Just back from a 4 day trip to the St. Louis area with my 3 children and sister. I chose this hotel based on location, cost and the favorable reviews from Trip Advisor. This hotel is clean and the staff was very accommodating. My 10 & 7 year old LOVED the indoor pool. I enjoyed the added space in our room and the pull out couch & crib that were provided for my 2 year old. The free morning breakfast was an extra savings and got our day off to the right start each morning. The location is very convenient for visiting the sites in St. Louis (approx. 20-30 minute drive) and the hotel is right off the expressway. My husband was not traveling with us on this trip and I felt very safe at this hotel and neighborhood. We ran out of time to explore the St. Charles area, but drove through the town and loved what we saw - top of our list for the next time we visit. The only negative comments I can give this hotel is that some things are starting to look a little worn (wallpaper peeling, marked up, fabric on couch needs updating) and the free wi-fi did not work on my phone. Overall, a great choice in accomodations!
