Room was small, and sheets has cigarette burns on them. The microwave didn't work, and when I tried to see if it was plugged in (it was), I found all appliances in the room plugged into one outlet via an "octopus" that was perched precariously on a piece of scrap metal. On the plus, side, the A/C worked, and there... More

My sister booked 2 rooms during the State Fair. They were supposed to be smoke free and 2 beds in each room. When they finally found our reservations after 30 minutes of looking, We checked into our rooms and there was only 1 bed in each room. The furniture looks worse than garage sale stuff. The sheets and blankets had... More

This is the worst motel I have ever encountered. If I have a clean bed and a clean bathroom with hot water I can put up with the other things this place lacked but this place offered neither. When I made one of several trips to the office I was told someone would be down to show me how to... More

HORRIBLE, STINKS, COCKROACHES,poor service, Small room made into double bed so NO DRESSERS, you will live out of the suitcase. The fridge door hits the power cord when you open it ( the room is so small is why ) When I tried to plug something else into it the sparks let me know it was a fire hazard. You... More

Only reason this was booked was because other hotels full in Sedalia for State Fair; I cannot believe this shows it the #4 best motel in Sedalia! My box spring would not stay on the frame so it bowed in the middle and tilted like it was going to throw me on the floor. The box spring had blood on... More

When you book a place at this price point expectations for the room should probably start off low. I however can't even speak to the rooms as we never got in. We booked one room Wednesday through Saturday and one for Friday night only. When the first couple checked in on Wednesday they had lost their reservation and the couples... More

We were unfortunately duped by all the 4/5 star reviews... I'm not sure what sort of places those people are used to staying in. We asked for a non-smoking room and got one that reeked of stale cigarette smoke so badly that it woke me up at times and my clothes STILL smell like the room. When I brought this... More

After a bad experience last week at hotels in St Louis, it was very nice to stay at the American Inn! It was clean, nice, and VERY affordable! Everyone was friendly, and it was located right where I needed to be! I was worried that it was going to be one of those "roadside motels". However, I was pleasantly surprised... More

169.00 Dollars a night and have no breakfast. Couldn't see the TV from both beds,leave and come back and air condition was turned off. Very poor rooms for the price during a show. I would suggest staying at the Best Western or Comfort Inn or back off 70 and not stay there.
