tub, fireplace and balcony were wonderful. But honestly my favorite part of this room was picking up the biography of Rosie O'Neill and learning about an amazing women who I'd never heard about. Couldn't put the book down. The Benton Room: large enough to accommodate my husband, myself, son and daughter for one of the most wonderful reunion weekends ever (Family weekend for Drury University). The Rosen Room: perfect space for settling in and listening to the rain beat against the windows while we read books and internet reading (free wi-fi). Great breakfasts, every time. Wonderful hosts and service team. I highly recommend Walnut Street Inn. It's my favorite place to be in Springfield.

Walking distance to many restaurants and shops, a very pleasant atmosphere to be in. I will be staying there again when we are out that way.
