I don't like hotels and I don't like cities, but camp sites are hard to come by in St. Louis. After agonizing over the many, many horrible reviews here, I decided to go for it and book it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. - The parking lot seemed about as secure as it could be in a city. We had... More

This place was a joke, we stayed for four nights and were overcharged for our stay. I could have booked for less that day than what I did booking in advance and management and corporate would not honor the price. We also had no hot water on final day, housekeeping came to our room only once, a/c did not work... More

I stayed in this hotel while I was driving from New York to Nevada. St. Louis itself was a midway point so we chose a hotel that was cheap enough but still close to the ballpark. We could have easily walked to the ballpark for the game. It was almost a straight shot from the hotel to Busch Stadium, but... More

We stayed here as part of our Rt66 road trip. We knew we not going to spend much time in the hotel so we didn't want to spend too much money on our rooms. We had a first floor room which had a view of a breeze block wall. The rooms were spacious and clean with a big TV. There... More

I have mixed emotions about this hotel. We arrived on dusk and while my partner was checking in I sat in the car. There was some sort of 'meeting' in the car park between two parties and an awful lot of rats running around. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the room, it was very nice but very...

I stay there a few days ago. The room was ok. The noisy level is extremely high due to the closeness of the hwy. There are no stores around the area. I would not recommended due to the lack of service

It's good for an overnight stay where all you're doing is sleeping. It's not THAT bad. Room was clean, employees were nice. I'd say it's on the edge of where you want to be...Go any further north and it might be a little unsafe, but the Four Seasons is right across the street, and the arch is pretty close. The... More

Stayed in this hotel and found a syringe under the bed. We notified the night clerk and he said there was nothing he could do. We spent $400 dollars to stay in another hotel that night. We tried to get a refund the next day and were told to call the owner that Wednesday. We called Wednesday and were told... More

I honestly cannot say enough how terrible this place is. We paid $75 for what should have been a ksuite with a king bed, sleeper couch, non smoking, with HBO and a hot breakfast. What we got was a room that not only smelled like smoke, but there was an ashtray inside. Only one Channel on the tv worked, which... More
