The last time we drove to St. Louis, we stayed just outside of Bloomington, and paid about $30 more. It was worth driving a little farther. This hotel was right off I55 in Lincoln, and we really had no complaints, though we were on the highway side, and my husband noticed the traffic noise, as he is very sensitive to...

This hotel was certainly an adequate facility for an overnight stay - clean and comfortable. However, it was far below typical Holiday Inn Express caliber. Very small lobby space with no seating. Business center was a counter across from the check-in. Very small breakfast area.

If there was anything I would change it would be to offer a stiffer bed. The beds are a little soft for the back issues I have. Other than that the staff is always friendly and are very easy to talk to.

I originally reserved a room with two queen beds and if possible on first floor. When I checked in I was told that I had requested a king suite. When I got to the room it was one queen bed. Also it was on the third floor right across from the elevator and adjacent to the noisy ice machine. When...

Mr. Pahnke - I apologize for the experience during your recent stay. I can understand all of these frustrations adding up to a negative experience. I have personally reviewed your reservation and it's history. Most of this confusion stems from it being reserved at booking.com. This is a third-party site that we have little to no control over. Your reservation...

Nice big rooms! The hotel staff was amazing we were the last of the group to check in due to car trouble and it was late,so we ended up with a double room. The next morning they moved us to a king suite and it was awesome! Close to highway, gas,stores and food! Breakfast was standard,but okay! Would definitely recommend!!!!

We found the staff and service to be very good. We had no complaints about our stay. Rooms were clean, breakfast area was clean and well staffed. The breakfast selection was very good. Lots of restaurant choices near by and the Russell Stover Candy Store almost shares a parking lot with them.
