We got stuck in the freezing rain on highway 70 between Kansas City and St.Louis on Friday12/16/16. Got off the highway, actually slid off the highway and into this Holiday Inn. Highway was at a complete standstill. The front desk staff was amazing! Gave us a room, actually a suite, with no reservation and two small dogs! (They don't take...

Rooms as expected, nice & clean. The place is very well kept, looks like new ! Again, very nice staff. Breakfast is on the good side of Holiday Inn for sure. Simple food for dinner but good quality. My room was super clean. I would come back when in the area.

After being on the road for 12 hours I pulled into this Holiday Inn that had been reserved by my company. The company card had not been charged and due to credit card charging policies of the hotel, the night clerk, Marissa, was unable to bill the room to them. I was upset and frustrated with the circumstance. Marissa explained...

Once again, I was very pleased with the service the hotel gave and I would recommend this hotel to just about everyone.

Left a personalized message wishing me luck for an interview. Was incredibly thoughtful. Very cheap on Hotwire with great value. Also appreciated the Keurig in each room. Hotel was clean and easy to access and was away from majority of traffic.

While passing through we stopped here and found the hotel to be very nice, we'll appointed, and comfortable. The on-site restaurant was also enjoyable for both our dinner and breakfast with good cheerful service. WiFi was troublesome but they should have that worked out. We won't hesitate to stop here again on our way through.

Unlike most desk clerks we have encountered, we found the one at this property to be very impersonal. She seemed more concerned about being "professional" than friendly. Our room was clean, quiet, and well lit. The property has its own restaurant. There are not many other dinning choices without driving back to Columbia. We have stayed at many Holiday Inn...
