Stayed here for business one night. Upon check in I was told I would be in the new building which is across the street and that they would have my keys available there. Staff in the main building were friendly. As other reviewers have said, the pool is in the lobby area and you are blasted with chlorine smells when... More

We were the first group to stay in the new extend building at the Best Western on the River in Hannibal, MO. We were all surprised with TWO king size beds in the rooms. The rooms were really nice. We would all stay there again when staying in Hannibal.

We were on the start of a great trip to Stirgus for the Bike Rally. Hannibal MO was our first stop. There are good views of the river from the hotel. What was nice is that there are a lot of good places to eat with in walking distance. After a long day on the motorcycle is nice to freshen'... More

The location is perfect. Park your car and walk to all downtown and river areas. Hotel staff supper friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, nicely appointed with very comfortable beds, microwave and fridge. The included hot breakfast was surprisingly good and well maintained by Carl, a man with obvious pride in his cooking and presentation. The only negative was... More

My friends and I loved how close the hotel was to all the central locations in Hannibal! We walked everywhere, hardly having to move the car. The staff were quite friendly! The only downside to the hotel was that I am allergic to cigarette smoke, and while the hotel is smoke free, we could still tell that the hotel had... More

This hotel is within walking distance of most of the attractions in Hannibal, just a block away from the Boyhood home of Mark Twain and within several blocks of multiple places to eat and shop. The room was very clean and comfortable.

This is a sweet hotel, so cozy with the halls to the rooms running along the inside walls and the open space from the first floor to the top. The swimming pool is nice, and tucked right in there. Staff was good. Parking is fine...Hannibal is hilly; that's not the hotel's fault. This was a really great place to stay,... More

For anyone who loves not just Mark Twain but American literature in general, this may be the best hotel in America. If you get a room in front, better on the second or third floor, you will have a view overlooking Mark Twain's boyhood home, and beyond that the Mississippi River, with the boats going by through the day and...

We had a change in vacation plans so at the last minute decided to go Hannibal. What a nice surprise to find this gem of a hotel. We had a great view of the river and the room was very clean and updated. The only thing I can find fault with was the chlorine scent because of the location of... More
