Since it is within walking distance of most of Hannibal's historical and quaint riverfront town shops and attractions, I find I am really enjoying staying at this hotel. I'm in town for a temp job assignment for a few weeks, so it had to be comfortable! The bed is AWESOME, and so are the employees here--everyone greets you with a... More

My daughter, exchange student and I came to Hannibal for the Miss Mark Twain pageant. We were excited to find this hotel which was near the river. We were very pleased with the location. We were walking distance from the Mark Twain Dinette, Becky Thatcher's House and the Mississippi River, which were all three right outside of our room window.... More

Stayed here on a recent overnight business trip. No real complaints, just an average place to stay. If you are just looking for a bed to sleep in and a shower in the morning, you won't be disappointed. Breakfast was probably a little above average, with good variety.

From the friendly people at the desk, to the inviting and comfortable room, to the wonderful full breakfast, this was an all around fabulous find! My room was spacious and had been updated... and the bed was very comfortable!

Would never stay here again! During and after a dispute about my bill, I was treated in a very condescending and rude manner by the manager. I would let anyone else know to be very wary of staying at this establishment. I had what otherwise would have been a nice birthday weekend ruined by this hotel and their manager.

Three senior couples on a mini family reunion. We had a great time in Hannibal. This hotel is close to everything - the Mark Twain sites and riverfront, shopping and restaurants. The staff was wonderful - they put us in adjoining rooms, which helped a lot since one brother needs a walker and an accessible room. The breakfast was great... More

This is a nice hotel in historic downtown Hannibal. As you would expect, it's across the street from the river and is in close proximity to several restaurants. I arrived super early (breakfast was still being served) and even though I booked an Express Deal through Priceline (which I know hotels aren't all that fond of), they got me a... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights as the start of a driving vacation. The motel is very convenient; we walked to everything we wanted to see except we drove to the local mansion . In mid-October many restaurants as well as some activities were closed on Monday and Tuesday so I'd suggest checking a local calendar before planning... More

Very clean and nice room. Large amount available for breakfast. Very accomodating staff. Great price with a great view. Close to everything downtown. Was very happy with the hotel and would recommend it to others.

Best in Hannibal! Parking was a little tight and you can tell it is a older property, But the rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. I believe this is the best overall motel in Hannibal and I believe I have stayed in most. For people who want to see the local attractions it is right around the corner... More
