we went on a group scuba diving trip to the bonne terre mine. and this was the selected motel. this motel is a cheap cheap motel and you get what you pay for. it was shabby and the patrons and staff were creepy. the staff is an indian family who is not particularly friendly nor helpful. in some other reviews i read there were fleas, roaches and rodents. the plus is that i saw none of these vermin. there seemed to be a lot of welfare or transient people living in an area of the motel. the beds were dirty and old but it was not too noisy except for plumbing and creaky floors. there are no refunds.
