This place has the sad distinction of being the worst hotel/motel I've ever stayed in. Yes, it was convenient, but that was about it. The room was clean, but the door was kinda loose, the phone did not work, and the sink leaked. Plus, there was no alarm clock in the room (thankfully, I'd brought my own.) The staff was... More

I found the front desk very helpful and the room was clean. Beds were comfy and everything worked so I don't know how people had a bad experience here I thought it was good had small breakfast but most do otherwise I'd recommend staying

I brought my group of high school students here when we traveled to St Louis for a robotics competition, it was one of the only hotels we could book within the city. Sundeep Patel, is the manager, he was accommodating and somewhat paranoid about us booking 12 rooms for our team, and asked for several credit cards. After getting everything... More

This is probably the worst place I've ever stayed. Our group was traveling for the FIRST Robotics Competition at the Edward Jones Dome, so the location was appealing. One of our groups of students found a bag drugs in the pullout couch. The room was cold, noisy, smelled like smoke, and overall disgusting. We stayed 1 night and If 0... More

In the small town of st louis this is the worst ever hotel i suppose, even i got trap seeing the pic as in this one. Isolated hotel on the main highway. Only good thing is it is just adjoining the casino. You have to cross multiple road to go to the main downtown. So i preferred taking a cab... More

Me and my fiance switched rooms 5 times in a 2 night booked stay. Night one we switched because our non smoking room reaked of smoke. It was coming from the vent inside of the bathroom. The front desk said that there was nobody next to us, or below us. Which means that the ventilation system is so full of... More

The picture of this place is not what you will see when you arrive. Filthy rooms, kicked-in doors, and not safe at all!! My family checked in and checked out within hours. We never slept there and would never recommend it!!

We stayed here for 3 nights. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Edgar Jones Dome. Turns out its closer to the dome than I thought ~ literally right across the street! Its also within walking distance of the Laclede's Landing (a great place for bars and restaurants) and the Gateway Arch. The rooms need attention and... More
