Hotel was very clean. The lobby was Beautiful. Restaurant and bar is right off of the lobby. Is in wakling distance of town and the theater was also with in walking distance where we saw Hairspray. The only negative for us was we put in a wake up call which we never got it. We would stay there again.

We spent a Thursday night here and found our king suite very comfortable. Walked around the small downtown area in the evening and enjoyed the old buildings, small parks and sculptures. Museums in easy driving distance and more restaurants around the Beltway. In hotel breakfast was very good. Only negative for us was no close access to the river walk... More

Thank you! We're pleased that you enjoyed your visit with us and St. Joe. Sorry that the river walk area is blocked from your view by the railroad and interstate highway viaduct. I do understand in the distant future the Department of Transportation is considering removing the viaduct and constructing a parkway with direct access to the river front area.... More

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel because it was a reward stay valued at 10,000 points. Upon walking in I was immediately impressed. This is a very nice Holiday Inn. Beautiful lobby, the restaurant/bar is right off the lobby, the pool area was amazing - not your typical small pool with a few chairs - but large and decorated... More

I am impressed with the restaurant great pricing but large portions. The service was spot on. The rooms are clean and the front desk checked us in with a smile even though it was a very late arrival. Large rooms pillows are what I would desire at every hotel.

I was attracted to this location because it seemed to have convenient access to the interstate and downtown locations. The property itself was adequate, but the location was not the most ideal. It seems to be a hotel that it was at its prime about two decades ago, but the neighborhood has declined a bit since then.

My family stayed at this hotel for my sister's wedding recently. The reception was in the ballroom so it was very convenient. Overall we were pleased with the hotel.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn St Joseph Riverfront from March 9th to March 14 2014. Check in went smoothly and the hotel lobby is very nice and welcoming. The rooms were somewhat disappointing and really showed their age. There were drop cords in the room that could have been a fire hazard. The rooms are in need of an... More

My wife and I stayed one night. The staff was helpful and efficient. The facility was clean with one exception. Housekeeping apparently forgot to finish cleaning our bathtub, there was still hair in it. Otherwise things were very good. The location is nice. We walked over to the river walk.
