If you are in the Hannibal area for fun, this is the place for you! Centrally located near all the Mark Twain activities and shops of downtown, this is a walk away from it all. Across the street from Mark Twain Dinette, it is right on the main drag. Clean, good staff, quiet and a great view of the Mississippi...

We stayed overnight here on our trip down the Great River Road. I booked it online. It was very easy to find. Signs pointed directly to it. At checkin I asked if we had a room with a River view and they had already put with a great one on the corner of the hotel. This was awesome as we...

Are you kidding me? Where do I start? My room looked South and East on the quiet end of the third floor,so I got to view the Lord's sunrise and sunset overlooking the Mississippi River every day! I could easily walk in the historic district or by the river as well; I am not an energetic youth,so this is a...

Very nice hotel. Rooms have just been updated. Breakfast bar is pretty good. The location is perfect. We walked to almost every thing in Hannibal (shops, restaurants, mansion tour) We were there during the Folklife Festival and enjoyed that too.

I came to Hannibal on a business trip and after reading several reviews I decided this hotel would probably be the best one in the area. There were two front desk receptionists when I checked in, one was very friendly and seemed somewhat new to her position, and the other was not very friendly at all, she wasn't engaging and...

Excellent location and easy access to walk to all of downtown Hannibal. The hotel is well maintained and clean. It feels very homey and comfortable. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise and had several choices. The front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful!

This property is just steps away from everything Twain. I could see Mark Twain's home from my window…or at least I could have if it weren't for other buildings in the way. Restaurants, bars, and historic sites are all within walking distance. The room was clean but the free breakfast left a little to be desired. I think it was...

This hotel was the best pick for the weekend. It was walking distance from the Fall Festival and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. There is a nice breakfast buffet and the rooms are sparkling.

Were planning a weekend trip to Hannibal and had no preference of hotels, just wanted something that sounded close to restaurants and shops. This hotel was ideal; there is a diner right across the street and other eating establishments either within walking distance or a short drive away.
