I checked in late, all I wanted was a shower and to sleep in a room with heat. Let me preface my review with my accounting of the prior few days so you can fully understand my review. After arriving from Minneapolis in St. Louis and barely getting ahead of a blizzard that dropped a substantial amount of snow on us, we drove like crazy to my friend's house to beat the worst of the snow for my "vacation" in Columbia. The problem was, the icy snow cut off power the entire duration of my visit. We froze, had no hot water for showers or any way to heat food. The straw that broke the camel's back was the unexpected passing away of my friend's father (he was only 59) and since I was due to fly home the following day very late in the evening, we elected to pay the $50 fine for changing flights and I chose instead to take the 6am flight home so my friend could leave right away to help his mother. We were also traveling with a very well behaved, non-barking Australian Shepherd. I have worked for a very large hotel for almost 4 years now, and while I could have saved a substantial amount of money to stay with with my brand, they did not accept pets. So, we chose the Drury due to its close proximity to the airport and my friend's prior positive experiences at this hotel. Check in (around 7-8pm on 2/27) was efficient and the guest services professional was very courteous and helpful. We settled in, showered (which felt like absolute HEAVEN) in a CLEAN bathroom with plenty of towels. We each slept in a queen sized bed with the dog taking turns deciding which of us was the best companion to sleep next to. They use the triple sheeting method there so neither I, nor the dog touched anything other than the sheet under or above the cocooned blanket between them. I took the dog out a couple times in the middle of the night, out a side entrance sort of by the pool and felt completely safe and secure in that area. Thanks so much Drury Inn for providing us with a pet-friendly, reasonably priced, clean and very nice property. It was like returning from a roughing -it trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, minus the northerns on your line! I would definitely stay there again and recommend friends to do so as well.
