My husband and I stayed in the Wildlife room for a weekend getaway. The breakfast options were amazing, free bottled water, close to campus and downtown. Convenient walk to multiple breweries. Free Wifi.

Breakfasts are an experience you shouldn't miss. The special menu changes each day with outstanding variations or you can make your a la carte choices if you like. Rooms are well appointed and relaxing.

The location is great (across the street from campus) and our suite was very spacious and very clean. I would not describe it as cozy or warm, but clean and easy - we stayed on the main floor and it was nice to not have to haul our bags upstairs. The bed was moderately comfortable - we needed another blanket,... More

The Gathering Place brought me back to a time when I lived on Campus 20 years ago but was a new perspective as a working professional. The service and food was amazing. The B&B was top notch with cleanliness and amenities. We look forward to staying again in the future.

We took a quick overnight trip to Columbia to getaway. I'm a Mizzou alum and my husband had never been to Columbia. Deb let us check in early at no extra charge which was fantastic. She's friendly and lovely. It's a perfect location to walk to campus and just minutes from downtown. The house is sparkling clean and the room... More

We stayed in the chemistry suite while our daughter attended summer welcome orientation at Mizzou. The room was clean and well decorated. The breakfast was wonderful - apple soufflé pancake, bacon, hashbrowns and fresh fruit. The selection of teas for breakfast was outstanding. They offered bottled water and granola bars to take with us while walking around campus. The entire... More

We stayed in the Chemistry Suite, with a large King bed. I recommend this suite if you are partial to a firm mattress. Debbie is a wonderful hostess, and breakfast was delicious! Everything was very clean and comfortable. Thanks so much. I am giving 4 stars due to location on a busy street, but if you want to be close... More

We enjoyed the hospitality, superb cleanliness, and hearty breakfast. Convenient to campus! We would stay again, definitely. A relaxing experience, our room had everything a couple could possibly want.

Stepped out of the car and into a haven amidst the bustling Mizzou campus. Deb greeted us, showing us to the Textile Room. Very comfortable accommodations for three of us with two queen beds and a large en suite bathroom. Bring your appetite to breakfast. Breakfast is divine and worth savoring every morsel. See you again in August, Deb!
