Picked Holiday Inn Express, thinking newer hotel than other 3 hotels in Festus would be best. Don't know about other 3 hotels but would check them out before returning to HIE. Rooms were average. Bedding/sheets were so/so, no clean fresh smelling bedding. Housekeeping didn't bother to replace empty box of Kleenex we left on bathroom counter. Housekeeping left our door... More

I was not happy having to stay outside of St. Louis, but this Holiday Inn Express is a gem. Staff is very friendly and loved they had pancakes from 8-midnight for the month of August. Breakfast was filling with lots of choices. I will be staying here again when we go see family.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one night last weekend because our son was getting married in the area. We had two adjoining suites, each with two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. The rooms also came with a little sink, microwave, fridge and dining table, so it was a very cozy setup and provided plenty of... More

This hotel was wonderful. New, clean, and modern. We stayed for a baseball tournament and were given a good group rate. The boys loved the indoor pool. Laundry facility on site was helpful for washing uniforms. Breakfast was top notch!

Went to the arch and wanted to get south of the city and decided and Festus. This hotel jumped out as new and clean and didn't miss. Nice breakfast before we hit the road. 125 all in and a panera within a mile. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Stayed in 2 adjoining suites on upper floor with extended family. Perfect for our needs. Clean room, very comfortable bed and pillows. Friendly staff. The children loved the pool. We enjoyed the quiet room and proximity to St. Louis. It's about a 30 minute commute up hwy 55 to the Arch downtown St. Louis.

The room was clean and well equipped. We were upgraded to a king suite which was nice. It was an easy check in and check out. Breakfast had a wide assortment of about everything you could want for breakfast. Seating was a little tight but we managed.

Stopped here late at night during a road trip. Have stayed before in similar circumstances en route to the in-laws and remember being surprised by the upscale finishes/contemporary design. Front desk service wasn't particularly friendly, at check in or check out, but got the job done. Room was comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was disappointing. Coffee was luke warm, cereal was stale.

I'm so sorry to hear you were less than satisfied. I'm very concerned about lack of service my front desk staff delivered. Normally guests love our breakfast. Please know I will address both these issues. My hope is we will be given another opportunity to shine. Safe travels. More
