Ok so I would like to start by saying I never review places and am typically the type of person to suck it up and deal with it, so please take the fact that I am taking the time to write a review as a warning. I was traveling with my 4 year old daughter and it was 12:30 in... More

I am a frequent traveler and I understand the service differences between 1 star and 5 star hotels. It is unfortunate that our new house was delayed on when we could move in, forcing us to get a hotel room on the busiest weekend in Columbia, graduation weekend. The nice hotels were completely sold out and my fiance found Royal... More

The room was adequate. The staff friendly. The location was a bit tricky to find at first but worked out okay. The negative was that the entire non-smoking floor reeked. The room not so much, but you could still get a whiff of that stale smoke smell.

I got this for $50 on Priceline, and that was the advertised price outside when we pulled up. We just needed a place to sleep after MU beat Texas A&M to become SEC East Champs. For that purpose, it worked just fine. Pros: * Clean * Shower + tub (though I didn't use it) * Cable TV * Well-lit parking... More

A great location with friendly and helpful employees and decent although dated rooms. This is a three story property with exterior entrances and an elevator. The rooms have tubs and not just a shower as some of the Motel 6's. The parking is ample, clean and well lighted. Lots of restaurants in close proximity including a Red Lobster next door.

We used this motel on our trip back east. It is centerly located next to I-90, but is not as easy to access as some other motels. The service was good but they do not have any breakfast that is so common in the market today. The room was clean and it was very quiet that night. I would stop... More

First of all, the profile picture of this hotel is wrong. This hotel is a single, 3 story building. It is as disgusting looking though. The only reason we stayed here was because it was the last hotel room available for a Missouri football game. Our rate was $79 for the Saturday night. We weren't in the hotel other than... More

We thought we were getting the one with te good reviews when actually we were in this little honey hole. It was decently clean but no hair dryer, breakfast, shampoo, or king beds (obviously it wouldn't fit in the cell sized room) thankfully it was quiet and next to the red lobster which was great. We were so exausted from... More

Which it was. Stayed there homecoming weekend 2011. All other hotels were sold out unless you wanted to go to Jeff City or Fulton. Went with some girlfriends. We were honestly pretty nervous about staying there so the good news is, we survived. Yes, it was sketchy and not great but hey, no bedbugs and the people were at least... More

I got in at like 11 pm so I got one of the last available rooms on the top floor. It had just rained, and the carpet in my room was soggy. So, not only did my socks get wet, but I was also undoubtedly breathing in mold, since I doubt that's the first time that room has flooded from... More
