We were moving across the country and needed a pet friendly hotel for a night as we passed through St. Louis. America's Best Value Inn was found online by my husband that morning. When we arrived I waited in the car while he checked us in and I observed several cars speeding through the parking lot, very loud music and...

This made our third stay here while attending STL Cardinal games. First time we stayed, it was "OK".. We saved money so it was a case of you get what you pay for. Second time, the room wasn't very clean. This time- oh my stars! Had to wait like 15 minutes before anyone came to service desk. We was given...

This was our family vacation and the hotel did not have one of the rooms we had reserved, but did give us one at the same reserved price. The rooms were not clean, very small, and not very comfortable. The free breakfast was good and helpful for feeding our group of 14. There was no arcade / game room as...

Two and a half stars would be about right for this motel on the southern edge of St. Louis. It had a lot of negatives (ants all around the sink although the place seemed perfectly clean, wobbly toilet, noisy a/c--the place is just generally worn and in serious need of a makeover) but it was very inexpensive and in a...

This is easily the absolute WORST hotel I've ever stayed at. Arrived only to find our room stunk like death, and the sheets I'm positive weren't changed from the previous guests. I asked for them to be changed and they bought fresh ones for us to change for ourselves. Apparently housekeeping was gone. It only got worse. Morning came to...

Wonderful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Very close to shopping areas and restaurants. I would be more than willing to stay there again.

This is very nice hotel, with a great location (convenient to downtown, south & west county, and even across the river to Illinois). Staff is always nice, and a "hot" breakfast is a welcome change from the usual "continental" of rolls or toast.
