We have stayed here several times. Our last stay here was a disaster. Other guests got into a drunken brawl in the parking lot. Our truck was covered in blood. There was large puddles of blood in the parking lot. And to make it worse our tailgait on our truck was broken. The night clerk at the hotel heard nothing so they claimed. And we had to wash our own truck and repair the tailgait. I would highly recomend the cobble stone inn. We stayed there our last trip and was very pleased.

We paid way too much money for a hard bed,that We were promised would be a Serta pillow top and a continental breakfast every morning. The housekeeping was very poor. We had to aall for towels and wash clothes. The house keeper and manager cleaned the rooms sometimes and when they did they moved a lot of our stuff around the room. I worked in hotels as a house keeper and I know you are supposed to work around the guests things. I did not enjoy our stay at all. I was uncomfortable the whole time.

The web site does not list prices, only an email address and phone #. I emailed and never received a response. We got there and requested 2 rooms and the desk clerk only rang up one room. We asked about the "free complimentary breakfast" listed on the website and received a coupon for $1.50 off the overpriced food in the restaurant that is connected to the motel...our free complimentary breakfast cost us $44. My sister checked in and for a fraction of the cost got a nice room with pillow top mattress, fridge, microwave, etc. when we complained they did bring a fridge & microwave to our room but we had already been there 2 nights at that point. We had to ask for linens as they did not put washcloths and hand towels in the room after the first night. Needless to say, we will not be staying there again and will not recommend it to others.

We stopped by the night of January second. We asked the desk clerk about their lounge and any other drinking establishments. She gave us the information, and then told us they were the only hotel in Bloomfield! We pulled out the drive to head into town after check in, and could clearly see another hotel! Very disappointed to stay with a liar! The prices were also high for the dated room. (1990's)

My family recently stayed here while in town for my Grandma's funeral. EVERYONE was so nice and gracious and welcoming. It felt like staying with family. And the food at the restaurant was delicious as well as also providing excellent service.

We hunt here every year for rifle season & usually stay with family. We chose this hotel, due to booking late- everything in Kirksville was full.
I was very impressed with the price- a great deal compared to other hotels in the area.
Check-in was a breeze, they made us feel welcome.
Comfortable beds, great shower pressure, great clean room! We would stay here again.

This is an older motel that has been remodeled. They have done a very good job. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable, flat screen tvs, good selection of tv channels. Most important though is that it is very clean. The outside of the property is kept up. The hallway is rather dark but I don't know how much they could do to remedy that. I do think they are a little more expensive than they should be. They are pet friendly, the charge is $12.50, a $10.00 fee is more in line with other motels. The staff is friendly and efficient. We have stayed here several times through the years and will continue to do so.
