“Worst hotel I have ever been to!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place was horrible! Carpet was dirty in lobby. Wires hang down from the ceiling behind the desk. There are people hanging out in the lobby with booze. The room stank, was not clean, had cockroaches in the bathtub, broken bed, torn linens, etc. I saw what appeared to be hookers going inside. I got my money back and went elsewhere. Do not stay at this hotel!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

i don't think they own a vacuum, because it was filthy,everything was run down, trashed out, and alot of drug activity going on! Also alot of prostitution going on! The front lobby guy aka Mr Wright told me that the phone lines where going to be down for 3 days! Not save for kids. Trust Me...My 7 month old son found a crack pipe it feel out of the bedding. We where here for an hour and we got are money back! Nothing about this hotel is safe and nothing about it looked like the pictures in the website! The place was crawling with mexicans and hookers! They where looking at my 8 yr old daughter. I was afraid for my safety and family's at this hotel. Please, Please stay away from here! The place should be closed down! Its scum

i stayed here between july 26 to july 29 of 2012. what you read on their website and what you see in person is two different things. smoking was allowed in the building eventhough it is against the law, the place felt like a sauna inside, the front desk employees are rude, the website states that every room has a microwave-fridge-iron and ironing board,this is a lie; there is no free breakfast or coffee, the so called hot tub does not work and you have to ask that your room be cleaned each day that you are there. and when the room is cleaned they will not leave you any amenities like soap, toothpaste or shampoo. also, they have seven areas where ice machines are at but only 3 machines work.i was up here on vacation with my mother and staying at the dump was a let down. the only part of the trip i liked was going out into st. louis to sight see and eat at sweetie pies. i lost $125.00 for 3 days and 3 nights of being in hell. avoid this place at all cost. stay at motel 6 or super 8 instead.

Room Tip: do not stay at this so called hotel you will be disappointed.

If your looking for a non classy place to stay for this would be it. Nothing about this place was special. The only thing good about this place, they had a good photographer taking the site pictures. You dont see the condoms left in the elevator, toilet seat used before you used it, or idiots working behind the counters..,........

Room Tip: No room was good. If anything, bring a hard club.....

I volunteer at a homeless shelter, which is a MUCH nice place than this dump. This could be a decent place if they would just clean up the trash and put a little effort into maintenance and cleaning. Be warned, you will probably go home with bed bugs...if not something worse!

I've read other reviews to this horror of a place and it's not at all an exaggeration. However, when people tell you that it's gross it's SERIOUSLY the most disgusting Hotel that I've EVER been in in my life. Ok, so when I was younger, yeah, I went with my boyfriend to some pretty sleazy motels that were GOLD compared to this dump.

Bridgeton, Missouri is actually a great place to live. I never knew that I would be literally walking into a nightmare. I was supposed to drop my 14 year old daughter and two of her friends there for their friends Quinceañera and when we walked in we felt like we were in the cast of a horror movie. The lobby floor was disgusting. It literally looked like a crack head working behind the front desk it was pretty comical. We went upstairs to the banquet hall and on the way up the stairs it was seriously creepy. The walls were disgusting and dirty the carpet was down right filthy. It was dark upstairs and it just gave me the weebie jeebies. My kids were even scared and 14 year olds generally have no fear. So needless to say I didn't dare drop them and leave them at this hell hole of a place. The visitor photos that they show on this site is down right A LIE! It looks NOTHING like that believe me!

OK so get this! When we were outside getting ready to get out of our car before we entered in Hotel Hell, this man and his wife asked us if we were there for the Quinceañera. I told him yes and asked if he was. He told me no that him and his wife had been staying there for several days because they didn't have any place to go. He told me that as soon as it gets dark they don't dare come out of their room and all hell breaks loose especially on the weekends. He even told me don't dare drop your daughter off alone here. He also told me that the worst ghetto in the United States does not compare to this Hotel. He was NOT JOKING!

I cannot tell you how many crack heads and junkies came in and out of this place. I cannot even begin to tell you how many car alarms were going off in the parking lot and how many police showed up as I was leaving. If you stay there, you asked for it! I SERIOUSLY cannot believe that Bridgeton would allow a place like this in their community.

I've never written a review in my life and I know I gave an ear full but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not EVER EVER EVER stay at this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worst most disgusting place I have ever been in all life. I even refused to let my two year old to walk on floor with out shoes it was so gross.. Bad smell, burn marks, cigarettes everywhere. My room didn't even look like they cleaned it, the beds were made that's it. There was vomit and gentile hair in sink upon arrival. I then requested a new room to find in the new room there was literally urine dripping from ceiling in bathroom. Manager very rude and lazy. Elevator smelt like urine
