Rooms are moldy, and the elevator broke down. The price was the lowest in the area and I see why. If you are looking for a hot shower then this will do. If you are expecting a nice clean hotel keep looking. You get what you pay for.

Plus to this motel is that i could walk to the americas center through the Lumiere Link in the lumiere casino next door. In this sketchy neighborhood it was the safest route. Took 20 minutes bc of stop lights. Plus, parking lot is pretty secure and fenced in. The elevators broken, door would not shut. Bathroom door is in bad...

The rooms were far from nice but the price to stay is cheap so can't complain too much. No pressure when you flush the toilets and you could see outside with the doors closed. It's close to downtown, so if you want cheap and close to the night life it's not too bad.

As a solo traveller, I was a little nervous about staying here on my own but was safe for the entire trip. I asked for a quiet room on the 3rd floor that didn't overlook the highway after others on here had given tips for that for a quiet room. I got a room at the end of the 3rd...

Normally, when on vacation, I lean toward a high-rise hotel with a snazzy bar in the lobby, and room service, maybe a pool and hot tub. But, this was a 3-day volleyball tournament at the downtown convention center. My husband said the biggest stress would be to find a parking spot, pay for downtown parking, then have to walk 3-6...

Stayed here overnight while attending the AMA Supercross Race. It was a very short walk across the street to the Edward Jones Dome. Overall, it was a place to sleep. The staff was nice, but the rooms STUNK horribly. I think we must have gotten stuck in a room that people were chain smoking in. Outside of that, everything else...

Rooms was clean and wifi very good. Coffee and apple juice available all day and continental breakfast in the morning. Staff was excellent at giving directions and offering helpful suggestions. When internet went down, front desk was on it immediately and had it back up and running quickly. Rooms had small fridge and micro-wave.

My wife and I, and our Son just recently (2016) stayed at this location. Maybe the price that we were charged was because we had pets, but it was outrageous. The room was not very clean, didn't have a refrigerator or microwave, and of all things, the room didn't even offer a portable coffee pot. I'm retired military and our...

We had a family emergency and while helping a family member the staff went above and beyond to assist us. They didn't have to do what they did during this 6 day issue. I called the Manager each day to make sure our family member was okay until we could make other arrangements. He went out of his way to...
