This looked like a new motel from the outside. The lobby was very modern as well as the exercise room and pool. The room we stayed in looked dated. BUT it was very clean and smelled fresh. The room was quiet and the bed was soft but firm. We both slept like babies! We were upgraded to a King Suite... More

We had a quick overnight in Festus and selected this from previous tripadvisor reviews. Very clean, quiet, comfortable. Nice people and no complaints at all. Easy check in and all was very good. Breakfast was free and warm, fresh and plentiful (it is what you would expect from a free breakfast but it was fine and the area was very... More

We stayed here three nights, attending a family matter. The rooms were bright and clean, and the bedding was comfortable. The staff was friendly and courteous. The hotel is located near I-55 and fairly easy to find, yet far enough away to avoid road noise.

We are in a Holiday Inn Express. Very nice. Wish I could take this room with me for the rest of the trip. Comfortable room. We were upgraded to a “suite” because of our membership in IHG rewards club. I don’t know what makes this a suite. The couch? The little divider between sleeping area and the couch, dining table?...

Wife and I stayed at this hotel after a long days work and then a long drive. The hotel was easy to get to just off I-55 on the west side of the highway but far enough away that we didn't have any road noise. First impressions speak a lot and this hotel was very clean and very helpful. They... More

We spent one night here on our way from Indianapolis to Springfield. Hotel is very nice and we slept great which is the most important thing to me. The only complaint I had, which was minor, is that there were no accessible electrical outlets near the nightstand. People these days use their mobile phones for alarm clocks and every hotel...

Went here for over night stay for a cardinal game. Place was very nice and clean. Room was comfortable. The pillows were great. Also included free bottled water in the fridge which was a nice touch. Would stay here again.

This place is one of the nicest hotels I stayed in comfortable bed clean and modern. It's better than some high end like Marriott and hilton. Plus it's 30 minutes south of St. Louis at an exit with plenty of places to eat.
