The location is great! Nice area with lots to do. The outside of the building is nice with brick and cobble stone street. The lobby was also quaint with wood stairs and a fire place. In the room ( we had a 1 bedroom double queen suite) the ceilings were high the desk and two desk chairs were nice. The table set up with coffee and cups looked good and as did the bathroom, it was clean. The beds were comfortable nice blankets. But the sofa sleeper and chair had stains and looked like they got it off of craigs list! Not joking! There was a high pitch ringing that was also annoying. Front desk people were very kind and they had the complimentry cookies. They also have smoking rooms which is nice for the persecuted smoker.

Beautiful hotel and comfortable. Staff was very pleasant and hot/cold breakfast was good. Close to casino and St. Charles' wonderful historic downtown area. Parking garage could be a little bigger. Right on the river and very senic.

We stayed at this location as opposed to the St. Peters, Missouri Country Inn which is just a few miles West on Hwy 70. Mainly because the location is in a historic district with cute shops all around. However, there was a sewer stench outside during our 5 day stay, likely caused by the Missouri River which is within walking distance.

The breakfast had good variety as most Country Inns have, but whenever we arrived from a full days activities, there was not the customary offering of complimentary cookies available.
But there is a Walgreens close by if you need to satisfy a late night sweet tooth.

The property's decor is in keeping with the 1900s charm, so we really enjoyed that. I would advise families who have various phones, laptops, etc that need outlets, to bring a power strip or an extension cord because we had trouble finding enough outlets to meet our needs.

If anyone has pet allergies, I would steer you towards another property, because every morning I saw the same guest with her adorable pint-sized dog, BOTH lounging on the sofa in the lobby. People at the front desk didn't seem to find this problematic.

When we arrived in St. Charles on a Friday before Christmas, the town was bustling. We had tried to call ahead to make reservations at a restaurant called Premiers on 2nd Street, but the phone number was out of service. When we got to our hotel, Lance at the Country Inn and Suites tried to reach the same place for us and when he could not, was most helpful in getting us into a local restaurant just after we checked in. Otherwise, we may have had to wait hours before getting into any of the jam packed restaurants.
Hotel was pleasant, clean and comfortable. We travel through here frequently on way to see family and would most definitely choose this place again. Good location, close to historic part of downtown St. Charles. The restaurant selected for us was little more than a block away.

While on a road trip towards Kansas, I stayed in this hotel.
Nice property, with a lot of things to do nearby.
Parking garage underneath the hotel can be kind of full, but there's a big parking lot behind the hotel.

Downside of the room was the airconditioning/heating system. It was pretty loud, and it didn't have an "off" switch.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and just love the location. It is located at the beginning of the historical area of St. Charles and one block from Ameristar Casino. For those who are not familiar with the area, the historical part of St. Charles is approximately 10 blocks of restaurants, quaint shops, and an assortment of bars that border the Katy Trail. The trail is right behind the hotel.

As mentioned in other reviews, the front desk personnel do an exceptional job. There is also an attractive lobby area with a selection of coffee, fresh baked cookies, and teas. One thing to note is that the hotel is designed to look as if it fits in with the historical area, so you might not recognize it as a hotel when driving by.

All in all the rooms are large, clean, and the beds comfortable. The breakfast had a nice selection of items consisting of eggs(standard fare), bacon, bagels, and an offering of fruit, juices, and other assortment of goodies. I did not see any issues with parking as some had mentioned in other reviews. Granted I stayed when the hotel was not that busy. Parking is provided in the back with parking in both the covered area underneath the hotel with access to the elevator (the elevator is not the fastest though) and also in the back parking lot. There appeared to be plenty of parking spaces.

This is a wonderfully run hotel in a great safe location for visiting both St. Charles and St. Louis. There are wonderful shops, restaurants, bars, biking and walking trails, and if you wish easy access to the interstate to the wine area. Also, St. Louis is an easy commute and beautiful Forest Park and its attractions are not to be missed. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 relate to a few cosmetic issues that are an easy fix. I did notice a few scuff marks on the walls of the room I stayed in and felt that it could be touched up a bit. And the pillows although plentiful could also include a softer one.

All in all I had a wonderful relaxing stay at the Country Inn & Suites as usual.

Room Tip: The back rooms face the trail.

This hotel is excellent and right on a wonderful running and bike trail. The young man at the front desk, Adam as awesome. Hope his boss knows what an asset he is. The hotel was very tidy and well maintained. We will look forward to coming back.

Room Tip: Room 109 was great
