A party of 5 to stay for 2 nights in 2 rooms prior to a cruise. We had another hotel reservations but they fell through and found this hotel after midnight after numerous calls to find a vacancy. So, we were desperate. And I paid the price. The whole place was dirty, rundown with peeling paint, loose carpet that was thread bare, hardly any water pressure for a shower, shampoo for one but 3 were in the room. Only the bed was comfortable, but the price I paid was over 50 bug bites to my ears, neck, back...and I could go on. I developed blisters on my ears where I had at least 5 bites on each. I had to take antibiotics to clear it up. I had to park in an alley the second night due to no room in their lot. The manager said if one came open he would let me know. This was at 11PM!!! Looking at some of the other reviews, this is NOT worth any Rewards, closeness to Busch, or anything. The microwave worked only half the time. Lamps were broke. And for all this, the price was way too high. And they did not give maid service on the second day, just changed out the towels. Run, Run, Run.
