My wife and I like to stay at Clayton's Seven Gables Inn while we are in town for shopping or for a weekend in St. Louis. We typically do not like the downown scene and this location offers a quiet and quaint view of Clayton. The hotel is clean and we have never had any issues to speak of. The...

Cozy, homey little inn that is listed on the National Register of Historic places. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was well appointed with comfortable bed and chair. We enjoyed the room in front of the inn under the gable overlooking the street. The weather was a little cold to enjoy the beautiful patio between the buildings but would love...

Weekend stay at the Seven Gables Inn was great. The Inn was built in 1920 in the "English Tudor Style" by a well healed businessman with a great fondness of the Nathaniel Hawthorne novel: The House of Seven Gables. We landed a choice room on the second floor with a view of the interior courtyard. Carl met us as we...

This older property delivers with great location and service. Rooms are clean, surprisingly large, but not without minor issues (hot water in the AM). Overall, a good choice. Our interior courtyard room was quiet. Some rooms will require taking a number of stairs.

This place is outstanding. It is a historically quaint break from the sometimes bland modernism of chain hotels. It has a bed-and-breakfast meets German cottage feel. It sits perfectly nestled in downtown Clayton, a rather beautiful upscale western St. Louis suburb. So much is within walking distance; a wine bar, nice Main Street-style shops, and restaurants a plenty. Most major...

The hotel location is close to restaurants and the metro and streets to get you to the mall or into St Louis. This hotel has no elevators which isn't a problem with luggage since they have people to lug them up the stairs for you if you wish. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There were...

I booked this stay thru Priceline and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and value. We had a very nice check-in experience with a fresh hot cookie and coffee. The room was great with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful with lots of healthy choices. I would stay here again!

I am a bed-and-breakfast kind of traveler and not a fan of the chain hotels. I love the quaintness of the Seven Gables Inn in Clayton, MO. Its location is terrific - within easy walking distance of good restaurants and many major businesses. Molly Darcy's Restaurant is in the Inn, and has excellent Irish food, and a busy lunch and...

My two children and I stayed in October of 2012. This is a small hotel in downtown Clayton. The location is good; Clayton is a decent place to stay if there is a playoff baseball game downtown that inflates the downtown hotel prices. There are very good restaurants in the immediate vicinity, and Shaw park is about 2 blocks away...
