I recently spent the weekend in St. Charles, Missouri, visiting with a friend in the area. The location of this hotel, off the expressway and close to Lindenhurst University, the historic district, and Ameristar Casino made getting around quick and easy. The room was clean and spacious, with a king bed and a queen sofa sleeper, plus desk and dressing area. The breakfast was good and was served from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. every day to satisfy both an early riser or someone who wanted to sleep in a little. The staff was friendly and provided insight as to local favorite places to eat, shop, etc.
