This old motel is right on the shore of the Mississippi River. True, the place is older, but the rooms are clean! The beds were kind of hard, but the rooms were spacious. The bathroom was recently updated. The exterior has been getting some restoration since I was there a year ago. No elevators, but the view from the 3rd... More

Have wanted to stay here for years, but I was always late in trying to book and due to the Location, it is always sold out. But this time we got a Friday night. The room we had was on the second floor with a great view of the Mississippi. There is a wrap around walkway, that acts as a... More

The staff at the Holiday Shores were very welcoming. The view from our room and property of the Mississippi was amazing and the location was great too. Only complaint was stairs going up to our third floor room, but we got the last two available rooms so we were lucky. When we stay there again, and we will! We will... More

We have been visiting Holiday Shores for over 15 years now. We love the views, the people, the food, etc. The staff is very friendly. Every year we come up for our wedding anniversary and have a great time!

This motel may be a tad dated, but it more than makes up for that with SPACIOUS rooms that are clean and well kept. The rooms on the river have breathtaking views both up and down the Mississippi River. The rooms are quiet, and the outdoor seating on the balcony is a bonus. We will plan a trip back in... More

This hotel has the best location on the Mississippi! We were in room 37 which is HUGE and has 2 windows that overlook the river....gorgeous! There were 4 of us- all adults and there was plenty of space in the room. It has a small refrigerator and microwave which is very nice. The room was spotless and already cooled down... More

Me and a few of my friends got rooms at the motel for our holiday get away. Because of a few of the reviews we read we were a little skeptical but we were on a budget and they were the best priced. We were surprised, the place could use a bit of paint but the rooms were very clean... More

This motel has a convenient location and a nice view of the river, but the motel itself is just okay. When we first walked in the room I noticed the odd smell and datedness of things. I didn't realize the rooms were pet-friendly so when the comforters on the beds were covered in pet hair I was grossed out and... More

We were looking to stay on the river so that we could see the barges go by AND we needed a pet friendly place. Read the reviews already posted, so was prepared for the worst when we got there. Stayed on the 2nd floor in room 30. It was quite spacious with three big windows and plenty of seating area... More
