We enjoyed our stay at the Meramec Caverns Motel mostly because of the location right on the river. The room was clean and big enough. We had a little trouble with one of the beds and the management attended to it immediately. Everything is right there, the entrance to the cave, a restaurant, zip line, riverboat ride, picnicking and camping.... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we did drive here to visit the caverns and take the canoe trip. After we paid $37, we were loaded in a minivan and taken to a location up river and dropped off. They set everything up for us, all we had to do was get in the canoe and start paddling. it... More

FIrst of all ..I am not sure what the picture is of with the price on top of the motel..as this looks nothing like where we stayed when there. The outside is clean and well kept. As are the rooms..some are retro, but have been kept and other rooms have been updated. Our room faced the river and picnic area... More

This is a tourist motel associated with the caverns and dates back from the early days of Rt 66. The rooms are old, but very well maintained. The TV is outdated, but It would be a waste to watch TV there anyway because the surroundings are awesome. The motel faces the campground and river which is very picturesque and quiet.... More

This review is for the Meramac Caverns, not the motel. I don't understand why there is no review topic here on T/A for the Caverns. It was a cool 50 degrees in Meramac Caverns. You decsend about 500 feet below the earths surface.The tour lasted about 90 minutes. I got some nice pictures with a digital camera. Sorry Texters and... More

Besides viewing a fantastic cavern, I have floated down this river many times the best family time I have had and loved the camping and swimming. My grandchildren are amazed and they love every minute that we stay and never want to come home it's close and their are so many things to do. I feel this is a great... More

My two adult daughters and I stayed overnight here because we were going floating the next day and one of my daughters was expecting a baby and didn't want to tent camp. The room was super outdated. It was like walking into 1970. There were a few bugs in the room, some alive, some not. We thoroughly inspected the beds,... More

We looked online for something unique and different to do and this was the place to go to for a mini getaway. The staff and security were very nice and informative, we also met some really great people they were staying at the motel also (Anthony & Cheryl) who were very nice and helped us out also. The room was... More

Traveling from arizona back home to ohio we stopped here. Rooms are comfy and remind me of growing up in the 80's. Clerk was very polite and helpful while we were there. They do keep a lock on the ice, but just ask for the key.Rooms are clean and some of them have been recently updated. Looking forward to our... More
