I have stayed here many times over the last 10 years with a group. New owners now and it's awful. No one cleaned our room, no clean towels, no coffee. The banquet room was not cleaned prior to our arrival, no table clothes for the tables; we always had access to the bar area to use the fridge, microwave, ice... More

Stayed the night for valentines day. Room was not clean. Stain on the sheets. Beds were so uncomfortable. Didn't get a lick of sleep. Would not recommend this hotel. Food selection was minimal. Guy at the front desk was friendly.

Very clean hotel room! (My number 1 priority.) Nicely (Christmas) decorated lobby w/comfortable seating for viewing their lobby's TV or reading; pleasant & accommodating staff; room was comfortable though I would have appreciated a microwave; nice mix of breakfast options; washer/dryer in the extended lobby area (interesting placement, if I may say). We were about the only guests there, so... More

It's nothing fancy not even the suites. But that being said it's clean and comfortable as well. My favorite part is its right in the park and makes for an awesome run along the waterfront and one of the nicest restaurants is in next door.

I live in saint louis and stayed at Mariner's Village for a weekend. What can I say about the experience, it was excellent. Luckily for me weather was great, so I enjoyed my whole stay there. I did see the other reviews about bugs and spider webs before going there and bit hesitant to stay at the cabin but ended... More

Spent one night here in one of the cabins. The cabins sit on a pond, nice views. That was the positive. Overpriced, dirty, outdated, bugs everywhere. It cost $175 for the five of us to stay one night. We had to sweep the floors when we arrived because of dead bugs everywhere. My brother-in-law arrived first and it was freezing... More

Spent three nights. No frills, clean, roomy rooms. Basic Dish TV, HBO. Free wifi. Minimal, free, cold breakfast. Decent restaurant next door. Good location, proximity to marina, beach, picnic area, walking/biking trails, visitor center. Short walk to dam and fishing areas. 5 minutes to Carlyle town, shops, dining.

Mariner's Village has a great location right on Lake Carlyle. I can't comment on hotel rooms because we stayed at a cabin. Pretty location on the pond. However, before guests arrived I would have gone through the cabin and cleaned out all spider webs and eggs inside and outside, in and around the beds. A wipe down of all outdoor... More

Friendly staff, very nice & reasonably priced rooms, and right next to the lake! One of our new favorite places to get away for an night. Only about 40 minutes from downtown St. Louis and a great get away to kick back & relax. We will definitely be back again soon.

We were in Carlyle for a business meeting and thought it would be nice to stay in their cabins vs. the hotel. Hotel looked nice and clean and no one had anything good/bad to say about it. The cabins are another story. Bathroom was dirty, outside was not taken care of. Very weedy flower beds and little grass. Towels and... More
