They did not warn us it would be under construction so when we walked towards our room, the halls were a hot mess. We didn't mind it because our room was newly... More

This hotel is in dire need of an update. The common areas to the rooms. The paint, carpet and fixtures. Good news is they are updating. Bad news is they do not tell you the hotel is under construction when you book. I am not sure what areas are getting an update so I cannot say if by June it... More

The good - easy access to the hotel from highway, near St. Louis without the cost of being in St. Louis, breakfast was good enough. The bad - For starters, the cleaning service was suspect.
