I was a little worried about staying here after reading some reviews about broken out windows. I drive a new truck and didn't want it messed with. The parking lot is fenced and well lit. It wasn't busy so I parked up close to the door. I had a reservation and it took less than 5 minutes to check in.... More

I've stayed at the Avyan twice recently. Both times the check-in was fine, my room was clean and nicely decorated, the TV, wifi, coffee maker, etc. worked fine. I had stayed there when it was a Holiday Inn Express and it's basically the same. Staff was nice and attentive to my needs. They charge for breakfast and the pool had... More

It took me 35 minutes to check in, and they ran my credit card multiple times. The whole place smells moldy and there is a gigantic burn hole in the carpeting on the 2nd floor. I felt moldy just being there. I will never stay again. We even checked out a day early because we felt so nasty just being... More

I was disheartened when we arrived, with our brand new car, because the area looked sketchy. Several run-down or boarded up buildings nearby. The parking lot was gated, but not guarded. Hotel is described as "historic" so maybe area is undergoing revitalization. Other reviews mentioned it had restaurants within walking distance, but all we saw were a Subway and a... More

After making reservations at the Holiday Inn Express, shortly before our trip it changed new ownership and is now Hotel Avyan. The staff was wonderful, very accommodating and friendly. Hotel was clean. Rooms had frig, microwave and with the couch, bench and chair there was a nice sitting area for family to spend time in the room together. Lobby had... More

At first I didn't think the neighborhood was too great, but the more we drove around the more I decided it was ok. The hallways had an "old" kind of smell but it wasn't noticeable in the room. The room was clean & the beds & pillows were comfortable. The breakfast was good but the dining room is pretty small.... More

Holiday Inn Express is one of the hotels we regularly stay at and I always look at TripAdvisor first. Since this was a last minute trip to St. Louis to see a ball game we decided to stay here since it was very close to Busch Stadium. If I would have read the reviews first, I would have passed on...

Reasonable price, close drive to all the major attractions, friendly/helpful staff and very clean hotel. The breakfast was good and August is Pancakes at Night month from 8-12 nightly. My kids loved the pancakes. I was not aware of any break ins during our stay. The pool is small and there is no hot tub. I would likely stay here... More

First- if there is a cardinals game don't expect to get a late checkout... they won't allow it even if ur a serious rewards person. Next- there is no hot tub and the pool is kind of small. Check in was probably the most awkward I've ever had at an HI Express.. the lady w.short blonde hair is just.. idk,... More
