The management is rude, they said they don't reserve room types, you get what they have available. The food is horrible and stale. Overall, worst experience and I stay at hotels 60 days a year, I would never stay here again

We prefer to stay a little outside of bigger cities. Shalimar was a good choice for us being south of St Louis. In the middle of the night someone was pounding on our door but no other interruptions or glitches. A nice hotel. Our only complaint is an ongoing one at Best Western. Very weak coffee at breakfast. Other than... More

I received a fair rate on this hotel and was overall pleased. Pros: Large room, comfortable beds, fridge, microwave. The breakfast was much better than what I had in mind, it actually had warm meals such as eggs, biscuits, gravy and even a waffle maker (I was expecting cereal and microwavable items). This hotel is right off the interstate is... More

I made an online reservation for a smoking 2 double bed room. When I arrived I was told that they only had a non smoking room with a king bed. I needed 2 beds so I had to choose another hotel. Best Western charged my credit card and refused to refund this. Their reasoning is that a reservation only guarantees... More

Pros: beds comfortable. Hotel is located right off the interstate and very easy to find. Cons: the guy at the front desk must have been having a bad day, because he did not seem interested in helping us at all. I had to ask about the times of the breakfast, hours the pool was open, wifi internet password, etc. I'm... More

We had a wedding party from out of town stay for the holiday weekend. The accommodations were much better than they expected for the price. My daughter got married at a winery nearby and the location of the hotel was convenient for the out of town guests and wedding party. My only suggestion would be to have a "What's nearby"... More

You would be better off sleeping in your car or under the Overpass of the local freeway. This place is old and outdated and the smell of must and mildew in the air is horrible. The roof leaks and the windows leak. If you are on the 3rd or 4th floors there is no AC in the hallway's. Elevators are... More

The ac in the room did not work properly. I was there for a wedding and we had no ac in the banquet room, it was very hot in the room for the reception. None of the ice machines worked on any floors , you had to go the front desk for ice. There was bugs floating in the pool.... More

When I got in the lobby, I could hardly hear the desk clerks b/c of the wedding reception in the big room. I mentioned it, they just said it was finishing up. SO CLOSE THE DOORS!! Grrr… Then when I went to get ice, I found 3 ice machines that didn't have any ice before going to the front desk... More
