“Christ himself will need to escort you to safety!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I truly believe that it was an act of god that I survived this place. I will just get right to it... Upon arrival I was offered oral sex by a 6'3" prostitute will double d breasts and a protruding Adam's apple. Entire building smelled like feces and marijuana, witnessed what I think was a gang initiation beat down in the parking lot, observed human feces in the hallway, trash everywhere but in the barrel. Both my wife and daughter were offered career opportunities in prostituion, my wife had her backside slapped by three different thugs, I was called a cracker and honkey no less than 25 times in the half hour we lasted. Observed an employee having sex in a vacant room with the door open. At this point decided to eat the money and flee. Upon returning to car I had to run off two crackheads who were trying to steal our tires, then nearly had to run down a pimp who accused me of " dissin " his women. STEER CLEAR !!!!!!! This place needs UN peacekeepers or NATO troops, something!!!!!! Cannot believe this place is allowed to operate. I would rather spend the night in a dog kennel. Stay away unless you are an adrenaline junkie, believe me you will more than get your fill here.

I did not stay here, but spent a day at a seminar in the convention area.It has not been updated /redecorated since it was built. The carpet and curtains were old and dirty. There is a cig machine in the lobby. I went to the rec area and it was FILTHY! There must not be any housekeeping staff. I know it's cheap, but it's so nasty, please look elsewhere!

Smell of urine in the lobby. Trash overflowing. People were rude. Felt like a sauna going to my room. Room was filthy. Stains all over carpet. Beware if your a new driver for C R S T trucking. This is the sess pool they want you to stay in during orientation! I left went to super 8 .

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.....
