The hotel could definitely use some updates but it was clean and decent for the price. The staff was very friendly. My friend wanted some water but the machine didn't have any so the guy at the desk gave him a cold bottle of water. The breakfast didn't look to good so we got breakfast out.

We had a reservation. As we walk in the hotel, the entire place smells terribly of smoke. They showed us the non-smoking rooms, but while the room smelled a lot better, when you put your nose to the fabric (which is how you are going to sleep), the fabric has smoking smells. They showed me another room, but it had... More

Our overnight stay here was very pleasant. We had a non smoking room. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and pleasant. The breakfast was just right to get us started for the day. The price was right. My only negative comment is that the hallway had a very strong cigarette smell in it, if they remedied this, then I would... More

I had an amazing stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the room was spotless. It is located in a quiet area located outside of St.Louis. The breakfast was a perfect and it provided a great start to our day while exploring Saint Louis! I will definitely be returning on our next visit.

We stayed three nights at this hotel. The hotel staff were great and the rooms were descent. My only problem was the occasional smell of marijuana in the hallways and it appeared to be some "dealing" going on.

At first, I was somewhat iffy about staying at this hotel, as I have never heard of the name before passing through and seeing a sign but I must say, I am very pleased. Not only were the staff wonderful by making check-in a breeze, but the rooms were very clean and easily accessible through their front or side entrances.... More
