We live in Texas, but have family in the Festus/DeSoto area. We stayed 4 days at the hotel and never once did we hear any noise while in our hotel room. We were on the 2nd floor just outside of the elevator and had no problem with noise. The hotel was very nice and clean. Our son loved the swimming... More

Spent one evening at this location. Rooms were very nice. Large, nicely decorated, and clean. Super comfy king bed. Property was well kept. The continental breakfast was above average with a larger selection than most. All staff seemed friendly. Pool area looked nice although we didn't have the opportunity to take a dip. Wi-fi seemed to work well for us.... More

On our way home from gulf shores we stopped in after midnight. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. Best hotel for the money. My young boys enjoyed the heated pool and free breakfast.

We requested a more quiet room and was given a room on the 4th floor. It was very quiet and very enjoyable. The room was kept immaculate by the housekeeping staff. The lobby was modern and very clean. We really enjoyed the stay while there and will return again in a heart beat.

Nice, new hotel. Room was clean however somewhat noisy. The air conditioner fan would cycle off when the compressor did and could hear everything in the room next door and below us. Did not sleep well at all. If you go ask if there is a way to stop the air conditioner fan from cycling, this will help keep the... More

I sincerely apologize to hear your room was noisy. I'm passing on your suggestion to my maintenance staff. We pride ourselves on being a warm a friendly hotel. Although this is no excuse, our breakfast person on that day is newer to the position and possibly got over whelmed. I will be addressing what issues she encountered. Thank you again... More

We stayed here for one night on our way from St. Louis to Memphis. We found it to be very clean, quite new and our room was well appointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good value for our money.

We stayed here twice on our recent trip.. Both times we arrived early and were assigned a room. Large rooms, fast WIFI, great TV channel selection and tasty breakfast! Will definitely return. The manager checked us in - very efficient and professional.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, well decorated and spacious. Good sound proofing even thought there were quite a few guests including kids. All areas were very clean. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. Food was fresh and hot, good selection and 2 ladies on duty kept everything
