Corner room on third floor facing Mississippi River made the experience a delight. I would always ask for a room that is on the third floor and faces the river. Food was traditional. Staff was extremely helpful after a mistake in our reservation. Business center computer and printer left something to be desired. Pool is in a less than private... More

We spent one night here during a cross-country road trip. The kids (two 14-year-old boys) loved the pool and exercise room, and we all loved the fact that we were across the street from all of the happenings downtown. Our room was large and very clean, and the extensive and complimentary breakfast buffet was a big bonus. We enjoyed being... More

We stayed overnight with our three young kids (ages 3-9). It is in a terrific location. We enjoyed spending a couple of hours walking around the historic downtown area, which is only a block away. The kids loved the pool and my husband and I were happy to find it was actually warm. I usually do not sleep well in... More

This is a charming , comfortable hotel! The desk staff was very friendly, helpful, and caring. The rooms are very nice with comfortable beds and deep soaking tubs. Breakfast was very good and the breakfast room was very large, allowing everyone to take their time eating and not feel rushed. The hotel location is perfect for seeing the hostoric areas... More

A very nice hotel. The drive up the slope to the entrance is very steep and might be problematic in the winter. Ask for a room in the back if train or emergency vehicles bother you. They also have ear plugs and "readers" available. We do enjoy this hotel and stay there whenever we are in the area.

The hotel was clean, comfortable and convenient to the Bluff City Theatre. We knew in advance that the pool would be closed for maintenance. The staff was friendly and attentive. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed Saturday February 28th due to bad driving conditions from snow storm. We picked this hotel because they had a pool and we had already drove for 4 hours and our children were ready to get out and swim. When we got to the hotel the pool was drained due to "remodeling," which was very disappointing. The hotel itself... More

This hotel was located within walking distance of all the little specialty shops Hannibal has to offer. The staff were all very friendly and the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

Excellent. I would request that some gluten free items be added to the breakfast menu. Just keeping some frozen waffles, bagels, muffins on hand that can be popped in the microwave would be very much appreciated.

We traveled with our granddaughter to a swim meet being held and the Hannibal YMCA. The location was only 7 minutes from the swim meet. Excellent location for touring all of the Samuel Clemens (Tom Sawyer) historic area. Excellent access to some very good restaurants and shops. Great view of the Mississippi River.
